These HP Visualize J-Class workstations were aimed at the graphics workstations market, equipped with up to two 64-bit PA-8500 processors with large on-chip L1 caches. They are basically the bigger brothers of the C3000/C3600 et al, featuring better expandability.

The architecture was a major change from those of its J-Class 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.

An upgrade path to HP Itanium (IPF) was envisaged for Visualize workstations but not offered in the end. These were some of the last PA-RISC workstations offered by HP.
