Everyone seems tired of the RISC/CISC debate, so let me change the
subject a bit. Several letters have alluded to your new chip. I have
not seen anything about it. Could somebody in Symbolics describe the
chip and the system that will be built about it? In particular, I'm
sure that most people would like to know the differences between it
and the 3600 family and the performance that you expect from it.
Unfortunately, we don't work at a university, and we must respect the
company's position and not discuss processors and products which are
currently under development. We are allowed to say whatever has been
officially released by the company, and no more. But you presumably
have already read the trade press which contains the official press
release, so I'm not sure what more you want from us.
