HP VISUALIZE Workstations Power Deskside Models K260-EG and K460-EG

Product Brief

The HP VISUALIZE Workstations Power Deskside Models K260-EG and K460-EG 
combine HP's most expandable workstations with the industry-leading HP
VISUALIZE-EG Graphics Technology. These workstations deliver the
ultimate performance for engineering and scientific applications. 
Powered by the high-performance PA-8000 processor, providing large 
memory capacities and supporting HP VISUALIZE-EG graphics, the 
K260-EG and K460-EG are ideally suited for complex and compute-intensive
applications such as electronic computer-aided design, mechanical 
computer-aided analysis, and other scientific applications. With the 
strength of multiprocessing, K-Class workstations can serve as a shared 
workgroup computing resource as well.
