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 …

Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.

Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

In accordance with the …

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan: Breakthrough in Graphics World

The speed at which brand products based on recently released GeForce GTX Titan adapter strike the market, makes all Internet users, enthusiasts and IT professionals marvel. This fact is explained by some outstanding characteristics of Nvidia’s creation that offer unmatched and unseen earlier performance. Due to the integration of the most powerful GPU, this adapter brings gaming experience to a new level, creating a real breakthrough in graphics industry.

What Makes ‘Titan’ So Special?

Graphics adapter Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan is equipped with a powerful GK110 GPU. It consists of fifteen SMX current multiprocessors, each of which employs 64 CUDA FP64 cores. This allows the adapter to achieve 4.5 TFLOPS speed in computing operations with a single precision and up to 1.5 TFLOPS speed in computing with a dual precision. Still, this adapter takes high-end performance in gaming environment as a prior task. The minimal operational clock frequency is established at 836 MHz, …
