The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
IntelliStation A Pro
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
IntelliStation A Pro
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Personal Computers, PCs for short, are computers for personal usage. They always have the following components:\
- A processor (CPU), this is the heart of your computer, where the data processing is done.\
- Memory (RAM), this is very fast memory in which temporary data is stored before being processed by the processor.\
- Motherboard, this is the component that connects all the different parts of your computer. Often it has some integrated components like a sound card, enabling your computer to play sound, or a network card, to connect your computer to the network.\
- Video board, this is the part of your computer that is responsible for the graphics processing. Micro ATX motherboards often have an integrated video board. Those integrated video boards are generally not very well suited for playing games, but good enough for watching movies.\
- Hard disk, this is the permanent memory of your computer where your data is stored.\
- An optional DVD/CD player/recorder for reading/writing D

IntelliStation A Pro delivers exceptional performance
The IntelliStation A pro delivers exceptional performance and reliability with the latest technology additions, including the AMD Opteron 256 (3.0GHz single core) processor and two new graphics cards solutions from NVIDIA - the Quadro FX 4500 X2 and Quadro FX 1500. The extreme Quadro FX 4500 X2 solution is architected with two NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 graphics processing units (GPUs) and advanced graphics in a single slot solution. The Quadro FX 1500 mid-range graphics solution offers an exceptional price/performance for Professional 3D applications.

Both mid-range and extreme graphics solutions combine with A Pro’s quality, precision, and performance engineering to help streamline the production process and enable a faster time to market. The A Pro is certified by third parties for industry-leading CAD, geo-seismic, and visualization applications.

The Competitive Advantage
Competitive advantage is born of innovation—fresh thinking that takes the status quo by surprise. As the first worldwide vendor to introduce the revolutionary AMD Opteron™ processor for standards-based workstations, IBM leads the industry in 32-/64-bit computing with the IntelliStation® A Pro 6217. Building on breakthrough AMD64 architecture, the second-generation A Pro—with available dual-core processor technology—helps ready technical users for today's multitasking workflow and the trend to multithreaded applications.

The standards-based alternative
Bristling with up to 16GB of PC3200 ECC memory, the scalable 6-slot x 6-bay IntelliStation A Pro is the premier platform for compute-intensive, graphics-rich applications. The A Pro is certified2 by leading 3D software vendors for the most demanding users, from engineers to molecular chemists, animators to geologists. Energize your projects with real-world performance gains,3 visualized by an all-new portfolio of PCI Express x16 graphics accelerators from the industry leader—NVIDIA®. IBM has forged a compelling price/performance alternative to proprietary 64-bit UNIX® workstations, with a straight-forward transition from your current 32-bit workflow to next-generation applications running Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® WS or Microsoft® Windows®.

More Productive to the Core
The IntelliStation A Pro with AMD Direct Connect Architecture is designed to simply bypass the primary bottleneck of other workstation designs—the front-side bus—opening the processors to a flood of data serviced by up to 16GB of memory (8GB per processor).

The Model 275, 280, and 285 Opteron processors—part of the AMD multi-core family—offer multiple advantages, including:

- Significant performance gains with up to four cores in a dual-processor configuration
- More efficient multitasking than single-core systems
- Power savings with improved thermal characteristics
- Compatibility with current operating systems from leading vendors

The IntelliStation A Pro 6217 with dual-core Opteron processors is a highly scalable solution devised to anticipate your future computing needs, helping to deliver real investment protection.

This is an auto-generated long summary of IBM IntelliStation A Pro 2.8GHz Workstation based on the first three specs of the first five spec groups.
Processor frequency *
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

Ports & interfaces
USB 2.0 ports quantity *
Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity *
Number of VGA (D-Sub) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The VGA (D-Sub) connector is a 15 pin connector between a computer and a monitor. It was first introduced in 1987 by IBM.
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports *
Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.

PS/2 ports quantity
The number of PS/2 connectors for keyboards and mice. Its name comes from the IBM Personal System/2.
Ports & interfaces
Firewire (IEEE 1394) ports
Number of IEEE 1394/FireWire ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer. It was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple, who called it FireWire. The 1394 interface is comparable to USB though USB has more market share. Apple first included FireWire in some of its 1999 models, and most Apple computers since the year 2000 have included FireWire ports, though, as of 2013, only the 800 version (IEEE-1394b).
Serial ports quantity
The number of serial ports in a computer or peripheral. A serial port is a serial communication physical interface through which information transfers in or out one bit at a time. The term "serial port" usually identifies hardware more or less compliant to the RS-232 standard, intended to interface with a modem or with a similar communication device. In modern computers and peripherals, serial ports have largely been replaced by USBs and other interfaces.
Parallel ports quantity
The number of parallel ports. Parallel ports, also known as printer ports, are a type of interface found on computers (personal and otherwise) for connecting peripherals. In computing, a parallel port is a parallel communication physical interface. Parallel ports were common in the 1980s and '90s (mostly conforming to industry standard IEEE 1284) but are now being replaced by USBs and other ports.
