In Pictures: Meet the future of computing - 10 killer hardware advancements from Computex 2014

From new chips to super-fast storage and amazing connectivity improvements, the future of computing was unveiled at Computex.

Crucial's Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory It's finally coming. The next-generation of RAM is due with Intel's Haswell-E enthusiast processors later this year—or, more specifically, its new X99 chipset—and memory makers are ready to hit the ground running. This week, Crucial announced its Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory modules, with twice the bandwidth and up to 40 percent power savings over today's DDR3 modules. (This being enthusiast RAM, the Ballistix Elite modules will also feature fancy custom heat spreaders nonetheless.) The first modules will ship at a whopping 2666MHz and 3000MHz, according to AnandTech.

Look for Crucial's DD4 to hit the streets in August in 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB kits, and don't be surprised if plenty of other memory makers announce competing DDR4 kits in the coming weeks.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
