It is the bridge between IDE devices and motherboards. It transfers data from IDE devices to motherboards and vice versa. What is it?
Of course, you all know what the answer - the IDE cable. IDE cables come in two different types - the standard flat type and the rounded type.
As most of you know, rounded IDE cables improve air flow and are more flexible compared to the standard flat IDE cables. They also look a lot better and are much easier to install. That's why rounded cables have always been the choice for those serious about cooling and case modding.
Today, we will take a look at the RD3XP Gladiator. Yes! It's the Super Shielded Round Cable from VICS Technology Inc.
For those of you who are curious, VICS Technology, Inc. is a joint-venture company between Vertex Link Corp. of Japan and IOSS International Corp. of Taiwan.
This cable has all the advantages of a rounded cable but that's not all. The RD3XP Gladiator also comes with some unique features packed which the other rounded IDE cables do not have. Or that's what VICS Technology claims.
What are those special features? Well, we are going to have a good look at that pretty soon. But before we go into the nitty-gritty details, let's take a look at the package. Let's see what we get in the RD3XP Gladiator package.
