Solid State Drive (SSD) prices are falling, which is good news for consumers. As seen in our review of WD Blue SN500, prices for NVMe PCIe SSDs are coming down to the 13 cents/GB range with superior performance than what's available with garden variety SATA SSDs. Even more promising is the fact that 512GB and 1TB SSDs are expected to dip down even further to 10 cents/GB mark before the close of 2019. But for those that need a new SSD right now, we're got a roundup of some incredibly cheap NVMe PCIe SSDs that won't break the bank, and will still give you a significant performance advantage over traditional HDDs, or even SATA SSDs. The following NVMe PCIe SSDs available from Amazon... Read more...
If you want a quick and budget-friendly route to speeding up a computer that features an “old hat” hard drive, a solid-state drive is pretty much a no-brainer upgrade.

Today, Mushkin is teaming up with online tech retailer Newegg to deliver an “eco-friendly” SSD product family for those looking to breathe new life into older (or budget-spec’d) computers.

Coming just a tad too late to be an April Fool's prank is an announcement by Mushkin saying that it will no longer sell individual parts direct to the customer on its website. It's a bit of bummer to see Mushkin close its online shop, especially when the occasional coupon/promotional code would roll into view and trump any third-party sellers, but demand has been such that Mushkin has decided its customers will be better served by concentrating its efforts on the middlemen. "Beginning April 3rd, 2012, Mushkin will no longer sell individual parts direct online," Mushkin announced on its website as well as on its Facebook page. "We value the personal interaction with customers which online sales... Read more...
Shares of Rambus are down more than 50 percent today after a jury trial on Wednesday found Micron and Hynix Semiconductor not guilty of price fixing.

If you find yourself digging through the latest happenings in the memory sector, you've surely heard of Mushkin.

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...
