- GeIL Ultra Platinum 1GB Dual Channel PC4400 kit

GeIL have been producing some excellent quality modules for as long as I can remember, and their new 4400 (550mhz) kit is certainly no exception, offering awesome overclocking performance and bang for the buck, not to mention that extra assurance with GeIL's lifetime warranty policy. EnvyNews give this product a big thumbs up in their latest review, and also to GeIL's Value 1GB PC3200 kit of which was also reviewed by them recently.


Fighting the same fight with you is GeIL (Golden Empire Industrial Limited), they've been to those oc-anon meetings, and they know how you feel. Helping you to feed that addiction is their recently announced Ultra Platinum PC4400 550MHz 1GB Dual Channel DDR Kit. They get shipped in what has become synonymous with GeIL, the 'ultra' cool sliding-door container. This provides great protection during shipping and handling while still giving you easy access to the goodies inside.


- World's Largest HDD Makes it to Retail

XBit Labs' latest report lets us know that Hitachi's whopping 7K400 (the world's largest harddrive to date) has hit the scene. Current models come in a S-ATA only flavour, but there is said to be P-ATA versions on the way too. Being the world's largest and fastest drive (with respect to it's platter size) at 7200rpm, unfortunately the price of these monsters is inevitably going to be out of reach for most of us, at least for quite a while yet.. But hey, we can dream can't we?


The world's largest hard disk drive Hitachi 7K400 announced in early March 2004 is now available in Tokyo, Japan. The move indicates Hitachi's pretty aggressive time-to-market policy and may slowdown the sales of large HDD by other manufacturers.


The Deskstar 7K400 hard disk drive from Hitachi is now available for Serial ATA-150 interconnection, however, later on there will be a flavour of the 7K400 for Parallel ATA-33/66/100 bus. The new models feature 8MB of cache, similar to other high-performance 3.5" Serial ATA-150 HDDs.
