Corsair launching new 'Extreme' solid state drives

Memory manufacturer releases new high performance storage range

Memory maker Corsair has announced additions to its range of solid-state hard drives. The new 'Extreme Series' is a collection of three high performance drives which are perfect as primary drives in notebooks and desktop systems and come in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities.

The drives have been designed with speed in mind and can offer read speeds of up to 240MB per second with write speeds reaching up to 170MB per second, perfect for the handling of large files. The speed increase is significantly faster than previous SSD drives from Corsair and competitors Western Digital.

These new drives have more than just speed on there side, as they can also be upgraded. End-users can upgrade the drives' firmware via the Corsair website in order to add more functionality and ensure optimal performance from the device over time.

Corsair is yet to reveal pricing for the drives, but the usual SSD premium is expected.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
