LEXAR JumpDrive M10 & M20 Review
     Thu, May 14 2015 | 8:51P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The JumpDrive M10 and M20 are flash-based USB 3.0 drives which offer up to 128GB/64GB of capacity. While the M20 provides the added bonus of supplying micro USB functionality for use with mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets, both JumpDrives promise to offer great value for money.

Patriot Viper 4 DDR4-3000 16GB Memory
     Tue, May 12 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot is no newcomer to memory and their Viper line has been around as long as I can remember. The Viper 4 series sits as the mid-range offering in their DDR4 memory line with the Viper Extreme sitting at the high-end and the Signature Line being more the entry level. We first got a glimpse of the Viper 4 series back in January at CES and now we have a kit of our own to test out. The kit we are taking a look at today is the PV416G300C6QK kit, which is a 16GB kit with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. The memory kit is of course a quad-channel kit designed for Intel’s X99 chipset and has some pretty nice black and red heatspreaders that not only will keep the memory cool, but will look quite good in your system. Let’s see what this memory kit can do!"

Crucial Ballistix Sport 2400MHz Quad Channel DDR4 16GB Memory Kit Review
     Mon, May 11 2015 | 12:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory, the most vital part of any computer that gets overlooked the most. There’s not a lot to say about RAM apart from its expensive and very confusing. DDR4, the newest iteration of RAM is currently the fastest version of the consumer RAM, with speeds exceeding 3333MHz. Crucial are one of the big players in the RAM game, providing us with solid performance at a more affordable price. Today’s kit is the Ballistix Sport 2400MHz, one of Crucial’s cheaper sets, providing us with minimal heatsinks and the base unit to use a black PCB. Let’s see how this set compares to the likes of Corsair, G-Skill and our base 32GB Crucial DDR4 set.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB SATA III SSD Review

Kingston launches a new HyperX SSD. Slated to replace Kingston's three year old HyperX 3K, the HyperX Savage is the fastest SATA-based SSD from HyperX."

Crucial Ballistix Elite 2666MHz Quad Channel DDR4 Memory Kit Review
     Wed, May 06 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory, no matter how you look at it, you need it. Starting life as super slow DDR modules, it has come a long way from the simple 600MHz speeds, now exceeding 3000MHz in most higher end consumer kits. Module sizes have also come a very long way, back in the day with 128MB, yes Megabyte, to now 4GB modules as the standard with 8GB becoming the norm very soon. The kit we have in today is the Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 2666MHz. This is currently the highest clocked memory modules that Crucial produce, which is lower than what the likes of Corsair and G-Skill offer, but let’s see if this Elite 2666MHz kit has what it takes to compete with the big boys.

Kingston HyperX Savage DDR3-2400-CL11 1.65V Review
     Tue, May 05 2015 | 12:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston HyperX Savage are the latest DDR3 memory modules from Kingston. The worlds largest independet memory maker wants to offer a new level of customization to system builders by adding differently colored heatspreaders to a fully black PCB. Apart from that the HyperX Savage series is targeting the mid range market and therefore you can get either 8 GB or 16 GB memory rated between 1333 MHz to 2400 MHz. In this review we're going to have a detailed look at the DDR3-2400 kit and check what these sticks can do.

Crucial DDR4 2133 MHz 32 GB (4x 8 GB) @ TechPowerUp
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might seems hard to believe, but it has been several months since consumer DDR4 products first appeared on the market. Yet for me, those products have been around for a fair bit longer than they have been in stores. The company to first have samples widely available for testing was none other than Micron. Crucial is Micron's consumer-focused division …

Kingston SSDNow KC310 960GB SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:32P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may not have thought it possible (we did but we didn't expect it to happen for quite some time) but solid state drives (SSDs) are actually gaining ground on regular mechanical hard disk drives so most manufacturers now offer 960GB models at rather affordable prices. The good news however is that there are even 1.6/2/3.2/4TB models currently available (there's even been talk for 6/8TB models) and although their prices are set very high since these are not aimed at regular consumers but rather large enterprises (some 4TB models cost around $30k) this means that eventually such capacities will reach all of us. Today in yet another worldwide first we will be taking a very thorough look at the latest SSDNow KC310 SSD which offers 960GB of space and is the only model in that particular line (at least currently).

Will the new Kingston M.2 SSD shatter some barriers? We benchmarked one to see if it is as fast as its specs suggests.

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB DDR4 Review
     Sun, May 03 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last Ballistix Sport we reviewed impressed us and attained our Silver award so this latest revision has a lot to live up to. The new revision doesn't appear to add very much on paper. In fact we struggled to see any difference. Even the heatspreaders themselves appeared near identical. Looking closer however and we see the heatspreader design has been tweaked slightly with vents uppermost and a digital camouflage sticker across the midriff. Is this enough to improve on the Ballistix Sports last outing though? Read on to find out...

KLEVV NEO DDR3 8GB 2400MHz Memory Kit Review
     Sat, May 02 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think of computer memory, the first companies that come to mind are usually the top manufacturers such as Kingston, Corsair, Crucial, Patriot, G.Skill and several others. When choosing memory, most of us immediately go for these companies as they are well known and have proven themselves capable of manufacturing top quality memory. With already so many great companies manufacturing memory, it can be difficult for a new company to enter this competitive market. Founded in 2014, KLEVV is Essencore’s house brand for memory; Essencore is a division of SK Group, which owns SK Hynix; so in a long way around, KLEVV is part of SK Hynix. Read on to see how our KLEVV memory kit performs!

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB Solid State
     Fri, May 01 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston now has a full line of solid state drives to offer to consumers. We have already taken a look at their HyperX Predator PCI-Express solid state drive on the high end and they have their HyperX Fury, which is more entry level. Filling in the mid-range is the HyperX Savage, which effectively replaces the HyperX 3K solid state drive. The drive is powered by the Phison PS3110-S10 quad core, eight-channel controller that is the same controller that we saw on Corsair’s Neutron XT drive. The drive is also Kingston’s fastest SATA-based solid state drive with sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 530 MB/s respectively. Will this be the solid state drive to get in 2015? Read on as we find out!"
