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.

Greeting Top-Notch Exoc Sniper Videocard from KFA2

KFA2 ventured upon introducing another cutting-edge videocard developed on Nvidia GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 Black Exoc Sniper features 271x124 mm and takes GM204-200 GPU (Maxwell) as the basis. Similar to the etalon model, the new-comer accommodates 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface), running at 7010 MHz frequency and offering 224 Gb/sec bandwidth index.



As distinct from the Nvidia’s elaboration, KFA GeForce GTX 970 Black Exoc Sniper boasts the integration of the factory-overclocked GPU. It operates at 1178/1329 MHz frequency (base/efficient), surpassing etalon 1051/1178 MHz showings. In order to cope with high power consumption and heat output, KFA2 has imbedded high-quality 5+2-phase power subsystem.


To continue, the model is ventilated by a two-slot Silence Extreme cooler. It consists of four nickel-plated copper heatpipes, aluminum heatsink, a rear backplate as well as a couple of 90-mm fans. On low loading, the system disables one of the fans to …
