Adata RAM :
Gigabyte stepped away from Kingston for this event. When you are going for top scores, Hyper rams are still the only way to go. Only Adata wanted to provide Hyper kits. The +1866 C8 kit was used here. Many were able to push these near and over the 1000Mhz barrier with C7 or tighter timings. (I won't tell you the volts for Matoses set.. but it was over 1.95 volts !)
Adata got a nice stand setup, though I could hardly catch the representative. Their stand was always pretty crowded when I visited it.
The Gaming series got a nice 2200mhz C9 kit in the lineup, the Plus series even a 2200 C8 kit (this is close to Corsairs GTX2 specs)
The boothbabe was very occupied with it's own version of the wheel of fortune. Lots of stuff to win !Seagate :
Seagate was showcasing their big Momentus XT Hybrid SSD drive with HDD capacity. A whopping 250-500GB is huge for an SSD and also amasingly expensive. This hybrid solution could make laptops so much more snappier at a more affordable price level. A rotating speed of 7200RPM, 32MB of onboard cache makes Seagate claim that this hybrid solution is 80% percent faster than conventional rotating HD's. Only the exact retail price was unknown.
The 3.5 inch 2TB Barracuda XT offers more than enough storage. But with 64MB of cache and operating at 7200RPM it will still be pretty performant. The S-ATA 3.0 technology leaves me still a bit sceptical.
For the Go Flex Range
I'll rather link you up to the website. There's too much stuff to go through would take a whole page to tell it allEnvision :
To be honest I never heard of Envision
, before. Based in Fremont California, Envision has been producing displays for over 25 years. The 24 inch gaming series monitor has been chosen to be used as display at the GOOC 2010 event.
At the booth I was told Envision is now targeting the European market, this by joining forces with Gigabyte themselves. Let's hope we can get a sample to test it's display performance.
