Back when we tested Plextor's first NVMe SSD, the M8PeY, we came away impressed. The M8PeY is an MLC-based NVMe SSD that is powered by Toshiba 15nm planar MLC flash and Marvell's 88SS1093 Gen3x 4 NVMe controller codenamed Eldora. What impressed us so much about this SSD was its low QD random performance as well as its low QD sequential read performance. The M8PeY we tested also had at the time, the best heat sink design we had ever seen on an SSD.
Even though Flash Memory Summit 2017 was cut short by a fire on the showroom floor, TweakTown was able to take a close look at some of Phison's upcoming SSD technology. We even got a chance to bench the Phison E8 in our hotel room using our own test equipment. The main star of the show for Phison is their soon-to-be-released, value-oriented Phison E8 NVMe SSD. The E8 isn't designed to compete for any performance crown; it is designed to compete for the value crown.
For years, we've been hoping for legitimate competition to challenge the supremacy of Samsung's mighty 850 series SATA III SSDs. To date, nothing powered by TLC flash has been to step up to the table. In-fact, really nothing that is MLC powered has been able to outperform Samsung's 850 EVO series, except for the 850 Pro and even then, it is questionable which is the faster drive.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
