Teamgroup’s annual launch event is fast approaching and should herald all the usual suspects, from new large capacity storage to DDR5 RAM modules that are ready for Intel’s Alder Lake CPUs. Wccftech spotted one product that stands out from the crowd, however, and that’s an all-in-one water cooled SSD.
Teasing the Cardea Liquid II SSD as a silhouette, it looks to take all the cues you’d expect from the best AIO coolers, from the 120mm radiator to its dual tubes that feed into a water block. There’s even the outline of an RGB header dangling next to the pump. It’s not clear exactly how the closed-loop fits into your gaming PC just yet, but the water block likely connects via PCIe given it’s a little too chonky for a regular M.2 slot, and it could potentially house more than one NVMe SSD at a time.
As you can probably tell from its name, the device is the successor to the T-Force Cardea Liquid water cooling SSD that Teamgroup released in 2019. In fact, the idea of a water cooled SSD goes back even further with EK’s DIY water block in 2015.
