Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 Review
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last Ballistix Sport we reviewed impressed us and attained our Silver award so this latest revision has a lot to live up to. The new revision doesn't appear to add very much on paper. In fact we struggled to see any difference. Even the heatspreaders themselves appeared near identical. Looking closer however and we see the heatspreader design has been tweaked slightly with vents uppermost and a digital camouflage sticker across the midriff. Is this enough to improve on the Ballistix Sports last outing though? Read on to find out...

KLEVV NEO DDR3 8GB 2400MHz Memory Kit Review
     Sat, May 02 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of computer memory, the first companies that come to mind are usually the top manufacturers such as Kingston, Corsair, Crucial, Patriot, G.Skill and several others. When choosing memory, most of us immediately go for these companies as they are well known and have proven themselves capable of manufacturing top quality memory. With already so many great companies manufacturing memory, it can be difficult for a new company to enter this competitive market. Founded in 2014, KLEVV is Essencore’s house brand for memory; Essencore is a division of SK Group, which owns SK Hynix; so in a long way around, KLEVV is part of SK Hynix. Read on to see how our KLEVV memory kit performs!

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB Solid State
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston now has a full line of solid state drives to offer to consumers. We have already taken a look at their HyperX Predator PCI-Express solid state drive on the high end and they have their HyperX Fury, which is more entry level. Filling in the mid-range is the HyperX Savage, which effectively replaces the HyperX 3K solid state drive. The drive is powered by the Phison PS3110-S10 quad core, eight-channel controller that is the same controller that we saw on Corsair’s Neutron XT drive. The drive is also Kingston’s fastest SATA-based solid state drive with sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. Will this be the solid state drive to get in 2015? Read on as we find out!"

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 2400MHz Review
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Ballistix performance series memory has proven popular for their stock performance, overclock-ability, quality and the ever changing style employed by Crucial. We are looking at the latest addition to the Ballistix family, the Ballistix Sport LT. These should land right between the Sport models and the higher end Elite kits, hopefully netting us the best of both worlds, tighter timings and high clocks.”

Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB 3000MHz Quad Channel DDR4 Kit Review
     Mon, Apr 13 2015 | 4:33P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With every type of product there’s always a particular brand or SKU that rules the roost, that pushes the boundaries in terms of quality and performance. In the world of desktop computer memory there are a few of these: Corsair’s Dominator Platinum and G.Skill’s RipJaws are a couple of examples but today we have one of the most established and prestigious: Kingston’s HyperX Predator series. The Predator name doesn’t just get put onto any old memory module: Kingston reserve it for the craziest frequencies, the highest quality cherry picked and speed binned SKUs and to top it all off there’s a whopping great big heatsink to keep things running cool. The specific kit we have today operates at a crazy 3000MHz, or 3GHz, and remember this is just the memory. That means the memory operates at the same frequency as the Core i7 5960X’s base frequency – crazy! Due to the super high frequency this kit also comes with a large heat spreader to tame the high 1.5 volts needed and it also comes with a high price tag which we’ll get onto later. First let’s go over the specifications of this product:

Intel, Micron unveil new 3D NAND flash memory
     Fri, Apr 03 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel and Micron have jointly announced the availability of their 3D NAND technology. This new 3D NAND technology, jointly developed by the companies, stacks layers of data storage cells vertically to create storage devices with three times higher capacity than competing NAND technologies. This enables more storage in a smaller space, bringing significant cost savings, lower power usage and higher performance to a range of mobile consumer devices as well as the most demanding enterprise deployments, the companies claimed.

Kingston HyperX Cloud II Gaming
     Thu, Apr 02 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last year we took a look at Kingston’s original HyperX Cloud Gaming headset and there really was not much to not like about it. Now on its second iteration we are quite excited to see what Kingston has done to make this headset even better. The biggest change is the addition of 7.1 virtual surround sound via a USB controller with DSP sound card. Do not worry though you still have the ability to use the Cloud II with a 3.5 mm plug if you wish. Kingston has pretty much retained the same design with the Cloud II as we saw on the original headset. This means you have that brushed aluminum build with a very comfortable headband, stitched HyperX logo, and two sets of earcups. Is this the gaming headset for you? Read on as we find out…"
