Intel will lower prices for old and new SSD-drives

Over time, more and more manufacturers of computer equipment are connected to the production of solid-state drives. Conventional consumer SSD are fairly simple to manufacture and chip NAND flash memory and controllers are always available from proven companies. Of all the manufacturers of SSD for the mass market, Intel maybe has not best reputation, still quite high. Using this, the Corporation of Santa Clara sets high prices of their SSDs, not fearing for the sales.



However, as suggested by experts, the pressure from competitors will still force Intel company

to go for price concessions for customers. Reducing of prices on popular drives series SSD

320, SSD 330 and SSD 520 is expected in August this year. Top products will lose most of

all, but also drives of the entry level, in particular 330-series, will be much more accessible to

consumers.


Below are stated all prices and possible devaluation. Old price is indicated in parentheses.

Zalman Intros Three New Graphics Cards with VF1500 Cooler

Zalman, a well-known manufacturer of CPU coolers, PC cases and graphics solutions, introduces three new graphics card models, codenamed GeForce GTX 600 D5 OC VF1500, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 OC VF1500. All three models are equipped with a brand two-slot VF1500 cooler. Its framework consists of four heatpipes which transfer heat from GPU surface to an aluminum heatsink. This heatsink is accompanied by a couple of 92 mm fans, the maximal rotational speed of which achieves 1500 RPM. If compared with a reference cooler, VF1500 reduces GPU operational temperature at 25 degrees (from 81 to 56 degrees), producing 10 dB less noise (26 dB vs 36 dB).



The first model is based on Nvidia GK106 processor, designed under 28 nm technological process. It is characterized by heightened clock frequencies: nominal 1006 MHz against reference 980 MHz, and dynamic 1059 MHz against reference 1033 MHz.


The other two models, GeForce GTX 660 Ti D5 VF1500 and GeForce GTX …

Transcend Releases SSD320 with SATA III Interface

Transcend has introduced a series of new 2.5'' solid-state drives, codenamed SSD320. The new product supports SATA III 6 Gb/sec standards, and is notable for the outstanding data transfer speed, as well as, reliability. SSD320 is based on SandForce SF-2281 controller of the second generation which adds to the overall performance.



Transcend SSD320 series will include drives of various volume capacities, starting from 64 GB and finishing with 256 GB. These models employ MLC NAND flash-memory chips. In addition, those SSDs support error correction technology. Transcend has taken care of its new series and promoted for the unmatched performance and showings. SSD320 ensures quick download of programs and practically instantaneous system response while working with complicated graphic material or multimedia applications. The devices are capable to achieve the maximal reading speed of 560 Mb/sec, and the maximal writing speed of 530 Mb/sec. Random writing speed (4K) equals to 87000 …
