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 …

Release of Chassis Aresze Subverter 7650B with Efficient Cooling System

Aresze is going to release its new series of chassis developed in Mid-Tower form factor. Codenamed Subverter 7650B, these chassis are primarily intended at consumers with the heightened demands to the layout and integration but with rather 'modest' financial possibilities. Subverter 7650B series can boast an outstanding efficiency pertained to cooling down. In addition, the internal zoning and integration of this model are similar to that implemented in more costly line of products manufactured by Aresze.

Aresze took all efforts to achieve the maximal results applied to the efficient cooling down. Thus, the framework zoning for the airflow distribution has been designed according to the company's own technology. The bay designated for graphics cards, which can support the cards of up to 300 mm in length, can be applied for the wide range of solutions. The 120 mm fan is located at the top part of the chassis and serve the blowing out means; this way the hot airflow does not …

New details about the video card Colorful iGame GTX 680

In June, at Computex 2012 exhibition Chinese manufacturer of Colorful graphics cards announced its plans to release GeForce GTX 680 model with a passive cooling system.

Meanwhile, the upcoming release collects more and more of new details. According to the manufacture, graphic card is equipped with a reinforced VRM and dual memory — 4 GB of GDDR5. The power connectors PCI-E Power 8-pin made are located on the back of the PCB.

There are only three video outputs, as opposed to the reference, but all of full-size — DVI-I, HDMI and DisplayPort. The exact code name of the model looks like following «GK104HA-D32». Information on the frequencies is unknown so far. The presence of mini-PCIe slot for connecting the mains board PowerKit is generally an indirect sign of a factory overclock and overclocking orientation of …
