TOP COMPANIES CHOOSE WYSE PLATFORM FOR WINDOWS NT APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT

 ATLANTA, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyse Technology Inc., a leader in symmetric multiprocessing technology, today announced that six leading high technology companies have chosen and are currently using the Wyse Series 7000i multiprocessing system to develop products for the Microsoft(R) Windows NT(TM) operating system. Banyan, DCA, Microsoft, Novell, Proteon and WordPerfect, among others, have shown confidence in the Wyse Series 7000i Model 760MP for its proven ability to scale up to five CPUs and run enterprise-wide applications on 32-bit multiprocessing operating systems like Windows NT.
 "By combining the scalability of Windows NT with our true SMP technology, Wyse's multiprocessing systems give developers a robust platform for developing mission-critical, client-server applications," said Jeff McNaught, manager of strategic marketing for Wyse's Systems Division. "Plus, developers can purchase systems at substantial discounts today."
 Three Generations of Symmetric Multiprocessing Development
 Since 1990, Wyse has been offering multiprocessing systems that provide customers the high performance of a minicomputer at substantially lower costs. The Wyse Series 7000i was originally chosen by Microsoft as a development and test platform for the multiprocessing version of Windows NT. The Wyse Series 7000i architecture offers linear scalability with up to five CPUs. In addition, the Windows NT operating system takes advantage of Wyse's symmetric multiprocessing capabilities by dividing tasks into several threads of execution and balancing the task load between each CPU.
 Wyse also has worked with Microsoft to produce a Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) for the Series 7000i, ensuring that products developed on that series are fully compatible with all other machines running Windows NT. Wyse's HAL was included in the beta release of Windows NT and will also be included in the shipping product.
 "Since we began working with Wyse in February 1992, we have done rigorous testing and give the Wyse Series 7000i high marks, especially on performance and scalability," said David Thacher, group product manager for Windows NT at Microsoft. "It has now been proven that Windows NT can fully harness the power of Wyse's True Symmetric Multiprocessing architecture and deliver peak performance to users."
 Wyse will demonstrate Windows NT scalability running on the Series 7000i Model 760MP at Microsoft's booth, during the introduction of Windows NT at Windows World, May 24 through 26 in Atlanta. Windows NT developers attending the booth will be eligible for Wyse system discounts up to 59 percent. Windows NT will also be demonstrated on the Wyse platform at Microsoft domestic executive briefing centers and in Paris during the introduction.
