Citing data from Trendfocus’s quarterly report, the source said that in the third quarter of 2021, the shipments of solid-state drives in the client segment decreased markedly. Compared to the second quarter of 2021, supplies in quantitative terms decreased by 17%, and if we count the total storage capacity, the decrease was 3%.

At the same time, shipments of corporate solid-state drives remained at a high level. Only in the segment of drives with SATA interface a small (a few percent) reduction in quantitative terms was recorded.

A total of 82.524 million solid state drives were shipped in the third quarter. The market leader is Samsung, which accounts for 25% of shipments. In second place with 14.3% is SK Hynix, and the entire market distribution is shown in the top chart.

Samsung’s leadership looks even more convincing if we operate in terms of information volume. The drives shipped during the quarter by the South Korean giant accounted for 40% of the total volume of 66,381 EB. The share of SK Hynix drives is 10.0%. The shares of these and other market participants are shown in the bottom chart.

Mounted on the radiator is a 120mm hydraulic bearing fan with a nine-blade impeller. The rotation speed is regulated by PWM in the range of 800-1800 rpm. The maximum speed corresponds to a noise level of 25.3 dBA, an air flow of 140 m3/ h and a static pressure of 2.55 mm H2O.

The fan is decorated with multicolor backlighting. Its service life is declared equal to 50,000 hours. The dimensions of the cooling system are 160 x 128 x 76 mm.

The new cooling systems are suitable for processors with a TDP of up to 160W. In addition to the already mentioned Intel Core 12th Generation (Alder Lake) LGA 1700 processors, the compatibility list includes other modern Intel and AMD processors. No pricing information yet.

The source found three laptops on the PC21.fr site with 12th generation Intel Core processors (Alder Lake). In the configuration of one of them, the mobile video card GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is indicated. This Acer Nitro AN515-58 gaming laptop is built with a 14-core Intel Core i7-12700H processor and 8GB of DDR4-3200 memory. The display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels supports refresh rates up to 165 Hz.

In addition, the website of the French store confirms plans to release Acer Nitro 5 laptops (AN517-55 and AN515-58) powered by Core i5-12500H processor with mobile RTX 3050 Ti graphics card. In fact, this is the first time any retailer has mentioned such a GPU. Both laptops are expected to cost less than € 1,300 (inclusive of VAT), which is unfortunately higher than the starting price of € 999 for the latest generation of RTX 3060 gaming laptops.

Specifications for the RTX 3070 Ti are still unknown. The card is expected to have a stripped-down GA104 GPU with fewer cores than the RTX 3080 (6144) and more than the RTX 3070 (5120). The GDDR6 memory will be 8 GB and the bus width will be 256 bits.

As for the Core i5-12500H processor, it is rumored to have 12 cores and can execute 16 threads, which implies 4 high-performance cores and 8 energy-efficient cores. Clock rates are not yet known.

The release of these new products is expected in January, after CES 2022.

PNY has started selling X-PRO 90 UHS-II SDXC memory cards, according to the source, “designed to keep pace with the growing demand for high-definition photo and video recording.” The line includes storage media of 64, 128 and 256 GB. UHS-II support enables write speeds up to 280MB / s and read speeds up to 300MB / s. That’s enough for 8K video and burst photography.

X-PRO 90 cards are marked with the V90 speed class, meaning that the read and write speed does not fall below 90 MB / s. Of course, this speed is only possible if the memory is used in conjunction with a UHS-II device.

PNY X-PRO 90 UHS-II memory cards of 64, 128 and 256 GB cost 78, 130 and 240 dollars, respectively.
