Verso: Press release reads: "VAX 6000 Model 600" "BOSTON, MA -- October 30, 1991 -- New VAX 6000 Model 600 systems deliver the bst performance and price/performance of all systems in their class -- even better than RISC systems from IBM or Hewlett-Packard. These powerful systems -- two to three times faster than previous systems at lower system prices -- provide no-compromise datacenter solutions for customers' most critical data and applications. With their unique 6-way symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) capablilities and board-swap upgrades, VAX 6000 systems offer unprecedented growth potential. And by grouping VAX 6000 systems together in VAXcluster systems, users can achieve even higher performance levels -- the levels required for today's demanding datacenter applications."
