Server company releases new AMD model

Angstrom Microsystems, a small Boston company specializing in thin servers, has released a new model that squeezes two servers, each with two Advanced Micro Devices Athlon 2100+ processors, into a case that's 1.75-inches, or "1U," thick. The system, designed to be bolted into regular 19-inch racks, typically costs between $4,000 and $5,000, depending on configuration options, spokeswoman Rachel Sun said.

AMD is trying to crack into the server market but thus far hasn't received support from the largest companies, which prefer in-house processors or those from Intel. Angstrom systems were used for the brute-force processing needed to produce digital special effects in the movie "Scooby-Doo," and the company has sold systems to Pixar as well, Sun said.
