OK, but do you /own/ one? :-)
Also, the ESV has quite a heap of commercially available standard
CPUs, not custom CPUs. That didn't happen until the Freedom series
accelerators for Sun, HP and IBM workstations.
I have an AT&T Pixel Machine as well and it has gobs of processors in
it. I think they are also AT&T DSP32Cs IIRC.
