PCIe 7.0 also made an appearance
It is Samsung's first new mid-range consumer SSD launch in nearly five years
New Intel processors and Thunderbolt 5 are coming later in 2024
The 990 EVO will be Samsung's first new mid-range consumer SSD launch in nearly five years
A passively cooled tower with heatpipes
Not that you would, but you could: When details regarding a graphics card with an integrated M.2 slot emerged earlier this year, the purpose of the unusual feature was unclear. This week, a proper unveiling from Asus shed light on the advantages of connecting additional motherboard components to a GPU.
Arriving next month
Possible maximum transfer speeds of 2GB/s
First-ever dual-slot storage AIB allows improved heat dissipation
A 20 percent boost over the model released in April
The draft connector design is intended to safely support cards drawing upwards of 675 watts
New specification quadruples PCIe 5.0 bandwidth, with supporting hardware coming after 2025
This will definitely have trouble fitting on some motherboards
Here we go again: Half a year after Nvidia's last official statement regarding damaged RTX 4090 cable adapters, new cases indicate the problem hasn't faded. The blame has been passed between Nvidia, user error, and the specification publisher. Switching to ATX 3.0 power supplies is still the safest bet.
PCI Express has been around for 20 years, and with no sign of it being replaced any time soon, we dive into the technology to see what makes it so special.
Go ahead and get that optional heatsink
No more fiddling with tiny screws
Gigabytes' Aorus 10000 is the first PCIe 5.0 SSD and, as expected, the speeds are nothing less than amazing. You'll need the latest hardware to take advantage of it though, and look at that gargantuan passive heatsink.
New laptops also feature Raptor Lake CPUs and Ada Lovelace GPUs
PCI consortium says safety is up to manufacturers
Already nearly 2x the speed of PCIe 4.0 SSDs
