Strontium AUTO 16GB Flash Drive @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the dust settled from our testing we found out a few things from the AUTO USB. The Strontium AUTO USB does max out USB 2.0 with the read speeds, but the write speeds are slower, coming in at around 7MB/s. The chip on board was not able to be tested as none of our cars our friends cars had USB connections in their cars. If it does work as intended that will just be an added bonus. Another thing to keep in mind, this AUTO USB stick has an MSRP of $10 which is a huge factor in buying flash drives. It is nice and cheap with great read speeds and average write speeds for other flash drives in the price range."

IDF 2012: The Intel Next Unit of Computing - NUC @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 10:28A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel NUC has been powered by several processors over the past year, but this month at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) we saw the latest version that is powered by a Intel Core i3-3217U processor that has been soldered to the underside of the board. This is a 1.8 GHz dual-core `Ivy Bridge` processor with Hyper-Threading that is rated at just 17 Watts! Intel plans on shipping the NUC in this current form for $399 starting in October 2012. This price might shock some people, but this isn`t a Raspberry Pi board with an ARM CPU/GPU for $35..."

Corsair Neutron 240GB SSD Review - Link_A_Media Controller @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 21 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair touts the Neutron 240GB drive as reaching max performance numbers of 555 MB/s reads and 370 MB/s writes which we found to be spot on for the ATTO benchmark and not far off on the other tests. Given that performance is not impacted by data compressibility, that`s to be expected as well as solid performance numbers in the real world tests. We didn`t spot anything amiss in any of the numbers and general usage of the drive in Windows yielded positive results with no hint of stuttering, lagging or BSOD`s. TRIM and idle garbage collection seem to be working fine as well so no worries there. Overall, our first impressions are very positive..."
