Velox V55 and Slim S55: Two New SSD Series from Silicon Power

Silicon Power, a well-known developer of flash-memory drives, as well as HHD and DRAM, has replenished its inventory with two new SSD series, codenamed Velox V55 and Slim S55. All the models included into the lineups are traditionally designed in 2.5-inch form-factor. Both series will be represented in the market by three models of 60 GB, 120 GB and 240 GB capacity. Their major advantage over rival products lies in acceleration of all operations connected with upload, speed boosting and general performance. Therefore, these SSDs are just perfect for ‘highly-demanding’ users.

Velox V55 solid-state drives are housed in resistant cases made of polished aluminum. All three models feature identical dimensions: 100x70x9 mm and weigh 79 g. The drives are based on SandForce controller and employ SATA III (6 Gb/sec) interface. The maximal sequential speed index claimed by the developer approximates 550 Mb/sec on reading operations and 470 Mb/sec on writing operations. Velox V55 …

Nvidia Makes a Stab at a New GeForce GT 640 Version with GDDR5 Memory

The Internet is filled with rumors about the upcoming release of a new graphics adapter from Nvidia manufacturers. According to the available information, Nvidia is going to update its recently introduced GeForce GT 640 with DDR3 memory type version and to implement advanced tools in their novice product. The implementation of GDDR5 memory will result in the perceptible increase of bandwidth, as well as, of clock speed.

The new graphics card is supposed to exceed its prototype and predecessor in overcklocking showings too. This improvement will be achieved due to the integration of power connector 6-pin PCIe. To contrast both models, the latest version with DDR3 memory employed PCIe expansion slots as power supply tool.

The newer version will be able to operate on 950/5000 MHz, while the older one used to show 797/1782 MHz. GeForce GT 640 (GDDR5) will be based on GK107 processor with 384 CUDA cores and 128-bit memory bus. It is supposed that the memory volume capacity is …

Features of Models AMD Athlon II X4 (FM2)

Like Intel, AMD Company is not protected to the release of a large number of faulty processors, which are eliminated at the stage of laboratory tests. Some have a non-working cache (or part thereof), other — x86-cores, and others — a graphics block, and a fourth — a weak memory controller. According to this, there are releases of less productive CPU, but working with a moderate price tag. About unlocking cores / cache in AMD processors users probably know firsthand.

As the saturation of the defective inventory APU Trinity platform FM2, AMD will decide on the mass production of new models of AMD Athlon II X4. They will be easily distinguished from its predecessors on the number of the form 7xx.

Integrated Graphics Radeon VLIW4, of course, will be disabled. Frequency will be slightly reduced for marketing purposes. Overclocker devotees will primarily be interested in quad-core Athlon II X4 750K of free factor. The operating frequency of the model — 3.4 GHz, cache …
