Fremont, California-headquartered Sparc-based workstation developer Aries Research Inc has started shipping its first deskside SparcStation 10 clone, the Marixx DS, which it claims costs 20% less than a comparable SparcServer 10 from Sun Microsystems Inc. The Marixx DS incorporates two Texas Instruments Inc Viking 50MHz SuperSparc processor modules with 1Mb of external cache, but can support up to four 40MHz or 50MHz Vikings in a 64-bit Mbus architecture. The machine generally runs Sun’s Solaris 1.x or 2.x operating systems, but should Solaris 2.3 be desired, it will also support Fujitsu Ltd’s Ross Technology Inc HyperSparc processors. A base system includes 64Mb of RAM, 1.05Gb internal hard drive, two Mbus, four Sbus expansion slots, and costs $26,200.
