G.Skill's enhanced persona will kick off at the Computex convention in Taipei next week. That's where G.Skill "will be making a strong entrance in the field of PC gaming peripherals" starting with newly engineered gaming headsets. Here's a teaser shot... Read more...

Computex is a major trade show where companies of all sorts show off their upcoming products and discuss manufacturing trends. It's a great place to get a feel for what's going to be hot in the second half of the year, but it also lends itself to a type of exuberant prediction. In this case, Simon Segars, head of ARM's processor division, told reporters that we could see 20nm devices shipping as soon as the end of 2013. "The whole industry is focused on moving to the next generation as soon as it's economically viable and technologically achievable," Segars told the group. According to CIO, analyst... Read more...
Ah, the wide world of Windows 8 is opening up even further this week, and in a major way. Computex is the launching ground for quite a few new Win8-based devices, with Asus in particular introducing the Windows RT Tablet. It's a 10.1" convertible device with an optional keyboard dock, using NVIDIA's Tegra 3 quad-core mobile processor. There's plenty of power here, for sure. ASUS didn’t disclose pricing or availability for what they described for now as a product preview, but that seems to be the norm with these Windows 8-based rigs. The companies are aiming for a "no-compromise, touch-first... Read more...
Who would've known that Computex would be the official coming-out party for what's likely the final build of Windows 8?

The Aspire 7600U supports up to 64-point simultaneous touch from all angles, enabling use by multiple users at once.

Like many companies, Asus and ViewSonic are busy preparing for Computex 2012 which kicks off June 5 in Taiwan. In the meantime, both of these companies are teasing us with information about what we can expect to see at the show. A teaser video from Asus gives us only a few details about what Asus will be announcing. For example, the video suggests we shouldn't get set into one form, which could be a reference to Asus' Transformer line of tablets. Considering most of the video takes place in the cloud, it's possible Asus is planning to introduce some cloud-friendly features as well. Although these... Read more...

Zotac's Zbox line has been evolving rather quickly over the past year or so. We've tested a few of them along the way, and they just seem to be getting better and better, and at rapid speed. In fact, we aren't so sure that buying one today is the best idea; by the time tomorrow comes, it'll probably be out of date! Kidding aside, the company has teamed up with VIA to showcase a totally new Zbox at Computex 2011. The Zbox Mini-PC offers up a very compact form factor, VIA's Nano X2 dual-core CPU, and a "palm-sized" chassis that measures 13x13x5cm. This type of machine is obviously ideal for use as...

Computex 2011 has officially started off with a major bang, and it's largely thanks to Asus. The company has led the way with a slew of announcements, with the Padfone being the one that'll have people talking and gawking for months. But this one ain't bad, either. The Eee Pad Memo 3D hops onto two bandwagons at once: slate, and 3D. But can you really blame Asus? LG's G-Slate is already offering 3D support in a tablet, so Asus is already having to play catch-up. The Eee Pad Memo 3D is a 7" tablet, which comes as somewhat of a surprise. Lots of newer tablets are using the larger 8.9" or 10" form... Read more...

A few days ago, we showed you the first dual GPU Fermi videocard from Galaxy, revealed the latest PCI Express SSD from OCZ called the Revo Drive, and exposed you to the monstrous HD 5970 Eyefinity 12 from PowerColor. In addition, we gathered a ton of information on the latest tablet PCs being presented at the show, with a couple of hands-on videos thrown into the mix.
