Hitachi announced the 3050 series of workstations/servers in April 1991. The series included a desktop model running on the Motorola MC68040 processor with a performance of 3.5 megaFLOPS and deskside models running on Hewlett-Packard’s 50 MHz RISC processor with a performance of 57 MIPS/15 megaFLOPS.
The series relied on industry standards, such as the X Window System, and international standards, such as POSIX. And since the 3050 models were developed on the OSF/Motif style guide, they had unified operating environments. The 3050 series also supported Hitachi’s window system, which prioritized compatibility with the 2050 series, a 16 Mbps Token Ring network, and a 10BASE-T LAN network.
