Digital Equipment is ramping up Chinese language support for Microsoft NT in the hope of attracting Taiwanese companies to build systems based on its new Alpha 21164 PC chip.
The company addressed over 100 Taiwanese computer industry officials last week in an effort to drum up support, and claimed its Alpha-based systems would be capable of running applications on Chinese versions of NT by November.
Digital wants to sell its 21164PC-powered systems for around $2,600 and reckons Taiwanese companies could play a crucial role in lowering costs of production. The company said it hopes to sign up several Taiwanese makers in the near future.
