Intel Sandy Bridge CPU In-Depth Look At Overclocking, Memory Timings and More
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 3:19P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First introduced at the CES, Intel’s new Sandy Bridge CPU architecture is here to flood the mainstream market with over 25 CPUs. Don't panic, most are foreseen for the mobile market and only 9 new models will be introduced for the desktop segment. Coinciding with this new release is also a new socket design. 1155 pins will be the new standard for Intel’s mainstream lineup. Yes you guessed it, Sandy bridge is here to replace socket 1156. Slowly but steadily Clarkdale and Lynnfield will become End Of Life and will be phased out. At the Sandy Bridge Tech conference the representatives of Intel said that the current S1366 i7 lineup (Bloomfield and Gulftown) will remain their high end platform. Time to explore Sandy Bridge...

     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot has recently launched the Viper Xtreme DDR3 Extreme Performance low-latency (9-10-9-27) memory running at speeds up to 2000MHz and 1.65V. The Patriot Viper Xtreme Series is the company's high performance memory, designed for overclocking and those who need fast memory.

Corsair Vengeance 12GB DDR3-1600
     Tue, Feb 01 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we're looking at a 12GB kit running at 1600MHz in tri-channel mode. The really interesting thing is this 12GB kit only costs $200, one of the least expensive on the market. Large capacity, attractive styling, and a great price......are these Corsair Vengeance modules the next big thing? Let's find out.”

Corsair Vengeance 1600 MHz CL9 12 GB DDR3
     Mon, Jan 31 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has introduced their new line of memory called Vengeance. Available in high capacity kits up to 16 GB we got a hold of the triple-channel one with 4x 3 GB modules. That said we push the trio to the max and see if it comes back with a vengeance or fizzles into thin air quietly.

Kingston's HyperX Max USB 3.0 SSD
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB 3.0 is the most sorely needed peripheral interface upgrade in recent memory. Cheap notebook drives can make good use of the extra bandwidth, and solid-state drives are even faster. Today, we're taking a quick look at Kingston's HyperX Max USB 3.0 SSD.

PNY XLR8 6GB DDR3-1600
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“For the user looking to harness the power of triple channel memory but without an extreme price tag, then the PNY XLR8 6GB DDR3-1600 CL8 memory kit looks very promising. Priced at what looks to be the least expensive performance modules at this speed and latency, these XLR8 (read "accelerate") sticks appear to offer some excellent value. But, only if they have the dash for the cash; we know sometimes things are cheap for a reason. So, are these PNY modules a fantastic deal, or just plain cheap? Let's find out.”

Corsair Dominator 12GB DDR3 1600 CL9 Memory Review
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Corsair Dominator 12GB DDR3 1600 CL9 Memory-Kit arrived Technic3D. Technic3D will see as good they are with Overclocking against the G.Skill Trident, Mushkin Ridgeback and Corsair GT Memory Kits on Windows 7 64 Bit and the Gigabyte X58 Extreme Mainboard. You can see 1.900MHz (1,65V) with 9-10-9-24 (2T) and more in the following Review."

Seagate Momentus XT 500GB 2.5" Hybrid Hard Drive
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With SSDs making some minor inroads into the market hard drives used to have sole proprietorship over, manufacturers like Seagate needed something new to spice things up. Enter a new generation of hybrid drives which combine the capacity of a traditional hard drive with the high speed NAND of an SSD. The Momentus XT is one of the first which is available in a small form factor for notebooks, set top boxes and HTPCs.

Kingston HyperX - KHX2133C9AD3X2K2/4GX
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 2:23P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston launched a new line of memory when Sandy Bridge was released. The new HyperX® Genesis Special Edition Grey sticks are certified to run with Intel Sandy Bridge at the speed specified above. We received the HyperX KHX2133C9AD3X2K2/4GX, a 2x2GB kit from the company that we are going to put into work.

Putting Memory Latency into Perspective
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 2:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As memory standards have changed over the years one thing has remained constant: the confusion that arises when trying to compare different memory speeds and timings. It's been drilled into our heads again and again that faster speed is good, but so are lower timings, and unfortunately those two ends seem to move in opposite directions. The higher the memory goes in frequency, the greater number of cycles spent waiting before reading from or writing to it. Invariably the question always arises, which is better for my system?"

Patriot Viper Extreme 12GB (3x4GB) DDR3 2000Mhz Review
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we will be looking at one of the latest RAM offerings, the Viper Extreme series from Patriot’s EP (Extreme Performance) line. This 12GB (3x4Gb) triple channel kit “is the ultimate performance memory solution for the Intel X58 platform” according to Patriot. Let’s see if it lives up to the hype."

F3-16000CL9D-8GBRM 2x4GB Memory Kit
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As CPU memory controllers continue to become the bottleneck when it comes to overclocking memory, having modules that can keep up has become increasingly important. G.Skill's Ripjaws modules are currently known as some of the best modules on the market in terms of price and overall performance while offering a good amount of overhead for overclockers. With their new 8GB kit, high capacity, extended performance for current platforms is within reach for everyone.

Corsair Force Series F90 Solid State Drive RAID Report
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It's been quite some time since we've published a RAID Report, but don't think we forgot about the users looking to get the most out of their systems. SandForce has produced a really good SSD controller that is very resistant to "SSD Fragmentation". The core product of the consumer SandForce SF-1200 is the enterprise SF-1500 controller. Enterprise customers almost always design and use RAID for redundancy in their servers, but we have still yet to receive a hardware RAID solution that is able to pass along the TRIM command. Today we are going to take a pair of consumer class Corsair Force 90GB SSDs with a Newegg price of 189.99 each and pair them in RAID 0 on an enthusiast motherboard. If everything goes as planned, the two drives will deliver 180GB of capacity and speeds unmatched by a single SSD on the market."

Kingston SSDNow V 100 256GB and SSDNow V+ 100 256GB
     Sat, Jan 22 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the performance difference between the Kingston SSDNow V+ 100 and SSDNow V 100 we cannot justify the 19% rise in cost per gigabyte. Looking back at our file copy test the SSDNow V+ 100 was as at best 19% faster than the SSDNow V 100, while we found the margin was more realistically around 5%. However when measuring real-world performance there was virtually no difference in performance between these two drives.
