COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - I am back home in the States but still have some Computex news bits to show you guys. First for this evening we have the GIGABYTE booth where the company was showing everything from motherboards and notebooks to server boards and servers.
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.
Making server boards is one thing but GIGABYTE also sells servers as well. Here we see two barebone servers that just need processors, memory and drives supplied by the customer.
COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - We are done and dusted for another Computex and it was actually my 10th year at the show. It is pretty funny to walk around the halls and have people continually ask when the booth babes video is going live.
