Meet Three New Motherboards for Workstations and Servers from Gigabyte

Gigabyte, a global manufacturer of versatile PC hardware components, regularly updates its desktop motherboards product line, providing its customers with the most advanced facilities and performance. Still, the company is actively developing also a series of motherboards intended for the implementation into workstations and server systems.

Hence, Gigabyte has recently introduced three new models to replenish this series: GA-6PXSV4, GA-7PESH3, and GA-7PESH4. The users are able to create a really efficient system with the help of those boards in order to realize different computing activities due to GPU, CAD/CAE visualization or physical processors simulation.

All three motherboards are compatible with Intel Xeon E5-1600/2600 CPUs for Socket LGA2011 and take Intel C602 chipset as the basis. The first model from Gigabyte, GA-6PXSV4, features five expansion slots, including two PCIe 3.0 x16, one PCIe 3.0 x8, one PCIe 2.0 x1, and one more PCI. It supports up to 256GB of …

Universal CPU Cooler Zalman CNPS9900DF Review

Zalman keeps on developing high-end cooling systems with a radial arrangement of plates. Its latest product, CPU cooler CNPS9900DF, is considered to be universal in terms of compatibility and implemented facilities. Still, some IT experts view this model as a modification of previously launched Zalman CNPS9900 MAX, although with two fans. In spite of visual resemblance, the company tried to design a truly uncommon cooler, with remarkable specifications and reliability.

Framework Peculiarities

Zalman CNPS9900DF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It's not a traditional vertical tower, as long as heatsink ribs feature fan-like location relative to the central axis of symmetry. Such approach provides for a comprehensive heat dissipation over all key motherboard components due to absence of frames on fans. Heat pipes embrace the cooling plates in a circle, then bend at 90 degrees, piercing the base. At first sight it seems that the framework involves six heat pipes, but …

Two New SSD Series for Corporate Clients from Samsung

Samsung has recently announced the release of two new SSD series, intended basically for the employment in corporate segment (for servers and large data storages). The first series, codenamed SM843, will be represented by models of 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacity; the second series, codenamed SM1625, will contain models of 100GB, 200GB, 400GB, and 800GB capacity.

All the models within the series are based on MLC NAND flash-memory, developed under 20 nm technological process. This allowed the company to increase the writing speed index and SSDs durability three times as much, if compared with rival drives and items of the previous generation.

SM843 solid-state drives are designed in 2.5-inch form-factor. They are notable by 28% lower power consumption in active mode and 80% lower retention time. The models employ SATA 3.0 interface and demonstrate the following speed showings: consecutive Read speed achieves the point of 520 Mb/sec, consecutive Write speed equals to 420 …
