Another big player at Computex - ASUS. Broad range of products - from servers to PDAs, and from wireless networking to motherboards. Going for a complete solution, ASUS grows from strength to strength each year. They have never failed to amaze us each year with their innovative products.
The Asus booth.
The new VIA KT400 board from Asus.
The new Asus A7V8X will support Serial ATA devices through the Silicon Image Serial ATA controller.
For the Pentium 4 platform, there's the P4S8X which is based on the latest SiS 648 chipset with the SiS 963 southbridge.
The Asus A7N8X based on the new NVIDIA Crush 18G chipset.
If you want powerful audio on the A7N8X, you will have to get this ACR card to support the NVIDIA SoundStorm.
The NVIDIA Soundstorm front panel and remote controller. The front panel connects directly to the ACR card.
Asus demonstrated the Serial ATA at their booth.
The new Asus CRW-4824A CD-RW writer that writes at an amazing 48x on CD-R discs and 24x on CD-RW discs.
Asus had a broad range of notebooks on display. The new L3 series of Pentium 4-based notebooks caught our attention.
Asus promoting overclocking? Yup... they overclocked a Pentium 4 2.4GHz processor all the way up to 3.2GHz on their P4B533 motherboard.
Asus PDAs were also on display. These babies are ready for mass production.
The V8460 Ultra/Deluxe graphics card had a facelift with a new and meaner looking heatsink.
For gamers, they can take a break playing one of their demos at the booth. Jackie just couldn't resist trying out one of the games there.
