Gigabyte isn’t exactly a household tech name, but they’ve got some interesting new wares they’re ready to show off at Computex this year. One of them is the M1125, an 11.6.-inch convertible touchscreen notebook that features a Core I-series CPU (whether that’s an i3,i5, or i7 is undisclosed) as well as USB 3.0 support and a webcam. It will be lacking a disk drive, but to make up for it, there will be an “innovative” docking port that features an optical drive embedded in it. Computex is next week, so more details will be sure to follow.


GIGABYTE Focuses on Extreme Performance and Flexibility for Computex 2010

Record-breaking components, stylish designs, and unique system accessories to be unveiled at Taiwan’s largest IT computer show.

TAIPEI, TAIWAN, May 28, 2010 – GIGABYTE will showcase a wide range of new technologies at Computex 2010 in Taipei, Taiwan. From June 1st to June 5th, the IT manufacturer will exhibit the latest gear and highlight the benefits that end-users can expect.

The newly released GA-X58A-UD9 motherboard shows GIGABYTE’s innovative approach to research and development. The new flagship motherboard is considered the most premium motherboard available on the market and already owns numerous overclocking and benchmark world records.

In addition to the Intel-based GA-X58A-UD9, GIGABYTE will release the 800 series motherboards powered by AMD 870, 880GX, 890FX and 890GX chipsets. These new motherboards will support the latest high-end AMD Phenom II X6 six-core processors.

GIGABYTE has also added a new premium graphics card to its product lineup for Computex 2010. The GV-R587SO-1GD is based on the ATI Radeon HD 5870 GPU and was designed specifically for extreme overclocking and gaming battles. The Ultra Durable VGA+ components offer excellent performance and stability during heavy loading.

On the notebook front GIGABYTE has set itself apart by releasing a new ultra lightweight 14-inch notebook called the M1405. In addition to stylish looks, this innovative product also includes a docking station with a built-in Nvidia GeForce 220 graphics card. Users will enjoy the ease of portability when on the go and powerful HD graphics performance when connected to the Booktop docking station.

Another unique component to be shown at Computex 2010 is the Monitor Integrated Box, or MIB for short. It is a computer chassis that includes an adjustable mounting arm with hinge which allows technology enthusiasts to build their very own All-in-One PC.
