Intel Optane Memory With 3D XPoint Review
     Sat, Apr 29 2017 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel Optane Memory is designed to accelerate the storage subsystem on compatible machines, to improve transfer speeds and reduce latency. It is among the first products to leverage 3D XPoint memory technology that was co-developed by Intel and Micron. 3D XPoint offers many of the same properties as NAND flash memory, but with much higher endurance and certain performance characteristics that are similar to DRAM. We revealed many details regarding Intel Optane Memory a couple of weeks ago. To quickly reiterate, Intel Optane Memory products and their associated software are designed to cache the most frequently accessed bits of data on a compatible system, which can significantly increase performance and improve responsiveness...

Posted by: STAFF
HyperX is making a foray into yet-unexplored gaming peripheral territory today with its Pulsefire gaming mouse, a simple and software-free rodent. We put this mouse to the mat to see whether HyperX's keep-it-simple approach plays well with gaming mice.

Optane Memory
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I knew XPoint was going to enable all sorts of performance gains to storage systems, but I honestly did not expect Optane Memory to net such large benefits and to do it so well. While previous hybrid/caching technologies have been decent, the outstanding latency of XPoint enables an Optane Memory cache to boost HDD systems to meet or even exceed the performance of NAND-SSD equipped machines! While the intended market is clearly as an upgrade to HDD-only systems, measurable benefits can be seen even when caching a SATA SSD. When paired with a budget SATA SSD, we saw boot times cut in half and coming in nearly a second faster than a NAND-NVMe SSD! Overall I am extremely impressed with the performance benefits and implementation of Optane Memory."

GeIL EVO Forza DDR4-2400 32GB Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Apr 28 2017 | 12:35P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GeIL has quite a few different lines of DDR4 memory. We’ve already taken a look at their Super LUCE memory and now its time to take a look at the EVO Forza memory. EVO Forza is part of their gaming series memory so it is targeted at gamers and enthusiasts. The kit we are taking a look at today is their GFY432GB2400C16QC which is a 32GB kit that runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.2V. This is marketed as a quad-channel kit, but it can easily be used as a dual-channel kit on Intel Z170 and Z270 platforms as well. Let’s get this kit in a test system and see what it can do!"

Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200C16 32GB Review
     Thu, Apr 27 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vengeance LED modules Corsair has some good looking DRAM modules on the market. The customer receives a red illumination, which in combination with the black heatspreader, looks rather compelling. Apart from that the specs are interesting as well and DDR4-3200 should definitely pack some punch.

Lexar JumpDrive P20
     Wed, Apr 26 2017 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So there you have it: an inexpensive USB drive that performs extremely well. Hitting 400 MB/s second on reads is obviously quite impressive, and the write speeds are very good, with the expected improvement based on capacity. This trio of drives, ranging from about $19.99 to $49.99 on Amazon (well below Lexar’s MSRPs), are an outstanding value for very fast portable storage."

Intel Optane Memory Review - 1.4GB/s Speed & 300K IOPS for $44
     Tue, Apr 25 2017 | 5:52P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel Optane Memory is Intel' first phase in release of their Optane flash technology line that Intel hopes might revolutionize the flash industry. At its most basic level, it is SSD storage that caches your hard drive with performance speeds up to 1.4GB/s, a speed that has yet to be seen for this type of storage in the industry. The term 'Optane' is the new branding designation for flash products using Intel' newest 3D XPoint flash memory. 3D XPoint just may be game changing, and in fact, it could almost be argued that Intel/Micron may have just invented a better wheel when the entire 3D Xpoint story is told.

MSI Z270 SLI PLUS Motherboard Review
     Tue, Apr 25 2017 | 5:24P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like most motherboard manufactures MSI has quite the Intel Z270 motherboard lineup, separated into a few different categories. Starting off you have the Gaming Series, which of course is targeted at gamers as well as enthusiasts. Next you have the Performance Gaming, which is where you’ll find the Krait and Carbon motherboards. The last gaming series from MSI is the Arsenal Gaming Series, which has the Tomahawk, Mortar and Bazooka board. Not part of the Gaming Series is the Pro Series, which is designed for great performance, but without all of the flash and extra’s you’ll find on the gaming series boards. Today we are checking out the Z270 SLI PLUS which is part of the Pro Series. It has great features like Military Class 5 components, Turbo M.2 slots, USB 3.1, support for SLI and Crossfire, and much more. You get all of this for a very reasonable $133! Let’s jump in and see what this motherboard is all about!"

3D stackable phase change memory
     Mon, Apr 24 2017 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
XPoint. Optane. QuantX. We've been hearing these terms thrown around for two years now. A form of 3D stackable phase change memory that promised 10x the density of DRAM and 1000x the speed and endurance of NAND. These were bold statements, and over the following months, we would see them misunderstood and misconstrued by many in the industry. These misconceptions were further amplified by some poor demo choices on the part of Intel (fortunately countered by some better choices made by Micron). Fortunately cooler heads prevailed as Jim Handy and other industry analysts helped explain that a 1000x improvement at the die level does not translate to the same improvement at the device level, especially when the first round of devices must comply with what will soon become a legacy method of connecting a persistent storage device to a PC.

FreeTail EVOKE 256GB 800x CompactFlash Card

Small 75MB files were written to the card at 78.16MB/s. Medium 1GB files were written to the card at a solid 79MB/s. Large 10GB files managed to do slightly better at 79.89MB/s. That is darn close to the “Up To” speeds the card claims and is more than enough for pretty much every device that requires CF cards...

Patriot LX Series 256GB MicroSD Card Review
     Fri, Apr 21 2017 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Let’s face it, pretty much every thing we use these days requires an SD card either for its main storage, or adding extra storage. If you are shooting photos or video having a reliable SD card is crucial. You want something that won’t fail on you and is fast enough to keep up with your recording, especially if you are recording in 4K. Patriot thinks that they have the perfect card for you in their LX Series 256GB MicroSD Card. This is a Class 10/UHS-I compatible card offering transfer speeds up to 90 MB/s. Let’s take a look…"

Posted by: STAFF
Today, a new reader review has been published. Berserkus is testing the AeroCool Project7 P7-C1 Tempered Glass Edition mid-tower case in his first reader review on OCinside.de. The tempered-glass side panel looks very good and we should not be afraid about scratches when cleaning, which unfortunately happens with plexiglass.

AMD Ryzen - Single-Rank Versus Dual-Rank DDR4 Memory Performance
     Mon, Apr 17 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After finishing up our DDR4 memory scaling article on an AMD Ryzen processor with an AMD X370 chipset powered board we were left wondering if memory performance and scaling was similar on different AMX X370 motherboards from different manufacturers. We gathered up the MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM ($299.99), GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming 5 ($194.99) and ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero ($254.99) motherboards as the three boards that we were going to try out. Looking at the 'big 3' motherboard markers should give us a pretty good idea if there are any big differences to be had with regards to the memory subsystem.
