CeBIT 2007. Corsair

At the booth of Corsair our reporter could see a lot of interesting exhibits as well. It's clear that everything here focuses on the performance. For starters, here's a "fan" of top DOMINATOR modules and their AIRFLOW active cooling:

On the photo below you can see a machine with 2GB DOMINATOR PC2-10000 modules (TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF), which are overclocked to 1300 MHz (PC2-10400) at 5-5-5-18-2T timings and 2.5V voltage. The machine also features eVGA 122-CK-NF68 (NVIDIA nForce 680i) motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 processor overclock to 3.03 GHz, a couple of NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS cards in the SLI mode, and a 150GB Western Digital Raptor HDD. The Silverstone TJ09 enclosure also contains Corsair's HX620W PSU, Nautilus 500 liquid cooling and AIRFLOW fan:

A similar machine featuring 4GB of RAM - 2 x TWIN2x2048-8888C4DF. 4-4-4-12-2T timings, 2.5 voltage:

Corsair also showcases DDR3 samples - 2 x 1GB modules (CM3X1024-8500C6) in an Intel P35 (Bearlake) based machine:



And this memory is designed for Apple's notebooks - 1GB and 2GB PC2-5300 (DDR2-667) modules:

Below you can see an ultra-protected SURVIVOR flash drive. If you are into diving, you can take it along down to the 120-meter depth. 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB capacities will be available:

And this photo shows a tough one - a hardware-protected flash drive. The only way to use it is to enter the right code and connect the drive to PC within 20 seconds:

CeBIT 2007. ASUS, Part 2: Motherboards, AquaTank, Monitors, And... Lamborghini Murcielago

As we have already mentioned in the first part of our visit to the booth of ASUS, the company showcases a lot of interesting exhibits at CeBIT 2007... including the Lamborghini Murcielago, which obviously is to attract attention to the booth even from far away.

Now let's continue the tour.

The ASUS Commando motherboard with integrated SupremeFX Audio Card + AD1988B+DTS. It bases on the Intel Ð965 chipset, supports Intel Core 2 Duo / Extreme (1066 MHz FSB, LGA775), DDR2-800; features IEE1394a, 2 x Gigabit LAN, SATA-II. This one can also work with 1333 MHz FSB.

There's also the Bearlake (P35) based ASUS P5K WS supporting Intel Core 2 Duo / Extreme (LGA775), 1333 MHz FSB and DDR2-800. It features the Bearlake P + ICH9R core logic. Similar to ASUS Commando it offers SATA-II, 2 x Gigabit LAN, 8-channel HDA.

At the booth you can also see ASUS AquaTank.



This couple of a well-overclocked GeForce 8800 GTX and a liquid-cooling unit is installed into the ASUS P5Â Deluxe motherboard with Intel Core 2 Quad processor.

On the photo above you can see company's new monitor with sensor controls and Power Bass Audio System.

You can adjust volume simply by moving your finger to the left or right along the sensor pad.



This new series of ASUS monitors isn't afraid of scratches, shocks and diffuses light better. The series consists of three models, including the 19" VW192G that offers 1440x900 resolution, 320 nit brightness, 800:1 contrast ratio, 160 viewing angles and 5ms GTG response.

CeBIT 2007. ECS: AMD-Based Products

Though ECS showcases thrice as fewer motherboards for AMD processors, they are also interesting to look at.

The KA3 MVP based on the AMD 580X CrossFire supports AMD AM2 Athlon 64FX and Athlon 64 X2 processors, HyperTransport, CrossFire, and S.D.G.E. Its features include SATA II 3Gbps RAID, Gigabit LAN, 8-channel High Definition Audio with S/PDIF-Out, and IEEE 1394à.

The MCP68M-M bases on NVIDIA GeForce 7050SE/nForce 630a and supports same processors as the board above. It features integrated GeForce 7 graphics with a DVI-D interface. Features also include SATA II 3Gbps RAID, Gigabit LAN and High Definition Audio.

The entry-level C51PVGM-M bases on NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE+nForce 410 and supports same processors as well as HyperTransport. It also features integrated graphics - GeForce 6150LE, SATA II 3Gbps RAID, a more humble 10/100 LAN, and 8-channel High Definition Audio with S/PDIF-Out.

CeBIT 2007. ECS: Intel-Based Products

As expected Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) pays the most attention to Intel-based motherboard. The long-anticipated series for 45nm processors includes five boards at once.

The Q35T-M (vPro) based on the Q35+ICH9DO supports Intel vPro, DDR2-800, features 1333 MHz FSB, Gigabit LAN, 8-channel High Definition Audio, IEEE 1394a, DVI-D.

The P35T-A (Viiv) utilizes the P35+ICH9DH chipset. Besides the support for Intel's 45nm multi-core and Viiv, it supports DDR3 and Robson technology. According to ECS, the board has chipset overclocking capabilities unlocked. Max. FSB value is 1333 MHz. Also in the feature list: Intel Fast Memory Access, ATI CrossFire, SATA II 3Gbps (RAID, eSATA).

The more humble G33T-M bases on the G33+ICH9 core logic. It supports DDR2-800, Intel CVT, 1333 MHz FSB, Intel Robson and features IEEE 1394a and DVI-D.

The similar G33T-M (Viiv) features Viiv support as indicated. This one bases on the G33+ICH9DH (1333 MHz FSB, DDR2-800, Intel CVT, Robson.)

The Q33T-M based on the Q33+ICH9 also supports DDR2-800 and 1333 MHz FSB. Features include Gigabit LAN, 8-channel High Definition Audio, IEEE 1394a, and DVI-D.

The PX1 based on the Intel P965 + ICH8DH is meant for Intel Core 2 Extreme processors. It supports Intel Viiv, ATI CrossFire, Qooltech technologies and features SATA II 3Gbps RAID, eSATA, 2 x Gigabit LAN, 8-channel High Definition Audio, IEEE 1394à, and S/PDIF-Out. The cooling system with copper heatsinks and heat-pipes also stands out.

Finally, based on the 946GZ+ICH7 chipset is the 965PLT-A for Intel Core 2 Quad processors. It features integrated Intel GMA 3000 graphics, SATA II 3Gbps, 10/100 LAN, 6-channel High Definition Audio with S/PDIF-Out.

CeBIT 2007. PowerColor

At its booth at CeBIT 2007 TUL (PowerColor brand) focused attention on the SCS3 silent graphics card series. This one is the PowerColor X1950 PRO Silence Edition:

PowerColor X1650 SCS3 is a similar, but more "lightweight" product with a simpler cooling system with only a couple of heat-pipes, while the X1950 PRO SCS3 features all four:

PowerColor X1950 PRO SCS3 specs:

  • 575 MHz core clock
  • 690 MHz (1380 MHz) RAM (GDDR3) clock
  • 256MB of 256-bit RAM
  • 2 x Dual DVI (with HDCP support), VIVO/HDTV
  • PCI Express x16
  • P/N: 4712505020952

PowerColor X1650 SCS3 specs:

  • 700 MHz (1400 MHz) RAM (GDDR3) clock
  • 256MB of 128-bit bus
  • 2 x Dual DVI (with HDCP support), HDTV
  • PCI Express x16
  • P/N: 4712505020389

The company also showcases the PowerColor i-Screen Head Mounted Display that can be used with a PDA, notebook, PMP, or any other device equipped with a composite or S-Video interface. The resolution of 432x240 provides virtual screen of 37" diagonal. Those who wear glasses can also adjust i-Screen lenses within -1 to +3 dioptre range. It also didn't go without headphones:
