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 …

Asus Announces ROG Poseidon GTX 780 Adapter with DirectCU H2O

Asus has officially introduced a new add-on to the GTX 780 graphics cards series – the ROG Poseidon GTX 780 (codename: Poseidon-GTX780-P-3GD5). The new-comer is initially differentiated by the incorporation of a hybrid DirectCU H2O cooling system, as well as of prime-quality components. The heart of the model is Nvidia GK110 GPU with 2304 CUDA cores. It operates at 1006 MHz. the GPU is accompanied by 3 GB of GDDR5 memory (384-bit bus), running at 1502 MHz (6008 MHz – efficient).



Asus ROG Poseidon GTX 780 employs a qualitative printed circuit board that boasts 10-phase Digi+ VRM digital power subsystem. Reliability of operation is ascribed to Black metallic solid-state capacitors, ferrite chokes with Super Alloy Power support, and classy transistors. They take care of the card’s lifespan, which, according to some reports, is five times longer than rival models feature.


To continue, hybrid DirectCU H2O combines a traditional air cooler along with liquid cooling. The …

Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …
