 MOTOROLA'S 68040 MICROPROCESSOR BRINGS HIGH SPEED TO FUSION DATA
 SYSTEMS' TOKAMAC 33 ACCELERATOR BOARD
 AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola's High Performance Microprocessor Division today announced that its 33-MHz 68040 provides the processing power for Fusion Data Systems' new TokaMac(tm) 33 accelerator board. The TokaMac 33, which received top marks in a recent MacUser review, boosts the speed of the Apple(R) Macintosh(R) so that it runs up to 25 percent faster than the Macintosh Quadra 950, Apple's high-end Macintosh system. With its workstation-level performance, the TokaMac 33 is aimed at users of the Macintosh IIci, IIsi, IIvx and Performa 600 operating advanced computational or graphic-intensive applications.
 "By harnessing the power of the 33-MHz 68040, the TokaMac 33 squeezes the maximum power out of the CPU, thus tripling the speed of the system," said Jim Reinhart, Motorola's manager of M68000 marketing and applications. "This substantial boost in system performance translates into increased user productivity."
 Motorola's 33-MHz 68040 combines increased integer performance with the functionality of the 25-MHz 68040 to deliver up to 29 million instructions per second (MIPS). The most advanced microprocessor offered by Motorola's 68000 Family, the 68040 is designed for high- throughput data intensive applications.
 "Motorola's 68040 allows the TokaMac 33 to provide substantial increases in system performance to users whose primary applications are highly graphical, such as CAD, multimedia and any heavy 'number- crunching' applications," said Andrew Donaho, president of Fusion Data Systems. "During frequent compute-intensive activities, these users often experience many wait states measured in minutes or even hours. The TokaMac 33 decreases the wait time by allowing users of 68030-based systems to experience the same level of performance as a Quadra."
 Along with the TokaMac 33, the TokaMac family of accelerator boards includes the TokaMac II FX, TokaMac CI, TokaMac SX, TokaMac LC, and the TokaMac ELC.
 Available immediately, the TokaMac 33 will be priced at $2,395, and $2,695 for the board with 125K external cache. For additional product information, please contact Fusion Data Systems at 512-338-5326.
