HEWLETT-PACKARD HAS PROBLEMS WITH INPUT-OUTPUT SYSTEM

Uncertainties over the state of readyness of Hewlett-Packard’s new HP3000 Model 930, voiced by the firm at its user group bash in Vienna this week (CI No 647), is echoed by Peter Haymann, computer analyst with Drexel Burnham Lambert, who told the Wall Street Journal they still haven’t solved their problems with the input-output system – I understand they’re out looking for new talent to solve it; Hewlett-Packard’s problem is that while the RISC hardware works fine, it has run into a brick wall trying to optimise the input-output subsystem supporting the Precision Archtecture CPU to handle the necessary number of active terminals without grinding to a halt.
