Computex 2003 Coverage - Day 3

By: Cameron Wilmot | Trade Shows | Posted: Sep 24, 2003 4:00 am




The XFX booth in Hall 1 looked really appealing so we decided to stop in and visit them shortly and have a look at what they had to offer.


It quickly became obvious that XFX were a partner with nVidia with all their promotional stuff plastered around the place. XFX are a division of Pine, but focused totally on the gamer. They were showing off their full range of impressive looking GeForce FX cards:





nVidia Personal Cinema products are starting to make an appearance around Computex. For those that don't know, this product is designed to compete with ATI's popular All-in-Wonder series of cards.






After XFX we ventured to the cramped Thermaltake booth on the second floor of Hall 1 where they were showing off a lot of coolers as well as their new Aquarius III self-contained water cooling kit which is very similar in nature to Corsair's HyrdoCool.



Thermaltake have some nice products, but of late they have begun copying other company's products - like Vantec and their AeroFlow for example. What are you guys doing at Thermaltake?


Cooler Master



Just only a few moments away from Thermaltake were Cooler Master who was showing off a few of their nifty products in the fairly small booth. Cooler Master is one of my favorite companies for cases and related products - every product never fails to be visually appealing in every possible way.


For those of you who didn't realize, Cooler Master was the producer of stock coolers for the reference nVidia GeForce FX 5900 Ultra. Cooler Master had an optional cooler on display which caught my eye.



Next up we saw a new Cooler Master case decked out with some of their new drive bay devices such as the AeroGate II:



Cooler Master's newest product is the Musketeer II which is a front panel device which is designed to control such things as fan speed as well as monitoring the temperature of certain parts of the system while maintaining the typical Cooler Master sex appeal.




The blue version of this product will be shipping soon but the other colors will not be available for a month or so.
