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 …

New Riing Silent 12 Pro Cooler from Thermaltake Was Spotted

Thermaltake hit the market with an exceptional CPU cooler, entitled Riing Silent 12 Pro. The model is available in two color palettes: blue & red. There the differentiation dropped. Both greenhorns support the majority of modern PC platforms, including Intel Socket LGA2011-3/775/115x/1366/2011 & AMD Socket FM1/FM2/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+.

Thermaltake Riing Silent 12 Pro coolers are able to cool down CPUs with the maximal TDP of 170 W. Their framework consists of 6 nickel-plated copper heatpipes, a voluminous heatsink with aluminum fins as well as a single 120-mm fan. The latter is based on hydraulic bearing, estimated for 40.000 hours of foolproof operation.

The included fan might rotate within the range from 500 to 1400 RPM. Its blades are sure to provide for up to 53 CFM airflow at up to 19 dB noise. The connection of a fan is realized via a 4-pin connector. Furthermore, the user is free to employ an additional LNC adapter which reduces fan rotational range (300-700 RPM) and …

New RAM Modules Ballistix Sport SODIMM from Lexar Media

Lexar Media, a well-known American designer of diverse digital media products, starts selling its new RAM series from Ballistix line. Entitled Sport SODIMM, the series is introduced by four SODIMM-DDR3 modules, intended for the incorporation into gaming laptops: BLS4G3N169ES4, BLS8G3N169ES4, BLS4G3N18AES4, and BLS8G3N18AES4. The quadruple is distinguished by an original design with the implementation of unique heatspreaders. All of them are optimized for Intel Core i5/i7 mobile processors of the fourth generation (Intel Haswell platform) and support all up-dated XMP profiles.

The most beneficial feature applied to Ballistix Sport SODIMM modules is their power-saving nature. They are able to operate at 10% lower power voltage than analogous products; hence, they reduce the laptop’s power consumption index and increase the time of its offline work.

To continue, the first two models, BLS4G3N169ES4 and BLS8G3N169ES4, come in 4 GB and 8 GB capacities correspondingly. They …
