    _______________

    For the last few days we have been for the most part involved in meetings with many companies so it was only this afternoon I had a chance to travel around the various booths to chat with other company executives and to oogle the lovely asian ladies. Many of the booths will not hold much of an interest to our readership but there are some that will certainly get the tech juices flowing.

    Very nice write up, but. . .doesn't "semi-naked asian ladies" need some sort of visual aid, such as a photograph?

    the best part is seeing 4 CPU's in the performance panel on the task manager :lol:

    ...god they're loud though :bleh:







    looks like fun though Allan! Do BFG, XFX, eVGA, or any of the others highlighted in the recent issuesd with factory overclocked 7900 cards have booths, by chance? I'd like to hear more on that.

    When air conditioning is on.

    I can sympathise with Zardon regarding the weather. I was in Singapore a few years back, and at night it's like you're swimming in the streets. They even have an air conditioned booth in the zoo just so people can rest there.

    Then again, I imagine that when I'm in Lansing and Chicago in late July the situation wouldn't be that much better. Summer rains and heat and humidity. Yuck.

    Guys im sorry our coverage hasnt been more indepth, we really only have been here 2 days and have been cramming in meetings with companies for virtually all that time. I have a few pictures of the asian ladies but man do they look young. not really my scene tbh.

    I also have a load of photos from the nvidia room which ill publish when I get home, right now its 7pm here, and ive a flight in the early hours of the morning, then 2 more to get home.

    Cheers !

    Bah, I think you did a great job considering all the activities you crammed into a short time Allan.
