    A-DATA Technology Co., Ltd., a worldwide leading manufacturer in high-performance DRAM modules and flash application products, today announces that its A-DATA standard DRAM modules are now adopting the latest DNA authentication technology, in order to protect its intellectual property of DRAM modules against counterfeiting and fraud.

    The DNA authentication technology involves the embedded sequence of a unique DNA in the product label. In addition, A-DATA uses this technology in conjunction with advanced identification systems, to provide an effective solution in cause of protecting consumers' rights, and the intellectual property of A-DATA as a quality manufacturer of DRAM modules.

    Utilizing a black light pen to show up the fluorescent coding, consumers can easily identify the genuine of their purchased DRAM module from retailer, while the identification of the embedded DNA sequence can be identified by A-DATA labs. Moreover, the special designed significant cuts on the product label can avoid removing it easily to duplicate.

    "Counterfeiting DRAM module is a serious and growing problem in the DRAM industry, which needs a necessary precaution against it" said Gibson Chen, Vice President and Head of Product Management Division. "As a leading manufacturer of DRAM module in the industry, A-DATA is committed to offer the highest quality of DRAM module and solution to the consumers. Thus, we adopted the DNA authentication technology to protect our intellectual property and our consumers’ interests."

    Once again, A-DATA takes the lead in the DRAM industry to anti-counterfeit and fraud, in order to protect its intellectual property and consumers’ valuable investment.

    Yes. Counterfeits are on the rise. At least here in the APAC, you shouldn't be surprised finding "GeForce 9800 GT" cards made out of old GeForce 7600 GT GPUs (by modifying namestrings). RAM, Processors (rebranding cheap engineering samples), motherboards, everything has counterfeits.

    Exactly. Just a waste of money to protect themselves when shit came up sky high. So they now to fence themselves expecting from us users to check out what were buying under black light .... hilarious. How many of us even checks cash notes when they receive them ntm that were almost all on mind controlling plastic. Just mind control, brain washing approach. Seems in fact that all redesign of f*cking stickers went on its way just cause many of us tend to remove them when installing OC friendly ram heatsinks.

    Kingmax at least have extraordinary small-mock-bga-chip on pcb to prove they're original. And it's cheaper way and quickly noticeable even for non-technical person, thinking what is this pink square on board so for:p And how many of us will know there's some non-holographic sticker on part we buy and that's only visible under black light and suppose to save us from counterfeit stuff
