Wyse Technology Inc, San Jose has now introduced its new line of MIPS Technologies Inc R3000-based X terminals as the WX series. There are five models, three colour and two monochrome, each offering 100,000 Xstones performance, 1,280 by 1,024 resolution and up to 64Mb memory. Prices go from $2,100 for a 17 monochrome model and $2,400 for the 19 monochrome display, to $2,400, $3,500 and $4,000 respectively for 15, 17 and 19 colour variants. Wyse’s 19 colour model is cheaper than similar products from rivals such as Digital Equipment Corp, Hewlett-Packard Co, Tektronix Inc, Japan Computer Corp and Network Computing Devices Inc – if less powerful in most instances – but more expensive than comparable Human Designed Systems Inc and Samsung Electronics Co’s Phase X Systems units. Wyse will continue to upgrade its Intel Corp 80486 line of multiprocessing servers to Pentium and add new configurations along the way. An eight-way fault-tolerant system is under development alongside those already expected. These include the uniprocessor, sub-$10,000 Jedi and the $20,000 one-to-four CPU Saratoga; plus PT24-upgradable 80486SX-based Roadrunner, Pentium-upgradable 80486SX-based Saturn and Pentium-based Baby Jedi client. Due in the next few weeks, they will be bundled with its version of Unix System V.4, Santa Cruz Unix or Windows NT, with NetWare, UnixWare and Solaris options. No UK pricing.
