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 …

Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC is Available for Preorder

Sapphire is about to launch the first modification of AMD’s graphics adapter – the Radeon RX 480. The new-comer, entitled Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC, is already available for preorder at the price tag of $322. The PCB, as well as the integrated cooling system, employs a modified design. The ‘OC’ postfix implies that the card has been overclocked to provide for a better performance.



Sapphire Radeon RX 480 Nitro OC comes equipped with AMD Polaris 10 GPU (14 nm, FinFet, GCN). It features 2304 stream processors, 32 ROPs & 144 TMUs. The presumptive GPU clock frequency might achieve 1350 MHz. At the same time, memory subsystem hasn’t been modified: 8 GB of GDDR5 are supposed to run at 2.0/8.0 GHz (base/dynamic) frequency.


The 2-slot cooling system employs a few heatpipes, a large aluminum heatsink, a stiffening plate at the reverse side, and a couple of 100-mm fans. The latter are able to operate in passive mode when GPU temperature is low. Moreover, the model boasts the …

Zalman ZM-GVM Introduces ZM-GVM Bronze PSUs

Zalman adds another series of power supply units to its portfolio. The ZM-GVM series is represented so far by three semi-modular units of 500 W, 600 W and 700 W capacity. They correspond to ATX12V 2.31 standard and boast 80Plus Bronze certificate since their efficiency achieves 88%. The new-comers are able to operate in a wide range of input voltages (115-230 V), featuring only a single +12V rail.



Zalman ZM-GVM units employ dual forward converter as the basis. Semi-modular design presupposes permanent fixture of the main cables and demountable construction of optional cables. Efficient cooling is the task for a low-noise 120-mm fan, whereas sustainability of the units is entrusted to the advanced protection system.


Zalman ZM500-GVM PSU accommodates 1x 24-pin connector, 4+4-in ATX 12V, 3x MOLEX, 5x SATA, 1x FDD, and 2x 6+2-pin PCI Express connectors. The ZM600-GVM offers 4x MOLEX and 6x SATA connectors in addition to the base ones. The senior ZM700-GVM houses 4x MOLEX …
