Computex 2022: The best hardware – Ryzen 7000, PCIe 5.0 SSDs, 500 Hz display etc.
Computex 2022 took place for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic with visitors from all over the world – we present you the “Best in Show” hardware.
Computex 2022: Best in Show
Computex 2022 took place this year as a hybrid trade fair. The performance show for PC hardware was able to shine with important market launches such as AMD’s CPU series Ryzen 7000, the fastest SSDs in the world with PCIe 5.0 connection, the first gaming monitor with a refresh rate of incredible 500 Hertz and QD-OLED technology . From our point of view, these are the most innovative products at Computex 2022:
AMD Ryzen 7000: Best in Show CPU
Best in Show: AMD Ryzen 7000 for socket AM5
AMD announces an increase in single-core performance of more than 15 percent with the Ryzen 7000 processors based on the Zen 4 architecture. The CPU series with clock rates of up to 5.5 GHz comes in the new socket AM5 and brings PCI Express 5.0 and DDR5 memory for AMD CPUs for the first time. AMD also integrates the RDNA 2 CPU graphics ex works. And the mainboard manufacturers are celebrating the new chipsets AMD X670(E) and B650, which should ensure fresh sales. Here you can find detailed information about the AMD Ryzen 7000.
Asus ROG Swift 500Hz: Best in Show 1080p Gaming Monitor
The first 500 Hertz monitor that could be admired at Computex 2022 comes from Asus: The ROG Swift 500Hz has a Full HD resolution and uses a particularly responsive E-TN panel. In addition to a G-Sync module, the 24-incher also has a Reflex Latency Analyzer from Nvidia on board, which can be used to read out the system latency and show it on the display. Here is contribution_id link 2661947 detailed information about the Asus ROG Swift 500Hz
Corsair Voyager a1600: Best in Show Laptop
With the slogan “Game.Create. Anywhere.” Corsair markets its first Voyager a1600 laptop. As far as gaming is concerned, Corsair is big: the 240 Hertz fast 16-inch display has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. The high refresh rate should deliver correspondingly fast FPS with the AMD combination of Radeon RX 6800M and either the Ryzen 7 6800HS or Ryzen 9 6900HS. Depending on the equipment, up to 64 GB DDR5 RAM and a WLAN module with the current standard Wi-Fi 6E are installed.
The special features of the gaming and production notebook include the customizable S-Key shortcut keys, which can be programmed via Elgato’s Stream Deck software. The mechanical keyboard uses flat Cherry MX switches and has per-key RGB lighting. An array of four microphones in the 1080p webcam is said to provide very good noise cancellation. Corsair also steps on the gas with the connections: 2x Thunderbolt 3 with USB 4 functionality and 1x USB-C (3.2 Gen 2).
MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED: Best in Show 1440p Gaming Monitor
Ultra-wide monitors with a large screen diagonal are perfect for the solo experience in action role-playing games. The first gaming screen from MSI with a Quantum Dot QLED panel is ideal for this. With the 175 Hertz fast MSI MEG 342C QD-OLED, gamers can benefit from the great image quality of a QLED panel without having to forego high refresh rates – Dell has its technically comparable model
yes already presented at the beginning of the year. The curved screen (1800R) from MSI has a resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels (UWQHD) and, in addition to numerous gaming functions such as cross hair and ambient lighting, also integrates a practical KVM switch.
SSDs with PCI Express 5.0 from Apacer & Zadak: Best in Show SSDs

SSDs with PCIe 5.0 have twice the bandwidth of up to 32 gigatransfers per second compared to their 4.0 colleagues. The first two PCIe 5.0 SSDs Apacer AS2280F5 and TWSG5 from the in-house gaming brand Zadak are correspondingly fast with up to 13,000 and 12,000 MB/s respectively for sequential reading and writing. Gamers in particular should benefit from the high speed, since Windows 11 can make full use of DirectStorage via the API, for example when loading game saves and high-resolution textures. However, the heat development of the fast SSDs also increases, so that massive heat sinks are probably absolutely necessary for stable operation. Here is beitrag_id link 2662109 detailed information about the PCIe 5.0 SSDs.
Gigabyte Aorus Project Stealth: Best in Show platform
Best in Show: Gigabyte Aorus Project Stealth
No more cables in sight: With the “Aorus Stealth” project, Gigabyte is launching an assembly kit on the market. With the Z690 AORUS Elite Stealth, this includes a mainboard whose connections Gigabyte has rotated 90 degrees on the side or installed directly on the back. Together with the graphics card – whose PCIe power connector points downwards – and the housing, cabling that is no longer visible from the front is possible (see image above).
Geil EVO V RGB: Best in Show RAM
Actively cooled main memory modules with up to 6600 MHz: In order to tickle even more speed out of DDR5 bars, Geil is presenting its EVO V RGB RAM series with two integrated mini fans at Computex. The rotors should ensure up to 45 percent better cooling of the RAM chips. The massive headspreaders provide additional cooling. It is still unclear how high the noise level of the small fans will be.
Air circulation within the modules of the RAM series Geil EVO V RGB
By supporting the current Intel XMP 3.0 profile, the modules should also be suitable for automatic overclocking. In addition, buyers should also be able to change the settings themselves. GEIL specifies the maximum clock rate that can be achieved by overclocking as 6,600 MHz. The RGB lighting supports the standards Asus Aura Sync, Asrock Polychrome, Gigabyte RGB Fusion 2.0 and MSI Mystic Light.
