Our report from Computex 2003, ASUS Computer booth (continued): a system of LGA755 (Prescott)

We continue our report from the ASUS booth at Computex 2003. Today it´s about some system building concepts that should become actual next spring.

This placard notifies booth visitors about things the nearest future should bring:

I can´t say it´s something extraordinary, however in general it´s impressive: 240-pin DIMM DDR-II 400/533/667 for new DDR-I incompatible socket, variaous PCI Express solutions 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 to replace the current PCI and AGP, Serial ATA-II (still compatible with SATA-I), new cooling systems, new "default" audio standard 24-bit/192kHz, etc.

However, this is just a piece of paper, but what do we have now? ASUS showcased a "system of the future", though didn´t provide any comments. Look carefully, there are some interesting things to familiarize yourself with new interfaces, sockets, the way how processor looks. Our Alexander Vorobyev who sent us this report from the event wasn´t completely sure it was a Prescott still it resembled a LGA775 solution, especially on one of the photos below. And I guess you already understood who made a GPU for the graphics card installed :)

In all other respects, these photos illustrate the concept: you can see DDR-II 533, PCI Express, Serial ATA-II, etc. It seems this concept will continue as a concept for not more than a half-year...
