Green hard drive, enterprise SSD, gaming PC and low-voltage RAM

With the launch of AMD’s Radeon HD 6900 series we can expect to see a wide range of companies announcing their own tweaked versions of the graphics card. 

MSI is one of the first, revealing the R6850-2PM2D2GD5 and R6870-2PM2D2GD5, which, according to Hexus, feature a clock speed of 800MHz or 880MHz respectively, 2GB of RAM, advanced vapour chamber fan control and come with 3DMark 11 bundled.

Seagate is going green with the new Barracuda Green hard disk drive, reported by StorageReview. This 3.5-inch low power eco-friendly device is the highest performing in its class, with a spin speed of 5900RPM, a 64MB cache, 5GB/s SATA interface, and capacities of 1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB. Seagate has not yet revealed prices, however.

If an SSD is more to your liking, check out the new MKx001GRZB series enterprise-class SSDs from Toshiba. According to HotHardware, these 2.5-inch solid state drives come in capacities of 100GB, 200GB and 400GB, while delivering read speeds of 510MB per second and write speeds of 230MB per second.

TweakTown reviewed the V3 Avenger Core i7 930 Gaming Desktop PC, giving it a rating of 93 percent and the Best Features Award. It was praised for excellent gaming performance, including in 3D, as well as its good build quality and overclocking ability. It lost marks when the reviewers couldn’t get 3DMark Vantage to work with it.
