Sun Microsystems Ultra 10 CPU disassembly, UltraSPARC IIi

I found a pair of these babies the other day ready to be scrapped.

Looking inside this Sun unit, it seemed alot like a ordinary PC.

Disassembling the CPU module would be interesting as it was a 64 bit processor…

The flatness of the CPU was amazing and the connection to the board was not soldered or involved metal pins, rather conductive pads.

Way ahead of their time and in the bin now :)
