NIPPON SUN LIFTS VEIL ON ITS US PARENT’s PLANS

By CBR Staff Writer

Lifting a veil on its Mountain View parent’s product plans, Nippon Sun Microsystems says that it plans to release two new workstation models over the next year, with a 20 MIPS machine promised for July, followed by a 50 MIPS machine early in 1989, both based on the Sun SPARC Scalable Processor Architecture RISC. It also says that Sun is aiming to have a 1,000 MIPS machine out by 1995. In Japan the new 20 MIPS box will be sold for around $80,000, and the local company plans to use it as a weapon against its rivals in the Japanese market, Apollo, Sony, and Yokohama Hewlett-Packard.
