New HyperX Red Memory
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks invites Kingston’s Canadian Product Evangelist, Mr. Mike Smith, back to the studio to talk about all the new products coming out this time of year. On the agenda this week is a look at Kingston’s HyperX RED Limited Edition modules, their brand new HyperX 3K SSD which will be hitting the shelves soon at a new lower price point, and we’ll also be looking at some USB drive innovations including their DT Micro product and a word on USB flash drive security.

latest Corsair Dominator GT Kit
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ile last year was the push for higher frequencies netting us outrageous 2600 MHz kits, this year is primed to be the year of capacity. As the standard capacity of any gaming or enthusiast platform increases from 8GB to 16GB and larger, we will start to see even higher density kits released. Today we look at one such kit, the Corsair Dominator GT 32GB Kit.

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 (Indilinx Everest 2) 256GB and 512GB SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:17A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I find OCZ`s current situation similar to the early 1990`s 49ers. OCZ had a very good run with SandForce, winning best consumer SSD awards with both the Vertex 2 and a year later with Vertex 3. Just like Joe, the SandForce SF-2000 series is starting to look a little older and the young competition from other makers is starting to catch up. SandForce might offer the fastest controller to date, but that might not be the case starting next season. Before Steve Young was traded to the 49ers he played in Tampa Bay. There he had two horrible seasons, but everyone could see the talent including 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. Indilinx, in their later years as a separate company was not competitive with controllers from Intel and Samsung. In a sense OCZ traded to pick up Indilinx, mainly their RAM and peripherals product lines (they were actually just dropped). In their yearly product cycle OCZ was ready to release something new, something fresh, but their star quarterback SandForce was injured. OCZ had already released an impressive top to bottom lineup of products based on the SandForce technology so there weren`t any gaps to fill with SandForce based products."

Corsair Vengeance M90 Performance MMO and RTS Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 8:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the inception of the first point and click device for computers, there has been someone sitting in a corner thinking to themselves what can I do to make this better and more useful? Over many years of evolution we went from mice with just one button on them, to mice with a pair of buttons and a scroll wheel. For many users this is more than enough to deal with as far as their point and click needs go for emails or finding a recipe for Peking duck for the next family gathering. For me, I prefer a mouse to have as many buttons on it as comfortably possible. By this I mean that if given enough buttons to my mice, I prefer to set my gun swap there, grenades, knife, even the push to talk for whatever application I am on at the time I am gaming. The latter part is the biggest concern to me and that is giving me what I want in options without having an odd shape or having to contort my hands in painful ways to utilize all of the buttons. Corsair matches the K90 keyboard we just looked at with a gaming mate in the Vengeance series. This compatriot in action will allow users to not only have functionality for MMO and RTS games, but the ability it offers the FPS gamers isn`t so shabby either. In the evolution of mice, a lot of us prefer a page forward, page back and selectable DPI on the fly is also something that most of us are getting used to by now. What most of us aren`t used to in mice is the sleek and attractive package that this newest submission has incorporated into this design from Corsair. Things like an aluminum frame and the blue and white LEDs are things that lend it to be the perfect mate to sit alongside the K90 as you will soon see for yourself."

G.Skill Ripjaws X F3 2133C9Q-32GXH Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 11:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X Series heat shields do an excellent job of dissipating the thermal load of these modules. Not that there is a significant thermal load when running at 1.6v, but they are there for the times you want to get a bit adventurous with the voltages and overclocking. Overclocking margins are not what I was looking for, but nevertheless, I was able to pull an extra 100+ MHz or 5.5% out of the modules that generated a nice boost in performance across the test suite. The modules look great and will fit into just about any build."

Six months ago, VisionTek took on an ambitious task of trying to tap into this arena.

G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Intel?s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory. It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory. Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform. Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH). This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28. Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit."

     Tue, Mar 27 2012 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G.Skill sent us a little surprise, in a 32 GB package. The G.Skill RipjawsX F3-2133C9Q-32GXH kit not only offers huge capacity and speed, but also a little something extra. Intended for P67/Z68, the GSkill F3-2133C9Q-32GXH maxes out the speed, but also the size those platforms offer.

Ivy Bridge High-Speed RAM Run
     Sun, Mar 25 2012 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before we get into getting the kit up and running we've got to quickly some of the more major details of our testbed. On the motherboard side of things we're using the brand new GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H. As for the CPUs, we've got both the Intel Core i5 3570k and higher end Core i7 3770k Ivy Bridge based parts. We've got our fingers crossed we've got everything we need to hit that 2666MHz DDR memory clock. Unfortunately off the bat we didn't. We found that our i7 3770k was capping out around the 2600MHz DDR mark, a little shy of the default 2666MHz DDR. Fortunately being based out of Taiwan and creating a vast network of people we managed to hunt down a Ivy Bridge 3770k from someone and sliding it into our testbed we had that running 2666MHz DDR straight away."

[Affiliates News] G.Skill Ares F3-1600C8Q-16GAB 4x4GB DDR3 RAM Review @ APH
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 4:38P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a German student in my power engineering class with a very strong accent. As such, my professor likes to call him `Germany` in a humorous, good-natured way. One time, he was asked to come to the front of the class match up against another student in deriving a certain equation. Where are we doing this? Germany asked aloud. In the skies of Southern England, I blurted out, albeit somewhat silently, near the back of the room. Whether you like it or not, war and conflict between nations has always been an integral part of human history. Sure, it is terrible -- I am not going to skirt around that question as we live in relative peace here in North America. We can only thank all the people who have put their lives on the line, and continue to do so as I type this paragraph, so that we can enjoy everything we have right now. People in the past had their culture deeply integrated with armed conflicts as well. In ancient Greek mythology, Ares is the god of war and violence. According to Burkert`s book Greek Religion, Ares is a powerful Olympian who is overwhelming, insatiable in battle, destructive, and man-slaughtering (1985, p. 169). With G.Skill naming their latest line of RAM after the Greek god of war, are we to expect something that can simply blow the competition out of the water? We took a G.Skill Ares F3-1600C8Q-16GAB 4x4GB DDR3 RAM kit in this morning, and see if it really packs the power to destroy under the hood."

GSkill RipjawsZ PC3 17000 CL9 Quad Channel Memory
     Tue, Mar 20 2012 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When building a high-performance system you need to ensure that you are using the right components for your application. In the case of gaming and overclocking your choice of memory module can often be crucial in leveling out low framerates and getting the best performance possible especially when paired with the latest Sandy Bridge processor from Intel.

G.Skill ARES PC3-17000 16GB (DC) Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Mar 16 2012 | 5:12P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ARES series is ultimately designed for those who have really large air coolers and need a lower profile heatsink, which is something we don`t see a lot of company`s offering these days as more and more feel bigger is better. Available in both blue and orange you can see above we`re of course got our hand on one of the blue kits which looks great (Ed: and matches the TweakTown color scheme great!). While the kit does consist of four modules, it`s worth knowing that the ARES series at the moment is still only a Dual Channel kit designed for the P67 / Z68 platform along with hopefully the upcoming Z77. With our X79 testbed so close, though, we`ll see how the kit fairs in Quad Channel today as well as Dual Channel."
