ATI Technologies Inc. today introduced the ES1000, a flexible and stable
graphics solution for the server and thin client markets. Because of ATI’s
expertise in delivering reliable graphics, many industry-leading OEMs have
chosen ATI graphics as the preferred graphics solution for enterprise backbone
products like servers for over six years. The ES1000 builds on ATI’s strengths
and reputation and delivers a new product that meets low power consumption and
long life cycle requirements while delivering proven reliability.

“Historically, graphics needs for servers were met by using older, legacy
desktop or notebook graphics solutions,” said Rich Heye, Vice President and GM,
Desktop Discrete Products, ATI. “With the input of major OEMs and platform
developers, we have designed the ES1000 from the start to meet the unique
requirements of the server environment.”

The ES1000, a PCI-based graphics chip, is designed for server vendors which
require products with strong support, reliability, longevity and low prices. The
chip supports a variety of memory and display configurations, making it
extremely flexible and suitable for a wide range of server platforms. When
integrated into a server, either directly on the motherboard or as an
add-in-card, the ES1000 provides stable and reliable display functionality for
direct or remote server management. It also leverages CATALYST™, ATI’s unified
software suite, which undergoes ATI’s rigorous product validation process and
testing.

“Intel and ATI have worked closely to define the graphics requirements needed
for next generation servers based on Intel Architecture, and the ES1000 is the
culmination of this effort,” said Tom Matson, Director of Marketing for the
Enterprise Products and Services Division at Intel. “Products like ATI’ ES1000
enable us to continue to offer more competitive building blocks for Intel®
architecture-based server platforms.”

“The next generation of server applications demand higher levels of graphics
performance,” said Don Clegg, VP of Marketing and OEM Alliances at Tyan Computer
Corporation. “With the addition of ATI’s ES1000 server graphics solution on the
Tyan Thunder i7522 (S5362), our server customers will enjoy levels of graphics
processing power previously unavailable to them.”

The ES1000 will also be available in completely RoHS (a directive regulating
hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment) compliant chip and
board designs to meet needs of OEMs and companies who are working towards
lead-free products and RoHS compliance, demonstrating ATI’s leadership in this
area.

The ES1000 is currently being qualified by major OEMs for use in current and
future server products. For more information on this product please visit
