When we hear GIGABYTE we think awesome desktop motherboards or even USB 3.0 these days but they have been making parts for the entire industry for many years now. Here we see one of the latest workstation boards built for dual Xeon processors and sixteen memory modules.

NVIDIA's Future is so Bright...

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - ... they gotta wear shades. Sometimes I just can't help myself but then again neither could NVIDIA today. Starting off a keynote speech asking for a moment to reflect on your technological achievements isn't a really bad way to kick things off, unless it's everyone's job in the room to already know everything you have accomplished.

 

TweakTown image news/1/5/15504_01.jpg

 

Things have to be tough for the Green Team as of late and by starting off saying that we are going to look back only tells me you don't have a lot to say about your future. At that point I had a feeling it was going to be a show with a few prop tossed in. Here we see the NVIDIA CEO having a bit of a scripted conversation with ASUS' CEO. Not a bad prop to be able to call on.

So, what's going to be hot at Computex Taipei 2010?

By: Array

Every few weeks or so we hold a tech event in Taipei for people involved in the tech industry. It is a time where these people get together and discuss technology developments and shares some drinks.

 

For this event, we just finished of our latest gathering and for a change I thought it would be interesting to see what the folks thought would be hot at Computex Taipei 2010 next week. Without holding...
