Xserve and Xserve RAID

Today, Apple announced an upgrade to Xserve and the availability of the new Xserve RAID. The new Xserve features single or dual 1.33 GHz processors, up to 2 GB of 333 MHz DDR SDRAM, two 64 bit 66 MHz PCI slots, dual Gigabit Ethernet, FireWire 800, USB and four ATA/133 hard drive bays that can support up to 0.72 TB of storage space. All of this, of course, fits within a 1U rack-mount enclosure. The Xserve ships with OS X server with a license for unlimited clients.

The long awaited Xserve RAID is a 3U rack-mount hard drive array that can handle up to 14 hot swappable drives. This gives a maximum capacity of 2.52 TB. The Xserve and Xserve RAID can optionally communicate via a 2 Gb fibre channel over extended distances. (chm)

As Promised: Motorola's 7457!

Motorola today officially announced the first line of PowerPC 7457 (and 7447) processors. The processors are available at up to 1.3 GHz, which again raises the questions, whether Apple uses overclocked (or not-officially-supported) 7455 processors in their high end PowerMacs. It's also - as of yet - unclear, whether the new PowerMacs at 1.42 GHz will use the 7457 processors. More details in the link below. (fryke)
