    Anandtech: Need for Speed: The LG UltraGear (27GN750) 240 Hz IPS Monitor with G-Sync

    LG has expanded its family of UltraGear displays aimed at hardcore and esports gamers. The newest model, the UltraGear 27GN750, supports a 240 Hz maximum refresh rate as well as NVIDIA’s G-Sync variable refresh rate technology. The LG UltraGear 27GN750 is the industry’s first IPS monitor featuring such a high refresh rate along with the G-Sync technology.
    Based on the so-called ‘fast IPS’ 27-inch panel, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has a 1920×1080 resolution, 400 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 178°/178° viewing angles, a 1 ms GtG response time, and a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz supported by NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. Unfortunatelly, LG does not disclose the range of the VRR supported by the LCD.
    The 27-inch gaming monitor can display 16.78 million of colors and can reproduce 99% of the sRGB color space. Furthermore, it also carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 400 badge and therefore supports HDR10 transport.
    Because LG’s UltraGear monitors are designed predominantly for gamers, they support numerous features aimed at this audience, including LG’s Dynamic Action Sync mode, Black Stabilizer, and Crosshair.
    As far as connectivity is concerned, the LG UltraGear 27GN750 has one DisplayPort, two HDMI inputs, as well as a dual-port USB hub.

    Being one of the leading makers of high-end displays and offering hundreds of models, LG introduced its separate UltraGear brand targeted at demanding gamers only in mid-2019, somehow later than its competitors. The addition of the rather unique (as of today) UltraGear 27GN750 featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate enables the company to address a new market segment of gamers that require maximum performance yet demand quality of an IPS panel. In fact, this is the world’s second IPS LCD featuring a 240 Hz refresh rate and its only competitor is Dell's Alienware 27 model AW2720HF.

    Anandtech: Matrox Acquired by Co-Founder

    Matrox on Monday announced that Lorne Trottier, a co-founder of Matrox, has acquired 100% ownership of the Matrox group of companies, which includes three divisions: Matrox Imaging, Matrox Graphics, and Matrox Video.
    Founded in 1976 by Lorne Trottier and Branko Mati?, Matrox may not be a widely-known name among the PC crowd these days as it has been years since the company released its own GPU and essentially quit the market of consumer graphics cards. Back in the day, Matrox’s Parhelia and Millennium G400/G450/G550 graphics cards provided superior 2D image quality (something that was very important back in the CRT era), but failed to offer competitive performance in 3D games. This failure led the company to leave the market of consumer graphics cards and focus on niche markets instead. Back in 2014 Matrox officially ceased to design its own graphics processor IP and has been using AMD’s Radeon GPUs coupled with its renowned software since then.
    In fact, when it comes to multi-display graphics cards and other graphics solutions for various purposes as well as for specialized niche solutions for video and imaging applications, Matrox has rather unique offerings. Serving aerospace, broadcast, financial, cinematography, digital signage, and other industries, Matrox almost certainly earns good profit margins.
    It is hard to say how change of the ownership will affect product development and roadmap of Matrox, but usually such changes focuse the companies on their key products, which enables growth.
    Since Matrox has always been a privately held company, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
    Here is what Lorne Trottier had to say:
    “This next phase represents a renewed commitment to our valued customers, suppliers, and business partners, as well as to our 700 dedicated employees worldwide. At Matrox, our culture is defined by our passion for technological innovation and product development. We maintain the highest degree of corporate responsibility vis-a-vis production quality and industry standards. I am extremely proud of our accomplishments over our 40-plus-year history and would like to thank my co-founder for his contributions.”
    He added:
    “I look forward to championing a corporate culture defined by forward-thinking business practices, transparency, and teamwork. I am excited to lead this great organization as we implement growth initiatives. Matrox is a great Canadian success story. We owe this success and our bright prospects to the talented and dedicated people at all levels of this organization.”

    Anandtech: Patriot Launches Viper VP4100 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs: Up to 5 GB/s

    Patriot’s Viper Gaming division this week officially introduced its first PCIe 4.0 SSDs, several weeks ahead of schedule. The Viper VP4100 drives use Phison’s PS5016-E16 controller and generally resembles competing products. However, because of a custom firmware, the SSDs may differ a bit as compared to other E16 drives.
    Available in 1 TB as well as 2 TB configurations and equipped with Phison’s PS5016-E16 controller as well as 3D TLC NAND memory, the Patriot Viper VP4100 is rated for up to 5000 MB/s sequential read speeds, up to 4400 MB/s sequential write speeds, as well an 800K peak read/write random IOPS. While the rated sequential write speed of the VP4100 is 100 MB/s lower than other drives based on the same controller, its rated random read/write performance is 50K IOPS higher, which looks like a reasonable tradeoff because random speeds usually have a more significant impact on end user experience.

    Anandtech: MSIís Prestige PC341WU 5K 34-Inch Professional Monitor Now Available

    MSI entered the display market just a couple of years ago, and relatively rare for the the commodity-driven monitor market, MSI has opted to spend a good deal of effort putting together monitors to address niche markets. One of such monitors is the Prestige PC341WU, a 5K LCD designed for professional/prosumer users who require high color accuracy.
    MSI’s Prestige PC341WU uses LG’s 34-inch Nano-IPS panel, which is a 21:9 aspect ratio panel with a 5120×2160 resolution. The monitor sports a 450 nits typical brightness, 600 nits peak brightness, a 1200:1 contrast ratio, a 8 ms response time, and a 60 Hz refresh rate. Being a professional monitor, the LCD can display 1.07 billion colors (8-Bit+FRC) and reproduce 100% of the sRGB and 98% of the DCI-P3 color spaces. Furthermore, the monitor carries VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 badge, so it has to support at least HDR10. Unfortunately, MSI doesn't list anything about factory calibration for the display.
    The ultra-wide 5K monitor offers DisplayPort, HDMI, and USB Type-C inputs. This allows it to be compatible with all PCs available today, including those that only feature Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C ports. In addition, the LCD has a dual-port USB 3.0 hub, an SD card reader, and audio connectors.
    Like other professional-grade monitors, the MSI Prestige PC341 supports Picture-in-Picture (PIP) and Picture-by-Picture (PBP) capabilities that are required by those who connect more than one PCs to a single display. Also, it features a special Creator OSD to enable professional to fine-tune the monitor for their needs. Last but not least, the LCD comes with an adjustable stand that can regulate height, tilt, and swivel.
    The Prestige PC341WU will be available in the US starting from September 16, 2019, at an MSRP of $1,199.99. For a limited time, before the end of this month, B&H will offer the display with a $200 gift card.

    Anandtech: Giveaway: QNAP TS-932X NAS & Seagate IronWolf Drive Bundle

    We’re back this week with another giveaway, this time courtesy of Seagate. After giving away some of their new Ironwolf 110 SSDs a couple of months back, this month the company has decided to up the ante. Rather than just giving away the SSDs, this time the company will be giving away a complete NAS setup, comprised of QNAP TS-932X-2G 9 bay NAS, as well as one of each of Seagate’s IronWolf Pro 16GB HDD and Ironwolf 110 240GB SSD.
    Starting things off, we have QNAP’s TS-932X-2G, a business-class NAS. This is one of the company’s compact 9 bay NASes, sporting 5 3.5-inch SATA drive bays along with another 4 2.5-inch SATA bays. The NAS is designed particularly for tiered storage, with the 3.5-inch bays being ideal for HDDs, while the 2.5-inch bays can hold SSDs (or in a pinch, 2.5-inch HDDs). Under the hood, the 932X is based on a quad core ARM Cortex A57-based SoC, the Alpine AL-324, which runs at 1.7GHz. This specific model comes with 2GB of DDR4 pre-installed in the single SO-DIMM slot, though it can be upgraded.
    In terms of I/O, the NAS comes with a trio of USB 3.0 Type-A ports, among other things. But perhaps the most interesting feature here is the NAS’s Ethernet support: a pair of GigE RJ45 ports, along with a pair of 10GigE SFP+ ports. Owing to its business-focused design, QNAP has opted for SFP+ ports, which means that the NAS can be equipped with any of several different flavors of 10GigE depending on what kind of cabling you’d like to use. The one downside to this is that it means the ports aren’t actually usable without buying a transceiver, so there’s an additional cost (10GBASE-T transceivers are ~$50) before 10GigE is actual usable.

    Seagate IronWolf HDD & SSD

    Meanwhile from Seagate, we have a pair of IronWolf drives from them. For mass storage, the company is including their top capacity 16TB IronWolf HDD. A recently launched product from the company, the 16TB IronWolf is a helium-based 7200 RPM drive, and the highest capacity IronWolf drive from the company to date. As part of the IronWolf family it’s specifically designed for use in NASes, incorporating the necessary sensors and low-vibrational design to best handle being packed in tight with a number of other actively running HDDs.
    Seagate is also including one of their IronWolf SSDs as well, the 240GB version of the IronWolf 110. The drives, based on 3D TLC NAND with sustained performance numbers of 560 / 535 MBps sequential reads / writes, support a relatively hearty 1 DWPD endurance, despite the usual read-heavy scenarios that NASes drive. This makes them well suited for use as cache drives, which is exactly what Seagate is going for in this giveaway with the QNAP NAS.

    Anandtech: Arm Joins CXL Consortium

    Arm has officially joined the Compute Express Link (CXL) Consortium in a bid to enable its customers to implement the new CPU-to-Device interconnect and contribute to the specification. Arm was among a few major technology companies that was yet to join the CXL consortium and given the number of chips that use Arm’s IP, its support is hard to overestimate.
    Arm is not completely new to CXL. The company has been participating in CXL workgroups and has provided technological and promotional resources to support development of the technology. The formal joining of the CXL consortium indicates the company’s commitment to provide its customers a full software framework to CXL, though the company does not say anything about plans to add appropriate logic to its upcoming AMBA PCIe Gen 5 PHY implementations.
    Arm is a board member in the PCI SIG and the Gen-Z Consortium. Besides, the company supports its own CCIX interface for inter-package chip-to-chip interface. By supporting CXL, Arm will enable its clients to build CPUs or accelerators that support low-latency cache coherency as well as memory semantics between processors and accelerators.
    Arm says that CCIX, which supports full cache coherency, will be used as an inter-package chip-to-chip interface for heterogeneous system-on-packages. Meanwhile, since this functionality is not in the scope of CXL at present, it will not compete against Arm’s version of CCIX.

    Anandtech: The Xiaomi Mi9 Review: Flagship Performance At a Mid-Range Price

    We’re edging towards to latter half of 2019 and the next and last upcoming wave of device releases, however among the many device releases of the year one device we missed to review was the new Xiaomi Mi9. The phone was amongst the earliest releases of the year, being actually representing one of the first Snapdragon 855 devices announced back in February.
    Xiaomi’s always been an interesting vendor that stood out alongside Huawei as one of the bigger Chinese vendors that have a larger presence in the west. Particularly last year and especially this year Xiaomi has made a lot of progress in terms of their push in European markets by officially releasing and offering their flagship devices in different market. The Mi9, as opposed to past iterations, thus no longer represents being a special case or import device, but rather a simple official Amazon purchase.
    Today the Mi9 can be had for even less than its original 445€ launch price, being available for less than 400€, whilst still offering flagship performance, a triple camera setup, a great screen, all in a compact and attractive package. We’ll go over the device and exactly investigate how Xiaomi is able to offer such hardware at a low price, if there’s compromises and where they lie.

    Anandtech: Industry's First MAMR HDD Announced: Western Digital Reveals 18 TB DC HC55

    Western Digital has formally announced the industry’s first hard drives featuring microwave assisted magnetic recording (MAMR) technology. Kicking things off with capacities of 16 TB and 18 TB, the Ultrastar DC HC550 HDDs are designed to offer consistent performance at high capacities and will be available to interested parties in 2020.
    The Western Digital Ultrastar DC HC550 18 TB 3.5-inch hard drive relies on the company’s 6th Generation helium-filled HelioSeal platform. The key technology advancement with the new drives work is MAMR technology, which WD is using to build 2TB platters. The 18 TB model, in turn, features 9 of these platters.
    Since we are dealing with a brand-new platform, the Ultrastar DC HC550 also includes several other innovations, such as a new mechanical design. Being enterprise hard drives, the new platform features a top and bottom attached motor (with a 7200 RPM spindle speed), top and bottom attached disk clamps, RVFF sensors, humidity sensors, and other ways to boost reliability and ensure consistent performance. Like other datacenter-grade hard drives, the Ultrastar DC HC550 HDDs are rated for a 550 TB/annual workload, a 2.5 million hours MTBF, and are covered by a five-year limited warranty.
    Because the new MAMR-based nearline HDDs use platters featuring a leading-edge areal density, expect the Ultrastar DC HC550 to offer higher sequential performance than existing 7200 RPM hard drives. Meanwhile, since the new storage devices feature a single actuator that enables around 80 IOPS random reads, IOPS-per-TB performance of the new units will be lower when compared to currently available high-capacity 10 – 14 TB HDDs (think 4 IOPS-per-TB vs. 5.7 – 8 IOPS-per-TB) and will require operators of large datacenters to tune their hardware and software to guarantee their customers appropriate QoS.
    Unlike Westen Digital’s flagship 20 TB shingled magnetic recording (SMR) hard drive for cold storage applications, the company’s 16 TB and 18 TB HDDs use energy-assisted conventional magnetic recording (CMR) that ensures predictable performance both for random read and write operations. As a result, while the Ultrastar DC 650 SMR HDD will be available only to select customers that can mitigate peculiarities of SMR, the Ultrastar DC 550 hard drives will be available to all clients that are satisfied with their IOPS-per-TB performance and will have qualified them in their datacenters.
    Western Digital will ship samples of its MAMR-based Ultrastar DC HC550 16 TB and 18 TB hard drives to clients late this year and plans to initiate their volume ramp in 2020.

    Anandtech: HTC Unveils Final Specs & Availability Date of Cosmos VR Headset for PCs

    HTC this week announced final specifications as well as availability date of the Vive Cosmos, its next-generation tethered VR headset, which promises numerous improvements along with modularity for further upgrades. Among the key features of the Vive Cosmos are higher resolution displays, full 6DoF inside-out tracking built around six cameras and integrated sensors, a lower weight, as well as all-new knuckles-style controllers. The headset is available for pre-order now and will ship in early October.
    Originally unveiled at CES early this year, the Vive Cosmos head mounted display (HMD) is equipped with two 3.4-inch RGB LCD screens, each offering a per eye resolution of 1440×1700 (2880×1700 combined resolution), a 90 Hz refresh rate, and a 110-degree field of view (officially, this is the same as the original Vive). On which note, HTC has been relatively mum on the optics used, though it has been confirmed that they're continuing to use Fresnel lenses.
    As this is a tethered headset by default, in its standard configuration the HMD connects to a host PC using via DisplayPort 1.2 and USB 3.0. Alternatively, the VR HMD can be equipped with a WiGig-based wireless adapter from HTC.
    The VR headset comes with a built-in inside-out 6-degree-of-freedom (6DoF) positional tracking enabled by six cameras, a G-sensor, as well as a gyroscope, which is an important distinction from the original Vive (and Vive Pro), as it does not require any external sensors for tracking. This greatly simplifies the setup process and removes some of the friction from using the device, though as a realistic assessment it's unlikely to be quite as stable as using external sensors. Like all HTC Vive HMDs, the Cosmos has its own spatial audio-supporting stereo headphones as well as microphones.
    The new headset also comes with brand-new knuckle-style controllers, which are tracked by the HMD as part of its inside-out tracking. The controllers feature touch sensitivity, two application buttons, a trigger, a joystick, a bumper, and a grip button; all the common controls found on current-generation VR controllers. There is one notable caveat about the Cosmos controllers though: they are powered by two AA batteries and cannot be recharged from outside, which means that users will need to swap batteries after they get run down.
    A unique capability of the Vive Cosmos is modular design of its front panel, which can be detached and replaced by another one, allowing upgrades and new features to be added. Fittingly, the very first ‘mod’ is the Vive Cosmos External Tracking Mod, and it is designed to allow the headset to be tracked externally using the SteamVR ecosystem's existing Lighthouse base stations (though this also means the Cosmos controllers cannot be used). This one will be available in Q1 2020 for under $200.
    The new HTC Vive Cosmos has a lower weight compared to its predecessors, the manufacturer says without elaborating. Meanwhile, the HMD continues to use a headstrap similar to that of the Vive Pro, with a sizing dial and enhanced ergonomics that balance the weight for added comfort.
    HTC’s Vive Cosmos VR headset will be launching on October 3rd for $699. However for anyone looking to get started right away, HTC has already started taking pre-orders this week.

    Anandtech: TCL Shows Off 132-Inch Micro LED 4K UHDTV: 24,000,000 Micro LEDs

    Direct view Micro LED displays are a relatively new display technology that so far has been publicly demonstrated only by Samsung and Sony, the two of which tend to experiment with variety of technologies in general. At IFA last week TCL, a major maker of televisions, threw its hat into the ring by demonstrating its ultra-large Micro LED-based Ultra-HD TV.
    Dubbed the Cinema Wall 132-Inch 4K, TCL’s Micro LED television uses 24,000,000 individually controlled LEDs as RGB subpixels, and features a 1,500 nits max brightness level as well as a 2,500,000 contrast ratio (good enough to compete against OLEDs). The manufacturer claims that the TV can display a wide color gamut, but does not disclose whether they're using DCI-P3 or BT.2020.
    Like other early-generation display products, TCL is not revealing if and when plans to release its 132-inch 4K Micro LED TV commercially, but the fact that that it has a device that is good enough to be shown in public (see the video by Quantum OLED channel here) is an important step. Just like other makers of Micro LED televisions, TCL might want to increase peak brightness supported by these devices, as many modern titles are post-produced using Dolby’s Pulsar reference monitor for Dolby Vision HDR, which has a peak brightness level of 4000 nits.
    Numerous TV makers are currently investigating Micro LED technology as a viable alternative to OLED-based screens. While OLEDs tend to offer superior contrast ratio when compared to LCDs, they have a number of trade-offs, including off-axis color shifting, ghosting, burn-in, etc. WOLED has mitigated some of these issues, but it has also introduced others due to the inherient limitations of using color filters.
    By contrast Micro LED TVs are expected to be free of such drawbacks, while still retaining the advantages of individual LEDs like brightness, contrast, fast response time, and wide viewing angles. As an added bonus, Micro LED TVs will not need any bezels and can be made very thin.
