Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 2x8GB DDR3-1600 RAM @ TechwareLabs.com
     Sun, Aug 18 2013 | 5:46P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to system performance, RAM is a component that gets far less attention than it should. While it may have less of an impact than the CPU or GPU, RAM can still be a major bottleneck on performance. Today we`re going to be taking a look at the latest kit from Crucial`s Ballistix Sport XT line, a 2x8GB kit rated for DDR3 1600. While not pushing the bleeding edge on performance, this kit should still post some solid performance numbers."

: Kingston 64GB microSDXC Class 10 Memory Card Review
     Sat, Aug 17 2013 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For today’s review we will be looking at the Kingston 64 GB micro SDXC card. This is a class 10 micro SD card ideal for shooting videos, taking pictures as well as providing storage for music, games and all other kinds of data. Most commonly these cards are used for mobile devices such as Android phones and tablets. These microSDs are a great way to max out those device’s capacities. Since Kingston includes an SD card adapter this micro size memory card can be used in other devices that use the larger storage format such a digital cameras and video recorders. Let’s take a closer look. "

G.Skill RipjawsX 2x4GB DDR3-2400 CL11 1.65V Review @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Aug 14 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is sometimes scary to realise how fast time actually flies. Case in point, G.Skills Ripjaws series has been around for almost four years, which might seem like an enternity by IT standards. Meant to contribute to this achievement, comes a fresh 8 GB 2400C11 model which we are going to have a look at today."

CoreRise Comay Venus Pro 120GB SSD Review
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Node 605 can accommodate expensive gaming hardware, it looks sexy and the build quality is exceptional. So, if you are looking for a HTPC the Node 605 is a great choice, just plan out your build ahead of time to avoid compatibility issues.

49 SD and MicroSD cards tested: there's a difference
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SD and MicroSD have the most popular type of memory card for some time. People use them for digital cameras, smartphones, tablets and other portable devices that require storage. There's a huge number of them on the market, and not all of them are equally fast. The specifications from the manufacturers won't be able to tell you, so Hardware.Info tested 49 of them to find out which ones are the fastest.

Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-1 256GB Card Review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-1 Card is available in capacities of 64, 128 and 256GB, the later being an industry first for this form factor. Performance is listed at sustained 90MB/s read (hence the 600x) and we can give you a heads up that it also pushes a healthy 45MB/s write performance. The card includes a $45 full version copy of Lexar Image Rescue 4 software which will recover deleted and corrupt files from the card and, remarkably, this card comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

Mushkin Ventura USB 3.0 64GB
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Mushkin Ventura 64GB flash drive sports a USB 3.0 interface to vastly improve performance, packing a huge capacity onto a form factor that can fit onto your key ring. But what about performance? Around here, we think Performance is King, so just how fast is this flash drive from Mushkin? Let’s find out.”

Mach Xtreme MX-FX 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB Flash Drives have been around for almost 13 years now and according to some people they were the stepping stone on which solid state drives were eventually developed for consumer use (although SSDs in general have been around for much longer). Naturally however since solid state drives either use SATA or PCIex connectivity they are quite faster than even the fastest USB flash drive and although in "theory" the specifications of USB 3.0 come really close in the end we may never see USB 3.0 based flash drives with speeds exceeding 350-400MB/s. Still it's very rare to come across a USB 3.0 based flash drive with speeds exceeding the 200MB/s mark and to my knowledge there are just a handful of drive models currently in the market that can achieve that number mostly manufactured from Kingston and Corsair. Well it seems that Mach Xtreme (MX-Technology) is also ready to jump on the same wagon with their latest MX-FX USB 3.0 flash drives.

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 1866 MHz 4x4GB Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Fri, Aug 09 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 1866 MHz 4x4 GB kit. The Sport XT offers good speeds, sleek looks, and a fair price. At 1866 MHz there is plenty of speed to get things done, and being a 16 GB kit, you are very unlikely to ever run out of memory again. Read on to see how it performs with our A10-6800k."

Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 4:37P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon RG2133 Gamer Series memory kit contains four 4GB DDR3-2133 (PC3-17000) memory modules and is rated to work at 1.65V with 10-11-11-30 latency. AMD's Radeon Memory Gamer Series features supports for AMP and XMP Profiles 1, 2, and a low profile design for a better clearance for large CPU cooler clearance while still offering enhanced heat dissipation. Find out how this $154.99 USD quad-channel kit fares in our review!

Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866MHz (2x8GB) Memory Kit Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Aug 07 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our roundup last week we took a look at a range of high end Z87 boards which were ideal to build a performance based Haswell system on. Of course as well as our board and CPU we need a great kit of memory to help us maximise performance. Corsair aim to do exactly that with their new Vengeance Pro modules and today we have a 16GB kit on our test bench."

DDR3 Memory Modules
     Tue, Aug 06 2013 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is much more than Gaming products, DDR3 Memory Modules and Power Supply Units. They produce a wide range of other products, and have over the last couple of years focused on Gamers and overclockers. In this review we look at their new Corsair Obsidian 900D Case, that was announced earlier this year.

Team Group Color Turn 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are definitely faster USB 3.0 flash drives on the market, but with a price tag of under $25, the Team Group Color Turn 32GB unit definitely has its appeal. Coming in with about 60MB/s read and 25MB/s write when transferring large files was acceptable to me. Getting the files on there may take longer than I'd like, but accessing them once on the drive is far quicker.

Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks back, SanDisk launched a new line of Class 10 UHS-I microSDHC / microSDXC cards targeted at performance conscious consumers. When describing the cards, SanDisk's director of retail product marketing Susan Park said, "The SanDisk Extreme microSDXC card allows users to do more with their devices.Our high-performance and high-capacity microSD cards enable consumers to take advantage of the high-quality HD video and imaging capabilities in the latest 4G smartphones, tablets and action cameras." With up to 80MB/s read and 50MB/s write speeds, the new SanDisk Extreme microSDXC cards should easily be able to handle the needs of users taking photos and videos on today's mobile devices, be it a smartphone or tablet or even a high-end camera. And with capacities up to 64GB, the cards offer plenty of storage space too...

8GB ADATA XPG V2 DDR3 2400 Memory Review @ RWLabs
     Thu, Aug 01 2013 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA went all out when designing their XPG V2 memory. They used extremely high quality ICs, an efficient and sleek looking heatspreader and the build quality is top notch. All of this attention to detail allowed the memory to perform excellent at the default frequency, but it also gives this kit overclocking headroom that puts most memory kits to shame.

Lexar JumpDrive P10 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, Jul 31 2013 | 3:59P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lexar turns up the heat on the USB 3.0 flash drive market with the P10 pen drive. We have it in house for testing."
