Gigabyte - Part 1

There are two parts to the Gigabyte coverage. The first part will cover the Gigabyte booth at the convention center, while the second part will cover my one-on-one meeting with a representative at Gigabyte's invitation-only office at the Taipei 101.

First up are the motherboards, with a sprinkle of video cards.

As I was wandering about the booth, I ran into products that I did not know Gigabyte made. First is the Go-Ramdisk. Gigabyte states that it is designed for massive storage access applications. There is also a non-PCI version called the Go-Ramdisk Box, also known as the iRAM. It sits in a 5.25" bay and offers fast storage.

Another curiosity was the LAN surge protector, the Lightning Guardian Angel.

In the adjacent showcase, Gigabyte was showing off its various cooling products. First up are the laptop cooling pads, the Roll Pad, G-Pad and the G-Pad Pro.

Gigabyte had two CPU coolers, as well as an experimental RAM cooler on display. The CPU coolers went by the name G-Power 2 and G-Power II Pro, both touting their ability to cool surrounding MOSFETs. The RAM cooler went by the name Cool Rain. It's a liquid RAM cooler that's still being tweaked. The representative stated that the biggest concern was, evidently, weight.

The final products on display at the booth were Gigabyte's cases, which spanned from the relatively mundane to the extreme.

The extreme case had a name, the 3D Mercury. It contained an easy to use liquid cooling system, and sitting on top was a stylish valve that displayed wattage, temperature, and fan speed of the power supply.
