We figured it would only be a matter of time before this happened, and now that touch panels are really taking off, Albatron is looking to take advantage of a huge market opportunity. Today, the only (easy) way to enjoy a touch experience is to totally upgrade your machine; you either have to buy a new touch-ready all-in-one PC, a new touch-ready notebook or a new touch-ready LCD. Basically, you're looking at a new investment in hardware at the very least. But Albatron has a solution that's far cheaper than any of those other options. The EM215 is expected to launch in a few weeks at Computex in Taiwan, with this External Multi-Touch Module allowing consumers to make their existing monitor touch-ready... Read more...
Albatron 42" Optical Touch Monitor Bring Amazing Touch Experience Albatron Technology recently released 42-inch Albatron Optical Touch Monitor (OTM).

Here's a company we haven't heard from in what feels like ages: Albatron. Said outfit has just announced its newest mainboard, the K3780E. As with most motherboards, this one also possesses a not-exactly-memorable name, and while the full press release reads more like broken English than anything else, here's what we've made out. The board supports AMD processors and features an AMD 780E North Bridge, built-in ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics, hardware decoding, an AMD SB710 south bridge, four SATA II inputs and a single ATA 100 channel. The company assures us that it'll slip inside any Mini-ITX case, making it a good fit for media PCs and the like. There's also a few PCI-E 2.0 slots, an HDMI port,... Read more...
Albatron Optical Touch Monitor on course with Multi-Touch Mania! “Optical Touch” brings huge advantages compared to traditional touch monitors. Albatron Technology has announced its new Optical Touch Monitor (OTM), on course with a new era of Multi Touch Panel monitors. At NVISION ’08, multi-touch panels were lauded by Jen-Hsun Huang in his keynote speech as being one of the most exciting emerging technologies. Multi-Touch was demonstrated last year by Bill Gates using beta versions of Windows 7. And who could forget Tom Cruise dragging, wiping, and tapping away in Spielberg’s Sci-Fi classic, Minority Report. Introduced as a development version at the most recent Computex, the Albatron OTM has... Read more...

The CeBIT 2008 show is Germany's version of our CES, or Taiwan's Computex, only with a little wienerschnitzel thrown around and some Helles to wash it down; you get the idea.  As with many shows like these, lots of inside info is released and as yet announced products are often shown behind closed doors and sometimes even openly with a pause and a "oops" afterwards as if to say, they really didn't mean to do that.  In that vein this morning, Albatron steps up and tips their skirt in our general direction with this...    Though typically we would offer that we can neither confirm nor deny that these are in fact pictures of Albatron's...

Perhaps the only Mini-ITX AM2 motherboard on the planet at this time, the KI960-AM2 has a lot going for it other than a name that sounds like some top-secret military hardware. The board seems to have almost everything one could reasonably expect in such a small form factor and then some. Here's what Charlie from theinquirer.com had to say: "Albatron had the best mobo that I saw at CeBIT, bar none. It is called the KI960-AM2, a mini-ITX full featured AMD690 based AM2 board. There is nothing else like it here. In case you can't tell from the ratio of the socket to the entire board, this is either the largest AM2 socket you have ever seen... Read more...

You've seen 512MB on the cream of the crop graphics cards, but how about on a GeForce 6600? Well Albatron has made one, but as we've seen in reviews such as the 128MB Radeon 9800 Pro vs the 256MB Radeon 9800 Pro, more ram doesn't always give a large boost in performance. Will the extra memory help Albatron's 6600 compete against the GeForce 6600GT? "That's right, 512 MB of onboard memory on a midrange product! To accomplish this, Albatron shifted from the very familiar DDR3 graphics memory to DDR2. The core and memory speeds have also been dropped down from the GeForce 6600 GT. The big question that remains is can a product with half a gig of... Read more...
Albatron nForce4 K8SLI @ Bjorn3D: "Sometimes us reviewer tend to forget that not everyone have the money to buy one of the latest and fastest cards available. Instead of a GeForce 7800GT or GeForce 7800GTX many instead have opted for cheaper, but yet capable, GeForce 6600GT. But what if you have one of those and want to in a cheap way increase the graphics performance? NVIDIA has the solution with SLI. Pop in a second card and in theory get double the performance. Today I am looking at one of the cheaper SLI-capable motherboards on the market, the K8SLI from Albatron.

Good afternoon folks! Looking for something interesting to read? How about the 7800GT reportedly having 20 pipes. Need more? There's a good chance ATI's R520 will be available for purchase at it's launch date. Still not enough? Well, we've got plenty more below! Albatron K8SLI Review @ AMD Zone "While overclockers may want to steer clear with only an average feature set those looking to mod, or just wanting some more case real estate for watercooling can take advantage of the smaller depth. You won't find a board packed with extras, or high end hardware, or extra SATA ports. The bottom line is that the Albatron K8SLI is an interesting implementation of the nForce 4 SLI with a low cost, and... Read more...

Sunbeam 20 in 1 Superior Panel Review @ 3DXtreme "We have digital cameras and other devices that use all kinds of media cards, not to mention those that use USB, Firewire or even SATA connections. To fulfill these needs companies have come up with fan controllers, I/O panels, card readers, and temperature displaying LCD screens. But what about the limited amount of real estate on the front of your case? If you have all these items and a standard mid-tower case, there's no room left for your drives. How are you supposed to make that work? That's where Sunbeam... Read more...

Good evening folks :) Tonight we have a roundup of motherboards based on the VIA K8T800 Pro chipset, a look at the Dell Axim X50v Pocket PC which comes with a 624MHz CPU, and a couple other items. I decided to do some spring cleaning today, so now I'm off to organize all my hardware junk and figure out if it should go in a rig, or be sold on ebay. Good night.

While we have already taken a look or two at NVIDIA's current mainstream offering, the GeForce 6600, in the past, today we've got a completely new take on this card with Albatron's PC6600U Trinity Series.  While the basic technology behind the PC6600U remains largely the same as past cards, the core clock and memory speeds have been raised substantially, and the cooling system utilized on the PC6600U is completely different from what has been used in the past.  Albatron's new cooling apparatus is designed to cope with this card's higher than normal clock speeds, while keeping temperatures in check.  It does this by quickly removing heat from the front of the card using heatpipes,...
