Sun Ultra 80 goes four-way

Sun Microsystems' Ultra 80 workstation, released last week, handles the company's fastest graphics accelerators and accommodates up to four 450-MHz UltraSparc II processors and 4G of memory.

The list price for an Ultra 80 with one processor, 256M of memory and an 18.2G hard drive is $15,635, without a monitor. Sun also last week released an 18-inch flat-panel monitor and 19- and 21-inch flat-screen monitors.

The company has revised the SunSoft Solaris 7 operating system to include Xinerama, a technology that displays a single screen image across up to 12 monitors.

The new Solaris 7 can synchronize desktop applications with handheld devices running Palm OS from Palm Computing Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif.
