Silicon Power Blaze B50 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sun, Aug 30 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like everything else in the PC market storage media have evolved a lot compared to even just 10 years ago both in terms of performance and capacity. Just imagine that 10 years ago the highest capacity and performance USB 2.0 flash drive one could find in the market (and i had) was just 4GB and could reach speeds up to 33MB/s read and 10MB/s write whereas now we have many 128/256GB models in the lab capable of reaching speeds up to 450MB/s for both read and write and as many of you are aware there are even 1TB models available in the market like the Predator by Kingston and the T1 by Samsung. Of course not everyone can afford the high-end 512/1TB drives and honestly i don't think they really have to since even 128GB is not something the majority of consumers will ever fill with data they need to carry around with them. Still prices for 128GB USB 3.0 flash drives have reached an all-time low and thus today we'll be taking a look at the latest model by Silicon Power, the Blaze B50.

GeIL EVO POTENZA 16GB 2400MHz Memory Kit Review
     Sun, Aug 30 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GeIL, or Golden Emperor International Limited, are certainly not a new player in the technology industry even if many people in the “West” have not heard of them. GeIL Memory are veterans of the DRAM industry having made memory products since 1993. GeIL as a broader company also make power supplies under the Thortech Power brand and they make peripherals under the EpicGear brand. Today we are looking at GeIL’s EVO POTENZA memory kit described as a product for “hardcore gamers”. More specifically we have the 16GB 2400MHz kit from GeIL which boasts a lifetime warranty, a beautiful white and black design and full native Intel Z77/Z87/Z97 support with XMP profiles. You can of course use the RAM with other platforms but with such a high frequency those platforms are recommended most.

Kingston DataTraveler 4000 G2 64GB USB Flash Drive
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 1:14P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Kingston has developed a very useful Managed Solution USB flash drive that makes transporting data easy and secure. That solution is the DataTraveler 4000 G2 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive. It offers built in AES encryption, management interface and a physical design that renders the device unrecoverable if opened. We found a room of white hat (and a couple gray hat) cyber security specialists willing to help put it to the test."

Toshiba FlashAir III Wireless SD Card Review
     Mon, Aug 24 2015 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the previous FlashAir 32GB card we have tested, its latest version comes with about the same features, but we have improvements on the transfer rates, while we have seen that the wireless speeds have remained the same. Regarding the wireless interface, we can obtain similar speeds as with the previous version, but keep in mind that multiple factors can affect the wireless transfer speeds like the number of available 2.4GHz networks in the area, shielding inside the camera we are using FlashAir on, performance of the Wi-FI adapter from our desktop/laptop/tablet and so on.

G.SKILL Demos DDR4 4266MHz and DDR4 4133MHz Memory Kits at IDF 2015
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 6:31P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory solid state storage, power supplies, and gaming peripherals, demos two ultra-fast DDR4 memory kits at DDR4 4266MHz 8GB (2x4GB) and DDR4 4133MHz 8GB (2x4GB) extreme speed at the Intel IDF 2015 event this week.

Featuring the latest 6th Generation Intel Core processors and Z170 motherboards, G.SKILL is pushing dual channel DDR4 speed to new heights. The DDR4 4266MHz 8GB (2x4GB) kit is demoed on the Intel Core i7-6700K processor and ASRock Z170 OC Formula overclocking motherboard, while the DDR4 4133MHz kit is demoed on the Intel Core i7-6700K CPU and ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero motherboard. Both kits represent the fastest DDR4 memory speed ever seen on live air-cooling demo systems.

www.pcstats.com

We are truly excited to demo such extremely high memory speed on live demo systems, since DDR4 4000+MHz speeds were traditionally only achievable under extreme overclocking on liquid nitrogen cooling,” says Frank Hung, Product Marketing at G.SKILL. “We see amazing performance potential for the new DDR4 memory technology on the newest Intel platform, and very excited to see where it will take us in the near future.”

Super Talent Updates its DDR4 LRDIMM Module Density to 64GB
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 6:29P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of NAND Flash storage solutions, announces its 64GB density DDR4 LRDIMM modules. Super Talent’s quad rank 64GB DDR4 load reduced DIMM modules targeted for server environments which allow more DIMMs per channel to be used in order to take advantage of an increased memory capacity. A buffer chip replaces the register on these modules in order to help minimize loading on a system and increase speeds. Density Part Number 64GB F21LQ64GS Currently platforms running the Haswell–EP are able to take advantage of these modules and at three DIMMs per channel, bandwidth speed gap is increased while latency tax from increasing the DPC has been reduced. This is the advantage of using LRDIMM because as DIMMs per channel increase, LRDIMM offers the lower latencies because it is able to run at higher speeds. All modules are quality tested in house and are built to JEDEC standard specifications with high quality components. DDR4 offers modules up to double the density and speed of previous generation’s DDR3 DRAM while using up to 20% less power which makes it a highly efficient solution for enterprise workloads.

Toshiba Develops World’s First 256Gb, 48-layer BiCS FLASH
     Wed, Aug 19 2015 | 6:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Toshiba Corporation today unveiled the new generation of BiCS FLASH™, a three-dimensional (3D) stacked cell structure flash memory[1]. The new device is the world’s first[2] 256-gigabit (32gigabytes) 48-layer BiCS device and also deploys industry-leading 3-bit-per-cell (triple-level cell, TLC) technology. Sample shipments will start in September.

BiCS FLASH is based on a leading-edge 48-layer stacking process that surpasses the capacity of mainstream two dimensional NAND Flash memory while enhancing write/erase reliability endurance and boosting write speeds. The new 256Gb device is suited for diverse applications, including consumer SSD, smartphones, tablets and memory cards, and enterprise SSD for data centres.

Since announcing prototype BiCS FLASH technology in June 2007, Toshiba has continued development towards optimisation for mass production. To meet further growth in the Flash memory market in 2016 and beyond, Toshiba is proactively promoting migration to BiCS FLASH by rolling out a product portfolio that emphasises large capacity applications, such as SSD.

Toshiba has a long-standing commitment to flash memory, and is currently readying for mass production of BiCS FLASH in a new Fab2 at Yokkaichi Operations, its production site for NAND flash memories. Fab2 will be completed in the first half of 2016.

DDR4 Memory Scaling on Intel Z170
     Mon, Aug 17 2015 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shortly ahead of the Intel Z170 platform launch we heard that the memory controller Intel developed for Skylake was amazing and that the new Intel Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K could come close running DDR4 4000 MHz memory kits in dual-channel. Just days before Intel launched their two new K-Skus that are aimed at enthusiasts and gamers we noticed that G.Skill released a dozen new dual-channel DDR4 memory kits with speeds ranging from 2133 MHz to 4000 MHz. Obviously, the memory controller used on Skylake is rumored to be good, so we asked G.Skill if we could get one of their news kits of memory in to investigate on our own. G.Skill graciously sent over a RipJaws V 8GB (4GB x 2) 3600MHz DDR4 memory kit over for us to play around with and we ran it from DDR4-2133 all the way up to DDR4-3866 to see how performance changed with the additional bandwidth!

Posted by: STAFF
As computers become ever smaller, their storage devices shrink as well. The Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF), also known as m.2, provides not only a smaller envelope for storage devices to fit in, it defines new PCI-E based interfaces as well as the legacy SATA 6G interface. MyDigitalSSD’s Super Boot Drive is equipped with Toshiba toggle NAND and a Phison PS3109 controller, and is Benchmark Review’s test subject for today.

Crucial Ballistix Sport 2400MHz 32GB DDR4 Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Aug 07 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink

With DDR4 prices being driven down in preparation for the launch of a mainstream chipset supporting the memory type, now can be considered a good time to bag a high density quad-channel kit. Combining a quartet of 8GB DIMMs in a quad-channel configuration with an operating frequency of 2400MHz and CL16 timings, how will Crucial’s Ballistix Sport set of memory perform in our testing?

Posted by: STAFF
The last USB 3.0 OTG flash drives we have tested were sporting a smaller footprint and also needed extra protective covers for avoiding damages to their connectors. In this case, the chassis is indeed bigger but no extra accessories are needed, while we can switch from one interface to another just by working with the slider.
