Kingston MobileLite Wireless G3 / Pro 05-17-2016

With the popularity of mobile devices like smartphones, tablets and other handhelds (most of which have a fixed amount of storage built in), Kingston realized there was a need for an easy-to-access-external storage device. While cloud-based storage is often the most simple way to back up or transfer your digital media, there are occasions where access to the Internet or cloud service may not be available. The Kingston MobileLite Wireless devices address these concerns.

Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Socket 1151 Motherboard 01-12-2016

With the introduction of the Intel Z170 chipset, we see a number of changes from the previous Z97 and several improvements. First and foremost is a new socket specification for the CPU, the 1151. Although not compatible with previous socket interfaces as far as the CPU is concerned, the overall dimensions are nearly identical, allowing for interchangeability with other 1150/1155/1156 compatible coolers. Another change is the switch to DDR4 memory. The DMI version 3.0 grants a greater number of PCI-E lanes between CPU and chipset, allowing manufacturers to implement more M.2 or SATA Express, as well as more USB 3.0 ports. For our Skylake build, Gigabyte has sent over their Z170X-UD5 motherboard.
