AMDAHL MAINFRAMES WILL OUTPACE IBM, BUT NOT UNTIL MARCH ’98

By CBR Staff Writer

Amdahl Corp duly unveiled the next generation of its CMOS-based IBM-compatible mainframes as the Millennium 700 Series yesterday, which at 75 MIPS and 12-ways outperform IBM’ newest G4 offerings – see separate story in this section – though they won’t be available until the end of the first quarter of next year. The systems use parent Fujitsu Ltd’s CMOS chips and are expected to reach 100 MIPS or more in 1999 and 150 MIPs in 2000. Amdahl’s Millennium 400 and 500 systems deliver up to 44 MIPS, more than enough horsepower for many users.
