The Tech Report have been posting Computex updates like mad and still are having a hard time keeping up due to the huge volume of information from this years expo.   Lynnfield processors and the P55 boards they will run on were showing next to nVIDIA's Tegra processor and Ion platform.  Various PSU makers were showing off their 80+ lineups, including this very impressive beast.  There were some interesting new tricks with notebooks and the motherboard makers were showing off too

There is a lot more to see there but don't tire your eyes out as Ryan has a newly minted article on his travels at Computex as well.

Join us for the latest official and unofficial news about Intel's next quad-core processors, Tegra and Ion systems from Nvidia, ultra- efficient power supplies from Seasonic and Enermax, next-gen netbook touchpads, AMD processor core unlocking from Gigabyte, and much more."

At first glance, more news about tessellation in games raises very little interest; we have been hearing that it is just around the corner for almost a decade now.  A second look reveals that not only are they right this time, but AMD has the fully DX11 compliant 40nm silicon to prove it.  Sure the current generation of GPUs from AMD can do tessellation in benchmarks, but no games support the technology.  With DX11 we will finally see the arrival of tessellation as well as some other interesting improvements.  You can find pict
