Berkshire based Hypertec is further enhancing its product range with the launch of a revolutionary new product, the Phoenix 370/S System Upgrade board. The Phoenix is a complete PC upgrade that upgrades the processing, video, graphics, sound and memory capabilities of virtually any desktop or minitower PC in minutes.

The Phoenix upgrade board can even increase the lifespan of the oldest 286-, 386-, or 486- based computer by a couple of years, at a fraction of the cost of replacing the base unit.

Simon Smart, Hypertec’s Technical Director explains "With the Phoenix there is no BIOS hassle, no compatibility issues, it’s as simple as inserting an add-on card." He continues "Simply by adding this upgrade to a range of machines you instantly bring them up to current technology and create an install base of single image machines, irrespective of the original system. In other words, your PCs all become identical in terms of support and administration, easing the difficulties of administering large PC install bases."

The upgrade board uses patented technology that adapts systems to the voltage and Front Side Bus requirements of the new generation of Intel processors. It utilises today’s advanced technology including two unbuffered 3.3 Volt 168-pin DIMM sockets for SDRAM support, giving a maximum memory capacity of 1 GB.

The product is being launched at the Computer Trade Show 2001 at the NEC Birmingham on 21st - 22nd Feb. Hypertec can be found on Stand 106.

The Phoenix 370/S System Upgrade Board is available from the UK’s leading computer resellers. For further information on where to buy, contact the Hypertec Sales team on 01488 686844 or visit
