We all know the old ‘David and Goliath’ story. Not the weird claymation show from the 1960s, obviously, but the one from the Bible that has been transferred into popular culture to be synonymous with the little guy against the giant. Mind you, the 1960s show is definitely worthy of discussion, if only for how incredibly strange it was, and possibly for why they made the dog able to speak….but only very slowly. However, this is an article about cooling, and the possible capabilities of smaller coolers, and we will not be using slingshots and stones during our testing.
ENERMAX introduces 3 new EMK 5 series backplane modules for industrial storage rack: EMK5301, EMK5401 and EMK5501, which can accomdate 3~5 3.5“ SATA or SAS drives respectively. "The 3 new EMK 5 backplane modules feature patented NSS (Non-Scratch-SATA) connectors, individual drives’ power on/off controller, and a cooling fan. The built-in LED and buzzer warning systems also help the system administrator easily locate the drives in question and service it.

Micron Technology, Inc., and Intel Corporation revealed the availability of their 3D NAND technology, the world's highest-density flash memory. Flash is the storage technology used inside the lightest laptops, fastest data centers, and nearly every cellphone, tablet and mobile device. "This new 3D NAND technology, which was jointly developed by Intel and Micron, stacks layers of data storage cells vertically with extraordinary precision to create storage devices with three times higher capacity1 than competing NAND technologies."

Futuremark announces a new 3DMark API Overhead feature test - the world's first independent test for measuring differences in DirectX 12, DirectX 11 and Mantle API performance. It's also the very first public application to use DirectX 12 full stop. This is cutting edge stuff! "Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, the 3DMark API Overhead feature test lets you compare the performance of DirectX 12, DirectX 11, and Mantle."See More
