Sun Set to Deliver World's First 64-Threaded Systems On Time in 2007
With the world's first 64 threaded processor, Sun's UltraSPARC T2 processor is set to deliver twice the performance of current UltraSPARC T1 processor-based systems within the same power envelope, demonstrating continued innovation and leadership for Sun in CMT. Architectural and performance enhancements in the next-generation UltraSPARC T2 processor architecture will enable Sun to broaden the addressable market for chip multi-threaded systems, continuing to set the industry standard for throughput performance and low power consumption for the next phase of the Internet build out.
"UltraSPARC T1 processor-based Sun Fire T2000 systems are setting a new industry-standard for performance and power consumption in the datacenter and the industry is following Sun's lead in CMT," said David Yen, executive vice-president, Scalable Systems Group, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "The tape-out of the next generation UltraSPARC T2 processor design reinforces Sun's multi-year lead over the competition and, more importantly, gives customers a great roadmap of unmatched system throughput with millions of dollars of bottom line power, cooling and space cost savings."
