Celerity's UNIX (R) - and reducted instruction set (RISC)-based
design systems are the fastest and most powerful office_ environment
systems in their price class for engineering and scientific
The Celerity C1260, introduced in January, 1986, is a dual-processor
system with a benchmarked throughput of 6.15 million Whetstone
instructions per second (W/MIPS). It is priced at $110,000 for a
functional system configuration. The mid- range C1230, also introduced
January delivers 3.25 W/MIPS for $75,000. Both are deskside systems,
allowing engineers to complete design tasks and compute-intensive
operations without off- loading to more expensive, remote computers.

Three-year old Celerity Computing delivered its first computer system,
C1200, in November 1984. The company has installed more than 60 systems
leading corporations, research centers and universities throughout the
United States. Its supermini design systems provide advanced design and
analysis capabilities to professionals in a variety of fields, including
automotive, manufacturing, aviation and aerospace, molecular modeling,
animation, and research.
