San Jose, California-based Elxsi Corp has a new entry level machine, the System 6000, aimed at broadening the appeal of its 64-bit modular systems in the real-time computer market (CI No 1,112). Compatible with the current 6400 series minicomputers, the 6000 comes in five models, including single or dual processors ranging from 16Mb to 512Mb main memory. Prices start from $295,000 for a 12 (Whetstone) MIPS S6020-1, available from next month, to $695,000 for the 80 MIPS S6020-2. The machines run Unix System V, 4.2 BSD, or Elxsi’s own Embos and EMS, a VMS like environment. At the same time, Elxsi said that its 10 processor System 6400 CPU, rated at 250 VAX MIPS and 100 MFLOPS, would now be three months late, with first customer shipments in June.
