WYSE HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO PERFORMANCE AND SCALABILITY IN NEW EISA-BASED PERSONAL COMPUTER

 WYSE HIGHLIGHTS VIDEO PERFORMANCE AND SCALABILITY
 IN NEW EISA-BASED PERSONAL COMPUTER
 SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Building on its July systems announcement featuring three aggressively-priced, scalable personal computers with high performance graphics, Wyse Technology Inc. today introduced the Decision 486se-33DX desktop PC incorporating these attributes and featuring an Extended Industry Standard Architecture (EISA) bus.
 "The Decision 486se is targeted at the power user. The 32-bit EISA bus allows data to be moved between the CPU and I/O cards more quickly, which is ideal for file server applications," said Rich Wesson, vice president of business development for Wyse's Systems Division. "The new system also provides investment protection through its highly scalable architecture, a true product differentiator in the competitive PC environment."
 The new EISA-based PC, based on Intel's 33MHz i486DX processor, joins the Decision 486si Industry Standard Architecture (ISA)-based systems announced in July. The Decision 486se-33DX is the first in a family of EISA-based systems.
 Besides acting as a compact file server, the powerful Decision 486se-33DX is also targeted for performance-sensitive applications such as computer-aided design, multimedia, scientific analysis and desktop publishing. The local bus video subsystem, called Hyper16 Video, provides peak graphics performance for high-end graphics applications as well. The local bus system alleviates the bottlenecks which occur on standard video implementations that send images over the bus.
 In addition to optimized performance, the system features easy processor upgrades through the use of a Zero Insertion Force (ZIF) socket. The system's CPU can be easily removed, replaced and secured with the flick of a lever. No BIOS, cache or memory changes are necessary. This lowest-upgrade-cost architecture saves users the expense of purchasing a proprietary motherboard or upgrade board and supports a broader range of possible multi-vendor upgrades. The Decision 486se design can accommodate 16 to 33MHz i486(TM)SX and i486(TM)DX processors, as well as 50MHz i486(TM)DX2, 66MHz i486(TM)DX2 and Intel OverDrive(TM) upgrade processors.
 Users can also fine tune system performance by scaling various features. The standard 4MB of RAM can be expanded to a maximum of 128MB using industry-standard single in-line memory modules (SIMMs). The external memory cache is scalable to 256KB or 512KB. Built-in flexibility is offered through five half-height storage shelves and seven EISA expansion slots, including two available for local bus devices.
 Product availability will be in late November. Standard configurations include 4MB RAM, 256KB cache, DOS 5.0 and Windows 3.1. List prices for the Decision 486se-33DX range from $2,199 to $2,669.
