Hewlett-Packard Co is to follow rivals Apollo Computer with its own top-end 68030 workstation using a 33MHz 68030 processor. The HP 9000 Model 370, running HP-UX Unix, will be rated at 7 MIPS, and is due out later this year, said the company. It will become the new top of the 9000 line and no doubt variants will have the graphics accelerator. Plans for the new system were revealed at the recent Design Automation Conference in Aneheim, California, where Hewlett also said it would be broadening its HP DesignCenter range of design automation tools. The company also announced its LaserRetrieve package for publishing and accessing information on compact disk read-only memory, incorporating data preparation and retrieval techniques from Fulcrum Technologies of Ottawa, and said it would use the system to issue a CD LaserROM containing system support information and documentation for the HP-UX Unix operating system.
