8 TechNave picks from COMPUTEX 2024


If you weren't aware, COMPUTEX 2024 was held in Taipei last week. While you don't normally see smartphones at COMPUTEX, the event usually showcases many mobile devices like laptops and handheld PCs. And this year, quite a few products caught our attention.

What's interesting or not is entirely subjective, but we'd like to think our interests may align with yours. With that said, here are our 8 picks from COMPUTEX 2024.


ASUS Project DALI E Ink Cover laptop

Love personalising your stuff? In that case, you'll probably love the ASUS Project DALI E Ink Cover laptop. What's unique about this concept model is its lid, which has a full-colour e-ink display. The 12-inch 1600x1200 panel can display coloured images, allowing users to add a bit of flair to the laptop. We don't know if ASUS plans to launch a product with this feature, but it's something to look forward to.


ROG Zephyrus G16

Of course, ASUS has proper laptops that are intended for launch. One model showcased at COMPUTEX 2024 would be the latest edition of the ROG Zephyrus G16. This laptop comes in stylish white or sleek black, with a relatively compact and slim body for a 16-inch laptop. But don't let its compact look fool you because the Zephyrus G16 has an AMD Ryzen 9 AI HX 370 CPU, AMD Ryzen AI XDNA 2 NPU, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Laptop GPU inside. As you can see, it's portable and has excellent gaming performance. Probably the best combination for a gaming laptop.



ROG Ally X


If you only want something for gaming, how about the new ROG Ally X? We've covered it a few times before, but the ROG Ally successor officially appeared at COMPUTEX 2024. This time around, ASUS made quite a few important upgrades. They've doubled the battery capacity, added more RAM, switched the SSD to the M.2 2280 form factor, improved internal airflow, and more. Overall, it's a significant upgrade over its predecessor.


Samsung Odyssey OLED G8

Looking for an OLED display for work and gaming? Well, Samsung's Odyssey series displays are well-known in the market, and the company recently unveiled the latest iteration of the Odyssey OLED G8 at COMPUTEX. The new model features an NQ8 AI Gen3 processor for brighter highlights, AI-upscaled picture quality, and stunning colours. It also has a max refresh rate of 240Hz, so FPS games would look ultra-smooth.





Speaking of AI, COMPUTEX 2024 had many products with some AI implementation. One is the MSI MEG Vision X AI, a desktop PC with AI features. The PC's AI Engine can optimise hardware settings based on your activities and use AI to execute different functions. Another cool feature is the 1080x1920 resolution touchscreen on the front of the PC's chassis. This screen can display stats like the PC's temperature and launch selected apps or toggle certain functions with a quick touch.


MSI Claw 8 AI+

The other MSI product that caught our eye is the MSI Claw 8 AI+. If you recall, MSI just launched the MSI Claw A1M in March, so the company is quite new to the gaming handheld space. Fortunately, the new model won't be out for a while, so don't feel bad if you already got the first model. Anyway, the MSI Claw 8 AI+ is definitely an upgrade. It features a larger 8-inch display, a new Intel Core Ultra 200 Lunar Lake processor, and the Intel Xe2 GPU. It also boasts a larger 80Wh battery, significantly increasing the time you can game on it.

Zotac Zone

ASUS and MSI weren't the only ones with handheld PCs at COMPUTEX since Zotac had one too. The Zotac Zone is like Valve's Steam Deck OLED, as it also has an OLED display. This 7-inch screen supports 1080p resolution, up to 800 nits of brightness, and a 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, an AMD Ryzen 7 8840 APU with AMD Radeon 780M graphics ensures it can handle most games. It also has 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage. This could be an option if you want an alternative to the Steam Deck OLED.


Acer SpatialLabs Eyes

The last one on this list is a device you normally won't expect from a PC brand. The Acer SpatialLabs Eyes is a small camera made for 3D creation. According to Acer, it lets you take 3D photography, perform life-like 3D streaming, and other forms of 3D content. Feature-wise, it has two 8MP cameras, a built-in selfie mirror, a built-in stereo mic, a touchscreen display, and supports micro SD cards. Acer also announced several developer tools and apps for 3D creators.
