Fujitsu Computer Systems on Tuesday introduced the fifth generation of its SPARC64 processor, the last in its series of Sun Microsystems SPARC-compatible processors before the two start collaborating on their unified Advance Product Line (APL) server development. <P> Fujitsu and Sun officials early this month said the two would combine their server lines in 2006, replacing Fujitsu's PrimePower and Sun's Sun Fire servers. <P> Richard McCormack, vice president of product and solutions marketing at Fujitsu, said the Fujitsu SPARC64 V processor is being manufactured using the 90-nanometer process, compared to the 130-nanometer process used with the fourth-generation CPU. The new processor has a clock speed of 1.89GHz, up from 1.35GHz, and the level-2 cache was increased 50 percent to 3 Gbytes. Overall, the SPARC64 V performance is up about 35 percent compared to the SPARC64 IV, he said. <P> Fujitsu plans to start selling eight-way and 16-way servers with the new SPARC64 V processor starting in September, with 32-way and 128-way models expected to arrive starting in December, McCormack said.
