Summary
  • Digital Equipment Corp introduces two Winchester drives as options for the 32-bit MicroVAX 3000 minicomputers and the VAXstation 3000 workstations and a streaming cartridge tape drive as an option for MicroVAX II-based and MicroPDP-11-82 small computers. The $9,000 280MByte RA70 Winchester is the first 5.25-inch model manufactured by DEC. The drive features: thin-film media yielding an areal density of 30.4 million bits-per-square-inch; a thin-film servo head with the remaining heads being ferrite; and compatibility with DEC's Digital Storage architecture. DEC's 5.25-inch disk supplier, Micropolis Corp, is expected to be hard hit. The 622MByte RA82 Winchester is a 14-inch drive previously used in DEC's 2.5GByte SA482 Winchester; a three-version model costs $65,500. The drive features eight data surfaces, two read-write heads, and ferrite head-oxide media technology. Volume shipments of both are expected in early 1988. The $7,300 TK70 half-inch cartridge drive features a 90KByte-per-second formatted transfer rate; options for the MicroVAX and VAXstation 3000 will be available in 1988.
