Adata Offers Premier Pro SP920 Drive for Multimedia Data

Adata Technology enters into the market with a new series of SSDs, codenamed Premier Pro SP920. Initially, the customers will be able to acquire only two models of 128 GB and 256 GB capacity, though the manufacturer promises to enlarge the line later on with more spacious drives of 512 GB and 1 TB capacity. All the models feature a conventional 2.5-inch form-factor and are based on Marvell controller, accompanied by multi-level MLC NAND flash-memory.

Solid-state drives Adata Premier Pro SP920 employ SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface. Their design is peculiar by 7 mm depth, thus it will be possible to incorporate them into ultra-slim devices. The availability of a dedicated adapter, as well as a special mounting set, facilitates their installation into the 3.5-inch bays.

In keeping with the developers, these drives are primarily intended to work for the needs of multimedia data, as far as they ensure marvelous performance during Read/Write operations. Therefore, SP920 (depending …

Greeting Hi-Fi H81MDC Motherboard from Biostar

Biostar is proud to release a multifunctional micro-ATX motherboard that belongs to the new-gen Puro Hi-Fi lineup. Codenamed Hi-Fi H81MDC, it features 244x230 mm dimensions and is characterized by black-and-red PCB design. The board is based on Intel H81 Express chipset, supporting LGA1150-compatible CPUs of Haswell generation (Pentium, Core i3/i5/i7 series) with the maximal TDP of 95W.

Biostar Hi-Fi H81MDC is primarily peculiar by the realization of a high-end audio subsystem. It is based on a 7.1-channel Realtek ALC892 controller. This subsystem embraces high-quality components, as well as an additional shielding, called Hi-Fi Ground) of the multi-layer PCB. Support of Hi-Fi Power technology provides for an independent power supply to each analog and digital audio channel. The plate is protected against electrostatic discharge on connection of headphones/a microphone.

To proceed with audio subsystem, it comes with an onboard amplifier for headphones; it ensures the …

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, …
