IBM brings 5GHz chip to its top-selling Unix server

The Power 570, IBM’s top-selling midrange server, is now available with a 5GHz Power6 processor, which was previously available only in IBM’s high-end Power 595 system, as IBM targets customers who want to use its hardware for virtualization and server consolidation. The manufacturing yields for the 5GHz chip have been good enough that IBM can offer it in higher-volume systems, said Scott Handy, IBM vice president of worldwide marketing and strategy.
