Taipei, Taiwan – Feb. 3rd, 2010 - A-DATA®, the worldwide leader in DRAM memory and Flash application products, introduced its USB 3.0-ready product solutions with ASUS®, a long-term strategic partner of A-DATA®, jointly at the technical seminar held by ASUS®. A live demo on its newly released N002, the combo drive with SATA II and USB 3.0 port embedded, and NH01, the USB 3.0 compliant portable hard disk drive, were also performed to demonstrate its recent achievement on USB 3.0 and overwhelm the participants with its super fast performance. The strong co-op partnership between A-DATA and ASUS, each possess its own special expertise in their own field, surely will expedite the transition to USB 3.0.
“ASUS’s commitment to grade-A product quality and enriching consumers’ digital life with function-rich products match perfectly with A-DATA’s” said Simon Chen, CEO and Chairman of A-DATA Technology, “We work closely with our supply chain, both upstream and downstream, to make sure our products meet customers’ expectation. And we fully understand our products must satisfy the crave for space and speed.”
Jerry Shen, CEO of ASUS, says “The anticipation for USB 3.0 continues to build as the file size grows larger and larger where transporting ports of USB 2.0 can no longer keep up with the need for speed. Yet, the adaptation of a new technology relies mainly on suppliers’ roadmap. Knowing that, ASUS® team up with tier-one suppliers such as A-DATA, the leader in memory products, to make sure we stay ahead of the game.”
