Seagate Unveils Ironwolf 110 2.5-inch SSDs for NAS

Seagate at CES 2019 unveiled its first NAS-grade solid state drives, under the Ironwolf 110 series. A "NAS-grade" HDD/SSD is typically that which has its durability or endurance rated halfway between client- and enterprise segments. The Ironwolf 110 series boasts of 1 DWPD endurance, and comes in capacities of up to 3.84 TB. Backing these endurance chops is a 5-year warranty. The drive is also designed keeping in mind the rigors of 24x7 operation and RAID environments. Although built in the 7 mm-thick 2.5-inch form-factor with SATA 6 Gbps interface, Seagate understands that a lot of home/SOHO NAS devices only feature 3.5-inch caddies. It's likely that these drives will include a simple accessory that lets you use them with 3.5-inch trays.

Available in capacities of 3.84 TB, 1.92 TB, 960 GB, 480 GB, and 240 GB, the Ironwolf 110 incorporates 3D TLC NAND flash memory. All variants are capable of up to 560 MB/s sequential reads, and barring the 240 GB variant that writes at up to 345 MB/s, all variants offer up to 535 MB/s sequential writes. The 4K random access read performance ranges between 85,000 to 90,000 IOPS for the 960 GB thru 3.84 TB variants, and between 55,000 to 75,000 IOPS for the 240 thru 480 GB ones.

Taking a Closer Look at Lenovo's Legion Y740 and Y540 Laptops

While we covered some of Lenovo's products at CES already, we took a closer look at the Legion series of laptops which includes the Y740 and Y540 models. The Y740 comes in 17-inch and 15.6-inch flavors and is the offering most likely to intrigue enthusiast gamers as it comes with up to an Intel Core i7-8750H processor which has 6c/12t, 2.2 GHz base clock and 4.1 GHz boost clocks. To go with that is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q for that should have no problems delivering an exceptional gaming experience considering Lenovo has paired it with a solid 1080p, 300 nits, 144 Hz, G-Sync display. Potential buyers also have the choice of a Dolby Vision HDR 400 500 nit display as well. Memory capacity ranges from 8 GB all the way to 32 GB of 2666 MHz DDR4. The choice for faster 3200 MHz Corsair memory is also available.

When it comes to storage, there are multiple choices including up to a 512 GB PCIe SSD/ 512 GB SATA SSD or 2TB HDD. Powering it all is a 57 Wh 3 cell battery in the 15.6-inch model while the 17-inch gets a 76 Wh 4 cell battery. All told the unit's base configuration starts at 2.2 kg / 4.8 lbs and 2.9 kg / 6.3 lbs for the 15.6-inch and 17-inch respectively. In terms of size the smaller of the two measures 362 x 267 x 19.95 mm (14.2 x 10.5 x 0.78 inches) while the larger offering is 413 x 305 x 21.95 mm (16.25 x 12 x 0.66 inches). Connectivity options are quite plentiful on the Y740 and include 1x USB-C ( Thunderbolt, DisplayPort, USB 3.1), 1x HDMI, 1x LAN, 3x USB 3.1 Gen2 and finally a single mini-DP port. Other features include an anti-ghost Corsair ICUE RGB backlit keyboard, RGB chassis lighting, Killer WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and a solid aluminum chassis. The Lenovo Y740 should be available starting in February.

Alphacool Shows Off All New Eisball Pump/Reservoir Combo

Alphacool showed off an entirely new pump/reservoir combo at CES 2019, which they dubbed the Eisball. Just a quick look at this thing will tell you it is like nothing else you have seen before. Paired with their VP755 V3 pump which was recently updated, means not only is it entirely new from the ground up, it also has a truly unique appearance. Of course no product is complete without RGB LEDs, and the Eisball is no exception with the metal ring located on the outside hiding them from prying eyes while delivering bright illumination that will have no problems being visible in any case with a window.

All cabling for the LEDs and pump are thankfully sleeved in black which which is nice since no one likes mustard and ketchup cabling. There are four ports located on the unit two of which are on the front bottom and are clearly marked inlet and outlet, while another port is located on the opposite side. The last port is in the obvious location which is up top. In general, the Eisball is a unique pump/reservoir combo that will likely garner more than a few looks at CES this year. That said, all I can see when I look at it is R2D2 maybe I am just crazy? Let me know in the comments.

Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme 280 mm AIO on Display at CES 2019

While we covered the Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme at Computex earlier this year, it was once again on display at CES 2019. This sleek and fully encased 280 mm all-in-one liquid cooler comes ready-to-go out of the box and features an expandable all copper design. Rather than use ordinary fans, Alphacool has partnered with be quiet! to deliver high-quality, low noise cooling with two 140 mm Silent Wing 3 fans taking center stage. They max out at 1300 RPM. The quick release fittings provided for expansion with Eisbaer ready products have also seen improvements in terms of appearance. They now come in all black and are smooth, compared to more angular red and blue color coded versions seen on the Eisbaer LT. The matte black tubing features a high kink resistance, while the rest of the fittings are of course industry standard G1/4".

Cooling of the CPU is handled by Alphacool's Eisblock XPX which is the same here as what they sell directly for those building custom loops. Too keep coolant flowing Alphacool has paired the Eisbaer Extreme with their latest VPP755 pump which supports PWM functionality. In order to keep the entire unit looking clean Alphacool has encased it in an all aluminum housing that encloses and protects the radiator, fans, pump, and reservoir. The system is also fully compatible with Alphacools entire family of Eisbaer ready porducts. Availability is expected soon.

Be Quiet Unveils Six New Products at CES 2019

Be Quiet invited us to its product unveil suite on the sidelines of CES 2019. The company unveiled six new products, most of which are variations or improvements of existing products in the company's stack. The lineup begins with Dark Base 700 White Edition, limited-edition (3,000 units) ATX mid-tower. The case combines all-white interiors with mostly-white exteriors, black mesh accents along the sides, with RGB LED embellishments, and clear tempered glass. The case retains the remaining feature-set from the Dark Base 700, and is expected to be priced at 189.95€.

Also shown here is a Dark Rock Slim 120 tower-type CPU cooler with a single fan. This cooler is rated to handle thermal loads of up to 180 W (TDP), and hence only supports mainstream-desktop CPU sockets such as LGA115x, AM4, and probably even LGA2066. The fin-stack features a high-clearance fin design that curves inward. Slated for Q2-2019, the cooled is expected to be priced around 50€. Three color variants of the company's existing fan lineup were shown, including matte-black and all-white variants of Shadow Wings 2, and a new high-RPM version of Pure Wings 2, with up to 1,600 RPM for the 140 mm variant, and up to 2,000 RPM for the 120 mm one. Available from January 2019 (later this month), prices of these fans could range between 12.50-13.90€.

Corsair Capellix LED Technology to Increase "Resolution" of RGB LED Setups

Capellix is the second of Corsair's two big innovations unveiled at CES 2019, the other being the Slipstream wireless technology. Capellix is a new LED that is considerably smaller than a conventional surface-mount (SMD) RGB LED, with a volume of just 0.2 mm³ versus 2.8 mm³ of SMD LEDs. Such small sizes are achieved by stripping away the package layer of the diode, and bringing its substrate layer directly in touch with the PCB. Corsair has some big numbers to speak for Capellix.

A Capellix LED, according to Corsair, is up to 60 percent brighter, up to 60 percent more efficient, up to 40 percent lower power-draw, and has up to 35 percent higher service life than an SMD LED. Its smaller size also lets designers place more of them in a limited PCB area, increasing the number of diodes putting out light through a silicone or acrylic diffuser, thereby increasing the "resolution" if you will, of the RGB LED embellishment. The biggest use-case of these diodes, however, would be wireless peripherals, which could benefit from the lower power draw to improve battery life. Corsair will implement Capellix across its entire lineup of RGB LED illuminated products, including memory modules, case fans, wireless gaming peripherals,

Corsair Details Slipstream, Unique New Wireless Peripheral Technology

Corsair at its CES 2019 presser detailed key in-house, under-the-hood innovations that will be part of its gaming peripherals for years to come. The first of these is called Slipstream, and is developed to improve latencies (in turn responsiveness) of wireless gaming peripherals such as keyboards, mice, and even headsets. It combines existing physical-layer technologies such as 2.4 GHz radio, with a proprietary protocol-layer by Corsair that delivers twice the packets per millisecond, thereby reducing latency. This protocol-layer is different from Bluetooth, although all Slipstream devices will maintain compatibility with Bluetooth.

At the heart of what Corsair is trying to do, is a technique called IFS (intelligent frequency switching), a process that continuously scans the spectrum for radio channels that are most optimal (have least interference and best strength), and switches to that frequency/channel. This switching happens at a sub-millisecond rate, and the effective response-times claimed by Corsair are impressive - 0.5 ms to move a packet of data from the peripheral to the receiver (or vice versa). Corsair is also working on improving wireless signal strength of all devices that implement Slipstream, so your peripherals can work flawlessly up to 20 meters (65 ft) away from your PC (bodes well for living room gamers).

HP Omen X Emperium 65 is the FIRST NVIDIA BFGD Product: 4K, HDR, G-SYNC, 144 Hz for $4,999

Product context: HP showcased their new and upcoming Omen X Emperium 65 at CES, an NVIDIA BFGD (Big Format Gaming Display) with all the features the company deems premium and attractive to gamers: 4K resolution, a huge, 65" diagonal AMVA panel, HDR (1,000 nits of peak luminance and 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color gamut) , G-Sync, and 120 - 144Hz refresh rate (144 Hz is overclocked) with a gray-to-gray response time is rated for 4ms. It features an incorporated sound bar with 120 W of power and three amps. An integrated NVIDIA Shield makes an appearance as well as a multimedia juggernaut solution. All of this in a $4,999 body, launching in February 2019.

Thoughts: Rollback. A $4,999 price-tag. Maybe this is just me, but NVIDIA seems to be finally introducing their BFGDs at the worst possible time, considering the company has just formally announced that their GeForce graphics cards would be finally supporting VESA's VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) standard. This brings with it FreeSync support - for monitors and, we'd expect, TV's as well, considering that the driver solution will be toggable by users even in a non-NVIDIA certified display.

Lenovo Confirms Mobile GeForce GTX 1160 GPU, Or Does It?

It was about 6 months ago that we posted a news story about how a Lenovo representative mentioned that the successor to NVIDIA's GeForce 10-series of GPUs would be named the 11-series. Fast forward in time, we know how that turned out with the recently announced RTX 20-series instead. The rumor mill has not taken a break over the holidays, however, with consistent postings and speculation online about how NVIDIA will announce not only the RTX 2060 at CES 2019, but also a whole new GTX 11-series accompanying it that is aimed to meet gaming needs without real-time ray tracing support and at a lower price point respective to the equivalent RTX SKU.

Perhaps it is fitting that Lenovo provides more fuel to this fire once again, with a listing of a mobile GeForce GTX 1160 (N18E) graphic solution on their upcoming Legion Y530 and Y7000P laptops. VideoCardz.com was quick to capture a screenshot of the specs listing, seen below, that describes it as a "next generation GPU", albeit with an asterisk hinting that the specification may not be final. Indeed, Lenovo has since changed the description on that product page to remove all signs of said 11-series mobile GPUs, and the LaptopMedia specs database for the Legion Y530 also now mentions a "GTX 2060" with 6 GB of VRAM instead. The only thing we know for sure is that we are not sure of anything, and it may well be that a GeForce 11-series, if it even exists, is a mobile-only platform. Hopefully CES will shed more light on this matter, and stay tuned for our coverage of the event accordingly.

LG to Unveil New Gram Laptops at CES 2019

It appears that releases from CES are already making their way in the press even before the year ends. We learned of LG's new "Ultra" series monitors recently, and now we get to know about their plans from the laptops business unit. Their Gram lineup was developed to feature lightweight portable laptops with enhanced user experience in mind, and joining the series in 2019 are the 14-inch LG Gram 2-in-1 (model 14T990) and the new LG Gram 17 (model 17Z990), both of which are 2019 CES Innovation Award winners.

The 14" Gram 2-in-1 is a convertible, shifting from tablet to laptop at the whim of the user. It features a 360° hinge coupled with a touch screen to add more use cases in between. This by itself is not necessarily new or unique to the market, but a welcome addition to fans of the LG brand nonetheless. The company wants to also assure the customer that the laptop is built to last, having met the U.S. military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability. Part of this no doubt comes from the incorporation of Corning's Gorilla Glass 5 on the touch screen, and the display underneath uses LG's IPS technology. More information on this, and the Gram 17, following the break.

LG to Launch New "Ultra" Monitor Lineup at CES 2019

LG at CES 2019 is set to announce two new monitors on its "Ultra" lineup, which includes the UltraWide and UltraGear product lines. The UltraWide is pretty self-explanatory, and will be populated by the 49WL95 monitor, a 49" IPS, dual QHD (5120 x 1440) resolution panel with a 32:9 aspect ratio (there's support for up to three PbP modes simultaneously, thus making this a triple monitor setup, should you so choose). 99% coverage of the sRGB color space ensures faithful color reproduction. There's also support for HDR10 content, though the typical brightness of the monitor stands at 350 nits (peak brightness not disclosed). Connectors stand at 1x USB-C, 2x HDMI 1x DP, and 4x USB 3.0.

The second monitor is on LGs UltraGear lineup. The 38GL950G features LG's Nano IPS technology and support for NVIDIA G-Sync and 144 Hz refresh rate. It has a 38" diagonal across a curved panel, a WQHD+ (3840 x 1600) resolution, and a more standard (or is that less wide?) 21:9 aspect ratio. A typical 450 nits brightness means this monitor also supports HDR content, and connectors include 1x HDMI, 1x DP, and 3x USB 3.0 (1 up / 2 down). If any of these monitor ticks your "I want it now" boxes, you might want to wait until CES for the actual announcement and availability info.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 and 2080 Mobile Could Make an Appearance at CES 2019

With NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 20-series having already released for desktops, it was only a matter of time until laptops got the RTX treatment as well. Current rumors are suggesting that Nvidia will officially launch their GeForce RTX 20-series mobility GPUs on January 6th at CES with the RTX 2070 and RTX 2070 Max-Q taking center stage. An embargo date of January 26th has also been set, with NVIDIA delaying their final release drivers until then. Meaning final performance results for the new mobile GPUs won't be available until after the embargo date, which should coincide with the general availability of RTX 20-series equipped laptops.

Along with the RTX 2070 and 2070 Max-Q mobility parts, the flagship RTX 2080 Max-Q which isn't expected at the show, is still in the works, with its TU104M 1eab device ID having been leaked earlier. The rest of the GeForce 20-series mobility GPUs are likely to use the GTX moniker if NVIDIA's desktop lineup is anything to go by; however, that is merely speculation at this point.
