Taipei, Taiwan, 30 October 2003 – First International Computer, Inc (FIC), a world leader in the design and production of motherboards for over 20 years, introduces the newest in a long line of ingenious mainboards – the P4M-RS300. The P4M-RS300 includes an array of advanced technology and takes advantage of the revolutionary new ATi Radeon 9100 IGP. The Radeon 9100 IGP is a competitively-priced, high performance chipset that redefines integrated graphics by delivering breathtaking graphics performance to mainstream PC users.

For the first time, everyone will able to see the spectacular 3D visual effects implemented in the latest games. “In the past, mainstream PC users have had to settle for what they could afford when it came to graphics,” says John Villejo, Vice President of International Sales, First International Computer, Inc. “For most, this meant the inability to play 3D games. The new 9100 IGP from ATi has allowed FIC to create a graphics intense, but cost-effective motherboard that closes the graphics gap between high-end and mainstream users.”

The embedded graphics available with the Radeon 9100 IGP, along with support for DirectX 8.1, ensure that FIC’s P4M-RS300 delivers an unprecedented graphics experience. Playing 3D games is now a reality for anyone who wants it. In addition, ATi’s SurroundView Technology allows both the Radeon 9100 IGP’s embedded graphics and an AGP add-in card to function simultaneously, enhancing the overall graphics performance.

The FIC P4M-RS300 supports all Pentium 4 platforms with HyperThreading technology and includes Dual-Channel DDR400, with up to 2GB of memory, significantly boosting system-wide performance. The P4M-RS300’s dual channel architecture, 800 MHz FSB support, as well as USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394 support, make this the ideal system builders’ motherboard. Expansion is also possible with 3 PCI slots and 1 8X AGP slot included.

You won’t find a more affordable P4 motherboard, packed with so much graphics power and performance, anywhere.
