ASUS ROG G20CI Review
The ASUS ROG G20CI comes equipped with an NVIDIA GTX 1080 graphics card and an Intel Core i7 7700 processor to push those frames to your display. Alongside the grunt from the GPU and CPU, the G20 is bolstered with M.2 NVMe and a SATA HDD for storage to provide a balance between speed and capacity. Other included components include a 16GB of DDR4 memory, a slimline DVD player and built in 802.11AC WiFi.

ECS LIVA Q Review
The LIVA Q from ECS looks to impress by taking the LIVA design and further shrinking it to an absurd 0.15L volume. Compact, fully featured, and loaded with Windows 10, it offers a great deal considering its tiny size.

Gigabyte Z370 AORUS Gaming 3 Review
With the AORUS Gaming 3, Gigabyte has a well equipped mid-range motherboard in its portfolio, which comes with a bunch of interesting features. There are for example two M.2 Gen 3 x4 slots as well as a good looking design. Apart from that this model should feature a rather interesting price.

Home Reviews Storage m.2 SSDs Intel 760P 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD Review
We got our first glimpse of Silicon Motion's next-gen SM2262 controller at last year's Flash Memory Summit. Since then we've been eagerly awaiting our chance to test an SSD based on this powerful controller. Well, that day is finally upon us. Intel's 760p represents our first hands-on with the SM2262 and this drive delivers the goods in a big way. Silicon Motion's SM2262 controller is SMI's second go around with Intel and NVMe. Intel's 600p was their first M.2 NVMe SSD and it is powered by an SMI SM2260. The Intel 600p paired a Silicon Motion SM2260 controller with Intel 32-layer TLC flash and served up decent NVMe sequential read speeds for a super-low cost, but failed to deliver compelling overall performance.

Intel SSD 760P M.2 NVMe SSD Review (512GB)
Intel has just expanded their 3D NAND infused product portfolio with the release of three new SSDs, the Intel SSD 760P, Intel SSD Pro 7600P, and the Intel SSD E 6100P. The Intel SSD Pro 7600P and Intel SSD E 6100P are built for business and IoT applications, but the focus of today, for us at least, is the Intel SSD 760P. It is the latest consumer SSD on the block and after having it in our hands for the past week, it looks like it has a lot going for it thanks to its new 64-layer 3D TLC NAND.

Intel SSD 760P Solid State Drive Review: Higher Performance, Lower Cost NVMe Storage
Intel is refreshing its mainstream NVMe-based solid state storage line-up with a brand new SSD targeting mobile and desktop platforms, that has much higher performance but lower power than its predecessors. The Intel SSD 760P series of solid state drives being introduced today combine the latest Intel 3D NAND with a third-party controller, and some custom firmware, to increase performance versus previous-gen offerings but also bring NVMe SSD pricing closer to SATA.

We’ve got a 512GB Intel SSD 760P series drive in house and have tested it alongside a wide range of NVMe PCIe-based SSDs, including the ultra-high-end Intel Optane 900P...

Intels SSD 760p Series 512 GB solid-state drive reviewed
NAND from the Intel-Micron Flash Technologies foundries is a common sight in the TR labs. The fruits of Intel and Micron's (soon-to-be-defunct) joint partnership end up in a wide array of internal and removable media. It might surprise you to recall, then, that the last mainstream Intel-branded drive we reviewed was the trailblazing 750 Series nigh on three years ago. Well, there was Optane, but that one's a bit of an odd duck. In any event, Intel hasn't been sitting on its hands in all that time, but the drives constituting the company's current lineup haven't found their way into our hands of late.

The name of the game for that lineup now is 3D NAND. Intel introduced IMFT's second-generation, 64-layer 3D TLC into its client portfolio with the SSD 545s last summer. That left the older NVMe SSD 600p in a bit of an awkward position. The PCIe drive was left to languish on the previous-gen, 32-layer stuff and could barely outpace the new SATA drive on paper.

Patriot Viper V560 Mouse Review
As just about every manufacturer has entered the peripheral game, it’s becoming more and more difficult to stand out while catering to all ends of the market. Patriot’s Viper line has already proven itself to contend with the best thanks to its feature-packed V570 flagship, but does the V560 have what it takes to edge its way into the mid-range market?

Samsung 860 Pro 1TB SATA III SSD Review
For well over three years Samsung has dominated the SATA SSD market with their potent 850 Series SSDs. When first introduced, nothing delivered performance that was even close to what the 850 Series served up. Over time though, the competition has been inching closer, but still no one has been able to snatch the SATA SSD performance crown from Samsung. We didn't think Samsung would offer another SATA SSD beyond the 850 Series, but here it is...the 860 Pro. Samsung designed a new controller to power the 860 Pro. This controller is designated MJX. Samsung's new MJX controller offers many improvements over previous models including expanded system compatibility, a refined ECC algorithm and improved queued TRIM for Linux systems. Powered by Samsung's MJX controller and paired with Samsung's latest 64-layer 2-bit V-NAND technology, the 860 Pro delivers endurance that is up to 8x better than the 850 Pro. Samsung states that the 860 Pro's new feature set assures long-term dependable performance with minimal degradation. Compared to its predecessor, the 850 Pro, the 860 Pro provides up to 25% better-sustained workload performance, along with class-leading sequential read/write speeds of up to 560/530 MB/s.

Samsung 860 PRO SSD Review
Samsung released the 850 PRO way back in July 2014 (our review) and the series was quickly found to be an ideal drive for PC gamers, enthusiasts and storage snobs needing a SATA SSD. We’ve pretty much saturated the SATA III interface and as a result of that there hasn’t been anything too terribly exciting in the SATA SSD market in recent years. Enthusiasts looking for bleeding edge storage technology have moved on to PCIe NVMe storage drives, but those drives cost more and have capacity limitations. After a long 4-years the folks over at Samsung figured now is the time to freshen up what they have to offer the SATA SSD market by launching the 860 PRO and 860 EVO series.

We got our hands on a 2TB Samsung SSD 860 PRO for testing, so we’ll be focusing on the 860 PRO series today. The new Samsung SSD 860 PRO series is made up of only 2.5″ SATA III drives in capacities of 256GB, 512GB, 1TB, 2TB and a whopping 4TB. Samsung is focusing on larger drive sizes due to the surge in consumers with high-resolution photos and 4K and even 8K videos. Under the hood the new 860 PRO series uses the latest 512Gb and 256Gb 64-layer V-NAND, up to 4GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM and a new MJX controller. That combination of parts is good for up to 560 MB/s sequential read and 530 MB/s sequential write speeds. Samsung also claims that the 860 PRO provides up to 25% better sustained performance compared to that of its predecessor (850 PRO).

Samsung Portable SSD T5 1TB Review
Solid state memory, while remaining significantly more expensive that traditional mechanical hard disks, continues to encroach on their territory. Inexpensive and high-capacity bus-powered USB external drives are even being challenged by external SSDs, for consumers who appreciate the advantages of much higher performance, smaller size, and greater reliability they afford. Samsung has been a pioneer in this field with their Samsung Portable SSD T3 external drives, and today Benchmark Reviews checks out their latest product, the 1 terabyte Portable SSD T5.

Samsung SSD 860 Pro Review: Fast, Reliable SATA Solid State Storage
Bleeding-edge NVMe solid state drives are a hot commodity in the enthusiast space and the premium laptop market, but there are still billions of legacy SATA ports out there just waiting to be attached to fast, reliable solid sold state storage. To that end, Samsung is delivering some band new SATA-based solid state drives today using the company’s latest 64-layer 3D V-NAND flash memory and a new controller – the Samsung SSD 860 PRO and 860 EVO Series drives.

We’ve got a 2TB Samsung SSD 860 Pro in-house and have put it through its paces alongside some other recently-released SATA-based solid state drives.

The numbers may not be as sexy as some killer NVMe PCIe-based SSDs, but as you’ll see in the end, the Samsung SSD 860 PRO is still a heck of a performer...

Samsungs 860 Pro 1 TB solid-state drive reviewed
Good as they are, Samsung's 850 series of SSDs has grown rather wizened. The line made its debut with the high-end 850 Pro all the way back in the summer of 2014, followed by the 850 EVO a few months later. But despite all the time that Samsung's competitors have had to try to close the gap, no drive has truly been able to displace the 850 EVO as the market's mainstream darling. With as little competitive pressure as Samsung has faced and with the SATA interface's ceiling on performance, there's been little reason for drastic change in the company's SATA SSD lineup.

But Samsung hasn't spent the last few years taking its advantage for granted. 3D NAND was still a young technology in 2014. The 850-series drives were powered by Samsung's second-generation, 32-layer V-NAND. The first-gen stuff never made it into a client drive. Samsung's stacks of flash have tripled in height since then—the company recently announced its forthcoming fifth-generation, 96-layer V-NAND. That flash may mark the end of line for Samsung's layer jenga. The company has hinted it will likely be seeking future gains through means other than adding more layers.

Sapphires Radeon RX Vega 56 Pulse spotted online
As a part of the Sapphire budget-oriented Pulse series, the new RX Vega 56 Pulse, which was originally spotted by Videocardz.com and listed at Alternate.de, uses a custom PCB which draws power from two 8-pin PCIe power connectors. The dual fan, the dual-slot cooler is much longer than the actual PCB, leaving those two 8-pin power connectors in the middle of the card.
According to the listing, the Sapphire RX Vega 56 Pulse works at a base clock of 1208MHz and GPU Boost clock set at 1512MHz, which is a 52MHz and 41MHz higher than the reference version. It also comes with 8GB of HMB2 memory, clocked at 800MHz.
