According to Kingston, the new entries are supposed to substitute the two preceding SSD lines: Kingston KC100 and Kingston V+200.

SSDs KC300 are designed in 2.5-inch form-factor and feature SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface. LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller is the heart of each drive model. All items included in the series support DuraClass, DuraWrite, S.M.A.R.T. and RAISE technologies that substantially enhance their efficiency. The same way, all the drives are able to complete an automatic data encoding by means of two integrated encoding engines, which work with AES-128 and AES-256 algorithms. …

Intel Unveils Power-Saving Silvermont Architecture

Intel has just unveiled its new advanced working out: power-saving and high-efficient microarchitecture codenamed Silvermont. According to Intel, this architecture is primarily targeting devices with low power consumption and can embrace a vast production segment, starting from smartphones and finishing with datacenters. Silvermont is ready to demonstrate a threefold increase of performance and fivefold decrease of power consumption (with preservation of erstwhile efficiency), if compared with the current generation of Intel Atom cores.

Intel Silvermont has been elaborated in compliance with the norms of 22 nm technological process with the implementation of 3-D Tri-Gate transistors. The employment of new progressive techniques promotes for enhancing the operation speed and reducing energy demand of products which use Silvermont as the basis. Multi-core architecture with the support of up to eight cores ensures higher bandwidth, lower latency and more efficient operation on …

Greeting a Flagship L337 Gaming Z97-Machine Motherboard from ECS

ECS has announced the release of its flagship motherboard based on Intel Z97 chipset – the L337 Gaming Z97-Machine. The model is thought to be used for the creation of some powerful gaming configurations. It employs Socket LGA1150 platform that supports 4th and 5th generation of Intel Core/Pentium/Celeron CPUs. Featuring ATX form-factor (305x220 mm), the board might become an ideal complement to the high-end PC system.

ECS L337 Gaming Z97-Machine houses four DIMM slots for DDR3 memory modules; the maximal capacity of memory might not exceed 32 GB, whereas the maximal clock frequencies might approach 3000 MHz. Storage subsystem offers 4x SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports for the connection of standard drives (support for RAID 0/1/5/10 configurations), 1x M.2 NGFF port for the connection of solid-state drives of diverse length. Expansion facilities involve 2x PCI-e 3.0 x16 connectors and 3x PCI-e 2.0 x16 connectors.
