Although the Futurelooks Team was not able to make the trip overseas to cover COMPUTEX 2013 this year, we did do our best to keep up with the latest news from the show thanks almost entirely to our resident AMD guy, James. While he did a fantastic job, we know you expect to see video coverage from Futurelooks because you’ve told us that we do a great job of it. And that’s what led our US rep from ADATA Technology to sneak some clips out of their booth for us to turn into a video!
At the ADATA Technology booth at COMPUTEX Taipei this year, they showed off some really cool looking products. But we’ll let the video do all the talking…
If you’re having trouble viewing the video, you can check it out on our YouTube Channel directly. Below you’ll find some of the quick reference highlights from the video.
ADATA XPG Carbon Prototypes (00:42) – ADATA showed off some new module designs with carbon fibre inserts. We may never see these as they were just a concept.
ADATA XPG Chameleon Prototypes (00:58) – The Chameleon heat spreaders they were showing off were the coolest of all. The windows in the spreaders turn clear as the temperatures ramp up. This is one unique concept we hope ADATA brings to market.
ADATA Portable SSD Flash Storage (01:21) – The new SE710 and SE820 sport SSDs in 128 and 256GB capacities. While both are USB 3.0, the SE820 kicks it up a notch with a Thunderbolt port.
ADATA DashDrive Air (02:06) – ADATA released a DashDrive Air at CES 2013, but the new one has some upgrades including an internal 500GB hard drive and the ability to charge a phone with a fairly large 5200mAh internal battery.
ADATA UD320 MicroUSB Flash Drive (03:02) – The UD320 USB flash drive has both a full sized and micro USB connector. It’s meant to extend the storage on your smartphone easily in capacities of 16 and 32GBs.
ADATA SX2000 Enterprise SSDs (03:36) – The SX2000 had to be the most talked about SSD at COMPUTEX 2013. Sporting up to 1600GBs (1.6TBs) of storage in a 2.5 inch casing, this drive will be expensive when it launches. Maybe not $10,000 as we said in the video, but it’ll probably be close. It also wont’ be compatible with your regular SATA ports as it will use a new SFF-8639 interface which sports transfer speeds of up to 1800MB/s both read and write. Crazy.
And that’s our look at what ADATA Technology had to show off at COMPUTEX 2013 this year. Make sure you leave your comments as our peeps at ADATA often want to know what your thoughts are on their products, good, or bad.
