running at 2.83GHz per core and featuring 6MB of L2 cache per pair of
cores calls Paul Venezia's office at InfoWorld Test Center home. In
addition, Venezia's X4150's features include four 10K, 72GB drives,
16GB of RAM, four gigabit Ethernet interfaces and three PCIe slots --
all in a 1U footprint. Venezia put the server to the test and reports
the results.
