Abee Unveils a Pair of High-End Small-Sized PC Chassis

Abee, a company that earned popularity thanks to its high-end and unusual in design PC cases, is going to launch a pair of new top chassis, codenamed ACubic CP330 and Acubic CP730. Both models are distinguished by small-sized dimensions and by a truly high price. In this respect, Abee is going to beat Lian Li that is known for its rather costly casing solutions.



The developer houses its two new products in aluminum cases that are peculiar for their original design, with the combination of black and silver tints on the frontal panel to somehow resemble a chessboard. As it was mentioned above, pricewise, the models are an expensive solution targeting customers with specific requirements. Thus, ACubic CP330 cost approximately $330, while its companion, ACubic CP730, rises up to $365.


Abee ACubic CP330 features 229x249x229 mm dimensions and is intended to accommodate motherboards of mini-ITX form-factor. Its interface panel consists of two standard 3.5 mm audio slots and a …

IEI Releases Small-Type Motherboards Kino-CVR-D25502/N26002

IEI has replenished its line of products with a motherboard series intended for application in small-type home PCs due to the implemented mini-ITX form-factor. All previous products of this manufacturer were basically oriented on the enterprise sector, however IEI decided to widen its facilities by developing quite new motherboards for home use. The series is represented by two models: Kino-CVR-D25502 and N26002 which have got a lot of common, as well as, different parameters.



In fact, the major distinctions between the two models can be dwindled down to the implemented processors. Kino-CVR—D2550 employs two-core Intel Atom processor D2550, while N26002 model is equipped with Intel Atom 2600. The difference is seen also in clock frequencies and RAM volume capacities. D2550 is able to achieve 1.86 GHz and is notable for 4 GB RAM capacity; N2600 achieves 1.6 GHz and characterizes by only 2 GB RAM capacity.


IEI Kino-CVR motherboards employ Intel ICH10R southern bridge. RAM …

Seagate Launches the 5th Generation FireCuda SSHD

Seagate has expanded its lineup of hybrid drives with the 5th-generation FireCuda SSHD. The greenhorns are based on shingled magnetic recording technology (SMR), rather than perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR). The SMR enables the partial superposition of data tracks; it ensures the ultimate record density. The models are backed by a 5-year’s limited warranty.



Seagate FireCuda series is introduced by 5 models, developed in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch formats. Their capacity varies from 500 GB to 2 TB. The drives employ MLC flash memory (8 GB) as well as SATA 6 Gb/sec external interface. The spindle rotates at 5400 RPM.


The average data read speed makes up 140 MB/sec with 2.5-inch models & 156 MB/sec with 3.5-inch items. The latter offer also up to 190 MB/sec of the average read speed from flash memory; besides, it takes only 8.5-9.5 ms for the chips to search for the needed data on Read/Write operations. To add, the new FireCuda is thought to consume between 1.7-6.7 W power.
