Silicon Power releases its first portable SSD, the Bolt B80, which combines bold design, impressive performance and safe storage.
The Bolt B80 impresses with an extraordinary design, shape, size, as well as feather lightness. Its futuristically stylish UFO-shaped aluminum housing measures only 1.2cm thick and 7.5cm in diameter and will glide effortlessly into pockets or bags for safe storage.
Equipped with a Type-C port and USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface, the B80 reaches read/write speeds of up to 500/450MB/s for blistering-fast data transfers and back-ups.
Silicon Power adds the ultra-small Jewel J35 and Touch T35 to its USB flash drive portfolio.
Thanks to their tiny size and low weight (2cm/2.2g), they are versatile drives that can stay plugged wherever they are needed, for example in laptops, car audio systems, or portable music systems. For easy data sharing or safe data storage, users can choose between capacities from 8GB to 64GB (T35) and 8 GB to 128GB (J35). Despite their compact size, they are still easy to handle – the ergonomic shape of the grip ensures fumble-free plugging and removal.
For those who appreciate speedy data transfer, the J35 with its fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) interface will be the drive of choice, whereas the T35 aims at the more budget-conscious users.
Both combine a robust, scratch-resistant metal casing with a sturdy TPU grip. While the J35 features a glossy stainless steel housing, that of the T35 has undergone a hairline surface treatment for a matt look.
Backed by a lifetime warranty, the Jewel J35 and Touch T35 offer excellent product material and service quality topped off with sophisticated, classy design.Add a comment

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules and NAND Flash products, today launched industrial-grade ISDD336 SD cards and IUDD336 microSD cards. Diversifying ADATA offerings for industrial storage, all models feature wide temperature tolerance as well as shock, vibration, and humidity resistance well beyond consumer product ratings. ISDD336 and IUDD336 cards utilize durable and long-lasting 3D MLC NAND Flash, and are fully compliant with SD 3.0/SPI specifications, making them reliable choices for embedded systems. Performance across the board reaches 95MB/s read and 90MB/s write. Customers can choose ISDD336 SD cards in 16GB to 256GB capacities, and IUDD336 microSD cards in 16GB to 128GB capacities.
Tough storage with more options
ADATA continues to increase its focus on industrial-grade products, with more offerings for users. As the SD standard has clear advantages for industrial customers thanks to its compact form factor, durability, and low power requirements, ADATA strives to provide more choice in the SD space. Thus, ISDD336 cards arrive in SD form factor while IUDD336 cards deliver the same quality and performance in microSD.
Targeting consumer’s growing demand for computer storage capacity and higher performance, the world’s leading memory brand, Team Group today announces the launch of the solid state drive L5 LITE-3D with all new 3D NAND technology. The latest generation of 3D NAND flash memory has overcome the technical barrier of 2D NAND. With features of durability and low energy consumption, it has gradually become the mainstream memory of the latest generation and enhances the overall capacity of the solid state drive, the performance, and the reliability. It not only provides a better performance and endurance but also breaks through the technical and capacity limitations of planar chips.
The L5 LITE-3D solid state drive is 4 times faster than the traditional hard drive. Its excellent performance and read/write speed not only allow fast boot/shutdown time but also speed up the response time of all application, so consumers can enjoy the high-speed performance immediately after the upgrade. It is lightweight and has an industry-standard 2.5-inch. With only 7mm in height, it is best suited for Ultrabooks on the market. Whether it is for laptop or desktop, the upgrade can be done quickly. It is using SATA III 6Gbps specification and capacities available in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, etc. The read speed performance is above 470 MB/s*, which not only easily improves the computer performance, but it is also the best bargain available.

ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today confirmed that its Premier microSDXC/microSDHC UHS-I Class 10 cards now support the new SD Association A1 standard. Part of SD 5.1 specifications, A1 has been designed for running apps off external storage, going beyond traditional SD card uses such as accessing photos and video. At the same time, ADATA has also implemented V10 and V30 video recording capabilities on all of its Premier Pro microSD and SD cards, denoting at least 10MB/s and 30MB/s of video recording bandwidth, respectively.
SD cards now able to run apps just like internal storage
An evolution long promoted by the SD Association, the A1 specification is part of SD 5.1 requirements. It shows that a microSD or SD card can support sufficiently high read speeds and IOPS counts to successfully run most apps without latency being an issue. In other words, A1 certified microSD and SD cards equal internal storage for app performance. They give users much greater freedom, as before apps were limited to internal storage even if large external storage was installed. With A1 and future specifications, users have the ability to install many more apps than would normally be the case, thanks to large add-in storage that is able to run said apps without compromise.
