Patriot Pyro Series SATA 6 Gbps SSDs Coming Soon

Just 2 weeks after Patriot launched the Wildfire SSDs, it declared to launch an impressive high performance solid state drive series known as Patriot Pyro Series.

The key features of this amazing drive is the SandForce SF-2281 Processor and SATA 3 6Gbps connection interface. In addition, it features TRIM command support alongwith DuraClass and DuraWrite for exceptional performance. It also has the RAISE(Redundant Array of Independent Silicon Elements) and a is protected by ECC(Error Checking and Correction) support.

MacBook Air Gets Thunderbolt & More!

It looks like those leaked photos we posted yesterday, did offer a shred of evidence about a MacBook Air upgrade.

Not only will the new MacBook Airs carry the latest Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors but both will support the razor fast Thunderbolt technology, capable of data transfers as fast as 10Gbps.

Samsung Introduces First 30nm DDR3 RAM

Samsung today announced a new 30nm DDR3 RAM module, coming in 2GB and 4GB sticks that are designed to keep power consumption low, about 66% more power efficient than a regular chip, in fact. The chip still hits a 1.6Mbps peak bandwidth.

The most optimal use of these new RAM modules would be laptops and netbooks that require less memory and a low power draw, thus enhancing overall battery life. The memory modules will be available in both single and twin packs depending on your needs.

Micron’s RealSSD P320h- Fastest In The Industry

Micron has recently introduced the world’s fastest enterprise solid state drive, the RealSSD P320h. The drive uses a single PCI Express slot and comes in 350GB and 700GB capacities. The new drives use 34nm single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash memory chips, offering up to 3GB/s of sustained data throughput, which is more than double that of its nearest competitor.

Storage drives are typically measured in terms of input/output operations per second, or termed, IOPS. Micron rates its P320h line at up to 750,000 IOPS for its read speed and up to 341,000 IOPS for its write speed. Micron claims that its IOPs speed is equivalent to what an Exchange server would need to support over 1.5 million Outlook users.

First Phase-Change Memory Cellphone

Samsung has just released the first Phase-Change memory smartphone on the mobile market. The coolest part is that it is an entry level model and it’s called the Samsung Monte GT-E2550. You can currently order the phone on Amazon’s UK website for just 40 pounds. A company called Chipworks that specializes in reverse engineering and semiconductor patents released a careful analysis of the phone.

If you’re unfamiliar with phase-change memory, it’s basically a special storage technology that combines the advantages of RAM with the non volatile aspects of flash memory. Last year, a 512Mbit manufactured version of the chip with a 65nm size was part of a multi-chip package last April.

The Acer Aspire G3100 Predator, Scared Yet?

Acer has just unveiled its new desktop gaming PC. This powerhouse is called the Aspire G3100 Predator and is fueled by an AMD processor. While most modern computers run on Intel processors, AMD is no lightweight contender, especially when it’s the Phenom II hexa-core (six core) processor, as is in this beautiful machine. The machine comes stock with 4GB of RAM but is upgradeable to 8GB of RAM.

There is also a 1TB hard drive. Users can upgrade to 6TB of hard drives (3 x 2TB HDD), but few people will need that much storage.
