Sankar Kiruba, marketing manager for FIC Group, is a bit of a Gitex veteran, and could be blamed for feeling just a little bit jaded with turning up to Gitex every year: Kiruba is the complete opposite, however, and claims that he could not be more excited about participating in what he believes could be FIC’s most rewarding Gitex experience of the last few years.

The company has just unveiled an impressive lineup of new motherboards, graphics cards and, for the first time, a tablet PC mobile device.

“Probably the most significant news we have to announce is that we have just signed a deal with ATI to produce graphics cards,” said Kiruba. “This is massive for us, as ATI doesn't just sign anyone up: they are very particular about who they do business with.”

FIC’s 1st Graphics is a series of cutting-edge Grpahics Cards which includes the well-known ATI Radeon: advantages include the highest standards of 3D frame rate performance, 3D feature set, DVD decoding technology and advanced 3D animation.

The stand's other highlight is the company’s new AquaPad. This compact handheld Internet appliance is based around the Transmeta Crusoe processor, with Mobile Linux OS and 64 MB of SDRAM.

“We are aiming this new product at those organisations who perhaps have a workforce that is focused on external work in the field: places like hotels, hospitals and the like, who need real mobility,” said Kiruba. “Although Linux has been used, we intend to release a version with Windows CE, as that is more appropriate for this region.”

Also of interest on the stand is FIC’s latest addition to its next generation of high performance sleek and slim PCs: the S1815A.
Using an Intel 815E chipset, this powerful machine runs an Intel FC-PGA PIII CPU up to 1.13 GHz and is enhanced by Intel’s advanced ICH2 controller hub. In addition to these new products, the VC11 and VC31 mother boards are also worth a look: both support Pentium 4.
