Sources close to IBM said that the company will unveil an Intel-based PC workstation, probably at Cebit. The machine is likely to be the first fruits of cooperation between IBM's RS/6000 and the IBM PC groups, as revealed last November.
Although IBM officials refused to comment on the configuration, the sources said that the workstation was likely to come with twin 200MHz Pentium Pro chips, support up to one gigabyte of fast memory and be optimally configured for Windows NT. However, it will have the look and feel of an RS workstation and will be jointly marketed.
IBM is a member of the Wolfpack clustering consortium and this and other machines from the joint RS-IBM PC group are likely to support the Microsoft software, when it emerges. But they could find themselves in a struggle with the IBM AIX group, which said today that it will concentrate on its Phoenix clustering solution, hence opening up the Intel-PowerPC rifts within the company.
IBM declined to comment on unannounced products.
