Rocket 2230 SSD: Sabrent gets a lot out of 3 cm

The US manufacturer Sabrent has presented an NVMe SSD of the particularly compact variety. The Rocket 2230 is available in the 3 cm short M.2 format. Nevertheless, it offers up to 1 TB of storage volume and up to 5,000 MB/s via PCIe 4.0. This would make it a faster alternative to the SSD in the Steam Deck.

The M.2 2230 form factor stands for a 22 mm wide and 30 mm long module. The M.2 2280 format with a length of 80 mm is more common in the PC sector. But in very compact systems this can already be too long.

Short enough for the Steam Deck

That’s what the Sabrent Rocket 2230 is for. The manufacturer has selected use in the handheld PC Steam Deck as the ideal scenario. In contrast to the factory-installed Kingston SSD, the Sabrent SSD is supposed to work much faster, which the manufacturer demonstrates with a benchmark comparison. However, various different SSDs are installed in the Steam Deck, so the advantage does not always have to be that great.

The peak performance of 5,000 MB/s reading and 4,300 MB/s writing should be even faster in selected benchmarks. This is ensured by the 4-channel controller Phison E21 in connection with Micron’s 3D-TLC-NAND of the 176-layer generation. It is interesting when looking at the Sabrent data sheet that the largest version with 1 TB of storage volume is not always faster than the version with 512 GB. As expected, the smallest model with 256 GB achieves the lowest rates of 4,650 MB/s reading and 1,900 MB/s writing.

In the category of tiny M.2 2230 SSDs, Sabrent should now claim the performance crown. Kioxia’s BG5 also uses PCIe 4.0, but only achieves a maximum of 3,500 MB/s.

Populated on one side, without DRAM

The specified height of 2.15 mm and an illustration indicate that the Rocket 2230 is unilaterally populated with components. Space for a DRAM chip is not required because the controller works without its own DRAM cache (DRAM-less) and instead accesses a tiny part (usually 16 to 64 MB) of the system RAM via the NVMe function Host Memory Buffer return.

As usual, the SLC cache, in which part of the TLC-NAND is initially written with only 1 bit instead of 3 bits per cell, ensures higher write rates.

Sabrent has not yet announced pricing or availability. The manufacturer’s SSDs are usually also available in this country.

The most frequent problems regarding time control

As indicated from Woffu, time control managementIn addition to being a legal necessity, it is one of the main headaches for HR managers. The company highlights the main difficulties when it comes to managing the presence and absence of workers and how to solve them.

Waste of time solving incidents

One of the main problems that HR managers encounter is the time invested in solving incidents caused by disconnected tools, which do not have the technology to integrate vacations and absences with the presence in the same tool.

Many companies manage absence requests by email, paper or Excel sheets, for example, which do not allow them to attach supporting documents. In this way, as they point out from Woffu “team leaders waste hours and hours searching for and requesting receipts, reviewing who is working and who is not available. This prevents them from focusing on valuable tasks.”

Non-digitized HR processes

In the same way, one of the obstacles in the management of time control is the lack of digitization. Since the Time Control Law does not specify whether it must be done with a tool designed for it, there are many companies that choose for continuing to register on paper or in Excel sheets. “Companies waste a lot of time by manually recording the hours worked and the reasons for absence, in addition to the fact that the margin of error is greater and the data obtained is not reliable”, They comment from Woffu.

In addition, in many companies, the tools used do not allow managing the signing of a hybrid work model or a work model only remotely. Therefore, by not having this digitization, the company lacks data and information that helps to understand its reality, such as the absenteeism rate, departments that telework the most, etc.

Lack of visibility of the days of absence and presence

Another of the common problems is that the company usually lacks visibility of the days of absence and presence of employees or between teams. This translates into a waste of time asking or searching emails or notifications for the availability of the rest of the team. Related to that lack of visibility is the fact that employees may believe that their overtime is not being recorded. This leads to disgruntled and distrustful employees.

Tools that do not meet the needs

It may happen that HR software has been hired, but when employees and managers use it to record the workday, or to request medical hours, the tool does not meet usability standards. Or it does not allow a real-time connection with visualization on any device. In this case, it is best to test the tool before entering into a deal. Make sure that it is user friendly and that it responds to the needs of both employees and HR managers. We must try to make the use of the labor registration tool as easy and bearable as possible, so it will be possible to ensure its daily use and full adoption by the workforce.

Time Control Law

Despite the fact that it has been more than four years since the implementation of the Control Law, it is still an aspect of business management that continues to generate controversy and controversy. In fact, according to data published by Grupo SPEC, half of the companies would not pass an inspection by the hourly register three years after the law. In fact, from September 2019 to May 2022, inspectors have detected a total of 3,299 violations in the registration of working hours throughout Spain and have imposed a total of 4.7 million euros in fines.

Acer

The new Acer Swift Edge is presented as a new high-performance ultraportable, and despite everything it maintains a very contained weight. This computer comes configured with a Ryzen 7 Pro 6850U APU, a chip that can be configured with a Zen 3+ CPU and a Radeon 680M GPU based on RDNA2 architecture. The processor has 8 cores and 16 threads at 2.7 GHz base frequency and 4.7 GHz speed in turbo mode, and the GPU has 768 shaders.

Despite being a low power solution, that APU is capable of delivering an excellent level of performance, and its integrated GPU can outperform dedicated solutions like the NVIDIA MX450so it’s a really interesting APU. The memory configuration that Acer has used in this equipment impresses, since we have a total of 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory at 6,400 MHz in the most powerful version, which translates into high bandwidth.

The screen of the Acer Swift Edge is 16 inches, you can mount a OLED panel with 4K resolution capable of reproducing 100% of the DCI-P3 color space and is TUV RHEINLAND certified, indicating both high quality color reproduction and low blue light emissions. The rest of its specifications are completed with a 1 TB M.2 SSD with PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity and a FullHD webcam.

The range of connectors that the Acer Swift Edge brings is up to the equipment, and we can highlight the presence of two USB 4 connectors, two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, a 3.5 mm jack and an HDMI output. In its base configuration, this equipment weighs only 1.17 kilograms, its chassis is made of a magnesium aluminum alloy and offers a range of up to 7 and a half hours for each battery charge. Its price will be 1,200 euros in its base configuration.
