1 backplane networking, while the PENTXM2's VITA 38 intelligent platform management interface (IPMI) enables ease of scaling into a multiprocessing system
The Conduction-cooled 800 MHz 7447A Multicomputer is a COTS multiprocessing system
for use in extreme environments.
As there is supposedly no latency penalty it is more akin to a conventional symmetric multiprocessing system
than a ccNUMA system.
Functioning as a system master processor blade in a CompactPCI multiprocessing system
, the device supports hosting of hot swap peripherals.
Unisys, long a price/performance leader in high-end Intel processor-based systems, is continuing this trend by bringing true enterprise class functionality to the Linux environment, to large scale multiprocessing systems
based on both Intel Xeon processors MP and Itanium2 processors.
announced a new modular multiprocessor system at last month's Supercomputing '96 in Pittsburgh that extends the performance envelope of symmetric multiprocessing systems
The PowerPC architects paid particular attention to defining PowerPC Architecture details, making it flexible and scalable, thus providing plenty of room for growth across a varied family of processors suitable for a wide range of designs--from high-performance, multiprocessing systems
to handheld computing devices.
Intel is also said to be preparing to launch another long-awaited part - the Profusion chipset for building eight-way multiprocessing systems
, based on technology Intel acquired fifteen months ago from Corollary Inc (CI No 3,258).
