Take a virtual walk through Computex 2011
Subject: General Tech | June 3, 2011 - 11:40 AM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Since we can't all attend Computex 2011 in the flesh we have to content ourselves with what is posted on the web. Ryan and Ken are representing PC Perspective over in Taipei and all of their coverage can be found on this handy page.
They are not alone over there, for instance The Tech Report have been hard at work posting the most interesting things they saw. The content includes updates from hardware vendors like Kingston and Patriot's SATA 6G SSDs and mITX Z68 boards from Zotac and ASUS' new hybrid tablets and mini Eee netbooks. On the software sided a company called Imagination Tech has made it possible to support DirectX on ARM and tablets, Lucid has changed V-Sync forever and Microsoft has been showing off Windows 8. That only scratches the surface of their coverage, which will give you something to read while you wait for Ryan to wake up and post more news.
"With staffers both on the show floor and back at home watching things from afar, we've produced some fairly exhaustive Computex coverage this week. Here's a handy list of the highlights, from major announcements like Microsoft's Windows 8 reveal to geekier developments like Lucid's work on Virtu for AMD platforms."
