Oracle and SUN "Sun announced Niagara 2 the other day, an evolution of the older Niagara 1, now called the UltraSPARC T1. From the 10000-foot view, it all looks quite familiar, but once you delve into the details, it quickly becomes apparent that almost everything has changed."

When can we buy a system?

While a Sun partisan, I can't stand teasers--hate them immensely. When you announce, you had better be able to ship soon, but I haven't even seen a date. Until the systems are orderable, I could not care less how great the chip is going to be.

Should be announcing revenue release of actual systems within the next couple of weeks, with shipments before the end of the year.

I've got a T5220 (the T2000 "replacement") alpha unit in a lab at work. It's a pretty fantastic box; we're seeing at least double the performance of the T1 processor so far.
