A-DATA launched a new look for its brand along with the new products it had on display at the show this year, with an updated logo and corporate icon of a hummingbird. As you would expect from a memory manufacturer, there were plenty of RAM modules and flash drives around the booth. That included high density products for both desktops and laptops. Squeezing 4GB onto one SO-DIMM is pretty impressive.
Below you can see some of the company's XPG Plus Series v 2.0 DDR3 memory modules, which are available in speeds up to 2200MHz (CL8). Gaming series DIMMs and SO-DIMMs were also on display.
Also on display were USB 3.0 equipped flash drives and portable HDDs. Adoption of USB 3.0 is something you can expect to see becoming widespread this year as more hardware is released that supports the new standard.
The trend for memory companies expanding to offer power supplies also continues, with A-DATA showing an 825W unit.
SSDs are everywhere this year, with all the major manufacturers including the drives in their line-ups. A-DATA offers models with capacities up to 512GB, with the upcoming 500 series boasting speeds of up to 280/270 MB/s and support for the Windows 7 TRIM command.
