The Extreme S3 SSD drive from Teamgroup uses the SATA 3 interface and a SANForce controller chip inside. The Read/write speed is around 600 Gb/s. The Ferrari looking drive called the TP123, uses USB 3.0 interface. the card reader for CF and other formats also uses USB 3.0 interface.

The 3D motion controller uses the same technology as the ultrasonic controller, but has 3D positioning capabilities. It can detect where your finger is (as long as it is above the controller and not in any other …place). The controller can sense when you prod forward as if pushing a button and also tracks the movement as you swirl your finger about. The game on display shows an Asteroid type game where the user is bashing the asteroids using his finger as the joystick. Other uses that spring to mind for this device could include the Adult entertainment industry, although that is merely speculation. If you have some ideas and would like to share them, feel free to leave a message. We will forward the noteworthy ones to the manufacturers.

Areca showed us a prototype based on the new Marvell 6GB/s SATA/SAS controller. They will launch a whole new series based on this controller in early 2010, which they expect to MORE than double(!) the performance of their existing series. They also mention that they are working on SSD improved firmware updates for their existing series!
