Sun’s marketing out to confuse the world

As noted in my previous post, that there is an ultra 45, turns out my internal sources inside Sun say that it’s a Sparc based workstation. Can it get any more confusing? Untill the Ultra 20, all Sun Ultra’s were SPARC based, then they went and muddied the waters with a Ultra 20, and soon to be released Ultra 40, that are AMD Opteron based system, now Marketing has the Ultra 45 on the table supposedly a SPARC machine? How do they justify there numbering scheme.

For more blogs related to Sun, workstations, x64, sparc, Opteron, marketing OpenSolaris and Solaris.

You don't really need internal sources to tell you the Ultra 45 is a SPARC. Just do a search on Sun's web site. That will point you to a copy of the Solaris 10 Sun Hardware Platform Guide which lists the Ultra 45 under SPARC systems. Its platform name is SUNW,A70 codename Chicago.

hopefully the u45 uses a shallow motherboard like the SB2500 it is replacing
