OncoResponse interrogates the human immune system using I-STAR
technology to discover therapeutic antibodies against novel immuno-oncology targets.
This Ebola project expands upon the multitude of ongoing partnerships we have with our I-STAR
technology demonstrating its broad applicability across diverse areas, including oncology, HIV and other infectious diseases.
While the S80 uses the new 450 MHz Pulsar processor (which is basically a Northstar processor re-implemented in IBM's CMOS-7S copper chip fabrication process) and a whole new memory subsystem and high-bandwidth I/O subsystem to match it, the AS/400 I-Stars were going to use a faster 560 MHz processor in the same S80 frame.
If not, IBM knows it has I-Stars available in early 2000.
Right now, it looks like the Pulsars will run at between 450MHz and 525MHz, mainly because IBM won't hit higher speeds until it announces the I-Stars next year, which will run at 560MHz thanks to the extra clock speeds that are enabled through the use of IBM's other advanced chip technology, silicon-on insulator.
