Following on from yesterday’s report at the show we have the highlights of Cebit 2009 Day 2 featuring companies such as Silverstone, Asus and Zotac (With something rather special that isn’t a graphics card or motherboard).

At this year's show Gainward were showing off their range of ATI and Nvidia graphics cards and they have already updated the GTS 250 to include a new cooler and more attractive PCB. Also on show were two systems showing 3D technology. One based on Nvidia hardware, the other on ATI.

Silverstone's booth was one of the more interesting locations at this year’s show with a selection of impressive compact cases on display. The idea behind most of these was to prove that it is possible to fit a high spec system into a small, attractive chassis without any real compromise. One m-ATX system even had watercooling installed. Also on show was their new 1500W PSU, alongside a rather lovely 2.5inch drive enclosure.

Packard Bell
Packard Bell’s stand featured two gamer/enthusiast related product lines branded iPower. The first was a desktop which features a case that really stands out from most other manufacturers and the second a Blu-Ray enabled gaming laptop range containing GeForce 9800M chipset. Additionally both systems feature high specification components such as Core i7(Desktop) and Centrino 2(Notebook). Also on show was the latest in their Easynote range for those who require a more portable system.

Acer had a number of high style items on show such as their Ferrari F22 LCD screen and 12.1 inch laptop with the same branding. Another impressive item was their Blu-Ray laptop with 18 inch screen. Apparently the design department was on holiday when the enthusiast desktop chassis was created.
