IBM PROMISES MUCH MORE POWERFUL RTs NEXT YEAR

By CBR Staff Writer

The RT Unix workstation is now right at the top of IBM’s list of products that must at all costs be rescued from the US market’s perception of them as dogs. The company reveals that its $3,550m Federal Aviation Administration contract was won in large part on the strength of an unannounced version of the RISC CPU that delivers twice the integer and many times the floating point performance of the present RT – to go into 12,000 to 15,000 display stations. The new RT is set for next year, and IBM says the RT had its best month ever in June, 50% are going into commercial applications, and the support team will grow tenfold next year.
