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 …

Asus Readies Top-of-the-Range ROG GTX 780 Ti Poseidon Adapter

Asus is going to enlarge its Republic of Gamers production line with a new graphics adapter – the ROG GTX 780 Ti Poseidon. The model, which is going to become a top-of-the-range product, is differentiated by an offbeat PCB and an exclusive hybrid Direct CU H20 cooler. For sure, this card is ready to offer much more opportunities for demanding gamers. No information about the release date of the pricing has been unveiled so far.

The implemented cooler combines the fundamentals as of air cooling, so of liquid one. Therein, the user is able to choose by himself/herself, which type of mechanism to employ, or whether there is a need to employ both. Irrespective of the choice, each and every component is going to be chilled to promote for the best operating efficiency, especially during overclocking.

The cooler itself consists of a waterblock, a bulky heatsink, three heat pipes, and a pair of low-noise fans with dust protection. The entire framework is covered by a …

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …
