Promise Increases Volume Capacity of External Drive Pegasus R6

Promise Technology, a global provider of storage solutions, has renewed its Pegasus R6 external drive with Thunderbolt interface adding more volume. The changes were made in the capacity of the drive which was augmented to 18 TB, following the previous models with 12TB. Such augmentation became possible due to the support of 3TB drives. According to the Promise, the renewed device will be of benefit to those consumers who work with video editing and huge files.

Pegasus R6 is characterized by high performance that will be sufficient for the management of several streams of uncompressed video. Thus, this external drive is able to develop the speed of data transfer up to 900 Mb/sec. Such showings prove that Thunderbolt interface surpasses all other up-dated interfaces (USB 3.0, FireWire, etc.) in speed terms.

To continue, the launch of a model with 18 TB volume capacity resulted in the price cuts for the models with 12 TB capacities. Under the latest data voiced by the …

HIS Showcases New Graphics Card with Improved UVD GPU

The line of graphics cards manufactured by HIS has been recently replenished by an alternative Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock model. The card takes a modified graphics adapter from AMD and is based on Tahiti PRO chip, developed according to 28 nm technological process. This chip houses 1792 current processors which are designed under an advanced Graphics Core Next architecture.

One of the major technological peculiarities pertained to a new model is the implementation of a unique two-slot IceQ cooler that involves an aluminum heatsink, four copper heat pipes and low-noise powerful fan. As claimed by the manufacturer, the integrated cooling system exceeds the cooler applied in the reference model in terms of heat dissipation power and noise. Hence, noise level produced by IceQ does not exceed the boundary of 28 dB; at the same time, it reduces the GPU temperature at 12 degrees as compared with the reference model.

To continue, Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Boost Clock is based on a …

Meet Pure Power 9 CM Top Series of PSUs from Be Quiet!

Be Quiet! enters the market with a new series of power supply units, entitled Pure Power 9 CM. The lineup includes models of 400 W, 500 W, 600 W, and 700 W power. All of them boast the implementation of Active Clamp + SR topology with high-quality hardware base. Besides, the manufacturer decided to ditch group mechanism of voltage stabilization; this promoted for more efficiency which index achieves 91%.

High efficiency level allowed Pure Power 9 CM units to receive 80Plus Silver certificate. The 12V bus is divided into two lines with the maximal load capacity. Cooling process is attached to a single low-noise 120-mm fan, based on rifle bearing (100 thousand hours MTBF). Its maximal rotational speed varies within 1060-1680 RPM range.

To continue, Be Quiet! has incorporated into the models all possible security mechanisms, including OPP, SCP, UVP, OCP, and others. The units come with an additional Surge Absorber filter that protects the circuitry from voltage surges. …
