IBM 360 Model 95 - 1968

From IBM Data Processing  Division press release (7/1/68)

Formal acceptance of two, new                                                System/360 Model 95s -- by                                                   NASA's Goddard Space Flight                                               Center was announced today by                                                IBM Corporation.

The two computers are the first and only ones in IBM's Model 90 series equipped with ultra-high-speed thin-film memories. Over a million characters (bytes) of information are stored in each on magnetic "spots" four millionths of an inch thick.

With an access time of 67 nanoseconds (billionths of a second), these are the fastest, large-scale memories in user operation.
