Applied Microsystems Technology Ltd of Cricklewood, North London, is close to launching a micro based on a 20MHz Intel 80386 processor with the clock speed turned up to 25MHz. With zero wait states, the company is claiming a blistering 32MHz per formance for the box. However, it is having problems with the chips. Only one-in-ten are able to cope with the demand. The system, including a 40Mb hard disk, 80 nano-second RAM, and EGA card should be available in March for ?3,995. UK general manager and ex-Tandy UK marketing director Ted Russell says the company will do around ?15m this year, with two-thirds of turnover coming from overseas, mainly Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. AMT’s success in the Arab world is partly down to a hard disk machine for students containing a version of the Koran – the Islamic bible.
