Last week, Fujitsu Ltd’s Ross Technology announced 66MHz HyperSparc upgrade kits targeted at users of Sun Microsystems Inc’s Sparcstation 10 and Sparcserver 600MP machines. Ross, which has yet to persuade Sun to use its chips, said the new kits offer a 20% increase in speed over its 55MHz HyperSparc upgrades introduced in October. It is available in single-, dual- and quad-CPU configurations. Because of the new 66MHz kits, Ross has cut pricing on the older kits by 20%. The kits are Sparc Compliance Definition 1.1-compliant. Ross claims to have shipped 700 upgrade kits between November and March to over 100 companies including universities, value-added resellers and end users. Half were said to be SparcStation 10 upgrades, the rest went into SparcServer 630s, 670s and 690s. It projects 1,500 upgrades and 300 customers in the second quarter. It claims a two-four times performance increase.
