DAS Promise Pegasus R4 Review

Data storage units have become an integral part of PC hardware in recent years. Such conjuncture is simply explained by the rising necessity to store huge amounts of information and transfer the data to various devices. NAS and DAS units have been developed with the intention to solve all storage problems, however, the efficiency of their work is much dependent on the interfaces they use for data transfer. USB 2.0 interfaces are unable to cope with voluminous info; the prevalent now USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces are efficient only for a single winchester. But when it comes to the management of really huge data blocks, there appears a need for a more advanced solution. Promise Technology dares to solve all vital issues by releasing DAS Pegasus R4 with Thunderbolt interface which is notable for the high and stable data transfer speed with the retention of compatibility.

AMD Outs the World’s First Server FirePro S9300 x2 GPU

AMD has proudly announced the release of the world’s first server-grade graphics accelerator. Entitled FirePro S9300 x2, this GPU is called to facilitate in solving complex computing tasks and take graphics to the next level. The card is linked to the power unit by means of two 8-pin connectors, consuming up to 300 W power at most.



The heart of AMD FirePro S9300 x2 is a bundle of two AMD Fiji GPUs (GCN architecture). They feature a pair of 4096 stream processors and run at 850 MHz frequency. Each GPU employs 4 GB of HBM memory that operates at 1000 MHz clock frequency and offers 512 Gb/sec bandwidth.


The integration of two processing aggregates allows the accelerator to achieve some amazing 13.9 TFLOPS of computing power. As a result, the model exceeds in performance its nearest competitors: Nvidia Tesla K80 with 5.6 TFLOPS as well as Nvidia Tesla M60 with 7.4 TFLOPS.


The support for AMD GPUOpen stack is supposed to be the card’s key advantage. This stack enables …
