Ceton ships InfiniTV 6 PCIe tuner, crams six HD channels into a home theater PC

Ceton ships InifiniTV 6 CableCARD tuner in PCIe form

Ceton vowed that it would release a PCI Express equivalent of its InfiniTV 6 ETH box, and it’s delivering on that promise (if belatedly) by shipping the InfiniTV 6 PCIe. The adapter still lets Windows Media Center users watch or record up to six HD cable TV channels through one CableCARD, but in a form factor that slots neatly into a dedicated home theater PC. The board is in stock at Amazon and Newegg today at its expected $ 299 price. While that cost puts the InfiniTV PCIe at the high end of the TV tuner spectrum, it may be worthwhile for viewers who just can’t afford to miss a show.

ASUS’ RAIDR Express PCI-e SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

ASUS' RAIDR Express PCI Expressbased SSD is compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS

These days, it’s fairly easy to find a PCI Express-based SSD to transform one’s desktop — Angelbird, Fusion-io, Micron and ASUS will sell you one, just to name a few. That said, the last of those three has just revealed a new entrant that will certainly catch the eye of many, as the RAIDR Express claims to be the first PCI-e SSD to be compatible with both legacy and UEFI BIOS. The so-called DuoMode feature is joined by 240GB of storage space, sequential 830MB/s read and 810MB/s write speeds and a reported 620,000 hours mean time between failure (MTBF).

You’ll also find the latest LSI SandForce controller, Toshiba-built 19nm MLC flash, and 100,000 4K read/write input/output operations per second (IOPS). The bundled RAMDisk utility allows users to dedicate up to 80 percent of a computer’s available RAM for use as a high-speed virtual drive, and if you needed any further proof that it’s fast, look no further than in the video after the break. Curiously, ASUS isn’t talking pricing just yet, but it should start shipping in the very near future.

Sonnet shipping xMac mini server, Echo Express PCIe adapters to follow suit shortly

Sonnet shipping xMac mini server, Echo Express PCIe adapters to follow suit shortly

Sonnet’s no stranger to the Thunderbolt peripheral game and it now has three new Thor-approved expansions to ship. The Echo Express adapter packs one X4 mode PCIe 2.0 slot of the x16 flavor, an extra opening for a connector plate or a double-width card and clocks in at a sizeable $ 599. At a heftier $ 899, the Pro model sports two of the same slots and support configurations with larger cards. The externally powered aluminum housings each feature an extra Thunderbolt port to continue the daisy chain and ship out for duty on June 8th. Bent on turning your Mac mini into a server and have $ 1,295 squirreled away behind a rack? The xMac mini server 1U rackmount enclosure is replacing its older sibling and adds more PCIe 2.0 slot connectivity. Hit the source links for full tech specs on all three.

Intel’s PCI-E 910-Series SSD reviewed: blazing fast, even under pressure

first-review-for-intels-pci-e-910-series-ssd

Intel’s not one to mess around when it storms a new market, and its jump into enterprise-level PCI Express SSD seemed no exception. Now, a full review by Hot Hardware of its 400GB ($ 1,929) and 800GB ($ 3,859) 910-series confirms that while not as stupid-fast as some, the 2 GB/s read and 1 GB/s write speeds are still sublime. On top of that, throughput holds steady even when the device is besieged by thousands of IO demands. A lack of bootability and on-board RAID were complaints, but these SSDs are intended for datacenters, not your gaming PC. And for its target market, the lowish $ 4.82 price per GB and chart-topping 14 Petabyte max endurance are also endearing qualities. Given its history of SSD reliability, Intel is bound to draw a crowd of corporate admirers to its 910 series — even though it’s fashionably late to the boardroom.

PCIe 4.0 inches towards reality, hits 16 gigatransfers per second (that’s a thing, right?)

PCIe 4.0

Don’t get too excited just yet, but PCIe 4.0 is coming. PCI-SIG, the body that governs the standard, has announced the next evolution of the interface, which should start popping up in servers, desktops, laptops and even tablets around 2015. Sadly, details are pretty slim on the slot — final specs aren’t expected to be announced before 2014. All we know is that PCIe 4.0 will be able to perform 16 gigatransfers per second (GT/s), which tells us only slightly more than jack squat. It simply means that a PCIe 4.0 card will be capable of transferring 16 billion discrete chunks of data per second, twice that of PCIe 3.0. What that doesn’t tell us though, is the size of those chunks. If they’re the same size, 4.0 will provide double the current bit rate of 1 GB/s per-lane. If, for some reason, the channel width were halved there would be no speed increase — but we seriously doubt that’s the case. So, will we be looking at 32 GB/s PCIe 4.0 x16 GPUs in a few years? That is a definite maybe.

Super Talent debuts CoreStore MV, super small, super fast mini PCIe SSD

Super Talent is living up to its name today with the release of the world’s “smallest and fastest” mini PCIe SSD. When we last took a look at the company’s mini PCIe offerings, they were rocking 40MBps reads and 15MBps writes, but with the release of the new CoreStore SSD line, these exceptional storage makers have destroyed those 2009 specs with speeds topping out at 350MBps and 80MBps. The speedy CoreStore MV measures a mere 30mm x 50.95mm, combines Marvell’s latest controller with DDR ONFi 2 flash, and is compatible with netbooks, notebooks, and other devices sporting a second gen mini-PCIe slot. Those devices working a standard PCIe slot can expect 350MBps reads and 220MBps writes with MV’s big brother, the CoreStore MP. Both drives come in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB and should be available starting next month at an undisclosed price — though we figure true speed freaks will pay just about anything to get their fix. Jonesing for specs? Check out the source link below.

PCI Express makes the 3.0 leap, doubles bandwidth over PCIe 2.0 spec

First Bluetooth, then USB and now PCI Express. It’s clearly the era of version 3.0, and given that the PCI Express specification has been humming along at 2.0 speeds for over two years now, we’d say an update was definitely due. Thankfully, the PCI-SIG has announced the availability of the PCIe Base 3.0 specification to its members today, and the highlights are certainly notable. There’s a new 128b/130b encoding scheme and a data rate of 8 gigatransfers per second (GT/s), doubling the interconnect bandwidth over the PCIe 2.0 specification. And since we’re sure you’re fretting it, we’ll go ahead and affirm that it maintains backward compatibility with previous PCIe architectures. We’re also told that based on this data rate expansion, “it is possible for products designed to the PCIe 3.0 architecture to achieve bandwidth near 1 gigabyte per second (GB/s) in one direction on a single-lane (x1) configuration and scale to an aggregate approaching 32 GB/s on a sixteen-lane (x16) configuration.” A lot of technobabble, sure, but one thing’s for sure: your next graphics card is bound to murder your current one if paired with a PCIe 3.0 motherboard.

AngelBird’s PCIe SSD solution brings breakneck speeds, achievable prices, ‘incremental awesomeness’

Angelbird's PCIe SSD solution brings breakneck speeds, achievable prices, 'incremental awesomeness'

PCIe SSD solutions tend to be two things: stupidly fast and stupidly expensive. With read performance of up to 1GB/s and writes happening at up to 900MB/s the Angelbird Wings solution certainly has the speed. And, at a starting price of $ 239 for a 16GB model, the pricing isn’t too bad — for this sort of setup, anyway. What you’re getting for that money is an expandable PCIe controller board with slots for up to four SSDs of 120GB in size, each offering SandForce 1200 controllers. With one board you’ll get pedestrian read and write speeds of just under 300MB/s. But, with each new drive you basically multiply that, with the maximum figures quoted above coming with four. Interestingly, the controller comes with its own onboard Linux flavor called Virtue, a full UI that you can boot directly into and get all your RAID ducks in a row. Full cost for a fully kitted out system with four boards? $ 1399, which is hardly cheap for a mere 500GB or so of storage, but is a solid price for 1GB/s performance.
