ASPEED Introduces Private Cloud Computing Solution for Computex

--Get the Most out of Your PC Without Sacrificing Your Computing Experience--


Taipei, Taiwan, May 28, 2010 - ASPEED Technology Inc., a highly innovative fabless SoC-centric IC design house will showcase a new technology at Comutex 2010 in Taipei, Taiwan.  From June 1st to June 5th at Hall 3, Booth number G651.  Aspeed will exhibit the latest gear in desktop virtualization and explain the benefits that end users can expect.   

Base on the core technologies developed from our existing product lines, ASPEED is taking steps into resource virtualization, a cloud computing hardware realization. The newly released ASPEED AST 1160/70/80 chipset shows ASPEED’s innovative approach to research and development.  The new flagship chipset is considered the most performance enhanced, cost effective solution for desktop virtualization. 

“With today’s powerful PCs, much of the computing power is wasted.  Not only is a waste of money, but also leaving a big footprint in the environment.  Sharing the computing resource of one desktop PC by multiple users has become highly feasible and smart,” commented Chris Lin, President of ASPEED Technology Inc. "Not only does the AST1160/70/80 chipset offer one of the industry’s most comprehensive solution but also allow users to spend less money for the same experience as a conventional PC.“

 ASPEED’s new chipset, AST1160/70/80 is a powerful add-on-peripheral to enable desktop PC to function as a Shared Resource Computing Platform with Microsoft’s resource virtualization product: “Windows Multipoint Server 2010”. Its flexible deployment extends user deployment distance up to 100 meters away from the shared resource platform.  Extension beyond 100 meter is also possible with additional network extender. 

 Product Features:

•   Excellent Graphics and Video Experience: Integrated 2D graphics engine and video decoding accelerator, removing resourcing dependency.

•   Wide Range of USB Support: Support all the USB peripherals at extended user location.

•   Low Upfront Hardware Acquisition Cost

•   True Green Computing: Less than 3 Watts per User

•   Lower Management Complexity: Easily handled by non-IT staff, no network setting and operation hurdle.
