The VAXstation 4000/90 is a 42 VUP system and the VAX 4000/400 is a
16 VUP system, so you aren't doing too bad. I seem to recall the
VAX 4000/700A is about 40 VUPs and the /705A is about 45-50 VUPs.

I would rather go with a QBUS SCSI or HSDxx controller. Once I find
one I"ll get rid of my DSSI disks.
