Greenliant has started sampling its NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive solid state drive (SSD) modules to customers requiring high-performance, high-capacity removable data storage that can withstand extreme environments. The new industrial temperature (-40°C to +85°C) 88 PX Series NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive SSDs use 3-bits-per-cell (TLC) 3D NAND flash memory and are built in the widely used 2242 and 2280 form factors.
88 PX Series NVMe ArmourDrive SSDs provide high performance and low latency for high transactional and business critical applications. NVMe is a highly scalable protocol optimized for efficient data transport over PCIe for storage on NAND flash. Small form factor, power efficient M.2 2242 products support the PCIe Gen3x2 interface and can reach up to 1,550/950 MB/s sequential read/write performance. Offered with hardware encryption and DRAM, M.2 2280 products support the PCIe Gen3x4 interface and can reach up to 3,470/3,000 MB/s sequential read/write performance. These versatile NVMe M.2 ArmourDrive form factors are ideal for space-constrained, embedded and enterprise systems in cloud computing, broadcasting, industrial gaming, factory automation, networking and security.Add a comment
PATRIOT, a global leader in performance memory, SSDs, gaming peripherals, and flash storage solutions, is proud to announce the launch of their P200 series 2.5" internal SATA III 6Gbps solid state drive (SSD) today. The P200 series comes equipped with best-quality memory chips and components that have passed a strict quality control process. This process ensures that the P200 series provides the largest storage capacity, fastest read and write speeds and better reliability. P200 series is available in sizes ranging from 256GB and up to 2TB to meet current marking demands for diverse storage options and features the latest SMI 2258XT series controller to achieve the unparalleled transfer speeds of up to 530MB/s read, and 460MB/s write. This speed boost improves systems performance in many ways from response time under heavy loads to initial startup times and transfer speeds across a network.
P200 has trimmed its thickness down from 9mm to 7mm to ensure it will fit into any system while reserving extra space on the backside of motherboard trays in high-end gaming systems. The thickness between the side panel and the motherboard back tray can be quite small making the 7mm height of P200 ideal in these situations while also offering more space for better air circulation and cable management inside the case. The P200 series is a win-win solution for system builders when planning to build a mini PC or tower-style gaming system.Add a comment

Creative Technology Ltd continues its legacy of revolutionizing audio with the launch of its most advanced PCI-e sound cards ever - the Sound Blaster AE-9 and Sound Blaster AE-7. Built with only the most premium components, and complemented with the latest technologies from Creative, these sound cards are designed to define a new performance standard in this class for the ultimate PC entertainment experience.
Sound Blaster: 30 Years of Revolutionizing Audio
Up till 1989, the only sounds coming out of the PC were mere beeps. The same year, Sound Blaster was born, and PC audio was transformed forever. Since then, over 400 million Sound Blasters have been sold; and the Sound Blaster brand has become synonymous with the term ‘sound card' and high-quality PC audio - first for gaming, and then movies and music. With experience and expertise refined over three decades of audio innovation, Sound Blaster has continued to reinvent itself with the development of digital audio processing technologies. Each new innovation served to redefine what the ultimate audio experience really means, such as when it evolved beyond the PC in the form of external sound cards for platforms like gaming and entertainment consoles.
ADATA Technology, a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces the launch of the ADATA Ultimate SU650 M.2 2280 SATA Solid State Drive (SSD). Equipped with 3D TLC Flash memory, the SSD offers up to 480GB of capacity and sports read/write speeds of up to 550/510MB/s. What’s more, it also supports intelligent SLC caching and features Low-density parity-check (LDPC) error correcting code technology for enhanced performance and data integrity. Sporting an M.2 2280 form factor the SU650 is ideal for both laptop and desktop PCs and does away with the connection of cumbersome cables during installation.
3D NAND is a Great PC Upgrade
Implementing 3D NAND Flash, the SU650 features higher storage capacities (120GB, 240GB, and 480GB), improved efficiency, and better reliability. Whether used as storage or a boot drive, it’s a great upgrade choice for users, especially those making a change from hard disk drives (HDD) to SDD. In addition, 3D NAND Flash consumes less power, up to 80% less than HDDs, which is ideal for users that often work on laptops for extended periods.
