HP VISUALIZE X-CLASS WORKSTATION SETS NEW PERFORMANCE STANDARD.
HP VISUALIZE Personal Workstations continue to lead the competition in satisfying processing requirements of large, complex Windows NT-based mechanical design automation (MDA) and digital content creation (DCC) applications.
According to an industry-standard application benchmark, APC Pro/ENGINEER, the HP VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstation with a 733MHz processor, HP VISUALIZE memory architecture and award-winning HP VISUALIZE fx6+ graphics outpaces competing Intel Pentium III-based systems with the Intel 840 chipset by 19 percent(2). This enables engineers and artists to get faster results, allowing them to apply more creativity, ingenuity and analysis to their work.
"Our customers rely on HP to help master increasingly complex technical- computing requirements," said Jim Zafarana, worldwide marketing manager for HP's Technical Computing Division. "With superior application and graphics performance, the HP VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstation enables our customers to achieve the best results in the shortest time period."
Leading Value-added Technical-computing Solutions
The HP VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstation features the VISUALIZE memory architecture, which uses a powerful industry-standard chipset that delivers lower memory latency than common Windows NT-based workstations. This means less processor idle time and more efficient application performance, essential for customers who must process large, complex data quickly. Also, systems configured with 4GB of RAM using SDRAM are much less expensive than those configured with RDRAM.
Standard on all HP VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstations are as follows:
- advanced compute power -- single or dual 733MHz or 800MHz Intel Pentium III processor, up to 8GB or more of SDRAM, 256KB high-speed cache, VISUALIZE memory architecture and a 133MHz front side bus;
- integration into UNIX(R) system environments -- NFS Client and X- Server from WRQ, UNIX system command utilities and shell from MKS;
- mass storage expandability -- up to 54GB internal disk, Ultra3 SCSI controller and choice of CD devices -- CD, CD-RW or DVD;
- increased reliability and manageability -- HP TopTools 4.5, HP MaxiLife II; and
- HP's world-leading VISUALIZE fx graphics subsystems.
In addition to the VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstation, HP also announced its value-priced HP VISUALIZE P750C and P800C Personal Workstations, built around the latest Intel 750MHz and 800MHz Pentium III processors.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
The new HP VISUALIZE Personal Workstation product line starts at $2,899. The new HP VISUALIZE X-Class Personal Workstations will be available through HP's direct and indirect sales channels with U.S. estimated prices beginning at $6,470(3).
