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 – õ1, õ2, õ4, õ8, õ16, õ32 – 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...
