SITEX 2006 - Ground Zero

AMD's Booth

SITEX 2006

Renowned for its strong emphasis on technology education via themed segments in addition to strong support from retailers and vendors year after year, SITEX 2006 promises to bring you closer to new products, online services and a glimpse of tomorrow's digital technology today. A key highlight that separates SITEX from all other local tech events is the variety of products and services it hosts and here's what we saw.

AMD's Booth

The AMD booth at Sitex this year heavily focused on the new dual-core Turion mobile processors. AMD's booth was also a launchpad for many new Turion 64 X2 notebooks.

AMD and Hewlett-Packard also had displays setup for some gaming fun and the announcement of their joint sponsorship of Team Zenith, the DOTA champions of 2006 CAPL seasons.

Team Zenith was on site to show off their skills in DOTA.
