I didn’t attend Computex this year, and that was sad for everything but my budget, because there was a ton of cool stuff announced at the show. Dell, HP and Lenovo showed off new designs that were both attractive and compelling. Mixed-reality headsets hit; based on Intel and Microsoft technology, they were far more affordable than the strong virtual reality stuff already in market. New core wars broke out, as AMD’s 16 Core Threadripper was challenged by Intel’s 18 core i9. It seems that gaming was huge at Computex this year.
