Once we heard from him that they were showing off an enterprise server system that was able to push almost 1GB/s through its storage system, we had to take the video camera up and get a closer look at what was going on.

Jessica from OCZ introduced their Computex demo system that consisted of eight of its brand new Deneva SSDs. This new model is based on the SandForce SF-1500 controller that is using a custom SAS interface and SLC flash memory.

The system was also installed with LSI's mainstream SAS 2.0 controller card that is critical in being able to push these amazing numbers that OCZ demonstrated to us today at the show.

Cameron Wilmot | Mobile Devices | Tue, Jun 1 2010 5:49 AM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Qualcomm held an exclusive media showcase at Computex today where it took the opportunity to introduce press to some new gadgets that are based around Qualcomm technology called the Snapdragon platform.

Snapdragon is not a new platform as it was introduced back at Computex last year, but the purpose of this event was to show off some of the new devices that have just entered the market or are about to go on sale at little later this year.

We were first shown the Dell Streak which was first shown earlier this year at the Davos World Economic Forum in January. It's an intriguing little device that is a fusion between a smartphone, tablet and mobile internet device. It is able to take photos at 5MP and playback 720p video rather smoothly as you can see in the video above. We also got a look at a new smartbook as well as a prototype reference tablet system designed to showcase what Qualcomm silicon is capable of doing.

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - In keeping up with the times eVGA are rolling out a couple new X58 chipset motherboards. For the most part they're highly similar to the existing X58 SLI LE and X58 Classified boards, but the most notable additions include both USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps support with 3rd party controllers from NEC and Marvell placed onboard.

Would have been nice if they'd tacked on an NF200 bridge to the new Classified for further measure. We can only hope they'll introduce another model with this in the not too distant future.

With high end tablets being all the rage, especially with the Asus Eee Pad and MSI WindPad wowing at Computex, a full featured tablet PC for children in at risk areas and in developing countries may seem like a far fetched idea. Marvell Technology Group and One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) have formed a partnership to make this a reality with their progressive goal of creating a family of educational tablets shooting for high functionality with a pricetag of under $100. Next year's CES is the date that OLPC and Marvell are shooting for to release this product.

Corsair expands chassis line-up with 600T Graphite mid-tower

Cameron Wilmot | Cases, Cooling & PSU | Mon, May 31 2010 7:50 PM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - They say that looks can be deceiving and Corsair's whole thing with its new 600T Graphite mid-tower computer case is that its mid sized on the outside, but full sized on the inside.

Corsair has taken the fundamentals of its previous generation cases such as the 800D and 700D and applied it to the 600T which it is officially launching today. It takes many of the features we like with the 800D such as the smartly designed inside panel cable management and more, but then adds in some new changes.

For one, one of the drive bay racks can be removed providing support for video cards up to 15-inches in length. You can also remove the top extracting 200mm fan and replace it with a 2 x 120mm radiator and fans which as mentioned it pretty rare for a case of this size.

Corsair intros AX Gold PSUs and Airflow Pro RAM LED meters

Cameron Wilmot | Cases, Cooling & PSU | Mon, May 31 2010 7:50 PM CDT

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Yesterday we visited the folks over at Corsair at their suite at the Grand Hyatt and they were showing off a range of new products which improve on its usual suspects that we have came to known over the years.

First up we got an introduction from Jim regarding Corsair's brand new Airflow Pro which is a parametric display that is able to hook to the RAM by means of a simple link cable that is able to detect things like RAM temperature and usage. It is able to visually monitor up to six memory modules from the single meter, so all you folks out there run triple-channel memory setups are all set to go.

Secondly Jim gave us a run-down on Corsair's also brand new line-up of AX Professional Series Gold power supply units which as the name would suggest are 80 Plus Gold certified. They have all sorts of good stuff going on inside that are said to dramatically decrease the ripple effect and provide a very solid and stable system with its use of high-end parts that are usually reserved for server level power units.
