The new models feature Intel's Xeon technology, which includes hyperthreading and an 800MHz front-side bus.

    Gateway on Monday announced three servers that it says are suitable for customers in the business, education and government sectors.

    servers.


    The servers feature Intel's E7520 and E7320 chipsets and Xeon processors, along with hyperthreading technology and an 800MHz front-side bus. (The bus is the pipeline for data flow from the processor into memory.)

    The new servers also support 64-bit extended memory technology, Gateway said.

    The new 9510 tower server series replaces the 960X and 980 servers, while the new rack-mounted 9515 series replaces the 975 server, Gateway said.

    The third offering Gateway has unveiled, the 9315 series, replaces the company's 955 server. The 9315 is also rack-mounted.

    All three of the new servers include Intel's 64-bit Xeon processors, which feature the 800MHz front-side bus, new PCI Express architecture and 1MB level 2 cache. A chip's cache is a pool of memory that stores data close to the processor core.

    The 9510 includes integrated dual-channel Ultra320 SCSI with embedded hardware, RAID 0, 1 and 5 options, and a redundant power supply and fan options.

    Pricing of the 9510 series begins at $1,199 and that of the 9515 series at $1,499. The 9315 series starts at $999, the computer maker said.

    Gateway is a relatively small player in a server market dominated by giants like IBM and Hewlett-Packard.
