French Pick-popper and technical supermicrocomputer manufacturer IN2, Intertechnique Informatique, has introduced low-end and mid-range models in its IN8000 line of 32-bit Pick systems. The IN8200 comes with up to three interactive processors and one or two additional support processors for numerically intensive applications or for fault tolernance. As single processor IN8200 supports up to 32 users, with two it takes 64 and with three the maximum 128. The machine comes with 4Mb to 16Mb main memory, 16 to 128 async and one to 12 synchronous lines, one or two 150Mb disk drives, and half-inch back-up tape drive – all in a single cabinet. The system can be expanded with one or two 150Mb mirror disks, a 50Mb audit trail disk and quarter inch streamer. The IN8100 uses the same 32-bit processors in a smaller enclosure, using up to four and supporting a maximum 64 users. Main memory goes to 8Mb, it takes 16 to 64 async and one to four synchronous lines and the same peripheral complement as the 8200.The company, still looking for an entree to the UK market, did not give any prices or delivery dates.
