General Micro unveils dual-Pentium VME board

Engineers at General Micro Systems in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., designed a VME single-board computer with two 550-MHz Pentium II microprocessors in a symmetric multiprocessing configuration. Named Hydra V2P3, the board has as much as 768 megabytes of dynamic random access memory, one megabyte of L2 cache, four megabytes of video RAM, and 340 megabytes of SanDisk flash memory. Hydra can perform symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing, which enables the board`s two Pentium processors to work toge

Engineers at General Micro Systems in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., designed a VME single-board computer with two 550-MHz Pentium II microprocessors in a symmetric multiprocessing configuration. Named Hydra V2P3, the board has as much as 768 megabytes of dynamic random access memory, one megabyte of L2 cache, four megabytes of video RAM, and 340 megabytes of SanDisk flash memory. Hydra can perform symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing, which enables the board`s two Pentium processors to work together in parallel on the same program. Symmetric multiprocessing uses miltiprocessing facilities built into Windows NT, Solaris, and Linux, and performs single-instruction, multiple-data processing.
