NextComputing Announces NextDimension Evo and Evo HD, its Newest Flextop Portable Computers

NASHUA, N.H. – January 16, 2007 – NextComputing announced today two new additions to its NextDimension family of flextop computers, the NextDimension Evo and NextDimension Evo HD. The company originated the flextop class of computers, the term first emerging about a year ago when NextComputing released its ground-breaking computer, the NextDimension.

The NextDimension Evo and Evo HD both retain " flextop features," like open standards architecture, flexible I/O options, upgradeability, high performance processing, and extreme graphics capabilities. The Evo models significantly increase open standards I/O options, maximizing the flexibility to customize for specific applications, such as those that are graphically intensive and/or require both high end graphics and video.

The Evo is intended for use as a workstation and/or server in simply the smallest form-factor available. The Evo maximizes precious work space for the engineer, developer, or designer who requires intensive processing performance and expanded open standard I/O options.

The Evo HD features an integrated hi-definition display. This all-in-one box solution is an ideal platform for a number of portable applications, such as intensive graphical application demonstrations and remote digital recording/editing.

Basic specifications of both NextDimension Evo models reflect the company’s original intent to provide a small form factor computing powerhouse. Features include: (1) or (2) single- or dual-core AMD Opteron™ processors with Direct Connect Architecture, up to 16GB DDRAM, (3) Gigabit Ethernet ports, up to (2) quick-time removable HDDs totaling 320GB, and support for all major 32- and 64-bit environments. The dimensions of the Evo and Evo HD are impressively small at 5.69"D x 11.44"H x 16.8"W.

With 3 PCI Express x16 or PCI-X slots, up to (3) independent storage options that can be used in any combination of quick-time removable drives, and NextPak mass storage disk option allowing storage configurations up to 800GB, the NextDimension Evo and Evo HD provide the greatest number of I/O configurations available in a form-factor smaller than a tower desktop workstation. Additionally, the Evo and Evo HD support NextComputing’s clip-on portable, hi-def, flat panel monitor.

"We see NextComputing's NextDimension Evo as a unique implementation of AMD Opteron™ processors, fulfilling a niche requirement for small form-factor, high-performance computing," said Patrick Patla, director, Server and Workstation Business, AMD.

"The NextDimension Evo is exactly what its name implies: the natural evolution of flextop computing. This model is even more flexible and powerful, allowing such a vast number of configuration options that virtually any application needing multiple I/O functionality of any kind is possible. We remain true to the high performance needs of our key vertical industries: CAD, DCC, Broadcasting, Test and Measurement to name a few. And the system is an out of the box solution in a small form-factor that is unprecedented," comments Bob Labadini, President and CTO of NextComputing.

NextComputing expects great interest from companies desiring to create an OEM solution with its newest Evo and Evo HD models, and is offering private label branding in minimum volume requirements.

The NextDimension Evo and Evo HD further solidify flextop computing as an equal performance alternative to workstations that are much bigger, bulkier, and difficult to relocate. NextComputing expects flextops to become a mainstay in the HPC community, and continues to strive for technological advancements in keeping with current targeted industry trends.
