Re: Kingston UV500 SATA SSD Review

Totally impressed at the price and how well it works. Self-encrypting drive at this price point is a huge plus for businesses that need this sort of thing. I don't think I would ever use it for home use though. Then again, I don't have anything people would want to steal LOL It really is good for t...

Re: ADATA XPG Spectrix D40 16GB RGB DDR4 Memory Review

no one really knows... it's likely a combination of supply/demand, production issues or lack of production and then good old price fixing.

ADATA XPG Spectrix D40 16GB RGB DDR4 Memory Review

Now there are many things to take into consideration, such as the heatsink, speed, timings, overclockability and design. The recent trend is to put RGB LEDs on everything possible, a...

Re: ADATA XPG SX8200 M.2 SSD Review

Active State Power Management (ASPM) is a little strange as no one talks much about it. No drive company has ever briefed the press on it and only a handful of storage sites even test it on/off. Every controller has different power states that can be used by ASPM and ASPT (Autonomous Power State Tra...

This product finally died.

Re: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 8-Core 65W Processor Review

It's just the architecture differences between Intel and AMD. IPC has been better on Intel for years and continues to be better despite AMD getting over 40% IPC improvements with Zen. That is why before Zen no enthusiast was touching AMD.

Both the models we looked at last month support AMD's XFR 2 technology though and we weren't able to look at the non-XFR (eXtended Frequency Rang...

Re: SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable SSD Review

Yeah, i'm not sure why an SSD can't go as low as a Flash memory card. It wouldn' t be the NAND Flash, but likely maybe the controller or DRAM cache chip?

Anydvd does have a feature to eliminate the Cinavia watermark when used with CloneBD! correct, but the the audio is downgraded to AC3, not the original audio signal.
