It's a very early 68030 Cube, with standard hardware. The label is a joke on the Cube's capacities as it included circuitry on just two VLSI chips which used to take a whole mainframe to have this capability.

So are they a cube? Were they released before or after the NeXT Computer?

Just preproduction models of the NeXT Cube Computer, so pretty damn rare. The only diffrerence is the lettering on the back!
