    Anandtech: Moto 5G Mod at Snapdragon Summit: Lots of Antennas, and S855 Inside?

    The first day at Qualcomm’s annual summit has been all about 5G, including infrastructure, carriers, partners, and OEMs. There hasn’t been so much about devices, except for the main one that has been announced: Motorola’s 5G mod for the Moto z3. When it was announced earlier this year, the main goal was to enable 5G connectivity, but at their demo today at the event, there are more than a few chips inside.

    Anandtech: Innodisk Launches M.2 Graphics Card with 4K Output

    Innodisk has released a graphics adapter in an M.2 form-factor. The card supports resolutions of up to 1920×1080 at 60 Hz or 3840×2160 at 30 Hz and is designed for various ultra-compact and embedded applications that require industrial temperature ranges.
    The Innodisk M.2-2280 graphics adapter is based on the Silicon Motion SM768 controller, presumably with 256 MB of embedded memory. For outputs the card offers three headers for HDMI, LVDS, and DVI-D signals. Under the hood the graphics processor has a 128-bit 2D engine, an ARM Cortex-R5 general-purpose core, a video decoder supporting a variety of formats (including H.264 MVC/AVS+, H.263, MPEG-4, MPEG2, M-JPEG, RealVideo, VC-1, & Theora), and a Content Adaptive Technology (CAT) engine for framebuffer compression. The SM768 can use a PCIe 2.0 x1/x2 or USB 3.0 interface, so it can support a variety of applications. Meanwhile, the version of the chip used by Innodisk can handle industrial grade temperatures from -40°C to +85°C.
    Innodisk’s M.2 graphics adapter can be used to add a display output to systems that physically cannot accommodate a graphics card and do not have enough connectors for monitors. Keeping in mind that such applications are pretty diverse and can run a variety of OSes, the adapter supports both Microsoft Windows and Linux-based operating systems.
    The manufacturer does not disclose MSRP of its M.2 graphics adapter, but companies do not usually reveal pricing of special-purpose hardware in general. The product is not listed yet, so it is unclear whether Innodisk can ship it straight away, or it will take some time before it polishes off its software.

    Anandtech: Western Digital Reveals SweRV RISC-V Core, Cache Coherency over Ethernet I

    Western Digital this week made three important announcements concerning its RISC-V-based processor initiative launched last year. The company introduced its own SweRV general-purpose core, its OmniXtend cache coherency over Ethernet technology, and the open-sourced SweRV Instruction Set Simulator (ISS). Western Digital expects that the hardware and software will be used for various solutions aimed at Big Data and Fast Data applications, including flash controllers and SSDs.
    Western Digital’s RISC-V SweRV core is a 32-bit in-order core featuring a 2-way superscalar design and a nine-stage pipeline. When implemented using a 28 nm process technology, the core runs at up to 1.8 GHz. As for simulated performance, the SweRV core delivers 4.9 CoreMark/MHz, which is a bit higher when compared to ARM’s Cortex-A15. Western Digital will use its RISC-V cores for its own embedded designs, such as flash controllers and SSDs. The company will also make it available as an open-source product to third parties starting from Q1 2019. The company hopes that by enabling third-parties to use the core it will help to drive adoption of the RISC-V architecture by harware and software developers eventually.
    Along with its own CPU core, Western Digital is also rolling out its OmniXtend cache coherent memory technology, which enables cache coherence over Ethernet .Co-developed with SiFive, the company expects its OmniXtend tech to be used for attaching persistent memory to processors, but it says that this memory-centric architecture could be used for other components, including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, and machine learning accelerators.
    Western Digital does not disclose maximum bandwidth its OmniXtend can provide but since we are dealing with Ethernet fabrics, it should not be slower than various versions of Ethernet in general. While the OmniXtend is open and available to various parties, it of course remains to be seen whether developers of the aforementioned components (accelerators, processors, etc.) actually decide to use the OmniXtend.
    Finally, Western Digital also rolled outs its open-sourced SweRV Instruction Set Simulator (ISS). The program enables software designers to simulate execution of their code on the SweRV cores, simplifying development of programs, which is greatly important to drive adoption of RISC-V.

    Anandtech: Canada Arrests Huawei CFO; Extradition Hearing to US Planned

    In a brief announcement released today, Canada’s Department of Justice has announced that it has arrested the Chief Financial Officer of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou. According to Canadian government, Meng was arrested on December 1st by request of the United States, who is seeking to have her extradited. A bail hearing is being planned for Friday to determine what will happen next.
    Outside of the arrest itself, very little information about the case is being released at this time, in large part because a publication ban that was requested by Meng. Canadian authorities for their part are not providing any details beyond the arrest, and various US news organizations have been unable to get a comment from US Department of Justice officials.
    Huawei itself has been increasingly on the rocks with the US for the past year. The company’s handset sales have all but come to a halt after AT&T backed out on a deal earlier this year. Meanwhile unconfirmed reports surfaced in April that the US was investigating Huawei for possibly violating Iran export bans, a scenario that got fellow Chinese firm ZTE into significant trouble earlier this year.
    Like ZTE, Huawei relies in part on US technology imports for its products, and per US export regulations, those products are in turn prohibited from being exported to Iran and other restricted nations. In the case of ZTE, the matter was only finally settled after the company underwent an extensive restructuring, as the United States government has made it clear that it intends to strongly enforce its export regulations. If Meng has been arrested for violating these restrictions, then this would mark the start of another significant technology export regulation case for the US.

    Anandtech: Sapphire’s GearBox Thunderbolt 3 eGFX Box w/ 500W PSU Now Available

    Sapphire has started sales of its external Thunderbolt 3 enclosure for video cards. The GearBox TB3 eGFX box can accommodate a high-end graphics card and also offers additional USB 3.0 Type-A and GbE ports. It is noteworthy that the box costs less than competing offerings and Sapphire also offers it with bundled graphics cards.
    Sapphire is a bit late to the eGFX party as most of leading suppliers of graphics cards have already released their Thunderbolt 3 eGFX boxes. However by no means is Sapphire cutting corners here. Being equipped with a 500 W custom power supply, the GearBox Thunderbolt 3 eGFX expansion chassis can accommodate full-length double-wide graphics cards up to 266 mm long, and a max power consumption of 300 W. Technically it can support even NVIDIA’s latest TITAN RTX graphics card if needed, as it has two 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
    The GearBox TB3 eGFX box can deliver up to 60 W of power to the host laptop over a TB3 interface, and provides a GbE connection as well as two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, which essentially means that the product can be used as an expansion dock for contemporary laptops.
    The design of Sapphire’s GearBox somewhat resembles that of Apple’s Mac Pro desktops from 2000s, yet it is evident that the chassis is considerably smaller. Meanwhile, the box has a blue LED on the front to emphasize its own color. The enclosure has its own dual-fan cooling system, which assists cooling system of the graphics card.
    Sapphire’s GearBox Thunderbolt 3 eGFX expansion chassis is now available from Amazon at $259, which is below its MSRP of $339. The box is also available with bundled Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 580 and Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 graphics cards for $538 – $578.
    Buy Sapphire Gearbox Thunderbolt 3 eGFX Enclosure on Amazon.com
