CeBIT 2014: A Quick Tour

Tradeshow & OC events by leeghoofd @ 2014-03-13

The Hannover Messe is getting less and less interesting for hardware enthusiasts as myself. Almost all the interesting vendors were located this edition at the Planet Resellers booth; selling is the name of the game, not just show your brand new lineup to the masses. Some big names didn't even bother to prepare a booth for the CeBIT 2014 tradeshow: Gigabyte was not present at all. Neither was ASUS, besides a small stand with professional Laptops. The Media usually got invited into small press meeting rooms to get an insight in upcoming products; definitely not the way to go, but the current outcome is the result of a small and steady decline in interest from the hardware manufacturers. Main focus remains at CES in Las Vegas and Computex in Taipei. In this last article we are looking at some great products from eVGA, Enermax and Bloody Inc; for MSI and Fractal we direct you to the two CeBIT specials.

ASrock had their latest additions to the Killer series at their booth. The name is derived from the integration of the Killer NIC for low latency gaming.  Upcoming motherboards were shown at the booth, though no pictures nor technical details were provided. ASRock confirmed to be ready when Intel sets the official NDA date...





Showstopper was the ASRock gaming barebone, the M8, sporting an esthetically brilliant design. Just add your favorite Intel Haswell CPU, RAMs, GPU and storage devices and be ready to game !!
