    A-DATA is showing off their memory cooling solutions. These have changed slightly in shape and the memory heatspreaders have also been redesigned to fit the additional cooling units better. The memory scales up to 2133 MHz at CL9. As you can see, the heatspreader design is black or grey. The latter will be used from now on to further change the X-Series from the other product groups.

    But A-DATA is also presenting their newest flash memory cards and drives at Computex.

    The Classic series is being expanded with three further models. They feature various designs and colors and are aimed at the budget user, who wants some simple storage to carry files around.

    A-DATA also has a Disney licence and is showing off two new themed flash drives.

    Another interesting part can be found in form of a compact flash card. The 16GB Turbo version is now a bit faster than before (up to 300x from 266x), but the 300x now applies to write speed as well as read speed! The microSD card capacity has been bumped to 8GB. There is nothing new with the 2.5 inch SSDs besides the new labels, but A-DATA is also offering 1.8 inch versions now.

    On a closing note, the company has redesigned their packaging and has introduced a new logo for flash based devices. Their memory will still keep the actual company logo.

    ROFL, VISTA is a disgrace to mankinds wisdom.
    What better way to waste more money then to install an inefficient o.s to not utilize more hardware :p

    The A-Data air cooled ram module doesnt look very effective.
    And the picture after it, with the headspreader over the top, well that looks more like a heat trapper as opposed to a spreader.

    I don't get it why does no one like vista ... its not a waste of money its a natural progression of operating systems. Windows 95 smaller than 98 which was smaller than 2000 which was smaller than xp. Each had increased system requirements and were more "bloated" than the last. Also vista has so much more features security wise than the rest put together, I've never had a virus neither has my little brother or my mum but when I had XP they constantly had virus' and spyware and crap.
