Well, unless I'm mistaken, when the Russian VAX-11/730 on a chip came, 
DEC had already produced the uVAX II, which is also just a chip, but 
much faster than an 11/730, so it's not exactly as if the Russians were 
outperforming what DEC was doing... Exactly when did this Russian chip 
come out, by the way? Curious on exactly how far DEC had come at the 
time of that chip. :-)
