Asus in Cebit
Asus in the Cebit 2001 show presented a full line
of new CDR-W drives for the first time.
This was the most interesting model from Asus.
The drive supports 20x writing speed, 10x re-writing, 40x reading and 8x
DVD-ROM reading!!! Also you will find 2mb of buffer, "JustLink"
anti-coaster technology, 120ms access time and UDMA 33. The drive is obvious
based upon Ricoh mechanism. However Ricoh hasn't announced similar 20x combo
product in the Cebit 2001 show!
This is another interesting CDR-W drive from Asus.
It supports 16x writing, 10x re-writing and 40x reading. It has also 2mb of
buffer and "SuperLink" anti-coaster technology. Who makes this drive?
Interesting question...The drive doesn't seem based upon Ricoh or Sanyo mechanisms.
Maybe it's Philips solution?
is the latest DVD-ROM from Asus. The drive supports 16x DVD and 50x CD reading.
This is the first time we see 16x DVD-ROM with such increased CD reading speed.
The drive has 512KB of buffer among with 85ms random access time. Last it includes
Asus "DDSSII" system:
"...Asus has developed a unique suspension
design - coined "DDSS II" for Double Dynamic Suspension System - for
it's DVD-ROM. To reduce the vibration caused by the spindle motor, Asus build
a damper between the core mechanisms and traverse as the first suspension and
as isolator between the traverse and loader mechanism as the second suspension.
Both damper and isolater have precisely been calculated and designed using special
rubber materials with different levels of elasticity.."
