The M6 brings the previous generation up to 2014 standards. It swaps in an updated controller, the latest Toggle-mode flash, and continues a trend of refining firmware to keep enthusiasts as current as possible with the latest fixes and optimizations.

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire XT Review reported at 12:32 PM
category: Keyboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire XT is not a perfect product, but it comes very close for a mechanical keyboard in this product's price range as it is easy to find Cherry MX red keyboards well over the $100 mark.

Plextor PX-256M6M Review reported at 12:22 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: CDRLabs.com
Article Quote:
"Plextor has come a long way over the last few years. The company has gone from being an also ran to one of the leading innovators in the consumer SSD market. While not as revolutionary as some of Plextor's previous offerings, the M6M is the mSATA SSD to combine Marvell's 88SS9188 "Monet Lite" controller with Toshiba's new Advanced 19nm (A19) Toggle Mode MLC NAND flash. The 88SS9188 has half the NAND flash channels as the 88SS9187 "Monet" controller found in the M5M and M5 Pro. However, thanks to a custom firmware, the M6M is still able to deliver a fast, responsive computing experience. In our sequential read and write tests, the PX-256M6M was able to read at speeds as high as 521 MB/s and write at speeds in excess of 432 MB/s. It also did reasonably well our random write tests, producing more than 62,000 IOPS at low queue depths."

Plextor PX-AG512M6e Review reported at 11:59 AM
category: PC Card Hard Drives     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Getting over the SATA III bottleneck with a single drive has been a dream for quite some time for many enthusiasts and whilst there are some PCIe options out there on the market, the price of these has resulted in another stumbling block for many of those. The M6e from Plextor has opened a gateway to faster storage with a price that I anticipate is going to be desirable as well. If this is the way that storage is going, I look forward to seeing the response from a number of other key storage vendors later this year."

Intel Core i7-4960X 3-way SLI Gaming Performance Scaling reported at 11:48 AM
category: Socket 2011     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Putting more than two graphics cards into a gaming PC is basically not going to affect frames per second in most games. There are only very few titles where triple SLI is supported. The only reasonable thing to use triple SLI for is for breaking world records. Only when running theoretical benchmarks we come accross consistent scaling and with most of the games, there is no difference at all.

Cooler Master Storm Xornet Review reported at 11:25 AM
category: Mice     website: TweakNews.net
Article Quote:
If you've never used a claw grip mouse before, be sure you understand the differences between the Xornet and traditional palm-grip mice before making a blind purchase. Once you're confident a claw style suits you, then I can highly recommend this offering from CM Storm.
