That would be a NEC APC, which is a fantastic machine. It was aimed
squarely at the CAD market, and had very high-end graphics capabilities
for the time, built around a NEC 7220 graphics controller.
I have one of those machines, but it has an as-yet-undiagnosed
hardware problem. I hope to get it running someday.
