Biostar Announces Z370GT7 and Z370GT6 Motherboards for Coffee Lake CPUs

Not willing to be left behind at the starting line, Biostar has announced its entries into the rapidly growing Z370 motherboard market. At the time of publication, Biostar is bringing two boards to the table from their Racing line with the Z370GT7 and Z370GT6. The GT7 is the company’s flagship board and, accordingly, will be the more expensive of the two. While both are full-featured motherboards, the GT7 offers an additional M.2 heatsink over the GT6 (bringing the total to two), three full-length PCIe slot reinforced compared to the GT6’s two, as well as additional shrouding covering the audio section of the board on the GT7. Outside of that, differences between the boards will be difficult to spot.

The Biostar Racing line is in its third generation Racing series aesthetic which features a gold and black color theme. All heatsinks on the board are black and adorned with yellow accents while the PCB itself is black. The “R” (Racing) symbol is found prominently on the chipset heatsink. Other gold accents are found scattered around the board.

Both boards use a 10-phase VRM to drive the Coffee Lake-based CPUs. Both boards also feature three full-length PCIe x16 slots and three x1 slots. In the top right corner, both boards have a debug LED, BIOS switch, and a panel with four buttons on it for power/reset functionality, as well as Turbo and Eco mode buttons. RGB LEDs can be found on both boards with the GT7’s located on the back panel IO shroud, while the GT6’s are found on to the left of the audio section. The integrated LEDs and external LEDs (via two headers) can be controlled with Biostar’s Vivid LED DJ utility. It features 10 different flashing modes along with color, speed, and brightness controls allowing control over each lighting zone independently.

Neither board uses reinforced DIMM slots, however two full-length PCIe slots on the GT6 and all three slots on the GT7 get protection. The slots break down to x8/x8/x4 and both boards support 3-way AMD Crossfire, though it should be noted that there isn’t a mention of SLI support in any form on the specifications page. The last full-length slot at x4 shares bandwidth with the second M.2 slot. The boards four DIMM slots support up to 64GB of RAM with speeds supported to DDR4 3866(OC). While still fast, this is the second lowest speed we have seen supported across all Z370 boards covered. Only the ECS board supported slower maximum speeds (DDR4 3200).

For mass storage purposes, both boards use the full allotment of six chipset managed SATA ports. However iInstead of locating these in their typical position to the right of the PCH heatsink on the bottom half of the board, Biostar as placed them towards the middle of the board oriented them vertically. The first M.2 slot is above the top full-length PCIe slot and supports up to 80mm sticks, while the second slot can be found between the bottom two PCIe slots and supports up to 110mm devices. The GT7 offers heatsinks on both M.2 slots, while the GT6 only cools the bottom slot.

As for cooling, the board gives users a total of five four-pin fan headers to use scattered in various locations around the board. These can be controlled via voltage or PWM through the BIOS or through the Windows-based application. Audio functionality is handled by the Realtek ALC1220 codec, uses EMI shielding, what looks to be Chemicon audio caps, as well as separation from the rest of the board. Network capabilities on both boards and handled by the Intel I219-V Gigabit Ethernet which supports LAN surge protection.


Both the GT6 and GT7 have the same number and types of USB ports. There are two USB 3.1 (5 Gbps) Type-A ports and one Type-C, and an additional two USB 2.0 ports on the back panel IO. Internally there is an additional USB 3.1 (5 Gbps) header and USB 2.0 header for front panel connections. The back panel IO also contains a PS/2 port, DVI-D and HDMI for video outputs, as well as a six plug audio stack. The GT7 chooses to use all black colored plugs versus the GT6 using the color-coded version most are familiar with.

“To begin with, some ideas were being drawn up to exhibit to gamer focus groups, together with some tough measurements and price factors.The overpowering reaction was they liked the thought and required anything that was practical and a first rate dimension. High-quality was also anything that really came across, as gamers appeared to feel a good deal of the charging stations were being boring and in numerous situations improperly created. The truth they could purchase a interesting piece of items that also held their controller or product as it billed meant we’d arrived at a new product or service genre – functional household furniture.

“Also, when we set a smaller – or mini male – into a collectable box, it appeared we’d also develop anything ideal for gamers to set on their desks or tables. Some even explained they’d use it to keep their toothbrush in the lavatory. Possibly way, it really is another example of the multi-features of both of those Cable Men. We entirely anticipate gamers to dream up new and fascinating means in which they can be used in the months forward.”

NVIDIA Announces World’s First AI Computer to Make Robotaxis a Reality

MUNICH, GERMANY–(Marketwired – Oct 10, 2017) – GTC Europe — NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today unveiled the world’s first artificial intelligence computer designed to drive fully autonomous robotaxis.

The new system, codenamed Pegasus, extends the NVIDIA® DRIVE™ PX AI computing platform to handle Level 5 driverless vehicles. NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus delivers over 320 trillion operations per second — more than 10x the performance of its predecessor, NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2.

NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus will help make possible a new class of vehicles that can operate without a driver — fully autonomous vehicles without steering wheels, pedals or mirrors, and interiors that feel like a living room or office. They will arrive on demand to safely whisk passengers to their destinations, bringing mobility to everyone, including the elderly and disabled.

Millions of hours of lost time will be recaptured by drivers as they work, play, eat or sleep on their daily commutes. And countless lives will be saved by vehicles that are never fatigued, impaired or distracted — increasing road safety, reducing congestion and freeing up valuable land currently used for parking lots.

Of the 225 partners developing on the NVIDIA DRIVE PX platform, more than 25 are developing fully autonomous robotaxis using NVIDIA CUDA GPUs. Today, their trunks resemble small data centers, loaded with racks of computers with server-class NVIDIA GPUs running deep learning, computer vision and parallel computing algorithms. Their size, power demands and cost make them impractical for production vehicles.

The computational requirements of robotaxis are enormous — perceiving the world through high-resolution, 360-degree surround cameras and lidars, localizing the vehicle within centimeter accuracy, tracking vehicles and people around the car, and planning a safe and comfortable path to the destination. All this processing must be done with multiple levels of redundancy to ensure the highest level of safety. The computing demands of driverless vehicles are easily 50 to 100 times more intensive than the most advanced cars today.

“Creating a fully self-driving car is one of society’s most important endeavors — and one of the most challenging to deliver,” said Jensen Huang, NVIDIA founder and CEO. “The breakthrough AI computing performance and efficiency of Pegasus is crucial for the industry to realize this vision.

“Driverless cars will enable new ride- and car-sharing services. New types of cars will be invented, resembling offices, living rooms or hotel rooms on wheels. Travelers will simply order up the type of vehicle they want based on their destination and activities planned along the way. The future of society will be reshaped,” he said.

Broad Industry Support
Virtually all carmakers, transportation as a service companies, as well as startups are using NVIDIA AI in the development of Level 5 vehicles.

“NVIDIA gets it. And their DRIVE PX Pegasus will get us to Level 5.”
— Tim Kentley-Klay, CEO and co-founder, Zoox

“We plan to put NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus into production in our autonomous vehicles.”
— Sertac Karaman, president and co-founder, Optimus Ride

“The breakthrough AI performance and capabilities of the NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus platform will ensure the reliability and safety of our autonomous trucking fleet.”
— Xiaodi Hou, CTO, TuSimple

“NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 is the brain of our self-driving prototypes, and we can’t wait to get our hands on NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus.”
— Dmitry Polischuk, head of self-driving, Yandex.Taxi

“NuTonomy is building for Level 5 and Pegasus is the kind of platform that will be required to support these types of systems.”
— Karl Iagnemma, CEO and co-founder, NuTonomy

“Today dozens of companies are racing to develop robotaxis, but they are still gated by the massive computation needs of a truly driverless car,” said Luca De Ambroggi, senior principal automotive analyst at IHS Markit. “The new NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus shows the path to production for the automakers, startups and automotive ecosystem working to deliver this amazing vision.”

Product Specifications
NVIDIA DRIVE PX Pegasus is powered by four high-performance AI processors. It couples two of NVIDIA’s newest Xavier system-on-a-chip processors — featuring an embedded GPU based on the NVIDIA Volta architecture — with two next-generation discrete GPUs with hardware created for accelerating deep learning and computer vision algorithms. The system will provide the enormous computational capability for fully autonomous vehicles in a computer the size of a license plate, drastically reducing energy consumption and cost.

Pegasus is designed for ASIL D certification — the industry’s highest safety level — with automotive inputs/outputs, including CAN (controller area network), Flexray, 16 dedicated high-speed sensor inputs for camera, radar, lidar and ultrasonics, plus multiple 10Gbit Ethernet connectors. Its combined memory bandwidth exceeds 1 terabyte per second.

The NVIDIA DRIVE PX platform scales from a single mobile processor configuration delivering Level 2+/Level 3 capabilities to a combination of multiple mobile processors and discrete GPUs for full Level 5. These configurations run on a single, open software architecture. This enables automakers and tier 1 suppliers to move from development into production for a wide range of self-driving solutions — from AutoCruise on the highway, to AutoChauffeur for point-to-point travel, to Pegasus for a fully autonomous vehicle.

NVIDIA DRIVE PX is part of a broad family of NVIDIA AI computing solutions. Data scientists who train their deep neural networks in the data center on the NVIDIA DGX-1™ AI supercomputer can seamlessly run on NVIDIA DRIVE PX inside the vehicle. The unified architecture enables the same NVIDIA DRIVE software algorithms, libraries and tools that run in the data center also perform inferencing in the car.

This cloud-to-car approach enables cars to receive over-the-air updates to add new features and capabilities throughout the life of a vehicle.

Pegasus will be available to NVIDIA automotive partners in the second half of 2018. NVIDIA DriveWorks software and NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 configurations are available today for developers working on autonomous vehicles and algorithms. More information is available at

Netflix shares rise as company announces subscription price hike

(Reuters) — Netflix’s U.S. business announced the first rises in monthly fees in two years on Thursday, hiking costs for two of its three main subscription plans as it spends heavily on its own original content.

The company’s mid-range plan, which allows streaming on two devices at the same time, was increased to $10.99 per month from $9.99.

The top-tier plan, which allows streaming on four screens in high definition, was raised to $13.99 per month from $11.99. The basic plan fee remained at $7.99.

Shares in the global streaming pioneer rose as much as 4.5 percent to a record high of $192.80.

“Most investors believe that Netflix is priced well below its value to consumers and want to see the management continue to increase monetization,” Rob Sanderson analyst at MKM Partners said.

In 2011, Netflix raised prices for some customers by as much as $6, causing more than 800,000 U.S. subscribers to desert the service.

A more gradual move in 2014 did not provoke the same outrage.

Netflix is cheaper than many of its competitors despite the current price hike. HBO Now, the standalone streaming service of HBO that offers access to shows such as “Game of Thrones” and “Veep”, is priced at $14.99 a month, while Hulu prices its service without commercials at $11.99 per month.

“This price increase will likely be a revenue growth catalyst for the company,” RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney wrote in a client note. “The content, not price, is the leading churn/churn-back factor amongst Netflix subs.”

The price hikes will only be in the United States and will start taking effect from mid-November, depending on users’ billing cycles.

The higher pricing comes as the video streaming service spends heavily on original content and expanding outside the U.S.

Netflix had earlier said it would spend over $6 billion this year on original shows and expected to have negative free cash flow of $2 billion to $2.5 billion.

“The average revenue per user (ARPU) lift is a significant growth driver and important to … (the) content budget,” said Sanderson.

Samsung announces SmartThings and ADT home security system for $549

Samsung’s new home security system is powerful, but is it worth the $549 asking price?

Thanks to the rise of smart home gadgets, home security systems are now more powerful and accessible than they’ve ever been. Companies like Nest and Ring are trying to make a name for themselves in the home security world with their own offerings, and Samsung just announced that it’ll be partnering with one of the oldest names in the industry – ADT – to offer its own SmartThings security system.

Like most home security systems, the SmartThings ADT Home Security Starter Kit comes with quite a few gadgets to help you get started with protecting your home. Along with the main Security Hub that powers the whole shebang, you’ll get two sensors for windows and doors and a single motion detector. When the system officially launches, you’ll also be able to add carbon monoxide detectors, fire alarms, water leak sensors, and as many other alarms and detectors that you think you’ll need for covering every square inch of your home.

The Security Hub features a touch-screen for controlling arming and disarming all of your security tools, but in addition to this, it can also act as a hub for general SmartThings accessories, such as light bulbs, thermostats, door locks, and more.

You’ll need to pay $549 upfront for the base kit that comes with the Hub, two window/door sensors, and one motion detector, and like most home security systems along these lines, you can also choose to pay a monthly subscription fee for even more services. A $14.99/month plan will get you 24/7 professional monitoring for water leaks, carbon monoxide, and smoke/fire, whereas the $24.99/month plan offers 24/7 monitoring for panic alerts and any detection of a home invasion.

Samsung’s security system costs $350 more than the Ring Protect.

That sounds like a relatively good deal on its own, but the Samsung and ADT’s security system does not exist in a bubble. Just yesterday, Ring announced its Ring Protect system that costs $199 upfront and then $10/month for similar 24/7 monitoring. Samsung does have the advantage with its ADT partnership, but the difference in price between these two new options is quite substantial.

You can preorder the ADT Home Security Starter Kit and some of its expansion items starting today from both Samsung and Best Buy’s websites, with the system moving to physical Best Buy stores starting on October 29.
