Fujitsu Taps into Intel Clarkdale Chips to Power Primergy Server Line


Desktop users aren't the only ones who stand to benefit from Intel's 32nm Clarkdale processors. Fujitsu on Thursday announced plans to outfit at least two new entry-level, single-socket Primergy servers with Intel's new chips.

"The flexibility and power of [the two servers] make them ideally suited for general all-around use, and they are affordable enough to be very attractive to clients in the small and mid-sized market sector," Richard McCormack, senior vice president of Fujitsu's Server and Solutions Business, said in a statement.

The announcement comes on the same day Intel officially lifted the curtain on Clarkdale, which took an investment of $7 billion in four fabs to make possible.

Fujitsu's Primergy TX150 S7 tower system and RX100 S6 rack server are the two models that will use the new chips, and both are aimed at small and medium businesses. According to McCormack, they can also be used in non-mission-critical scenarios, such as Web server farms.
