Siemens Data Systems is set to launch a new a new member of its MX Unix micro series at the UK’s Which Computer? Show next month. The new MXZ 300-30 is the first Siemens machine to use National Semiconductor’s 25MHz NS32532 processor, rated by National as significantly faster than the Motorola 68030, and capable of a sustained 8 to 10 MIPS performance. The floor-standing 300-30 follows the same design as the existing NS32332 MX-300s, with peripheral controllers offloading terminal input-output and communications overheads from the main CPU, connected via a Multibus 1 system bus. Up to 24 terminals and 16 printers can be attached to the machine, or 16 of Siemens’ 978080 intelligent graphics terminals. Standard systems include the processor, Multibus 1, 8Mb to 16Mb main memory, two 170Mb or 310Mb hard disks, floppy drive, and tape streamer, and software includes Sinix System V.2, and Siemens’ NFS compatible DFS distributed file system; no prices available.
