DigiTimes claims Taiwanese motherboard makers are less active at this year's edition of Computex due to Intel's decision to delay the Skylake platform to after mid-August 2015. As a result, motherboard makers are showcasing their upcoming 100 series motherboards at the show but aren't hosting large launching conferences to promote the products as the official launch is still over two months away from us.
And while the motherboard makers can show their 100-series products, they aren't allowed to reveal any specifications or details during the show.Because of the delay, some motherboard players have reduced the scale of decoration for their booths. Motherboard players will not be able to unveil any specification or detail about the 100 series or Skylake processors during the show.
However, for some motherboard players such as Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology, they will turn to focus on showcasing their new gaming notebooks, tablets and wearable devices.
The notebook version of Skylake is expected to arrive in Q4 2015 and Intel has reportedly included USB 3.1 with Type-C connector as one of the specifications for its preferential design.
