NCR AHEAD OF IBM IN GOING FOR ASIC CIRCUITRY AND SURFACE MOUNTING WITH 3390 WORKSTATION

Although we said that NCR Corp was following IBM in going for ASIC circuitry and surface mounting to cram as much as possible onto tiny boards for its new line of 80286 and 80386 micros (CI No 690), strictly speaking it was NCR that got there first, with the 3390 workstation announced last year; US prices for the new machines are $6,353 to $8,653 for the 80386-based PC916 (now how is anyone going to remember that number?); $2,950 to $5,920 for the up-market PC810 AT-alike; $1,954 to $2,154 for the low-end PC710 AT-alike; and $1,974 for the 3392 workstation.
