Notes on Computex 2006

This year saw a lot more products on VOIP, more particularly, making Skype work on standalone phones….and on PABXes. Some other directions were on IP cameras, and global satellite positioning devices…

What i was interested on was the Intel Duo Core technology. Over at Hall 4 where Intel had their exhibits, the technical staff there showed me the impressive features :

  • Lower Core temperature (where they had the cpu run at 100% and turned off the power to the cpu cooling fan
  • Better utilization of the dual cpus (using a video editing program, both cpus were utilized almost evenly
  • Intel ViV feature. (HDMI , and all that jazz)
