    AMD to Enable NVMe RAID on X399 Threadripper Platform

    ... because my workstation is starting to age, and the motherboard only supports 16GB max DRAM. The ramdisk is already sized at 14GB, which leaves only 2GB for the OS. (We don't buy new motherboards every 3 years :) TR is attractive because it should support multiple add-in RAID cards with...

    AMD to Enable NVMe RAID on X399 Threadripper Platform

    > Individuals probably won't use it much We have an approaching need to increase the size of our ramdisk, because we've run out of memory in our 16GB workstation. So, by going with a TR system and 32GB of DDR4, our ramdisk will then have plenty of room to grow. Using RamDisk Plus from...

    AMD to Enable NVMe RAID on X399 Threadripper Platform

    My questions have more to do with the NVMe ports that are currently available, and will be available on future motherboards with the X399 chipset. If I could be permitted to speculate a little bit about how AMD expects to support bootable RAID modes, for example, it could be that AMD is quietly...

    ASUS Z87-Deluxe/SATA-Express Detailed

    Instead of trying to persuade a large installed base to accept yet another expansion socket, my own studied opinion is that SATA Express is poorly conceived. With all major consumer SSDs now bumping against the "class ceiling" imposed by the 6G SATA-III clock and the obsolete 8b/10b "legacy...

    Cubitek Launches ''Magic Cube'' Modular Case Series

    They need an optional fourth "cube" to enclose an AT-style PSU with a separate ON/OFF switch. This will solve a few problems e.g. no need for extension cables when the cubes are separated, as in the photo with a monitor in between; and, some of us would like to house ramdisks like the...
