HP Xeon processors a big hit
Dubai, March 3, 2008
HP customers are experiencing performance increases of up to 400 per cent since the launch of its first workstations based on Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors a year ago.
The company has also claimed that its customers have achieved double-digit gains in productivity and faster return on investment in the same period.
Companies use HP workstations to design everything from running shoes to race cars, animated characters to deep-sea submersibles, and to manage everything from billions of dollars of tradable securities to mission-critical IT environments, said an official spokesman.
During the past year, HP workstations based on Intel Xeon processors have continued to ramp up in sales. According to market-research firm IDC, HP is the market leader for total workstations in the Middle East in Calendar Q4 2007, with 54.5 per cent market share.
HP’s workstation growth has been driven by fast-developing economies, vertical markets, and workflow and productivity transformations that quad core technology brings to customer environments.
Today, HP followed up on this momentum with the introduction of two eight-core workstations in the Middle East – the HP xw6600 and HP xw8600 – both powered by two next-generation Quad-Core and Dual-Core Intel Xeon processors.
“Customers can expect HP to be first to market with leading-edge technology at a great value, while improving the workstation customer experience,” said category manager for workstations and thin clients, PSG, HP Middle East, Yan Bergeron.
The new workstations are designed to meet the needs of some of the most computing-intensive industries, including software design, architecture, high-definition video, game development, scientific imaging and oil exploration. – TradeArabia News Service
