    Leading the Road to the Future: EPoX Unveils two Intel® 915
    Motherboards-EP-5EGA+; EP-5EPA+

    [Taipei, June 21st, 2004] - World-renowned mainboard manufacture, EPoX
    Computer Co. Ld. (EPoX), introduces its Intel® 915 (Grantsdale)
    motherboards, the EP-5EGA+(915G Express Chipset + ICH6R) and EP-5EPA+ (915P
    Express Chipset + ICH6R), bringing together style and future technology in a
    desirable, compact, and powerful unit.

    Utilizing Intel®'s next generation platform, 915 Express Chipset, EP-5EGA+
    and EP-5EPA+ offer new levels of system performance. EP-5EGA+ features
    onboard Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator 900 (GMA 900), which improves
    gaming and media experience through optimized 2D performance and support for
    key 3D applications, such as DirectX* 9 and OpenGL 1.4. PCI Express is the
    first major system bus architectural change in 10 years. EP-5EGA+ and
    EP-5EPA+ incorporate two ultra fast PCI-Express x1 slots, which extend
    bandwidth up to 250Mb/s and overcome the bottleneck of bandwidth-intensive
    applications. Moreover, the on-board PCI Express x 16 graphics slot is
    designed for new generation VGA cards, which deliver up to 4GB/s bandwidth
    and up to 4X faster than previous high-end discrete graphics solutions.

    Perceiving the demand for thermal control, intensive data transmission, and
    the convergence of digital entertainment, EPoX added various superb
    features, and value-added extras into the EP-5EGA+ and EP-5EPA+. EPoX's
    exclusive Thermo Stick, a flexible thermometer, is ideal for monitoring VGA
    card, chipset or even disk drive temperature. Intel® Matrix RAID Technology
    improves the overall RAID experience in terms of performance, flexibility,
    and ease of use. This technology improves storage performance with
    revolutionary RAID 0 and RAID 1 volumes combines on two hard drives. This
    new RAID technology also allows seamless migration to RAID 0 or RAID 1 from
    a RAID-ready configuration.

    EPoX designed a simple yet stylish package for this new offering. "The produ
    ct is just like "Wind", a gentle but powerful element of nature. It provides
    overwhelming performance like a tornado and a gentle user experience like a
    soft sea breeze," said Timothy Hsu, marketing director of EPoX Computer. "We
    will implement the same image concept in the following Intel® series
