 ADVANCE GEOPHYSICAL PARTNERS WITH CONVEX TO
 PROVIDE SEISMIC PROCESSING SOLUTIONS
 RICHARDSON, Texas, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Convex Computer Corporation (NYSE: CNX) announced today that Advance Geophysical Corp., Englewood, Colo., has signed a major value-added reseller (VAR) agreement with Convex to sell software licenses for its systems and to re-sell Convex turnkey systems. As part of the agreement, Convex will provide Advance with a C3420-ES supercomputer for the company to port and develop its ProMAX 2-D and 3-D seismic software system.
 ProMAX is an interactive seismic processing system with fully integrated batch processing. Fast and easy to use, ProMAX provides practical "problem solving" capabilities. Featuring an intuitive user interface, full color graphics, and multi-tasking capabilities, ProMAX includes capabilities that fulfill virtually all 2-D seismic data processing requirements, and features an excellent development environment.
 According to P. Dennis O'Brien, president of Advance, ProMAX is popular because the design and implementation of the system not only focuses on what the client needs but also gives the user numerous advantages. "ProMAX is the only system in the marketplace that has been designed from the ground floor to take advantage of today's technology. It is based on the industry standards of UNIX, X Windows, FORTRAN and C, and NFS and TCP/IP network protocols."
 O'Brien went on to say that the Convex architecture provides numerous advantages to the ProMAX software solution. "Our customers are addressing high volume seismic processing projects that require enhanced I/O and multiple processors. Convex supercomputers supply improved I/O, efficient multi-tasking, and multiple CPU configurations that will provide high throughput capabilities," he noted.
 The current ProMAX release processes only 2-D data; 3-D capabilities will be available in the release scheduled for the second quarter 1993.
 "Advance is a leading seismic software supplier and Convex is excited about its new relationship with the company," said Jerry Coble, Convex's worldwide petroleum sales manager. "As Advance proceeds with the 3-D phase of their implementation, Convex supercomputers will provide the ideal platform for development and advancement of this popular seismic processing system."
 Advance Geophysical Corporation was formed in 1980. Its primary business is the development of interactive seismic processing software and the sale of integrated systems. Advance is a privately held company with offices in Denver, Houston, London, and Singapore.
 Convex Computer Corporation, a leading supplier of air-cooled supercomputers worldwide, markets its products primarily to scientific, engineering, and technical users for a wide variety of applications in areas such as seismic processing, reservoir simulation, computational chemistry, computer-aided engineering, image processing, aerospace simulation, and molecular biology. Convex is a member of the Precision Risc Organization (PRO), an association of industry-leading companies that promote the use of HP's PA-RISC technology. Convex, which is listed on the NYSE with the symbol CNX, has sold more than 1,100 systems to nearly 600 customers in 44 countries.
