Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.



Chief Peculiarities


Despite the prevalence of SandForce controllers implemented in SSDs, OCZ decided to use quite different platform for its new series. Agility 4 employs Indilinx Everest 2 controllers which, in some way, …

HIS Starts Selling Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition in US Market

Meeting Fresh Dual X Fan Series from Cougar

Cougar is proud to introduce a brand new fan series, entitled Dual X. The series comprises models of 120 mm and 140 mm dimensional type which are equipped with LED ribs. The users are able to select a fan, according to their color taste, since the manufacturer offers models with orange, green, blue or black ribs (the latter come without LED backlit). Dual X line is primarily targeting gamers and enthusiasts who search for new, unusual visual effects for their PC systems.



Cougar Dual X fans’ framework consists of nine solid two-layer ribs which ensure more efficient airflow, more intense air pressure, but at the same time, more silent operation. The ribs, elaborated in a claw-like shape, allow for the adjustment of the airflow and reduction of noise incited by the vorticity. The manufacturer employs in this series a fluid bearing instead of a slide bearing; this promoted for the increase of its working lifespan.
