Lijkt misschien een traag systeem, maar dankzij de uitstekende software (Windows vrij!), serveert het probleemloos meer dan 50 (statische) pagina's per seconde of 8mbit/s.

The following comes from the SUN hardware FAQ:

   SPARCsystem 6xxMP/xx
        Processor(s):   ROSS CY7C601 @ 40MHz or SuperSPARC @ 45 or
                        50MHz, CY7C602 FPU or on TI chip, CY7C605 MMU or
                        on TI chip (Reference); 4096 or 65536 hardware
                        contexts; ROSS: 114 MIPS. Up to four CPUs.
        Chassis type:   rackmount
        Bus:            VME, SBus, and Mbus
        Memory:         ROSS: Off-chip 64K write-back, direct-mapped,
                        virtually indexed, virtually and physically
                        tagged, 32-byte lines

        Notes:          First Mbus-based machine. Cypress/ROSS Mbus

                        (/xx models). Code name "Galaxy". ROSS cache can
                        be run write-through but OS puts it in
