Kubota Pacific Inc, Santa Clara, California, will next month introduce a new workstation and a family of graphics subsystems based upon Digital Equipment Corp’s 64-bit Alpha AXP RISC. The three-dimensional graphics and imaging workstation provisionally known as Titan 2.0 (the name is to change by the March 30 launch date) – will be configured with Alpha AXPs. Kubota claims the machine will outperform Silicon Graphics Inc’s hottest new box, the MIPS Technologies Inc R4400-based Indigo2 Extreme, announced a couple of weeks ago. There will be at least six new Alpha-based three-dimensional graphic subsystems housed in pizza box casing, which will plug into TurboChannel slots on Alpha AXP workstations running Open Software Foundation’s OSF/1 or Microsoft Corp Windows NT operating systems. There will be no support for DEC’s OpenVMS. Kubota has stopped production of the MIPS R3000-based Titan 1.0 machines it inherited from its now defunct Stardent Inc sibling. The Titan architecture came originally from graphics specialist Ardent Computer Inc which merged with arch-rival Stellar Computer Inc to form Stardent back in the autumn of 1990. Kubota will honour existing support and maintenance contracts for the 1,200 Titan 1.0 users worlwide.
