ASUS’ RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

  • Posted on August 18, 2017 at 3:54 pm

These days, it’s fairly easy to find a PCI Express-based SSD to transform one’s desktop — Angelbird, Fusion-io, Micron and ASUS will sell you one, just to name a few. That said, the last of those three has just revealed a new entrant that will certainly catch the eye of many, as the RAIDR Express claims to be the first PCI-e SSD to be compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS. The so-called DuoMode feature is joined by 240GB of storage space, sequential 830MB/s read and 810MB/s write speeds and a reported 620,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF).

You’ll also find the latest LSI SandForce controller, Toshiba-built 19nm MLC flash, and 100,000 4K read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS). The bundled RAMDisk utility allows users to dedicate up to 80 percent of a computer’s available RAM for use as a high-speed virtual drive, and if you needed any further proof that it’s fast, look no further than in the video after the break. Curiously, ASUS isn’t talking pricing just yet, but it should start shipping in the very near future.

Motherboard ECS A55F2- M3

  • Posted on August 15, 2017 at 12:59 pm

Now with FM2

If you remember, the elder brother of ECS-M3 PCplus A55F2 test this time PCplus ever fit in issue 412. Old brother-M3 ECS A55F2 it is ECS A55F-M3 alias minus the number 2 on the naming. At that time, ECS A55F-M3 comes with support for AMD socket FM1 APU with. Now, ECS A55F2-M3 comes with support for the latest generation AMD APU, Trinity, who took FM2 socket.

u6-435-ecsSelain will support newer AMD APU, ECS-M3 A55F2 also added to the display for digital output. ECS A55F-M3 only offer analog outputs in the form of D-Sub 15pin. Digital outputs are added to this is the HDMI.

In terms of main memory slots and expansion slots, micro ATX motherboard is still giving two slots and three slots. Expansion slot is paired ECS PCIExpress 2.0 x16, PCI-Express 2.0 x1, and PCI. Unfortunately, the use of dual slot graphics card, like his brother, will close the slot PCI-Express 2.0 x1 and could complicate the use of a SATA port.

What about the additional facilities? ECS-M3 A55F2 rely more on the facilities offered by the AMD A55 chipset it uses. Therefore, there is no SATA 6Gbps and USB 3.0. Similarly, eSATA and FireWire. Both of these interfaces are not added to the ECS.

For you who like tinkering with computers, this motherboard does provide a number of options for you to adjust the BIOS setup, but there are a number of common options for tweaking is not offered by ECS. There is also no indicator POST process and switch / easy to clear CMOS button on the rear panel. The good, easy way to clear CMOS utilizing the Page Up key on the keyboard still included.

For business solid capacitors, ECS-M3 A55F2 use. Unfortunately, the use of only on the assessed critical. For others, ECS still wearing electrolytic capacitor. Just a reminder, solid capacitors generally considered to have the durability and quality that is better than electrolytic capacitor that is more affordable.

Given that the cost should you spend to redeem, various limitations this is a natural thing. ECS motherboard consign it for you who need a FM2 motherboard affordable and do not need the completeness of all kinds. Good again, ECS still provides a number of distinctive features such as the EZ Charger can recharge your mobile device battery quickly.

NEXCOM’s Latest Vehicle Mount Computer Manages Volatility In Mining Logistics Services

  • Posted on August 10, 2017 at 3:17 pm

NEXCOM’s new, all-in-one vehicle mount computer, optimizes mining logistics service and manages volatile working conditions in tank trucks. With orders, vehicle, traffic and weather information gathered and shared in real-time among drivers and dispatchers; the mining logistics service delivers required material to mining sites in an efficient, safe and eco-friendly manner.

Equipped with a total tracking system, this vehicle mount computer travels alongside drivers uphill and downhill in the Appalachian Mountains to transport water, sand and chemicals to mining sites. The total tracking system in the vehicle cabin allows drivers to communicate with dispatchers, map the shortest and quickest route, retrieve new assignments, print shipping documents, check vehicle status and tank volume, monitor materials in real-time to prevent spills and receive weather alerts.

Concurrently, the shared information enables dispatchers to track vehicle and freight location, assign new orders to appropriate drivers, keep up-to-date order reports, remotely regulate traffic at mining sites, detect anomalies in vehicle maneuvers, and offer assistance in vehicle accidents. Moreover, the total tracking system integrates with dashboard and cabin cameras for traffic and driver monitoring as well as streams live videos to the dispatch center as needed.

With so much information, the total tracking system optimizes the mining logistics service by reducing fuel consumption and shortening transportation time. The system increases safety by encouraging traffic regulation compliance with daily operations monitoring, replaces onsite flagmen with remotely managed traffic signal systems, and prepare drivers for different weather conditions at different altitudes. Additionaly, with better monitoring, the no-spill policy can effectively be enforced to protect the environment.

Combing NEXCOM’s all-in-one vehicle mount computer and the Red Dog Logistics software makes the total tracking system possible. The VMC 3000, a ruggedized vehicle mount computer, features a 10.4″ touch screen, GPS, Wi-Fi and 3G connection as well as abundant I/O interfaces. Highly praised by Red Dog Logistics, its heavy-duty design not only lays the solid cornerstone for vehicle data logging, location-based functions, communication, and video storage, but it also keeps the cabin neat and functional when working in conjunction with peripherals, such as thermal printer, cameras, tank measure sensor, and RFID reader for driver login.

Integrating the Red Dog Logistics software, which consists of a user interface, web-based backend server and relational database with the data provided by the VMC 3000; provides aggregate reports and business insights that help mining logistics services drive into higher gears.

ASUS PQ321Q UltraHD Monitor Review: Living with a 31.5-inch 4K Desktop Display

  • Posted on July 23, 2017 at 3:30 pm

Many consider me to be a 4K hater. The past few trade shows I’ve attended have been pushing it on consumers to replace their TVs, but I see less value in it. When it comes to a computer display, it is a different game. Unlike a 50” TV, we sit close to our monitors, even if they are 30” in size. We also have no worries about a lack of native content, since everything is rendered on the fly and native. There are no issues with the lack of HDMI 2.0, as DisplayPort 1.2 can drive a 3840×2160 screen at 60 Hz.

When it comes to 4K on the desktop, my main question is: how much difference will I see? ASUS is one of the first with a HiDPI display in the PQ321Q. While not truly 4K, it is a 3840×2160 LCD display that can accept an Ultra High Definition (UHD) signal over HDMI and DisplayPort. It also clocks in at a wallet-stretching $3,500 right now. The question is, are we seeing the future with displays here, or are we seeing a niche product?

What does 4K/UHD/HiDPI bring to the desktop? We’ve seen it for a few years now in smartphones and tablets, making their smaller screens more usable for reading and general work. My initial thought is more desktop space, as that is what it has meant before. With a 32” monitor and a pixel density this high, running it without any DPI scaling leads to a desktop where reading text is a huge pain. Instead I believe most users will opt for DPI scaling so elements are larger and easier to read. Now you have something similar to the Retina screen on the iPhone: No more desktop space compared to a 2560×1440 monitor, but one that is razor sharp and easier to look at.

To get to this pixel density, ASUS has relied upon a panel from Sharp that uses IGZO technology. IGZO (Indium gallium zinc oxide) is a material that replaces amorphous silicon for the active layer of an LCD screen. The main benefit is higher electron mobility that allows for faster reacting, smaller pixels. We have seen non-IGZO panels in smartphones with higher pixel densities, but we don’t have any other current desktop LCDs that offer a higher pixel density than this ASUS display. IGZO also allows for a wide viewing angle.
