SilverStone continues to enrich its SFX PSU portfolio. One of the most recent additions is the SX550, a budget-oriented unit featuring Gold-class efficiency and fixed cables instead of modular ones. As you can tell, it's intended to bring prices down.
Intel scored SMI's new SM2258 controller under an exclusive contract and paired it with SK hynix 16nm TLC flash for the new SSD 540s. Intel geared the 540s to attack the low-cost segment, but performance is always a key issue, so let's put it to the test.
Thermaltake recently released a new flagship Titanium-class PSU, the Toughpower DPS G RGB with 1250W max. power. Besides an RGB LED fan, this unit also features high performance, modular cabling, and compatibility with the SPM cloud platform.
The SMI SM2258 is the next small controller that will make a big impact on the entry-level and mainstream SSD market. The controller is already shipping with 2D NAND, but now it supports the new IMFT 3D NAND that will power several new SSDs.
