What does the future of hardware components look like? Computex 2014 identified some interesting innovations in computing hardware that could very well transform data center technologies in the coming years.

Here is a list of the best of hardware that will be used in many modernization initiatives.

Computex 2014 Gives Technologists a Peek Into the FutureIntel’s chips go that extra mile: Intel launched its Devil’s Canyon series of quad-core processor chips. These chips have processing clocks in the range of 3.5 to 4 Gigahertz. Intel has also introduced a new “Polymer Thermal Interface Material” to complement the new series of high frequency processors.

Asus antennas: The latest in routers is from Asus, which is the RT-AC3200 that can have as many as six antennas. This router is software-enabled to provide the most sophisticated of WiFi connections with superior speed in the range of 1.3 Gbps.

SanDisk goes for SSD durability: SanDisk has worked hard to improve the durability of its drives, so much so that the new drives come with a 10 year warranty. The Extreme Pro SSD product offers sequential read/write speed of 550MBps/ 520 MBps respectively.

Unified cables from DockPort: As the name suggests, the next generation successor to the hugely successful DisplayPort is the new one cable solution called DockPort. This new cable can simultaneously merge three wires for video, USB and power into one.

Crucial goes all out for DDR4 Memory: A significant breakthrough in the memory industry is the latest Ballistix Elite DDR4 Memory from Crucial. The DDR4 promises 40 percent more power savings as compared to the DDR3. This new memory kit will be available in sizes ranging from 32GB to 8GB and speeds ranging from 2666MHz to 3000 MHz.

Finally, Intel dreams of an absolutely wireless PC: This sleek PC that looks forward to a launch in 2016 is slated to have not even a single wire coming out from it. Every single feature such as charging, display and data transfer is done in true blue wireless style making this on the A list of every technology evangelist.
