Unisys has become the first in the industry to start shipping its 12-way server. The Aquanta XR/6 runs 12 200MHz Pentium Pro processors, due to be supplanted by the Pentium II chips this year. The system is intended to provide a very high performance Intel-based offering, using proprietary 64-bit bus technology - a type Intel will not have for at least six months - to reduce data access time, as well as very large amounts of memory caching. The server can run both Unix and Windows NT, but the latter will only be able to make limited use of the high number of processors due to scalability limitations. US prices begin at around $60,000 (#36,144).
