The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.



The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …

Toshiba Introduces OCZ VT180 & TR150 2.5-Inch SSDs

As part of the Computex 2016, Toshiba introduced a couple of OCZ-branded 2.5-inch SATA solid-state drives. The OCZ VT180 & the OCZ TR150 are available in four capacities: 120 GB, 240 GB, 480 GB & 960 GB. The key differentiation between the two models lies in the choice of memory type; the first SSD employs MLC NAND chips, whereas the second item uses TLC NAND chips. The pair also differs by warranty liabilities, offering 5- and 3-year’s limited packages correspondingly.



Toshiba OCZ VT180 employs SATA III interface, featuring 100.45x69.75x7 mm dimensions. Its sequential Read/Write data transfer speed makes up 550/440 MBs across the line. At the same time, random Read/Write specs vary from 85.000-95.000 IOPS/90.000 IOPS respectively. The drive consumes 3.7 W power in active mode, reducing this level to 0.89 W in standby mode.


This model is estimated for 1.500.000 hours of fool-proof operation. Moreover, it supports such advanced technologies as SMART, TRIM and Idle Time …
