The LN2 demo rig is actually a prototype board called Sauternes which the ASUS R.O.G team has developed based on Intel 965P chipset. It is an improved version of Commando P965 board with an additional thermal module for better cooling. However, it won’t be going into mass production as it is just an experimental project
So far, we saw 2 live demos of the P35 boards today; one is from Foxconn and the other is from Gigabyte. Foxconn is running a P357AA-8EKRS2H board using OXCCO DDR-II 667 memories while Gigabyte is running a GA-P35T-DS3 board using Infineon DDR3 memories. Intel allows motherboard makers to display Bearlake boards during CeBIT but
Some interesting sightings over at ASUS booth where they literally drive a Lamborghini in to show the prestige of their Lamborghini notebooks. Check out our Pre-CeBIT coverage for more photos and details.
For the Part II of our Pre-CeBIT coverage, we bring you the memory makers, the cooler guys, the chassis/PSU guys, the graphics cards makers as well as some others. Watch out for our Day 1 CeBIT coverage tomorrow!
VR-Zone brings you a pre-CeBIT coverage before it is even officially opened. Check out what’s installed for you over at ASUS, ABIT, MSI, Gigabyte, Foxconn, ECS booths.
Intel is preparing to sample a 90-nm 128-Mbit phase change memory to customers in the first half of 2007. Mass production could begin before the end of 2007. The 128-Mbit had demonstrated … wait… that’s not what we’re talking about! Yes please, give me the REAL Phase Change RAMs!
NVIDIA DX10 offerings for the mainstream market are definitely not to be missed and we will be seeing them on display over at the CeBIT in 2 days time. NVIDIA is still right on schedule for G84 launch on April 17th thus beat ATi to deliver DX10 mainstream products. Now, the final core clock of

Intel has won approval to build a $ 2.5 billion, 12-inch wafer plant in northern China for CPU chip sets. The plant would use 90nm technology and produce 52,000 wafers a month at full capacity. The plan calls for the fab to be in the city of Dalian. Intel building a fab in China would
SanDisk broadened its solid state drive (SSD) product line for the portable computer market with the introduction of a 32GB, 2.5-inch SATA interface model, compatible with most mainstream notebook designs. Coming just two months after SanDisk introduced a 1.8-inch SSD for ultraportable notebooks, the 2.5-inch SSD is now available to PC manufacturers as a drop-in
According to X-bit, NVIDIA new SDK 10 which was released just last week includes CG profiles as Fragment50, Vertex50, Geometry50 which means it supports architecture micro-code profiles for Pixel Shaders 5.0, Vertex Shaders 5.0 and Geometry Shaders 5.0. The inclusion of the architecture micro-code inside a compiler indicates that NVIDIA foresees the arrival of Shader
VIA today introduced the 12cmx12cm VIA EPIA NX-series mainboard, the highest performance, most power efficient and feature-rich Nano-ITX platform ever.
