New Enterprise-Class SSDs P420m from Micron

Micron Technology, a well-known designer of RAM modules and solid-state drives, finally launches a new enterprise-class series of SSDs. Codenamed P420m, the new-comers are the true followers of P320h drives, but they are ready to offer more than their predecessors. According to Micron, its new entries feature voluminous capacities and ensure high reliability; however, their price range is far more reasonable than other corporate-class products.



SSDs P420m come in two variations: as standard 2.5-inch drives with PCI Express x4 interface or as HHHL (half-height half-length) expansion cards with PCI Express x8 interface. Both species are based on MLC NAND flash-memory, developed under 25 nm technological process. They support a brand XPERT technology (Extended performance and enhanced reliability technology) that ensures genuine reliability and prolonged lifespan. On conditions of daily employment (i.e. wholesome fourfold rewriting operations), the MTBF index makes up five years. … …

Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.



Chief Peculiarities


Despite the prevalence of SandForce controllers implemented in SSDs, OCZ decided to use quite different platform for its new series. Agility 4 employs Indilinx Everest 2 controllers which, in some way, …

Greeting Two Universal Waterblocks EK-VGA Supremacy Clean CSQ



EK Water Blocks, a well-known Slovenian designer of gamer- and enthusiasts-targeted waterblocks, has recently announced the launch of its two updated modifications of CPU-waterblocks EK-VGA Supremacy Clean CSQ. Entitled Full Copper and Full Nickel, both products are attributed to the universal cooling solutions, due to the incorporation of special fixtures which are known to show compatibility with all contemporary desktop processors. Hence, their mounting might be realized without the engaging of any tools.


The major differentiation between the two models lies in the enclosure: Full Copper features a copper base and a copper waterblock lid, while Full Nickel is distinguished by all nickel coverage. At the same time, both novices have got similar framework of the base with an advanced system of micro-channels. The surface of copper base itself is thoroughly polished to provide for a better adhesion to the CPU cover.


Pricewise, EK-VGA Supremacy Clean CSQ Full Nickel …
