HighPoint Unveils the Specifications of RocketRaid 4520

Right after the announcement of HighPoint about the release of its new RAID-controllers series, the company highlighted some specifications of the upcoming model, codenamed RocketRaid 4520. This controller is based on Marvell Sheeva 88RC9580 processor with ARM core which operates at 900 MHz frequency. The model is notable for the availability of 512 Mb of DDR3 memory type. According to the words of the manufacturer, this RAID-controller is primarily targeted at server systems of average and high level.



RocketRaid 4520 is equipped with eight ports for the connection of drives with SATA and SAS interfaces, along with mini-SAS (6 Gb/sec bandwidth). It employs PCI Express 2.0 x8 interface and supports RAID0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, JBOD configurations. The availability of a dedicated port companders empowers the enlargement of hard drives number up to 128 items.

PSD520 SSD-Drives from Transcend are Already in the Market

Transcend representatives has recently announced the launch of their new product 2.5-inch PSD520 SSD-drive. According to the company’s concept, PSD520 are destined to secure high performance showings as well as prolonged reliability. Such specifications were achieved due to the implementation of flash microchips with single-layer cell memory location (SLC). Those microchips are able to sustain up to a dozen times more rewriting cycles as compared with multi-layer cell microchips.



SLC microchips have an improved system of defects recovery which enables more efficient operation of the correction system. Moreover, SLC is distinguished by the lesser correlation of defects number per rewriting cycles; such peculiarity allows the correction system to identify the problem and to execute the recovery much faster. As a result, PSD520 drive manifests promising showings in start-up time, as well as the advanced system sensitivity and high data transfer rate which approximates up to 102 …

Gigabyte Puts on Sale Motherboard GA-H61M-DS2 Model

Gigabyte has put on sale across a Japanese market its entry-level motherboard entitled GA-H61M-DS2 Rev.3. The board is developed in a micro-ATX form-factor and takes Intel H61 Express chipset as the basis. It is predestined for Socket LGA 1155 and all compatible with it CPU lines: Intel Celeron, Intel Pentium, Intel Core i3, i5, and i7. One of the most distinguishing features ascribed to this model is the employment of Ultra Durable 4 Classic components that protect all internal elements from such unfavorable impacts as humidity, voltage instability, high temperatures, and electrostatic discharge.



The other promising news is that Gigabyte offers two variations of GA-H61M-DS2 model with DVI/HDMI ports on the rear panel (GA-H61M-DS2 DVI and GA-H61M-DS2 HDMI correspondingly). The basic model does not have either of such interfaces but is still rich in various ports: a couple of PS/2, three standard audio slots, four USB 2.0 ports, one RJ-45, and a single D-Sub port.
