The new chipset is based on the 64-bit specification for the PCI bus standard and provides up to 400 megabits/sec throughput according to the company. The chipset supports up to four Pentium II processors and 1G of SDRAM memory.

The Powerdigm XSU high-end workstation will be added to Micron's General Services Administration schedule and may soon be added to the Air Force Workstations contract held by Hughes Data Systems on which Micron is a subcontractor.
