DEC’s Pegasus add-in vector processor board for the VAX family is expected to come out this autumn, Digital Review reports. It is likely to be offered as an option on the VAX 6400, now pencilled in for July 11 launch, and a version may also be offered for the VAX 6300, while a more integrated version will be offered for the forthcoming mach ines using the Aridus processor, which are being dubbed the VAX 9000 series. The vector processor is expected to deliver about 100GFLOPS and as with IBM’s 3090 Vector Faci lity, it will be possible to put in one per CPU in a multiprocessor.
