CARRERA ANNOUNCES “FASTEST” ALPHA BOX – FOR AUTUMN

By CBR Staff Writer

Laguna Hills, California-based Carrera Computers Inc is so keen to get itself into the public eye – it has been plugging away ever since it became the first third party to offer machines using Digital Equipment Corp’s Alpha RISCs – that it has now announced one that won’t be available until the autumn. It reckons that the Cobra AXP 275 will be the world’s fastest RISC personal computer when it arrives, but a lot can happen between now and then. The box will be based on the Alpha AXP 21064A-275MHz chip, rated at 170 SPECint and 290 SPECfp. Standard features will include a 128-bit memory bus, 128-bit processor bus, and two 32-bit PCI and three 16-bit AT expansion slots. Motherboard devices will include a PCI SCSI-2 controller, PCI Ethernet controller, two asynchronous serial ports, parallel port, keyboard, mouse and IBM-compatible floppy disk drive. Carrera doesn’t yet know how much it will be able to charge for the planned machine.
