Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The IBM RT was a computer workstation sold by IBM and based around IBM's ROMP processor, a spin-off of the IBM 801 pioneered at IBM Research. The system was introduced in 1986 as the RT PC and ran AIX 1.x and 2.x, the Academic Operating System, or the Pick operating system. It was commonly, but incorrectly, known as the PC RT, and IBM later simplified the name. It didn't enjoy much success, and all models were discontinued by May 1991. However, the system spurred further development, as it was followed by IBM's RS/6000 and the corresponding POWER processor line, which was the basis for the PowerPC. Three models were produced, the 6150, 6151, and 6152. The basic types of machines were the tower model, and the desktop model. All these models featured a special board slot for the processor card, as well as machine specific RAM cards. Each machine had one processor slot, one co-processor slot, and two RAM slots. There were three versions of the 6150/6151 processor card: the standard 032 processor card had a 5.9 MHz clock rate, 1 MB standard memory and optional floating point accelerator.
