Today we are looking at two new Solid State Drives from Visiontek, a company primarily known as one of AMD’s partners in America.

Visiontek might not be that well known in Europe, but in America they are a highly regarded AMD discrete graphics card partner. In recent years they have expanded their product portfolio and they now stock memory, power supplies, solid state drives and various peripherals.
