Bull SA and Honeywell Bull Inc have added new low-end 32-bit models to the DPS 6 Plus minicomputer line – announced worldwide according to Bull, and the French company has also announced the Series 400 models, al-ready available in the US. The truly new models are the DPS 6 Plus 210 and 220, both using the same prop rietary CMOS CPU as the 400, 410 and 420. But they eliminate the 13.3Mbyte-per-second asynchronous Mega-bus of the larger models, replacing it with a 10Mbyte-per-second synchronous bus. The 210 is designed for four to 10 users and can be upgraded to the 220, supp-orting up to 20 users. The 210, with 2Mb memory, ex pandable to 16Mb, six asynchronous communications ports, peripheral controller, 37Mb disk, tape streamer and HVS 6 Plus operating system, rated at 0.7 MIPS, is $17,130. A 1 MIPS 220 with 8Kb cache, additional disk controller, 4Mb memory and disk and tape is $27,130. In France, Bull added the 401 uniprocessor, 423 tri-processor and 424 quad; the 402, 413 and 414 are touted as servers.
