ASUSTeK has announced its latest internal drive, the ASUS CRW-5232A, which is capable of delivering 52X write and 32X rewrite speeds. The CRW-5232A incorporates proprietary technologies including ASUS FlextraLink, FlextraSpeed, DDSS II and CAV (constant angular velocity), which are all designed to help the user record more reliably.

FlextraLink prevents buffer underrun problems and eliminates the creation of unusable discs, while FlextraSpeed enhances accuracy and reliability when writing and rewriting across a broad range of certified media. Throughout the recording process, FlextraLink consistently keeps track of the data buffer status, whereas FlextraSpeed continuously monitors the recording media and sets the most effective writing speed to ensure top-quality recording.

Both Asus proprietary technologies occupy minimal system resources, allowing the PC to remain fully operational and available for other applications even during the recording process. The CRW-5232A also features the patented DDSS II technology, an enhanced follow-up of the first-generation Double Dynamic Suspension System. The DDSS technology is designed to minimise vibration and noise caused by high-revolution spindle motors.

By stabilising the pick-up head, both horizontally and vertically, the CRW-5232A enables more precise tracking for stable recording. The ASUS CRW-5232A utilises CAV writing strategy to significantly shorten recording time and achieve higher average recording speed, compared to other high-speed CD-RW drives on the market.

The ASUS CRW-5232A will be available for shipment by the end of July.
