PRIME COMPUTER TURNS 80386 BOX INTO FAMILY

By CBR Staff Writer

Prime Computer Inc has introduced two further models of its EXL 316 80386-based multi-user Unix machine, creating an EXL family. The new 320 and 325 models come in above the 316, offering 25% and 56% more performance respectively – and the last two digits indicate the clock speed – the new models use 20MHz and 25MHz versions of the 80386. They can support 48 users in typical applications, and up to 114 less active users, and as well as running Unix and MS-DOS concurrently, are also offered with Pick. Prime sees a typical 320 having 4Mb memory, 90Mb disk and 60Mb tape, and a 325 coming with 8Mb CPU, 258Mb disk and the tape. Ships start in June and no prices were given. Prime also announced an SNA interconnect package for access to host 3270 applications, an external X25 packet assembler-disassembler supplied by Micom Systems Inc, a 16-line synchronous controller and two-line synchronous controller for use in SNA networks.
