Seeking VUPs VAX Performance Info?

» close window

The Question is:

Can you tell me what the VUPs ratings are for
Vaxstation 4000 Model 60 and MicroVax 3400?

The Answer is :

  Please see the performance information available within the
  current OpenVMS Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document.
  If this is for hobbyist use and making assumptions from the fact
  you are asking this question, the OpenVMS Wizard would recommend
  selection of the VAXstation 4000 Model 60 series system -- unless
  you really want to learn about the Q-bus and other older hardware,
  and this is not something the OpenVMS Wizard would encourage for
  an inexperienced user.
  The VAXstation 4000 model 60 is faster, and provides native SCSI
  device support.  The MicroVAX 3400 is rather older than the
  VAXstation 4000 series, uses Q-bus and DSSI for I/O, is slower,
  and does not have an easy connection into SCSI peripherals.
