This week in the roundup, we've got announcements from Biostar, Lepa, and Silicon Power. Exciting, I know. My fingers are trembling with anticipation as I type.

SanDisk has updated the top end of its SSD range with the new Extreme Pro line. The biggest change is in warranty coverage: SanDisk is backing these drives for 10 years, in what looks to be a first for a consumer SSD. In addition to the generous warranty period, SanDisk...
Many of the new 9-series motherboards feature M.2 slots, but finding actual M.2 solid-state drives to fill them remains difficult. Happily, the ranks of M.2 drives seem to be growing—and Kingston has just enlarged them with a new addition. The M.2 2280...

Taiwanese hardware firms are probably saving their new hotness for Computex next week. Still, Corsair and Zotac provided fodder for this week's release roundup with a couple of low-end launches: "Zotac announces GeForce GT 740 series." Nvidia hasn't formally announced the GT 740, but the card...
