The NeXT RISC Workstation, or NRW, was an unreleased computer workstation designed by NeXT during the early 1990s as a successor to the m68k-based NeXTcube and NeXTstation. Initially the NRW was to be based on the Motorola 88110 microprocessor, but due to a lack of confidence in Motorola's commitment to the 88k architecture, it was later redesigned around dual PowerPC 601s.[1][2] Pre-production motherboards and enclosures were produced, but the NRW did not enter production before NeXT exited the hardware market in 1993.
