An unknown Taiwanese company seems to have won the race to demonstrate the first clones of the Microchannel models in IBM’s Personal System/2 line. Twynhead Corp has reportedly been showingt the Superset-80, Supserset-50, and Superset-30 and 30 Plus at the Hanover Fair. Most interesting appears to be the 50, which is available with the 16MHz 80286 from Advanced Micro Devices, or a 12MHz version, compared with the 10MHz chip used in IBM’s Model 50. The 80 comes with 20MHz or 16MHz 80386 and supports both 80387 and 80287 maths chips and up to 16Mb of zero wait-state memory. The 30 comes with built-in MDA, CGA and Hercules graphics, and the 30 Plus has IBM’s VGA graphics. No indication of the prices was given. IBM is unlikely to get very excited about cloning of the PS/2 Model 30, but 50 and 80 are another matter.
