HP gears up for IA-64

HP gears up for IA-64

Hewlett-Packard Co. last month made announcements that straddle the line marking the Unix-Microsoft Windows NT divide.

HP's new 64-bit, four-way symmetrical multiprocessing Visualize J7000 workstation comes with 4G to 8G of synchronous dynamic RAM and 440-MHz PA-8500 RISC processors.

The J7000 starts around $50,000 with an 18G Ultra2 SCSI hard drive, a large monitor, Visualize-EG graphics, eight PCI slots, a 10/100-Mbps network interface and HP-UX 11. The workstation can run about a dozen 64-bit Unix applications for engineering design and several other apps for four-way SMP. For a software list, see the company's Web site, at www.hp.com/visualize.

HP also completed testing of HP-UX 11 on Intel Corp.'s forthcoming 64-bit Merced processor, which originally was to be ready in 1997 and will implement the IA-64 architecture for both Unix and NT.

Contact HP's federal office at 410-362-7627.
