One of our next stops was to catch up with our friends at ADATA CES 2023, and they had a lot to share. We saw Mera, a new brand ambassador, and a couple of collab builds. We also saw the SE920 external PCIe 5.0 hard drive and an unnamed(?) PCIe M.2 drive with active cooling. Like many others companies we visit, there’s a lot to unpack here.

Castor DDR5 8000 RAM, SE920, and PCIe 5.0 M.2 Hard Drive

We also saw the Castor DDR5-8000 RAM in action posting a massive number in AIDA64’s memory speed test. At the current time, there are not a lot of boards that can handle such speeds. For the record, this was running on the MSI MPG Z790I Edge motherboard. Pictured with the RAM is the actively cooled (when open) SE920, which upgrades to a PCIe 5.0 storage module inside. Next is the new, seemingly unnamed, PCIe 5.0 M.2 module. We can expect to see these on the market in the coming months.

Cybercore II, Core Reactor, and Kyber Gold Power Supplies

They also showed off new power supply models in the Fusion, Cybercore II, Core Reactor, and Kyber Gold rated Titanium, Platinum, and the last two Gold, respectively. The OEM for these units are Delta and exclusive to XPG. One of the cool things about the Fusion platform is the ability to piggyback another power supply with a single cable. This doesn’t make much sense in a 1.6KW unit. However, ADATA said you’ll see this feature on models as low as 650W. So if you bought a 650W model and wanted a 400W+ video card, you can buy another Cybercore II 650W and double your output cheaper than a new, adequately sized single unit.

Prototype case, Battle Cruiser II, and Air Valor Chassis

We also got a close-up look at some unique custom cases done in their existing line and a couple of new models. Pictured is the Air Valor in white, with its magnetic front panel removed, and the Battle Cruiser II full-size tower. Also pictured is a new prototype case where the top raises to allow for more air cooling.

Levante 240/360mm AIO and the Xenia 16G and 15P Laptops

Last but not least are the new Levante II 240 and 360mm AIO and the Xenia 16G and 16P laptops. They didn’t share too many details on the AIO, but the fans are RGB, and the pump/res/block also uses an infinity mirror-style aesthetic. While the laptops are standard, XPG updated the naming convention for clarity. The number represents the size (diagonally) of the monitor. The suffixes are now the letters X, P, and G; where X has the best performance and G is the lowest.
