OCZ Ultra-Slim Mini-Kart 1GB

Last year we had presented our findings from the OCZ Technology Rally drives, which was the company's first stab at creating a competitive USB flash device, and the drive has been the fastest competitor we have seen to this point and took its reign from the Corsair Flash Voyager. Today we have our hands on the recently announced OCZ Mini-Kart. What new items does the OCZ Mini-Kart Flash Drive bring to the table? Well, for one its size is a competitive factor.

Mobile HDD Cache Comparison

In an effort to gain a larger mobile penguin presence we have numerous notebook related articles under works and our first to deliver is a mobile cache comparison examining the benefits of an increased ATA-6 cache size, which is one of the ways to seek an increased performance over a HDD speed increase with the downfalls of that being an excessive amount of heat along with being noisy and wearing down the battery life. Just how well does the standard 8MB compare to 16MB on the Pentium M front?
