Jan. 16, 2013 - More than 30,000 attendees flocked to Xi3 Corporation's booth at the 2013 International CES trade show last week. Even before CES 2013 officially opened to visitors a week ago on Tuesday, January 8, Xi3 announced a new development stage system called Piston that was optimized for computer gameplay on large high-definition monitors. Xi3 also unveiled two new products at CES 2013, including its previously announced X7A Modular Computer (Xi3's first power-user computer, a quad-core machine), and a paperback-sized general use machine known as the Z3RO Pro Computer, a dual-core computer. Both new computers are slated for general availability in the second quarter of 2013.
Xi3 hauled in multiple awards and accolades for its newly announced Piston development stage gaming system, including:Popular Mechanics Editors Choice Award Popular Science Product of the Future Award IGN.com Best of CES Award (Best PC) Men's Health Coolest Tech at CES 2013 Digital Trends Best of CES: Gaming TechRadar's Best New Products from CES 2013 "There's no question about it—this was Xi3's best year ever at CES," Founder, President and CEO Jason A. Sullivan said. "We had more visitors at our booth, generated more news coverage and won more awards than ever at a single trade show. Clearly, the world is excited about the prospect of modular computing solutions and Xi3's foray into gaming because they know if our softball-sized systems can handle the latest and greatest in computer games, then they can handle anything. This year 2013 is going to huge for Xi3 and modular computing."
