The DN10000 accepted one to four Apollo PRISM CPUs. They were not Motorola
88000-series CPUs.

The PRISM CPU ran at 18.18 MHz, and was Apollo's own design. I believe
that after HP bought Apollo in 1989, features of the PRISM were either
merged into the PA-RISC architecture, or taken to develop the PA-RISC.
Don't quote me on that though.
