Computex 2005 Coverage - Day 3: ASUS HQ Visit and more from the show floor - Foxconn

As the above image attests, it's been a hectic week for us here at Computex '05. From the plethora of company parties with unlimited bar tabs, to our meetings that begin at 9am each morning, we haven't had much sleep. But the show must go on, and today, while being fairly uneventful compared to the past few days, was quite interesting. Again, home theatre products are huge at this year's show, and most vendors we visited today had some sort of SFF PC on display. In the morning we visited a number of booths - Iwill, Foxconn, FIC, SiS and Scythe - and in the afternoon we visited ASUS' Taiwan headquarters for a short tour.

Foxconn is introducing a new SFF PC called the e-Bot Savant, which supports 800MHz FSB P4 processors and is based around the SiS 661FX chipset. The specs tell us that it probably won't be as high performing as the competition, but as you can see from the image they certainly look the part!




Also of interest at the Foxconn stand was this tiny water cooling unit, which is ideal for those with cramped mini-ATX cases.



Portable DVD players seem to be the new black at this year's show, and Foxconn was sure to jump on the bandwagon with a 3.5" LCD unit called 'Spicael'. Sporting a resolution of 160x234 and a contrast ratio of 200:1, colours look fairly vibrant. However, battery life will be the clincher here and this is yet to be seen



Finally, Foxconn seems to be moving into the enthusiast market more and more, as highlighted in its display system based around their new 945G-based motherboard which includes all of the bells and whistle that are usually limited to the more enthusiast oriented companies such as ABIT.



That just about ends our coverage of Day 3, but you can be sure to hear more from us tomorrow. Take care.
