Product Brief

HP VISUALIZE Workstation Power Deskside Model K460-XP

The HP VISUALIZE Workstation Power Deskside Model K460-XP combines 
HP's most expandable workstation with the  industry-leading HP 
VISUALIZE-48XP Graphics Technology. These workstations deliver the 
ultimate performance for engineering and scientific applications. 
Powered by the  industry-leading three-dimensional graphics, HP 
VISUALIZE-48XP Graphics, and the powerful PA-8000 processor, the 
K460-XP is ideally suited for complex and compute-intensive 
applications such as mechanical computer-aided design and analysis and 
other scientific applications. With the strength of multiprocessing, 
the K-Class workstations can serve as a shared workgroup computing 
resource as well.
