Seagate Announces 64TB NVMe SSD, Updated Nytro NVMe and SAS Lineup at FMS 2017

For FMS 2017, Seagate made a slew of new announcements including a new 64TB NVMe PCIe SSD, updates to the Nytro SSD lineup, a new RealStor storage appliance, and Nytro Q-Boost technology.

When Seagate announced their 60TB SAS SSD last year, it was an impressive feat however, Seagate and its partners quickly realized that there were limited use cases for the SSD. The capacity was simply too large for the relatively performance limited SAS interface.

For 2017, Seagate went back to the drawing board and announced a new 64TB NVMe SSD which is simply a full height, half-length form factor add-in card containing eight M.2 22110 PCIe Gen 3 x4 [...]

Dell Shows Precision 5820, 7820 and 7920 Workstations at SIGGRAPH 2017

Dell announced a massive refresh of its Precision line of workstations at SIGGRAPH 2017, marking the first refresh of the Precision lineup in five years.

Since it’s the 20 year anniversary for Dell’s workstation business, it’s only fitting to talk about Dell’s first workstation and to see how far they’ve come in the 20 years. Dell’s first workstation was the WorkStation 400, which came in a beige box packed with either one or two Intel Penium II processors running at either 266 MHz, 300 MHz or 333 MHz. The system took as much as 512 MB of RAM and ran Windows NT. In 1997, this was absolutely cutting edge [...]

Intel Launches SSD DC P4800X: Proves 3D XPoint Isn’t Vaporware

Several months ago, a leaked spec sheet detailed an upcoming Intel 3D XPoint SSD, the Optane SSD DC P4800X, which was officially launched today finally proving that despite numerous delays, 3D XPoint isn’t the vaporware many of us expected it to be.

Initially launching in a 375GB Add-in-Card (AIC), the Intel Optane SSD DC P4800X is designed for high write enterprise workloads. As such, performance is heavily oriented towards random read/write workloads and quality of service. In the above specs, we can see that Intel doesn’t even bother listing the sequential performance numbers. As a drive designed to be used for high write applications, the [...]

Intel Optane Limited to Kaby Lake 7th Gen Intel Core Processors

After Intel and Micron announced 3D XPoint several years ago, drives based on the technology were mostly just talk. This changed recently at CES as many of Intel’s partners began showing off their latest notebooks equipped with the new 3D XPoint based Optane Memory drives. As a result, many believe that Intel may begin shipping Optane to retailers shortly.

Recently, Intel also recently quietly launched their Optane mini-site which contains some very unfortunate news for those with older systems looking forward to Optane to provide that much needed speed boost. According to the Intel Optane micro-site, Optane Memory is a platform feature and as such, there are [...]
