TIS Ltd is introducing the low-end RISC systems from MIPS Computer Systems launched back in February onto the UK market, and is showing the systems at the European Unix Show this week. The 12 MIPS M/12 server, which will be available from July, is aimed at file server applications at the department level, or as the main system for smaller companies, and according to TIS, will sell for under UKP20,000, bringing down the cost per MIPS to below UKP2,000. TIS, which was appointed an Apple value-added reseller last year, is expected to use the machine as a file server for networks of Apple workstations. Also introduced at the show will be the MIPS RS10 family of low-end X-Window display workstations, which have up to 4.5Mb memory, support Ethernet and TCP/IP, and sell in the US for $3,200 – there are no UK prices as yet.
