OCZ has launched the successor to the popular Vector SSD with the Vector 150. The Vector 150 improves upon IO performance and drive durability with 50GB of host write per day for 5 year.

Gigabyte_Stealth_Force_K7

Gamers often prefer clicky feeling of the mechanical keyboard. But no matter how good a mechanical keyboard is, it is still rather expensive and the clicky noise can be somewhat bothersome for those who are used to the membrane type keyboard.

If you work primarily with laptops (as many do), and just occasionally play games on your PC, then you may find the noise on the mechanical keyboard too loud for you. If this is you, then you may want to check out the the Gigabyte Stealth Force K7 keyboard that we gt here today.  Externally, the Stealth Force K7 Force is going with the tough feeling that may appeal to some gamers.

Quick Look at Antec USB charging hub (UA4-25) and PowerUp Slim 2200 (APS-2200)

antec_power

Introduction AMP branding is expanding into the mobile market with various peripherals such as speaker, headphone and power adapter for mobile devices.

AMD Introduces heterogeneous Queuing (hQ)

Heterogeneous Queuing Presentation_Page_10

AMD today brings the latest implementation of the heterogeneous computing with the introduction of the heterogeneous queuing (hQ). As you may recall, AMD founded the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation with other chipmakers and industry giants such as ARM, Qualcomm, and Samsung to promote a great utilization of various computing processors such as CPU, GPU, DSP and others . The goal of the HSA is to bring ISA agnostic to the chip and brings all of the computing resources to equal footing.

Arctic S113BT Bluetooth Wireless Speaker with NFC

Arctic_S113BT

Remember old times, when you had to plug a cable in the 3.5” mm headphone jack of your mobile device to the speaker in order to amplify the volume so that everyone at the party could enjoy music? Many IOS devices also utilize the 30-pin or lightning connector to pass the audio to the speaker. Well, it’s time to cut the wire since Bluetooth wireless speakers are popping out everywhere this year that let you stream your music from your mobile devices without the need of a wire. While Bluetooth or wireless speakers are not new technologies, this year, there seemed to be an explosion of wireless speakers popping out everywhere.    Arctic’s latest S113BT is a budget portable wireless Bluetooth speaker with NFC chip that is retailed at $69.90. The speaker is shipped in a relatively small box that resembled a lot like what you get with your mobile phone. ... Read More »

OCZ Vertex 450 2x128GB RAID

OCZ_Vertex_450

Looking at the model number of the OCZ Vertex 450 and you would be thinking that the product falls in the same family as the Vertex 4. However, the only thing that the Vertex 450 shares with the Vertex 4 is only the branding of Vertex. Other than that, the Vertex 450 actually is more closely related to the performance Vector series SSD that OCZ has launched late last year. The Vertex 450 uses the same Barefoot III (part number IDX500M10-BC) controller as the Vector but instead of using 25nm NAND MLC chip as the Vector, the Vertex 450 is paired with the die-shrunk 20nm MLC NAND. The shift to 20nm fabrication process is inevitable in order to save costs and to increase the NAND capacity so that manufacturers could pack more bits per die. This not only drives the price of the SSD down but also helps to increase the ... Read More »
