    HP has jumped off the Intel bandwagon to introduce its most powerful desktop workstation to date. Designed for graphics- and data-intensive applications such as digital content creation, oil and gas exploration, or software development, the HP xw9300 Workstation combines one or two 64-bit AMD Opteron processors with one or two Nvidia Quadro PCI Express graphics accelerators, taking advantage of Nvidia's SLI technology and two PCI Express x16 slots. The motherboard features Nvidia's nForce Professional chipset with AMD-8131 HyperTransport PCI-X tunnel, supporting one PCI-X 100 and two PCI-X 133 slots, one PCI slot, Gigabit Ethernet, integrated Serial ATA 2, and up to 16GB of DDR400 ECC memory.

    The rackable minitower chassis holds a 700-watt power supply with three external 5.25-inch and five internal 3.5-inch drive bays for up to 1.5 terabytes of storage. Configuration options range from a single Opteron 246 (2.0GHz) to dual Opteron 252 (2.6GHz) CPUs; one Nvidia Quadro NVS 280 (2D) or Quadro FX 540 (3D) to dual Quadro FX 3400 graphics cards; 7,200-rpm Serial ATA hard drives up to 400GB; 10,000-rpm Ultra320 SCSI drives up to 300GB; 15,000-rpm SCSI drives up to 146GB; CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD-ROM/CD-RW, or dual-layer DVD±RW; and Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation 3 Update 4 (64-bit). Prices start at $1,899 and go (way) up.
