- Day 1 Comdex Coverage

We couldn't make it to Comdex this year due to many of our sponsors not attending the (dying?) IT show themselves. Chris Tom from AMD Zone made the trip to Las Vegas and has posted Day 1 coverage from the event consisting mostly of pictures looking at many different AMD 64-bit products, nVidia's new mobile GPU (GeForce FX Go5700) and so forth.

We cover AMD and Nvidia. It includes 90nm Opteron, Athlon 64 notebooks, GeForce FX Go5700, UT2004, and Medal of Honor Pacific Assault.
