Computex 2016: the future of computers revealed in Taipei

Share this story

Computex Taipei 2016 comes at a time when there's wider interest in the PC and computer hardware industry than there has been in many years. Taiwanese company Nvidia has just launched the GTX 1080 and 1070 GPUs amid a flurry of hype, much of which is down to the fact that you need a powerful PC to run virtual reality headsets like the Vive from compatriots HTC. VR is likely to be a major theme at this year's Computex, with HTC making an unexpected appearance after years of skipping the show. But there's a lot more going on: Intel and Microsoft have keynotes planned for the week, chip giants like Qualcomm, AMD, and ARM should all be making news, and there'll be the usual slew of products from the likes of Asus, Acer, MSI, and beyond. I'm in Taipei to bring you everything first-hand — stay tuned.
