Overview

These small workstations were aimed at the graphics workstations market, equipped with the new 64-bit PA-8600 and PA-8700, both featuring large on-chip L1 caches. The architecture was a major change from those of its predecessors. New I/O devices were integrated, the LASI I/O chip was removed together with the old GSC bus. All devices now attach to PCI buses, I/O devices are connected to USB ports. The case can be used on the desktop or fitted in a 19″ rack (2U).

Model numbers: all have the HP 9000/785 model number.
