Sun Ultra 3 Mobile Workstation review

  • Free Software Magazine; By Martin Brown (Posted by fsmdave on Apr 28, 2006 9:57 AM EDT)
  • Groups: Sun; Story Type: News Story
Sun have made some headlines in recent months through the release of their Ultra 20 workstation and a number of new servers based on the AMD CPUs. For some this is seen as major change of direction for a company that is well known for the use (and continued interest and development) of the SPARC (Scalable Processor Architecture) CPU. With so many new machines being based on the AMD CPU it will be surprising to some that Sun’s new mobile units are based on SPARC technology.

I know that anyone studying for a certification and living within a budget wants to gain the maximum amount of value for the least amount of outlay.

The number of possibilities to integrate multimedia into the desktop experience make Phonon especially interesting.
