Patriot Memory just announced their new Javelin S4 Media Server NAS, capable of up to 12TBs of storage for a massive home theater movie/music/photo collection.

Patriot’s Javelin S4 12TB Media Server

  Patriot Memory, the well known manufacturer of NAND flash, storage and enthusiast computer products, announced their latest 12TB capable Javelin Media Server. The Javelin Media Server is an NAS (Network Attached Storage) central hub for digital media storage needs. The Javelin allows up to four 3.5-inch SATA or SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives, and up to 3TB/HD in capacity, adding up to a total of 12TBs of storage capacity. For users with special performance or security needs, Patriot provides their users with several RAID levels, including 0, 1, 5, and 10. The drives are hot-swappable, meaning that they can be easily removed and re-installed while the Javelin is running. The NAS unit also provides support for additional hard drive storage to be added even with its 12TB limit externally.

“Additional hard drives can be added externally via the available eSATA and USB ports – the USB ports serve double duty and support USB printers for print server duty.”

A 1Gbps LAN network interface has also been provided for decent performance for media streaming to all systems and devices. The Patriot Javelin is compatible with PC and Mac, featuring an integrated Apple iTunes server to store all iTunes Store purchases in a single location and with a single account. This means that the Javelin has some sort of web browser interface that allows users to stream audio, video, and images straight from the NAS. Finally, the Patriot Javelin contains an integrated BitTorrent client capable of downloading and managing torrent files.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
