CeBIT 2006: GeCube

In Hannover GeCube showcased a graphics card on 2 x X1600XT GPUs operating without CrossFire (!), i.e. theoretically enabling to use 4 GPUs on a CrossFire-enabled motherboard.

And this device can record data from external sources.

Below you can see how it works: the list of sources for recording (hardware MPEG-4) includes DVD players, TV, or camcorders. The device can make photo slideshows (it has an SD slot) and play DivX/XviD movies or ÌÐ3 files. It has a 20-120 GB 2.5" hard drive.

Besides these devices, GeCube introduced a multimedia entertainment gadget with wireless connectivity:


  • Compatible with existing wireless networks
  • Supports MPEG1-4 (up to 720x480), DivX/XviD and WMV9 (1080i ASP)
  • Supports ÌÐ3 (VBR and 32-320 Kbps) and WMA (VBR and 64-192 Kbps)
  • Supports JPG (up to 12 megapixels)
  • 3.5" HDD, up to 500GB
  • CF I-II, Microdrive SD, MMC, Memory Stick (Pro), xD slots
  • USB 2.0
  • Composite AV, RJ45 (802.11b/g)
  • Powers from external source
  • Weight 500g
