Lexar NM610 NVMe 1TB Review – Go Fast For Very Little

Published

on

The Lexar NM610 M.2 NVMe SSD family is a lineup for the more cost-conscious market claiming to offer decent speeds with a low cost to upgrade to over traditional SATA solutions. The NM610 is a fairly basic NVMe drive offering up very little bells and whistles and operating sans DRAM but the advertised speeds are decent enough to have it competing with the likes of the Crucial P1 and the Intel 660p, both of which are fairly popular choices in the $100-120 USD price range. In our suite, we don’t have the Intel 660p but thankfully the Crucial P1 is close enough to give you an idea of a point of comparison

Lexar NM610 NVMe Lineup

The Lexar NM610 Family of NVMe SSDs is featuring Intel’s 64 layer TLC NAND modules powered by a Silicon Motion SM2263XT controller. The interesting part of the lineup offering up to 2,100 MB/s Reads and 1,600 MB/s Writes on the 1TB and 512GB models (2,000/1,200 on 250GB) is that these drives are DRAM-less. They instead rely on the SM2263XT uses the feature known as Host Memory Buffer that shares some of the system memory to handle the buffering. If your concerned that’ll it’ll chew up your memory capacity don’t worry, it won’t.

First Look At The Lexar NM610 NVMe – Unboxing And Closer Look

The packaging of the Lexar NM610 could easily deceive you into thinking it’s a higher tier product thanks to its well-designed box and layout. The problem with it is you will not find any information regarding performance on the box other than an ‘Up To 2100MB/s transfer’ label on the top of the back. The speeds and feeds specifications on the packaging is very important for the off the shelf shoppers and more information is needed there. The internal packaging does a great job of protecting the drive while being transported from the factory to your home.

The drive itself features a nice black PCB so that it’s not a distracting eyesore once installed on a desktop motherboard without a heatsink, but it’s slightly marred by the bland and largely white sticker on the outer facing side. While I can complain that the sticker is boring I can’t complain that they put it on upside down.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Gaming Laptops Powered Massive Cryptocurrency Mining Farm Spotted in China, Over Hundreds of Ampere Laptops

Published

on

Last week, it was reported how cryptocurrency miners are rushing after NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Gaming Laptops to earn that sweet digital currency profits. Well, now a video tour of one of the mining farms has surfaced showcasing several hundred gaming laptops being used to mine the cryptocurrencies.

Several Hundred NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Gaming Laptops Spotted In Chinese Cryptocurrency Mining Farm Video Tour

Earlier, we only got to see a glimpse of the cryptocurrency mining farm but a brand new video has surfaced which shows the complete scale of the setup. The setup is based in China but the user has not mentioned the location for obvious reasons. As you can tell, the mining farm is set up with and utilizes NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Gaming laptops from the Chinese manufacturer, Hasse.

The Hasse laptop is based on the GeForce RTX 3060 mobility GPU. The GeForce RTX 3060 laptop solution is definitely not similar to the desktop variant which offers much better specifications and doesn’t come at a lower price either. According to NVIDIA themselves, the RTX 3060 laptops start at $999 US & the miners can save a penny by purchasing in bulk but they end up paying at least $600 US more for the laptop variant. Plus, they also end up with unnecessary hardware that the laptops feature. At the same time, the laptop variants do feature reduced TGPs which might save electricity costs & offer higher cryptocurrency mining rates.

What’s interesting here is that the user has bought these laptops in a bulk order which means that either the retailer, distributor, or the manufacturer itself is openly supporting cryptocurrency miners over actual customers such as gamers which these laptops are primarily designed for. The selling party could be taking advantage of crypto miners by selling these at scalped prices to earn a profit.

Intel 3rd Gen Xeon Ice Lake-SP CPU Rumors – 10nm With Up To 40 Cores, 8-Channel DDR4-3200, 64 PCIe Gen 4.0 Lanes, Max 270W TDP

Published

on

A couple of rumors regarding Intel’s Ice Lake-SP Xeon server CPUs have surfaced over the web, mostly from known leaker, Momomo_US. The information consists of specifications, configs & power ratings of several SKUs that will be part of the 3rd Gen Xeon Scalable processor family.

Intel 3rd Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU Rumors Point Out Up To 40 Cores, 270W TDPs & Brand New Core Architecture

Starting off with the details, Intel’s 3rd Gen Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPUs will be based on the 10nm+ process node and utilize the Sunny Cove core architecture. The Intel Sunny Cove x86 architecture has been around since 2019 and was first featured on Intel’s 10th Gen Ice Lake processors for the notebook segment. Intel has since moved over to Tiger Lake which is based on the Willow Cove x86 architecture and makes use of the 10nm SuperFin process node.

Some of the major upgrades that Intel’s 10nm+ for Ice Lake-SP Xeon CPU will deliver include:

Intel’s Raja Koduri Teases Xe HPG Enthusiast Gaming Graphics Cards In Action Within 3DMark Mesh Shader Test, Launch Imminent?

Published

on

Intel’s Senior Vice President, Raja Koduri, has been dropping some major bombs on his Twitter feed for a while now. The most recent one being the Xe HPC chip shot which is an engineering marvel but it looks like Raja has switched gears and now dropped a teaser of Intel’s first gaming discrete graphics cards, the Xe HPG.

Intel Teases Xe HPG Enthusiast Gaming Graphics Cards, Running 3DMark’s Upcoming Mash Shader Feature

It’s been some time since we last heard about Intel’s Xe HPG (High-Performance Gaming) discrete GPUs or graphics cards. Intel’s main focus has been Xe-LP and they also dive in deeper within the tech that Xe HPC has to offer considering it’s their biggest chip design to date and the flagship Xe product. But the Xe HPG is where the gaming community is more focused at and we have got the first teaser of Intel’s discrete graphics cards based on the HPG GPUs running in action.

— Raja Koduri (@Rajaontheedge) February 10, 2021

The teaser from Raja shows an undisclosed Intel Xe HPG GPU based discrete graphics card running the UL 3DMark Mesh Shader Feature test. This test is coming out soon and will be integrated within the 3DMark test suite. Mesh Shader is one of the major features introduced within DirectX 12 Ultimate API back in 2020. The feature is supported by NVIDIA’s Turing, Ampere, and AMD’s RDNA 2 graphics architectures. Based on this tweet, Intel will also be adding Mesh Shaders support on its Xe-HPG class discrete GPUs.

The technology helps to dramatically improve performance and image quality when rendering a scene with a substantial number of very complex objects. Take for instance a very complex & triangle-heavy mesh and what Mesh Shaders would essentially do is segment it into smaller meshlets. Each meshlet ideally optimizes the vertex re-use within it. Using the new hardware stages and this segmentation scheme, devs can render more geometry
