Sun is now offering a new entry-level Sun BladeTM 1000 Workstation with the SunPCiTM IIpro Co-processor Card installed. The configuration includes two 750-MHz CPUs, 1 GB RAM, SunTM Expert3D-lite graphics card, 36-GB disk and the SunPCi IIpro card. The SunPCi IIpro Card includes a 733 MHz Celeron Processor, 128 MB memory, 24bit graphics, USB port, Serial and Parallel port.

The Sun Blade 1000 Workstation with the SunPCi IIpro co-processor card combination can increase productivity by running the SolarisTM Operating Environment (Solaris OE) and PC applications in one box while sharing files, data, and system resources between the two environments. The Sun Blade 1000 Workstation can support up to four SunPCi IIpro cards. Sun Blade 1000 Workstation customers can choose to purchase this configuration with the SunPCi IIpro Co-processor card factory installed.

Applications that run under WinNT/Server, Win2k Server, WinME, Windows 98SE, WindowsNT Workstation 4.0 and Windows 2000 Professional Edition are compatible with the SunPCi IIpro coprocessor card. Sun includes the latest version of Microsoft Office in its test matrix.

The SunPCi IIpro coprocessor card now physically fits into a single PCI slot inside the workstation. When the second PCI backplate is not installed, all half-length PCI cards and most full-length Sun NICs, graphics and host bus adapter PCI cards will fit adjacent to the SunPCi IIpro coprocessor card.

Two full size 32-bit or 64-bit PCI slots are required for full installation. If installed, the serial/parallel port second PCI backplate (included with the SunPCi II) will obstruct access to the adjacent PCI slot.

The SunPCi IIpro coprocessor card ships with one 128-MB SODIMM and one available SODIMM slot. The SunPCi IIpro coprocessor card supports up to 1-GB of RAM by utilizing available upgrades.
