USC-TC "X-Rigs"  2011

University of San Carlos - Technological Center and Datalogics Society Group (Department of Computer Science) are proud to present to you:


What is this:
It is a Computer showroom/expo showcasing different people's computer
set-up. These rigs ranges from the mid-end up to the high-end computers.
Modded Rigs will also be showcased.

Why do we need to showcase: In order to show the
people/non-enthusiasts how technology is improving with the help of high
computing preferences. Basically, we are speaking of desktop and mobile
PC's.

How do we do it: 3D games prove to be the best benchmarking
software for the locals when it comes to product comparison. We allow
the audience to have a feel/taste of how the games run at mid - ultra
high settings. By doing this, we can help them decide on what kind of PC
parts are suitable for their specific attributes.

What about LAN Games: Definitely we will be having LAN games (LAN
party) so that the user (audience) and his pal can enjoy the game and
talk about it after the event. Playing LAN games at your desired
settings will create the degree of reality and enjoyment of your gaming
time.

When will this event happen:FEBRUARY 4. (FINAL)

Who are qualified to join:
Anyone as long as you think your rig
rocks! Remember all we need is mid to high end. If you are unsure if you
are qualified just post your specs here and I will decide. Gaming
laptops and modded PC's are definitely qualified.

Size of Monitors: Maximum size is 100 inch while minimum size is 10 inch.

Location: University of San Carlos - Technological Center (Nasipit, Talamban) Bunzel Lobby (a.k.a Engineering Lobby)

Why start the thread so early:
Because the chosen date is a Friday not a weekend,starting this thread early gives you time to ask your boss for a leave.

HOW TO JOIN: Entry formswill be given to you thru e-mail or hot
links. Submit it to me on the scheduled meeting. No forms no entry. Jost
post post here if you want to join.

Who is in charge of this: ME (blizzaga4)

COMDDAP 2010 (Cebu Expo).. This is I.T. !!!

COMDDAP 2010 (Cebu Expo).. This is I.T. !!!

COMDDAP (Computer Manufacturers
Distributors and Dealers Association of the Philippines) is an
association of the country's top information technolgy
businesses. Its primary objective is to promote the
sustainable development of the of the country's information
technology industry through voluntary collaboration of its
member companies. It is the goal of COMDDAP to be able to
provide its members general views and updates from different
sectors - private and government, and highly regarded individuals
to further uplift the morale and knowledge of its
organization.

The vision of promoting and
elevating the standards of Information technology (IT) in
the Philippines fueled a group of prominent computer
companies to form the Computer Distributors and Dealers
Association of the Philippines or COMDDAP. Its initial
member-companies represent the world's leading makers and
providers of computer products, solutions and peripherals.

COMDDAP
counts among its achievements the holding of the Annual
COMDDAP exhibit, more popularly known as the COMDDAP EXPO,
which has become a consistent crowd drawer and has in
itself set new records in terms of the quality of exhibit
area, exhibitors, visitors, and venues. In fact, COMDDAP
EXPO in 1999 marked the first exhibit to have adapted an
upgraded booth shell schemes

The annual COMDDAP
endeavor encourages its participants to launch their
products and services, as well as hold seminars with a
variety of topics in the areas of technology, trends,
applications, and information management.

COMDDAP's biggest leap was being able to cross boarders or
go regional by bringing the exposition down south in Cebu
and Davao City, and to even greater heights in the cities
of Baguio and Naga, and most recently, in Iloilo City.
