Super Talent Project X high-performance 4GB DDR3-1800 RAM kit

Super Talent Project X high-performance 4GB DDR3-1800 RAM kit

Super Talent Technology are already known on these pages for their high-performance solid state drives, but the memory company also specialises in speciality RAM under their Project X banner.  Intended for gamers and other users who demand excessive performance from their systems, Super Talent are claiming their new Project X DDR3-1800 4GB kit is the first on the market offering that much memory running at that fast a speed.  Rivals, apparently, have only managed DDR3-1600.

Corsair FB-DIMM kits hit 2GB and 4GB with new High-Density memory line for Mac Pros

Corsair FB-DIMM kits hit 2GB and 4GB with new High-Density memory line for Mac Pros

Both kits have two sticks each in them operating at 667MHz. You have your choice of 2x1GB sticks or 2x2GB sticks. The Memory is fully buffered and is 100% compatible with your Mac Pro and comes with a lifetime warranty.

So, all in one day Mac Pro users get a new graphics card option from NVIDIA, the best graphics card manufacturer there is on the planet, and a new memory upgrade option from Corsair, the best memory manufacturer on the planet. I’d say any Mac Pro user must be feeling extra important today, all things considered they are already using the best desktop computer there is on the planet.

Corsair also has a Mac notebook memory line as well, if you are a Mac Pro and a MacBook Pro owner looking to upgrade the RAM on both. These two kits however were tested at Apple’s laboratories in California to make sure everything works and is up to snuff, and they do work, the price isn’t bad either at $165 for the 2GB kit and $225 for the 4GB kit.

OCZ PC2-9200 Flex II DDR2 Series – World’s Fastest 4GB kit, and it uses DDR2

OCZ PC2-9200 Flex II DDR2 Series – World’s Fastest 4GB kit, and it uses DDR2

I wouldn’t even think of overclocking these DDR2-1150 memory chips considering they already require the use of an intense system of metal fins to dissipate heat and water cooling seems to be highly recommended with two lines going in and two going out of each stick’s processor-worthy heatsink. If you absolutely have to be on the bleeding edge of technology and you haven’t already switched to a board with DDR3 on it, these are the chips for you.

Klegg Electronics Genesis V1803 Camcorder reviewed – not so great

This digital camcorder from Klegg is like the Swiss Army knife of digital camcorders. However much like the knife, it can do a lot of things, but isn’t particularly well versed at any one of them. This particular digital camcorder can record video, capture still images, play video games, read ebooks, play music, take voice notes, and can’t manage to do any of them spectacularly.

Samsung releasing new 2GB-based server RAM

Samsung releasing new 2GB-based server RAM

Samsung is launching some the highest-density, lowest powered DDR2 memory for servers. This memory operates at 1.55V which is up to half what previous chips have operated at.

Now, I know I said these chips were for servers, but your Mac Pro and a lot of newer high end boards are also using FB-DIMMs or Fully Buffered DIMMs, so this could be for you to. They are going to be producing these particular chips in 4GB and 8GB capacities, which means if the 16GB in your Mac Pro just isn’t cutting it anymore, you can get an upgrade.

Sprint Instinct – when backed into a corner Sprint unleashes their primal Instincts

Sprint Instinct – when backed into a corner Sprint unleashes their primal Instincts

The Instinct is a device that Sprint partnered with Samsung to come up with. It has a 3.1-inch touchscreen with haptic feedback and there are also three hard keys below the screen, one for home, one for back, and one for phone functionality.

The phone has EV-DO Rev. A, GPS, and a Sprint/Samsung customized UI for near iPhone-like ease of use. There are other iPhone similarities including the Sprint Music Store, Navigation, TV, Visual Voicemail and a full HTML web browser, all of which, save for the a la carte music downloads, included in Sprint’s new Simply Everything $100 a month plan.

The home screen is customizable, kind of like the iPhone, it also has Bluetooth, with audible caller ID, expandable memory up to 8GB, a 2MP camera/camcorder, voice activated functions galore, threaded text messages, Mobile Sync, and the ability to operate as a modem. The dimensions of the device are a slim 2.17x4.57x.49 inches with a weight of 4.4 ounces, it also has a Li-Ion battery that provides up to 5.75 hours of continuous talk time.

OLPC – the newest target of overclocking

OLPC – the newest target of overclocking

I thought for sure this guide was going to involve DIP switches when I read that this computer only has a 433MHz processor. But it didn’t, its all software, or more precisely, firmware based.

The requirements are quite low too, you must have an OLPC, you must have a developer key or have disabled security prior to this hack, and you must be perfectly OK with bricking your OLPC if you screw up. The upside is that there is at least one report of someone overclocking their OLPC to 566/233 without having any issues such as system instability or overheating.
