Default NVISION 08: Day 1

Day one at NVISION kicked off and kept us busy from first thing in the morning until the late into the evening. Though nothing new was announced, we did manage to check out a few interesting sights, such as Jen-Hsun's keynote, exhibitor booths and more.

You can read the article here and discuss it here.

Yo yo!
Question for ya, the 2nd to last picture.... the ThermalTake chassis with the Toughpower... is that a refridge cooling unit? Is that a product that TT is displaying as a prototype, or is it an actual product?

You are right... the product is supposed to become available next month, but it's OEM-only, sadly (given it's so complex to install). Supposed to cost around $300 to the end user by the end of it all though.

They weren't testing with a Quad-Core, so it's really hard to gauge just how worthy it is. Have to wait for the reviews I think...

So what did the Mythbusters do to round off the event? No one's mentioned it anywhere...
