Fractal Design has announced Define R4 hull

In nearly two years after the announcement of the hull Define R3, Fractal Design Company announced the release of its ideological successor. New, executed in the same minimalist style, has received the designation Define R4.

The hull is designed to install motherboard sizes ATX, Micro ATX and Mini ATX, and eight expansion cards. Define R4 design provides for two external 5.25-inch bay size, as well as ten internal, eight — to set the size 3.5-inch HDD, two — for the installation of SSD size 2.5 inches.

As the creators say, inside Define R4 can be used CPU coolers up to 170 cm, power supplies up to 270 cm, and graphics up to 295 or 430 mm (respectively, with basket for the HDD, and without it). As for the cooling system, it involves the installation of up to seven fans: two front, one rear, two top, one bottom and one side. The package includes two fans Silent Series R2, front and rear. Both are characterized by a diameter of 140 mm and speed 1000 r / min. Interestingly, …

King’s on the Footprint: Nvidia Boasts Titan X Adapter

The much-anticipated release of Nvidia’s GeForce GTX Titan X graphics adapter has already come true. The new-comer employs the latest flagship GM200 GPU (Nvidia Maxwell architecture) that comprises 8 billion transistors, 24 SMM blocks (each includes 128 CUDA cores and 8 TMUs). As a result, the GPU consists of 3072 CUDA cores and 192 TMUs – a record-breaking layout. The amount of ROPs makes up 96.

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X runs at 1000 MHz nominal frequency but might be overclocked to 1075 MHz frequency. Memory subsystem is compiled of 12 GB of GDDR5 modules which operate at 7010 MHz frequency. The bandwidth index of 384-bit bus approximates 336.5 Gb/sec. Consequently, an overall computation power is estimated at 7.0 TFLOPS.

Cooling is organized with the assistance of a two-slot cooler with a single fan. Connectivity facilities include three video ports: DisplayPort, DVI-I and HDMI. On active mode, the maximum allowed GPU temperature should not exceed 92 C. The utmost …

Crucial Showcases Voluminous MX300 Solid-State Drives

Crucial is about to launch a new series of voluminous SSDs, entitled MX300. The lineup consists of 2.5-inch models with thin cases (7 mm only), targeting as desktop so mobile platforms. Additionally, the delivery set offers a dedicated 2.5-inch frame for the installation into a 9.5-inch bay. The capacity of drives makes up 275 GB, 525 GB, 750 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB.

SSDs Crucial MX300 is developed on 32-layer Micron 3D NAND TLC chips (48 GB) as well as Marvell 88SS1074 controller. Data transfer process is realized via SATA III (6 Gb/sec) interface. The maximal sequential Read/Write speed equals to 530 MB/sec/510 MB/sec. In its turn, the maximal random data transfer index approximates 83.000/92.000 IOPS (Read/Write).

The greenhorns are thought to support the following technologies: AES, ECC, T.R.I.M., Data Path Protection, S.M.A.R.T., Active Garbage Collection, Power Loss Prevention, and Extreme Energy Efficiency. Besides, Dynamic Write Acceleration identifies and writes the …
