Next to Iwill's stand was the stand of one of our favourite motherboard manufacturers, EPoX. EPoX were kind enough to sponsor Cameron and I to fly up to Computex and cover the show this year, and we are very grateful that they gave us this opportunity. Thank you EPoX.
The first board we noticed at EPoX's stand was their 4SDA5+, based on the SiS648 chipset. It features 6 PCI slots, AGP 8x, a HPT372 controller for ATA133 RAID, 6-channel AC97 audio w/ digital SPDIF support, two IEEE1394 ports and a 10/100 LAN connector.
Like Iwill, EPoX had their i850E board on display, called the 4T4A+. It features PC1066 RDRAM support, 6-channel onboard audio, two IEEE1294 ports, 10/100 LAN connector and 5 PCI slots. We will have this board for review at TweakTown in the near future.
EPoX also had a reference ClawHammer board on display based on VIA's upcoming K8HTA chipset. VIA, ALi, SiS and nVidia all have ClawHammer chipsets planned and i'm sure i'm not the only one that is hanging with anticipation for the chipset war to begin. VIA have held a comfortable lead on the AMD chipset market for some time now and it will be great to see some competition.
We were really surprised at how many motherboard manufacturers were displaying KT400-based motherboards at Computex, considering the fact that VIA have not even released the chipset yet. EPoX's KT400 board will be called the 8K9A and will feature DDR400 memory support, AGP 8x, 5 PCI slots, 2 Serial ATA ports, 6-channel audio and 10/100 LAN port.
Finally, one of the most interesting things I saw at EPoX's stand and no where else was a Pentium 4 game server called the G100. It features an i845D-based motherboard with a 10/100 LAN connector and an AGP riser. It also comes with a 250watt power supply and has both audio and game ports.
