8-core portable = flextop

By: Robert Thomson

The Pro and Evo systems from NextDimension are based on the Intel Xeon 5300 processor and the low power consumption provides the muscle of 8 cores in a somewhat portable package. The two models will be presented at Interop Las Vegas 2007 in order to sustain NextComputing's claims that it strives to stay ahead of tendencies in the industry. And it will do just that considering it uses only 12.5W per core, that means it offers 35% less processor power consumption product than the mainstream Quad-Core versions.

But loads of processing power is not all, this portable supercomputer can also be set up with up to twelve 2.5" drives, 160GB and 7200 RPM each. In addition to that it offers Gigabit Ethernet, Firewire port, four PCI / PCI-express slots, onboard hardware RAID controller, and much more features that make the NextDimension Pro and Evo truly portable supercomputers.
