Computex 2003 Coverage - Day 1

By: Cameron Wilmot | Trade Shows | Posted: Sep 22, 2003 4:00 am




Our good friends at Chaintech were showing off their massive range of impressive looking motherboards, graphics cards, desktop in shape of notebook and so forth.


First off in the motherboard department we see their Athlon 64 motherboard based on the nVidia nForce3 150 chipset:



This motherboard is one of Chaintech's first to include their new RadEX technology which uses heat pipe technology to expel heat from hottest part of the system - the CPU - which is fairly similar to what ABIT have done with their onboard OTES cooling system. By removing heat from this part of the motherboard, Chaintech claim that it can reduce temperatures by up to 30% which should assist you when you are trying to get as much out of your system.


Below you will find a couple photos of the RadEX technology:



Moving away from motherboards we meet with Chaintech's truly impressive line of nVidia based graphics cards. It's seriously amazing to see the type of graphics cards we have at our mercy today compared to boring green PCBs from only 4 or 5 years ago. Where will be in another 4 or 5 years? That question does deserve real thought.


I'll let the pictures doing the talking:






Simply lovely!


Next in line at the Chaintech booth for some camera bashing was Chaintech's new deceiving desktop computers which are in the exact same shape as a regular notebook. Chaintech told us they will not be putting these products into retail themselves but selling them to system integrators who will re-badge them and sell them as their own.




The nature of this product is similar to ECS' line of I-Buddie products but they are by no means designed to be portable. This become obvious when we realized that the system can only be powered by mains power, no battery in sight and there are no plans to add one.


That's it for Day 1, c u 2morrow!
