"Every year the worlds' PC makers and PC media flock to Computex in Taipei Taiwan to see the bleeding edge of technology unleashed. Intel, AMD, nVidia and ATI usually time their new product releases to coincide with the massive tech trade show, so it's always an exciting adventure. This year Gigabyte, a Tier One motherboard manufacturer, showcased three important additions to the PC marketplace. The first and foremost was Intel's new socket 1156 "Lynnfield" processor platform, based on the soon-to-be-released Intel P55 Express chipset. The Intel P55 Express is notable for a couple reasons, not the least of which is its support of both ATI Crossfire and nVidia SLI! Finally, a mainstream motherboard which accommodates both multi-videocard options!
Computex 2009 takes place each year in Taipei Taiwan. This year Sparkle Computer Co., Ltd. sent PCSTATS a round of photos of its booth and several new products exhibited at the trade show including new nVidia ION based small form factor HTPC systems and the Calibre graphic cards series. Enjoy!
