Kingston SSDnow M2 SATA 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has a long line of storage options for about every usage you could have. Today I’m taking a look at the SSDnow M.2 SATA Solid State Drive with a capacity of 120GB. The M.2 modules are also known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) and these thin and compact modules save space in small and embedded systems, ultra-thin devices, or it will just fit snuggly into your motherboards M.2 slot in your desktop system. The caseless design allows easier integration as well as keeping the weight as low as possible; a big factor when used in Ultrabooks and similar devices. The 2280 module (22mm width, 80mm length) supports advanced garbage collection, wear-levelling and TRIM to keep up the performance over the entire lifetime of the drive; so we should see very stable performance in our tests on the following pages. S.M.A.R.T. is also supported for peace of mind and health monitoring.

Patriot Viper 4 16GB PC4-24000 Memory
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After putting the Viper 4 modules through their paces, you can see that clock speed and timings do have an effect on performance when looking at the synthetic scores. Comparing the performance of Patriots Viper 4 3000MHz rated 16GB kit to a pair of 2800MHz rated kits illustrates this perfectly in most of the test cases. When gaming or in the PCMark testing, the additional memory clock speed did not help much in the way of added performance. A key to drive performance upwards with DDR4 modules is to tune the primary timings as tight as you can get them, with the voltage you are comfortable with, and the tune the secondary and third timings to get the most bang for your proverbial buck. Couple that with tuning the cache ratio a bit higher and you continue to increase memory bandwidth to supply the quad channel controller in Intels Latest Xtreme X99 platform and Haswell-E processors.”

Lexar Workflow DD512 USB 3.0 Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all external storage drives are equally suited for every scenario and there are a lot of different drives on the market. Most of these are branded for the ultra durability or portability. There is a third kind of external storage drives, those that need to be practical as well as universal in their everyday usage. Lexar has created a unique line of mobile storage products dubbed the Professional Workflow series and is based on the USB 3.0 connectors. The series consists of several card readers that support the newest and fastest memory cards, as well as storage drives with either 256GB or 512GB storage capacity. Today I’m taking a look at the Professional Workflow DD512 USB 3.0 storage drive with a capacity of 512GB.

Kingston HyperX Savage (16GB)
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 1:57P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Currently, Kingston HyperX memory modules features four lines of products: Fury, Savage, Predator, and Impact. The Fury and Savage are aimed for mainstream market while the Predator is aimed for the extreme overclockers. Unlike the Predator that comes with a large heat spreader and clockspeed up to 2800MHz, both the Fury and Savage features standard size heat spreader. As you may expect, the Fury and the Savage are clocked at slightly lower speed than the Predator where we can find the Fury clocked at speed up to 1866MHz and the Savage at clockspeed up to 2400 MHz. Today, we have gotten the 2133MHz Savage that we will put it through our tests.

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 Quad-Channel
     Wed, Mar 04 2015 | 2:59P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4-2400 16GB kit. The Crucial Ballistix Sport is designed for performance enthusiasts and anyone who simply wants to get more out of their system. With Micron’s 35 years of experience in the DDR memory market there is no doubt in my mind that the Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 can deliver a high level of reliability and performance at a current price of $230.

Intel NUC NUC5i5RYK Running HyperX Impact 1600MHz & 1866MHz
     Sun, Mar 01 2015 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month when we published our review on the Intel NUC NUC5i5RYK we tested using a 1600MHz DDR3L 1.35V memory kit. We found the new Intel Core i5-5250U Broadwell-U processor was a very capable processor with a standard 1600MHz kit, but a number of readers were quick to ask about the performance gains that could be gained from using faster clocked memory. It turns out that right now there is no price difference between a Kingston HyperX Impact Black 8GB 1600MHz CL9 memory kit versus a Kingston HyperX Impact Black 8GB 1866MHz CL10 memory kit. Since both DDR3L SODIMM kits are the same price we have a feeling that most people are going to want to go with the 1866MHz kit despite the slightly looser CL10 timings. Read on to see how the NUC performs with both 1600MHz and 1866MHz memory kits!

Silicon Power Mobile X31 OTG USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Madshrimps
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 10:36A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silicon Power has recently introduced its lightweight mobile USB 3.0 OTG drive which can be used to transport and transfer data between multiple mobile devices and while its read speeds are pretty good, it falls a bit short on the writes; considering that the Android and Windows tablets which support this function are mostly USB 2.0, the lower write speeds should not be such a bit inconvenience, but when copying data from our PCs to the drive, we can see it lagging a bit."

Toshiba TransMemory-EX II USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TransMemory-EX II is not a product to skip from Toshiba since it features very good transfer speeds when working with large files (confirmed from the performed benchmarks), a solid build and also comes with EX II Pad Locker, which adds value to the product.

SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB USB3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
True to form there is always one manufacturer that sees this weakness in the market and ventures on to resolve the problem with a new class of drive and this is exactly what SanDisk has aimed to do with the Extreme PRO USB3.0 flash drive. Although we don’t know exactly which NAND in particular has been used, going by the specs we could make a fair bet that its of a synchronous variety and guaging by the sixe of the drive there could easily be two NAND packages alongside the drives controller. That said though, all of this is packed into an aluminium and black plastic body and with read and write speeds of 260MB/s and 240MB/s respectively on offer, we are touching on the performance that SATAII SSDs have to give. Sounds good doesn’t it? Boasting up to 60x the performance of USB2.0 flash drives is a big thing to shout about so it’s all down to those all important performance results to make or break SanDisk’s claims that this is truly an Extreme performing drive.

Intel NUC5i5RYK
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 2:25P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But Intel's development team continues to push the NUC platform forward and today we are evaluating the most recent iteration. The Intel NUC5i5RYK is based on the latest 14nm Broadwell processor and offers improved CPU performance, a higher speed GPU and lower power consumption. All of this is packed into a smaller package than any previous NUC on the market and the result is both impressive and totally expected.

ADATA XPG Z1 16GB 2400MHz DDR4 Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Feb 24 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5820K has shown that a strong boost in CPU performance can be obtained for a reasonable price increase over the LGA 1150 Core i7 CPUs. And many of the X99 motherboards sit well below £200, making them affordable to enthusiast buyers. But where that entire value logic of Intel’s X99 platform starts to fall short is at the expense of DDR4 memory.
