Computex Taipei Here We Come
June 3, 2006 2:29 PM
Excited for the world's greatest computer trade show? We are too!
Even though I end up in Taiwan every few months or so, going back during the Computex Taipei tradeshow is always one of my favorite trips. Taipei is just far enough out of the way that the only people who actually make it to the show are the manufacturers and higher ups in the industry. The part that has always bothered me about CES, COMDEX and CeBIT (at least from a media perspective) is that those shows are public showcases and overcrowded. While there are a lot of locals at Computex, it’s a lot easier to manage the crowd and it doesn't hurt being a foot taller than everyone in the exhibition hall. Of course, the real reason I love Computex is the in depth information I get from the engineers and product managers that don't typically make it out of Taiwan for other trade shows.
On 6/4 Intel will lift the general embargo on
, followed by the
965 platform launch on 6/7
should be all over the show, and
will be there to cover that.
ATI will announce its general plans for physics processing using multiple video cards, and we'll probably see some
demos as well. There are no plans for ATI to announce
RV570 and RV560
, ATI's next generation mid-range components, but we should see some demos behind closed doors.
AMD will have a few working demonstrations of
in partner booths, and we're going to do our best to try to snag a few for benchmarking. Expect to see lots of details on Socket F (
slated for July 11th launch
), and probably some
tidbits on 4x4
NVIDIA will make some physics announcements at the show, along with details about
nForce Pro for Socket F
. Some partners are already announcing
, but we are more interested in the
. If we're lucky, we might snag a picture of G80 here or there. Finally, NVIDIA is expected to launch
GeForce 7950GX2 on 6/6
As 2003 and 2004 were the years of SFF PCs, 2006 and 2007 will definitely focus on UMPC and PMP devices.
ASUS is expected to announce more ultra portables
, and of course we will be covering the HTC announcement for the upcoming Hermes (and beyond). Acer and BenQ both have plans for more ultra portables and will almost certainly make a few announcements too.
will also be everywhere.
