Iwill has announced that future Athlon motherboards will have AMI onboard IDE RAID.

Iwill and  American Megatrends Inc. Partner to Deliver IDE RAID Embedded Solutions


New Intel and AMD products to have AMI's HyperDisk 100

Irvine, CA (Tuesday, August 1, 2000) Iwill Corporation has announced a partnership with American Megatrends Inc. (AMI), the leader in storage and computing innovations worldwide, to deliver its next generation Intel Pentiumr III and AMDr Athlon platform motherboards integrating AMI's IDEal 100, as featured in AMI's HyperDiskT 100.

"Based on AMI's strong background in RAID, BIOS and motherboard technologies, we are positive its new on-board IDE RAID, IDEal 100, will be a great product," said Mason Su, GM Iwill Corp. "The IDEal 100's ability to include on-board RAID functionality with motherboards designed for high-end desktops, workstations and entry-level servers ensures a great benefit to many users."

By offering IDE RAID embedded into desktop and workstation motherboards, AMI and Iwill provide users with the ability to increase system performance without the use of add-in cards. AMI's IDE RAID family meets the performance requirements for desktop publishing, the graphic workstation entrepreneur and the capacity requirements of the small office/small business server.

"Our collaboration with Iwill reinforces our commitment to providing the best RAID solutions the industry has to offer," said Sanjay Sehgal, AMI Vice President of Sales. "Iwill's high quality and innovative motherboards are in-line with our policy of providing customers with high quality RAID products to consumers at a reasonable cost."

The cooperation couldn't be better for both companies and consumers, as the industry moves toward low-cost storage solutions. As IDE RAID gains acceptance in the marketplace, AMI and Iwill will provide expertly designed solutions for all levels of data protection, from the desktop to workstation and entry-level server environments.

AMI's IDE RAID includes data striping (RAID 0) and mirroring (RAID 1), which make the entire solution an important tool in today's computing environment. These RAID levels provide users with a better application performance every time a file is saved or retrieved and offers greater economy and longevity for nearly every PC made today. This virtually eliminates downtime in case a drive crashes.
