Penguin Computing has announced the immediate availability of the new Altus 1750 server, a dual socket 1U system built specifically to support the fastest clock speeds available for AMD Opteron x86 CPUs. The Altus 1750 is designed to deliver the best price/performance combination in the market for high clock speed (including over-clocked) systems, and is the only production system designed to do this for an AMD Opteron platform. It has an optimised cooling design and is suited to high frequency trading and other low latency applications.
