- Altech Computers
Altech is a relatively new Australian computer reseller who managed to get a stand set up for this year's ITExpo in the hope of bringing more awareness to their store. This stand showcased many of the products that they currently have for sale at their store, such as the latest motherboards, video cards, heatsink/fan units, etc. There weren't any groundbreakingly new products on display, but Altech did have a few things that interested me.
Firstly, Altech had Asus's new "Terminator" Duron-based barebones PC setup for display. This PC featured an AMD Duron 1.2GHz processor, an Asus A7VC motherboard based on the VIA KL133A chipset, 2 PCI slots, 1 AMR slot, 2 DIMM slots and onboard graphics, audio and LAN controllers. It is quite a powerful setup considering that it is just a barebones PC and would be more than sufficient as a LAN machine or DVD player.
Secondly, Altech were displaying the relatively new Asus P4S333 motherboard, which is based on the SiS645 chipset that supports DDR333 memory (our review here). Altech were also displaying the Asus A7N266-E board which is based on nVidia's highly integrated nForce chipset (our review of a similar board, the MSI K7N420 Pro, here). Both boards are very decent, and you can expect a review of the A7N266-E shortly.
Aside from the Asus Terminator, there were two other demo PCs setup at Altech's stand. The first was a water-cooled Pentium 4 system that was running an X-Micro GeForce3 Ti200 video card and an AthlonXP. This was used for playing DVD movies through a huge Samsung LCD monitor. The second system was an air-cooled dual AthlonMP system that was demoing the game "Serious Sam" on an even larger LCD monitor!
