HP VISUALIZE Workstations Desktop Models B132L and B160L

Product brief
HP VISUALIZE B-Class workstations deliver a completely new mid-range 
family of powerful, economical workstations. Based on HP's PA-7300LC 
processor, these systems boast an expandable system chassis with impressive 
performance capabilities. The B-Class Model B132L weighs in with 5.9 
SPECint95 and 6.2 SPECfp95. The Model B160L, with built-in second-level 
cache (SLC), reaches 7.8 SPECint95 and 7.6 SPECfp95. Both models
include onboard HP VISUALIZE-EG and support for HP VISUALIZE-8, -24. Binary 
compatibility with your existing software applications provides for quick 
and easy implementation in your computing environment. The new B-Class 
systems are an ideal choice for organizations requiring new levels of 
price/performance for electronic, mechanical, and software design

Features and Benefits
The new PA-7300LC based B-Class is
designed for top performance today
and future enhancements to protect
our customers' investment. Features
* PA-7300LC processor - a high-performance,
  low-cost microprocessor
  that supports bi-endian switching
  for current and future operating
  systems and built-in MPEG video
  decompression for high-speed video
  play without additional expensive
* A large on-chip associative cache
  (64 KB/64 KB data/instruction cache)
  for exceptional application performance.
*1 MB ECC secondary direct-mapped
  cache for further application performance 
  enhancement (standard on
  B160L, optional on B132L).
* Support for HP VISUALIZE graphics
  technology from HP VISUALIZE-EG
  (which comes standard) to
  HP VISUALIZE-24 Graphics.
* Support for HP VISUALIZE-IVX graphics
  on the B132L.
* Memory Capacity - six memory slots
  support up to 768 MB of memory.
* High-speed bus - fast CPU-to-memory
  bandwidth to provide exceptional performance 
  on technical applications.
* Expanded I/O - B-Class supports 3.3 V
  PCI slots for high-performance networking 
  and other input/output cards.
The B-Class workstation modular
design provides for simple installation, 
flexibility of use, and fast, easy
servicing. This is accomplished
through such design features as:
* Built-in expandability
* Plug-in memory modules
* Board-to-board connections that
  reduce the need for internal cables.
