The show goes on...
In this article we've got more pictures of NVIDIA's G70, pictures of all of the CrossFire motherboards from manufacturers at the show, a look at cooling at Computex, benchmarks of ULi's new Socket-939 chipset and much more.

More from Gigabyte
Gigabyte's i-RAM card generated quite a bit of interest in our Early Bird Computex Coverage, so we decided to bring you all some more pictures and information about the solution.
As we alluded to in our initial article, the i-RAM card features 4 DIMM slots and supports DDR200 DIMMs. You can use faster memory but it will only run at DDR200.
Below you can see the i-RAM card populated and in action:

erwos - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkQuick question for you, Anand: when you say DDR200 in reference to the i-RAM card, do you mean PC3200 or PC1600?
It would seem to make zero sense to use PC3200 RAM, when the PCI bus is already limiting you to 133mb/s anyways. I hope they're using low-clocked RAM (makes more sense!), which is cheaper anyways...
I guess there's some latency differences, but at the nanosecond range, who's going to notice?
ryanv12 - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - link#4 - Yeah, I'm in the same boat. I want to upgrade my processor but would like to hang onto my 6800GT for a while. I hope that board makes its way to the US, because it would be a perfect solution for me.

Oh joy, DRM rears its ugly head again.
erwos - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkSo, does this mean the Shuttle SN26P got cancelled? Damn.
semo - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkif the nvidia g70 card is a single slot solution than the rumor that the g70 will burn 150w cannot be true right. anyone know what is the actual power rating for the g70?
mjz - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linklets see some real world tests done with the gigbyte ram drive :p
plewis00 - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkThat all looks quite exciting, the thing which caught my eye was the Pentium M XPC. I wonder now if Shuttle do one they'll get it right (Aopen's was cool but no SATA support...). Anyone know the model number for it?

flatblastard - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkWhew, that's was a lot of coverage, anand! I'll have to admit though, I was more interested in the vanilla Xpress 200 motherboards than crossfire/r520/g70/blah/blah/yawn.....Did you happen to notice any new Xpress 200 + socket 939 mobos? Even if you didn't have a chance to cover them, I'd be interested to know if you've seen/heard anything new. Well, congratualtions on another job well done.
SynthDude2001 - Wednesday, June 1, 2005 - linkThat ULi chipset/motherboard with support for both AGP and PCI-Express really caught my eye. It would be a nice upgrade path for those of us still stuck with slower CPU's (Athlon XP in my case), but not quite ready to upgrade our high-end AGP video card yet (6800GT in my case).
