Fujitsu to produce quad-core SPARC

By Justin Mann on
IT giant Fujitsu will be producing several new Sun-based SPARC cpus in the near future, including a quad-core 2.7GHz SPARC CPU, destined for enterprise servers in 2008. The CPU design will share a very large L2 cache among all cores, and will use the still in-design Jupiter chipset, designed to succeed the as of yet unreleased Olympus, which is going to be a similar product with two cores, available for businesses in about a year. The UltraSPARC series is noticed for their reliability and stability for mid range to enterprise level systems, in the same market as the Itanium and Power. Sun and Fujitsu have teamed up over the years to help compete against industry dominant IBM and other offerings from Intel.
