At the technikPR party at Computex 2015 various companies were present, showcasing their interesting innovations from all different segments. In the video we present both Cherry's new mechanical keyboard, as well as be quiet's new Silent Base case, SanDisk's new USB 3.1 SSD Extreme 900 and lit memory made by Klevv.
We reported in detail on the Cherry MX Board 6.0 in January. A Cortex-M3 ARM CPU makes sure key signals are read in realtime, without any latency. Cherry states the keyboard responds faster than ordinary models. The robust aluminum keyboard allows the a palm rest to be magnetically docked. Cherry is now finally able to announce a launch date. The MX Board 6.0 will be available from 16 July, for 189 euro.
Be quiet! showed a new case during the technikPR party. The Silent Base 600 is the second be quiet! case, following in the footsteps of the Silent Base 800. The more compact alternative shows itself in the same design, and has only been slightly modified. Be quiet! once again focused on the optimal balance between cooling performance and silence. The case comes factory-equipped with a 140 and a 120 mm fan. The Silent Base 600 is expected to hit the stores in September, for a price of 110 euro. A version featuring a window will cost 125 euro. A silent window is used, as not to undermine be quiet's silent. The window consists of two plastic layers, with a cavity left inbetween. Apart from the Silent Base 600, new fans were also on display - namely the Silent Wings 3 with a six-pole motor and improved air flow.
Chinese company Sama is so far quite unknown in Europe. However, Sama is a large player in the Asian market, especially in the power supply segment. In the third quarter, the company is going to enter the German - and European - market. Sama's flagship power supply is the 80 PLUS Titanium model Forza, with 800 watts. In addition to power supplies, Sama also offers cases.
Both SanDisk and Klevv showed memory. SanDisk had its external USB 3.1 Extreme 900 SSDon display, which is avaible in capacities of up to 2TB. Even the "small" version already comes with 480 GB. The more compact USB 3.0 Extreme 500 SSD is clad in a rubber jacket, and is primarily intended for mobile use. The South Korean company Klevv in contrast exhibited lighted memory for gamers and enthusiasts, including the Cras DDR4 modules.
