Altos Computer Systems Inc has extended its range of multi-user micros upwards with the UK launch of the dual 80386 processor 386 Series 2000 M20DP for up to 128 users. The processors operate at 20MHz, and each has its own 80387 floating point unit and 32Kb of cache. The system, which comes with a total of 16Mb, allocates applications between the two processors, and the system costs UKP50,000. The company has also decided to phase out the 16MHz model of the Series 2000, replacing it with a 20MHz model which offers an extra 25% of CPU performance and supports more users. Top of the range single processor model is now the 2000/8-380-MD, which supports up to 64 users over MultiDrop lines, and costs UKP40,000. And Altos has also expanded its Series 1000 range with a 25MHz 80386-based 386 Series 1000, supporting up to 24 users. The UK division has now released Altos’ adLANtes local area network, which supports the whole range of Altos systems and costs around UKP2,500: it combines wide area and local area networking, terminal connections and multiple links between Altos host systems and MS-DOS micros.
