Last week NEC Corp announced five new models in its EWS 4800 series of R-series RISC-based workstations, along with other new hardware and software for multimedia and other functions. Among the announcement was the first notebook sized Unix workstation, the EWS4800/110N, an A4 size notebook which has a performance of 40 SPECint92 and 92 MIPS, along with a 1024 by 768 thin-film transistor liquid crystal diode screen. Also announced as the EWS4800/310LC, which NEC say is the lowest priced workstation in Japan, costing the equivalent of $4,485 for a diskless configuration and $5,600 for a stand-alone configuration with a disk unit. The EWS4800/320SX, with 85 SPECint92 and 94 SPECfp92 performance has standard retail price of $14,950 and is NEC’s new highest performance model. In addition, NEC announced three new Unix servers with improved price-performance ratios, priced from $41,590 through to $197,200. NEC hopes to ship 40,000 units of all size types during the next two years. Some of the other new products announced include MMBASE/LIB, a tool and library for transfer of motion picture and sound from a video casette recorder, compressing to the MPEG standard; and Spoolernet, a print distribution software package.
