A Futurelooks News Flash - Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB (CSSD-N240GBGTX-BK) SATAIII SSD Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 11:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair recently added the Neutron series SSDs to their existing line up. Previous asynchronous and synchronous Force series SSDs all made good use of the SandForce controller. However, the latest Neutron series changes things up adding a Link-a-Media LM87800 controller to an otherwise successful fleet of drives based on Sandforce controllers. It also comes in two different flavors: The Neutron and Neutron GTX. The main difference between the two is the type of NAND Flash inside. The big question is how do they perform? Lets find out! *"

REVIEW: Mach Xtreme MX-ES 16GB USB 3.0 @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 10:04P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mach Xtreme Technology FX 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive sports a USB 3.0 interface to vastly improve performance over the aging USB 2.0, and packs 16GB of 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? Well, we put the MX-ES USB 3.0 to the test to find out."

SSD NEWS: Intel 335 Series SSD Review - Low Price and Performance Through 20nm MLC Memory
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 4:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been roughly two years since the SSD industry transitioned to SATA 3 and many believed that Intel had missed the bus. Early leaks of the `Intel Road Map` showed a mere X25 upgrade creating concern as the industry was graduating to SATA 3 and Intel had no 6Gbps design in place. Intel jumped back to reality with the `Marvel` based Intel 510 SATA 3 SSD and what we have seen since has been no less than remarkable. It is almost like the Intel SSD boardroom has been equipped with a healthy stock of Red Bull. Since the 510, we have seen releases of the 320 Series, 710, 520, 330, 910, and today Intel is introducing it`s 330 update, the Intel 335 Series 20nm SATA 3 SSD which is being released in only a 240GB capacity at this point. With an MSRP of only $184, we may soon see 240GB SSD pricing get pushed down to that of the 120/128GB level before you know it. The true question will be whether 20nm horsepower can finally allow for that sweet value/performance handshake the SSD arena has been waiting for."

Silicon Power Marvel M60 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Oct 29 2012 | 1:51P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With prices of SSD drives taking a serious dive in the past 6 months (so did the quality of some) USB flash drives are not doing much better and so pretty much everyone can now carry at least 32GB of data without worrying about the cost. However capacity is not the only single thing that defines a USB Flash Drive and so leaving out consumers who care more about the design and size of one such device there are also those who care mostly about performance. Now performance (or speed) is perhaps the hardest thing to come by since most manufacturers nowadays pay more attention to size and design in an effort to keep cost to a minimum. So today our main goal is to find out whether or not the latest Marvel M60 USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Silicon Power is just all about looks like most similar devices in the market."

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year I had the chance to visit the OCZ offices. While being shown the offices I could sense the excitement. At that time they finally had the Indilinx crew in the office and they were very excited about how having an in house NAND Controller and firmware production would change the future of OCZs SSD business. The first drive that Indilinx had a hand in was the OCZ Vertex 4. Today we are going to put the Vertex 4 to the test in our new benchmark suite along with a few other SATA 3 drives to see how they perform. I hope that the same excitement that I saw in the OCZ offices will equal top notch performance from their current flagship SSD."

Patriot Intel Extreme Masters Edition 2133M
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nowadays, memory tends to be more of a battle over who can bin the tightest, as all ICs shipping for the most part are pretty much the same. In the memory market it all comes down to how you can differentiate yourself from the same old stuff that we may see every day. Patriot has the new Viper 3 series which is what this kit is part of, and carrying the Intel Extreme Masters means it went through extensive testing to prove utmost compatibility with new DDR3 motherboards and XMP easy tuning."

Patriot Supersonic Boost XT and Rage 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Oct 28 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Patriot Supersonic Boost XT and Rage XT 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drives are positioned for more than the average user. Both the Boost XT and Rage feature faster speeds and can be purchased in higher than average capacities. The Boost XT is the slower of the two, featuring read speeds up to 90MB/s. However, the Boost XT is built with a hard rubber casing giving it a rugged design. The Boost XT is both water and shock resistant. The Rage was built for speed. This flash drive has been rated with read speeds up to 180MB/s and write speeds of 50MB/s. The Rage uses a capless and thinner design for easier portability. Both come with a 5 year warranty."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Intel Extreme Masters XMP Certified Viper III 1866MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot Memory Intel Extreme Masters XMP Certified Viper III 1866MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review* A few weeks ago, we got a hands on look at Patriot Memorys new Viper III DDR3 memory in the 2133 MHz flavor. We discovered that the ICs underneath the light weight, attractive spreaders were Hynix and offer about 2GB/s more memory bandwidth compared to many of the other modules on the market that utilize high quality Micron or Samsung chips. While the Viper III is XMP Ready, the Intel Extreme Masters is XMP Certified. In other words, its certified to work on any Intel Z77 chipset confirmed by Intel. Lets have a look at the IEM memory and see what more it can offer consumers. *"

Patriot Intel Extreme Masters DDR3-2133 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 8:29A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I am a huge fan of special or limited edition memory kits. Memory has sort of been boring the past year as not much has really changed and products like SSDs are being chosen as the main component to speed up your system when it comes to an upgrade. The kit we are taking a look at today from Patriot was made for Intels Extreme Masters gaming tournaments. The kit features a very unique and stylish design and is available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB kits up to 2133MHz in either dual or quad channel configurations. The kits are tested to work with Intel 6 and 7 series chipsets, are XMP certified and have a lifetime warranty. Read on as we take a look at this limited edition memory!"

Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133Mhz 16GB Review
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What Corsair has to offer with this set of modules is a kit that will run with the best kits out on the market at stock speeds yet offers the ability to really push the limits of your CPU`s memory controller when it comes time to overclock them for added performance margins. Top that off with a unique industrial look and the ability to use the light bar feature to customize the modules and you have a kit that delivers excellent performance while looking great. At 2133Mhz, the Dominator Platinum modules are by no means a slow kit. Overclocking yielded a 15% boost in clock speed to 2481Mhz using timings of 9-12-11-30 and 1.695v. A pretty decent boost all the while running Cas 9 at close to 2500Mhz."
