Acorn RISC PC700 System

The Risc PC 700 was launched in July 1995, it featured the faster 40MHz ARM710 CPU, RISC OS 3.60, more memory, VRAM as standard, 16 bit sound and bigger hard discs. The ARM710 gave approximately 40% improvement over the original Risc PC 600. This machine is 2 slice Risc PC with a 4 slot backplane and a Acorn AEH62 Ethernet Adaptor.

"The Risc PC range provides elegant and effective solutions as a multiprocessor
platform, in step with the future of computing. An innovative case construction
makes adding or upgrading processors an extremely simple and quick procedure.
The Risc PC range is powered by ARM, the world's most efficient and most
cost-effective 32-bit RISC processor. Tfie ARM 600, ARM 700 and upcoming
ARM 800 series processors can be inserted into the new Risc PC range machines,
which come with a low-cost upgrade path for future ARM processors, offering
an increase in processing power of up to 300% in the future."
