Overview

These HP Visualize J-Class computers were small RISC workstations were aimed at the Unix graphics 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 with 2U space.
