    Anandtech: The Killer AX1650: A Wi-Fi 6 Chip Built on Intel

    One of the core criticisms of the Killer networking hardware has been hardware reliability and drivers. On the last generation product, the company did away with those by working with Intel, using Intel hardware, and Intel’s driver stack. Intel’s part of the deal was to include the hardware and IP from the Killer team in order to enable Killer’s features: Advanced Stream Detection, the Killer Intelligence Engine, and prioritization. This launch is in collaboration with Intel again, for the Wi-Fi 6 enabled AX1650 chip, available for integration in devices or as an M.2 module.

    Anandtech: Ampere Computing: Arm is Now an Investor

    The pipeline for Arm based server products has a few companies fighting for as much of the market as they can get – the server market is a big pie to consume, and not only do these companies have to tempt customers from x86, but they also have to compete with each other to get customers. Most of them do this by having highly focused and niche products, targeted to a few key select markets. Ampere is one of those companies, using the old AppliedMicro IP, and now the company has a solid presence in its investor lineup: Arm.

    Anandtech: Intel 9th Generation 8-Core 35W CPUs: Launch May 15th (Kikatek)

    It is always quite amusing when retailers pre-announce products before the company actually pushes out a press release. Embargo or not, the retailers want to advertise the fact they will be getting stock and want to sell early – in the gaming industry, people pre-order games, but in the PC industry, you rarely pre-order hardware. Nonetheless, today’s news comes from online retailer Kikatek, which has already listed all of Intel’s 9th Generation Core 35W CPUs as coming out on May 15th.

    Anandtech: The Zotac ZBOX CI660 nano Fanless mini-PC Review: A Promising HTPC Platfor

    Zotac is a major player in the SFF PC space, and the emergence of the ultra-compact form-factor (UCFF) NUCs has broadened the available market for ther mini-PCs. The company markets their passively-cooled machines under the C-series moniker. Their C-series nano units adopt a form-factor very similar to Intel's NUCs, providing performance and thermal efficiency commensurate with their size.
    The company's latest models, the CI6xx nano units, are based on the Kaby Lake-Refresh U-series SiPs, and they aim to improve on the older C-series units by adopting a larger form factor and adding more platform features. Today, we are taking a look at the ZBOX CI660 nano - Zotac's flagship in the CI6xx lineup.

    Anandtech: Huawei: No Communication with Apple About 5G Modems

    One of the most recent rumors swirling the technosphere has been who is going to be sourcing the modems for Apple’s first generation of 5G smartphones. Despite the fact that there appears to be at least six different companies planning to offer 5G modems over the next couple of years, only a few companies had ever been in the running to get an extensive Apple contract. Today, at Huawei’s Analyst Summit, Huawei took itself out of the running.

    Anandtech: Intel Acquires Omnitek: FPGA Video Acceleration and Inferencing

    One of the characteristics of Intel is its investment into new IP. This usually takes several forms, such as internal R&D, investing in other companies through Intel Capital, or outright acquisitions. Today Intel is announcing that is has acquired Omnitek, a UK based company that has a portfolio of video acceleration and inferencing IP built for FPGAs, as well as a customer base built on vertical integrations and custom solutions.

    Anandtech: GIGABYTE to Launch Aorus ATC800 CPU Cooler: A Beefy Tower

    An element of GIGABTYE’s CES booth this year was the way the company is pushing the Aorus brand into many different segments that it hasn’t historically played in. We’ve seen Aorus memory, Aorus storage, and now we are getting Aorus CPU cooling. The ATC800 is the next step in GIGABYTE’s world domination – a massive tower cooler with plenty of heatpipes and RGB.

    Anandtech: OWC Launches Aura Pro X2 NVMe SSD Upgrade For Macs

    Other World Computing (OWC) has launched a new line of NVMe SSD upgrades for several Mac models that used Apple's custom not-quite-M.2 form factor. The new Aura Pro X2 is OWC's third generation aftermarket storage upgrade for Apple's custom SSD form factor.
    Apple was an early adopter of PCIe SSDs in the consumer space, introducing them to several models in 2013. In recent years they have phased out the use of replaceable SSDs in favor of using their own SSD controller built in to the T2 security chip, but there is still a large install base of pre-TouchBar MacBook Pros and non-Retina MacBook Airs that can accept storage upgrades. Aftermarket upgrade options for these machines were initially very limited until macOS 10.13 added NVMe support, which allowed off the shelf M.2 NVMe drives to be used with a passive adapter—however, those adapters are a bit too thick for Apple's notebooks (they fit just fine in the cylinder Mac Pro).
    Before macOS supported NVMe, OWC provided the Aura SSD, which was essentially two SATA SSDs in RAID-0 behind a Marvell controller that only supported a PCIe 2.0 x2 host interface. The Aura's performance was poor, but it did offer the option of upgrading storage capacity, which was particularly useful for the MacBook Air models that never offered a factory 1TB SSD option. The Aura was followed up by the Aura Pro X based on the Silicon Motion SM2260 controller, which meant OWC was still struggling to offer better performance than the Samsung and SanDisk drives Apple shipped. The new Aura Pro X2 uses the Silicon Motion SM2262EN and offers performance and power efficiency on par with current high-end SSDs in standard M.2 form factors, and includes the first 2TB SSD in Apple's form factor.

    OWC sells the Aura Pro X2 as either a standalone drive or in an upgrade kit that includes their Envoy Pro USB enclosure for the stock SSDs the Aura Pro X2 replaces, and the necessary pentalobe and Torx screwdrivers to perform the upgrade. The upgrade kit is $70-80 more expensive than the bare drive.
    Prices for the Aura Pro X2 are quite steep compared to retail M.2 NVMe SSDs—they're more like what the MLC-based Samsung 970 PRO sells for, rather than in line with other TLC-based NVMe SSDs.
    We have a review sample of the 960GB Aura Pro X2 on hand. It has already completed most of our usual consumer SSD test suite and those results are available in our Bench database, but for the full review we'll also be doing some macOS testing.
