Altech Computers are sponsoring a gaming event on the 26th of February in Sydney. This event called the ABIT Fatal1ty GamingEvent will be showcasing new technologies with vendors such as ABIT and Corsair using it to launch new and upcoming technologies. More info here.

ASUS announced their P5 motherboard series provides complete driver support for 64-bit computing. All of the ASUS P5 Series is Intel EM64T ready, meaning the 600 series CPU of the P5 motherboard is able to run new 64-bit code and access larger amounts of memory. More info here.

ATI recently announced the introduction of RADEON® XPRESS 200M - the industry's first integrated PCI Express DirectX 9 chipset for AMD (NYSE: AMD) processor-based notebook PCs. More info here.

Corsair announced DDR2 SO-DIMMS for Mobile Intel 915 Express systems. All three parts are included in Corsair’s Value Select family of desktop and laptop memory, and are guaranteed compatible with 915 Express based laptop computers. More info here.

Gigabyte released the new Neon Cooler 775 and Neon Cooler 8 Series of CPU fansinks that target discerning PC gamers who are looking for exciting visual effects combined with maximum thermal dissipation and quiet operation under extreme conditions. At first glance they look pretty conventional, but fan speed control is nice. More info in the 332KB DOC file here.

Microsoft announced a recall on over 14 million Xbox power cords. In all regions except Continental Europe, Xbox consoles manufactured before Oct. 23, 2003, require a replacement power cord. It's apparently a preventative measure. Fewer than one in 10,000 consoles have experienced these component failures, and, in almost all instances, any damage caused by these failures was contained within the console itself or limited to the tip of the power cord at the back of the console. More info here.

Raritan expanded their KVM-over-IP product line, by adding the industry’s first IP-based KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch that supports five concurrent users and up to 32 servers. More info here.

Thermaltake announced two new CPU coolers. The Beetle I think we've already seen, but the fanless Sonic Tower is new and truly gargantuan.

TwinMOS announced the mass production of high capacity Ultra-X SD card. The 66X Ultra high speed with 2GB high capacity SD card offers excellent stability with data protection. More info in the 184KB DOC file here.

X-Micro announced a new MP3 player that features a color video display: the X-Micro Video MP3 player. The pocket-sized Video MP3 plays videos or displays photos on a crystal clear color OLED display. This device also plays MP3 files, displays lyrics, receives and records FM radio, offers digital voice recording, and serves as a USB flash drive. Pretty cool, check out the product pic here and the 30KB DOC file here for more info.
