Computex 2007: The Last of Its Kind

FSB1333 Processors For Socket 775

The P35 chipset is ready for Intel’s new CPU generation, which will be announced at Computex : Core 2 Duo E6850, E6750 (2.66 GHz) and E6650 (2.33 GHz). And there will also be a Core 2 Extreme edition processor running at FSB1333 and 3.0 GHz clock speed.

Corsair : DDR3-2000 RAM In The Near Future

It sounds too good to be true, and I believe that it will still be a few months until DDR3-2000 reaches the market in reasonable quantities and at a price that is anywhere close to affordable. Be that as it may, Corsair will be showing off a DDR3-2000 version of its uber product line called the Dominator in its hospitality suite of the Grand Hyatt hotel.

PQI : 256 GB Flash Hard Drives

TG Daily’s Humphrey Cheung already wrote a short story on this : PQI will showcase a flash-based hard drive, which beats all capacities that have been announced so far : 256 GB capacity in a 2.5" form factor. It not only provides better throughput than mechanical 5,400 RPM hard drives - 60 MB/s as opposed to Western Digital’s 250 GB Scorpio WD2500BEVS reaching 55 MB/s, while others max out at 45 MB/s - it also almost eliminates access time. Finally, the 256 GB capacity is slightly more than conventional 2.5" hard drives can offer (250 GB). It might be available fairly soon, but I would bet that you will have to spend as much money on this drive as others would spend on a whole computer.

Computex Will Be Relocated

Computex 2008 will not be at the familiar location, because the show has been growing continuously. The new site will be a new exhibition center in the Nangang business part, just to the southeast of the city.

Next year’s Computex will not be in the Sinyi district ; it will move to the Nangang area. By next year, the new HSR train will stop there as well.
