Today we are again going to examine the performance of Samsungís 840 Pro. This time we have a 256GB drive on the bench. Not too long ago we reviewed a 128GB 840 Pro and it turned out to be the fastest MLC based drive weíve ever tested in any capacity. Samsung rates the 256GB 840 Pro as even faster than the 128GB so we are anxious to checkout this performance for ourselves.
The Power Supply is the most important part of your system. Antec sent over their High Current Gamer M 620W to see if it could pass our testing!
This is going to be a quick look at 5.03 Firmware that restores TRIM. At the same time we are going to compare the performance of 5.02 versus 5.03 firmware and performance of a Corsair Force GT 240GB versus a Corsair Force GS 240GB. This is the first time we have been able to compare these 2 drives on equal ground because itís the first time they are both able to run on the same firmware.
Joking aside the new Corsair Dominator Platinum Edition kit of memory is as serious as a heart attack. This is due to this kit being designed for world-class system builds. It's built with hand-screened ICs, undergoes rigorous performance testing, and incorporates state-of-the-art cooling for reliable performance in demanding environments. This not only means this kit of memory is going to be faster than most DDR3 2133 kits on the market, but it is also has overclocking headroom second to none.
Corsair just launched a new series of drives dubbed Neutron. Having already reviewed the Neutron GTX 240GB we know the Neutron Series is a force to be reckoned with and could be poised to grab the performance crown. Today we will be taking a close look at Corsairs other Neutron drive. This drive is simply Neutron with no moniker. We have the Neutron 240GB SSD on the bench today.
Corsair is the first manufacturer to bring an SSD to the consumer market featuring a new Link-A-Media Devices (LAMD) SATA III 6 GB/s SSD controller. Corsairís new line of drives featuring the LAMD Amber LM87800 FPU is called Neutron. The Neutron GTX series has supplanted Corsairís Force GS as their flagship performance consumer drive.
Being the first to publish an article on something new can be somewhat treacherous territory. RWL was as far as we know the first site to release conclusive proof that RAID 0 TRIM is now functioning.
After taking a look at the Arctic MC101 just a month ago, I wasnít sure myself there would be anything in the near future that would have the power to compete with it, in the same market. Much to my surprise only 3 weeks later I received the press release for the Giada i53 Mini PC. While looking over the specs of this Mini PC I was immediately taken back by the potential of this unit, if configured correctly.
The HD 7750 we are examining today is the HIS Radeon HD 7750 iCooler low-profile model. Like other graphics card utilizing the Cape Verde Pro silicon, the HIS HD 7750 LP comes with an 800MHz base clock paired with 8 compute units, 512 streaming processors, 16 ROPS and 32 texture units. In addition, the core includes 1.5 billion transistors and is built on a 28nm node with a die size of just 123mm≤. The 800MHz base clock though is slightly slower than the new default specification of 900MHz.
When we reviewed the N2800 from Thecus just a few months ago, I came away thoroughly impressed at the level of performance and quality that was packed inside such a small NAS. It didnít take me long to get with Thecus and start discussing our next review Ė the N5550.
