OCZ Unveils New SDHC Memory Cards

OCZ Technology Group introduced a new line of SDHC flash memory cards to their high performance Secure Digital family. OCZ SD High Capacity (SDHC) cards comply with the new SDA 2.00 specification to support capacities over 2GB and are available in 4GB (OCZSDHC4S-4GB) and 8GB (OCZSDHC4S-8GB) configurations.

Compliant with specifications determined by the SD Association, OCZ SDHC cards are Speed Class 4 rated, ensuring a minimum write speed of 4MB/s. These high capacity cards are only compatible with SDHC compliant products and are not backwards compatible with traditional SD format devices.

All OCZ Secure Digital HC Cards come backed with a 3 year warranty.

RightMark CPU Clock Utility 2.25 Released!

RightMark CPU Clock Utility (RMClock) is a small GUI application designed for real-time CPU frequency, throttling and load monitoring and on-the-fly adjustment of CPU performance on supported CPU models via processor's power management model-specific registers (MSRs). In automatic management mode it continuously monitors CPU usage and dynamically adjusts CPU frequency, throttle and/or voltage level as needed, realizing the "Performance on Demand" concept.


  • Fixed Intel Core 2 core name detection.
  • Fixed battery device info display when a battery is not actually attached.
  • Added startup profiles feature.
  • Fixed UI pages position when starting in "collapsed" window mode.
  • Improved recognition of Intel Core 2 family processors.
  • Added logos for several really old CPU models.
  • Fixed saving of battery icon display mode settings.
  • Disabled "Hide OS power status icon" checkbox on Windows Vista.
  • Added support for AMD K8 NPT revision G cores (model recognition not yet available).
  • Added default P-states tables for several AMD K8 NPT processors (rev. F and G).
  • Control routine now watches for the last requested P-state instead of current P-state (reduces management overhead on Intel CxE-capable CPUs).
  • Improved official AMD PST management logic.
  • Added new official AMD PST schemes involving 7x FID (2600+ MHz models) and full range of half FIDs (rev. G cores).
  • Added automatic selection of AMD PST schemes depending on the CPU model.
  • Added independent per-profile transition interval settings for up and down transitions.
  • Added checking for actual battery device presence in the Battery devices page.
  • RMClock modules: Fixed program crash at startup when attempting to use outdated modules.
  • RMClock PRO: Fixed update of the profiles tree on profile deletion.
  • Added option to lock chipset-based throttling settings on Intel Centrino/ViiV platforms.
  • Changed design of the UI colors settings.
  • Added automatic refresh of battery devices list on battery device insertion/removal.
  • Added refreshing of Battery device details on Refresh button in the Battery devices pages.
  • Disabled CPU selection tab in the CPU info and Monitoring pages on single-processor platforms.
  • Minor changes to the CPU performance/throttle states control logic.
  • Added requirement for clicking Apply button in the Profiles page for the profile changes to have an effect.
  • RMClock PRO: Added instant update of events/actions when changed.
  • Fixed display of Advanced CPU/chipset settings page on Intel Centrino/ViiV platforms.
  • Fixed CPU core temperature indication as "N/A" on unsupported CPU models.
  • Fixed list controls behavior on application window activation.
  • Fixed determination of Intel Celeron M 400 series (Yonah core) processors.
  • RMClock PRO: Disabled "New profile" button for non-supported CPU models.
  • RMClock PRO: Fixed process handles leak.
  • Redesigned application UI look.
  • Added UI settings page.
  • Added per-profile CPU threshold time setting.
  • Improved management of OS power profiles/settings.
  • Fixed applying of OSPM processor power policy.
  • Added option for enabling/disabling OS power settings management.
  • Added option for using Intel Core 2 PMC/ACNT as a source of CPU load level (as a registry tweak).
  • Added option for attempting forced EIST unlocking on EIST-capable CPUs (as a registry tweak).
  • Modified Intel Core2 CPU temperature indications (assumed 100 or 85 deg.C Tj(max), depending on CPU model).
  • Added option for enabling/disabling battery devices polling.
  • Added battery devices polling interval and battery charge/discharge rate averaging period settings.
  • Moved battery tray icon menu to the Battery info page.
  • Implemented independent monitoring of both AMD X2 CPU cores temperature.
  • Removed AMD K8 thermal sensor/core select settings.
  • Added AMD K8 TSC sync interval setting.
  • Added registry/shell startup option.
  • Added RMClockLauncher.exe for a more friendly launching at system startup on Windows Vista.
  • Removed automatic extraction/deletion of driver files and RMClockHLT.exe.
  • Added restart option to the main tray icon menu.
  • Fixed CPU load graph display behavior in the CPU load tray icon.
  • Fixed Performance-on-Demand animated tray icon behavior when only one P-state is used.
  • RMClock modules: implemented smarter module activation approach.
  • RMClock PRO: implemented new "Events & Actions" approach.
  • RMClock PRO: Added handling of both event activation and inactivation, with optional user-defined delay.
  • RMClock PRO: Added new event type: user input inactivity timeout.
  • RMClock PRO: Added new actions type: system standby, hibernate and shutdown.
  • RMClock PRO: Fixed inactivation of all events/actions when shutting down.
  • RMClock Updater: Improved functionailty (handling updates of
  • RMClock modules).

The new version is available here.
