EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW ULTRA SILENT GAMING Video Card Review
With the new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti FTW Ultra Silent Gaming video card, EVGA is proposing a high-performance solution for 1440p or even 4K with medium to high details. All card clocks are identical to the stock Founders Edition due to Nvidia locks, but the card can be overclocked as soon as you boot to the OS thanks to the dedicated tool. Thanks to the huge triple-slot cooling solution, the card remains very silent even during demanding titles or even when overclocked, which can be considered a great selling point.

Gigabyte GTX 1070 Ti Gaming OC 8G Review
In November, BabelTechReviews purchased a Gigabyte GTX 1070 Ti Gaming OC 8G video card from Amazon for $489 for the purpose of testing GTX 1070 Ti SLI. Since then, we have reviewed the Red Devil RX Vega 56 versus the GTX 1070 Ti Founders Edition, and found it a worthy competitor even though the Adrenalin 17.14.4 drivers are somewhat unstable. It is natural to compare aftermarket versions against each other, and now that AMD has released stable 18.1.1 drivers, we are going to review the Gigabyte GTX 1070 Ti Gaming OC 8G versus the PowerColor Red Devil RX Vega 56 using 36 modern PC games.

M.2-heatsinks review: which SSD-cooler performs best?
Fast m.2-SSDs have the tendency to become quite hot. If you are reading or writing a lot of data, an NVMe-SSD will more often than not throttle in order to keep the temperature within acceptable limits. Motherboard manufacturers thought of something to prevent this: nowadays many motherboards come with heatsinks that you can stick on your SSD, while cooling brands such as EK even sell standalone m.2-heatsinks. Although, do these metal plates in all shapes and sizes even work?

Patriot Viper LED Series DDR4 3000 MHz Memory Review
It’s never an easy decision on what components to use in your system. Some components are easier to choose than others. With processors, its core count and clock speed. With SSD's, it usually comes down mostly to capacity and interface. Whether its SATA or NVME. However, with memory, there are several factors to consider.

Plextor M8PeGN 256GB NVMe M.2 SSD Review
Solid state drives have been with us for many years and today, it occupies every other PC with its proven performance. SSDs features an improved transfer rate and faster boot time ensuring the worthiness of technology. Following the years, SSDs have grown and improved at their highest maturity level. The Plextor SSD replicate and peak at 600 MB/s that fulfills most of the gamers needs. Now, question pops up, would that 600 MB/s be any less in gaming? No, definitely not. However, upgrading in technology was imminent which brought 1300 Mb/s to 24500 Mb/s via NVMe development. NVMe based SSDs have been in the market for several years now. Plextor’s M8PeGN series is one of the finest in competition, which, I believe, has something significant to offer.

While 3D NAND offers exponential storage and longer durability in SATA III SSDs, the speed was limited and never improved to 600 MB/s no matter how expensive the drive. In order to remove this bottleneck, the only effective solution was the PCIe Lane utilization. This is where NVMe M.2 SSDs comes to business. Besides the controller, NVMe M.2 SSD consumes PCIe lane formula to produce massive speed, which also have an effect on the price and that is the reason why NVMe and SATA III SSDs have a noticeable price gap. NVMe (nonvolatile memory Express) uses PCIe lane to perform which results in 5x better performance than HDD and about 3x better than SATA III SSD.

It’s no wonder NVMe has removed the speed bottleneck by making use of PCIe lanes. Basically, NVMe works perfect on Gen3 x4 interface. The fact is, PCI-express Gen 3 has been the fastest PCIe lane to date. Therefore, when NVMe PCIe M.2 unit feeds from Gen 3 PCIe lanes, the actual performance shoots up and quadruple the performance; the sequential read boasts a whopping 2500 Mb/s, regardless of the capacity/storage, as opposed to SATA III SSD’s 600 Mb/s. The above performance numbers for M.2 SSD is from the best model available in the market. At this time, the price difference has been gradually coming closer which allowing users to experience the blazing fast speed on M.2 SSD at reasonable prices.
