Besides offering a complete range of storage solutions, Apacer also unveiled its latest additions in its gaming hardware. These include a new DDR4 RAM stick that overclocks to 3,500MHz called the Blade, as well as the world’s first SSD with LED backlight.
The Blade is an industry-leading DDR4 RAM module that now overclocks to a speedy 3,500MHz, which bests the Blade’s previous record of 3,300Mhz, and with low CAS latency. Similar to Apacer’s other gaming hardware, the Blade has a design that takes after a weapon; in this case, it is obviously a blade, with a silver streak etched along the RAM stick. But, the name itself isn’t just inspired by the aesthetics – the “sabre-type” heat spreader has excellent heat dissipation properties, which encourages enthusiasts to really test the limits of the Blade RAM module.
On the other hand, the AS730 has a design that’s purely made to look good. The mantle of “the world’s first SSD with LED backlight” isn’t really a big deal (Apacer says the flashing LEDs make it seem like the SSD is “physically in the games”), but the real exciting factor here is with the integration of SATA 3 and USB 3.1 Type-C, unlocking the exceptionally fast SSD transfer speeds.
