ICL TO HAVE FOUR-CPU DRS 6000 BY CHRISTMAS

ICL Plc, a second-tier customer for the Viking Super-Sparc, is possibly in the most fortunate position of the Sparc builders, because it is not tied to the Solaris version of Unix and has a symmetric multiprocessing version of Unix System V.4 available for its Sparc-based DRS6000 systems on thhe market for some months now. Indeed, ICL promises a four-processor DRS 6000 MOdel 764 with two dual-33MHz SuperSparc modules by Christmas. It is taking orders for the uniprocessor or 33MHz system now, and says it will move up to the 40MHz CPU once we are comfortable with it – we get the performance needed for now with four 33MHz CPUs.
