 MINNEAPOLIS, April 19 /PRNewswire/ -- ZEOS International (NASDAQ: ZEOS) today announced the availability of a new series of high-performance 486 personal computer systems that incorporate the award-winning technology of the ZEOS Pantera(TM) line. These new and improved 486 systems are the answer to both the value-minded and power- hungry user.
 The ZEOS 486 Pantera systems, based on Intel Corporation's (NASDAQ: INTC) 486SX, 486DX, 486DX2 and DX4 microprocessors running at speeds from 25MHz all the way to 100MHz, feature Intel's PCI (Peripheral Component Interconnect) local bus for enhanced performance of input/output devices.
 High-quality, technologically advanced computer systems at an attractive price are the hallmark of ZEOS International. ZEOS continues this tradition with their most recent line of Panteras. Replacing ZEOS 486 Upgradables, the new 486 Pantera systems offer improved performance, more flexibility, and easier upgrades for the future -- without a higher price tag.
 Based on ZEOS' award-winning Pentium(TM)-processor based Pantera line, the 486 Pantera line features a PCI Local Bus IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics) Controller that allows up to four IDE devices, including hard drives and future IDE devices such as CD-ROM drives and tape backups, to be connected directly to the system's PCI bus, enabling customers to experience faster performance and greater system flexibility.
 ZEOS Panteras also include eight expansion slots: 3 PCI (one includes a Diamond Computer Systems PCI local bus video card) and five ISA (Industry Standard Architecture) slots. The PCI local bus video card included supports to 2MB (megabyte) of memory and delivers 32-bit data at a rate up to 132MB per second.
 "ZEOS recently won three top industry awards including PC Magazine's Editors' Choice and PC/Computing's BEST for our Pentium-based Pantera systems," said Rick Apple, Vice President of Marketing for ZEOS International. "So naturally we are very pleased to bring this award- winning technology to our 486 line -- making these new systems the top 486s available today. By incorporating PCI, the hottest local bus technology, in our 486 Pantera, we provide the latest and most advanced technology available today. And the best news: we did all this without raising our prices."
 The 486 Pantera also includes RAM (Random Access Memory) upgradable to 128, two serial ports and one enhanced parallel port on the motherboard, socket for inexpensive on-board FAST SCSI-2 support, and a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force) socket for easy CPU upgrading to Intel's future pentium OverDrive processor.
