Audeze Announces Manny Marroquin Signature Series MM-500 Planar Magnetic Headphones

Audeze is a brand extensively covered on TechPowerUp and renowned for its planar magnetic headphones and in-ear monitors. With the recently announced flagship class LCD-5, the company unveiled the culmination of several years of R&D and new technology packed into a $4500 set of headphones that is understandably well beyond the reach of the average end user, however in a working example of trickle-down technology we see today two announcements that help in this aspect while showcasing also what's to come from the USA-based audio brand. First up, Audeze announced 11-time Grammy award-winning engineer/producer Manny Marroquin as its new Head of Professional Products, with Marroquin aiming to bring his music industry and production experience to the Audeze team. Audeze and Manny Marroquin are collaborating to create a new series of audio products—called the MM Series—focused on using cutting-edge technology and engineering to deliver better results more efficiently for working audio professionals.

The first of the products under the MM Series also launched alongside in the form of the MM-500, which takes several cues from the LCD-5. It features a new chassis design for comfort over long sessions at a reduced mass of 495 grams compared to the 600+ g heavyweights under the Audeze umbrella. The MM-500 is designed to perform both inside and outside the studio, with low impedance and high sensitivity that make it easy to drive from any console, interface or laptop. It is an open-back, over-ear set of planar magnetic headphones with Audeze's Uniforce voice coil over an ultra-thin diaphragm, and utilizes Fazor waveguides coupled with Fluxor magnets. The transducer is 90 mm in size and the use of the LCD-5 style frame and headband design combined with single-sided magnets also indicates the MM-500 is going to be a force to be reckoned with in the prosumer and audiophile market. The Audeze MM-500 costs $1699 and will be available for purchase soon. Read past the break for reactions on the collboration as well as more information about the new product itself.

NVIDIA Launches RTX A2000: GA106, 3328 Cores, 6 GB, Low-Profile, $450

With its powerful real-time raytracing and AI acceleration capabilities, NVIDIA RTX technology has transformed design and visualization workflows for the most complex tasks, like designing airplanes and automobiles, visual effects in movies and large-scale architectural design. The new NVIDIA RTX A2000—our most compact, power-efficient GPU for a wide range of standard and small-form-factor workstations—makes it easier to access RTX from anywhere.

The RTX A2000 is designed for everyday workflows, so professionals can develop photorealistic renderings, build physically accurate simulations and use AI-accelerated tools. With it, artists can create beautiful 3D worlds, architects can design and virtually explore the next generation of smart buildings and homes, and engineers can create energy-efficient and autonomous vehicles that will drive us into the future. The GPU has 6 GB of memory capacity with error correction code (ECC) to maintain data integrity for uncompromised computing accuracy and reliability, which especially benefits the healthcare and financial services fields.

Editor's Note: The RTX A2000 desktop is completely different to the RTX A2000 for mobile. A2000 mobile is built using GA107, with 2560 GPU cores, 32 ROPs, 4 GB GDDR6 128-bit, the desktop A2000 uses GA106, 3328 cores, 48 ROPs, 6 GB GDDR6 192 bit.

TerraMaster Announces F2-210 and F4-210 SOHO NAS

For professionals with specific needs, using a NAS will improve your productivity and protect you better from data loss and avoid costly data recovery services. For small office and home office setups, the TerraMaster 2-bay and 4-bay NAS models are perfect and below $300. Professionals working at home or in a small office need reliable storage to store data.

Furthermore, data storage should not hinder productivity and creativity.

For professional individuals, a typical computer setup would suffice their needs. However, traditional data storage options such as HDD/SSD and portable storage drives come with limitations and vulnerabilities. This is where Network-Attached Storage, popularly known as NAS, come into play. NAS devices offer robust protection plus a few extras that traditional storage drives don't offer. NAS can be tailored to a user's specific needs that will help improve workflow and productivity.

AOC Releases Three New High Resolution Professional Monitors

Display specialist AOC extends its portfolio of P2 series professional displays with three new models: the 31.5" (80 cm) U32P2 with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels), the 31.5" Q32P2 with QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) and the 28" (71.1 cm) U28P2A, also with 4K UHD resolution. For increased productivity when working at home or in the office, these monitors offer sizeable screen real estate, a height-adjustable stand with portrait orientation option, and a built-in USB hub to easily connect peripherals. Thanks to the Adaptive-Sync support to match the graphic card's framerate with the monitor's refresh rate, stuttering and tearing is eliminated.

NVIDIA Announces RTX A6000 48 GB Professional Graphics Card Accelerators

NVIDIA today announced their RTX A6000 series of graphics cards, meant to perform as graphics accelerators for professional workloads. And the announcement marks a big departure for the company's marketing, as the Quadro moniker has apparently been dropped. The RTX A6000 includes all raytracing resources also present on consumer RTX graphics cards, and marks a product segmentation from the company's datacenter-geared A40. The RTXA6000 features a full-blown GA102 chip - meaning 10752 CUDA cores powering single-precision compute performance of up to 38.7 TFLOPs (3.1 TLFOPs higher than that of the GeForce RTX 3090). Besides offering NVIDIA's professional driver support and features, the RTX A6000 features 48 GB of GDDR6 (note the absence of the X) memory - ensuring everything and the kitchen sink can be stored in the cards' VRAM. GDDR6X doesn't currently offer the per-chip density of GDDR6 solution, hence why NVIDIA opted for the lower-performing, yet denser memory variant.

The RTX A6000 features a classic blower-type cooler, and presents a new low-profile NVLink bridge that enables two of them to work in tandem within the same system. NVIDIA vGPU virtualization technologies are supported as well; display outputs are taken care of by 4x DisplayPort connectors, marking the absence of HDMI solutions. The card is currently listed for preorder at a cool and collected $5,500, but with insufficient silicon to offer even to its highest-margin datacenter customers, it remains to be seen exactly how available these will be in the market.

AMD Announces Radeon Pro VII Graphics Card, Brings Back Multi-GPU Bridge

AMD today announced its Radeon Pro VII professional graphics card targeting 3D artists, engineering professionals, broadcast media professionals, and HPC researchers. The card is based on AMD's "Vega 20" multi-chip module that incorporates a 7 nm (TSMC N7) GPU die, along with a 4096-bit wide HBM2 memory interface, and four memory stacks adding up to 16 GB of video memory. The GPU die is configured with 3,840 stream processors across 60 compute units, 240 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. The card is built in a workstation-optimized add-on card form-factor (rear-facing power connectors and lateral-blower cooling solution).

What separates the Radeon Pro VII from last year's Radeon VII is full double precision floating point support, which is 1:2 FP32 throughput compared to the Radeon VII, which is locked to 1:4 FP32. Specifically, the Radeon Pro VII offers 6.55 TFLOPs double-precision floating point performance (vs. 3.36 TFLOPs on the Radeon VII). Another major difference is the physical Infinity Fabric bridge interface, which lets you pair up to two of these cards in a multi-GPU setup to double the memory capacity, to 32 GB. Each GPU has two Infinity Fabric links, running at 1333 MHz, with a per-direction bandwidth of 42 GB/s. This brings the total bidirectional bandwidth to a whopping 168 GB/s—more than twice the PCIe 4.0 x16 limit of 64 GB/s.

HP Unveils new ZBook Studio and ZBook Create Notebooks
