Ultimate Corp, East Hanover, New Jersey yesterday announced versions of the IBM 9370, the DEC MicroVAX II and Honeywell Italia’s 68020-based supermicros, all configured for the Pick operating system. Ultimate expects to start shipping 9370 models with 4Mb to 16Mb memory, up to 30Gb disk and support for 16 to over 200 users running Pick under VM for August delivery at $90,000 to $600,000. The UltiVAX II is a new MicroVAX II configuration designed and engineered by DEC to complement the Ultimate Operating System (Pick), the enhancements being in the area of relational database support. The 68020 models of the Honeywell Italia Superteam line of 68000 family supermicros join the Ultimate line-up as the 1400 series in four models – 1400, 1410, 1420 and 1430: they assemble the Pick operating system code into 68020 machine code to run on the microprocessor. The 1400 line will handle from eight to 64 users, and offer superb price/performance. No prices were given for the UltiVAX or for the Superteam 1400s.
