Tech Lady Tuesday

Ah, now THIS lady knows what she wants. I’m digging her gold necklace and the fact that she’s got her hand in her pocket. Classy. I love some good pockets for putting my hand in. Seriously, I’m not joking. I wish every single pair of pants, every skirt, every nightgown I owned had pockets. Anyway, I digress.

This image was tweeted to me by the good folks at The Retro-Computing Society of RI – preserving and restoring historic computers.

The NVAX incorporated the pipelined performance of the VAX 9000 and was the fastest CISC chip of its time. The VAX 6610 system (shown here) delivered 83 transactions per second, boasting better performance than RISC based systems from IBM or HP.
