From this time in Computex 2016, thereality and technology have changed, previously carried out by the componentsof the system has gradually changes from the past, consumers concerned aboutthe effectiveness of a single components have been gradually decline, and thesoftware there are only few killer applications, and the demand of hardwareperformance also decline, but this year personalized Modding and eSports peripheralsare booming in the event.

ModdingIs a Trend
Due to computing performance has beenreaching surplus, and the main chipsets has integrated, focusing on the topicof performance has been gradually making it difficult for consumers arouse theinterest.

As a result of the VR hardware is difficult to obtain,the demand of high performance PC for utilization, and the content is stillinsufficient, VR is only for attract the visitor to stop by, even thenon-related manufacturers are using VR in their booth.


We have visited all the booths in Computex2016 for reporting the new technology and product, in fact, there are only few innovativeproducts and application, and the vast majority of resources, resulting in manysmall size companies are difficult to survival. In addition, because theunderlying functionality has been almost integrated, except for a small changein the appearance of the product, it is not much difference between theminstead, but Modding is more likely to attract the visitor as XFastest continuepromoting Modding.
