comparison between DDR3 and DDR4 on Intel's Skylake platform
     Fri, Dec 04 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Skylake architecture is the only one that supports both DDR3 and DDR4 memory. But with all other things being equal, is one really "better" than the other on the Z170 platform?

HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Flash Drive Review
     Fri, Nov 27 2015 | 4:51P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The product that I’m looking at today is the HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Gen 1 device that just came out this month and is available in 64 GB, 128GB and 256 GB capacities. This is the first USB Flash Drive that I’ve received that touts being compliant with the USB 3.1 Gen 1 specifications set by the USB-Implementers Forum (USB-IF) to take full advantage of the latest USB Type-A ports in newer devices. Read on to see how it performs!

Kingston USB 3.1 HyperX Savage 128GB
     Thu, Nov 19 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After running the HyperX Savage USB 3.1 drive through the test suite, it's hard not to like this drive. The quote on Kingston's web site is a performance rating of up to 350MB/s read and 250MB/s write. In a couple of tests, it surely got there covering both ends of the rating. However, in some tests it struggled to reach the rated 250MB/s write rating. Overall though, this has to be the highest performing flash drive I have tested to date. In the file transfer test, the Savage delivered a 28% performance boost over the comparison drive. The higher throughput in the sequential testing allows for quicker transfer times that save time when you are on the go. With ever increasing file sizes, the need for greater NAND capacity in a smaller package creates some performance problems that the HyperX Savage addresses. The 128GB capacity of this drive would allow me to transfer the entire contents of my work laptop to a single flash drive. Pretty amazing when you think about it."

GSKill TridentZ 3466Mhz CL16 DDR4 Dual Channel Memory Review
     Thu, Nov 19 2015 | 1:34P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we looked at the GSKill TridentZ DDR4 3466Mhz Dual Channel memory kit. These are a new series of high-performance memory designed for the Intel Z170 Skylake platform.

Mushkin Blackline DDR4-2800 8GB Memory
     Wed, Nov 18 2015 | 11:53A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the longest time Mushkin was a company that was leading the game when it came to computer memory. When they released a new kit it was what everyone was talking about and most people I knew had Mushkin memory. I am not sure what happened but Mushkin was not talked about as much and many people I knew moved on to other brands for their computer memory. Well Mushkin wants you to think about them again when it comes to computer memory and today we have their latest DDR4 Blackline memory on the review block today! Today we are taking a look at the 997207T kit which is an 8GB (2x4GB) kit that runs at 2800 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.2V. Did I mention this kit has a pretty nifty heatspreader as well? Let’s take a look!"

Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 16GB
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the release of its Skylake Core processors, Intel introduced a new 1151 socket and Z170 chipset design. Rather than previous generation mainstream desktop configurations using DDR3, Intel opted to adopt the latest DDR4 also used in their high-end/enthusiast X99 platform. The DDR4 specification starts at 2133 and currently runs up to 3400 and will certainly continue higher as frequencies improve. For our Skylake build, Kingston sent over a 2x8GB kit of their latest HyperX Fury modules in DDR4-2666 speed. Join us as we take a closer look at the Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 memory.”

Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-3400 8GB Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Nov 12 2015 | 3:06P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this year we took a look at our first Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit from Patriot. That kit was a quad-channel kit designed for the X99 platform. Now that Intel’s Z170 chipset is here we have dual-channel DDR4 which we’ve seen to be more stable at higher frequencies. Patriot has sent us one of their latest Viper 4 DDR4 kits which is an 8GB dual-channel kit that runs at 3400 MHz! With official timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V the PV48G340C6K kit is set to perform quite well on Z170 systems. On top of the fast speeds the memory kit features a custom-designed heatspreader that is black and red that will match many popular motherboards out there. Let’s get this memory installed and see what it can do!"

Crucial Ballistix Sport 2400MHz 16GB Dual Channel DDR4
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel dropped the initial Skylake offerings and naturally there’s a bevy of new Motherboards and Ram flooding the component pipeline faster than ever before. Crucial is always ready for a new platform and today we have a kit of Ballistix 2400MHz 16GB dual Channel DDR4 to take a look at. Coming in at $114.99 the Ballistix 2400MHz 16GB DC kit is actually in the very affordable range considering its tight timings of 16 16 16 39.

SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sun, Nov 08 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got the third USB 3.0 flash drive in my little series of reviews. This one is a massive 128gb in capacity but yet it’s tiny in size. The drive is called the Ultra Fit and it’s from SanDisk and I’ve tested it and it’s fast, very fast and I compared it to the other USB 3.0 flash dries I’ve got on hand. Read on to learn more… "

The G.Skill Ripjaws V DDR4-3000 2x8GB features a sharp red heatspreader, speedy performance, and lots of capacity.

Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB DDR4 2666MHz
     Fri, Nov 06 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Skylake processors landed with a thundering applause and stores are sold out of the I7 6700K and production can’t keep up with demand yet. Since it’s not Intel’s “HEDP” High End Desktop Platform it uses Dual Channel Ram. The Haswell E (x99) processors use Quad Channel ram and we were a bit shocked to see Skylake drop with Dual Channel ram. Regardless of that the memory companies are locked into producing what Intel gears chipsets for so there are a slew of Dual Channel memory kits hitting the market. Today we have some Kingston HyperX Fury 2666 (15 17 17) in a 16GB Ram kit.

Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 2666MHz C16 Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Nov 04 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Supporting the latest XMP 2.0 standard, this kit was designed to be fully compatible with the Intel X99 and 100 Series systems, while the 16GB modules are running at 2666MHz 16-18-18-35, while keeping low voltage of 1.2V. The LPX code name suggests that we are dealing with a low-profile kit, which assures good clearance with all large CPU heatsinks. As we have seen in our tests, the kit can also run at higher speeds than the rated one so we have succeeded to reach 2933MHz while keeping the stock timings, but the voltage needed a small bump at 1.35V.

Crucial BX200 Review
     Tue, Nov 03 2015 | 1:19P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the new BX200. This drive supersedes the BX100 and is Micron’s first TLC-based solid state solution. The BX200 is available in three different capacities – 240GB, 480GB and 960GB. The usual benefits from a SATA SSD continue by offering superior transfer rates to a mechanical drive, better efficiency and stronger reliability; the main difference is going to be the extremely aggressive pricing which sees the largest capacity option (960GB) arrive with street price of just £220 GBP - $299 USD!

Kingston 16GB DataTraveler microDuo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 1:48P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got another USB 3.0 flash drive, this one is from Kingston and it’s called the DataTraveler microDuo and it’s 16gb in capacity. This drive is tiny and offer very fast read speeds but what makes it special is the fact that is also has a microUSB connector built-into it so you can use it as external storage for your phone or tablet. Read on to learn more… "

KLEVV Cras 3200MHz 16GB DDR4 Review
     Mon, Nov 02 2015 | 1:48P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may not have heard of KLEVV – the newest player on the consumer memory scene. KLEVV’s parent company, Essencore, falls under the same SK Group umbrella corporation as semiconductor giant SK Hynix. We are looking at KLEVV‘s flagship DDR4 memory line – the Cras series. The specific kit that we are examining is KLEVV’s fastest available set of memory with operational characteristics of 3200MHz and 16-18-18 timings in a 16GB set.
