NAS Advanced 3.0 with Kaby-Lake 4-Thread Pentium, 6x SATA and M.2

NAS Advanced 3.0 with Kaby-Lake 4-Thread Pentium, 6x SATA and M.2

This is the third version of our guide for a medium to large-sized NAS. As well as showing a 30 % performance increase over its predecessor, this one also allows you to incorporate an M.2 hard drive as a system disk. The 6 SATA ports now all work to the newest SATA3/6G standard.

The new Kaby-Lake architecture is only a slight improvement on its predecessor, Skylake. Apart from an average of 200 MHz more clock speed and the fact that Kaby-Lake has finally integrated HEVC (H.265) into its hardware, performance per cycle is identical to that of Skylake. The winners are the new Pentium processors which now suppor... continue reading

ASRock J4205-ITX Test – Apollo Lake with HDMI 2.0 and 10-bit HEVC

ASRock J4205-ITX Test – Apollo Lake with HDMI 2.0 and 10-bit HEVC These are the results of our tests on the ASRock J4205-ITX, the first mainboard with an embedded Apollo Lake Processor, one of Intel’s new processors. Apollo Lake is based on the Intel Goldmont architecture and is the successors of Braswell. Even prior to launching, Intel spoke of an enormous boost in performance of up to 30% with the same clock speed.

In the case of the ASRock J4205-ITX at least, the maximum turbo clock speeds of 2.6 GHz are identical with those of the previous model, although Intel has promised processors with considerably higher clock speeds in the near future.


The ASRock J4205-ITX... continue reading
