Sun says UltraSparc V two chips in one

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Sun Microsystems has only just started delivering its UltraSparc III processor, but already
the company is touting the split-personality of its upcoming UltraSparc V chip.

The UltraSparc V will be able to switch between two different modes depending on the type of
work the computer is doing, said David Yen, general manager of Sun's processor group. One
mode will be good for heavy-duty calculations, the other for business transactions such as
recording or retrieving information in a database."
