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 …

Lian Li PC-V650 - aluminum chassis for a PC with a side mounted power supply

The company Lian Li announced the launch of a new computer case — PC-V650. New made is entirely made of aluminum and is designed to fit motherboard ATX and Micro-ATX, but because of non-standard side location of the power supply, it is lower than most peers.

Power supply (maximum length is limited to 230 mm) is mounted in the lower right side of the case — exactly opposite of expansion cards. In terms of composition and temperature regime the model is controversial, but it allows reducing the height. On the other hand, the case has turned out quite wide. In general, new dimensions can be expressed by the formula 427 x 251 x 360 mm, provided with seven slots for expansion cards.

Lian Li PC-V650 allows setting a standard size 5.25 ODD and eleven drives: seven 3.5-inch and four 2.5 inch. Bottom basket for hard drive is made removable: if to take it out, there is the possibility to use graphic card up to 370 mm. Regarding the maximum height of CPU cooler, it is 120 mm.
