If you are interested in knowing what your favourite brand has come up with, follow this article where we will update everything that is being showcased at Computex 2023. Here’s a complete breakdown of every brand’s showcase.

AsRock at Computex 2023

AsRock refreshes its Z790 motherboard lineup with Taichi Lite, Nova, PG Riptide WiFi7, and LiveMixer

The Z790 Taichi Lite is a new sub-brand in ASRock’s motherboard product stack. It provides the core feature set of the top Taichi, such as CPU VRM and overclocking capabilities, but tones down on the aesthetic and some I/O connectivity.

The Taichi Lite sticks with older WiFi 6E connectivity, besides a Killer 2.5 GbE + Intel 2.5 GbE wired network. The onboard audio solution is fairly slick, featuring a Realtek ALC4082 codec, an ESS Sabre 9218 DAC for the front-out, and WIMA audio capacitors.

The Z790 Phantom Gaming Nova is the most premium Phantom Gaming series motherboard in ASRock’s product stack (although below Taichi). It features a powerful CPU VRM solution, a neat, illuminated common heatsink for M.2 drives, and plenty of overclocker-friendly features. It also has a more advanced set of network connectivity than the Taichi series, with 5 GbE wired networking and the latest WiFi 7. The onboard audio is simpler, with just the ALC4082 handling all channels.

The Z790 PG Riptide WiFi7 is a mid-range motherboard that succeeds the Z790 PG Riptide WiFi. It features the latest WiFi 7 and 5 GbE wired networking, as well as the ALC1220 HDA codec. It has a 16+1+1 phase CPU VRM, compared to the 20+1+1 phase of the PG Nova and Taichi Lite.

The Z790 LiveMixer is an entry-mid segment product that features swanky-looking heatsinks for the CPU VRM, chipset, and M.2 slots. However, it does not have WLAN, only a Realtek 2.5 GbE wired networking interface, and the onboard audio solution uses the entry-level ALC897 codec. There is an M.2 E-key slot so you can add your own WLAN module.

Not only that, but AsRock also showed its new B650E motherboard, B650E Taichi Lite for AMD Zen 4 processor. It features a robust CPU VRM similar to the X670E Taichi and includes WiFi 6E for fast wireless connectivity, Killer 2.5 GbE wired networking for high-speed internet, and the identical onboard audio solution found in the Z790 Taichi Lite.

MSI at Computex 2023

MSI shows off its upcoming RTX 4060 models

MSI displayed their upcoming RTX 4060 Gaming X graphics card at Computex 2023. Along with TorX Fan 5.0, the RTX 4060 Gaming X introduces an entirely new compact generation Gaming X Twin Frozr 9 cooling system.

Given that the RTX 4060’s TGP is just 109 W, the cooler appears to be enough for the task. The company’s cost-effective RTX 4060 custom design, the RTX 4060 Ventus 2X, appears to use an aluminium monoblock heatsink and two TorX 4.0 fans to ventilate the card’s cooler.

Cooler Master at Computex 2023

Cooler Master Showcases New PSUs including one that is fanless

Cooler Master has showcased a couple of new power supplies (PSUs) at Computex 2023, including the X Silent series Max which is a “fanless” PSU. The X Silent series Max PSUs are “near-silent” and feature a low-speed RGB fan that keeps noise levels at 20 dB. They are available in models up to 1300W and use a single-piece heat dissipation structure.

The X Silent series Edge PSUs are completely fanless and feature a special airflow-improving extended fan cover, vapour chamber technology, and the same single-piece heat dissipation structure. They are available in models up to 750W.

Both X Series PSUs are ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0 compliant and come with 12VHPWR cables. They also support Cooler Master’s MasterControl software, which allows users to monitor temperature, current load, and overall performance.

In addition to the new PSUs, Cooler Master also unveiled new 12VHPWR cables with a 90-degree angle. These cables should prevent unnecessary bending and feature an upgraded connector design with double springs and thicker wire. This should improve performance and reduce connector temperatures by 5 degrees.

Cooler Master has not yet announced pricing or availability for the new PSUs or cables. However, they are expected to be released sometime in the near future.
