The SE800 features read and write speeds of 1000 MB/s, comes in a small, pocketable form factor and is IP68 dust and waterproof as well as MIL-STD-810G 516.6 shockproof so it can take a beating.

New AMD Processors Drive High-Performance Computing
     Tue, Feb 25 2020 | 4:26P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD today announced the expansion of the AMD Ryzen™ Embedded ecosystem with two new AMD Ryzen™ Embedded R1000 low-power processors that provide customers with a new TDP range of 6 up to 10 watts. AMD also announced new customers offering Mini PCs based on the AMD Ryzen Embedded processors from Sapphire, SECO, Simply NUC and others.


“AMD is ushering in a new age of high-performance computing for the embedded industry,” said Rajneesh Gaur, corporate vice president and general manager, Embedded Solutions, AMD. “We are doing this with cutting-edge technology to display immersive graphics in 4K resolution with AMD Ryzen Embedded processors, and we are now offering access to high performance in power-efficient solutions with these new low-power Ryzen Embedded R1000 processors.” New AMD Ryzen Embedded Processors In April 2019, AMD launched an expansion to the Ryzen Embedded processor lineup with the AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 SoC. Built on “Zen” CPU and Radeon™ “Vega” graphics cores, the Ryzen Embedded R1000 processor delivers 3X better CPU performance per watt1 compared to the previous generation AMD R-series Embedded processor, and 4X better CPU and graphics performance per dollar than the competition2.

The AMD Ryzen Embedded R1000 family now includes two new processors designed for efficient power envelopes, the Ryzen™ Embedded R1102G and R1305G processors. The new processors scale from 6 up to 10 watts of TDP respectively, while also giving customers the ability to reduce system costs with less memory DIMMS and lower power requirements. With this low power envelope, these embedded processors give customers the ability to create fanless systems, opening new markets that can leverage the high-performance Ryzen Embedded processors. These two new processors are expected to be available for order at the end of March.

Customers adopting the Ryzen Embedded R1102G and R1305G include Kontron with a scalable mini-ITX platform and Simply NUC with a new mini PC unit called Red Oak, which offers affordable mainstream performance solutions with a cost optimized feature set to its lineup of Ryzen Embedded based Mini PCs.

Best NVIDIA And AMD GPUs For High Refresh Rate Gaming
     Tue, Feb 25 2020 | 4:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn't matter if you're playing Call of Duty, Counterstrike, Fortnite, or StarCraft, there's usually a benefit to having the highest frame rates possible when playing games competitively. That requires a couple of things, namely a very fast PC and a 120 - 144Hz or other high-refresh rate gaming monitor. Today, we'll look at the PC components end of that equation and identify graphics cards and GPUs that will help you get the highest possible frame rate out of your rig. However, it goes without saying you'll also need a pretty speedy CPU to drive that card as hard as possible as well...

Elgato 4K60 Pro MK2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Feb 25 2020 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost 20 years ago after I bought my first PC (at least the first one I bought myself) I did my first few upgrades which included more memory, a large hard drive (I think it was close to 20GB), and a video card so I could play all of the games that I wanted to play. I also tied my PC into what was my “entertainment center” in my bedroom which meant being able to output sound to my obnoxiously large stereo and being able to receive signal from devices like my DVD player and game consoles to watch things on my PC with a really poor quality USB capture device. Well, things have improved drastically from there as has the need for capture devices as well now with streaming and YouTube video production. I’ve gone through what is now a large collection of them myself from using them to stream our Old School tournament at LANs and needing one to capture motherboard BIOS’ for motherboard reviews. My most recent one was the Razer Ripsaw which while still functional only works on a few devices after windows updates broke it. So I was excited to see Elgato introduce their latest and greatest, the 4K60 Pro MK2 last fall. Today I’m going to check their new device out and also talk a little more about what sets this apart from the original 4K60 Pro which shares the same name.
