IDF Showcase: NVIDIA, Corsair, X38 and More
X38 Systems and Kingston
There were a multitude of products on display on the show floor at the Intel Developers Forum this year, most of which were designed for the enterprise space. In addition to the plethora of servers on display, however, were products from a number of manufactures that are well known to enthusiasts. We stopped by a few of their booths and snapped off some pictures to give you all an idea as to what was on display.
One of Intel’s many booths had quite a few interesting systems on display. Machines from CyberPower, Falcon Northwest, 3XS, Maingear, and a handful of other partners were being demoed in the booth, all featuring quad-core processors and Intel’s upcoming X38 chipset. The 3XS system really caught our eye, with its innovative chassis design and integrated CPU water cooling system. This machine was decked out with a Core 2 Extreme QX6850 quad-core chip, 2GB of RAM and dual ATI Radeon 2900 XTs in CrossFire.
There were also a multitude of Centrino notebooks on display of varying form factors from all of the major players in the mobile space, like Asus, MSI, Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, Sony and others. Hey, is that Scott and Adam from the Tech Report checking out those notebooks?
Kingston was also at the show showcasing their numerous desktop and server memory products, in addition to their extensive line of flash memory devices. A display loaded with DDR3 DIMMs from just about every memory manufacture was also nearby.
