G.SKILL Announces New DDR4-3200MHz 128GB (16GBx8) Memory Kit
     Fri, Jan 29 2016 | 5:34P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is truly excited to announce yet another breakthrough in high-performance, high-capacity DDR4 memory kit by taking a full 128GB (16GBx8), the maximum supported capacity on an X99 motherboard, to an searing speed of DDR4-3200MHz CL14-14-14-34 under 1.35V.

Not only does this massive memory kit manage to max out on supported capacity at high speeds, its latency is also improved to CL14-14-14-34, which is also more efficient than the standard DDR4-2133MHz latency of CL15-15-15-35. At this point, there’s nowhere else to go but faster.

Equipped with XMP 2.0 profiles, this massive memory kit has an easy setup and installation. The following screenshot exhibits the DDR4-3200MHz 128GB (16GBx8) memory kit running comfortably on a MSI X99A GODLIKE Gaming motherboard with an Intel® Core™ i7-5960X processor, even after 42 hours of testing.

The DDR4-3200MHz 128GB (16GBx8) kit is the latest addition to the G.SKILL Ripjaws V series, and will be available via G.SKILL authorized distribution partners by the end of February 2016, at a starting price tag of $1069.99 USD.

TridentZ, Ballistix Sport LT, Vengeance LPX DDR4 Review
     Thu, Jan 21 2016 | 1:42P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be observing the performance from three of the most popular DDR4 kits currently gracing the market. Each kit bears a different frequency, capacity and CAS timings; which should present us with an interesting investigation. In our hands is the G.SKILL TridentZ 16GB 3200MHz kit – recently released specifically for the Z170 chipset, we also have Crucial’s Ballistix Sport LT 16GB 2400MHz, the lowest frequency kit being tested – but the most affordable solution out of the pack. And finally we have Corsair’s renowned Vengeance LPX 32GB 3000MHz kit, which will help us to discover whether a combination of large capacity and frequency is of significant advantage.

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT White DDR4 Memory Review
     Mon, Jan 18 2016 | 4:28P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory, it’s often the most generic part of your system, along with a PSU. Not that all system builders would go for any old RAM, but it can be intangible performance for the cost, especially for DDR4 modules these days. If you are an Intel fan, and you are planning a system, then you need to be including DDR4.

Kingston CompactFlash Ultimate 600x 64GB Memory Card Review
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are quite a few different types of memory cards on the market and thanks to Lexar and their Professional Workflow series I’m able to test almost all of them now. Today I’m starting off our new memory card reviews by taking a closer look at Kingston’s CompactFlash Ultimate 600x card with a capacity of 64GB. Kingston also offers the CompactFlash Ultimate 600x as a 32GB model for those that don’t need as much storage and would like a lower purchase price.

Toshiba 16GB TransMemory U401 USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the Transmemory U401 has a more professional look and durable aluminum body, we were not too happy about its overall performance, especially the one involving writes. The product is falling behind the U201 and the low performance even for an USB 2.0 drive makes it unpleasant even when transferring a lot of small files.

Kingston SSDnow V300 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jan 07 2016 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2016 is almost here and i still remember the time 7-8 years ago when the very first commercial solid state drives (SSDs) made their appearance in the market and gave everyone a glimpse into the future of computers. Today i don't know if things changed as much as we had all hoped back then especially since mechanical disk drives are still the dominant storage media in the market but noone can deny that things have changed for the best. For example where a few years back one would have to update the CPU and RAM of a system to improve its responsiveness now people need just an SSD. However not all has been good in this industry since i bet many of you may still remember some cases where certain manufacturers were accused of using the old "bait and switch" marketing trick with their SSD models. Among those was Kingston and they were accused of replacing the 19nm NAND flash modules found in their first batches of the SSDNow V300 SSD line with lower-performance 20nm asynchronous ones. We did test one of the early V300 models (120GB) back then but since i always heard about this bait and switch trick i decided to take a look at one current SSDnow V300 model to see if what I’ve been hearing for roughly 3 years now is true.

HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 Drive @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jan 06 2016 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With cloud storage I would forgive you if you haven’t thought to much about USB thumb drives recently, I know I have for the most part only been using thumb drives in a few situations where I used to do all of my work directly off of one. The thing is there are situations where the cloud just doesn’t work. A good example of this is with large files but it also can be important when security is a concern and also for installing windows and device drivers. Because of that I have kept a Kingston DataTraveler HyperX drive around. I keep movies and TV shows on it and keep it with my laptop normally because the SSD on my laptop is limited in size. Recently though Kingston introduced a new USB drive in their HyperX brand, the HyperX Savage. They dropped the DataTraveler branding all together and they jumped up to USB 3.1. Today I’m going to take a look at it and find out how it compares to its older brother.

     Mon, Jan 04 2016 | 2:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are testing a brand new 32 GB DDR4-2666 Crucial Ballistix Tactical Kit on OCinside.de, consisting of four 8 GB DDR4 modules or two 16 GB DDR4 kits with two 8 GB modules each. The four DDR4 modules can be used optimally for both X99 systems in quad channel mode, as well as for Z170 PCs in dual channel mode. The Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR4-2666 8 GB CL16 memory modules have XMP 2.0 profiles for easy load of higher rates and are equipped with heat spreader. We have overclocked the DDR4 modules again up to the limit with different voltages, this time with an Intel Core i5-6600K CPU on an ASRock Z170 OC Formula motherboard. Let us begin with the Crucial Ballistix Tactical DDR4 32 GB RAM review.

EVGA 2800 SuperSC DDR4 Memory Review: Exploring Speeds Up To 2800MHz
     Fri, Jan 01 2016 | 2:59P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA decided to branch out this year. No, not with AMD graphics; the company's GPU offerings are still very much based on reference cards from Team Green. Yet, in an effort to expand their product lines, the largest North American vendor of NVIDIA graphics cards now offers their own branded memory modules in both DDR3 and DDR4 flavors, spanning 10 different SKUs. Today, we’re checking out the burliest DRAM module set on offer—the High Performance 2800 SuperSC DDR4 Series 16GB kit (4x4GB). Many DIY builders still using older platforms and DDR3 are wondering if they'll see concrete benefits from a move to a newer platform and DDR4. Newer DDR4 memory is indeed more efficient, faster and made with higher density chip components so you can get higher densities of memory per module...
