HP is to launch a new high-end server this month to help customers already hitting their server processing limits.

The new Unix-based server will initially be based on Intel’s Madison processor, and later be replaced by Intel’s delayed Montecito Itanium processor which is much more efficient.

The new server is the latest in HP's high-end Superdome line. Even with Madison, HP maintains that processing performance for many tasks will be boosted by around 30%. Last October, Intel delayed the launch of Montecito from 2005 to mid-2006.

IBM is the leader in the Unix server market, and uses its Power processors in its systems. HP is number two, followed by Sun Microsystems, which recently launched its UltraSparc IV+ processor-based servers.
