Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.



Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.


As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …

SilverStone TS433-TB: 4-Bay NAS with Thunderbolt 2 Connectors

SilverStone has replenished its inventory with a 4-bay NAS, entitled SST-TS433-TB. The new-comer is housed in a black aluminum case with an integrated zinc handle (124x166x248 mm dimensions). The storage allows to install high-capacity 3.5-/2.5-inch drives; each bay supports hot swapping functions and features a dedicated lock with LED activity indicator.



The heart of SilverStone SST-TS433-TB is Marvell 88SE9030 controller that is responsible for JBOD and RAID 0 operational modes. In the first case the drives function independently, whereas in RAID 0 mode they operate as a unified whole, evenly distributing information across the disc space.


The connection of NAS to the PC or other computing device is realized via a pair of Thunderbolt 2 ports which are characterized by the maximal bandwidth of 20 Gb/sec. These ports are known to support Daisy Chain function. Cooling of all internal components is entrusted to a single 90-mm fan.


The SST-TS433-TB is ready to …

Zalman Introduces Highly Efficient FX70 Passive Cooler

Zalman, a renowned South Korean designer of various hardware solutions, has recently introduced its latest CPU passive cooler, entitled FX70. The new-entry features 110x140x158 mm dimensions and comes without any fans. However, if there is a need to cool down CPUs with the TDP level higher than 80 W, the customer is free to enhance the facilities by adding two 120 mm fans. The latter are fixed to the heatsink by means of four brackets.



Zalman FX70 is an optimal choice for the following platforms: Intel LGA 2011/1366/115x/775 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. This cooler fits in any mid-tower ATX and larger PC chassis. The cooler’s framework consists of a copper base, pierced by six nickel-plated heatpipes, and of fifteen heatsink plates with an offbeat design, codenamed Twist; they are called to dramatically improve the process of heat management.


Fanless framework is regarded to be an advantage due to three reasons. First of all, pure heatsink provides absolutely no …
