When Microsoft announced its tablet strategy with the Windows RT, many thought that Microsoft will change its pricing model for OEMs too, signaling a shift in strategy. Reality is however, vastly different with Microsoft requesting as much money as OEM version of the Windows 7 Home Premium.
Computex Taipei might be over already but we still have a couple of stories from there to fill. Here we take a look at some of the Opteron and Trinity APU FM2 motherboards and Radeon 7000 series GPUs, presented to you by the fabulous AMD booth girls.
While the volumes aren't high, most vendors had enough to show at least a sample of GTX680 – and occasionally a GTX690 – on their booths, while AMD gunned for higher clock revisions and more memory.
NVIDIA showed off some of their Tegra 3 tablets, smartphones and Kepler GPUs at their Nangang Computex booth. Why were we so impressed?
Every year at Computex Taipei, certain vendors have this annoying practice of slipping in new products throughout the 5-day event, unannounced of course, hence the need for us journos to re-visit the show halls to see what we've left out. ASUS previously showed off the ThunderboltEX expansion card for select Z77/H77 motherboards and potential support
In one of the more intriguing discoveries during a relatively lackluster Computex, our counterparts at Chinese VR-Zone spotted an interesting feature on the upcoming ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z and other refreshed AMD AM3+ motherboards – Intel Thunderbolt support!
Midway through the Computex, and dozens of ultrathins – including AMD and ARM based ones, some thoughts come to our minds…
Its easy for us journos to get distracted when we're trying to scour the ground at Computex for news…
This year, G.Skill showed off their record breaking TridentX DDR3 modules and Sandforce SF-2281 based Phoenix III SSDs alongside an LN2 overclocking demostration graced by representatives from the top motherboard makers. We took a look at some of the exhibits…
Our ever vigilant counterparts at Chinese VR-Zone spotted a rather interesting gaming laptop SKU from MSI filled with AMD hardware – the GX60 is powered by a top of the line Radeon HD 7970M and a Trinity A10-4600M APU. Is it a marriage made in heaven?
During the ASUS Computex press conference last Monday, the world got to see the company's cloud strategy and upcoming Transformer tablet convertibles. What about the other models at the event?
Lenovo revealed a new Windows 8 tablet, and demonstrated it to Engadget at Computex today.
Remember the Gigabyte Z77X-UP7 that we reported yesterday which had 32-phase power? ASUS has one-upped its fiercest rival with a 40-phase motherboard, albeit still a non-production but working prototype codenamed Wolverine.
Like two years ago, also during Computex, when MSI showed Futuremark's 3DMark 11 Deep Sea Demo, visitors to the popular Taiwanese AIB maker's booth can catch a short demo loop of the upcoming 3DMark for Windows 8 running on a high end system equipped with a pair of GTX 680 Lightning in SLi.
Its raining GPUs here at Computex Taipei, and the latest offering revealed by ASUS's Republic of Gamers team after their HD 7970 Matrix is the dual Nvidia Kepler GK104 based MARS III, featuring an unprecedented 8GB of GDDR5 memory and a triple-fan dual slot cooler.
Hot on the heels of their new BigBang MPower line of motherboards, MSI is showing off her overclocking oriented GTX 680 Lightning at their Nangang booth during this year's Computex Taipei.
MSI Showed off its brand new line of motherboards for overclockers, the Big Bang MPower. The lineup includes two models, the Z77 MPower (LGA1155, Z77 Express), and X79 MPower (LGA2011, X79 Express). The design-focus is backing the platform with a strong VRM, and adding a load of things to tinker with.
ASUS latest graphics card in its coveted Republic of Gamers series, is the ROG Matrix 7970, a high-end graphics card with a Radeon HD 7970 on steroids, with enough connectivity to drive 6-display Eyefinity.
The third and final addition to ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) Maximus V motherboard series is the Maximus V Extreme (M5E). ASUS reserved its launch to follow that of the Maximus V Formula and the already-launched Maximus V Gene, in what is a classic case of saving the best for the last.
ASUS has an enviable amount of engineering potential and resources. Often, the two come together, to create magical PC enthusiast hardware, such as its ROG MARS and ROG ARES series super high-end graphics cards. The next such creation is ZEUS, which is a shocking fusion between a socket LGA2011 motherboard, and a dual-GPU graphics card.
