Computex 2008 – The Roundup

by Rob Williams on June 16, 2008 in Trade Shows

In our last Computex article, I am taking a look at a slew of products from a few different companies that had a lot to offer, such as OCZ, Thermaltake, ECS, Gigabyte, Foxconn and others. Included is a look at numerous motherboards, video cards and even some power supplies.


Whew. We’ve been online for three years now, and have yet to take a look at an MSI product. That will change soon, because they have some great-looking products on the horizon. I’ve always been intrigued by MSI’s board designs, because they use very unique heatsinks, while other brands tend to stick to tried and true (and potentially bland) styles.

For those who have DDR2 now, but might want DDR3 later, the P458D might be for you. Unlike most of the competition, they allow you to use a full 8GB of either DDR2 or DDR3 (that’s assuming 2GB modules), rather than 4GB of DDR3 and 8GB of DDR2.

Like many others, MSI gave their 9600 GT’s some special coolers. It was a common theme all throughout Computex, and I assume it’s because the 9600 GT is a killer GPU, but also comes in at an affordable price.

Next up, some Thermaltake action.
