"The cluster--comprised of 1100 G5-based dual processor cluster nodes--was recently upgraded to 2.3 GHz Apple Xserves, AppleInsider confirmed this week. This latest boost represents the cluster's second transformation in less than a year. Due to a stringent need for error correcting code (ECC) RAM, in January--a mere three months after its inception--System X was overhauled from dual-processor Power Mac G5s to dual-2GHz Xserve G5s. "
