We continue our CES adventures by meeting up with Adata. On display in their suite was a variety of products, but their emphasis this year at CES was enterprise storage and consumer memory solutions.
First up on display was the latest memory solution with two new flavours of their XPG lineup with white and titanium DDR4 memory modules. Accompanied with this was the new LED lit XPG Dazzle. The XPG Dazzle will support clock speeds from 2400 to 3200 MHz and densities from 4 to 16GB. It will come in Gold/Titanium and Red/Titanium. Both of these are early on in their lifespan and have not been released for sale as of yet, but we can expect to see more details around Computex, where Adata is known for larger product releases.
Also on display was enterprise and OEM storage solutions, with a prototype 2.5″ form factor 3D NAND SSD at 2TB in capacity, as well as a M.2 PCIe SSD. The SR1020SP is a PCIe Gen 3×4 2.5″ form factor SSD that includes a Marvell controller. It features MLC NAND, NVMe and read performance up to 2.9 GB/s and write performance up to 1.3 GB/s.
The IM2P33880 is a M.2 PCIe Gen3x4 SSD controlled with a Silicon Motion controller and will come in both 3D and Planar NAND flavours. This SSD is supported by NVMe and read performance can reach up to 1500 MB/s and write performance can reach up to 800 MB/s. There is no MSRP for both of these products, nor is there any expectation that a consumer version of a PCIe SSD being released this year by Adata. We were told that we may see something down the consumer side for SSD’s closer to Computex.
Adata also had their HD650 on display with is specifically designed for XBOX One storage expansion, as well as Type C Durable external SSD’s in some fun colours.
There was also a small, durable, USB 3.1 Type C SSD, featuring read speeds up to 500 MB/s and write speeds up to 350 MB/s. This is IP68-certified that means it is military-grade shockproof, and is expected to have capacities ranging up to 2 TB. There was no word yet on pricing.
