Corsair Flash Voyager 8GB

Last week we had examined the OCZ Mega-Kart 8GB flash drive, and now this week we have the privilege of covering Corsair's new CMFUSB2.0-8GB Flash Voyager. This USB flash drive offers a storage capacity of 8GB while promising 33MB/sec reads and 16MB/sec writes. Nevertheless, will this 8GB flash drive be able to continue in the legendary success we had previously seen by the Corsair Flash Voyager series?

OCZ Mega-Kart 8GB Flash Drive

OCZ Technology is at it again attempting to push the envelope for flash media. When they had introduced the Rally it was a smoking fast flash drive that had finally stolen the performance crown from Corsair's Flash Voyager. After that OCZ pushed the physical envelope for flash drives with the incredibly small Mini-Kart. Now OCZ Technology is at it again, but this time around they are attempting to push the storage capacity for computer users. The OCZ Mega-Kart offers an 8GB storage capacity while retaining a small footprint, and best of all an economically-minded price.

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?
