Our next stop at Computex this year was with ADATA, where we viewed a couple new storage devices, as well as their latest RAM memory and iOS accessories. It is exciting to see the new product releases over a variety of different markets from a single manufacturer.
First up was their new USB 3.1 Type “C” External SSD, ADATA SE 730. This drive features the reversible Type C USB 3.1 connector and is capable of 540 MB/s read and 450 MB/s write. You can expect to see this in the later part of 2015, but there is no word on pricing as of yet.
Next up on display was the SX 930 SSD, which is a 2.5″ form factor reported to reach read speeds of up to 560 MB/s and write speeds of up to 465 MB/s. This drive is expected to be available with capacities ranging from 120 GB to 480 GB and also to feature 5 years of warranty. This could be one of the better looking drives we have seen thus far.
As we saw with OCZ earlier, ADATA is also on the NVMe M.2 Train, but appears to be limiting the market to the OEM side of things. We are told that the new NVMe drive speeds reach 641 MB/s and will probably cap out at 256GB capacity.
Also being showcased was the new ADATA XPG Z2 DDR4 RAM module, designed specifically for desktop users. The memory module is a 288 pin unbuffered DIMM, available with speeds of 2133 to 3400 Mhz . It supports XMP 2.0 and is expected to be available in quantities ranging from 8 GB to 32 GB. The Z2 also features a gorgeous blue housing as part of the heatsink.
Last, but not least, was their latest iOS accessory lineup. We witnessed an SD card adapter, lightning to USB adapter, mobile battery case with built in headphones, as well as a new power bank line up. ADATA was truly busy making and adding to their already extensive mobile accessory selection, we encourage you to stay tuned for more details later on.
