Some more boards have been spotted featuring AMD’s RD790 chipset – which supports quad-crossfire. ASUS had the M3A32-MVP Deluxe on display, supporting Socket AM2+ and PCIe 2.0. DFI also had their entry on display dubbed the LANPartyUT RD790-M2R.

Over at the Kingmax booth there is a 16GB SD card – yes that’s a whopping 16GB. “Even though this is not the first time we are hearing about 16GB SD cards, it is somewhat cool to see that a cellphone could easily have 16GB storage for pictures, video and multimedia.”
That’s it for today, as usual we’ll have updates for the next two days of the festival. Let’s hope that companies have saved the best till last.
