New Adata SSD and DDR3 Products on show at Computex 2014
Chris Hadley / 3 years ago
As our tour of Computex comes to an end, we still have a few highlights to show you from the ADATA stand. Recently we took a look at their new line of DDR4 memory which is scheduled to become available possibly towards the end of this year. Coming down to a current level and looking at what they have in the DDR3 range, we find an In-Win D-Frame chassis sat on its side with a few ADATA storage goodies tucked inside.
Gaming orientated memory is what is pushing much of the consumer market forward, even though DDR4 is on the door-step. In ADATA’s case we are looking at the XPG line of products, with a third generation of their memory on show here. Running at 2933MHz in this 16GB demo setup, these modules are available in a variety of colours to suit the tastes of any enthusiast user when building a new colour coordinated rig.
Taking a closer peek at the Gigabyte board which is driving this setup we find an M.2 drive hidden away. If you recall from our coverage at CES, we found this drive on show in its prototype stage with a heatsink attached to the drive controller to keep it cool under the collar. As we can now see, ADATA have managed to tame the SP900’s thermals. Available in capacities ranging from 128GB and up to 512GB, the SP900 with its SandForce controller is capable of delivering read and write speeds of up to 550MB/s and 530MB/s respectively. Stay tuned as I’m looking to get one of these new drives in for review in the coming weeks.
Taking a look back at our ADATA coverage from this years CES once again, you may recall that we saw both of the drive below that were then in their Prototype stages. Available in capacities of up to 1TB on the SP910 and 2TB on the SX930, ADATA are one of the industries leaders when it comes to taking SSD storage to the next level. As we see the M.2 era come more and more into play, there is hope that the cost of SATA based SSDs on the higher end of the capacity scale will start to drop down in price, much like drives up to 512GB have done over the last few months.
