PA-RISC Processors

PA-8900 processor


The PA-8900 is a slightly tweaked PA-8800 PA-RISC processor with a doubled L2 cache and higher clock speed, released by HP in 2005 only one year after the PA-8800 as the last PA-RISC processor in its lineup. After HP dropped its line of Itanium workstations the PA-8900-powered C8000 were one of the last HP-UX workstations.

Information on the PA-8900 is limited, as was apparent distribution in the market.
