Micron Introduces Industry’s First 2TB 22mm x 30mm PCIe Gen4 Client SSD

Published

on

Micron Technology this week announced that it has begun mass shipping the world’s first solid-state drive that uses Micron’s 176-layer QLC NAND flash memory, also a world first.

The new memory is said to provide industry-leading storage density and optimized performance for a wide range of data-intensive applications. It is also suitable for servers, but the Micron 2400 drive in question belongs to the client segment. The company also announced that 176-layer QLC NAND memory will be used in select Micron Crucial consumer SSDs and shipped as components for use by other developers and manufacturers.

According to Micron, 176-layer QLC NAND memory outperforms previous-generation Micron memory by 33%. Read latency reduced by 24%. It is the only commercially available QLC flash memory that combines a charge trap architecture with CMOS logic under the cell array.

The Micron 2400 SSD is the world’s only M.2 2230 SSD with capacity up to 2TB. This drive is 63% smaller than current 2TB M.2 2280mm drives. It is equipped with a PCIe Gen4 interface and supports the NVMe 1.4 protocol.

The sequential read speed reaches 4500 MB / s, sequential write – 4000 MB / s. Performance on random access operations in read mode reaches 650,000 IOPS, in write mode – 700,000 IOPS. The line also includes 512 GB and 1 TB variants. All three are available in M.2 2242 and 2280 form factors. A 512 GB drive is 150 TBW, a 1 TB drive is 300 TBW, and a 2 TB drive is 600 TBW.

Mobile GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is faster than Titan RTX and nearly as fast as Radeon RX 6800

Published

On January 5 at CES 2022, Nvidia introduced new graphics cards, including the mobile GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. During the announcement, Nvidia revealed that the top model is faster than the desktop GeForce Titan RTX, but what about the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti? Now this 3D accelerator has been tested in Geekbench (as part of the MSI Vector GP66 laptop), and in the OpenCL test, it showed a result exactly on the level of Titan RTX. What’s more, the desktop Radeon RX 6800 isn’t far ahead.

Given that GeForce RTX 3070 Ti laptops start at $1,500, this is a very good deal for both gamers and those looking to purchase a laptop for professional use. Mobile PCs with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti are already much more expensive, starting at $2,500. Interestingly, the Radeon RX 6800 retails for around the same $1,500, so users will have the choice of buying just the graphics card for the same amount, or an entire laptop with graphics performance nearly equivalent to that graphics card.

Recall that the mobile GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is built on a GA104 GPU with 5888 CUDA cores with a frequency of 1035-1485 MHz. The GPU is connected to 8GB of 14GHz GDDR6 memory via a 256-bit bus.

Android games are officially on Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs: you need a gaming GPU and SSD

Published

Even at the time of the announcement of the Windows 11 operating system, Microsoft promised that it would support applications for Android, but this functionality was not ready to launch the OS.

Now Google has finally launched the first beta version of this functionality. Users in some markets can sign up for Google Play Games, where they can play 12 Android games on their computer.

Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea were the first countries/regions to gain access to this feature. Residents of these countries can start testing Asphalt 9, Gardenscapes and Homescapes, as well as several other local games.

Android games are officially on Windows 10 and Windows 11 PCs: you need a gaming GPU and SSD

The system requirements list is Windows 10 (v2004) or Windows 11, an octa-core processor, 8 GB of RAM, a gaming-grade graphics accelerator, and at least 20 GB of SSD storage.

The Google Play Games menu is very similar to the regular Google Play Store, but with longer descriptions and information about whether the game has ads and in-app purchases. It is expected that the beta test will start soon in other countries with more games.

In China, the Radeon RX 6500 XT sold out in seconds, the price of the video card is predicted to rise

Published

Yesterday official sales of the budget 3D-card Radeon RX 6500 XT started. Recall that it was presented at CES 2022: with an official price of $ 200, it became the most affordable representative of the family. In China, the start of sales of the Radeon RX 6500 XT was accompanied by a real boom: according to a source, video cards were sold out in seconds.

In China, the Radeon RX 6500 XT sold out in seconds, the price of the video card is predicted to rise

This is not surprising, because the cost of the Radeon RX 6500 XT in this country, although it turned out to be higher than the official one, is not much higher: the price of the most affordable models is $250, the most expensive is $305. But given the hype, the source believes that the Radeon RX 6500 XT will rise in price more in the future.

Interestingly, if the Radeon RX 6500 XT itself can no longer be bought in China, then ready-made computers with it are on sale quite widely. Perhaps the volume of video cards for PC builders turned out to be more than the volume intended for retail sale.
