Sun Boots Server with Niagara II Chip

Sun has booted its Solaris operating system on a server with a prototype of its forthcoming Niagara II processor, one key milestone for the company’s attempt to restore the relevance of its Sparc processor family. The first Niagara chip, formally called the UltraSparc T1, is used in the Sun Fire T1000 and T2000 servers that have come to market in recent months. Niagara II keeps its predecessor’s relatively low 70-watt power consumption and extends its ambitious design elements, multiple processing cores and execution threads.
