WYSE ANNOUNCES SUPPORT OF EXTENDED INDUSTRY STANDARD ARCHITECTURE (EISA) WITH ENHANCED MASTER BURST

 SAN JOSE, Calif., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Wyse Technology Inc., an original member of the Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) Consortium, announced its support for the consortium's new addendum to the EISA bus specification released today. As one of the main technical contributors to the EISA with Enhanced Master Burst (EMB) specification, Wyse has exhibited its commitment to furthering the development of industry standards and enhancements for I/O bus architectures.
 Anticipating future performance demands on high-end systems, the EMB addendum signals the evolution of the EISA bus specification. It is designed to provide high-performance data throughput up to 133MB per second on the EISA expansion bus, making it especially appropriate in server environments.
 EISA with EMB will raise the performance level of system throughput, while maintaining backward compatibility with current EISA and ISA adapter cards. Extending a user's investment in current hardware, EISA with EMB-compatible expansion boards will operate at the present speed of 33MB per second to accommodate the large existing installed base of EISA-base systems.
 "Beginning with the introduction of its first scalable True Symmetric Multiprocessing (TSMP) system in 1990, Wyse has offered users linear performance scalability," said Rich Wesson, vice president of business development, Systems Division.
 "One aspect of achieving scalability is by balancing CPU power and disk I/O throughput. To continue this balance, disk arrays and RAID subsystems that require higher data bandwidths must be supported. EISA with EMB will be incorporated in future Wyse products to meet performance and throughput requirements which will be placed by the next generation of CPUs."
 The new specification was created in anticipation of greater demands placed on server system throughput by Intel's Pentium processor and new graphics-intensive databases and applications, which will be prevalent in UNIX and Microsoft's Windows NT environments. Wyse is currently shipping the i486-based, multiprocessor Series 7000i Model 760MP that will also accommodate the Pentium processor. In addition to UNIX models, the system is available in Windows NT configurations.
 EISA with EMB will also complement emerging local bus standards such as the Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) and VESA specifications that address video performance bottlenecks. The slot expansion capability of EISA with EMB accommodates the flexibility requirements of large server configurations while providing backward compatibility.
