One thing that Intel did show to us was their new imaging program that is currently in beta. One of the biggest problems people have is organizing their photos. Intel wants to solve that problem with this new program that makes a database of your photos so you can find them in an easy to use calendar. Not only will this system organize your photos, but it will also organize your videos as well. You will be able to edit your photos, makes changes, and more all in real time. The video has facial recognition as well. From what Intel tells us this software will be bundled with Intel motherboards, no word on if it will be available for sale as a standalone product.
nVidia, for one, has developed a new chipset for the LGA 775, the nForce 740i SLI. They took the bridges c55 + MCP51, used in the nForce 650i chipset, and built around it a platform for an entry-level SLI motherboard, to complement the nF 750i SLI and nF 790i SLI boards. Our friends at ASRock are the first to build a motherboard from the 740i SLI, the N7AD-SLI. They also have launched their new quick-boot system, ASRock Instant Boot, on this motherboard. Read on as we look at this latest offering for the LGA 775 processor.
CyberPower is one of the leading computer system manufacturers in the US, pumping out awesome gaming rigs and entry level systems.

Read on to see what CyberPower has in store for you in 2009.
Today I will be looking at one of Rosewill’s latest products, a steel midtower called the Wind Ryder. Until very recently, Rosewill used model numbers instead of names, this is among the few Rosewill cases that are named. The biggest feature of this case is the incredible price, which will go a long way towards keeping a budget rig stay within your set budget. Will this inexpensive case fit the bill, or will it cramp your style? Read further to see!
Lexar/Crucial had many memory products on display, but there were two things which were more noticeable than anything: a computer in a globe, and the SSD shaker. The globe computer’s memory was connected to various LEDs placed where major cities are, and the SSD shaker, well, shook an SSD like a jackhammer while a movie played from it. ThinkComputers was there.
Memory maker SanDisk showed off a few new things this year, most interestingly its third generation SSD technology. It received an award for its second generation SSD technology, too. We’d be in error to omit the release of its strange new PMP, too. ThinkComputers checks it out.
I spent an afternoon at the Sands this year, something which I was unable to do last year. The Sands exhibitors’ are comprised of primarily foreign exhibitors. Many are Taiwanese; in fact, there’s an entire section of the floor dedicated to Taiwanese companies. There are a few from China, a few from Japan, a few from Canada, and a few from Europe. I visited the boothes of CoolIT, Lian Li, QNAP, Seventeam, Super Talent, and Zotac.
ASUS probably had the largest and busiest booth in the south hall of the Las Vegas convention center this year. They had quite a few things on display including motherboards, video cards, notebooks and more. Just like everyone else they also had a few all-in-one solutions on display. Let’s take a look at what all the craziness was about at the ASUS booth.
Antec has been relatively quiet over the past year, just a few releases. This year at CES they invited us up to their suite to check out some of their new products and even to take a look at a prototype case that looks nothing like anything that is out right now! Let’s see what Antec will be releasing this year!
