CES 2011 Coverage


SD Association

SD was down here at CES this year and had quite a few different things that it was showing off. SD cards are the most commonly used flash memory cards, with 77% of the market back in 2008 and 83% of the market projected in 2012. SD was showing off quite a few of its different cards at its booth — SDXC series cards that ranged anywhere from 32GB to 2TB, SDHC series cards that range in size from 4GB to 32GB and regular SD series cards that come in capacities up to 2GB. Currently, we are limited to the UHS-I Bus, which has 104 MB/s read speeds and 50MB/s write speeds. However, with the new advancements in the SD bus-interface, we are able to see up to 312MB/s read and 156MB/s write. These extraordinary transfer speeds give manufacturers the flexibility to develop new features. In addition, other markets may open up for devices that require the use of a memory card and wish to use the SD memory card standard.





Supermicro's booth was rather small because the company was essentially only showing off one product, the new C7P67 premium desktop motherboard. Based on the new Intel P67 chipset, the C7P67 supports second generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors and up to 32GB of 1333MHz DDR3. It contains four SATA 3.0 ports, four SATA 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and twelve USB 2.0 ports (eight rear and four via two internal headers). It also has two Gigabit LAN ports, two IEEE 1394a (Firewire) headers, and onboard Realtek ALC889 7.1 HD audio.




Mad Catz

Mad Catz was showing off some new products from its sister companies, such as Cyborg, Saitek, Tritron, GameShark and Eclipse. From Cyborg, it had the RAT 7 and 9 gaming mice on display. Both models offer a unique design to help your hand be comfortable during long gaming sessions. Both mice come in at 5600 dpi, with the only difference being that the RAT 9 works on 2.4GHz wireless, while the RAT 7 is still wired. Cyborg also had the AmBx keyboard and AmBx Lights on display. AmBx is short for "ambient experiences", which is the technology that is going to deliver sensory surround entertainment, enabling gamers to enjoy a more immersive experience by incorporating dynamic light and color effects into their gameplay. Lastly, Saitek was showing off a full cockpit setup with the Pro Flight lineup.  






NEC was showcasing the new LT-S Android Cloud Communicator. This device uses the Android 2.1 platform and comes in weighing approximately 370g and measures up to 220 x 120 x 14mm. It has a 7" wide TFT non-glare, resistive touch panel with a resolution of 800x480. It features Bluetooth wireless technology, a 3MP auto focus camera and a single USB 2.0 port, as well as a SDHC card slot. According to NEC, you should get about a full eight hours of battery life.
