NASHUA, N.H., March 25 /PRNewswire/ — NextComputing announces the incorporation of low wattage Intel(R) L5420 Xeon(R) 45nm Quad Core processors (Harpertown) into its line of NextDimension flextop computers.

"The Intel Xeon processor 5400 series helps enable NextComputing to provide a unique form factor in the high-performance workstation market," said Boyd Davis, General Manager, Intel Server Platforms Group Marketing. "Their innovation takes advantage of Intel's 45nm High-K silicon processor technology, coupled with second-generation PCI Express, faster buses, and smarter memory, and provides end users across a number of vertical industries an opportunity to solve the most complex visual computing challenges."

Bob Labadini, NextComputing President and CTO, adds, "Our new NextDimension workstations based on the Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 5400 series and 5400X chipset set a new benchmark for visualization platforms. They deliver the processing performance and infrastructure to simulate and visualize complex data at unheard of speeds. But it is more than single application speed. Our users are beginning to harness the capability of these new workstations with 2 processors and 8 computational cores by employing parallel workflows to compress the time between an idea and a product."

NextComputing offers up to (2) Harpertown Quad Core processors in the following models: NextDimension Pro and Pro HD, NextDimension Evo and Evo HD, and Vigor Pro SD. These new processors allow NextComputing solutions to maximize performance, improve throughput, and reduce power consumption for professionals in digital media, medical imaging, test and measurement, oil / gas, and military intelligence, so they can solve problems faster, process larger data sets, and meet greater challenges.

The Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor 5400 series provide an increased clock speed of 2.5 GHz and 12MB cache, enhancing application performance in graphics, video encoding and processing, 3D imaging, application servers, data mining, and pattern recognition and data compression algorithms.
