NVIDIA and Corsair
We also stopped by NVIDIA’s and Corsair’s booths on our trek around the show floor...
NVIDIA had a few cool products on display in their booth including a couple of DX10-enabled notebooks powered by GeForce 8600 GPUs. Also on display in the booth were a GeForce 8800 Ultra powered system in a custom plexi-glass cube case running Bioshock alongside another system labeled “PCI Express Gen 2”. The PCI Express Gen 2 machine was playing the HD “A Plush Life” short movie on a current generation Quadro graphics card. Sorry, no next-gen PCIe 2.0 compliant GPU to show you just yet.
Corsair’s booth was chock full of products ranging from water-cooling kits to power supplies. Nautilus 500s liquid coolers were used to cool a couple of demo machines. One was looping 3DMark06, but the other was used to showcase the overclocking potential of Corsair’s current flagship TWIN3X2048-1800C7DF DDR3 memory kit which was running at 970MHz (1940MHz DDR) with 7-7-7 timings. Of course a slew of memory kits were on display in Corsair’s both as well.
There’s a lot more to come from this year’s IDF. Stay tuned to HotHardware for some mobility news a little later today. We may even have a couple of surprises to share as well.
