Hardware News   Hardware News : Elbox Spider driver for Amithlon
   posted by ikir on 1-Apr-2003 13:00:51 (1669 reads)
Elbox Computer is pleased to announce completion of the development of the new Spider drivers. New drivers for the Spider USB 2.0 PCI cards extend the range of supported hardware with computers running AmigaOS under Amithlon.

'Amithlon users have overwhelmingly and repeatedly told us they absolutely wanted the features of the USB 2.0 standard as soon as the Spider USB 2.0 card entered the market,' said Darek Smietana, support manager at Elbox. 'We are proud to deliver our sophisticated and innovative USB hardware to Amithlon users. Now they can enjoy all the benefits of the USB 2.0 Hi-Speed functionality in their systems. Needless to say, we are again following our basic business rule with this step: to give to users more than they could expect.'

The new USB driver is enclosed in the Spider CD bundled with the new version of the Spider USB 2.0 card, whose availability will be announced in the coming days.

For more info about Spider, see the Spider USB 2.0 card website.

Hopefully this means that Elbox will sell their multimedia CD with updated drivers for OS4/AmigaOne's once they are released, which should mean drivers for TV capture cards etc.
