Just over two years ago there were only five companies involved in Solid State Drive technology, and as of January 2010 there are nearly 140 names in the business. In this article Benchmark Reviews inspects the Toshiba T6UG1XBG Solid State Drive controller, which is used in the third-generation Kingston SSDNow V+ SNV325. The Toshiba T6UG1XBG SSD controller is a 43nm part, with a maximum rated read speed of 230MBps and write-to performance peaking at 180MBps.

Want to make the upgrade to a solid-state drive, but prefer to avoid the high cost of adoption? Kingston helps ease that pain with its SSDNow V Series 40GB, a modest drive that features Intel's NAND and impressive G2 firmware, which helps it deliver stellar performance when compared to an HDD, for an easy-to-stomach price.

The Ultra Products X4 500W PSU is a solid piece of kit in a nice tidy package.  This PSU comes with a 32A +12v rail and only provides 2x PCIe connectors.  It is completely modular and features a nice large fan that provides very good cooling to this unit under normal circumstances.  When pulling 550W through this unit some components hit 50°C as measured with an IR Thermal probe, but we experienced no stability issues. . .

I would like to say a big "Thank you" to SunbeamTech for providing us with a Airbox 3.5" for today's review. Airbox 3.5" is an external hard drive enclosure which provides its users with portability of the file storage. For some it is very important to have an enclosure which they can transport to and from a particular location.

PowerColor has sent us their new Radeon HD 5770 PCS+ which is an overclocked version of the HD 5770, featuring a custom PCB design and thermal solution by PowerColor. Thanks to PowerColor's changes, the card can manage a reduced power consumption, which is even lower than the AMD reference design, resulting in a leading performance per Watt score.

The International Consumer Electronics Show offers a vast and overwhelming panoply of products, with exhibitors ranging from tiny, two-man booths from unknown Taiwanese companies to 4+ acre spreads from Microsoft and Intel. In addition to CES exhibits in the Las Vegas Convention Center, vendors have invitation-only hospitality suites set up in various hotels around the Strip. With over 2,700 exhibitors from more than 140 countries, you're not going to see everything even if you spend every waking moment traipsing the show floor. What follows is a list of things which caught my eye, or that I thought were technically cool; it's in no way comprehensive, or even very organized, but should give you some idea of what the show was like.

2010 CES: Computer Technology Highlights @ Benchmark Reviews

"Thermal grease increases the thermal conductivity between your CPU and the heatsink. Each thermal compound is different and choosing the right one will keep your CPU running a few degrees cooler. It may not mean much, but if you are an overclocker or modder than you know how precious each degree or even a fraction of a degree is."

Another one of the best!

Creativity and imagination is in every one of us. Some are very creative and some not so much. These two important senses could be trained and when it comes to tools, our next product might be a great aid. I would like to say thanks to Wacom from providing us with this item for a review.
