Sun boosts Sun Fire V1280 processor

Sun Microsystems is boosting the processor clock speed on its 12-way Sun Fire V1280 server.

The V1280 will ship with 1.2GHz UltraSparc III processors, instead of the 900MHz it had previously included, effective Thursday, Sun said.

The 56 centimeter-deep (22 inch) midrange systems are designed to fit into any standard rack, Sun said.

Pricing on the system starts at US$68,995 for a 4-way system. The 12-way V1280 starts at $160,995.
