PA-RISC information - since 1999

PA-RISC Computers

HP produced a large range of PA-RISC computers in the popular HP 9000 series of Unix systems between the 1980s and 2000s.

Different types of PA-RISC servers, workstations and mainframes were available from HP in the HP 9000 700 and 800 series, later extended to HP Visualize workstations, lettered and finally Integrity servers, where the PA-RISC and the HP/Intel Itanium platforms slowly converged.

Third parties produced PA-RISC computers in the 90s as well; there were also a few niche PA-RISC products like VME boards and analyzers and portable computers, that were often used for scientific, industrial and also military uses. PA-RISC computers were sold over a long timeline and often benchmarked against SPEC.

HP 9000 700 Workstations

PA-RISC workstations were sold in many different formats in the 1990s, from rather small 712, 715 and B-Class desktops to the heavy and powerful 735, 755 and C-Class workstations.

HP Itanium Computers

HP produced three Itanium workstations before dropping Unix workstations, making these the last and probably fastest HP-UX workstations (that also run Windows).
