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 …

Sapphire Showcases Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic Solution

Sapphire Technology Ltd. is going to release a new graphics card on Tahiti LE chip. Codenamed Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic, the card is one of the first models to use the newest GPU, developed under 28 nm technological process. The suffix 'GHz Edition' in the model's name witnesses that the nominal GPU clock frequency exceeds the index of 1 GHz.



The core of Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition Toxic is based on Graphics Core Next architecture and contains 1536 current processors. The card's inventory involves 2GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit bus interface. The memory modules are known to operate at 6000 MHz frequency. GPU operational frequencies are still not clarified, but it's possible to assume that on activation of AMD PowerTune option the card will demonstrate some outstanding performance. In fact, analysts dare saying that this model is the most efficient one among all other solutions based on Tahiti LE chip.


Optimal thermal regime and airflow activity are …

Galaxy Microsystems Releases Two New Graphics Cards, Based on NVIDIA Pascal – KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White and GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper White

The two novelties by Galaxy Microsystems – GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White and GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper White – are highlighted not only due to their white colouring, but also due to their non-reference cooler and PC-board design, to the factory overclocking and to the LED-backlighting of fans and the aluminium back plate.



These specialties are equipped with a two-slot cooler possessing several copper nickel-plated heat pipes. There are two memory chip life wires and an 8-pin and a 6-pin PCI-E Power connectors.

The main cooling system contains an aluminium heat dissipator for VRM transistors and a pair of 100 mm fans.


Based on the GP104-400 chip, the top-of-the-line model operates 2,560 streaming processors, 160 TMUs, 64 rendering blocks and 256-bit line, which works together with the 8 GB GDDR5X RAM. The KFA2 GeForce GTX 1080 EXOC Sniper White frequency formula looks like 1,657–1,797/1,250(10,000) MHz for the core and memory respectively.


The graphics cards …
