Samsung SSD Upgrade Kit Launched

Samsung have announced that in partnership with Symantec they have released a new SSD Upgrade Kit designed to improve the usability of their 470 series solid state drives.

The 470 Series SSD upgrade kit is bundled with a full version of Norton Ghost 15.0, which is included to help alleviate backup and recovery issues that many users experience when upgrading their main installation drive. The kit is designed with novices in mind, making installation easy and convenient.

To round of this kit Samsung are including the required connecting cables and new adjustable mounting brackets so this really is a complete package. This kit aims to bring SSD upgrades to the masses where many are put off by the complexities of a relatively young technology compared to the tried and tested disc drives.

The Samsung 470 series has already proved successful in Korea where it was launched back in January and Samsung UK are now finally releasing it into the UK market. Samsung hope that bundling their most recent SSD with a full version of Norton Ghost 15.0 as well as the required cables and instructions, will make it very appealing for consumers looking to upgrade their laptop or desktop for increased performance.

With the SSD market expected to expand by more than three times by 2015 appealing to the wider less experienced market is clearly a good move by Samsung. Many enthusiasts will likely opt for more performance oriented drives and although this is only a tiny sector of the market we would hope that Samsung cater for those users as well.

Game Over

What were your temps doing at the time?

I know the temps did not get hot or anything, stayed nice and cool, as far as any changes between the temp and GPU usage, as far as I can remember I think the graph for temps were pretty straight no major ups or downs.

If it happens again I will try to remember to take a screen shot of the Afterburner program and post it here.

Do you have opportunity to not use Afterburner ? Either something else or nothing, just AMD's driver package.

Why do you ask? Do you think its an afterburner issue?

Ya I could shut afterburner down but I like using it to customize my fan speeds.

I'd use AB and turn on the osd for in game and see whats happening. When I game I monitor temps gpu usage mem uagse as well as fan speeds its small and in the upper right corner of screen so it doesnt detract from the game at all.

Game Over
It just happened again, Game has been running great with all settings at max, FPS staying in the 70's. Then I got to a part of the game where there are a bunch of us in a line shooting up a building to tear it apart, the FPS instantly dropped down to about 7 and gpu went to zero.

I am thinking maybe it has something to do with the PHYS X.

I believe it is a Nevidia thing and maybe my card is not liking it.

You can see everything is running normal then suddenly GPU usage drops.


Ok so I turned PHYS X off, tried the same mission and there was no drop in FPS or GPU usage at all, I will leave it off and see if the issue stops for good.

Game Over
My card is an AMD card, The PHYSX is a NVIDIA thing, I think its just not compatible with my card, the physx does work to some extent but it seems to crash the card when the effect gets heavy.. As for the drivers, ya, all up to date.

Nah, I only mentioned it cos as I mess with alot of cards, a minority of them do weird things with ab.

It's just like a game company to be that inept to have an option selectable when you can't do it.

Be nice if they had the physx cpu using dlls in there.
