Nixdorf Computer AG announced its upgraded Targon Unix systems from Paderborn, West Germany back in July, but their introduction in the US has led to talk of future plans for the Targon/35 minicomputer line, which originate from a long-term OEM deal with Pyramid Technology Corp, Mountain View, California (CI No 1,257). The company’s recently launched top-end Targon 35 Models 60 and 70 were the first models to adopt the next generation Pyramid RISC processor used in Pyramid’s own MIServer line, and double performance to between 12 and 15 MIPS per CPU. Nixdorf will extend the line above the current four processor Model 70 to include an eight processor model rated at up to 120 MIPS. Nixdorf extended its OEM agreement with Pyramid back in April, and, as is its wont, secured manufacturing rights for the line. Pyramid’s version of the machine comes in configurations of up to 12 processors.
