COMPUTER CONSOLES REMODELS, CUTS PRICES ON LOW UNIX LINE

By CBR Staff Writer

STC Plc’s Computer Consoles Inc has launched re-engineered models of its Power6 Series of Unix hardware. The new L Series replaces the older S series as the entry-level line, and are priced 20% to 30% below existing models, which will not be discontinued, but brought into the range. The line comprises the 3 MIPS LB and LE, 5 MIPS L, and 8 MIPS LX systems, and support 32 to 192 users. Although very similar to the S Series, the prorietary CPU technology has been shrunk down to less boards, freeing two slots. SCSI peripherals have been added, along with 380Mb or 760Mb disk drives, giving total storage of up to 6Gb with an expansion cabinet. There is also an expanded 150Mb cartridge tape drive, and up to 64Mb main memory: prices start at $50,000, with availability in April.
