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...
Among the myriad of other products, like the Padfone, Asus has just unveiled and will likely continue to unveil at Computex this week were a pair of exciting ultraportable notebooks and netbooks that are sure to pique the interest of the discerning road-warriors out there. The just announced Asus UX Series ultraportable notebooks prove that thin is most definitely in this year and the upcoming Asus Eee PC X101 reinforces that assertion. Asus UX Series Notebook--Notice The "Spun" Finish On The Lid According to Asus, the new UX Series ultraportables have been developed in close cooperation... Read more...
Due to the development of more powerful CPUs and graphics processors, we demand more from our power supplies today than we have in years past. To meet those demands, Corsair announced the Professional Series Gold AX1200, AX850, and AX750 power supply units at Computex earlier this year. Now, these new power supplies are available. The Professional Series Gold is based on a server-grade power train architecture. The line delivers over 90% efficiency at 50% load when using a 115V AC input. The Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200, AX850 and AX750 PSUs use a fully-modular low-profile cable set... Read more...
Although we previously covered several hot topics from Computex, there is still a lot to talk about. 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. Here's our final wrap up of the latest news to come out of Computex 2010... Computex 2010 Wrap-up Computex 2010 - Taipei, Taiwan... Read more...
Every year, the largest computer exhibition in Asia is held in Taipei, Taiwan over the course of five days. Computex is huge, and spans several buildings throughout the city. Only CeBIT, held in Germany, can claim to attract more visitors and businesses to their event. But it makes sense that Computex has the pull that it does, since many companies have R&D and production fabs located in Taiwan. So naturally, the event draws thousands of IT analysts and tech journalists in order to report on the latest and greatest of the computer industry. Taipei 101 - Computex Mecca Although we previously... Read more...
ASUS has teamed up with DisplayLink to provide users with the connectivity and productivity benefits of a universal docking station. The new ASUS Universal Docking Station uses DisplayLink’s USB virtual graphics processor, the DL-165, which enables auxiliary displays to support HD resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 (wide). The new docking station measures 26x8x2cm and offers the following ports: 10/100 Ethernet, VGA, DVI, audio out, microphone in, four high-speed USB 2.0 ports, and Kensington Lock support. DisplayLink and ASUS Announce Worldwide Availability of Universal Docking... Read more...
At Computex 2010, tablet PCs were all the rage.  Intel had several tablets on display at their booth, as did many other manufacturers. And while every model shown in out sneak peek is a prototype, most of them were running an operating system and looked like they were close to being ready for prime time. Of course the bulk of these machines were Intel Atom-based systems, but we were on the look-out for NVIDIA Tegra 2 models as well... Computex 2010 Tablet PC Round-up... Read more...
At Computex 2010, tablet PCs were all the rage. We've already touched on the Eee Pad and Eee Tablet from Asus and given you a glimpse at the Wind Pad from MSI. But those aren't the only two manufacturers that are vying to take market share from the Apple iPad. Intel had several tablets on display at their booth and while every model shown here is a prototype, most of them were running an operating system and looked like they were getting ready for prime time. Of course the bulk of these were Intel Atom-based systems, but we were on the look-out for NVIDIA Tegra 2 models as well.  One... Read more...
At Computex this past week, no fewer than 12 new tablet PCs were introduced, or at least showcased behind glass for the first time. That's a lot of iPad competition, and while most of them won't be shipping for at least a few months, there's no doubt that Apple has a huge target on their back. Most of these tablets ran either Android or Windows 7, but only time will tell how well either of those systems can do on a tablet form factor. But aside from the software story, there's a rather large hardware story as well. Many of these tablets were shown at Intel's booth, and while a few had chips from... Read more...
There's no shortage of outrageous hardware over here in Computex 2010. But one of the most memorable products we've seen in Taiwan came from ATI graphics partner, PowerColor. The HD 5970 Eyefinity 12 Edition is so extreme that its "mainly for commercial use" and not made for specifically for the consumer market. For the most part, it looks a lot like the reference design HD 5970, but features 4GB of memory and 12 mini-DisplayPort connections by making use of a small extender board which adds another 6 ports to the ones found on the rear panel of the card. In case you were wondering, the card takes... Read more...
AMD has been pushing "Fusion" for about as long as we can remember, and the idea of merging the CPU and GPU certainly sounds good. Other companies are definitely trying to accomplish similar goals with rivaling technologies, but the main problem for AMD has been producing a working product that can be shipped on existing products. At the Computex show in Taiwan this week, AMD put their biggest stamp of approval yet on Fusion by introduction the Fusion APU technology. The announcement was followed by the launch of the AMD Fusion Fund, a program to support development of new, enhanced consumer digital... Read more...
It just wouldn't be a proper Computex show without Intel, and now that the event is celebrating its 30th year, Intel is celebrating alongside of it with a bunch of new details surrounding their future product pipelines. The company took the wraps off of a few new chips, with highlights including a revised Atom family that comprises dual-core Pine Trail CPUs as well as "Oak Trail" processors that are optimized for tablets and sleek netbook form factors. But even Intel knows that while Tablet PCs are hot, they aren't everything. The notebook sector as a whole is continuing to boom, but one thing... Read more...
SanDisk is increasing the capacity and improving the performance of its SSD product line with new drives. The SSD G4 is designed as a drop-in replacement for notebook hard drives and the SSD P4 makes it possible for manufacturers to offer even thinner netbook and tablet computers. Both drives double the capacities of the company's previous SSD offerings—the SanDisk SSD P4 offers up to 128GB and the SanDisk SSD G4 offers up to 256GB of storage. The new drives are being evaluated by top tier OEMs; High-volume production of the drives is expected in the third quarter of this year. SanDisk Doubles... Read more...
