HPE Presented the Second Pilot Model of The Machine PC

In 2016, Hewlett Packard Enterprise revealed its first prototype of The Machine PC, utilizing the DRAM memory. Moreover, lately the company has presented the second pilot model. HPE показала второй прототип. The concept itself is called the Memory-Driven Computing, however, those are the developed ideas, involved into The Machine project.



The prototype supposes the presence of 160 TB memory, divided into 40 physical nodes, parsed together with the help of the high-end protocol. In addition, there are optical and optoelectronic connections. The whole system is operated by the optimized Linux based OS running on Cavium ThunderX2.


Taking into account the result obtained, HPE expects, that the architecture will be easily scalable up to 4.096 yottabytes! Thus, it will be able to handle incredible data arrays.


Unfortunately, it is anything but clear, when real Memory-Driven Computing devices will hit the market. However in 2018 or 2019 HPE is going to …

Evga Teases GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ Graphics Card

Evga, one of the leaders in the US market of enthusiast graphics solutions, bedazzled its fans with another videocard, based on GeForce GTX 980 Ti GPU. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ features 150.88x279.4 mm + dual-slot width dimensions. For a better efficiency, it requires a rather mighty PSU (not less than 600 W); the connection to the power supply is organized via two 8-pin PCI Express connectors.



Evga GTX 980 Ti Classified ACX 2.0+ is differentiated by an enforced power supply subsystem that consists of 14+3 phases. The list of other peculiarities includes the availability of dual VGA BIOS chips and the integration of an advanced ACX 2.0+ cooler. It boasts a copper nickel-plated base, a pair of independent heatsink sections (63 + 54 aluminum fins), four 8 mm heatpipes, one 6 mm heatpipe, and a couple of fans. According to the manufacturers, this cooler is by 26% more efficient and by 36% quieter than the etalon model.


The heart of the videocard is the …

Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.



Layout and Connectivity


In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).


The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …
