Aerocool Intros Dead Silence System Fans

Aerocool Advanced Technologies is going to launch a new lineup of 140/120 mm system fans, entitled Dead Silence. As seen from the title, the products are distinguished by absolutely noiseless operation. However, this is not the only attraction. The lineup is introduced by bicolor models with black frames and white/blue/red/black mounting components. Four onboard LED backlight add to the fans’ aesthetic effect.

All the fans are designed on a hydrodynamic bearing that is able to run approximately 100.000 hours on end. All of them are connected to the motherboard by means of a 3-pin connector. The blades are made of two different materials (rubber and plastic), whereas their reverse side features a dedicated Fish-eye design. It provides for the minimization of turbulence. Moreover, four rubber clamps on the frame’s edges terminate the vibration and noise.

To proceed with the peculiarities, Aerocool Dead Silence fans of 120 mm dimensional type rotate at the maximal 1200 …

Meeting Ballistix Elite DDR4 Memory from Micron Technology

As part of Crucial brand, Micron Technology comes out with a new generation of RAM – the Ballistix Elite DDR4. It is developed in a pure black PCB with a powerful heatspreader and an integrated thermal sensor. Initially, the company releases planks of 4 GB and 8 GB, although in retail sale the products will be available in 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB kits. Pricing is unknown so far.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory operates at 2666 MHz frequency and boasts 21 Gb/sec throughput index. Its power-efficient facilities are 40% better than those inherent in DDR3 models with analogous clock frequency. This makes gaming process a delight due to intense responsiveness, optimized latencies, and increased frame rates.

The modules support XMP 2.0 profiles as well as Ballistix Memory Overview Display utilities; the latter track the performance of each module, analyzing temperature, voltage and frequency showings in real time. Furthermore, Micron Technology makes its DDR4 compatible …

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.

Both Plextor M.2 6G solid-state drives come with PCI Express 2.0 interface. They are based on Marvell 88SS9188 controller and 19 nm MLC NAND flash-memory with Toggle interface (by Toshiba). The models support TRIM and NCQ technologies as well as DEVSLP power-efficient mode that reduces power consumption to 0.2 mW.

As far as speed characteristics are concerned, M.2 6G accelerate up to 520 Mb/sec on sequential Read operations; sequential Write index depends on the model: 160 Mb/sec for 64 GB model and 210 Mb/sec for 128 GB one. At the same time, random Read/Write operational index (4K blocks) makes up …
