HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.



HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.


The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

PC Cases Enermax iVektor to Be Launched in Late August

Enermax is going to release its new iVektor series of PC cases already in late August.

Retail sales of AMD A10-5800K and the other APU of new series will start only in three months, either simultaneously or nearly simultaneously with the release of high-end 8-core processors FX-83xx/Piledriver.



Experts say that in preparing procedure of desktop models Trinity, which must operate at frequencies up to 3.8 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo), AMD engineers faced with a small amount of chip slots. In this regard, there will be changes in the production process and the design of crystals Vishera. In addition to this, warehouses of Advanced Micro Devices and its partners are filled with surplus APU Llano, which are needed to be implemented in the coming months in any case.


The delay of Trinity will affect the timing removal of the old processors AM3 from the sale. These processors are still up 30% of the …
