Adata introduces NeonStorm self-contained liquid cooling solid state drive with a pair of fans

Adata has introduced a PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD codenamed Project NeonStorm that definitely stands out from the crowd. The SSD, which will appear under the gaming brand XPG (Xtreme Performance Gear), is equipped with independent liquid cooling and a pair of fans. This minimizes the chances of overheating and performance degradation of a high-speed SSD.

The most notable additions in Adata’s press release for the upcoming Computex 2023 are the Project NeonStorm and Legend 970 SSDs, which use a PCIe 5.0 x4 interface for maximum data transfer speeds on the latest AMD and Intel platforms.

The NeonStorm project adds a standalone liquid cooling system for Adata M.2 2280 SSDs that directly cools the controller and NAND chips. Aluminum heat pipes and a small fluid reservoir can be seen in the images provided. Fans are installed at both ends of the device. The drive design is fully autonomous and does not require connection to an external LSS. Adata states that this SSD delivers sequential read and write speeds of 14GB/s and 12GB/s, respectively.

The Adata Legend 970 SSD has a more traditional design. However, experts note significant improvements over the previous generation Legend drive, which can be attributed to the use of cast aluminum cooling fins and a larger fan. According to Adata, the Legend 970 achieves sequential read and write speeds of 10 GB/s each.

At Computex 2023, Adata will be showcasing the two PCIe 5.0 SSDs mentioned above, as well as various other storage devices, memories, cases, power supplies and laptops. Computex visitors will also be able to try unexpected XPG brand products – new chewing gums and nutrition bars for e-sports enthusiasts.
