SUN seems to be planning a Blitzkrieg

According to this Register report, SUN is planning some Opteron blades with "vastly higher I/O bandwidth, thermal capability and RAS features than anything else on the market today."

A SUN insider claimed that "[t]his will let us go through multiple processor generations from quad to octal core*, and multiple memory and I/O generations without requiring changes in chassis, power supplies and other components." Hmm, John Fowler said these things during the AMD analyst meeting. SUN is going to bring system longevity to x86.

Exciting times ahead.

*Indicates socket F (1207)
