Items tagged with Computex

I spy with my little eye something that doesn't belong!  Here's a clue, it's big, square, and green.  Yep, you guessed it.  It's the oddly placed, lone AMD umbrella flanked by dozens of Intel umbrellas outside of an eatery at this year's Computex... Now if that image isn't reminiscent of AMD's current situation with Intel I don't know what is. :)  This had to be such a funny thing to see for all of the hardcore geeks out in Taipei this past week....

While inspecting Hall 2 today, we saw Gigabyte’s cartoon mascot and decided to take another walk through their booth, this time focusing on their new, non-motherboard products.       We immediately noticed that Gigabyte was showing off some new processor heatsink fan designs. Most interesting of which is named the Gigabyte Volar.  As you can see from the pictures, the heatsink is tilted at a 45 degree angle, so that the exhaust air can more easily exit the system as well as cool the motherboard MOSFETs in the process.       We then moved on to Gigabyte’s two new power supplies, the Thor 1200W...

Last night in our Pre-Computex coverage, we saw that ASUS had some interesting looking displays set up at the front of their booth, but they were covered up and we weren’t able to take a close look at what was underneath.   Today, we were able to dig a little deeper into ASUS' booth, however, and hiding in one display was their new Crosslinx-enabled Republic of Gamers motherboards. Crosslinx is going to be featured on a couple of P35-based motherboards to enhance their PCI Express lane configurations for optimal performance in a multi-GPU configuration.                    At the heart...

Yesterday we ran through the Taipei convention center to see how construction of the booths for this year’s Computex trade show were progressing. When we walked by Shuttle’s booth in hall 2 of the convention center, we saw pictures of three un-announced barebone small form factor systems, the X38 based SX38P3 Deluxe, the G33 based SG33P3, and the P35 based SP35P3 Deluxe. Although the show is still one day away, we came back to the Shuttle booth and were able to see all three of these new systems.         The first system we looked at was the SX38P3 Deluxe, Shuttle’s new flagship barebone system. The SX38P3 will replace the SD37PV2 as the Shuttle’s... Read more...
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...

Even though Computex 2006 has ended, we're still getting some good coverage of the event. The Tech Zone reports on what Shuttle and Tyan brought to the party, with some good pictures of Shuttle's new XPC products. "Shuttle used Computex to launch 4 new XPC products to its range of XPC computer systems. They range from an ultra small form factor system to a new media center PC. Tyan shows off their new personal super computer." Shuttle's XPC Media Center 2000 is one nice looking piece of hardware. It's equipped with a GeForce 7600 GS, uses Intel Viiv, and sports Windows XP MCE.... Read more...
We stayed stateside and didn't attend Computex this year, but the Tech Report did such a good job summarizing the best of Computex 2006, that it feels like we just got home.  It's obvious Geoff was a busy man out in Taipei. "COMPUTEX IS A SPECTACLE like no other. An ocean away, in a land where most motherboards and graphics cards are born, it's almost like being dropped into the belly of the beast. The show has a different vibe than most North American trade shows, too. While the Consumer Electronics Show, Intel Developer Forum, and E3 cater to the press, Computex is mostly an event for buyers. People go to do business, and while... Read more...
Continuing with the coverage of Computex 2006, we have some more great pictures of the event thanks to PC Perspective. One eye catching piece of hardware is Thermaltake's monster case which can house two whole computers. As if that wasn't enough, the case also comes with a touch-screen LCD monitor which can be connected to one of the systems inside the case. "PC Perspective has published an article this morning that takes a look at what new cases, cooling and power products were on display from vendors like Thermaltake, Cooler Master and Silverstone. There are more than a few very unique system designs and products on display... Read more...
More Computex coverage is available thanks to the folks over at Hardware Zone. From ABIT to Shuttle, there's more hardware than you can shake a stick at(really, that's a lot of hardware). "In part 6 of Hardware Zone's annual Computex Taipei coverage, we bring you goodies from ABIT, AMD, Apacer, ASRock, E-TEN, HIS, Kingmax, Palit, KYE (or otherwise known as the brand Genius), Leadtek, Shuttle and Thecus" One eye catching board on display is the Fatal1ty FP-A9D.

Hardware Zone has more coverage of the event, including updates from MSI, GECUBE, Foxconn, ASUS, and plenty more. Day 3, Day 4. "Not only is Foxconn poised to move into the high-end market with enthusiast motherboards and graphics cards, getting involved with global gaming circles is also part of their new 'EnterGaming Evolution' focus. We guessed that drowning out their product displays must also be a tactic to get us focused on them gaming girls too."  ... Read more...
Well the event has finally kicked off, and we're looking forward to seeing what this year's Computex has to offer. NGOHQ has some good coverage of the first day, a few gadgets and plenty of booth babes. "The people are friendly, and Computex has finally started today. Just in time, as our patience has finally reached its limit. Many looked forward to it, and others worked really hard to make it happen. Computex is not just about hardware and technology, its also about meeting people, and if your lucky, attending parties. In our area, we know a lot of people, and have met friends from the internet that we have been working with for years."... Read more...
As the title implies, TweakTown has a quick introduction to this year's Computex 2006 show in Taipei. From Intel to ATI, there should be some good hardware to get excited about this year. "For us, as an PC enthusiast consumer based computer website, we get excited about Computex because it is here we usually see a lot of cool new products which we can spend our pay checks on in the following months. This year is shaping up to be an interesting show which seems likely to be dominated by Intel and nVidia. AMD and ATI will be showing some interesting new products but with Intel and their new Conroe CPU and accompanying chipsets and... Read more...

Good morning folks!  Long time no see.  I apologize for my extended absence.  Can you believe that was the longest I've been away from HotHardware for over 6 years!  But I have a good excuse - I was on my Honeymoon!  Adrienne and I tied the not on May 14, 2005 and then we hopped on a plane for a couple of weeks in Antigua.  What a great experience.  Sun, sand, sea, another "S" word, and lots of relaxation.  Right now though, it's time to get back in the saddle and bare down for some work.  To be honest, I missed it!

It's feeling like the calm before the storm here around the HH Northeast labs.  There is an onslaught of new gear on its way to us and a few of very large OEMs preparing for some major launches in the next few weeks.  If you take a look around at some of the Computex coverage on the web (I'll provide a link or two for you in the news here as well), you'll get an idea what's on deck in the HH Lab.  New Alderwood, Canterwood, DDR2 and PCI Express products abound people.  Hardware goodness and plenty of it, you've got to love that.  We'll be stressed on deadlines here in the next few weeks but I wouldn't have it any other way.  Morning juice coming at ya here..  Computex...
