Icy Dock ToughArmor MB872MP-B allows 12 SSDs to be installed in the optical drive bay

Published

on

The ToughArmor MB872MP-B has been added to the Icy Dock range. This is an M.2 SSD cage and is designed to fit into the normally empty 5.25-inch optical drive bay. It simultaneously accommodates 12 SSDs with a length of 30 to 110 mm (2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 or 22110). Note that only SATA drives are supported.

For connection, three OCuLink connectors (SFF-8612) are used, which are located on the rear panel. Grouping reduces the number of cables. At the same time, a full-fledged connection with a bandwidth of 6 Gb / s remains available to each drive. Power is supplied through two 15-pin SATA power connectors.

Replacing drives requires no tools. The SSD trays are made of aluminum so they can dissipate heat well. To ensure good thermal contact with the drive components, the kit includes heat-conducting pads located on the inside of the tray. The entire structure, also made of metal, is cooled by ventilation holes and a 40mm fan. A three position switch allows you to select high or low speed, or turn off the fan. Each tray has an LED status indicator.

Product dimensions are 157.8 x 146 x 41.3 mm. The manufacturer does not quote the price.

JetStream are back. Palit GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti JetStream graphics cards unveiled – and they have one notable difference from the competition

JetStream are back Palit GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti

Palit returns to the production of JetStream video cards. More than two years after the release of the GeForce RTX 3070 JetStream, the company introduced the GeForce RTX 4080 and 4070 Ti JetStream. These models differ from analogues in the absence of RGB backlighting.

At one time, manufacturers of various hardware were so carried away by the introduction of backlighting into everything that is possible that now its absence is already perceived as a “trick”. On the other hand, the frequencies here are completely standard, and from this point of view, the lack of backlight is more of a savings factor.

Video cards look almost the same – and rather modestly. However, they are long – 329 mm (after all, there are three fans) and rather thick (they take up 3.1 slots). It is possible that dual-fan models will also appear in the JetStream series, but already based on the GeForce RTX 4070 or GeForce RTX 4060. The cost of new products has not yet been announced.

Nvidia says its Grace CPU Superchip is twice as fast as x86-compatible processors for the same power consumption

Nvidia says its Grace CPU Superchip is twice as fast

Nvidia said that its Arm-based Grace CPU Superchip processor in tests with real workloads shows a twofold increase in performance compared to x86-compatible CPUs in the same range of power consumption. With which processors Nvidia compared, it is not specified.

Nvidia says its Grace CPU Superchip is twice as fast as x86-compatible processors for the same power consumption

The company says these figures mean data centers can handle twice as much peak traffic for the same power consumption if they switch to Grace. Or they can cut their energy bills by almost half while maintaining productivity.

Nvidia itself says that Grace provides such results thanks to three main factors. Firstly, these are 72 Arm Neoverse V2 cores in one CPU (Grace CPU Superchip, we recall, contains two CPUs on one board), and secondly, in fact, the combination of two such CPUs via the NVLink-C2C interface with a bandwidth of 900 GB / s , third, the use of server-class LPDDR5X memory.
