ComputeX in Taipei, Taiwan, is one of the most important and longest-running world events dedicated to telecommunications technologies and systems, which has seen in its ten-year history the rise of ideas that then changed the world. This year the absolute protagonist is artificial intelligence, which has entered all the new products launched this year.
The golden age of artificial intelligence
The CEO and founder of Nvidia, Jensen Huang, during his keynote on the eve of the event, announcing the new products, said that generative artificial intelligence is leading us into a new era of information technology where we can all become developers. “ComputeX began with PCs and now we are here, with artificial intelligence. Precisely for this reason we have chosen as the motto of this year’s edition: ‘Together We Create, Together We Create’ – James explains to Sky TG24 microphones Huang, president of TAITRA, which organizes ComputeX. – Artificial intelligence has gone beyond all imagination, it generates scripts, designs and even music. We as human beings have a partner with whom to create and communicate between different sectors. Together with AI we accelerate innovation and redefine new technologies. AI is the golden opportunity for the computer industry”, says the president of TAITRA. Nvidia is well aware that it is a golden age, which thanks to artificial intelligence has reached the very restricted club of companies with a capitalization of a trillion dollars.
The news from Acer
Among the tech giants showing their new products to the public is Acer, a Taiwanese company, which expands its eco-friendly Vero line with the laptop Acer Aspire Vero 15 and showed the new Predator Triton 16, the ideal notebook for both gaming and work. Visitors to his pavilion were also able to experience SpatialLabs technology by immersing themselves in Acer’s 3D experience without the need for glasses.
The main announcements from Asus and MSI
The other Taiwanese player in the computer world Asus has presented to the public its first portable console Rog Ally, hybrid, on which you can load both X-box games and those of other consoles. And then it launched new ROG MATRIX GeForce RTX 4090 VGA. “It’s a perfect combination of design and high performance,” ASUS Italy country manager Marco Astori tells us. The ROG Matrix RTX 4090 is the world’s first card with a liquid metal cooling solution, allowing you to keep temperatures even lower for consistently higher performance and lower noise.
There is also MSI entering the luxury gaming experience by introducing a new laptop made in collaboration with Mercedes.
An entire area of ComputeX has been dedicated to startups, the InnoVEX, which showcases the strength of local technology and the international connections that the country offers. This year InnoVEX brought 400 startups from 22 countries, including also an Italian delegation, which was visited on the opening day by the Italian Representative in Taiwan Davide Giglio, who underlined how Taiwan is a partner for Italy indispensable, “because we are increasingly present on these markets”.
