Kingston replaces nand-flash in V300 with decreasing performance as a result

kingston

The Kingston V300 SSD has  been a product with decent performance for a low price. Lately there have been rumblings and mumblings on tech forums that something is up since some users have had really bad performance. It turns out they were right and that the reason is that Kingston has secretly changed the NAND and selected a much inferior NAND chip while keeping the model number and the price. In earlier versions of the V300, including those that were sent to review sites, the Kingston V300 used a Toshiba 19nm Toggle-Mode 2.0 NAND. This NAND has theoretical speeds up to 200 MB/s.  at some point they now have switched to Micron’s 20nm asynchronous NAND which is only expected to get performance to about 50 MB/s, a big difference.  Anandtech did some tests with AS-SSD: Comparison of Kingston V300 Revisions Revision Original (no longer available) New (currently available) Pre-Istalled Firmware 505A 506A ...

10 rare and/or unreleased graphics cards

Ever heard of the Asus HD3850 Trinity card with three(!) GPU’s or the 3DFX Spectre cards? These are two very rare graphics card that never were released and that Thinkcomputers talk about in their cool and interesting little article: “10 Rare and Unreleased Graphics Cards”.  For those of us that have been around since the first 3D-cards were released back in 1995/96 this is a nice trip down the memory lane although even some newer cards qualify like the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Lightning which MSi only built 12 of. Here’s another example:  EVGA GTX 680 2Win Gemini   EVGA and ASUS were battling for the best dual GeForce GTX 680 card as ASUS had their MARS III card (which we showcased on the previous page) and EVGA had their GTX 680 2Win Gemini. The EVGA GTX 680 2Win Gemini packed two GeForce GTX 680 GPU’s inside but only had 4 ... Read More »
