This was a 32-bit desktop office computer (*1) from Uchida Yoko. The four models of the newly developed USAC GX Super Station Series employed 32-bit MPUs, and could be used for engineering support applications. These models were announced in October 1988. The GX Series was based on a dual-purpose concept -- combining the standalone office computer design which was a key feature of Uchida Yoko's Camarade Series, with the workstation functionality of the USAC2001 Series of high-end office computers. In this way, this series could inherit Camarade assets (data, programs) to enhance linkage functionality and improve development productivity. The series also provided greater functionality with multiple windows, multiple processes, a multi-user environment and object-oriented operation.
In October 1990, Uchida Yoko filled out the series lineup by announcing laptop models (GX170LT and GX130LT), the GX-A Series with improved performance, and a low-cost model (the GX90) specially for work station connection.
