Coen Rijkaart schrijft dat Tom het tweede deel van zijn Computex 2000 verslag online heeft gezet. In deze aflevering wat info over o.a. de Asus A7V, CUSL2, CUC2 en de CUSI-FX. Daarnaast een gedeelte over RioWorks die de markt voor dual-processor mobo's wil gaan veroveren:
You might not be too familiar with RioWorks right now, but there's a very good chance that this name will soon be established amongst the well-known motherboard makers in the world.
RioWorks merged with the large OEM supplier Arima last year, which made some 1.2 billion dollars revenue in 1999 with their server and workstation solutions. Therefore RioWorks is acting from a rather healthy financial background.
Paul Shay, who's in charge of RioWorks has got big plans. He wants to establish his company as the number one motherboard provider for dual-processor platforms. He is not afraid of the world's toughest markets in Japan and Germany, where people have particularly high quality expectations. I was rather impressed by MR. Shay's visions, who is not interested in providing cheap stuff, but top quality products. Basically he is planning to replace the Supermicros and Tyans from the past and become the Asus of the dual-CPU motherboard arena.
