Digital launches 600Mhz chip

Library Systems Newsletter [August 1997]

Digital Equipment Corporation has begun to ship its 600 MHz Alpha chip. The breakthrough will not only cause its com-petitors to speed up the introduction of faster chips (most now are 200 to 300 MHz, although Intel's P6 is rated at up to 451MHz), but will bring down prices of the slower chips. Either way, price/performance of CPUs will once again improve over the next few months.
