Crucial Teases New TLC-Based BX200 Solid-State Drive

Crucial has found a way to consolidate the needs of budget- and efficiency-oriented customer groups. Therefore, it developed a new series of SSDs, based on TLC memory. The BX200 2.5-inch drives (7 mm case depth) come equipped with 16-nm chips by Micron as well as Silicon Motion SM2256 controller. All the models share SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and are compatible with Crucial Storage Executive & Acronis True Image HD utilities.

Crucial BX200 are available in three capacity versions: 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. Their maximal sequential Read/Write speed makes up 540/490 Mb/sec, whereas the maximal random Read/Write index achieves 66.000 & 78.000 IOPS correspondingly. As far as one can see, there is no visible decrease in performance, if compared with MLC memory showings.

The new-comers are estimated for 72 TB of data lifespan; this equals to 40 GB of daily loading over a span of 5 years (MTBF – 1.500.000 hours). In order to provide for the utmost reliability, Crucial adds a …

The overall capacity of modules makes up 2 GB. The GDDR5 demonstrates rather striking performance, considering the card’s middle-end destination: the modules are able to gain 6008 MHz clock frequency.

Power supply is organized according to 5+2-phase scheme, where five phases are allotted to GPU. A pair of 6-pin PCI Express Power connectors is used to provide additional power supply to the card. I/O interface …

PC Chassis Lian Li PC-V750 Review

The inventory of PC cases and enclosures designed by Lian Li is constantly replenishing with new products. Some of them resemble each other in design or framework, but some stand out from the line due to their non-standard elaboration. Chassis Lian Li PC-V750 can be boldly attributed to non-stock solutions, primarily thanks to unusual internal layout. This model is ready to demonstrate multiple attractive peculiarities, but they’ll be reviewed all in good time.


The first point to be mentioned about PC-V750 design is that it comes in three color variations: Silver (PC-V750A), Black (PC-V750B) and Internal Black (PC-V750WX). The latter is notable by the availability of a transparent acrylic side window, absent with other two models. In total, Lian Li PC-V750 is developed in Full-Tower form-factor, featuring 230x440x586 mm dimensions. It might be truly regarded as classic and laconic because of its rectangular shapes, square corners and relatively modest design. The …
