I also look at how you can break through the 1000MB/second barrier using RAID0 SSD arrays on recent Intel motherboards.
There’s a look at how long will your SSD last and the mechanisms behind how you can tell the lifespan of your drive.
You’ll also find my write-up of Intel’s new Haswell processors and how the new Core i7 4770K performs and why its idle power consumption will turn a few heads.
I show a reader how to design a decent desktop system ready to edit 4K video coming from the new GoPro Hero3 Black edition action cam.
In my Android masterclass in APC July 2013, you’ll also find how it’s possible to hook up all kinds of storage – flash drives, SD readers, hard drives, even SSDs – direct to your smartphone.
And finally, in the Arduino masterclass, I show you how to build our brand-new walking robot, Stompy, from a low-cost chassis and an Arduino Uno microcontroller board.
Plus, there’s a whole heap more from APC’s team of writers, including the latest touchscreen notebooks and LCD monitors.
It’s all in the July 2013 issue of APC magazine, out now.
