UMAX Computer Corporation Announces Powerful New SuperMac System Targeting
High
End Professional Users

Fremont, Calif., March 17, 1997 -- UMAX Computer Corporation today
expanded its high end family of SuperMac S900 Mac OS-compatible workstations
with the S900/233 system based on a 233 MHz PowerPC 604e processor with an
estimated street price of $4,199.
Like the rest of the S900 family, the new system has been engineered
with UMAX' Advanced Scaleable Processor Design (A.S.P.D.) architecture,
enabling
a user to upgrade the primary processor card to faster speeds, and providing a
slot for a secondary processor card, allowing users to upgrade to a
dual-processor system without removing the original processor. UMAX
supports the
leading standards of Mac OS multiprocessing through DayStar nPOWER
multiprocessing technology. The unique degree of upgradeability guards
SuperMac
S900 systems against premature obsolescence.
"The new system provides the UNIX workstation-class performance
graphics
professionals demand at substantially lower prices than are typically found in
the workstation market," said Andy Chang, senior vice president of worldwide
sales for UMAX Computer Corporation. "By continuing to incorporate the
fastest
PowerPC processors into our SuperMac line as soon as they become available,
UMAX
will help expand the Mac OS segment of the high end graphics market while
simultaneously providing investment protection for our users through CPU
processor card upgrades."
"Motorola is pleased that UMAX is expanding its SuperMac S900
family of
workstations, and we are happy to be providing high-performance PowerPC 604e
microprocessors for UMAX' highest-speed systems," noted Tom Gunter, corporate
vice president and general manager, Motorola RISC Microprocessor Division.
"Focusing on the scalability and price/performance advantages of PowerPC
microprocessors allows UMAX to deliver the superior graphics and multimedia
performance that its customers demand."
New System Features
The SuperMac S900/233 is the first system from UMAX Computer
Corporation
to ship with Mac OS 7.6 and features 8 MB VRAM standard on its IMS 128-bit
graphics accelerator.
Standard S900 Features
All current SuperMac S900 systems ship with 32 MB of interleaved main
memory that can be expanded to over 1 GB, 512K level-2 cache, 4 or 8 MB
VRAM on
an IMS 128-bit graphics accelerator (depending on model), 8X speed CD-ROM, 2.1
GB SCSI hard drive, 1.4 MB floppy disk drive, 6 PCI card slots, and 4
available
drive bays for adding devices. A keyboard and mouse are also included.
UMAX' SuperMac S900 systems also feature built-in Ethernet
(10Base-T and
the Apple AAUI Ethernet connectors) standard. The systems have an internal
Fast
SCSI-2 bus and a standard external SCSI bus, along with two serial ports
and two
Apple Desktop Bus (ADB) interconnects for a keyboard and another ADB device.
The S900 systems include 16-bit CD-quality stereo audio that can be
accessed by
either a front or rear audio jack.
The SuperMac S900 systems also feature a PCI-to-PCI bridge that
enables
direct communication between any of the devices in the system's six PCI
slots.
The resulting user advantage is a system that is more expandable and easier to
configure than any other system supporting six PCI slots on the Mac
OS-compatible market.
Warranty and Technical Support
UMAX' basic warranty extends for one year and provides for a three-day
onsite response time for warranty repairs, if needed, with unlimited access
to a
toll-free technical support line that is open from 6 a.m. to 12 midnight,
Central Standard Time, seven days a week. Service is provided nationwide
through both a network of resellers who have qualified as UMAX Authorized
Service Providers and by DecisionOne, the largest independent computer systems
support organization in North America with 3,900 technical personnel
deployed in
150 service offices.
Availability
The SuperMac S900/233 Mac OS-compatible workstation will ship in late
March.

Multiprocessing
UMAX' S900 multiprocessor systems contain nPOWER technology licensed
from DayStar Digital.

range
of Mac OS compatible SuperMac systems based on the PowerPC chip architecture,

for the SuperMac S900, which first shipped in June, 1996.

enables a user to upgrade a system's primary processor card to faster
speeds as

obsolescence. The high end SuperMac S900 systems also feature a slot for a
secondary processor to support multiprocessing. SuperMac S900 systems support
the Mac OS-compatible industry standard for multiprocessing, DayStar Digital's
nPOWER technology.
"We are pleased to be able to protect users' investments in our
high end
systems by offering the options of upgrading the primary processor and also by
providing a multiprocessor implementation," said Andy Chang, senior vice
president of worldwide sales for UMAX Computer Corporation. "The upgrades are
as simple as plugging a card into a slot on the system board, and can be
quickly
performed by the user since the system enclosure was designed for easy access
through a removable panel."
