Sun Microsystems Inc duly unveiled its panoply of new graphics products yesterday, adding a low-cost 3 MIPS Sun-3/60 series, a line of accelerated graphics systems and a high-performance applications and graphicsaccelerator. The Sun-3/60 benchmarks at about three times the DEC VAX-11/780 on the Dhrystone measure, and starts at under $10,000. The base Sun-3/60 mono station includes 19 monitor, 4Mb memory, expandable to 24Mb, keyboard, optical mouse and Unix for $7,900. With 71Mb disk and 60Mb cartridge tape, it is $12,900. The entry-level colour version with 16 8-bit colour monitor, 4Mb memory, keyboard and optical mouse is $9,900. The company also unveiled a new CXP line of workstations with graphics acceleration claimed to add unparalleled two and three-dimensional graphics to the Sun line. The line consists of three models based on the Sun-3 and Sun-4: they are the Sun-4/260CXP, the 3/260CXP and the 3/160CXP, each with new graphics acceleration hardware and software. A 4Mb Sun-3/160CXP with 19 1,152 by 900 pixel colour monitor and accelerator hardware, is $32,900. The 8Mb 3/260CXP is $46,900 and the 4/260CXP with 8Mb is $57,900 and with 32Mb, 560Mb disk and quarter inch cartridge is $95,500 – and CXP upgrades are available for all exist ing models so that going from a 3/160C to a 3/160CXP is $5,900; upgrading the 3/260C and 4/260C costs $10,900 in either case. Sun also added the TAAC-1 application and graphics accelerator systems, designed to enable Sun workstations to be used in imaging, high-end visualisation and simu-lation. The TAAC-1 was developed by Sun’s High End Graphics/Accelerator Projects team, formerly Trancept Systems Inc, Raleigh, North Carolina, acquired by Sun in May. The TAAC-1 is a programmable processor combin ing array, graphics and image pro cessing features in a single unit, and costs $25,000 with software as an option for Sun-3s and 4s. An 8Mb Sun-3/260C with 19 colour monitor, 280Mb disk, tape and TAAC-1 is $75,500. All the new products are available on 90 days delivery.
