SilentiumPC Announces Gladius M20 Pure Black Chassis
SilentiumPC announced the Gladius M20 Pure Black, a new high-value ATX mid-tower case. Made with SECC steel and ABS plastic, the case is built with a design focus on low-noise, although it doesn't offer any active noise dampening material. Fan vents are kept to a minimum, and covered with dust filters, the side-panel is opaque, and most cutouts are valved with rubber grommets, or dust filters.

Measuring 197 mm x 465 mm x 440 mm (WxDxH), and dry-weighing in at 4.45 kg, the Gladius M20 Pure Black, seats ATX, micro-ATX, and mini-ITX motherboards. It offers one each of 5.25-inch and 3.5-inch exposed drive bays, from which the 3.5-inch bay converts into two discrete 2.5-inch ones; and a drive-cage, which holds four 3.5-inch drives, in addition to a 2.5-inch one. The motherboard tray offers room for CPU coolers as tall as 158 mm, and add-on cards as long as 400 mm. Ventilation includes two 120 mm front intakes, and one 120 mm rear exhaust. Front panel features include a "smartphone tray," two USB 3.0 ports, and HDA audio jacks.

Deltatronic Teases First Passively Cooled Haswell-E Workstation
German server/workstation builder Deltatronic unveiled an otherwise impossible-sounding feat - a workstation that's completely fanless, and running Intel's Core i7 "Haswell-E" or Xeon E5-1xxx/2xxx "Haswell-EP" processors (up to 160W TDP), and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 or Quadro K4200 "Maxwell" graphics, completely fanless. The system runs on what the company calls a "heavy-duty convector cooler," which involves solid copper blocks over the CPU/GPU, from which nickel-plated copper heat pipes transfer heat onto a large aluminium panel with grooves, making it the system's heatsink. CPU options include the entire Core "Haswell-E" family, and Xeon E5 "Haswell-EP" family (including 160W TDP models), and GPU options include the entire GeForce "Maxwell" discrete GPU family. The cheapest option, with a Core i7-5820K and GeForce 210 graphics, starts at 1,990€.

(PR) TDK Unveils the SDS1B Series SATA 6Gbps SSDs
TDK Corporation announces the new SDS1B series of 6 Gbps serial ATA compatible 2.5 inch solid state drives for industrial applications, featuring the NAND flash memory controller chip GBDriver GS1. The new products will be available from August 2015.

Recently, the need for fast, high-volume data storage is on the rise, driven by developments such as larger operating system overheads and the trend towards high-definition large-capacity data applications as exemplified by 4K and 8K full high-resolution data broadcasting. As data volumes increase, industrial applications also increasingly call for solid state drives with MLC NAND type memory. In such cases, improved data retention capability as well as high reliability become important considerations along with the regular benchmark test results.
