The today’s most popular way of moving data around and transferring it from one computer system to another is definitely USB flash drives. However, now that we have gigabytes of data the USB 2.0 speed may become a bottleneck. Will the transition to faster USB 3.0 interface help flash drives resolve this issue and is it justified at this time?
This year we welcomed the next generation of solid state drives, which major distinguishing feature was SATA 6 Gbps interface support. No wonder, since the old 3 Gbps interface limited the potential of the new SSDs. But which SSD to choose? To answer this question we gathered together and tested popular SSDs with SATA 6 Gbps support from Crucial, Intel and OCZ Technology.
Although the market is already under the great impression from the new SSDs with SATA-600 interface, we shouldn’t forget about the great time-tested products supporting older interface version, which offer excellent performance and therefore are a perfect choice for older systems upgrade.
Today we are going to talk about SSDs with PCI –Express interface. This type of devices is free from a common bottleneck – insufficiently fast SATA interface, so this is where we should be looking for a performance leader.
Today we are going to talk about the hard disk drives with today’s largest capacity of 3 terabytes. We will discuss products from Hitachi, Seagate and Western Digital in the same roundup.
Our today’s roundup will talk about all sorts of drives: individual drives, RAID 0 arrays of drives, drives supporting SATA300, SATA600 and PCI Express interface… They all have one thing in common – they are SSDs.
This roundup will talk about new hard disk drives models that came out in second half of 2010. We will discuss 15 HDDs from Hitachi, Samsung and Western Digital.
This little investigative article will be devoted to the development and changes in the flash memory market. We are going to dwell particularly on the most interesting flash memory application – solid state drives.
We have tested several platforms including hard disk drives of different capacity and different amount of system RAM. So, now we are ready to answer the question: what needs to be upgraded once the CPU and the graphics subsystem perform up to your expectations.
When they launch new drive series, it is especially interesting to find out what innovations they made to justify the appearance of the entire new series. With Seagate Momentus XT we knew right from the start: this drive combines magnetic platters and flash memory in one package. How cool is that? Find out from our new article.
We continue series of articles talking about SSD drives. And today we would like to discuss products from Corsair. We managed to get our hands on a total of nine models from almost all existing product families including a new SSD on SandForce controller.
Our today’s roundup is going to talk about solid state drives from OCZ. The ten products covered in this article include the simplest models, such as Onyx, alongside with the high-performance Vertex 2 SSD on SandForce controller.
This roundup is going to cover several new SSDs: an inexpensive Intel X25-V, updated Kingston V Series drive and a coupe, of products from Western Digital.
It has been a while since we last talked about 2.5-inch hard disk drives. It is time to introduce to you new models with storage capacities exceeding half a terabyte already. Moreover, we are also going to present to you our new testing methodology.
New interfaces appear in computer life relatively rarely, because they cause pretty serious changes in the data transfer infrastructure. That is why it is especially interesting to see what USB 3.0, a long-anticipated replacement to the morally outdated but extremely popular USB 2.0 interface, actually is.
Far not everyone out there needs enormous hard disk drives. Many users out there feel quite happy with smaller HDDs for their systems storing most of their data on external media. And quite a few users do not really have that much data to store anyway. We hope our roundup of 3.5-inch 500 GB HDDs will be helpful for these particular users.
This new roundup will discuss the latest hard disk drive modes with 1 TB and 2 TB storage capacities. We will talk about ten new solutions from Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and Western Digital.
Our today’s roundup will talk about eight SSD solutions from Kingston, OCZ, Super Talent and Wintec, which demonstrated dramatically different performance levels ranging from excellent to really mediocre.
We are going to talk about the new 1 TB HDD models that appeared in the market over the past year. And since one of these solutions is Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS with 4 KB sectors, we will also discuss this type of HDD internal structure, its pros and cons.
At this time SSD performance is determined by the controllers they are built on and firmware versions they use. We are already very well familiar with SSDs on Intel, Indillinx and Samsung controllers. Today time has come to talk about the solutions using JMicron chips.
