Corsair Prepares Padlock Flash Drives

Corsair Memory is working on new Padlock flash drives with enhanced hardware-based security. The new drives are bundled with Padlock technology which offers users a quick and easy way of protecting their data. By using the buttons on the Padlock's outer shell, a 1 to 10 digits long user defined PIN code has to be entered and validated in order to receive access to the data found on the NAND flash chip. The Padlock security system is centered around the customizable PIN code and doesn't require any special software to be installed on the machine it is connected to. Also, the Padlock boasts a feature that will automatically lock the drive as soon as it is disconnected. The drives will be available in 1 and 2 GB capacity flavours and will be released later this quarter. The drives will be backed up by a 3 year warranty.

8-pin PCIe Adapter Cables from Corsair

As the high-end R600 cards require an 8-pin PCI-Express power cable to be plugged into the corresponding connector (look at the pictures of the HD 2900XT and OEM XTX) especially if you intend to overclock these, power supply manufacturers started to design adapter cables for their current iteration of PSUs that don't come with 8-pin PCIe cables natively. The guys from BeQuiet!/Listan were then the first in providing such adapter cables for free, see the details here.
Now Corsair stepped into the line as well and if you live in the U.S. you can contact Corsair's Customer Service and will be charged for the shipping only an Official Corsair Representative over at the [H]ard|Forum mentioned.
But remember, this will only apply if you purchased the power supply during the last weeks.

Corsair Introduces the Flash Survivor Series

Corsair has just launched a new series of ultra-durable USB flash drives, nicknamed Survivor. Building on the massive success of the Flash Voyager line-up, the new (limited availability) Flash Survivor is an extremely durable, water resistant, drop-tested flash USB memory drive. The Corsair Flash Survivor USB drives are available in 4GB and 8GB capacities. The Survivor drives are made of extremely strong CNC-milled, 6061 Type 2 Aluminum, the same used in aircraft parts manufacturing. They are water resistant to 200m, protected from vibration or impact damage and work flawlessly with any USB 2.0 certified peripheral computer port (backward compatible with USB1.1). All Corsair Suvivor drives are also protected by a 10 year limited warranty.

Corsair has new USB sticks

Corsair has a new line up of specially designed USB sticks. The first one is named Survivor, and it comes in two flavors - the ordinary one and the faster GT. The main feature of this aluminum made stick is that it can withstand severe mechanical abuse. In theory, you can use it underwater at 200 meters below sea level. They will available in 4 and 8 GB of capacity.

The second one is for the one who fears that someone might find out their little secrets from their memory stick. Named PADLOCK, it has a special keyboard, which allows you to set a password. If you want to use the stick, you have 20 seconds to enter the password. Otherwise, if you don't enter, or enter the incorrect one, Windows won't even see the drive at all. The drive hasn't got any lockout mechanism or master code, so there is no limit in number of attempts to enter the right key.

Corsair redefines power supply efficiency at CeBIT

Corsair, known for making quite good RAM among other things, is apparently really getting serious about the power supply business. Most power supplies on the market today are anywhere between 50 and 85% efficient, with the vast majority of power supplies being between 75 and 85% efficient under load. Corsair had a brilliant power supply at their CeBIT booth, which had an impressive 90% load efficiency. This allowed it to power an AMD QuadFX system with G80 SLI, 4GB of PC2-8000 DDR2 RAM, and a 150GB hard drive with a 620W power supply (most people at the show expected an 850W-1kW PSU to be required). To be honest, Corsair has actually had this power supply on the market for a while, and probably couldn't wait for CeBIT to make it available. You can get this extremely efficient power supply here (oh look it's on sale).

Corsair to use DHX cooling on all XMS2 modules

Corsair has decided to disband its popular "flashy LED" XMS2 Pro-series modules in favor of moving to the newer, and more efficient, DHX cooling solution used on its high-end Dominator memory modules.

Instead of being colored black like the ones on the Dominator modules, Corsair has decided to keep the silver/metallic colour scheme used on the Pro-series heatspreaders on the new XMS2 modules.

In the past, the company has had to speed bin for XMS2, XMS2-Pro and XMS2-DHX PCB designs, all of which were different. This meant that the company almost stopped producing new XMS2-Pro modules and it has also cut back on standard XMS2 modules too in favor of expanding its Dominator memory series. Now, Corsair will be able to speed bin all modules together.

Corsair Launches Flash Voyager GT line of USB Drives

Corsair, today launched the new Flash Voyager GT line of USB drives designed for the user who demands the highest performance in a USB memory product.

Built to Corsair's legendary quality and reliability standards, the new Flash Voyager GT USB drives deliver sustained read/write performance up to 34MB/sec and 28MB/sec respectively. Each Flash Voyager GT features hand-selected NAND flash and advanced controller which delivers file transfer up to 5X faster than typical USB drives.
