IBM Boosts Linux/Unix eServer p690

IBM on Tuesday beefed up its Unix/Linux eServer p690 server by boosting the processor and adding more memory to
the hardware.

The upgrade to the p690, which comes in a series of configurations -- 8-, 16-, 24-, and 32-way -- puts 1.9GHz Power4+ processors in the server and
doubles the maximum amount of memory to a full terabyte. Other enhancements include faster memory speeds -- from the earlier 567MHz to 633MHz -- and
128MB of Level 3 cache.
