Having your data on the go is nothing really new at this point, portable flash memory has been readily available since around the turn of the century. What has changed though is the size, and how long it takes to move data on and off of the drive. Carrying hundreds of gigabytes is pretty common these days, but it’s not that practical if it takes several hours to fill and nearly as long to copy back off. Patriot has something a little different in mind. Packing up to 1TB of space, the EVLVR capitalizes on the blazingly fast Thunderbolt 3 Interface.

TeamGroup Vulcan TUF

When building a PC you’re always concerned with the compatibility of your chosen components. It can be quite the task to wade through the QVL of potential motherboards to verify that your ram will function correctly. Thankfully, if you choose to go with TUF certified components, this will not be an issue because all TUF hardware is guaranteed to be compatible across all components. A new member of the TUF Alliance is TeamGroup’s Vulcan TUF Gaming Alliance DDR4 Gaming Memory. This memory module is available in 2400/3000/3200/3600MHz frequencies and has a working voltage of 1.2 to 1.35v. Fitting with the TUF theme, it features a black and yellow military pattern on a full coverage aluminum heat spreader which should complement your TUF build perfectly.

Intel Core i9-9900K CPU

Today Intel releases their new 9th generation Core Processors, an update to the popular Coffee Lake-S Family. Socket LGA 1151 is still retained for this generation and compatibility with all 300 series motherboards including those with the new Z390 chipset. Intel’s mainstream offerings have topped out at 4 cores since the first Consumer quad-core CPU, the Core 2 Quad QX6700 that was released in November 2006. Granted, this was two dual-core dies on an MCM or Multi-Chip Module. The first truly quad-core die was 2 years later in 2008 with the Bloomfield based Core i7-900 series. 9 years later, Intel finally broke the mold with the Core i7-8700K, the first mainstream 6-core CPU. And finally, a year later, Intel brings us the 9th generation family. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the flagship, the eight-core, sixteen-thread Core i9-9900K.
