ADATA XPG V2 DDR3-1866 RAM Review

Jul 25, 15 ADATA XPG V2 DDR3-1866 RAM Review

Posted by in Accessories & Peripherals, Reviews

From the SX900 Solid-State Drive, we now go to another PC peripheral. The ADATA XPG V2 DDR3 RAM is the second version of the ADATA XPG DRAM and boots an eight-gigabyte random access memory power, separated in two four-gigabyte sticks at 1866MHz each. ADATA XPG V2 DDR3 RAM ADATA XPG V1 DDR3 RAM While the first version (V1) sports a straight-laced heat sink, the  ADATA XPG V2 DDR2 RAM exudes a more badass appearance with its rugged-looking top. The V2 sports the same silver-coated etches and ADATA and XPG logos. The stickers at one side may look ugly for some but you can’t remove them as it is said to void warranty. The V2 heatsink may also prove to be a bit tall for some PC builds. Like the SSD Drive, installation is really easy. Once the PC has been all booted up, and one can notice the stability the sticks bring. Overclocking wasn’t a problem, as it was really easy to do and no issues have been encountered. Using our test machine equipped with an Intel Core i7-4790 clocked at 3.6Ghz, an NVIDIA GeForce 770 card, Asus H97 Pro Gamer motherboard, and Antec 1200W PSU, we are able to overclock the RAM up to 2133MHz with ease. Here’s what we got from several benchmarks we have ran: ADATA XPG V2 1866MHz 2133MHz SiSoft Sandra Memory Bandwidth Integer Memory Bandwidth 14.215 GB/s 14.536 GB/s Float Memory Bandwidth 14.069 GB/s 14.455 GB/s SiSoft Cache & Memory Latency Memory Latency 81.2 ns 81.4 ns Speed factor 81.0 ns 81.3 ns PerformanceTest 8.0 Memory Database Operations 50.9 KOPS 48.1 KOPS Read Cache 18260 MB/s 18105 MB/s Read Uncached 6851 MB/s 6579 MB/s Write 4987 MB/s 4872MB/s Latency 78.7 ns 81.1 ns Threaded 14409 MB/s 14350 MB/s Based on data coming from various benchmark tests we have done, the V2 held significant improvements in almost all the tests when overclocked. The V2 also had better latency and speed factor results after being overclocked. Conclusion The ADATA XPG V2 DRAM is one...

Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper Case and Impact Screen Protector now available in PH

Jul 20, 15 Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper Case and Impact Screen Protector now available in PH

Posted by in Accessories & Peripherals, Gadgets, Mobile

The world’s strongest bumper case and screen protector are now available in the Philippines. Unlike the usual bulky, military and rugged cases currently available in the market, the Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper Case and Impact Screen Protector provide superior impact absorption and dispersion capability while still maintaining the slim profile of your device. The Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper Case and Impact Screen Protector are now available at Power Mac Center, Applewerkz, Lazada and other gadget stores nationwide. Pricing starts at Php 1,260. Rhino Shield Impact Protection Screen Protector The Impact Protection can effectively disperse impact, therefore significantly reduces the chance of shattered screen. The Impact Protection was engineered to be scratch resistant and could withstand high pressures, despite being 0.029 cm thin, practically as thin as three layers of print paper but highly transparent. It has an oleo phobic coating, a technology that keeps from smudges, droplets of water and all that nasty stuff you get on your phone, while maintaining a clear and smooth texture to glide your fingers on. Rhino Shield Crash Guard Bumper Case The Crash Guard uses a novel dual material in a one pieced construction. It is equipped with egg drop technology, a premium grade poly-carbonate derived hard-shell and a proprietary shock absorbing polymer that absorbs almost 90% of the impact of the phone dropped. It also has a protective honeycomb structure that also serves like an airbag dispersion compartment that absorbs 10-15% more of the impact of the drop. It features a minimal design approach. The goal is to cover up as little of your device as possible while adding maximum protection. The Crash Guard bumper- style case allows for as much exposure of your device and Apple’s original design as possible. It also has a matte finish, which is not only fashionable, but also serves as a means of enhancing your grip on your device. The finish also serves to make the bumper more durable as it is harder to scratch unlike cases and bumpers...
