HP zx2000

Overview

The HP zx2000 workstation are the Itanium/IA64 brothers of the PA-8800/PA-8900 C8000 workstations. Build around the same HP zx1 chipset, the zx2000 is very similar to the C8000 but delivered with Itanium 2 processors. The system is built in a sleek and quiet tower casing and also available with a rack-mount option. Relative shortly after the zx2000 HP dropped Itanium workstations from its portfolio. The remaining HP-UX/Itanium offerings are IA64 server systems (the Integrity rx).

Time of introduction: 2002, discontinued: September 2004, with prices at time of introduction between US $4,000 (entry configuration), $6,000 (average) and $11,000 (large).
