Tatung's latest products include a range of AMD Opteron and Xeon based
rack mount and blade servers, plus their UK site lists some "Tablet
PCs" based on Intel CPUs.  I admit I had never heard of a sparc clone
made by them. Seeing as the sparc based models listed on the
www.tsti.com site look kind of old hat nowadays, I don't thing it's
safe to assume 'Tatung' means 'Sparc Clone' any more...

Still, I'm sure the OP will clarify exactly what sort of machine he
has if he needs any further information.
