Our report from Computex 2003: Gigabyte´s offerings
Companies are showcasing lots of innovations at Computex 2003 in Taiwan. Of course, we´ll try to report about new technologies and prospect developments first, but no report would be good without a coverage of novelties that should arrive to shops in the nearest future.
A quick view of exposition:
Let´s begin from the Gigabyte´s booth. Below is an AMD Athlon FX51 system:
It features K8NNXP-940 motherboard on NVIDIA nForce3 Pro 150, FX 5900 Ultra and GEIL DDR500. But what impressed me most was 800Mbps IEEE1934b support. This is still a rarity in desktops, especially integrated (excluding Apple´s systems).
Perhaps, some would guess how NVIDIA-based card appeared on Gigabyte´s booth? Actually this doesn´t surprise me now as strong as before :-) Though I didn´t see the "made by Gigabyte" mark onboard (perhaps, some comments will be offered later). But nearby there´s a GV-R96P128DU solution on a usual ATI Radeon 9600 Pro:
Below is a long anticipated and spoken of Centrino-based Gigabyte NB-1401 notebook.
NB1401 based on Intel 855GM + ICH4-M chipset; features 1.3/1.4/1.5/1.6/1.7GHz Intel Pentium M processor; has two DDR SO-DIMM sockets for up to 2Gb, 14.1" XGA, 20/30/40/60/80Gb HDD, thin 9.5mm optical DVD/CD-RW, WLAN Intel 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, 56K v.90 modem, PCMCIA Type II slot. The body is made of aluminium-magnesium alloy. They say with Microsoft Windows XP this will cost about $2000.
And below is a photo of a total novelty. It´s NB201 on Intel Pentium M with 2 x DDR SO-DIMM sockets (up to 2Gb), but already with 12.1" XGA display and standard interfaces. The notebook weighs just 1.56kg. Pricing hasn´t been undisclosed.
