Kingston's First NVMe SSD, The KC1000

Kingston has reintroduced the KC1000 NVMe SSD. We first saw the drive in January at CES, but the company wanted to hold the details until the official launch. Seemingly, that is in the very near future--mid June.
The KC series has historically targeted system builders and corporations upgrading systems en masse. Kingston released several client SSDs under the KC brand, and many of them were tuned for increased stability and longevity but share similar hardware with models from the standard consumer product line. The KC1000 press release seems to turn the tables and take this series in a slightly different direction.
 
"The demands of today’s performance power users are constantly being put to the test as new data-intensive applications push the boundaries of what can be achieved with even the market’s high performance professional workstations and most powerful gaming rigs,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “KC1000 is the perfect solution to meet the needs of media and design professionals, gaming enthusiasts and anyone who needs ultra-low latency storage performance to end data bottlenecks. This native NVMe device offers one of the industry’s most powerful storage solutions for high-resolution content delivery, virtual reality applications, accelerated game play or a competitive edge for the creative professional on tight deadlines.”
 
Gamers, power users, and enthusiasts have always been directed to the HyperX brand, but in recent years that series shifted to target gamers exclusively. Kingston calls the KC1000 an "Ultimate Storage Upgrade for HD Video, PC Enthusiasts, Gaming and More." The release later identified a list of specific application categories the series will perform well in:
 
High-resolution video editing Virtual and augmented reality applications CAD software applications Streaming media Graphically intensive video games Data visualization Real-time analytics  
It seems the KC series may begin to target a wider audience with the introduction of the first Kingston NVMe SSD.
 
 
The KC1000 series ships in three capacity sizes, but there are a total of six product SKUs. For each capacity, the drives ships as either a bare drive or with a half-height, half-length (HHHL) add-in card adapter. The performance coming from the Phision PS5007-E7 controller paired with Toshiba 15nm planar NAND looks strong. The sequential read performance reaches 2,700 MB/s, and the sequential writes are 900 MB/s for the 240GB model and 1,600 MB/s for the two largest-capacity drives. Random performance is also impressive, with up to 290,000 IOPS (225,000 for the 240GB). Users can reach up to 190,000 random write IOPS.
 
Kingston backs the KC1000 series with a generous five-year limited warranty with ample endurance figures that reach as high as 1PB for the 960GB drive.

    Yeah. I've heard of EvE but haven't played it. I'd play WoW but I don't have anyone to play with. I thought of setting up a private server for it but scrapped the idea as I hear they're even more work to keep maintained than a PSO server is!

    Linux Server Box There are a couple things you're going to need in-order to properly run a command line, or terminal, over a linux server box. Prerequisites: Linux server box(All command lines in this tutorial are operational on CentOS) (See "Finding a Host" Section!!) Knowledge of any FTP client Knowledge of basic command line navigation (As long as you have a basic understanding to what "terminal" is then you should be fine) What you need to download: Some form of SSH Client (I prefer putty) Some form of FTP client (I prefer Filezilla) The newest version of craftbukkit. (Always pick the best build for your version of minecraft.) [Recommended > Beta >Development] What is SSH? SSH or Secure Shell Hosting is where you remotely connect to other computers where you can perform a large range of tasks through a command line. Think of it like your CMD on your computer, yet has more functionality and is way more advanced. SSH is commonly used in dedicated servers allowing for full function of the server. If you're interested in getting a dedicated server, it is important that you look at this section. However, SSH isn't limited to just dedicated hosting. What is FTP? FTP or File Transfer Protocol is where you can remotely delete, modify, create, or add files to the physical server. With the FTP client Filezilla, you can see your files as they would look like on your computer. You can simply drag and drop things from your computer to the FTP. Finding a Host It is important when looking for a minecraft host that you get the right stuff for your money. SSH can apply to all types of servers but I recommend getting a dedicated server. If you're willing to dish out a decent amount of money for a good minecraft server then you should do so. If you plan on ever running a serious minecraft server, dedicated server is the only way to go. Most dedicated servers can handle over 100 players. My personal favorite host is allgamer. Connecting to your SSH Server (Step 1) Alright, first what you want to do is open up your SSH client (putty) (Step 2) In the Hostname[or IP address] section put the IP to your server. If the port is blank or has any other port than 22, change it to 22. Port 22 is your default SSH port. Remember: It is not your Minecraft Port. And click 'Open'. (Step 3) Type the username provided usually by email from your hosting company and press enter. (Step 4) Copy the password provided usually by email from your hosting company and right click on the screen. This is the pasting method to SSH terminal. You will not see any changes because the input of your password on the screen do not generate characters for security purposes. Press enter. (Step 5) You're now in root. But, for security purposes, (and good practice), we're going to make a user and use that instead of using root. Why? Note: Do not log into that user until I've told you so. Stay in root. Alright, so do the following command: adduser -p <yourpassword> <yourusername> Look at you being a Unix expert and whatnot. Oui So, we're done with this part. Creating your start.sh Now creating your start.sh can be tricky, but you MUST look at this tutorial completely if you want to run your server. First let's start by explaining what a "start.sh" is. It is important that you look over this section carefully. What is a "start.sh"? A start.sh is the execution starter that is recognized by your SSH client. When initiated, it starts the process of starting your server on a thread. When creating your start.sh it's important that you know the total amount of RAM on your server box. If you don't know, you need to find out. Refer back to your webhost to see. (Step 1) Open up your FTP (Filezilla). You should see this at the top: (Step 2) In the host put the IP of your server. In the username put the username given in the receive email and put the password. In the port put 21. 21 is the default port for FTP. Then click the 'QuickConnect' button. Congratulations, you are now connected to your servers FTP! (Step 3) First, you want to find a suitable directory for your server to be in. With my old server, I just did /server So, what you do is right click on your folder that says "/" And click the create directory tab. Name the folder(directory) "server". (Step 4) In your empty server folder. Drag and drop your craftbukkit.jar file into it. Be sure to rename your craftbukkit.jar to craftbukkit.jar. You don't have to, it just makes it easier for later on. (Step 5) On your desktop make a new notepad and name it start.sh then open it. The following is an example start.sh. Do not copy it exactly, because it won't be right. ☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰ java -server -Xms6G -Xmx10G -jar craftbukkit.jar ☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰☰ Xms shows how much RAM you want to allocate for your server. Xmx is your total RAM. You do not ever want to allocate all of your RAM to your minecraft server. The reason being is, there are more processes running on that system than minecraft. You need to make space for them too. I usually put 3/4 RAM allocated to my minecraft server but that's only if I'm running the minecraft server on the box. Remember, you want atleast 2GB to be safe, but I recommend more. (Step 6) By now, you should have the start.sh completed, and saved. Also, you should have your craftbukkit.jar on the FTP. Place the start.sh onto the FTP in the same folder as the craftbukkit.jar and exit the FTP. Congratulations, you have successfully created your start.sh! Starting your Minecraft Server Alright, starting your minecraft server can be pretty easy or you can make it entirely hard. If you followed each of the following steps to the exact specifications and methods, you shouldn't have a problem. Understanding your SSH security Navigating through command-line there is a couple things that you should take note of. If you don't know what you're doing. Don't do it. If it's not broken, don't fix it. Consult multiple guides for consistency. Some guides may be outdated or wrong. Check with multiple guides before you go and test something. The reason why I'm saying all of this is because, you can seriously mess up your HD by doing stuff that you're not suppose to be doing. Like for example using all of your memory all of the time. This will cook your HD. Not good. So, it's important that you know what you're doing before you actually do it. (Step 1) Make sure you've done your start.sh, you've placed the craftbukkit.jar in your FTP. Once you have done this, connect to your root account. (See "Connecting to your SSH Server" section.) (Step 2) Installing java is pretty easy actually, and it's kinda obvious why you need it. yum install java It is recommended that you install Sun Java however, it's a long painful process. (Step 3) Now, if you plan on running, say a test server of some sort, it's important to have "Screens". Screen is an application that you can get for your linux SSH client which will allow you to have multiple sessions for your terminal. You can easily get screens by doing the following: yum -y install ncurses-devel texinfo pam-devel libtool This one downloads all the dependencies that are required to run Screen. yum install screen And this actually installs the application. The reason why having screen's is a good thing is because this not only more options to your terminal, but it also, allows other users to be able to connect to the terminal. When people are connected to a terminal, they cannot run on the same socket, therefore it will inadvertently kick the other user off the SSH server. With Screens, you can know when someone is using the server console and when it is free to use, it also is easier to kill processes with it aswell. (Step 4) Alright, now that you have java and screens installed. You want to type the following command screen -list And you should see something like this: http://gyazo.com/b07d9d0751985fb69ab4c13eb8888fd7.png Quick commands: screen -S NAMEHERE "This creates a session for you." screen -rd NAMEHERE "This will detach anyone from the session and log you onto it." ALT + A, ALT + D "This will detach you from the session, alternatively, you can do screen -d" screen -list "This will show all sessions on this terminal that are active and dead." kill -9 NUMBERHERE "In screen -list, it should show a 4-8 digit number before the sockets. This will stop that session forcefully." screen -wipe "This will clear all dead sockets on the terminal." (Step 5) Alright it's time to start using your user account but before we do, you need to give yourself permission to use everything minecraft related. You shouldn't ever need to be in root to use your minecraft server . Note: Be sure to change the username in the commands with the one you set up previously (See Step #5 in Connecting to your SSH Server) Type (This will create a group): groupadd minecraft Then type (This will add your username to the group): usermod -a -G minecraft <whicheverusernameyouused> Type this (This gives your user exclusive rights to your minecraft folder): chown -R <whicheverusernameyouused>:minecraft /server Type this (Give group members read and execute privileges): chmod -R g=rx /server Type this (Give user read/write/execute privileges): chmod -R u=rwx /server You're probably wondering in these two last commands how it finds the user and group. Well, it's because when you did this: You gave yourself ownership of that folder (Step 6) Now it's time to relog and connect via your username. (The one you created Step #5 of Connecting to your SSH Server). (Step 7) In your SSH command line, you will have to get the directory of the things you're trying to do. http://gyazo.com/49fff6959cee7c5dae3c361b46638c15.png This will allow you to do anything within the confines of the directory "/server". You have to do this every time you log into the SSH client. so it's important that you get religious when performing these tasks. (Step 8) Now last, you want to type ./start.sh You should have started your minecraft server. [Common Problems] If it's saying you don't have permission, do the following command - chmod -R 770 /start.sh in ROOT It says you must be running on a different port: Means you either still have the thread up for a minecraft server and are using the port. netstat -o -n -a | findstr 0.0:25565 ... Or you didn't properly set it up in config.yml in your minecraft server folder. Connect to the FTP and check out your bukkit config.yml in your server folder, and see if the connection port is 25565, this is the default port for a minecraft server. You know, the port that allows you just put the mc.awesomeminecraftserver.net and not have the ugly :25234 at the end.

    At one of the most exciting – but least surprising, thanks to a series of leaks and rumors – announcements at Computex 2017, Intel unveiled its powerful new line of Core X-Series processors, including the beastly 18-core Core i9 CPU. The Intel Core i9 is the world's first ever consumer desktop CPU with 18 cores and 36 threads – out gunning even AMD's upcoming Ryzen 9 Threadripper CPU, which is due to come out with 16-cores. It is also the first ever teraflop desktop CPU, according to Intel. Last year at Computex, Intel unveiled its first 10-core consumer CPU, the company's move into the world of a "megatasking." It was a pricey chip, launching at around $1,700, but it satisfied the needs for users who needed to juggle several intensive tasks at once. Now, Intel is upping the ante with a whole new family of processors for enthusiasts, the Core X-series, and it's spearheaded by its first 18-core CPU, the i9-7980XE. Priced at $1,999, the 7980XE is clearly not a chip you'd see in an average desktop. Instead, it's more of a statement from Intel. It beats out AMD's 16-core Threadripper CPU, which was slated to be that company's most powerful consumer processor for 2017. And it gives Intel yet another way to satisfy the demands of power-hungry users who might want to do things like play games in 4K while broadcasting them in HD over Twitch. And as if its massive core count wasn't enough, the i9-7980XE is also the first Intel consumer chip that packs in over a teraflop worth of computing power. Its full name is the Intel Core i9-7900X X-series processor, and this first version will be made available with 10 cores and 20 threads, with 18, 16, 14 and 12 core variants coming soon. The 10-core i9 variant will come with a base clock speed of 3.3GHz, Inel Turbo Boost Max technology, which ups the frequency to 4.5GHz, 13.75MB of L3 cache, support for 4 channels of DDR4-2666 RAM and a TDP (thermal design power) of 140W. At launch it will cost $999 (around £780, AU$1300). The 18-core Core i9 7980XE, along with the 16-core Core i9 7960X, 14-core Core i9 7940X and 12-core Core i9 7920X should follow soon. All will come with up to 44 PCIe lanes and support for Intel Optane memory. Keeping it in the X-Series family While the new Core i9 CPUs are understandably stealing the limelight, Intel also revealed the rest of the X-Series family of processors, which Intel says is its most "scalable, accessible and powerful desktop platform ever", and covers a range of processors with 4 to 18 cores. These eighth generation Core processors offer a 30% performance improvement over the current seventh generation CPUs, according to Gregory Bryant, corporate vice president and general manager of the Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation, who took to the stage at Computex to announce the new generation. These CPUs will also be up to 10% faster for multi-thread performance, and up to 15% faster for single-thread performance compared to the current generation of Core processors. These new processors will make use of Intel's new X299 chipset, which comes with improved I/0 capabilities. Gaming, and virtual reality in particular, will benefit from these new processors, according to Intel, and will also improve streaming for gamers who want to show off their gameplay. At the launch event Intel demoed a PC running a Core X-Series processor that was live streaming someone playing a virtual reality game to Twitch. Thanks to the power improvements of the new CPUs, the PC was able to simultaneously broadcast a number of views and angles of the gameplay live – something that would normally take a number of separate PCs to achieve. It's all very exciting stuff, and Intel said that we should see many Core X-series processors available to buy by the holiday system this year. Maybe even in time for Black Friday, we hope.

    They are indeed money making machine who is owned my google. I don't like when they promote videos that has so many hits or channels that just gets crazy with views and followers. And so channels like myself that are very small won't grow or in this case never able to get an good amount. Even bigger channels are having hard times. I know allot with over 100K followers are now moving over to twitch steaming. All YouTube channels are that partners with an MCN are not getting as much as they used to get regards earnings.

    For my early years of my life it always has been physical and it was the good old times that was lovely till this day, I was running an old computer back then and so physical was the only option that I can go about and back then it was the one and only option other then floppy disks As from today that I still got the discs versions for the Grand Theft Auto 5 and some other very big games that are not 4 discs, reasons since I have crap internet back at my old home and would of taken so much days and money to download, not like now where I can download games with unlimited data. The Answer to all questions on what I prefer is the digital version. I can repeat again but @Xenokitten is right from the points above. Thanks for the helpful good facts and points you have added and explained.
