The Ultra 40 / Ultra 40 M2 was also Sun’s last dual processor workstation.

The Sun Ultra 40 featured Opteron 200 series single and dual core CPUs, while the Ultra 40 M2 featured AMD Opteron 2000 series dual core CPUs, and could be configured with up to 32GB RAM using 4GB DIMMs, and up to eight 3.5” 80GB, 160GB, 250 GB, 500GB, or 750GB SATA, or up to eight 3.5” 146GB or 300GB SAS disk drives.
