A new report from a Taiwanese media outlet claims that some major PC- and PC component-makers are planning to withdraw from the annual Computex event this year. They may cite the current public health crisis as their reason for doing so, despite the fact the show has been postponed for this very reason.

The normal yearly staple industry showcase Computex has already been pushed back from its original scheduled June 2020 time-slot to September, due to the then-burgeoning Covid-19 pandemic. However, it seems the event may now see even greater adversity. DigiTimes claims that numerous big players in this business will cancel their presence at the show due to any lingering public health risks.

According to the outlet, these companies include 3 important chipmakers: Intel, AMD and NVIDIA. They may be joined in this withdrawal by companies from different areas such as Chaintech, Elitegroup Computer Systems and TUL.

Furthermore, MSI has also reportedly pulled out of an appearance at Computex 2020, although Asus has stated that it still intends to participate. DigiTimes has claimed that the OEMs now planning to do the opposite may host the launches of products they had slated for an intro at this conference online instead. Therefore, they may join other companies such as Apple and TSMC in such virtual events this year.
