Adata Boasts Three New Premier Pro Solid-State Drives

The product line of SSDs from Adata has been replenished with three high-performance models. The SP910, SP900 M.2 2242 and SP900 M.2 2280 enter the award-winning Premier Pro series and might be implemented within various market segments (desktop, laptop or ultrabook solutions). In keeping with the manufacturer, the triple is thought to marvel the customers by super-high speeds, reliability, and instant response.

Adata Premier Pro SP910 is developed in 2.5-inch form-factor, featuring MLC NAND flash memory chips and Marvell 88SS9187 controller. The model employs SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and offers 128 GB or 1TB storage area. Moreover, it supports a variety of useful tools, including S.M.A.R.T., ECC, etc.

This SSD is differentiated by some striking speed characteristics. Thus, its ultimate sequential Read/Write speed equals to 560/460 MB/sec, whereas the ultimate random Read/Write speed (4 K) makes up 91.000/77.000 IOPS. The new-comer is delivered along with a 3.5-inch …

ASRock Unveils Z170M OC Formula Mainboard

ASRock came into the market with a new small-sized overclocking-oriented mainboard. Entitled Z170M OC Formula, the model is designed in micro-ATX form-factor on the basis of Intel Z170 chipset. The latter is ready to cooperate with Intel Skylake CPUs for Socket LGA1151. The PCB offers a pair of DIMM slots for DDR4-4500 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB capacity).

ASRock Z170M OC Formula accommodates three PCIe 3.0 x16 expansion slots, enabling the creation of various graphics configurations (including Nvidia SLI & AMD CrossFireX). Storage subsystem is introduced by a pair of SATA Express ports (10 Gb/sec) as well as four SATA ports (6 Gb/sec) and one Ultra M.2 slot (32 Gb/sec).

This motherboard boasts a high-quality audio subsystem; it is based on Realtek ALC1150 controller, generating 7.1-channel sounding (Purity Sound 3). The 10-layer PCB comes with an integrated 14-phase power subsystem with dual-stack MOSFETs, premium choke coils, and solid-state capacitors Nichicon 12K Platinum. …

Promising Speed Forecasts for AMD Radeon 8000 Sea Islands

AMD is continuing its work on the new GPU generation codenamed ‘Sea Islands’. The new series is prognosticated to be released in the coming winter. All the products with this GPU will be branded Radeon 8000. AMD manufacturers claim that their new graphic processing units will be 40% more efficient due to the implemented advanced technologies. There is not so much news about the future GPU architecture, although cardinal changes are barely possible.

Sea Islands chips will be equipped with 5.1 billion transistors as compared with the current 4.3 billion items applied in the products. This augmentation will facilitate the increment of efficiency. The chips will be developed according to the already tried-and-proven 28 nm technological requirements. The increase of transistors is not as large due to the adherence to the ascribed norms. It should be underlined that the implementation of the old technologies does not imply the considerable warming up of the chips; the developments …
