They do. It's a 2GHz model called the TDS794. We have one and it gives
very satisfactory performance. By the way, the Tek 580D is exactly the
same as the 784 except that it has a black and white display instead of
color and it costs a whole lot less. We have that one too, and it is
also very good. Got rid of a couple of our 1GHz LeCroys when we got
these, and now only use our two remaining LeCroys when both Tek scopes
are already occupied. Tektronix doesn't make a black and white version
of the 2GHz 794 or else we probably would have gotten it instead too.
