Synology Announces a New DiskStation DS214 NAS

Synology Inc., a well-known Taiwanese manufacturer of high-end network solutions, announces the release of a two-disk NAS, entitled DiskStation DS214. The storage is targeting budget-oriented home and small business customers who long for high performance and stability of system operation. This NAS comes with two 3.5-inch drives, each featuring 4 TB capacity. Herein, the drives are mounted without any tools, by means of rubber shims only.

The DiskStation DS214 is differentiated by a quite low power consumption index. The storage consumes not more than 20W on full load conditions, with the minimal index of 3.65W in sleep mode. This NAS model is based on a two-core processor, running at 1.06 GHz. Its layout also embraces 512 MB of DDR3 memory, gigabit Ethernet port, and a twain of USB ports (3.0 version). Moreover, the case is equipped with a set of LEDs for drives, network, and NAS activity.

To proceed with the specifications, the new-comer boasts some 111 Mb/sec Read speed …

Meet Three New Motherboards for Workstations and Servers from Gigabyte

Gigabyte, a global manufacturer of versatile PC hardware components, regularly updates its desktop motherboards product line, providing its customers with the most advanced facilities and performance. Still, the company is actively developing also a series of motherboards intended for the implementation into workstations and server systems.

Hence, Gigabyte has recently introduced three new models to replenish this series: GA-6PXSV4, GA-7PESH3, and GA-7PESH4. The users are able to create a really efficient system with the help of those boards in order to realize different computing activities due to GPU, CAD/CAE visualization or physical processors simulation.

All three motherboards are compatible with Intel Xeon E5-1600/2600 CPUs for Socket LGA2011 and take Intel C602 chipset as the basis. The first model from Gigabyte, GA-6PXSV4, features five expansion slots, including two PCIe 3.0 x16, one PCIe 3.0 x8, one PCIe 2.0 x1, and one more PCI. It supports up to 256GB of …

Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …
