Corsair more typically show up on these pages for their SSD offerings, but that doesn't mean they aren't beavering away on other devices elsewhere. A good example is the Corsair Professional Series HX650W modular power supply, successor to the HX620W, and promising to be the best option for those building an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 PC.
Another week has come and gone leaving us with memories and a hoard of cool stories to throw your way for weekend reading in case you missed them over the week. An Asus 900HA netbook was hacked into a touchscreen slate on Monday and we really liked it. DIY gear is so cool, especially when it turns out this good. Monday also brought some details on the Blackberry Storm 2 piezo touchscreen tech. We really hope its better than the original Storm.
If you like your memory fast and you like it patriotic, then Corsair's latest Dominator chips may tick your boxes. The company has revealed its new 8GB and 12GB memory kits for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 systems, each with DHX+ cooling technology and "American Racing Blue" fins and highlights.
Corsair's new 128GB Flash Voyager GT thumb-drive is, the company claims, so speedy that its throughput is effectively limited by the capacity of a USB 2.0 port. That either means that USB 3.0 can't come quickly enough, or that Corsair's engineers basically wasted their time and could've slacked off in the latter stages of the Voyager GT's development.
Corsair are today re-releasing their Dominator GT ultra-performance DRAM, after pulling the chips from the market earlier this year due to "unacceptable failure levels of the Elpida "Hyper" components" used in their manufacturer. Now using new new materials, the re-launched Dominator GT chips are available in 4GB and 6GB kits for Intel and AMD high-performance processors.
Corsair's latest SSD range, the Extreme Series, has been announced, offering between 32GB and 128GB of storage with a new Indilinx Barefoot controller. The three solid-state drives - the Extreme X32, X64 and X128 - claim read speeds of up to 240MB/s and write speeds of up to 170MB/s.
Corsair have announced two new SSDs in its Performance Series range, bringing high read/write speeds to lower price points. The P128 and P64 - which unsurprisingly offer 128GB and 64GB respectively - slot in below the current flagship P256, with the P128 offering the same 220MB/sec read rate and 200MB/sec write rate.
