“Nvidia showed off new Ion netbook and nettop designs this year, plus an entirely new GeForce architecture—Fermi— designed for triple headed machines and 3D displays. Nvidia’s Tegra line of embedded chipsets is also growing rapidly through OEM adoption, most notably in the Boxee Box by D-Link."
"Without a doubt, the main focus of MSI's display this year was on their motherboards. Our MSI rep was very passionate about their goals for the US market with their two flagship boards leading the way, Big Bang Fuzion and Big Bang Trinergy. He emphasized the need for MSI to focus on hardware as this category is slowly taking a backseat to more general consumer electronics among the buying public, especially in the US."
The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas gets the year going in the right direction for everyone in the high tech industry. It allows manufacturers to showcase their current products to thousands of media outlets, as well as give a sneak peak at impending launches all the while creating buzz and excitement among consumers. And yeah, It's not bad for a few thousand press folks like us as well.
Although we already showed you several noteworthy products in our various CES Showcase, there's still a bit more to cover. Companies tend to go all-in during CES and show us more exciting hardware than we can analyze in just one or two articles. Here's a wrap up to our CES 2010 coverage that includes spotlights on Intel, Asus, Gigabyte, EVGA, MSI, Dell, OCZ, CyberPower, Toshiba, Sony and more.
"On day two of CES, we had a chance to head over to the Wynn hotel to have a look at EVGA's suite. As usual, EVGA had a strong, practical focus for their product line this year. When we spoke with Jacob Freeman, he made it clear that EVGA tries very hard to provide users with useful features such as voltage readout points and onboard power buttons, rather than gimmicks and frills like shiny lights."
