Meet New Frameless U2717D Monitor from Dell

Taking into account an ascending popularity of WQHD displays, Dell decided to expand its portfolio by a new high-resolution monitor – the UltraSharp U2717D. The model is based on 27-inch IPS panel with the top brightness index (350 cd/m2). It is also notable for the widest viewing angles (178/178 degrees) and a relatively fast response time (6 ms). Pricing has not been announced yet.

Dell UltraSharp U2717D features 2560x1440 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 1000:1 contrast index. It promises the coverage of 99% RGB environment as well as the highest color rendering (DeltaE <2).

The other attraction of the monitor is nearly frameless design: the display is edged by an ultra-thin frame, replenished by a multifunction stand. The latter promotes for the adjustment of height, angle of slope, and aspect positioning (swivel & pivot).

Meet the First RAID Controller with Sixteen SATA 6 Gb/sec Ports

Adaptec by PMC introduces the first in the market RAID controller series with the outstanding amount of SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports. Adaptec Series 7 combines low-profile expansion cards developed particularly for PCI Express 3.0 bus. The integrated properties are called to enhance the bandwidth of the bus due to the availability of sixteen SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports.

According to the claimed specifications, these RAID controllers are capable to demonstrate up to 450000 IOPS performance (on random writing (4 KB) conditions) when the number of connected SSDs equals to 16. Such performance showings are currently insuperable by a number of contemporary RAID controllers.

Adaptec Series 7 includes eight models which are differentiated by an amount of external and internal ports. All the models are low-profile expansion cards which are equipped with up to 24 ports. Such technological innovation became possible thanks to the implementation of compact HD mini-SAS sockets and …
