Computex is kicking off tomorrow, and sadly I will not be making it to the show this year. After a 30% rent increase compared to last year, I find myself having to find and rent a new place to live in the next 14 days. We will be covering the news as much as we can from here each morning, so keep an eye on this site for all the news coming out of Taipei this week.
For now, here are today’s batch of hardware reviews:
- I guess it’s fitting to start things of with what is sure to be the first Computex 2011 article out there: TechWareLab’s coverage of Computex’s own New Product Preview Event.
- Next up is t-break’s review of TwinMOS TwiSTER 4GB DDR3-2133 Memory Kit. TwinMOS is a relatively small memory company, so it should be interesting to see how their DDR3 kit performs.
- NGOHQ has some news on Intel’s latest Rapid Storage Technology drivers (their name for their AHCI drivers), which adds Intel Smart Response Technology (their name for SSD caching).
- Speaking of SSD, here’s a review of a Crucial m4 256GB SSD drive by TechSpot.
- If you’re in the market for a new video card for around $250, you might want to check out the Gainward GTX 560 Ti 2048MB that Metku has reviewed today.
- Or maybe something from Asus might be better for you – check out OCAU’s review of the ASUS GTX 560 DirectCU II TOP for more info on that one.
- How about a three-in-one GTX 560 review? Hexus.net has looked at cards from Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI in this roundup.
- Speaking of roundups, here’s a P67 roundup, including boards from Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and Intel at Techgage.
- If your video card budget is a little lower than $250, maybe you’ll want to consider this ASUS Radeon HD 6870 DirectCU II 1GB being reviewed at TweakTown
- How about a mechanical hard drive review? Here’s a review of the Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB at HardwareSecrets
- Remember the memory maker GEiL? Seems they have followed the lead of most other companies and have spun off a brand of mice and other peripherals called EpicGear. VR-Zone has an exclusive look at their MeduZa Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology Gaming Mouse (there’s a mouthful).
- Real World Labs has a review of the G-Technology G-RAID Mini Dual-Drive Storage System.
