A montage of some of the coolest gadgets at one of the happiest hunting grounds for tech-geeks, Computex 2010, that just concluded in neon-vivid Taipei. We've tried to categorize them, but it was a veritable explosion of applied computer science. Stay tuned for Part 2!

ZOTAC: The brand that has risen through the ranks, once a minnow, now regarded worldwide – they really make some superb graphics cards The card we’ve all been waiting for, but are yet to see – superb cooling meets an over-clocked GTX 480.

This system is housed in a transparent chassis and is meant to showcase Biostar’s P55 offering along with Intel’s new Core i7 875K CPU with unlocked multiplier – the first such CPU for the P55 (LGA 1156) platform. This CPU was quite the rage at the Computex, and at least nine motherboard vendors had it on display.
And the shocker…Intel’s upcoming LGA 1155 chipset in Biostar’s TH67XE – the platform that will house the yet unseen CPUs codenamed “Sandy Bridge”
