And now a report about ECS, a popular motherboard brand. In its booth you can see add-in cards for various processors, SIMA, etc.
Let´s start with solutions new for the company though. This one is a multimedia player that plays a lots of video and audio formats.
And that´s some original notebook cover design.
And two more models.
A 910-based motherboard. Local Chinese OEM market only.
A top-end model on ATI chipset. Supports 2 x PCI-E x16 and CrossFire.
And some BTX solutions.
Two boards on integrated 915 chipset also supporting discrete graphics.
At Computex 2005 XGI Technology showcases new Volari 8300 (XG47) graphics cards.
These entry-level desktop and mobile solutions have native PCI-Express interface, support 64-bit DRAM and eXtreme Cache technology (uses PC RAM for frame buffer needs), DirectX 9.0, Shader Model 2 and TV encoding. Cards have DVI, D-Sub, HDTV and S-Video outputs. For notebooks Volari 8300 will be packaged into MXM type 1 form-factor.
The new GPU will be made using 0.13µ process. Dell and Toshiba already decided to use these solutions in their notebooks.

Since solutions made by AMD, Intel, ATI and NVIDIA are used in a majority of products showcased at Computex 2005 anyway, their own booths were dedicated to some other things.
AMD, instead of showcasing recently announced Athlon 64 X2, brought along a racing car, perhaps, to underline the power of its processors and also to remind everyone about its sponsorship of F1 Ferrari.
The booth of Intel doesn´t amaze with size or beauty, but it´s location is strategically perfect noone ever can miss it.
Iwill introduces various servers on AMD processors.
InnoVision, besides graphics cards, showcases ready liquid-cooled systems.
And this bike belongs to ATI. The booth is not large, but, as you can see, very popular ;).
Computex 2005, focused on duality of everything, continues. This time we´ll please you with solutions from Biostar. First, there are PCI-E x16 (native) and AGP (bridged) solutions on NVIDIA chipsets. This one bases on nForce 4 Standart:
And this on nForce 4 Ultra:
And these are Intel-based boards with full support for two PCI-E x16 slots. Multi-monitor output is fine, but who knows, perhaps, CrossFire will work as well? It´s even more interesting as not only the fresh 945 features dual graphics support...
...but the older 915PL does as well.
And this "cube" is codenamed Crush 51. It features 6200ÒÑ graphics, costs $530 and will arrive only after chipset shipments are launched.
