The anti-mining GeForce RTX 3060 is finally out. Ethereum mining performance more than halved

Published

on

Galax was the first company to introduce Nvidia GeForce RTX 30 LHR graphics cards – with limited performance for Ethereum mining. Galax already has such RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 in its assortment, and now the RTX 3060 has also appeared. It was the GeForce RTX 3060 that was supposed to become the first graphics card in the line with limited performance for cryptocurrency mining, but in fact it debuted later than the others.

Like other anti-mining Galax models, the GeForce RTX 3060 is designated FG. Recall that Nvidia does not give clear instructions on how to designate new anti-mining models on the Ampere GPU – here manufacturers of finished devices are free to decide on their own. In the case of Galax, such video cards received the FG postscript, while for MSI such models will most likely be denoted by the word Plus in the title. At least, this is indicated by documents from the EEC database.

The anti-mining GeForce RTX 3060 is finally out.  Ethereum mining performance more than halved

In terms of characteristics and performance, the anti-mining GeForce RTX 3060 is no different from the one that came out earlier. However, its performance during Ethereum mining has been more than halved: it was up to 44 MH / s, but now it is only 20 MH / s. However, the anti-mining GeForce RTX 3060 has yet to go on sale widely, so cryptocurrency miners still have one last chance to get a fully functional version. And after completely replacing the old version with the new cryptocurrency miners, they can switch to AMD 3D cards: the Radeon RX 6700 XT provides performance at the level of the anti-mining GeForce RTX 3080, but at the same time it costs much less.

Greenliant G7200 PX Industrial SSD Lineup includes models up to 7.68 TB

Published

on

Greenliant has unveiled the G7200 PX solid-state drives, which it says will provide enterprise-grade data reliability, high performance, and industrial temperatures (-40 ° C to + 85 ° C). The lineup includes models in 1.92, 3.84 and 7.68 TB. They use TLC 3D NAND memory.

The 2.5-inch SATA 6Gb / s drives are compatible with existing systems and are therefore well suited for upgrades by replacing hard drives with SSDs. They provide sequential read and write speeds of up to 550 and 530 MB / s, respectively. The resource is advertised as being able to perform two complete rewrites per day (DWPD) over a period of 5 years.

Among the advantages of the drives, the manufacturer considers the presence of a data loss protection scheme during a power outage, support for hardware encryption using the AES algorithm with a 256-bit key and guaranteed data erasure without the possibility of recovery, as well as support for hot swapping.

Greenliant 7200 PX preview samples are now available. The company plans to begin mass deliveries by the end of 2021.

Published

on

Qnap Systems introduced the QXG-10G2TB network card. It is a PCIe 3.0 x4 card that allows you to add two 10GbE ports to your QNAP networked storage configuration or Windows or Ubuntu computer. The card is backward compatible with PCIe 2.0 x4 and networking equipment supporting 5Gbps, 2.5Gbps, 1Gbps, and 100Mbps speeds.

Qnap launches dual 10GbE PCIe expansion card

The card is based on the Marvell AQtion 10GbE AQC113C controller. The manufacturer notes that the power consumption of the card is half that of previous models of this kind. For maximum speed, CAT 6 cables are recommended. There are three mounting brackets included: a full height bracket, a low profile bracket, and a dedicated bracket for installation in select Qnap NAS models.

The price of new items is $ 227. Sales have already started.

EK offers free mounting hardware to install EK-Quantum Velocity waterblocks on LGA 1700 processors

Published

on

EK, which recently released EK-Quantum Velocity² waterblocks specifically designed for Intel LGA 1700 processors, announced that the original EK-Quantum Velocity can also be used with the new processors. The base of the waterblock is large enough to make good contact with the CPU heat spreader. The only part required for installation is the rear panel.

It is available free of charge in the EK online store and will also be available free of charge in the major EK retail partner stores.

The manufacturer makes a reservation that only one LGA 1700 panel is available from the store for free. If a customer needs to update multiple PCs, please contact our EK support team.

The mounting holes on boards with an LGA 1700 socket are located at the top of a 78 x 78 mm square, but some boards have double mounting holes that also support 75 x 75 mm. This means that all LGA 115x and LGA 1200 processor cooling solutions are compatible with the new processors. The list of waterblocks compatible with the EK-Quantum Velocity Backplate – LGA1700 is as follows:

  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Copper + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Nickel + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity – Nickel + Acetal
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Acetal
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Nickel + Frosted Plexi
  • EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB – Full Nickel
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Strike D-RGB – Black Nickel + Black
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Strike D-RGB – Matte Black + Silver
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Honor D-RGB – Black Nickel + Stars & Stripes
  • EK-Quantum Velocity Honor D-RGB – AMD Black Nickel + Stars & Stripes
  • EK-Classic CPU Water Block 115x / 20xx D-RGB

The LGA 1700 back panel will be available for free until May 1, 2022. After that, it will be available for purchase at a symbolic retail price.
