Release roundup: High-speed memory and e-sports headsets
We don't have much fodder for our release roundup this week—just a couple of stories from Adata and Cooler Master. Here they are:
- Adata launches newest XPG V2 3100 overclocking memory. Designed with Intel's new Z87 chipset in mind, Adata's XPG V2 3100 is an 8GB memory kit that, as its name suggests, is rated for operation at up to 3100MHz. In case you're wondering, 3100MHz works out to a peak transfer rate of 24.8GB/s per DIMM—not too shabby. Reaching that speed involves bumping the signal voltage to 1.65V and relaxing the timings to 12-14-14-36, but the memory has an XMP 1.3 profile that will take care of that for you. Other perks include a "high-quality 8-layer printed circuit boards" and a choice between gold and gray aluminum heatsinks.
- CM Storm Pulse-R aluminum gaming headset for e-sports. This new headset from Cooler Master features "custom 42mm drivers," a detachable in-line remote, a detachable noise-canceling microphone, an aluminum headband, and "white-LED lighting." The icing on the cake? Removable aluminum ear plates, which Cooler Master invites pro gamers to laser-etch with their team's name. The CM Storm Pulse-R headset is now shipping, and it carries a $89.99 suggested retail price in the U.S. and Canada.
Other notable releases this week include Asus' MeMO Pad HD 7 tablet, Origin's 13" EON13-S gaming laptop, and, of course, Nvidia's Shield handheld console.
