ALi Introduces Southbridge Supporting Maxtor(superscript: R)'s New Generation Ultra ATA/133 Hard Drive Interface - ALi's M1535D+ Eliminates IDE Bottleneck to Enhance System Performance

San Jose, CA. September 4, 2001¡V Acer Laboratories Inc. (ALi), one of the world's leading integrated circuit solutions provider, today announced the southbridge M1535D+ supporting Maxtor(superscript: R)'s (NYSE: MXO) Fast Drive ATA/133 hard drive interface technology. Overpowering potential IDE bottlenecks while providing superior system performance, ALi's new southbridge M1535D+ expeditiously transfers data between the hard drive and the main system up to one-third times faster than current technology.

"ALi's heritage has long been recognized for exceeding customer's demands by aggressively pushing out the industry's most innovative technology in the shortest time frame. Once again, today's announcement of the M1535D+ accentuates our commitment to develop the most cost effective and energy efficient southbridge technology available on the market," said Dr. Chin Wu, president of ALi. "The technological breakthrough of the new Ultra ATA/133 interface is crucial in providing swift and even data transfer between memory and hard drive. Through working closely with Maxtor(superscript: R), ALi is optimistic the Ultra ATA/133 will be deemed the de facto standard of the PC industry."

"We are thrilled to have an industry leader, such as ALi, integrating the Ultra ATA/133 interface into their next generation portfolio of products. ALi's new southbridge M1535D+ is an ideal solution that allows PC systems to perform at their finest -- without the menace of data bottlenecks," said Ted Deffenbaugh, vice president of product strategy at Maxtor.

Ultra ATA/133 is a new hard drive interface technology that utilizes the current IDE interface transmission. The new interface, which is 1.3 times faster than earlier Ultra ATA/100 technology, is also backward compatible to ATA/66 and /100.
