Further extending its product line beyond notebooks, Toshiba last week introduced servers that offer up to four 400MHz Pentium II Xeon processors.
Toshiba unveiled the Magnia 7000 series enterprise-class server, which offers manageability, reliability, and serviceability features that tailor the system for applications such as data-warehousing, database, I-commerce, and high-volume business processing, the company said.
The Magnia 7000 supports up to four 400MHz Intel Pentium II Xeon processors and is designed to support future Intel processors.
Intel today offers 450MHz Xeon processors capable of two-way operation, and is expected to introduce a four-way, 450MHz CPU early next year.
The 400MHz Pentium II Xeon features either a 512KB or 1MB Level 2 cache memory, a 100MHz front-side bus, enhanced memory architecture, and scalability advancements.
"With Intel's highly scalable Pentium II Xeon processor for servers, Toshiba is addressing the performance requirements of high-end server computing environments and enterprise customers," said Tom MacDonald, marketing director at Intel's Enterprise Server Group.
