Inateck - 7-Port USB 3.0 PCI-E Card KTU3FR-5O2UThis PCI-E USB 3.0 port extension card uses the FL1100EX chipset (Fresco Logic) component that has proven to be ideal for heavy data transfer at high speed, as well as properly powered connections for Oculus and HTC Vive headset for Virtual Reality.

It could checked the amperage fluctuation of the USB 3.0 ports power of the card, and was confirmed the proper increase of the data transfer amperage correctly on a Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3. The USB tester used don't allow the maximum speed, just for check the amperage.

Intel Dual Xeon Server




I am pleased to announce the hardware acquisition of the latest generation "Intel Dual Xeon Server" dedicated 24/7 exclusively to HD rendering and complex simulations.

For the initial phase, has been installed the first Intel Xeon E5-2697 v3 @3092.62 MHz (28 Threads) on a Intel S2600CWT Server Motherboard, as well as 128GB Kingston ValueRAM DDR4-SDRAM.


With this new acquisition, I can guarantee the availability to perform extensive 3D animation works, as well as complex calculus operations, reaffirming again the high production capacity on latest generation high-end hardware.
