BlizzCon 2010 – Sneak Peak From the Show Floor
In the next few hours, we will be stopping by to talk the various hardware vendors who are here in attendance. Last year’s BlizzCon was surprisingly packed with a large amount of hardware vendors trying to show their new products to the public before the holidays and before CES 2011. We will try and not only get sexy pictures of the hardware, but talk to some of the designers and engineers. Make sure you check
As one of the premier sponsors of BlizzCon 2010 we will stop by the Intel/ASUS booth to check out the latest in 3D Vision Gaming. We understand there will be a bunch of systems on display as well as overclocking contests and workshops.
Digital Storm is here as well debuting a new system at the NVIDIA booth. We’ll take an up-close and personal look at various machines that are an enthusiast’s dream. Digital Storm’s “Mountain Mods” chassis will be on hand as well. “Mountain Mods” give you the complete freedom to add in any type of hardware combination that you want so that take virtually all the constraints away from a typical consumer computer chassis.
Antec has a fully-modded “Power Supply Super Display” using the Antec TPQ-1200 OC set up running benchmarks. We snuck on to the floor and saw some pretty intense programming already running on two LanBoy Air system – the new SoundScience 2.1 speakers great for head-to-head gaming. There is also a Los Angeles-based airbrush artist that is customizing cases on the show floor. If you are in the area, bring your rig down so that you can start your mod!
Western Digital is supposed to show their Smooth Creations gaming rig this weekend. The system will be running an SSD, VR, and Caviar Green drives. Hopefully, we will get to crack the cases on a couple of systems and check out the interior.
