Apacer introduces combo SSD Apacer combo SSD
"In order to address the performance and cost issues currently faced by solid-state drives (SSDs), Apacer Technology recently introduced a combo SSD equipped with both multi-level cell (MLC) and single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash chips.

Apacer indicated that the 2.5-inch combo SSD supports a memory density up to 96GB with 32GB of memory as SLC NAND flash and the remainder as MLC flash. The company stressed that the mixture could be adjusted in accordance to customer requests. The SSD operates as two individual storage devices after installation.

Apacer said the SSD targets notebooks and ultra-mobile PCs (UMPCs) but could also be adopted for server, industrial PC (IPC) and other applications."
Smart move Apacer. Let's hope the community supports the combo SSD's.

Dual-slot FTW! even though all the cards I have are single slot lol. Should be able to squeeze a good OC out of it, but I dunno really- seems like the 9-series isnt worth it if you've got a decent 8-series card already.

Had a look at hp pc at work, which supposidely has got the 9800GT, took gpu-z shot, but tbh the cooler inside is exactly the same as 9600GT or 8800GT one


edit: btw im not too sure this might be just the oem sorta stuff which differs from retail, but that card had only one 6-pin power connection

It is running on drivers that don't support the 9 series. :o
Not sure what it really is.

Are the 9800GT's 1024MB?

Plus, isnt the texture fill rate on the 8800GT 4.2GPixel/s?

Bah, dual socket ftl :(

If the tech needs it, then fair enough. But 1 thing I liked about the 8800GT was it`s single-slotted-ness. Such power for a single card.

(any issues aside of course)

I never had extreme heat issues myself. Every1 tended to tell me the issues I had were heat. Then nVidia came out with the 9 series drivers.. that fixed my issues ?!?!? hehe Although the memory cooling is pretty poor, and doesn`t seem to get better looking at sneaked 9800GT picks.

Meh, needs as needs must. Don`t know myself where the extra power for the 9800GTX goes, so why should the 9800GT be any different lol.

.. c`mon release em :p

I must be the only person in the world not to have issues with the 8800GT and heat. Mine runs well cool really.

I have the fan all the way down silent at 20% for all use apart from 3D gaming as temps would rocket then. When I'm gaming I up the fan to 60% and temps linger around the 55 - 60 degree mark. Can't hear it over all the guns.

I love dual slot coolers and single slots are a little useless.
Much rather see a GPU temp in the 30s and 40s.

Well as long as it helps with OC'ing etc etc dual slot and 2 power connectors aint that bad really!!

I always was under the impression that the 2 6pins on 9800GTX were mainly for tri-sli use??

Idk lol was always my own speculation :D

Dual slot = pwnage tbh.
