With the announcement set for some time after 5pm Greenwich Mean Time next Wednesday – live by satellite from Fort Lauderdale – it’s as well for Computergram subscribers that sketchy details of Gould Computer Systems’ next generation of top end systems is already out of the bag.

The 100K ECL machine, with a minimum two CPUs – rated at 10 MIPS, 12 MIPS with arithmetic accelerator, in one cabinet and a minimum 64Mb main memory, going to 512Mb, will expand in pairs of CPUs to a maximum eight, linked by a 154 Mbyte-per-second bus. The NPL will run under proprietory real-time Unix.
