Icon17 Computex Day 0/1 Coverage

COMPUTEX Taipei, or Taipei International Information Technology Show is held in Taipei annually since 1981. It is the largest computer expo on the asian continent, with a constant growth every year. We took a quick look at behind the scenes to see a lot of construction work going on, even on the eve before the show.

- MadBox and 6iE.CR are fighting against jetlag, after a short shower they walked around waiting for Computex. Taipei is a beautiful city full of ancient buildings, Computex starts tomorrow, you will see many cool news from MadBoxPC. We have some cool pictures from Taipei taken by them.

We’ve got some more pre-show coverage from Computex to share with you. We’ve got more details regarding Shuttle’s upcoming Intel-based XPCs, pics and info regarding X38-based motherboards from Abit, DFI, and Gigabyte, and a number of other pics from booths still under construction. You’ll especially like a couple of the pics from XFX. Come on by and check ‘em out… oards

Over the course of the meetings, we’ve seen quite a few things. Obviously Intel’s recently announced P35 Bearlake chipset was a feature, but more interestingly we got to see early revisions of boards based on the replacement for the ageing 975X chipset: the X38 Express chipset, which is set for release sometime in September. In addition, we also had a first look at AMD’s first enthusiast chipset: RD790, which comes complete with support for the company’s upcoming Phenom processors. Let’s have a look at what each of the manufacturers showed us

We arrived a day early for Computex 2007 and were able to roam the hallways and meet with a few suppliers before the actual show starts today. This year's show will not have the same pizzazz as last year when the talk of the town was Core 2 Duo and AMD's purchase of ATI. Of course, that does not mean there will be a lack of new products, ideas, or hopes and dreams by the various manufacturers of PC centric products.

Hmm, so X38 will still support DDR2, interesting... For being a hotter running chipset, that is not nearly as much chipset/VRM cooling on the X38 DQ6 as with the P35 DQ6. If the latter is ~$260 I'm going to hate to see the price on the X38 version...
