Comutex Day 0

Post by Apoptosis » Mon May 31, 2004 3:28 pm

Well the day before the show has come and gone, but not before we walked around and played with some systems!

The first thing to note is the World's largest building across the street!

Image

Had some free time to go shopping in Taiwan today so we went to a local PC store and saw some interesting game/VCD bundles. The first beind a 9600SE with CS.

Image

While these seem to be VCD's that you uh.. just watch?

Image

We happened to check out the BIOS on an LGA775 board and under the CPU settings it had "full thurst". Maybe my mind is in the gutter from the above pick, but I thought that it was funny so here is a pic of the BIOS.

Image

The MSI booth had these cute lil fellows dancing around. They use bluetooth technology to be user controled and are called "robosapian".

Image

The last shot I have for today is one of Corsair's new DDR2 memory module. They are coming out with Platinum Pro modules. This is the first time I have seen one or heard about that so here is a picture. It looks sweet! The also have more LED's and they are brighter. So improvements have been made to Corsair's PRO memory.

Image

That is it for today! The show opens tomorrow and I'm off to sleep off my jet lag! Enjoy and hope you liked these pre-show pictures. Comments are welcomed.

Hey, nice place to be!

I read on a Hungarian site that some guys from a local review site are there too! :) If you see "Prohardver" guys, give them a "Hello" :)

Hope you see a lot of good stuff over there - and even bring some! :D

I'm actually starting to worry after seeing all of those new heatsinks you pictured. It seems like the temp issure is going to get worse, not better as we go along. Maybe the days of air cooling are coming to a close. Right now I'm on water, and I'm moving to improve and experiment with that, no more air for me.
