At the Computex show, manufacturers have two purposes – display and explain the new gear, and provide a ‘show’ for media and partners.  Part of the Gigabyte show over recent years as one of the main sponsors of Computex is their VIP suite on the 36th floor of the Taipei 101, reserved for media and special guests, with the main Gigabyte booth at one of the show halls nearer to the ground.  My first meeting this week was at the Gigabyte VIP Suite, looking at most of the new hardware and talking to the important people who make the decisions.

The Suite

Gigabyte is the sole company at Computex with a suite at the Taipei 101, and they take up the three conference rooms, including the boardroom.  In one section we have motherboards and motherboard technologies:

In the boardroom are mobile and SFF devices:

In the final room are the other segments of Gigabyte’s overall business – servers, GPUs, keyboards, mice and IPC.

    There was a Haswell BRIX there, though it was just a shell / a hint towards a future product. It had the same shell as the Kabini BRIX, but they are still deciding on which processors to use - I was told to expect i3, i5 and i7. Hopefully we will see Crystalwell in there...

    Definitely interested in one of those Kabini BRIX as an HTPC solution. Hopefully one with the A4-5000 will be nice and cheap. It'd also be great if there was Miracast support.

    The BRIX is confused. It doesnt know what it wants to be: "server department", "thin client", "netbox", or "htpc". Jack of all trades, master of

    Lots of mobos, great...but where's the B/H/Z87/5M(X)-D3HP? Why do they (though they aren't alone) add an internal USB hub on the big boards with several extra slots, instead of the smaller ones, where those are more precious? MicroATX and MiniITX could get much more use out of that than standard ATX,
