ECS (Elitegroup Computer Systems) will be attending this years Computex 2011 convention, and they plan to unveil a slew of new hardware. During the week, they will be showing off new motherboards, a new graphics card, four All-In-One PCs, two tablets, two notebooks, and an eBook reader of all things.
For the DIY enthusiasts, ECS will be showing off a AMD 990FX chipset motherboard, which will support AMD's Bulldozer processors, as well as a new series of motherboards "for cloud computing, home server, (and) work station." While they were not willing to give out details at this time, they will have live high end gaming setups for attendees to demo at the show. Further, ECS is releasing a NVIDIA GeForce 560 graphics card. Again, they did not share any specifications, they claim that their card is 40% faster than its 460 predecessor.
All-In-One PCs will also be receiving a large showing at the ECS booth, with three SKUs of their "PC—G11" touch screen computer with wireless connectivity. The DS110, MS300, and MS150 specifically will provide different levels of performance thanks to three differing levels of hardware (they mention CPUs and chipsets).
On the mobile front, ECS is unveiling two tablets. The S10 is a 10.1" Atom Z670 tablet with a resolution of 1366x768 and HDMI out along with 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, and "3G or GPS." The V07 is a 7" tablet based on similar specifications that will be released in August 2011. The MB40 and MB50 are 14" and 15" Sandy Bridge powered notebooks with LED displays at 1366x768 and featuring a 6-in-1 card reader. Further, ECS is debuting a 6" and 8" touch screen eBook reader with WiFi, Bluetooth, and 3G. The eBook reader will feature either a monochrome or multicolor display, and will run the Android mobile operating system.
