Seagate Ironwolf: 10TB Storage for NAS
     Wed, Jun 21 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seagate Guardian Series brings a massive 10TB of storage space in the 3.5’’ form factor. The Guardian Series from Seagate features a total of four lines of products targeted at various marketing segments: the Barracuda Pro for gamers, the Skyhawk for surveillance systems, the FireCuda for the mobile market, and the Ironwolf for NAS. The Barracuda Pro, Ironwolf, and Skyhawk most likely shared the same internal hardware components since the specifications are pretty much identical across all three drives. They all feature 7200 RPM speeds, 7 heads and 14 disks, 256MB of cache, and support the SATA III (6 Gbps) interface. The difference between them is primarily the firmware and cache subsystem where the Barracuda Pro features multi-cache technology. Additionally, the Skyhawk and the Ironwolf probably have gone through more rigorous testing for the type of workloads they are designed for. As we can see, the Barracuda Pro is rated to operate up to 60ºC, while the Ironwolf and the Skywolf are able to operate up to 70ºC. Additionally, the Ironwolf has twice the load and unload cycle than either the Skyhawk or the Barracuda Pro.

Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 OC Edition
     Wed, Jun 21 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 1080 landed last year and quickly became the go-to choice for high-end graphics junkies and the dream card for a lot of gamers. Nvidia couldn’t leave great alone so they stuck 8GB of GDDR5X on the GTX 1080 increasing its memory bandwidth from 320 GB/s to 352 GB/s or an increase of 10% over the standard GTX 1080 memory speed. Asus put their twist on the new design and the Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 OC Edition 8GB 11Gbps was born giving way to hordes of drooling geeks racing to e-tailers before they sell out of stock!

     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 8:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical keyboards have long been all the rage for gamers, but they're still a long way off becoming ubiquitous due to their premium price point. The Logitech G413 is a full-sized mechanical gaming-oriented keyboard, but at $90 it undercuts most of its competition while packing in largely the same feature set.

AMD Unveils EPYC 7000 Series Processors
     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 8:12P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today marks the launch of AMD's EPYC family of processors for data center servers. Based on the company's Zen microarchitecture, it has become abundantly clear that AMD was targeting the lucrative data center market first and foremost with its new CPU architecture and the highly scalable Naples platform that leverages it. Of course Zen scales well for client/consumer desktop applications, as we've seen with AMD's successful Ryzen processor launch. However, the data center is near and dear to the AMD's heart, due to significantly higher chip pricing and better profit margins; not to mention the explosion of the cloud, from software as a service-built platforms like Amazon AWS, to AI, and big data analytics. Today, AMD is giving us a detailed picture of how its Zen-based EPYC processor lineup will flesh-out...

AMD EPYC 7000 Series Processor Set To Change The Game
     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 8:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD first dreamed up the Zen core architecture they did it to disrupt the datacenter platforms and they new they needed a 32-core processor to do that. AMD came up with a new architecture from the ground up and that would be AMD’s new EPYC server chip (previously codenamed Naples). AMD EPYC hopes to chisel some market share away from Intel, who currently has 99% of this market. Read on to see what EPYC will deliver!

AMD EPYC is the server processor
     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 8:10P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD EPYC is the server processor that takes aim at the Intel Xeon and its dominant status on the data center market. The enterprise field is a high margin, high profit area and while AMD once had significant share in this space with Opteron, that has essentially dropped to zero over the last 6+ years. AMD hopes to use the same tactic in the data center as they did on the consumer side to shock and awe the industry into taking notice: providing impressive new performance levels while undercutting the competition on pricing.

     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we here at Bjorn3D typically focus on the top-end, enthusiast-level hardware, we frequently come across a piece of hardware that is a bit more tame.

ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD’s Ryzen platform was one of the most highly anticipated launches in recent years, with everyone from industry insiders and media, to overclocking champions and gamers just waiting to see how these new multi-core processors performed. And while there have been some ups and downs along the way, many consider Ryzen to be a success. And while much of the hype and scrutiny surrounding this launch was aimed at AMD, many motherboard and peripheral vendors were also on the hook to deliver quality components to pair up with these new CPUs. ASUS is no stranger to us here at Bjorn3D, and they were kind enough to supply their flagship Ryzen motherboard, the ROG Crosshair VI Hero, for review. Seen by many as one of the premier motherboards available at launch, the ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero experienced demands not often seen. With ours in hand, lets take a look at this feature-packed motherboard.
