MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC LAUNCHES THE MELCOM SYSTEM 80G

By CBR Staff Writer

Unisys may not yet offer Unix on its System 80 small mainframe line, but Mitsubishi Electric, which manufactures most of the System 80 models in Japan for Unisys to sell worldwide, has launched a top-end 32-bit version of the 16-bit machine as the Melcom System 80G – with Unix file management and the C language incorporated into the DPS10 operating system: the new model has twice the performance of its predecessor, up to 32Mb memory, up to 6.4Gb of disk, and a degree of fault-tolerance in the pipelined CPU; it will be sold OEM to Nippon Univac Information Systems, and Mitsubishi looks to sell 600 of the machines, which lease for $5,300 a month over five years, during the next three years.
