Toshiba 16GB TransMemory U201 Mini USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 11:21A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TransMemory U201 Mini USB 2.0 USB Flash Drives were not made to break any records, but are built in a miniature size in order to be fit easily on our keychain for transferring small files. While the product is able to offer good read speeds for an USB 2.0 drive, the write speeds are a bit lacking so it will take quite some time to load larger files onto it.

Kingston HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1

Posted by: STAFF
"Over the past few years USB speeds have really increased! We were stuck on USB 2.0 for quite a long time maxing out at 480 mbps. Not that long ago we were introduced to USB 3.0 which was a significant upgrade up to 5 gbps, which is 10 times the speed of USB 2.0. Just this year we have another upgrade to USB 3.1 which doubles the speed up to 10 gbps. With USB 3.1 with have a whole slew of new devices and of course some of those include flash drives. These make transferring and carry data with you extremely easy. Today we are taking a look at Kingston’s HyperX Savage 128GB USB 3.1 flash drive. This drive features read and write speeds of 350MB/s and 250MB/s respectively, a pretty cool design and a 5-year warranty."

PNY AnarchyX 2800MHz DDR4 16GB (4x4GB) Quad Channel Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Dec 25 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prior to the release of Intel’s Z170 platform, DDR4 memory prices remained extremely high compared to DDR3 equivalents and required the use of other expensive components designed primarily for professionals. Thankfully, DDR4 prices have plummeted and usually cost the same as DDR3 capacities or slightly less in some cases. So why consider DDR4? Firstly, the latest standard in computer memory operates using lower voltages and capable of reaching frequencies in excess of 3200MHz. Granted, this doesn’t make a difference in most gaming tasks, but it’s useful for rendering, video editing and other workloads. Additionally, the price variation between 2400MHz and 3000MHz is still relatively small and well worth your consideration.

G.SKILL Trident Z 4000MHz DDR4 Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Dec 23 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G.Skill has one of the largest and most respected DDR4 memory kit lineups on the market and they are always trying to develop and release faster memory kits for enthusiasts. The G.Skill Trident Z series of memory was designed specifically to offer extreme performance applications and feature the best Samsung DDR4 ICs that G.Skill could purchase. G.Skill than sorted/binned all the Samsung IC's that they purchased and came up with 11 different speed grades ranging from 2800 MHz to 4266 MHz with regards to 8GB (2 x 4GB) dual-channel DDR4 memory kits that we are going to be focusing on today. With that many speed grades available it basically forces the enthusiast to purchase a memory kit by the price of the kit as most of the sorting fun was done at the factory. The kit that we will be reviewing today is the G.Skill Trident Z 4000MHz 8GB (2x4GB) memory kit that is sold under part number F4-4000C19D-8GTZ for $209.99 shipped.

G.Skill TridentZ 3200MHz DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) Dual Channel Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Dec 22 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
G.Skill is one of the most respected memory vendors in the technology industry and synonymous for selecting premium ICs to set world records. For example, back in August, Chi-Kui Lam overclocked G.Skill’s Ripjaws 4 memory made from Samsung ICs to attain an astonishing world record of 4795.8MHz. Additionally, the data from HWBOT in August shows 7 Skylake world records were set on Ripjaws 4 memory kits. This exemplifies the overclocking potential of G.Skill modules and strict binning process. In most scenarios, consumers simply enable Intel’s Extreme Memory Profile and avoid manual overclocks to maximize compatibility. Additionally, in gaming tasks, the difference between 2400MHz and higher frequencies is minimal. Nevertheless, if the price difference between 2400MHz and 3000MHz+ is small, there’s no reason not to pay the extra for higher bandwidth modules out of the box.

VisionTek 256GB and 512GB USB3 thumbdrives
     Tue, Dec 22 2015 | 2:14P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
VisionTek Products LLC, (VisionTek®) http://www.visiontek.com, a leading manufacturer of award-winning, high-performance upgrades and accessories for PCs and Macs, today announced an expansion to the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD line of thumb drive-sized Solid State Drives.

The Pocket SSD line is ideal for creative professionals, IT power users, and performance enthusiasts seeking ultra-fast media and large file transfers. Available in full density storage capacities of 128 gigabyte (GB) with an SRP of $89.99, 256 GB with an SRP of $149.99, and 512 GB with an SRP of $279.99, the 3.0 Pocket Drive will launch in North America later this month.

Sleek, Portable Storage for All Types of Data and Devices

The next generation of VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSDs combines a sleek portable design and ultra-fast read/write demands, all without compromising large capacity requirements. The VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD can be plugged into any computer’s USB 3.0 port to save or share work files, movies, images, music libraries, and more.

www.pcstats.com

The speed, reliability, and storage capacity of the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD rivals internal SSDs, exceeds standard USB flash drive speeds, and demolishes the read/write speeds of external hard disk drives. They can be used with nearly any Windows®, Mac® OS X®, and Linux® based system with a USB 3.0/2.0 interface.

Fastest, Smallest, and Most Durable Portable SSD

The VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD is similar in size to a standard USB thumb drive, but that’s where all similarities end. The aircraft-grade aluminum housing contains a fully functional Solid State Drive with a multi-chip design utilizing high endurance MLC NAND that delivers consistent 450MB/s reads and 155MB/s writes, which makes it possible for file transfers to and from the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD to be done 20 times faster than standard USB 2.0 flash drives or external hard disk drives.*

“Launching the VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD in full-capacity versions was a high priority for us,” said Mark Bilson, Executive Vice President of VisionTek. “We opted to expand the line fully, offering 128GB and 256GB, and adding a 512GB version as well, allowing for customers who have larger storage capacity needs to take full advantage of this fantastic, portable form factor.”

Designed in USA and Built for Reliability and Endurance

All three models of the full-capacity VisionTek USB 3.0 Pocket SSD are designed in the US and built with the same award-winning technology as VisionTek’s other internal SSDs. The technology’s design architecture employs a USB to SATA bridge, connected to an SSD controller for the highest speed, durability, and reliability. Data refresh technology ensures data integrity and the redundant storage elements produce some of the longest life expectations in its class.

VisionTek’s USB 3.0 Pocket SSDs are launching immediately at Amazon.com, with expanded availability later in the month at leading resellers and distributors across North America. For more information on the new line of portable SSDs from VisionTek, as well as their existing line of 2.5" and PCIe SSDs and accessories, visit www.visiontek.com/solid-state-drives.html.

Kingston USB 3.1 HyperX Savage 128GB
     Thu, Nov 19 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After running the HyperX Savage USB 3.1 drive through the test suite, it's hard not to like this drive. The quote on Kingston's web site is a performance rating of up to 350MB/s read and 250MB/s write. In a couple of tests, it surely got there covering both ends of the rating. However, in some tests it struggled to reach the rated 250MB/s write rating. Overall though, this has to be the highest performing flash drive I have tested to date. In the file transfer test, the Savage delivered a 28% performance boost over the comparison drive. The higher throughput in the sequential testing allows for quicker transfer times that save time when you are on the go. With ever increasing file sizes, the need for greater NAND capacity in a smaller package creates some performance problems that the HyperX Savage addresses. The 128GB capacity of this drive would allow me to transfer the entire contents of my work laptop to a single flash drive. Pretty amazing when you think about it."

"For the longest time Mushkin was a company that was leading the game when it came to computer memory. When they released a new kit it was what everyone was talking about and most people I knew had Mushkin memory. I am not sure what happened but Mushkin was not talked about as much and many people I knew moved on to other brands for their computer memory. Well Mushkin wants you to think about them again when it comes to computer memory and today we have their latest DDR4 Blackline memory on the review block today! Today we are taking a look at the 997207T kit which is an 8GB (2x4GB) kit that runs at 2800 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.2V. Did I mention this kit has a pretty nifty heatspreader as well? Let’s take a look!"

Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 16GB
     Mon, Nov 16 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the release of its Skylake Core processors, Intel introduced a new 1151 socket and Z170 chipset design. Rather than previous generation mainstream desktop configurations using DDR3, Intel opted to adopt the latest DDR4 also used in their high-end/enthusiast X99 platform. The DDR4 specification starts at 2133 and currently runs up to 3400 and will certainly continue higher as frequencies improve. For our Skylake build, Kingston sent over a 2x8GB kit of their latest HyperX Fury modules in DDR4-2666 speed. Join us as we take a closer look at the Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 memory.”

Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-3400 8GB Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Nov 12 2015 | 3:06P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this year we took a look at our first Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit from Patriot. That kit was a quad-channel kit designed for the X99 platform. Now that Intel’s Z170 chipset is here we have dual-channel DDR4 which we’ve seen to be more stable at higher frequencies. Patriot has sent us one of their latest Viper 4 DDR4 kits which is an 8GB dual-channel kit that runs at 3400 MHz! With official timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V the PV48G340C6K kit is set to perform quite well on Z170 systems. On top of the fast speeds the memory kit features a custom-designed heatspreader that is black and red that will match many popular motherboards out there. Let’s get this memory installed and see what it can do!"
