Processors Intel Haswell to Rival Accelerator NVIDIA Tesla

Intel Corporation has the intentions to introduce DDR4 memory into their server processors of Haswell series. The launch of such technological approach is planned for the 2014, however the developments in this sphere have already started. Intel’s server solutions will become a part of Grantley platform and the samples of their new series will allegedly be announced next autumn. The preview of new processors makes it clear that some of the chips will be distinguished by the increased heat generation performance which will reach 160 W.



Hence, 16-core processors Haswell-EP will rival parallel computing accelerator NVIDIA Tesla but not AMD server solutions. Intel is going to provide various working frequency options and options with different number of active cores. At the same time, TDP will fluctuate within ranges of 160, 145, 135, and 120 W. In its turn, accelerator NVIDIA Tesla, which is based on GK110 processor, consumes approximately 300 W.

Biostar G330 SSD Drives Are Compatible with Desktop PCs, Laptops and Ultrabooks

The Biostar Co. has announced SSD drives of the G330 Series, which are compatible with desktops, standard notebooks, as well as ultrabooks, operated by Windows, macOS and Linux.



These storage devices are performed in the 2.5-inch form factor. The case is 6.8 mm in thickness.The specialties by Biostar are manufactured with the use of 3D TLC NAND flash memory microchips from Micron and the SMI 2258 controller. The default Serial ATA 3.0 interface allows to connect the SSD to the computer.


The Biostar G330 line incorporates samples of 128, 256 and 512 GB capacity. The read response time claimed equals to 560 MB/sec (in the minor version) and 565 MB/sec (in the two other versions). The ultimate writing speed is 500 MB/sec and 515 MB/sec respectively.


The 128 GB Biostar G330 SSD costs $60. The models of 256 and 512 GB capacity will be available at the price of $100 and $170.

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 …
