Corsair today introduced a new range of solid-state drives based on a new controller by Link a Media Devices (LAMD). The controller in question is known as LM87800 and will be exclusive to Corsair drives, featuring SATA III (6Gbps) support, error correction and wear leveling technologies, as well as advanced NAND management techniques to improve the endurance of onboard flash memory.
Corsair's new SSDs come in two flavors, both featuring a 2.5-inch form factor and slender 7mm height: the Neutron and Neutron GTX. The former uses ONFi NAND and comes in 120GB or 240GB capacities, while the latter is based on Toggle NAND and will be available in capacities of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB.

Corsair Memory introduced its original Dominator-series of memory modules back in 2006 to coincide with the launch of Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad microprocessors. The Dominator modules quickly became popular for their high performance, reliability, overclockability and wide availability worldwide. This summer, Corsair plans to revolutionize the memory market once again with the Dominator Platinum family of products.
Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory modules will use a new printed circuit board (PCB) with internal cooling planes/layers as well as external copper thermal pads that are specifically tailored to install specials DHX (dual-path heat exchange) aluminum fins that dissipate the heat absorbed by the PCB.

Unless you're lucky enough to live in Scandinavia, you'll have to wait till the end of summer to get your Cotton Candy fix. Aching to nab yourself a computer-on-a-stick before then? If you're willing to step down in specs, the Chinese-made MK802 could be the PC in your pocket. For $74 (versus $199 for the Cotton Candy), this 7-ounce device gives you a 1.5-GHz Allwinner A10 CPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of storage and, like the Cotton Candy, Android 4.0.
FXI's version, on the other hand, packs a dual-core 1.2-GHz Samsung Exynos processor, and while the MK802 offers an HDMI port, the Cotton Candy includes an HDMI connector.
