50 percent performance boost


IBM
has released a new mainframe which it claims is 50 percent faster and has dramatically lower energy costs.

The new System z10, which costs a million dollars, is designed to help companies and government agencies that rely on mainframes handle a flood of Internet information.

It took five years and $1.5 billion to develop and is the equivalent of 1,500 x86 servers. The new machines have 64 processors, compared to the 54 processors used in its predecessor, the z9. The chips are quad-core designed and are better at multi-tasking.
