Members Of The IBM Mainframe Family - IBM Mainframe

To give you some perspective on the processing power of IBM processors. The following table lists several characteristics of the current processors. For each processor, I have listed the amount of main memory, the number of channels, and the number of CPUs that can be configured in the processor. Most of these values are ranges of numbers because the processors come in a variety of models that offer various features.

IBM Processors

The table lists only the processors that are current. Naturally, IBM continues to develop new processors. As a result, by the time you read this, IBM may have bigger and better processors that leave the ones listed in the table obsolete. By the same token, most installations do not install new processors immediately after they are announced. So there are plenty of installations around that use older processors that are not shown in the table.
