Toshiba to Release Entry-Level A100 Solid-State Drive

Toshiba is about to release a 2.5-inch SSD, entitled A100. The entry-level model is based on TLC NAND flash memory chips (15 nm) with the cooperation of SLC cache memory. Traditionally, the drive employs SATA 6 Gb/sec interface and takes Toshiba TC58NC1010 chip as a controller.



The greenhorn is available in two versions: 120 GB and 140 GB (dimensions: 100x69.85x7 mm). The couple is an optimal choice for home & office PCs, thanks to the incorporation of power-efficient, high-performance and shock-proof technologies. The drives’ maximal data transfer speed on sequential operations makes up 550 MB/sec & 480 MB/sec (read/write). The maximal data transfer speed on random operations (4K) achieves 87.000 IOPS & 82.000 IOPS correspondingly.


Toshiba A100 solid-state drives are known to support NCQ, TRIM and S.M.A.R.T. technologies. An estimated MTBF index equals to 1.5 million hours. The 120 GB item might endure 30 TB of written information, while the 240 GB item allows for 60 TB …

The Galatico Chassis by Akasa Resembles a Big CPU Cooler

Akasa, the taiwan manufacturer of compact PC cases and reasonably priced cooling systems, has unveiled its plans to release a modern Galatico chassis for Intel NUC systems, compatible with the compact Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK computer.



This product is remarkable for aluminium lips on each side, which act as a heatsink for the processing unit. Four copper heat pipes transfer heat from the 45 W Intel Core i7-6770HQ (4 cores/8 threads, 2.6/3.5 GHz, Iris Pro Graphics 580) CPU to the framework. All case components are produced with the use of aluminium, so Galatico can be called a huge CPU cooler. Inner structure offers a seat for a 2.5-inch drive. The dimensions of the specialty are 383 х 213 х 93 mm.


The front and back interface ports sets correspond to Intel NUC mini PC slots, excluding the card reader slot.


Unfortunately, the exact price and retail starting date are unknown, but, presumably, Akasa Galatico will cost $300–400.

Presentation of a Professional Graphics Card AMD FirePro W9000

Within the bounds of AMD Fusion Developer Summit, Advanced Micro Devices has presented its new graphics card AMD FirePro W9000. The new graphic solution is based on a couple of 28-nm Tahiti chips and is actually a prototype of Radeon HD 7900 adapter. FirePro W9000 is chiefly targeted at professionals used to work with 3D technologies and video editing applications.



AMD FirePro W9000 is based on a red circuit board developed to work with PCI Express 3.0x16 bus. The cooling system is represented by a solid cooler of active type, a high-end radiator, three 90 mm. noiseless fans and copper heat tubes. The organization of additional power presupposes the availability of two dedicated eight-contact slots.


The new professional graphics card is furnished with GDDR5 memory in 6 GB volume capacity and 384 bit interface. Six DisplayPort slots are called to connect the card with displays. GPU lock frequency equals to 1 GHz which allows the card to ensure the performance in the …
