The '''Altix 3000''' was the first generation of Altix systems. At the middle- and high-end it largely took the existing [[Origin 3000]] packaging and interconnect, and substituted Intel [[Itanium]] processors for the traditional [[MIPS]] CPUs. As a result many components can be swapped between the two families, such as routers, NUMAlink cables, etc.

It was succeeded by the Altix 4000 in 2004, and the last model was discontinued on 31 December 2006.

The [[Altix 330]] is an entry-level server, with a target of under US$7,000 for a basic single module system. Like higher-end models, the Altix 330 can be built up to its maximum configuration by connecting multiple modules through the [[NUMAlink]] interconnect. A [[single system image]] may contain 1 to 16 Itanium 2 processors and 2 to 128 GB of memory.
