WD Prepares Voluminous Re+ HDDs for Data Centers

Western Digital announces a new high-capacity 3.5-inch HDD for data centers. The WD Re+ will be available in versions of up to 6 TB. All of them are designed with power-saving ideas in mind; hence, their maximal power consumption index does not go above 6 W. The new-comer employs five-platter architecture and SATA 6 Gb/sec interface that guarantees the maximal efficiency level. Moreover, its MTBF index approximates 1.2 million hours on average workload index of 550 TB per year.



The WD Re+ is distinguished by the following advantages:

— the incorporation of dual actuator positioning system that improves the drive’s working efficiency;

— the implementation of RAFF technology that monitors HDD parameters in real time and compensates for the linear and angular vibration;

— the employment of StableTrac technology that reduces vibrations and stabilizes drive platters;

— the usage of TLER technology that prevents latencies or an abrupt destruction of RAID … …

MSI Is Launching Its New Gaming PCs Line Starting With the Infinite A Model

The MSI Company decided to open its new gaming desktops series with the Infinite A Model, which main highlight is a front panel. It possesses several facets, one of which resembles a PC-board layout with multi-coloured track lighting, customizable via the MSI Mystic Light software.



The side panel out of tempered glass reveals a vertically mounted graphics accelerator (presumably, a riser card is used). In MSI Infinite A the manufacturer utilized either Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 or GTX 1070 Gaming family video adaptors.


The 14 nm Intel Core i7-7700 processor operates with the micro-ATX Intel B250 logic set motherboard, supplied with four computing cores, functioning at 3.6 GHz clock speed. The system card has PCI-e slots, reinforced mount and CPU power system with durable components. The MSI novelty offers 4 DDR4 slots and allows installing up to 64 GB of RAM. The case can also hold two 3.5-inch and three 2.5-inch drives for data storage.

Welcome in MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition Video Card

MSI has finally gladdened its gaming fans with a new ‘golden’ graphics card, entitled GTX 970 Gaming 4G Golden Edition. The model is based on Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell architecture) with 1644 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 13 SMM units. Connection with visual devices might be realized via dual DVI ports, a single HDMI, and one DisplayPort.



Thanks to the support of MSI Gaming App, users are free to select one of the working modes: Silent, Gaming or OC. Each of them is differentiated by nominal and dynamic clock frequencies, Hereby, in Silent mode this adapter runs at 1051 MHz/1178 MHz (nominal/dynamic); Gaming mode provides for 1140 MHz/1279 MHz frequency, while OC allows increasing both indices up to 1165 MHz/1317 MHz correspondingly.


The integrated GPU cooperates with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface, 224 Gb/sec throughput index). Its nominal clock frequency makes up 1751 MHZ, but its efficient index rises up to 7010 MHz.
