It almost feels inevitable that once a technology company grows to a massive size, the pursuit of designing its own chips is likewise inevitable. Case in point: Facebook, which follows many other technology companies - such as Google - in building its own chips to accelerate its business. Starting m earlier this year, Facebook began hiring chip engineers, but the specifics of what the company is working on isn't entirely clear. Its latest hire, Shahriar Rabii, comes from Google, where he worked on the Pixel's Visual Core chip. He's now going to work under Andrew Bosworth, who's in charge of Facebook's... Read more...
AMD has had some great momentum since it unleashed its first Zen-based processors to market early last year. A little while later, we saw EPYC hit the enterprise market and Threadripper hit soon thereafter, to cater to high-end enthusiasts and workstation users. Recently, the company followed-up its initial Ryzen release with second-gen parts, and Threadripper 2 is also en route and due in a couple of months (which includes a beastly, 32-core part). Based on what we're seeing right now, it doesn't appear this momentum is going to slow down anytime soon. We've already known for a... Read more...
Samsung is laying claim to having the highest capacity NVMe solid state drive on the market, an 8-terabyte model based on the ultra-thin Next-Generation Small Form Factor (NGSFF). As is often the case when it comes to technological firsts in storage, the new 8TB NVMe NF1 SSD is not a consumer drive, so don't expect to pick this thing up for your gaming PC, as cool as that might be. Instead, it's optimized for heavy data analytics and virtualization applications in next-gen data centers and enterprise environments. The new drive features 16 of Samsung's 512-gigabyte (GB) NAND flash memory packages.... Read more...
Forget about running two graphics cards in SLI, imagine having 16 GPUs working in tandem to crunch through intensive workloads. That would be pretty awesome, right? It's also attainable, at least to certain audiences. NVIDIA today unveiled its HGX-2, a cloud server platform outfitted with 16 Tesla V100 Tensor Core GPUs working as a single, giant GPU to deliver a staggering two petaflops of performance geared towards artificial intelligence. Yes folks, this thing could run Crysis, if that's what it was designed for. It's not, of course, nor is it for playing games in general. NVIDIA is pitching... Read more...
Gigabyte today announced a couple of new 4U GPU servers for the datacenter, both packed with multiple NVIDIA Tesla GPUs to bring massive parallel computing capabilities to the sector. According to Gigabyte, its new G481-S80 and G481-HA0 offer some of the highest GPU density available in the 4U form factor—the former accommodates eight SXM2 form factor GPUs, such as NVIDIA's Volta-based Tesla V100 or Pascal-based Tesla P100, and the latter packs 10 GPUs. These new servers also feature NVIDIA's NVLink technology supporting bi-directional communication between GPUs, allowing for higher bandwidth... Read more...
HTC has launched an upgraded virtual reality kit for businesses that is built around its recently released Vive Pro headset and brand new next-generation base stations. The new Vive Pro 2.0 Kit cost $1,399, which is $200 more than the previous generation Vive Pro Kit, and comes with the Vive Pro HMD VR headset, SteamVr tracking 2.0, a pair of base stations, and two motion controllers. "Enterprise VR is transforming the way businesses operate and interact with their employees and customers. We are bringing the market a premium VR experience with a high-resolution display, integrated audio and the... Read more...
Dell EMC announced on Tuesday three new PowerEdge rack servers feature single-core and dual-core AMD Eypc 7000 series processors underneath the hood. The new PowerEdge R6415, PowerEdge R7415, and PowerEdge R7425 are billed as being highly scalable and intended to address high-performance computing (HPC) workloads, including virtualized storage area networks (VSAN), hybrid cloud applications, dense virtualization, and big data analytics. "With AMD’s EPYC processor integrated into the new Dell EMC PowerEdge platforms, we can deliver the scalability and lower total cost of ownership needed to... Read more...
Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) allowed a Russian defense agency to comb over the source code of cyber defense software used by the Pentagon to secure its computer network from cyber attacks. It is said this was done as part of an attempt by HPE to gain the necessary certifications to see sell similar software in the former Soviet Union in the private sector.The software, called ArcSight, is a central piece of cyber security for many parts of the US military, including the Army, Air Force, and Navy. It alerts authorities of suspected attempts of cyber espionage, picking up on suspicious activity... Read more...
Lenovo is making it easy for business users to collaborate with one another using Skype. At the Microsoft Ignite 2017 conference, Lenovo announced its new ThinkSmart Hub 500, an all-in-one (AIO) Skype Room Systems devices that runs Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. It has the ability to connect remote and local collaborators to Skype for Business meetings, without the fuss of sharing a personal laptop display and messing around with cables. "Workplace transformation begins with collaboration. As workforces are changing, businesses need to provide tools to enable efficiency and teamwork in the office and... Read more...
For those who need the ultimate in compute power, but can't accommodate a computer that would fill an entire room, NVIDIA's DGX-1 'supercomputer' fits the bill. Unveiled earlier this year at NVIDIA's own GTC, the DGX-1 is a server unit that packs in 8 of the company's ultra-powerful Tesla V100s, delivering a peak 960 TFLOPS of half-precision performance. We're not sure how many of these monsters are out in the wild, but one anonymous Geekbench user had access to one long enough to run the test, and immediately broke world records. As you can see in the shot below, the DGX-1 running either OpenCL... Read more...
The need for more bulk storage isn't slowing down, and in fact continues to grow at an incredible rate. At one point, a 4TB hard drive seemed like it offered a ton of digital breathing room. Today, that's not so much the case. As we capture our photos and videos at higher resolutions (8K is right around the corner), many users will reach a point where they feel they simply can't have enough storage. And that's to say nothing of the insatiable appetite for storage in the enterprise and data center.  Earlier this year, HGST blew our minds when it began shipping its first 12TB hard drive, the...

Intel is ready to assault the workstation market with the release of new processors that are part of the Xeon W family. Intel claims that the Xeon W series processors up to 1.36x times faster than their previous generation counterparts, and are up to 1.87x faster than chips from four years ago. All of the new Xeon W processors are built on Intel’s 14nm+ processor technology, support Intel Mesh architecture, slot into LGA 2066 motherboards and come with 48 PCIe 3.0 lanes. You can also expect full support for Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, quad-channel DDR4-2666 ECC memory, and AVX-512 acceleration.... Read more...
Over the weekend, we talked about an issue surrounding AMD's Ryzen-based processors on Unix-based OSes. Today, we learn a lot more about what's going on, as well as which products are actually affected. But first, let's get the upside out of the way: this bug is rare, and requires very specific conditions. The vast majority of users are not going to experience an issue, but it's at least an issue to be aware of. With almost comical timing, SMT issues surrounding both FreeBSD and Linux were outed at around the same time, although it's now been confirmed that the issues are different. Through exhaustive...

Toshiba has been busy updating its solid state drive portfolio this summer, and it is leaving no market untouched. The company's latest product announcement is a pair of speedy enterprise SSDs. They are the first enterprise-class SSDs to be built around the company's latest 64 layer, 3-bit-per-cell TLC (triple-level cell) NAND BiCS flash memory, making it possible for customers to expand the use of flash with cost-optimized solutions.The first of the new drives is the TMC PM5 series. It offers up to a whopping 30.72 terabytes of capacity in a 2.5-inch form factor, with transfer speeds rated to... Read more...
