Mushkin Showcases New Reactor Solid-State Drives

Mushkin Enhanced is about to launch a new series of top-tier SSDs within the framework of Reactor series. The series, represented by three models of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacity, is targeting up-to-date gaming and high-performance systems. The greenhorns are developed in 2.5-inch form-factor with 7 mm thickness only and SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface.

Mushkin Reactor drives take Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller in cooperation with MLC NAND flash-memory as the basis. Their utmost sequential data transfer speed equals to 560 Mb/sec and 460 Mb/sec on Read/Write operations respectively, while random data transfer speed achieves 74.000 IOPS and 76.000 IOPS correspondingly.

The triple is thought to operate 1.5 million hours without failures in rather tough conditions (in working environments with up to 70 degrees temperature). All models support TRIM instructions, DevSleep mode that prolongs standalone operation of a mobile device on battery power supply, and the newest …

Storage subsystem offers space for HDDs of up to 3 TB capacity. The connection of other storage solutions is realized via a pair of SATA 6 Gb/sec ports. Expansion facilities are due to one PCIe 3.0 x16 and one mini-PCIe slots.

The CPU is cooled down by an …

ViewSonic Outs XG03 Gaming Monitors

ViewSonic has enlarged its lineup of gaming products with another series of monitors – the XG03. The lineup currently consists of two models: XG2703 & XG2703-GS. The key differentiation between them lies in the support for AMD FreeSync (the first model) and Nvidia G-Sync (the second model). Consequently, the GX2703 employs red accents in design, whereas the XG2703-GS uses green detailing.

ViewSonic XG03 is based on 27-inch SuperClear IPS panel, featuring 2560x1440 pixels & 165 Hz refresh rate. The display boasts 16:9 aspect ratio, 178/178 degrees viewing angles, 1000:1 static contrast, 120M:1 dynamic contrast, 300 cd/m2 maximal brightness as well as 4 ms response time.

The abovementioned parameters refer to the XG2703-GS model that is already on sale (estimated price — $699.99). The other model will be released in the nearest future.

The models are thought to be equipped with a pair of 2-watt speakers, 100x100 mm VESA bracket, a couple of USB 3.0 ports, the same …
