ICL Plc yesterday set the market price for desktop machines built around Intel Corp’s forthcoming Pentium Pro at ú3,200 – about $5,000. The Fujitsu ICL ErgoPro 660/150 is pitched for heavy workstation applications. ICL claims the 150MHz Pentium Pro delivers about 45% better performance than a similar 133MHz Pentium machine. It’s available with six-speed SCSI CD-ROM, ICL’s ErgoGrafix 664 board with 4Mb Video RAM, 32Mb RAM, a fast 2Gb SCSI Hard disk and a SoundBlaster AWE-32ve board. The ErgoPro is also bundled with Windows NT 3.5.1. ICL expects the first machines to be used for multimedia development, software development desktop publishing, computer-aided design and scientific work, but expects the Pentium Pro to accelerate the use of personal computer-based videoconferencing and voice recognition. For Windows NT users that simply want the extra power of the Pentium Pro, an entry ErgoPro 660/150 with quad-speed CD-ROM, 16Mb RAM, 1Gb IDE disk and SoundBlaster board will cost ú3,200.
