Aside from its new 256GB microSD card and rugged external hard drive line-up which include a model that able to withstand 600kg of weight on top of it, Apacer has also showcased several new products that are targeted to gamers at Computex 2016. One of them is Z280 M.2 PCIe solid state drive that will be making its way to the market this July.
Available with capacity of up to 480 GB, this NVMe PCIe 3.0 x 4 SSD apparently able to churn out maximum read and write speed of 2,500 MB/s and 1,350 MB/s respectively. Judging from the sample units that were on display at Computex 2016, the Z280 is equipped with Toshiba NAND flash chip alongside Phison controller and Nanya DRAM chip.
Meanwhile, Apacer will also release a trio of solid state drives later this month. One of them come in the form of Panther AS340 SATA 3.0 (6Gbit/s) SSD which is available with storage space of up to 240 GB and offers maximum read speed of 505 MB/s as well as write speed of 410 MB/s.
Consumers will also able to choose the Armor AS681 SATA 3.0 SSD that offers a slightly faster maximum read and write speed than AS340 at 545 MB/s and 520 MB/s respectively. However, this particular SSD can be obtained with storage space of up to 960 GB.
Additionally, June 2016 will also witness the release of Apacer ASMini which the company claimed as the world’s first portable mini SSD. To be available with capacity of up to 240GB, it utilizes USB 3.0 Type-C connector and able to deliver sustained read speed of 431 MB/s as well as write speed of 380 MB/s.
Last but not least, another Apacer’s gaming product that will be released this year is the Panther Rage LED DDR4 module although it will only take place in Q3 2016. Available with capacity of up to 32GB, it can be obtained with clock speed of either 2,133 MHz, 2,400 MHz, and 2,666 MHz. Since it supports XMP 2.0 profiles, the Panther Rage LED DD4 modules are also designed to be overclockable.
Despite having tentative release date, Apacer didn’t reveal the pricing for any of the new products that we mentioned above. For those who are interested to get their hands on them, guess you have to wait for the information to be made available when they reached our shores later.
