ECS Intros a Series of H81 Motherboards with Durathon Support

ECS proudly introduces a series of new motherboards, based on Intel H81 Express chipset. The series consists of three models (H81H3-A3, H81H3-M7, H81H3-I) that support Socket LGA1150 platform and are ready to work with Intel Haswell processors. All three products are developed in different form-factors: standard ATX, microATX and mini-ITX. Therefore, the users have got a chance to choose which item is more appropriate for the assembling of systems with various performance requirements.

Despite the fact that the new-comers position themselves as entry-level solutions, ECS has taken care of their reliability and stability of operation. Therein, it incorporated Durathon technology, which is responsible for the products’ eligible work during a long period of time. Durathon implies the employment of a PCB with high density in order to protect the components from the detrimental effect of moisture, the replacement of standard capacitors to solid-state analogues with prolonged …

Toshiba will increase the capacity of hard drives up to 600 terabytes

Toshiba is engaged in improving the existing hard drives in order to increase their capacity. Limited to several tens of terabytes, Japanese do not want to stop — they need at least 600 terabytes in a single 3.5-inch drive. To do this, Toshiba uses all the tools and opportunities, including temporary cooperation with companies, competitors, TDK, and Showa Denko KK.

The newly formed trio of producers focuses on the development of new technologies of recording information on magnetic media and improvement of existing methods. Alliance sees great prospective in the technology of the so-called «two-dimensional magnetic recording» (TDMR). It is experimental, but using, it is quite achievable to record density of 10 terabits per square inch, which thus gives the capacity of 600 terabytes in a single hard drive.

Of course, no one talks about the chances of such a capacious storage in the foreseeable future — Toshiba and its partners will have more than one year of research …

Lian Li PC-10N: Chassis with an Extraordinary Motherboard Localization

Lian Li, a well-known manufacturer of PC cases, has officially introduced its newest chassis codenamed PC-10N. The model is designed in a popular mid-tower form-factor and is ready to accommodate motherboards of ATX, mini-ITX and micro-ATX standard. The chassis differentiates itself by an unusual motherboard localization: instead of conventional tray, the layout stipulates dedicated strips that fix the board. This was done with the aim to provide for a better airflow and to facilitate cable management process. Besides, absence of the tray makes the case much lighter.

Lian Li PC-10N is delivered in two color samples: silver (PC-10NA) and black (PC-10NB). Internal framework allows for the assembling of quite powerful PC systems. It might house rather high CPU coolers (up to 155 mm), rather lengthy expansion cards (up to 300 mm), and ATX-compatible power supply units of up to 300 mm in length. There is a possibility of removing HDD bay to free space for even more lengthy adapters …
