AMD's Direct Connect architecture, which includes an integrated memory controller and HyperTransport technology links, accelerate performance of bandwidth and compute-intensive applications.

The xw4550 (pictured) also has six storage bays, simultaneous support for 32- and 64-bit applications, 4 DIMM slots and up to 4 GB of ECC memory, providing users with upgradeability features typically found in higher-end workstations.

The HP xw4600 Workstation - available in November - is priced below $900 and offers a choice of Intel Pentium Dual Core3, Intel Core 2 Duo, Intel Core 2 Quad, or Intel Extreme dual- and quad-core processors. The new Intel X38 Express chipset and next-generation 2D and 3D Nvidia and ATI graphics help the xw4600 to affordably support the data-intensive professional applications.

The xw4600 has support for DDR2 memory up to 800 MHz. Its dual PCIe X16 Gen 2 graphics interfaces deliver up to twice the performance bandwidth of previous interfaces and provide support for up to four high-performance 3D graphics displays.

The inclusion of 12 USB ports (seven back, two front, and three internal) as well as six SATA interfaces, give users plenty of options for add-on flexibility. The xw4600 is also Energy Star qualified to help customers conserve energy and reduce costs.
