Geeks3D's GPU Tools / Re: FurMark 1.19.1 released
« Last post by JeGX on December 11, 2017, 07:33:20 PM »
Here's the problem in detail.

I have a laptop with i7-8700K CPU, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card and windows 10.
The Furmark v1.19.1.0 will show me a 140 FPS and a 99% of GPU usage after running stress test.
After I ran a CPU stress test together as the GPU burner bulid-in Furmark app.(or Prime95)
The FPS and GPU usage will immediately drop down to 108 FPS and 65% of GPU usage.
In the meantime, No any limit reasons were found in Furmak.
But it will come back to normal as running Furmark alone if I reset the affinity(CPU) in the device manager.

Yes there a minor thread affinity issue in the current FurMark but it will be fixed in the next release.

Any plans in including artifact scanner into the new releases like ROG FurMark has? I would love this.

Currently, the artifact scanner feature is only for graphics cards makers (ASUS, EVGA, MSI, etc.). Maybe in the future...

Why is there no database on Furmark 1.19.1 for 4k resolution. I have a very decent score on my RX Vega 56 of 7555 and would like to know how that stands comparitively to other 4k resolution scores.

There is a link at the bottom of the FurMark scores page. But most of scores seem fake. I just re-benchmarked my GeForce GTX 1080 and I get a score of 2790 points (47 FPS) for preset P2160 (3840x2160). I haven't tested the RX Vega 56 but 7555 seems a very high score for a single Radeon. Maybe it's a crossfire score?  For the preset P1080, I get 7295 points (122 FPS) with the GTX 1080.

I will update asap this page with 4k scores.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Toshiba launches a 14TB HDD filled with helium
« Last post by JeGX on December 11, 2017, 06:19:22 PM »
The 14TB models use an innovative 9-disk, helium-sealed design to deliver massive capacity that fits into standard 3.5 inch SATA drive bays.

The MG07ACA Series utilizes Toshiba precision laser welding technology to seal helium inside the 9-disk mechanics for the life of the drive.  The helium-sealed design reduces aerodynamic drag to deliver a lower operational power profile, helping to achieve TCO objectives for cloud-scale and software-defined data center infrastructure.
The massive 14TB and 12TB model capacity is delivered using proven CMR/PRM recording technologies providing optimum compatibility and data reliability.  Equipped with SATA 6.0 Gbit/s interface, the MG07ACA models integrate easily into standard 3.5-inch SATA drive bays to help reduce the footprint and operational burden of cloud-scale storage infrastructure, and business critical servers and storage systems.


Irvine, CA – December 7, 2017 – Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation today announced the launch of the MG07ACA Series, the world’s first1 enterprise 14TB2 Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) HDD. Using a 9-disk, helium-sealed design, the new MG07ACA Series provides the power-efficient capacity and storage density needed by cloud-scale and enterprise storage solution providers to achieve their TCO objectives.

“We have raised the bar with the new MG07ACA Series 9-disk helium-sealed design,” said Akitoshi Iwata, Vice President of Storage Products Division, Toshiba Electronic Devices and Storage Corporation. “By utilizing an innovative design, we continue to improve the benefits that high-capacity disk storage can deliver to our broad global customer base.”

The MG07ACA Series features both 14TB 9-disk and 12TB 8-disk models. The helium-sealed 3.5-inch3 mechanical design realizes better storage density and a lower HDD operating power profile than the previous MG06ACA Series for optimal TCO in cloud-scale infrastructures. The series also utilizes Toshiba Group’s laser welding technology to ensure the helium remains securely sealed inside the drive enclosure. The drives support a SATA 6Gbit/s interface and 7,200rpm access performance. The 9-disk 14TB models achieve a 40% increase in maximum capacity over previous MG06ACA 10TB models. Additionally, the 14TB models improve power efficiency by over 50% (W/GB)4.

“Toshiba’s first helium-sealed nearline drive intercepts the market at a class-leading 14 TB capacity with CMR,” said John Chen, industry analyst at Trend Focus. “Its early time-to-market for this capacity positions the company well to meet the storage needs of large hyperscale and cloud companies. Additionally, the company’s choice of a 9-disk platform paves the way to achieving higher capacities in future product generations.”

“While enterprise server and storage customers realize that shingled magnetic recording (SMR) technology can improve HDD capacity, the adoption of SMR HDD products into server and storage systems is a transition that will take several years,” said John Rydning, Research Vice President for hard disk drives at IDC. “Toshiba’s new helium-sealed enterprise HDD is the world’s first 14TB of storage capacity using conventional rather than shingled magnetic recording technology, giving enterprise customers the highest capacity HDD available in the market today for existing server and storage system architectures.”

In my system Furmark's 1.19.1 does not work properly.
Please check whether it operates normally on the next system.
An error occurs in about three minutes from the execution of the program and the program is dropped.
Thanking you in advance.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Vulkan SDK Released
« Last post by Stefan on December 09, 2017, 03:14:23 AM »
This SDK resolves two issues with the Runtime Installer:
  • Fix an issue where having an active Vulkan program at install time could result in a missing vulkan-1.dll file
  • Allow the runtime installer to run on systems with mandatory ASLR
This is a question about 3D printers. I don't know whether it is proper to ask you questions here...I hope someone can help me out. There are conductive filament for 3D printers which seem to have between 30 and 115 ohm/centimeter resistance depending on the axis. (Proto-Pasta conductive PLA)

They can be 3D printed as a capacitor of 2 cubicly-interlacing-but-not-touching matrices as follows, with one negative and one positive:

Does it have useful properties? I figure probably it could already be done, but here maybe it can be done at home simply and relatively cheaply, and so I wonder what that does, if someone can figure it out. I don't have yet the equipment to try. With a cheap printer I can't imagine doing more than 2x20x20x20 cubes, inside 20 * 20 * 20cm, with 1cm per side. I know that's surely not much compared to normal caps rolled onto themselves. I tried it with normal filament. The bridging is tricky, but it can be done, so I wonder about the theory.

Sorry for the blurred image..An interesting thing about 3D printers is that it can create shapes of things nested one into the other. But I don't understand capacitors and so it's possible the effect cancels out and that it's of no use as it is, or that the standard plate-against-plate is better.

Anyway, I'll be trying it eventually, or at the least, a standard configuration.
