Typically when Microsoft releases a new version of Windows we see a Release To Manufacture (RTM) version of Windows that ships in August and then the official version would be released by October. We know this will not be the case as Microsoft already announced that Windows 10 will be shipping this summer.
It looks like Intel will only be launching two socketed LGA1150 Broadwell parts in June. Typically we see a full refresh, but this is not the case with Broadwell. It could be because Intel has large Core Haswell inventories that they still need to get rid of, that Broadwell could be to short of a stopgap between Haswell and Skylake, or BGA chips becoming more commonplace.
Corsair has just released their Dominator Platinum DDR4 3400 MHz memory kits. These kits were first shown off a CES back in January and run at a very impressive speed of 3400 MHz. This kit is designed to work specifically with Gigabyte’s X99-SOC Champion motherboard. The memory and motherboard duo together create one of the highest performance enthusiast PC platforms currently available.
Gigabyte has just introduced the 990XA-UD3 R5 Socket AM3+ motherboard, this is their first AM3+ motherboard in a long while.

We have not seen a new solid state drive from Patriot in a while. Over the past couple years they sort of took a step back from the SSD industry and focused more on flash memory products and mobile accessories. Well it looks like they are back full a line of solid state drives. Today we will be taking a look at their Ignite drive, which sits at the top of the pack. This drive is powered by the Phison’s latest S10 controller and offers sequential read and write speeds of 560 MB/s and 545 MB/s respectively. The Corsair Neutron XT drive, which took home a perfect 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award is also based on the same Phison S10 controller so we are expecting good things from the Ignite. Will it perform? Read on as we find out!
