Toshiba Introduces OCZ VT180 & TR150 2.5-Inch SSDs

As part of the Computex 2016, Toshiba introduced a couple of OCZ-branded 2.5-inch SATA solid-state drives. The OCZ VT180 & the OCZ TR150 are available in four capacities: 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB & 960 GB. The key differentiation between the two models lies in the choice of memory type; the first SSD employs MLC NAND chips, whereas the second item uses TLC NAND chips. The pair also differs by warranty liabilities, offering 5- and 3-year’s limited packages correspondingly.

Toshiba OCZ VT180 employs SATA III interface, featuring 100.45x69.75x7 mm dimensions. Its sequential Read/Write data transfer speed makes up 550/440 MBs across the line. At the same time, random Read/Write specs vary from 85.000-95.000 IOPS/90.000 IOPS respectively. The drive consumes 3.7 W power in active mode, reducing this level to 0.89 W in standby mode.

This model is estimated for 1.500.000 hours of fool-proof operation. Moreover, it supports such advanced technologies as SMART, TRIM and Idle Time …

Meet Gold-Certified ZM1200-EBT PSU from Zalman

Zalman is well-known for designing affordable PC components. Their budget-oriented nature implies stable but medium efficiency. Things are different with the company’s latest PSU, entitled ZM1200-EBT: it is in stark contrast to the other solutions, due to high wattage and decent performance. The model yields 1200 W power, whereas its efficiency level achieves 92%. Due to this, the unit was conferred 80Plus Gold certificate.

Gaming- & overclocking-targeting Zalman ZM1200-EBT employs a single +12V design. Its output capability is able to reach 100 A. This PSU supports Intel ATX 12V 2.3 and EPS 12V 2.92 standards. The hardware base incorporates Japanese capacitors with 105C temperature grade as well as high-quality DC-DC converters.

To continue, the greenhorn features modular cabling system. Upon the whole, the case accommodates 15 sockets for the connection of targeted wires: 8x 8-pin sockets for CPU & GPU, 2x 18-pin and 10-pin items for the motherboard, 5x 6-pin items …

Gigabyte Outs a Pair of GT 710 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte has just announced the release of two entry-level graphics cards (with 1 GB or 2 GB DDR3) based on Nvidia’s GeForce GT 710 adapter. The company’s elaboration boasts the implementation of Ultra Durable 2 design that combines top-quality hardware base, reliability and high performance. The card comprises an improved PCB with the best-in-class solid-state capacitors, transistors as well as ferrite chokes.

Despite low-profile orientation, Gigabyte GeForce GT 710 employs active cooling system. The latter consists of a small-sized heatsink and a fan. In terms of efficiency, the company decided to preserve etalon showings; hence, the GPU (GK208, Kepler architecture, 192 CUDA cores) operates at 954 MHz frequency. Yet, the models come equipped with an overclocked memory: 900 MHz/1800 MHz (base/dynamic) frequency.

The kit of external interfaces includes three video ports: D-Sub, DVI-D & HDMI. Moreover, the nominal delivery set contains OC Guru II software package. It …
