HPC Systems Announces A5220HS Server
Posted on: 11/18/2004 04:05 PM

HPC Systems has announced the availability of its A5220HS Server which is based on eight AMD Opterons!
The A5220HS leverages the AMD64 Direct Connect Architecture already standard on all AMD OpteronT systems through Iwill's HTX-ProT HyperTransport interconnect. HTX-Pro uses the same HyperTransport technology bus that connects memory, I/O and processors to also connect expansion I/O devices directly to the AMD OpteronT processor at 6.4GB/s (or higher if available) of total bandwidth per HyperTransport technology link. HTX-ProT allows for a modular system design, freeing the motherboard from handling expansion buses and devices such as PCI, PCI-X and InfiniBand by concentrating those functions into separate system boards connected by HTX-Pro, allowing the I/O portion of the system to be upgraded without replacing the entire platform.
