While most companies have been showing off the new dual GPU 7950GX2 cards (expect a review on my return from Computex), some have chosen to put emphasis on more unique products.

PixelView were showing off this particular card that works only with the Intel 965 (Broadwater) chipset , giving additional HDMI and HDCP support – excellent for media PCs.

MSI was displaying this machine, which is two Core 2 Duo machines running off a single power supply. They are both using passive heatsinks, with a single 120mm fan powering them both. I’m not sure this has any real commercial value, but it does at least demonstrate how much cooler Core 2 Duo is than NetBurst.

Over on the Asus stand, this particular machine caught my eye – in more ways than one. Obviously there is the fact we have two 7600 GTs in SLI, both being passively cooled. But most interestingly is that this is running a Presler-XE-1066 processor using the new nForce 5 for Intel chipset.
