Kingston HyperX Fury 8GB 1866MHz CL10 Memory (HX318C10FWK2/8) Review

Kingston Technologies have been in the memory business over two decades and are known for their reliable and fast memory. Today we are going to be looking at Kingston's new HyperX line called "Fury". This new Fury line from Kingston will position itself against its current mainstream HyperX Genesis and high-end HyperX Predator lines. The HyperX Fury pretty much lines up with its competitor from Corsair the Vengeance line. This will give consumers more options and widens that market share. The Fury line was not designed to be the best of the best, but is meant to meet that middle line between your beginning users and the higher-end clients. We have speeds ranging from 1333MHz to 1866Mhz which will be available in 8GB single sticks or 8GB to 16GB kits. Let's put the Kingston HyperX Furry DDR3 1866MHz kit we got for review to the test and see how well it performs.

Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 Memory Card & USB 3.0 MobileLite G3 Review

During our visit with Kingston at CES 2014 this year, we had a chance to sit down with them to talk about the new and up-coming flash memory cards that are designed for HD Media use. With the advancing and growing media recording industry, faster and more reliable flash memory cards are on high demand, especially those looking for high capacity to store everything on one card. With the standards of 1080p recording, Ultra HD 2160p and 3D/2K&4K resolutions on the horizon, the number of pixels on recording devices can no longer suffice with the slower and lower capacity memory cards. It has been a couple of months since the initial talk and today we finally got our hands on the Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 UHS-I U3 flash memory card. Kingston developed this particular card in three available sizes, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The last one will be the memory card we take a look at today. Kingston was also nice enough to send us the Kingston Mobile Lite G3 SD and Micro-SD card USB 3.0 reader as an extra bonus to be able to test the memory card today. With the speed advancements in the SDXC memory card, we wanted to make sure there are no bottlenecks.

Smaller Technology Killing the Overclock…or is it?

Let’s face it. Smaller technology sometimes scares us overclockers! I see my behemoth tower that’s as tall as my desk from the floor, and I wonder if the day will come if that tower is much smaller. The truth is, that is a very real possibility, especially with much of this mobile and small form factor technology today. The plug to overclocking is being pulled so that the consumers are stuck with exactly what they got. But have no fear, Overclockers! G.Skill has come to our rescue by showing us that smaller tech doesn’t mean smaller tweaks. Today, G.Skill just announced that its Ripjaws SO-DIMM 2133 MHz DDR3 memory was overclocked to an astounding 2600 MHz! Even if those DIMMs where full size DDR3, that would be an impressive overclock, but this is laptop memory! If that wasn’t enough, this overclock was achieved in ASRock’s barebones system, the “M8.” We’re not talking about a wind tunnel here. We’re talking about a tiny flat box that’s barely thicker than a tablet! While I might be exaggerating the size a bit, the point is well made that even if form factors permanently get smaller, overclocking isn’t going anywhere. I don’t see my giant tower going anywhere either in all reality, but as long as manufacturers are willing to give us the option, we’ll be more than willing to find the best ways to get the most out of any hardware we get our hands on. If you still don’t believe me, just do a search for a liquid cooled raspberry pi! Written by Josh...

Intel Improves Performance by 80%!!! There’s a Catch Though

In a world where every regime is trying to topple the current controlling empire, even small performance gains can become big news. Typically, a 10-15% performance gain on a new generation of CPUs is expected, but if that performance is increased by 20-25%, then excitement goes through the roof! Intel isn’t bragging about a mere 25% though. In their newest line up of Xeon processors, they are claiming up to an 80% increase in performance! At first glance, this is nothing short of astronomical, but upon further investigation, the implications of this move may not be the best thing for the PC gamer. Intel’s new family is the Xeon E7 V2. Depending on whether businesses want power or cores, they have a 6 core chip at 3.4 GHz and a 15 core chip at 2.8 GHz, as well as plenty of chips to fill in everywhere else. They also sport up to a 37.5 MB cache. Another point of interest in these specs is the die size. While the 6 core chips run a fairly standard 257mm2 die size, the 15 core chips are a massive 541mm2! To put this in perspective, an AMD FX-8350 has a die size of 315mm2. Unfortunately, this carries some of the same vibes that Haswell had when it released. While Haswell did increase performance, it felt very much like a factory overclocked Ivybridge chip. To initially sum up these new server chips, it feels like Intel simply decided that bigger is better. But what about that 80% performance increase? Here’s where In-Memory Analytics comes into play. For giant businesses ...
