In July Compaq reported:
"Business Critical Servers Group (BCSG),revenue decreased 13 percent from
the same quarter last year to $750 million as a result of the product
transition to the industry-leading GS line of Alpha servers. BCSG launched
its GS line in May and shipped more than 50 units in the quarter. Customer
demand remains high and Alpha product growth will ramp to target levels,
resulting in double-digit revenue growth for the remainder of the year."
The last stories I heard were that there were something like 500 GS series
orders pending manufacture (well over half a billion dollars worth) all
prior to the recently announced super-computer wins - which should have
shipped in June, but because of various manufacturing glitches in
California, were hoping to ship by the end of September.
