Corsair Performance Pro Series 256 GB Review
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 11:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Across the board, the Performance Pro 256 GB drive offers excellent performance. It easily reaches its rated speeds of up to 515 MB/s sequential read and 440 MB/s sequential write in the ATTO testing. What is more impressive, are its results in CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD, where the Performance Pro delivered the highest performance of any non-RAID drive I have looked at so far. In the IO Meter testing, the Performance Pro was easily the highest performing drive once again. Corsair and Marvell have put together a drive that just flat-out delivers. Priced competitively at $419, the 256 GB Corsair Performance Pro drive easily makes the short list. It`s priced right, delivers awesome performance, is built with high-end performance in mind, and comes with a 3 year warranty."

SilverStone Raven RVS02 USB 3 .0 2.5 Enclosure Review @ APH
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 6:45P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 1992, one of the world`s greatest events in automotive history was achieved with the production of the world`s fastest production road car, the McLaren F1. Such an achievement was described as the finest driving machine to may possibly be the fastest production road car the world will ever see. And to this day -- almost two decades later -- the car is still praised and respected by car enthusiasts around the globe. Now, as an avid fan of the automotive industry, I am not about to describe to you the engineering spectacles behind McLaren Automotive`s McLaren F1. However, I will tell you that the machine was built for the sole purpose of reaching ridiculous speeds on the road. How did they do this? Well, one way was to use extremely expensive materials like building the car with a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis -- the very first production car to have done this. Another way was to design a gearbox that could withstand the power and torque from the car`s engine. Heck, the F1 could also have been described as to have been stripped completely bare from the usually ordinary comforts in most cars like ABS and traction control. Today, from SilverStone, we may just have such a device on our hands -- the Raven RVS02 2.5 HDD enclosure. To my knowledge, not many enclosures incorporate a carbon fiber-like design. And much like the McLaren F1, it seems the Raven RVS02 also has been stripped from the usual comforts, making it extremely simple. However, one large question still remains. Does the Raven RVS02 outperform other USB 3.0 enclosures in speed? Read on to find out!"

Don`t forget that,Futurelooks kicks out one last review before the holidays. Thanks to all the news posters for all you do! *G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 2133 MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit Review * People often don?t realize that a PCs are built for a certain purpose. When it comes to the focus of a PC build, the items you tweak are always the graphics, CPU, storage, and memory. For example, a person who needs a PC for audio/video editing will need much more RAM than someone who is building gaming system. If you need more than the now standard 4 GB of RAM, then the G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 2133 MHz RAM may just be what you need and they come with a massive frequency boost over the run of the mill 1333 or 1600MHz modules. * * *"

They produce graphic cards, network cards, TV tuners, power supplies, and recently, memory.

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimat e G2 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 6:45P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nations rise and nations fall, and from this, patriotism and war arises. Survival is key in conflicts between nations, which reminds me of a saying from a famous US General George S. Patton. He said, War is not meant to be you dying for your country -- it is by making the [enemy] die for his. In the world of technology, companies rival against each other as well. Some claim patents on newly invented technology, while others sue each other for stealing ideas of innovation. Heck, when it comes down to consumer preference for different brands, the same scenario applies. We can evidently see this between Microsoft and Apple fanboys, but only in a more subtle and less violent sense. There is never only one type of technology developed and produced by one sole proprietorship. Hard drives are produced by Western Digital, Seagate, and other companies. The same concept applies to different laptops, desktops, memory, and many other such products. Even between small consumer products, we still have competition on who has the best hardware. To determine who is the best, well, welcome to APH Networks. What we have here at APH Networks today is a lightning fast USB 3.0 flash drive -- namely, the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G2 32GB. Back in the day when USB 2.0 flash drives were still kicking around, 8GB of flash drive space was the real deal in quickly transferring files to your friend`s computer. Now, with the Ultimate G2 featuring a USB 3.0 interface and speeds up to 100MB/s and 70MB/s for read and write respectively, how hard can it be to conveniently carry all the data you need in your pocket? Read on to see how `ultimate` the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G2 32GB flash drive is!"

Kingston HyperX Genesis PC3-12800 16GB Kit Review
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 11:13A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re actually checking out another kit in the HyperX Genesis series which is the entry level HyperX series. The particular kit we`re looking at is, like most other kits we`ve looked at lately, a Quad Channel kit designed for the new X79 platform that we`ve been looking at heavily. To check the specifications on the kit, though, and find out exactly what we`re dealing with, we headed over to the Kingston website and the 1600MHz DDR kit comes with a 9-9-9-27-1T setup. These are ok timings; they`re not super tight, and considering the speed they`re probably a little on the looser side of things. It`s ultimately what the Genesis series is all about, though."

Corsair Vengeance 1866MHz CL9 16GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez

Vengeance is the name they have struck upon to wreak havoc among the gaming fraternity and while a full line up of gaming peripherals is about to be unleashed under the vengeance umbrella, Corsair have not forgotten their roots and have blessed a range of memory modules with the same title."

Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB DDR3-1600 Memory @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 2:22A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of Intel`s X79 chipset with its quad-channel memory controller coincides nicely with historic lows in memory prices. Corsair`s recently introduced Vengeance line of peripherals includes products as diverse as headphones, mice, and even memory. Representing a lower-cost alternative to their Dominator memory line, Vengeance memory is offered with both high and low profile heat spreaders and several different speeds and timings. Benchmark Reviews tests the 1600MHz C8 16GB quad-channel low profile Vengeance kit against an assortment of other memory in this test."

Mushkin Redline PC3-17000 16GB Kit Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:31P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being part of the Redline series, we instantly know that this is aimed as a performance memory kit and we all know that nothing means more performance than a sexy red heatsink. This is the first time I`ve seen the Ridgeback heatsink that Mushkin are using here and I find myself thoroughly impressed with the quality of it. What I like the most is probably the fact that it`s screwed together; these days most heatsinks are simply held in place via some thermal tape on the memory ICs. Instead we can see that Mushkin opt for a much more sturdy option with the screws which helps make for a great feeling kit. On the left hand side we can see that the kit is a PC3-17000 one which means it comes in at 2133MHz DDR. Next to that we have the timings which come in at 9-11-10-28-1T @ 1.65v. CL9 2133MHz DDR memory is fairly common and it seems to be that sweet spot for people who want performance RAM without jumping to 2400MHz DDR which carries with it quite a price hike.,,,"

G.SKILL RipjawsZ 1866MHz CL9 16GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 11:13A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen the RipjawZ before and we were impressed so hopefully this quad channel kit will be equally impressive. While it is the first kit we have reviewed fully on the X79 system, we will be pitching it against a very similar Corsair kit (expect a review soon) but before we get to the testing, let`s take a look at the specification of the G.SKILL kit."

Samsung Green 8GB DDR3-1600 VLP
     Tue, Dec 20 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Samsung Green lineup feature very low profile memory modules that are power-frugal, and appear to be ideally suited to a setup like an HTPC. These aren't extreme performance overclocking sticks, but they come with an attractive price tag of only $55 for an 8GB DDR3-1600 kit. They look sleek, the slimline design is rare, but what about performance? Do the Green modules sacrifice too much in speed results? To test this, we'll pit them against a high performance memory kit to see what happens.”
