OCZ VERTEX 460 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 9:55A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently put the Vector 150 SSD to the test which impressed us but our main criticism was the price. Today, we look at the opposite end of the scale with the Vertex 460. The Vertex 460 is much more budget conscious but that isn`t to say the drive compromises on either speed or quality because with up to 545MB/s Sequential Read and up to 525MB/s Sequential Write performance and a 3 year warranty you would be foolish to write off (excuse the pun) this very rapid storage solution."

Gigabyte Next Generation Intel Motherboards @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 9:14A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Legit Reviews recently got a chance to sit down with Gigabyte to go over the 30+ motherboards that they will be releasing for an upcoming Intel chipset. We were asked not to say what that chipset will be, what the chipset features are, what the chipset logo looks like or show any retail product box shots. It isn?t a big secret what chipset Intel is launching next, but we will play by the rules and show you nearly a dozen boards that will be coming out very soon...."

GIGABYTE Next Generation Motherboards
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 9:09A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE Black Edition Series takes select motherboards from the Normal and Gaming Series and validates them for superior operational performance. Black Edition motherboards are stress tested for 168 hours straight (approximately one week) in GIGABYTE`s new test lab for stability and performance. The boards are placed in full test systems with CPU and GPU-base LiteCoin mining run on the systems to push the board to its performance limits."

OCZ RevoDrive 350 480 GB Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 9:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ had launched the last version of their PCI-Express based RevoDrives back in 2011, three years ago. Back then the SSD maker put up to two SandForce SF-2281 controller on one PCI-Express card, which allowed for transfer speeds of more than 1000 Megabyte per second. Today the company launches the successor of this drive and it can host no less than four controllers, which have been bundled using OCZ`s proprietary VCA 2.0 architecture."

OCZ RevoDrive 350 PCIe SSD Review (480GB) - LSI SandForce Driven Once Again
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ was the first to introduce a PCIe SSD solution to the consumer with their original RevoDrive PCIe SSD way back in 2010, this updated by the RevoDrive X2 PCIe SSD the following June and the RevoDrive 3x2 a few months later. There was no question that OCZ had struck gold with the RevoDrive 3x2 PCIe SSD as it was capable of performance of 1.5GB/s read and 1.25GB/s write with up to 200,000K IOPS. At a consumer price, the RevoDrive 3x2 PCIe SSD eliminated the SATA bottleneck, while providing RAID performance without the hassle, introduced OCZ Virtualized Controller Architecture (VCA) 2.0 technology, and provided workstation design and performance at an affordable price."

Whats New: Intel Z97 Motherboards
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 5:50A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2007 Intel established a Tick-Tock model that predicted that following a micro-architectural process technology die shrink (tick) that a new micro-architecture would be introduced (tock). They?ve kept to this processor model for seven years, but no such model exists for their board chipset architecture. Instead, every tick update and new tock architecture receives a fresh LGA (land grid array) CPU socket: Nehalem brought LGA 1366 and later LGA 1156, Sandy Bridge introduced LGA 1155 followed by LGA 2011, and Haswell delivered LGA 1150. But what?s new in 2014 with Intel Z97?"

Bitfenix Prodigy M M-ATX review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Thu, Apr 24 2014 | 3:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested the Bitfenix Prodigy back in October 2012 we were very impressed. It turned out to be a great case for a mini-ITX motherboard. With the Prodigy M Bitfenix has taken the same shell and changed the internals so we now get to fit a M-ATX-motherboard in the same case. Does Bitfenix have another winner on their hands? Read on to find out."

AMD Mantle and NVIDIA 337.50 Scaling Demonstrated with Star Swarm on AM1
     Wed, Apr 23 2014 | 2:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These tests above aren`t meant to be conclusive evidence for either vendor`s current direction but are simply there to add more data points to our discussion moving forward. AMD Mantle has huge potential upside but requires a lot of commitment from game developers and AMD`s own software team to keep up. NVIDIA`s continued DirectX improvement seems have a lower peak but can be implemented on a much wider array of games and without the need for developers to commit to something long term."

OCZ 240GB Vertex 460 solid state drive review @ OCIA.net
     Wed, Apr 23 2014 | 9:55A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?One of the first announced products to come about as a result of Toshiba acquiring OCZ was the Vertex 460, a marriage of OCZ`s Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and Toshiba 19nm toggle flash memory. Advertising up to 545MB/s sequential reads and 525MB/s sequential writes and from 90,000 to 95,000 4K random IOPS, it appears as if OCZ is right back at the top of their game in the SSD market. Available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities with a three year warranty, the Vertex 460 joins the Vector 150 in OCZ`s new lineup of consumer SSDs utilizing Toshiba`s toggle NAND flash memory.?"
