A-DATA Announces Dual SSD Enclosure

A-DATA Technology Co., Ltd., a worldwide leader in high performance memory products, announced today that it is launching XPG Dual SSD 3.5” RAID Enclosure to expand its portfolio of SSD solutions.

The A-DATA XPG Dual SSD 3.5” RAID Enclosure is a complete RAID solution through the use of two 2.5” SATA SSDs and/or HDDs mounted on one standard 3.5” form factor drive cage. This multifunctional RAID enclosure can be used as two separate drives, as a redundant drive to protect against drive failure, combined to become one high-performance drive or combined to become one large drive. By utilizing the hardware DIP switch on the back of the unit or included software utility, all these different RAID configurations and more can be set in an instant. Connection via SATA or USB enables easy direct access.

Designed for both internal & external purposes, A-DATA XPG Dual SSD 2.5” RAID Enclosure is the best choice for storage expansion and backup solution.

Furthermore, A-DATA also offers a 2.5” to 3.5” hard drive enclosure (Dual SSD 3.5” Enclosure - without built-in RAID function) converting simultaneously two 2.5” SATAI/II SSD and/or HDD into a 3.5” one.

Both products will be available by end of Q1 2009.

Drivers, game engine, backhander between the developers and ATI...who knows :p It's quite possible that NV could turn around tomorrow with a new driver that drastically improves GRID performance on the GTX260 and the 4870 gets a good spanking.



Indeed, it was known for a while that Oblivion benchmarkers used to favor ati designs, and it has to be down to specific dev.

But it's created by a game design platform called Gamebryo, similar to the version used to make DAoC and WAR.

Having a finger in the dev pie can always influence performance.

Would of been interesting to see crossfire performance with a pair of these against the gtx260 in sli, also gtx 280 single & sli.

The thing is, its hard to get companies to lend us that many cards, it would also take a long time to review.. Maybe in the future though :P

The only thing I would disagree with is the cooler. The fan on this thing is like a leaf blower on full noise!
Main reason I purchased this HIS was because of this review saying the cooler was 'whisper' quiet.
First thing I did was get myself an MCW60-4870.
Nice review otherwise.

Have you checked the fan connections at all? On a different GPU a short while ago I noticed the RPM sensor cable (normally yellow) wasn't plugged in to the connector block properly. As a result the fan was running at full tilt.

Hi Jim. Nice review :).
When I first installed the card I checked the temp through CCC and was surprised to see that it was 67C, no fan running. So I manually ran it using CCC. Anything below 40% fan speed was ok and brought the temps down quite a bit (the cooler itself works really good).
Testing it out and running the fan flat out, I thought that my case was going to start moving across the floor. Loudest fan I have ever heard :).
I had included the card into my water loop within a week of buying it, so it's all good now.
Pity I paid a premium price for the HIS though because of it's cooler. Ended up coughing up another $AU139 for the MCW60-4870 too :(.
All's well that ends well though :)

I just leave the cards on auto (Ihave 2) and they are real quiet, never go much above 60c, deffo works much better than a reference 4870 cooler.

Water sure is nice though. Stays below 40C and quiet to boot :).

Aye built many with water mate, got one on the go now idling at 32c.

Im all for water, but where Ive not had time to do my own :crys: Id had to stay air, and just wanted to say that the coolers are much better than the stock ones and worth the extra few quid.
4870's get hot because of the digital PWM's, so the cooler really does do a good job.

Got mine idling at 28C and the cpu at 26C atm :). GPU's VDDC slave temps are in the mid 30C's.
I had nothing against the ICEQ cooler. It did the job nicely. Just could not handle the noise.
I've just changed the stock 120 fans on the radiator with a couple of 90cfm coolermasters. Running at 2000rpm and they can hardly be heard.
What sort of an OC can these HIS' get to? Had mine to 850 clock and 1100 mem with no artifacting. Haven't tried to go higher.
