One of the finest places to find cutting-edge technology is at tech expos, and one of the biggest is Computex 2023 in Taiwan. After all, several of the greatest tech companies in the world, like Asus, Acer, and TSMC, have headquarters there.
Therefore, you should check out the top new technology at Computex 2023 if you want a glimpse of the future.
NVIDIA Ultra Low Motion Blur 2
Games are increasingly delivering high refresh rates due to the increased power of graphic cards and computers. To make use of this power, many monitors can now produce refresh rates as high as 360Hz.
We are, however, running into certain physical limitations as a result of the high speeds involved, notably the pixel response time, or the amount of time it takes for one pixel to change colour. This word, which is distinct from refresh rate, is one of the display specs that causes the most confusion.
Even at a 1ms GtG, our eyes can detect colour changes in pixels. Images that are moving quickly appear blurry while using this effect. Therefore, you need monitor refresh rates of at least 500Hz to produce razor-sharp edges on items moving swiftly across the screen.
However, Ultra Low Motion Blur 2, or ULMB 2, from NVIDIA altered this. Every time your display refreshes, you can reduce the likelihood of blurry images by turning off the monitor's backlight.
With the help of this technology, your screen's edges will all remain sharp even at high refresh rates. Even more impressively, NVIDIA demonstrated how its ULMB 2 technology could provide crisper visuals on a 120Hz panel than on a 480Hz one without it.
NVIDIA's Avatar Cloud Engine (ACE)
Machines may now understand us through natural language processing and react in a similar way thanks to generative AI. However, as of now, most users of this technology are AI chatbots like ChatGPT, Bing AI, and Bard.
NVIDIA ACE comes into play as AI technology advances and is used in more consumer-focused applications, such as gaming. With the use of AI technology, this feature enables game creators to create NPCs (what is an NPC? ), which can interact with players in a human-like manner.
We are no longer constrained to selecting particular answers to in-game characters thanks to NVIDIA ACE. Instead, we can communicate with them directly and anticipate rational responses from them.
Asus GPU Power Connector Concept
Today, a lot of mid-range and high-end GPUs need an external hookup because of how much power they consume. For instance, the RTX 4090 uses the 12VHPWR connector to directly access power from the PSU because it consumes 600 watts while operating at max power.
As proven by the Nvidia RTX 4090 MeltGate in late 2022, however, this power connector makes it less aesthetically pleasing while creating a PC and a source of failure. Asus came up with a fix by positioning the power connector close to the PCIe pins on the GPU.
Therefore, the GPU receives power directly from your motherboard through special pins on the GPU and a power socket on the motherboard near its PCIe slot, as opposed to plugging in an external power cable.
An RTX 4070 prototype without an external cable was displayed by Asus. However, unless Asus licences it to other manufacturers, this implies that in order to use this, you must have a motherboard and GPU bearing the Asus trademark.
Arm's Next-Generation SoCs
You're undoubtedly eagerly anticipating the release of the following Snapdragon, Exynos, Dimensity, or Tensor SoC if you enjoy using Android handsets. However, you might not be aware that Arm is the company that creates all of these processors and that companies like Qualcomm, Samsung, MediaTek, and Google employ its technologies.
As a result, you can now see what the upcoming generation of high-end smartphone SoCs will look like thanks to Arm's announcement of its next-generation CPU, the Cortex-X4, and GPU, the Immortalis-G720. We anticipate that this new innovation will increase performance while using less power, improving the efficiency of smartphones of the future.
In addition, Arm introduced the Arm Total Compute Solutions 2023 (TCS23), which enables chip manufacturers and designers to collaborate directly with Arm when creating their own systems.
Although the consumer may not notice much of a difference right now, this could lower the cost and increase the effectiveness of newer processors. This results in electrical gadgets that are more reasonably priced and function well together.
Frore AirJet and the Future of Cooling
Whenever we talk about cooling, we typically picture air coolers with enormous radiators, large fans, and heatsinks. As a result, we frequently think of high-performance devices as being big, air-flow-dependent machines.
Frore Systems, however, made the decision to redesign the fan. Smaller and thinner devices might operate more quickly thanks to the AirJet technology, which enables cooling without taking up much room.
Because it can provide high-velocity air jets with a device no larger than an adult thumb, no thinner than two pennies stacked together, and with no apparent moving parts, the business refers to its technology as a solid-state thermal solution.
With this, we can increase the performance of portable devices, such as smartphones, without having to worry about CPU or GPU thermal throttling.
Streacom SG10 Fanless Gaming Case
Despite using smaller, quieter fans, Frore AirJet still generates some noise. Choose a totally passive cooling solution if you wish to experience true silence. So at Computex, Streacom unveiled the SG10 Fanless Gaming PC Case. This case can remove heat from your components since it employs a heat loop rather than a heat pipe.
It transfers thermal energy away from your CPU and GPU and towards the enormous heat sinks at the top of the chassis using the natural processes of evaporation and condensation. It can theoretically cool a 13th-generation Intel Core i9 or 7000-series AMD Ryzen 9 as well as an NVIDIA RTX 4080 or AMD Radeon 7900XTX as Streacom claims it can cool up to 600W.
Furthermore, in a room with a 20–25°C ambient temperature, the heat sink doesn't go hotter than 55°C. So even though it might be warm, if you mistakenly touch it, it shouldn't burn you.
A Glimpse of What's Coming to PCs, Smartphones, and More
Expos like Computex allow us to glimpse the technology that will be available in the following six to twelve months. The computer technologies that we have seen thus far may not seem like much to the average consumer, but as manufacturers adopt them and incorporate them into products for end users, they will have a significant impact on our lives.
However, you should keep an eye out for other events like the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona if you want to see consumer-facing innovations.
