Finally, Compaq releases new Alpha server chip

Author: JT Smith

From ZDNet News: "Compaq Computer released a new version of its Alpha processor for servers on Monday amid
signs that the outlook for the chip is improving.

The new Alpha 21264 runs at 833MHz and will be included in Compaq's (NYSE: CPQ) AlphaServer
ES 40 line of servers, machines that sell for tens of thousands of dollars and up. Some customers,
including biotechnology companies, already had access to early versions of the server. Today's
announcement, however, signals the beginning of general commercial availability."
