EL MONTE, CA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2007) - AMREL announces the release of their Fully Rugged ROCKY RK886EX Notebook Computer. Packed with high performance features, the RK886 is screaming by its competition as the first fully rugged Notebook computer to offer a VGA 128MB NVIDIA option for supporting the advanced features of true 3D Modeling and CADD Systems. The ROCKY RK886's Intel Core 2 Duo CPU offers more processing power for faster application response time, while the multitasking experience provides enhanced performance responsiveness between concurrently running applications; and of course it's VISTA Compatible.

The ROCKY RK886's superior, high performance feature packed system contradicts the old adage that you can't combine MIL STD ruggedness with leading edge technology in one computer. Long known for its incredibly rugged construction, having survived fire, flood and crashes (images available), the ROCKY now moves to the lead as a provider of superior, high performance features for ease of use with today's demanding applications and harsh environments.

Providing one of the latest and fastest DDR2 RAM technologies on the market, the RK886EX uses DDR2-533 RAM with capacities from 512MB up to 2GB. The graphics solution on the RK886 is provided via a high end graphics option utilizing an NVIDIA processor with 128MB of memory, and an option up to 256MB is available. The NVIDIA graphics chipset will now enable you to utilize high end CADD systems, True 3D rendering, as well as supporting a native resolution of 1400x1050 through our 15.1" XGA screen with an option to upgrade to an SXGA+ screen. The RK886 also provides the latest in I/O technology through the PCIe (PCI Express) system bus and also offers an option for integrated GPS.
