ORANGE, Calif., Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Transcend Information Inc., one of the world's largest OEM memory manufacturers, has expanded two popular product lines for ultra-slim notebooks for 1999. A 64mb option for the Sony VAIO 505's (PCG-505G and PCG-505GX), and 128MB for the Toshiba Portege 3010CT/3015CT, are immediately available and shipping in quantity. With Transcend's new 128MB upgrade, Toshiba Portege's pack 192MB of raw presentation/computational power. "Transcend engineers, faced with the computer's 2.9 pounds and 3/4" thickness, turned to TCP packaging to populate newly designed boards, saving valuable space and reducing heat," according to OEM Vice President of Sales Clarence Chan. (Transcend p/n TS64MT3010.) PC Computing's MVP champion, the Portege 3010CT is equipped with an Intel(R) 266MHz Pentium(R) processor with MMX technology, 4.3GB hard drive, 32MB of EDO DRAM, 3Com 56K PC card modem, 10.4-inch TFT display and 128-bit NeoMagic graphics accelerator. Transcend's 64MB VAIO upgrade was designed to dovetail with the 32 MB SDRAM (soldered on board) and the 505's single memory slot. The Transcend module takes the 505's up to their maximum 96MB capacity (Transcend p/n TS64MSY505). A 4x16, 10ns SDRAM design employs an 80-pin connector and provides 100% compatibility. The VAIO 505 systems feature Intel(R) Pentium(R) processors with MMX technology at 200 MHz (505G) and 266 MHz (505GX). Both feature 2.1 GB hard drives, built-in K56flex modem, 10.4-inch TFT SVGA screen, USB, infrared port, and a port replicator.

I was counting on increased royalites minorly during 1Q98, and significant higheer during RMBS 2Q-3Q 99. Increased earnings would definitely forsee a rise in RMBS price However, I was looking over RMBS 1998 annual report. It stated that PC main memory controller development will take 2 years to develop(pg 8). That statement was made in fiscal year 1998. I am projecting that to mean don't count on PC RDRAM royalites till RMBS fiscal year 2000 which begins fall 1999. On pg 9, RMBS states that Nitendo royalites will be the major source of royalites in fiscal 99. The last two news articles (PC World and Transend) do not add anything to clarify Intel RDRAM timetable. Can RMBS wait 4 quarters of 8-9c profit and keep all of it's price and then some? My question is rasied not to mean I am going to short RMBS tomorrow. However, we will probably be waiting a while for PC RDRAM royalites.
