They allow you to read between the lines about Kepler. And i would i would say is what they hope for and what they get might not be totally aligned. (<<how's that for PR-speak?)
In other words, if everything goes well, it will be fairly soon. If not, then H1
Oh yeah. i got to talk about Tegra 3 at great length. They didn't mind pointing out that they had hoped it would be out earlier but had to coordinate more than they expected with their partners. I am totally interested in mobile computing as it finally looks like it will work well fully integrated with a Windows PC (and your TV and everything else).
i got to also meet with the ViaSat people. Their satellite service finally responds like good fiber optic for the first time ever. So i am going to evaluate it for ABT compared to my current WildBlue (which i used to hate but now just dislike) sometime early March when it is available in my area. It's about the same price with more options, and about 5x faster. VOIP is finally workable for home satellite Internet.
Also, i met with EVGA - had to wait 45 minutes but it was a good short meeting. Their own EVGA commercial displays an ABT award for the GTX 560 Ti 448 FTW. They have a new completely new power supply line that i will be able to review and of course the new cards as they come out.
AMD - it was good to see them again and actually get to talk with them face-to-face; last time was the Press event in LA that covered the 6000 series launch. This time i got a look at their upcoming Trinity mobile processor that has the same performance with half the power usage. And i made sure that we would follow up next week to talk about what is happening in the tech forums. It is hard to concentrate on anything besides the product in the short time available for the briefing. And it is important to meet face to face as it is the most real form of communication that we have. After that, it can continue by phone and email/
Cooler Master is having their 20th anniversary and they gave the press some nice gifts. Thye offered me a limo ride back to CES which i gladly accepted. i doubt in 2-1/ days that i spent a total of 4 hours on the floors of CES looking at the exhibits. i didn't even see AMD's booth. All i did was run from appointment to appointment from dawn to dusk - and i skipped the parties.
It was great talking with Thermaltake and Kingston. i never got to really connect with the Intel rep but did get a nice breakfast sandwich at 7AM for attending their press conference . . . and much more will be in the article. Genius has some interesting products as they also try to break into gaming. i am going to check out ViewSonic displays and emphasize 120Hz and 3D including HD3D.
Maybe i can publish the CES article tomorrow.
