A Sneak Peek Inside Computex: AMD, XFX, Shuttle

Greetings from rainy Taipei! Even though Computex is more than 24 hours from its official start, the convention center is packed with thousands of people getting booths ready for the show. We took a walk through the convention center today to see if we could find anything that would pique our interest.


One of the first things you notice when you get near the convention center is that computer companies are advertising in every place imaginable, including this blow up AMD sign on top of a shopping mall.

Currently, the show floor is filled with trash and workers hustling to try to build the hundreds of booths that make up Computex.

Although at this point almost none of the booths have any hardware on display, we came upon the Shuttle booth and a picture of a Shuttle barebone system based on Intel's upcoming enthusiast X38 chipset. As you can see from the sign above, the model on this new Shuttle system will be the SX38P3 Deluxe. Next to the SX38P3 are pictures of a G33 based Shuttle system and a P35 based Shuttle system, the G33 named the SG33P3 and the P35 named SP35P3 Deluxe. We'll stop by their both tomorrow and see if any of these new systems are on display. Expect these systems to be announced on June 7th when Shuttle has their official Computex press conference.
