Computex 2002 Coverage - Abit Editor's Night

Computex 2002 Coverage - Abit Editor's Night

As mentioned in our Day 4 coverage of Computex, last night Cameron and I, along with many other editors headed up to Abit HQ for Abit's "Editor's Night". The night was in the theme of the FIFA World Cup that is currently taking place in Korea and thus, soccer balls and posters were plastered everywhere - Even Abit staff were wearing Abit football jerseys. We were given a tour of Abit's R&D facilities, had the chance to chat with Abit engineers and then spent the rest of the night fragging each other in Jedi Knight 2 and Quake 3 Arena. Read on as Asher "Acid" Moses reveals exactly what we got up to at Abit HQ. | Jun 6, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 4

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 4

After three action-packed days, things have finally started to quieten down here at Computex. Our first three days were filled with press conferences, meetings, parties and then a good 4-5 hours each day has been spent on preparing our daily coverage. Most of this year's Computex announcements have been made by now and for the last two days of the show, Cameron and I will be wandering the show floor in search of some new and interesting products to show you. Today we visited Intel, Lian-Li, DFI, ABIT, Kingmax and nVidia, and boy do we have some interesting things to show you. We have information on the upcoming nForce II chipset, nVidia's next generation architecture - the NV30, Lian-Li's new aluminium case range and pictures of the first working ClawHammer sample. | Jun 5, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 3

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 3

Day 3 of Computex has been and gone, and what a day it was. Most of our day was spent in Hall 3 of Computex, which is populated mainly by motherboard manufacturers such as Shuttle, EPoX, MSI, Iwill, Asus, Gigabyte and many more. Many of these motherboard manufacturers were displaying Hammer solutions, KT400 solutions and even nForce solutions. We also got the chance to check out other neat stuff such as Serial ATA and new barebones systems from Shuttle and ASUS. Day 3 at Computex can be best described as "motherboard day" for TweakTown, and after it was all over, we were pretty impressed. | Jun 4, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

Computex 2002 Coverage - Kingmax Interview

Computex 2002 Coverage - Kingmax Interview

One of our scheduled meetings this year for Computex 2002 included an exclusive English media interview with Joe Liu, President of Kingmax Semiconductor. In our relatively short, but interesting, interview earlier today at the Kingmax booth from Hall 1 I ask Joe Liu about DDR-II, release dates of future memory products, whether or not they will eneter the VGA card business and if the Taiwanese company would support Intel's PC1066 standards which included how Intel "encouraged" Kingmax to produce PC1066 RDRAM. | Jun 3, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 2

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 2

Computex is certainly shaping up to be a very exciting event. In yesterday's coverage we brought you information about AMD's 8th generation processors (Opteron and ClawHammer) as well as detailed information about upcoming products from VIA. Yesterday's conferences left us barely any time to take a proper look at what the companies were displaying on the show floor. Today, however, our schedule was slightly more relaxed so we took the opportunity to head out onto the show floor. Whilst there we took a look at the latest gear from VIA, ALi, SiS, Apacer, AMD and Leadtek. | Jun 3, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

Computex 2002 Coverage - Day 1

It's summer in Taiwan and that can only mean one thing... Computex. Computex is regarded by many as one of the most interesting and exciting computer trade shows in the world and is the biggest computer trade show in Asia. Each year, thousands of people from all over the world come to Taipei, Taiwan in order to view first-hand the products and technologies they will be seeing over the following year and beyond. We are lucky enough to be attending the event and posting daily coverage straight from the show floor. Right now we present you with Day 1 coverage which includes annoucements from AMD and VIA press conferences. | Jun 2, 2002 11:00 pm CDT

ITExpo 2002 Coverage

ITExpo 2002 Coverage

Recently we had the chance to visit one of Australia's largest computer exhibitions, ITExpo. Unfortunately, being located in Australia means that our computer exhibitions don't get visited by the likes of Bill Gates or Craig Barret, and many of the products displayed are not ground breakingly new. Nevertheless, it is usually a great day out and there are always one or two surprises. Join Asher "Acid" Moses as he determines if ITExpo has got what it takes to compete with the likes of Taiwan's Computex and USA's COMDEX. | Mar 7, 2002 11:00 pm CST
