We review the MX-Technology MX-ES USB 3.0 SLC flash drive, a USB 3.0 stick equipped with SLC NAND Flash memory allowing it to boast speeds up-to 160MB/s for read and writes ! So this flash drive will get you performance of roughly 160MB/sec peaks and that really is unheard of for a small handy flash storage drive.
Last week we arrived at Sin City not only to cover CES but there was something else going on as well. In Las Vegas, NVIDIA had organized a briefing for a select group of the press. From Europe perhaps ten to fifteen people where invited for this somewhat privileged preview -- the topic, a technical overview of project Fermi. Fermi is of course the family name of the latest generation of GPUs from NVIDIA. The first chipset deriving from Fermi will be called the GF100 GPU which will likely be used on what we think will be called products like GeForce 360 and GeForce 380. Join us in a nice technology preview.
A sub-$150 HD 4000 series video card that will take on NVIDIA, in the shape of the Radeon HD 4830. We expect its price to settle at 119-129 USD. This card will have 640 stream processors, a 256-bit memory interface and GDDR3 memory, and slot in-between the Radeon HD 4850 and HD 4670. What is The HD 4830 targeted against ? Well, considering the NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT and 9800 GT retail for around $130, it seems likely AMD would continue the pressure by also aiming for those products.

The specific model we take a peek at today is the OCZ-520 12U. It's a 520 Watt PSU yet with the reserve to take it even up a notch, this baby can peak at 620 Watt ! Now that's what I call a cup-D sized power supply.
