 CHICAGO, Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Kubota Pacific Computer Inc. has announced an aggressive new pricing schedule for its Denali(TM) graphics subsystems and Kenai(TM) graphics workstations. The new schedule, which cuts entry-level Denali prices by more than 30 percent and entry-level Kenai prices between 19 to 25 percent, is designed to make Kubota's products more accessible to the mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD) market. These price reductions make Kubota's Alpha-based graphics subsystems and midrange and high-end graphics workstations the lowest- priced in the industry. (See Attachment A below for pricing schedule highlights)
 In today's highly competitive business environment, design engineers are mandated to bring better products to market faster. MCAD provides the ideal means to that end, by shortening time-consuming development cycles and controlling costs such as labor and prototype development. Unfortunately, in the past, access to MCAD has been hampered by the high cost of state-of-the-art equipment, making it the resource of a chosen few. Kubota's new pricing schedule makes high-performance MCAD technology readily available for all members of the design team.
 "These price reductions allow Kubota Pacific to continue playing a leadership role in setting new standards for graphics subsystem and workstation price, performance and upgradeability," said Jeffrey Dunn, Kubota vice president of marketing. "Kubota is determined to be the premier supplier of graphics subsystems and workstations."
 In addition to its new pricing schedule, the company today announced that it has extended its Kenai product line with new midrange and high- end graphics workstations. Based upon Digital Equipment Corp.'s Alpha microprocessor and workstation technology, Kenai 3600 midrange graphics desktop workstation offers the industry's leading price/performance for desktop workstations; Kenai 3800 high-end graphics workstation is the fastest workstation in its price range today.
