Oh yeah, it is that time of the year again! It's COMPUTEX, one of the world's largest tech fairs where the big names from the tech industry show off their latest products and technologies. The exhibition officially kicked off on Tuesday, May 30, which also happens to be the annual Dragon Boat Festival here in Taiwan. Though it is a public holiday today, that does not slow down our momentum to showing something new and awesome for this year's COMPUTEX.
Year 2017 also marks the special occasion for AORUS as the brand has become the premium gaming representation of GIGABYTE covering all bases for gamers worldwide. Started off from the gaming laptop line, AORUS now branches out further beginning this year to include motherboards, graphics cards, gaming peripherals, and more, delivering a full ecosystem of gaming products under one single brand.
Without further ado, let's take you for a quick tour around our booth at Taipei World Trade Center and check out the next generation of AORUS gaming innovation we are showcasing right here on the opening day.
Experience VR, experience the Future of Gaming
For this year, VR is still a hot topic and even emphasized by the organizer as one of main show highlights! GIGABYTE and AORUS are already leading the way in VR gaming with the introduction of racing simulator from the last time. This year AORUS takes VR back to COMPUTEX again and steps up with something much more exhilarating- the 720-degree motion simulator. We combine VR technology with the AORUS high-end, VR-capable GPU to power this bad boy.
The simulator located right in the center of the booth attracts lots of attention. Once the game begins, the participant feels as if he/she is driving a flying vehicle on a futuristic racetrack and being able to swivel and make 720-degree rotation throughout the ride. Everyone who have tried really enjoyed the experience, while some screamed for their dear life.
Team Up with AORUS. Game with AORUS
A wide spectrum of gaming hardware from AORUS are unveiled on this year's COMPUTEX show floor.
