Sandy Bridge, Color-Coded PSUs, And SSDs

Computex 2010 Roundup: Coverage From The Show Floor
By , Dmitry Chekanov

We certainly weren't surprised to see some manufacturers showing off LGA 1155-based motherboards, which will support Intel's upcoming Sandy Bridge processors. In the photo above, you can see ECS' P67H2-A2. Believe it or not, Intel will not support USB 3.0 on its upcoming platform (here, ECS had to use the Etron Technology USB 3.0 controller). But no additional details are officially available.

A-Data was showing off new PSUs with "Eye of Horus" colored LED lighting, which changes tone based on output power load. If the output power level is low (0-50%), the PSU shines with a green color. Blue color corresponds to 50-100% load, and red equals more than 100% load.

At the Memoright booth we saw an interesting demonstration. To the left is an SSD in ice. To the right is an SSD in hot water. Both are working. -40 degrees C and +85 degrees C. Nice.
