January 20, 2016 - Taipei, Taiwan - Innodisk, the service-driven flash and DRAM module provider, announces its latest SSD software, iSMART 5.0 featuring new user interfaces, dashboard feature and iAnalyzer. Innodisk's iSMART 5.0 is designed to simplify information and provide an easy to read interface for all of our users. The iSMART tool monitors the health and lifespan of Innodisk's SSD, provides details on usage patterns, and sets up alert settings before it reaches failure. With iSMART, our customers can properly integrate Innodisk's SSDs into their solutions by carefully monitoring behavior and health during development, integration, and mass production.

Dashboardand One-click Feature Provides Excellent User Experience

The new user interface is simple and efficient. The dashboard’s feature provides a summary or quick snapshot, of each installed disk in the system. This feature offers accurate information regarding temperature, health, capacity, lifespan, iAnalyzer, and notifications. Furthermore, users can enable and disable SSD functions by simply clicking one button to control the iAnalyzer and Write Protect features.

iAnalyzer Predicts SSD Lifespan

The iAnalyzer function displays the read/write behaviors of the SSD in real time.  This utility allows the user to understand their application’s usage of the SSD.  Sequential and Random I/Os are easily broken down into percentages making them easy to read. The latest update to iSMART 5.0, the iAnalyzer, records the read/write behaviors of a SSD in real-time. This feature categorizes the operations as either sequential or random I/O as well as segmenting them by the size of the operation.

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to announce its launch of 16GB and 32GB DDR3 Registered DIMM (RDIMM) modules aimed at maximizing memory in Apple  Mac Pro  2013 systems. With four user-upgradeable memory slots available, Transcend’s latest high-performance DDR3 RDIMMs can boost Mac Pro 2013 Intel  Xeon  E5 3.5GHz 6-Core, 3.0GHz 8-Core, and 2.7GHz 12-Core models to 64GB, 96GB, and even 128GB total memory capacity.

 "The new Mac Pro 2013 is advertised to support up to 64GB of memory, and we understand that pro users running applications that place high demands on RAM have a need to meet and most likely exceed this threshold,” said Angus Wu, Director of Research and Development at Transcend. “For this reason, we have developed and fully tested higher density modules to give users the option of raising their Mac Pro system memory to the advertised 64GB right up to 128GB.”

While the memory that comes pre-installed on the Mac Pro may be enough for common processing tasks, adding more memory is one of the easiest ways to enhance performance during 2D graphic design, HD video editing, and photo retouching. However, the Mac Pro is designed for more serious tasks including 3D graphic design, 4K video editing, and gaming. Therefore, maximizing memory ensures the system can handle powerful, RAM-intensive software applications such as Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe After Effects CC.
