Alpha RISC acolyte DeskStation Technology Inc, Lenexa, Kansas, has introduced board- and system-level OEM technologies for use with DEC’s 21164 EV56 RISC at speeds up to 600MHz. DeskStation’s RPX164-2 motherboard implements a version of DEC’s 21174 Pyxis logic chip set and can be purchased with or without the CPU itself and in either workstation or server chassis where required. A workstation configuration will cost from $6,000 and runs Windows NT or Linux. It includes six PCI slots, UItra-Wide SCSI, Ethernet, FROM 64MB to 768Mb RAM and 2Mb cache. A cut-down version of the same board – without SCSI and Ethernet – will be announced next week as the RPL164-2. DeskStation’s got more announcements planned for a couple of months time when we’re likely to hear about its plan to do multiprocessor versions of the low-cost 21164PC version of Alpha. There’s at least another half dozen boards in the plan beyond these, including one for DEC’s next-generation EV6 21264 CPU.
