Gigabyte GA-Z77MX-D3H: plus two ports Thunderbolt, plus 40 euros

Gigabyte has released the first motherboard form factor microATX, equipped with two ports Thunderbolt — GA-Z77MX-D3H TH. Taking into account the availability of the precursor (Z77MX-D3H), it’s interesting to compare the design and price of these models. First, about the cost of the product. The novelty is estimated at € 150, and its «little sister» — at € 108,50. If to subtract 10 euros from each of two amounts, there will be the minimum for which the cards will be available soon.

What causes the difference in more than 40 euros? In general, the presence of two ports Intel Thunderbolt 10 Gb / s, which are implemented by the controller Intel DSL3510L. A high-speed connection can simultaneously serve several drives and a monitor. Minor changes were made to the design of the CPU power supply subsystem, which, nevertheless, remained a 6-channel. One of the long PCI Express slots was replaced by the second PCI-E 2.0 x1.

Patriot Memory Introduces External Wireless HDD

Patriot Memory, a leading American supplier of solid-state drives and memory modules, introduces a new external wireless HDD. Codenamed Gauntlet 320, the drive features 139x86x24 mm dimensions and offers 320 GB capacity. The possibility of connection to this HDD up to eight devices is supposed to be the basic privilege of this model. Besides, the data might be streamed to five devices simultaneously. This is an outstanding showing comparing to analogous solutions.

Gauntlet 320 is furnished with an onboard lithium-ion charger that is able to work in autonomous mode up to five and a half hours in succession. Network opportunities are introduced by an integrated Wi-Fi adapter of 802.11 b/g/n standard; this adapter is able to support WEP, WPA-PSK and WPA2-PSK security systems. High data transfer speed is ensured by the implementation of two USB 3.0 ports which are backwards compatible with USB 2.0 interface. It provides for unimpeded music, video and image streaming facilities with …

Welcome In New LPDDR4 Memory Chips from Samsung

Samsung settles down to a large-scale production of LPDDR4 mobile memory chips. Elaborated according to 20 nm technological norms, the new-comers boast the integration of an advanced technology that ensures 8 Gb crystal density and twice the performance compared with LPDDR3 chips. Currently, the company produces models of 2 GB and 3 GB capacity, however in early 2015 it will set to the development of 4 GB solutions.

New LPDDR4 memory modules are targeting various mobile devices with thirst for lightning-fast data transfer speed. The latter index might accelerate up to 3200 Mb/sec; this will allow employing chips for the implementation of resource-intensive tasks, such as recording and playback of high-resolution video or serial filming.

Samsung developers claim that 2 GB LPDDR4 DRAM is 40% more power-efficient than counterparts with 4 Gb crystal density. This became possible due to the adopting of low-voltage swing-terminated logic for I/O signaling. As a result, the …
