Overview

The c8000 is the latest and probably last PA-RISC HP workstation. It is driven by one or two dual-core PA-8800 Mako processors, later offered with PA-8900 CPUs and features an impressive array of system and I/O options. The center of the system is the HP zx1 chipset, which also supports Itanium processors. The system is built in a sleek, silent tower casing and also available as a rack-mount option.
