Mushkin atom 64 GB Flash Drive Review

WEB: http://www.poweredbymushkin.com/Home/ MSRP: US$ 21.99 AUTHOR: Jonathan Horne

Mushkin goes back quite a long way, with some of their first consumer products being DDR1 RAM aimed at enthusiasts. I haven’t used a Mushkin product since my old Mushkin Blackline Level II 2x 256 MB DDR433 kit, so when I was given the opportunity to review one of their flash drives it was quite a throwback. That’s not to say that they’ve been out of the game; I just haven’t had a Mushkin product go through my hands. Today we’re having a look at the Muskin atom USB 3.0 64 GB flash drive, one of the smallest (physically) on the market.

ROCCAT Kone Pure and Raivo Mouse Mat

roccat-raivo

It’s not often that I am impressed by gaming peripherals lately, especially since there are so many options with just about every vendor offering their own brand of gaming mice and mouse mats. ROCCAT though is a vendor has always been about gaming peripherals. The studio didn’t jump on the bandwagon to cushion diminishing revenues coming from other markets. They have always been about gaming and the results speak for themselves. Not everyone will be a fan of their products but their build quality and attention to detail is impeccable. From the packaging to the actual product… Read the full story here

ASUS ROG POSEIDON

ASUS-POSEIDON-GTX780-P-3GD5_card-03

With every generation of graphics processors (at least in recent history), the ROG team had made a special graphics card using one or two of these GPUs. This is over and above their DCII versions which are competent cards in their own right. For those seeking something a little extra though, perhaps even a little special, ROG has produced various incarnations of the Mars, Matrix and Ares graphics cards. The Poseidon that we have here is an extension of this family of cards featuring the latest… Read the full story here

MSI GTX 780Ti Gaming

MSI GTX 780Ti Gaming

We are all well and truly familiar with the GTX 780Ti by now. It’s been with us for the better part of four month and is currently the fastest GPU money can buy, at least for gaming and for the most part overclocking as well. This however is, as the name of the card suggests, a SKU from MSI strictly made for the gamers. How this is in any way gaming orientated as opposed to the regular card is puzzling. It features the wonderful Twin Fror IV cooler and MSI’s Miltary Class-III components along with… Read the full story here

GIGABYTE GV-R929XOC-4GD

GIGABYTE GV-R929XOC-4GD

In testing this offering from GIGABYTE we found something very peculiar. As you would expect, the GIGABYTE card we have here is faster than the reference AMD R9 290X. That’s not a surprise at all, given that it is clocked higher (even though it’s a marginal overclock). However when both cards were clocked to the same frequency, the reference card….

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 32GB 2,666MHz C12 Kit

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro

There are many weird and wonderful things that can be said about INTEL’s Haswell CPUs, this is especially true for competitive overclockers. Despite the revolutionary manufacturing process and the FIVR, the clock speeds are by and large lower than those on Ivy-Bridge CPUs and of course even lower than those of CPUs based on Sandy- Bridge processors… Read the full story here

WD Black 4TB FZEX

It’s been a while since I tested a magnetic hard drive. In fact it’s been years since I even gave a second thought to such storage. In my mind and I suppose for many others as well, these drives have been relegated to pure mass
storage where their performance is of little to no concern. The SSDs is where the performance is and there’s no turning back of course. Recently though I found myself wanting to consolidate all of my media onto a single drive as it was… Read the full story here
