By CBR Staff Writer

Apollo is to market the software on all its 68020 workstations as Domain/PC Emulator. The Soft Co-Processor traps and responds to all input-output functions with emulation software and re-maps the 8086 instruction set to the host processor. Apollo UK also yesterday announced the Domain/PCI-Ring, a hardware-software package that links an MS-DOS micro to the Apollo Token Ring network; Domain/PCI-Enet, to connect an MS-DOS box to Ethernet network for sharing services with Domain workstations is planned. The new Series 4000 station uses a 25MHz 68020 and a 25MHz 68881 floating point co-processor to achieve 4 MIPS performance. It is UKP16,000 for colour, UKP10,000 for monochrome and server versions.
