Adrian's Rojak Pot has a review of Mushkin's new high speed, low latency DDR2 memory. The Mushkin 2G XP2-5300 Extreme Performance is able to run with timings of 3-3-3-10, using 2.3v(which is covered by warranty), and keeps cool thanks to Mushkin's unique heat spreader design. "Of course, all that overclockability is due to the increased voltage that the Mushkin XP2-5300 modules run at. Unlike regular DDR2 modules, these modules are rated to run at a minimum of 2.1V. If you want to seriously overclock it, you need to further increase the voltage to 2.3V or higher."... Read more...

Need super fast ram? How about buying SuperTalent? Though they're not as well known as brands such as Corsair or Mushkin, they have produced some extremely fast(and stable) memory. Getting this speed in a 2GB kit comes with a price though. Are you willing to pay?"AMD will present the AM2 socket this summer, which supports DDR2 PC6400 RAM. Intel based motherboards can already use such RAM and so we have most manufacturers entering a 'memory war', with every RAM manufacturer trying to design and release high speed DDR2 modules while offering good value as well. This 'memory war' seems to get interesting as Super Talent, a less known company among the enthusiast circles, released the (for the time... Read more...

  No question about it, Flash Memory devices have taken on the Consumer Tech industry by storm.  Flash memory is utilized in so many different applications these days, from Cell Phones and PDAs, to MP3 players and Digital Cameras, that it's hard to imagine a world before the Flash memory was invented.  However, thanks to some very smart minds at Toshiba all the way back in 1984 and then Intel in 1988, we all have the ability to store information on the fly in a number of hand-held applications and more. Like any other technology, Flash Memory, specifically NAND Flash which is the type used predominantly in consumer electronics, has been improving exponentially in terms of density... Read more...
Today DriverHeaven reports on Crucial's Gizmo! USB flash drive. The 68mm by 20 mm drive comes in sizes from 128MB to 2GB, which is what DriverHeaven is reporting on. It's not the fastest drive, but still able to transfer a 500mb file in just over 49 seconds."Their flash disk drive product line-up is dubbed 'Gizmo!' and they already are counting their 3rd revision. The 3rd revision is even faster and much smaller than the initial revision, plus features much higher capacities of course, as you can guess. Crucial was nice enough to send us a Gizmo! 2GB drive, the largest currently offered. 2GB worth of storage inside a device that is about the size of your thumb certainly sounds nice, so let us...

The Inquirer has posted a rather interesting article this morning. The first article illustrates the previously unknown fact that NVIDIA's G70, NV40, and NV45 cores can all support and address up to 2GB of memory. Granted, our testing hasn't shown any immediate need to have even 512MB of memory for today's crop of games. However, with titles based on next-generation engines likely showing up early next year we might begin to see insane amounts of memory showing up on the latest and greatest flagship graphics card.It transpires that the chap is right as we have confirmed that NV40, NV45 and G70 chips can address up to 2GB or memory. It seems that Nvidia memory controller can handle more than we... Read more...

With the growing demand for larger storage space in a variety of devices, we've seen some great products float into our news box. Viperlair reviews the Corsair 2GB Secure Digital 133x, which should fill the space needs of most consumers.We added the Flash Voyager simply as a scale to help put the numbers in perspective. Flash media (in it's current state) will never be as fast as a flash drive, so what it boils down to today is how does Corsair fare against other "hi-speed" memory cards? Overall, very well from a performance aspect. The Sandisk Extreme III gave a close fight, but generally trailed the Corsair SD 133x by a small margin.Up until a few months ago, I was still using the 8MB and 16MB... Read more...
AMDZone has Quake 4 Benchmarks with the X850XT PE, 6800GT, 7800GT,& 7800GTX: "We have been Quake players since the first test came out, and it has been too long since Quake 3. While we have played just a few hours of Quake 4 multiplayer it is too early to comment on too much. While the DM17 conversion is not to our liking game play seems ok so far, but we have yet to get into a zone with the rail gun likely because our settings still need to be tweaked. While Quake 4 unlike Quake 3 includes a true single player experience today we focus on multiplayer performance.
