 WEITEK ANNOUNCES SUPPORT FOR VESA VL LOCAL BUS STANDARD;
 WEITEK POWER 9000 USER INTERFACE CONTROLLER TAKES ADVANTAGE OF VL-BUS
 SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Weitek Corp. (NASDAQ: WWTK) today announced its support for the VL local bus standard adopted by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). The VL-Bus standard addresses demand for greater processing bandwidth resulting from the proliferation of graphical user interfaces (GUIs). The VL-Bus takes full advantage of high-performance processor and controller chips designed to enhance user interface performance.
 Processors that enhance GUI-related functions, including graphics rendering, have outstripped the capacity of the ISA bus currently used by peripheral chips to communicate with computers' central processors. The VL local bus standard alleviates the problem by giving peripheral chips access to the full CPU bandwidth through the high-capacity VL bus.
 The Weitek Power(TM) 9000, the world's fastest user interface controller for Windows, CAD and desktop publishing applications, is the first Weitek product to take advantage of the new VESA VL-Bus standard. Other Weitek chips that take advantage of the VL-Bus configuration will be announced later this year.
 "The VL-Bus standard at last provides Weitek with a standard PC architecture that permits our high-performance user interface processors to realize their full potential without expensive proprietary solutions," said Bob Butchko, Weitek's director of marketing. "The result for end users will be unsurpassed graphics performance."
 Weitek Corp. makes processors and controllers that enhance the performance of standard operating systems, user interfaces and application software. Weitek processors and controllers are used to build faster, more intuitive and competitive workstations and high-performance personal computers and peripherals.
 VESA, based in San Jose, Calif., is the international organization that sets and supports industry-wide video graphics standards for the benefit of end users.
