ALi announces Aladdin IV Pro

— 1:25 AM on January 23, 2000

Acer Laboratories, Inc. is back in the chipset game with a new core logic design that attempts to catch up with the latest from Via and Intel. From the press release:

The Aladdin-Pro 4 supports Pentium III and Pentium II CPUs, 100MHz Front Side Bus (FSB), and a variety of memory architectures including PC 133, PC 100 and Virtual Channel memory. . . . For Desktop Systems, the Aladdin-Pro 4 includes the same Northbridge - the M1641 - which is coupled with the M1535D Southbridge. The high integration of the M1535D, which includes audio, super I/O, USB, UDMA 66/33, KBC among other features, results in not only a high performance and flexible design, but very cost-effective platforms across multiple market segments.
Yep, it's "cost-effective." The folks at ALi are proud descendants of that great Spanish conquistador, El Cheapo. (Thanks to TR news hound Maizel for this one.)
Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
