Taking an Accurate Look at SSD Write Endurance
     Tue, Mar 19 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of the day, manufacturers must balance cost, capacity, and longevity. This forces a push towards smaller processes (for more capacity per cost), with the limit being how much endurance they are willing to give up in the process. In the end they choose based on what the customer needs. Enterprise use leans towards SLC or eMLC, as they are willing to spend more for the gain in endurance. Typical PC users get standard MLC and now even TLC, which are *good enough* for that application."

OCZ Agility 4 256gb @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Mar 18 2013 | 10:20A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It wasnt that long ago when we took a look at the OCZ Vertex 4, the first drive sporting the Indilinx Everest 2 controller. The Vertex 4 topped just about everything we put it through. When OCZ asked if we were interested in checking out the Asynchronous Agility 4, we jumped at the chance. With the difference between the drives just being the NAND used, its always interesting to see what real world performance difference you should expect when going with a budget drive. Not everyone can afford to get top of the line, especially when balancing capacity as well. Lets see what you will be giving up and find out if its worth the difference in price."

Leave Six Strikes Alone! @ Techgage
     Mon, Mar 18 2013 | 9:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Six Strikes is live in the US, and the Internet is full of its usual rage. Rather than jump in swinging with both fists, Brett set down his editorial pen to let some truths come out before grabbing his own pitchfork and torch. With a little more knowledge and less gut reaction, he jumps to the defense of Six Strikes as the abused pop star that he feels it is."

Posted by: STAFF
Considering their architectural differences, AMD`s VLIW4-based Richland APUs and the Sea Islands` HD 8000M series may seem like strange bedfellows. However, AMD has somehow allowed them to work together in Dual Graphics mode in order to enhance graphics performance. "

Rosewill Ultra-Slim RedMere HDMI Cables Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Mar 17 2013 | 4:01P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill`s latest Ultra-Slim HDMI cables utilize RedMere`s RM1695 mini-booster modules. These Ultra-Slim HDMI cables from Rosewill have easily manageable 36 AWG wires that come in either black or white color. Twelve SKUs in total are offered by Rosewill including lengths of 3, 6, 10 and 15 ft as well as Male A-to-Male D and Male-A to Male-C HDMI cable versions. Rosewill`s Ultra-slim cables have a gold-plated Male-A connector with a much smaller jacket measuring only 15mm wide, 5mm thick and 14mm long (20mm for the TV end which contains the Redmere module). This is considerably smaller compared to the standard HDMI jacket which is 18mm wide, 10mm thick and 24mm long. The Rosewill Ultra-Slim cables can also be used on IP-enabled devices without the use of a separate Ethernet cable."

     Sun, Mar 17 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Arion AR602 floor standing speakers. With a built-in amplifier you won`t need an external receiver like many home theater speakers and with a dedicated tweeter, mid-range, and subwoofer pushing 180W peak/100W RMS frequency range and volume shouldn`t be an issue either. Read on to see if these speakers have what it takes."
