Toshiba wins race to 15nm in NAND flash memory field
What a relief it must be for OCZ to now be owned by Toshiba. Prior to the acquisition, OCZ had to fret about its supply of NAND flash memory chips, and that's not a concern for Toshiba, which makes its own. On top of that, Toshiba continues to advance the technology. To wit, Toshiba just announced it developed the world's first 15nm processor technology, which it's applying to 2-bit-per-cell 128-gigabit (16 gigabytes) NAND flash memories.
Super fast drive offers up to 1.8GB/s of sequential speeds, according to OCZ
It wasn't all that long ago when it seemed silly to think we'd ever saturate the SATA interface. Solid state drives have made that possible, which is why OCZ decided to tap into the PCI Express Gen. 2 x8 interface for its latest storage product. According to OCZ, it's RevoDrive 350 can hit up to 1.8GB/s in sequential performance, along with up to 140,000 4K random write IOPS.
The first memory cards to comply with the UHS-II standard
Toshiba is crowning its new microSD memory cards as being the fastest the world has ever seen. They're supposedly the first in the industry to comply with the UHS-II interface standard, which is an ultra high speed serial bus interface defined in the SD Memory Card Standard Version 4.20. Specifically, the new cards are UHS Speed Class 3 enabled, which allow for 4K video capture at constant minimum write speeds of 30MB/s.
The world's first laptop with Technicolor Color Certification
Toshiba was quick to embrace Intel's Ultrabook form factor during its infancy, and now that 4K displays are gaining traction, here comes Toshiba once again. The Toshiba Satellite P55t is a 15.6-inch laptop with a 4K Ultra HD In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, which offers up four times more pixels than a Full HD 1080p display. It's also supposedly the first notebook in the world to earn Technicolor Color Certification.
It seems like every PC hardware company on the planet has its own solid state drive (SSD) series -- except for AMD, that is. Rumor has it that's about to change. Word on the web is that AMD is working with Toshiba on a line of AMD brand SSDs. It's not uncommon to outsource such things, and as the rumor goes, Toshiba's building the drive based on the exact specifications AMD came up with.
It only took a mass of bull horns and the collective cries of power users far and wide, but dare we say that Microsoft finally got the message? It sure seems that way -- Windows 8.1 is improving on the Desktop side and is about to get a major update that will make things better than ever, the timing of which will come just as support for Windows XP comes to a screeching halt. Coincidence? We think not. Regardless, if you find the upcoming intriguing, then check out today's top deal for Microsoft's Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit for $125 with free shipping (normally $140 - use coupon code: [EMCPFPG22]).
