NextDimension Quad Xeon

NextComputing today unveiled a unique performance upgrad to its NextDimension Evo and Pro PCs. Dubbed "flextops" for building a desktop's performance into a briefcase-sized system, the PCs are some of the first semi-portables to include quad-core Xeons: the use of Intel's newer low-power CPUs cuts power to less than 50W for the whole chip compared to 80W for the normal version, letting it run coolly and with a smaller power supply. Two quad-core chips can fit into one computer for situations that require eight cores, the company says. Each system also uses Seagate's recent 160GB, 7200RPM drive for desktop loading times; Evo models can store as many as 12 of the drives for especially demanding tasks.

All of the NextDimension systems come with four PCI or PCI Express expansion slots, room for up to 24GB of memory, and expansion through either SATA or SAS drive connections. The prices of the systems haven't been revealed, though both Evo and Pro systems are available today either with a 17-inch, 1920x1200 LCD (in HD models) or as towers alone.
