Worldwide Computer Products News-1 March 2001-Sun breaks industry price barrier with new Unix workstation (C)1995-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD http://www.m2.com

Sun Microsystems Inc has launched what it claims to be the first ever 64-bit workstation priced under USD1,000.

The new Sun Blade 100 workstation, which is a follow-on to Sun's Ultra 5 2D graphics Unix workstation, is based on the recently unveiled 64-bit UltraSPARC IIe 500MHz processor with features including 2Gb memory, the Solaris 8 operating environment and professional-level 3D graphics capabilities.

In addition the company's SunPCi II coprocessor card enables users of the workstation to run applications on both Solaris and the Windows operating system simultaneously and at native speed, removing the need for two separate computers on a single desktop.

The Sun Blade 100 workstation is available immediately, priced from USD995.
