You may have noticed with the new look to PC Perspective have come several new features, such as tags to group common topics together to make it easier to find them. The important tag right now is computex, which will group all of the news we have reported from Computex.
Ryan is not the only attendee of the conference, so in order to ensure you have enough information to keep you satiated over the day you can take a look at AnandTech's coverage as well. They spent time with OCZ, discussing the RevoDrive Hybrid, a standard 0.5/1TB platter based HDD and a Vertex 3 SSD on PCIe card, a form factor that Intel's SRT has made obsolete but is still interesting to see. The new PCIe based Z-Drive on the other hand can do very impressive things, the R4 88 has eight SF-2281 controllers in RAID 0! RevoDrives with TRIM support are also very nice to see. Intel talked about both the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform as well as their plans for USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt.
Stay tuned for more.

It is that time of year again where the staff at PC Perspective wades through the moist air of Taipei, Taiwan to bring you the latest news, videos and updates from the world of technology and computing hardware. This marks my 10th appearance on the island of Taiwan, but Ken's first so it should be an interesting experience for both of us.
Yes, this scary girl is here again too.
This year we have a surprising amount of expected hardware to investigate starting with an onslaught of AMD-based technology. The AMD 990FX chipset will be out and about in force from the likes of ASUS, MSI, ECS and others while the Fusion APUs will be flaunted in notebooks and likely even some "surprise" Llano designs. Intel's Z68 chipset, though already launched, will still be a focus but the company will surprise many with a dramatic move into the world of mobile computing with the Atom line.
Temperatures are high but so is the excitement!!
