Toshiba TR200 SSD Review
     Fri, Oct 20 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba's new TR200 series SSDs are built around 64-Layer 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) BiCS Flash memory, but use the legacy SATA interface and target budget-conscious do-it-yourselfers. Toshiba’s BiCS flash memory employs a three-dimensional (3D) stacked cell structure that is designed for high density applications, but it also offers higher endurance than typical 3D NAND Flash, and is also low power, which is why a number of industry players are now leveraging the technology.

Intel Core i7 8700K Coffee Lake Desktop Processor
     Thu, Oct 19 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel eight generation Coffee Lake SKUs are based on 14nm manufacturing process. It uses the same socket LGA 1151 as its older brother Kaby Lake processors. There have been significant changes where its contact points are different between them. This resulted in incompatibility and an uproar within the community. We got a lot of information, mostly from leaks and previews. Conveniently leaked leaks. Intel is pushing Core i3 four core and 6 core for its mid to upper SKUs- some with six threads with i5 series and some with 12 threads under i7 series. Intel is calling these desktop SKUs as S series, though to be fair that’s just going to create confusion in the market. Interesting times are back to the CPU world now that AMD got its act together with Ryzen series SKUs. Smell the air, because the lake is filled with coffee!!

Asus ROG Strix Z370-F Gaming @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Oct 17 2017 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, the Coffee Lake launch is here and to support Intel’s new CPUs we also have new motherboards. As I write this I have two boards in the office that I have been testing, the first being the Asus ROG Strix Z370-F that I used to test the two CPUs for the review. Asus’s boards have been solid and this one doesn’t look to be any different. As a Strix board, it has Asus’s now standard color neutral layout that uses black and gray, RGB lighting, and the angular Strix look. Today I’m going to take a look at its features, confirm that it performs well, check out the UEFI, and then talk a little about where it sits in the market and find out if it is worth picking up.
