Xbox Sessions: DeAndre Hopkins Plays Madden NFL 20 and Tests His Slingshot Skills – Xbox Wire

NFL all-pro wide receiver for the Houston Texans, DeAndre Hopkins was our guest gamer for today’s Xbox Sessions, presented by Sling TV. In this episode, DeAndre participated in a few ridiculous in-studio challenges, talked about his goals for the new football season, touched on his longevity in the league, and played EA Sports Madden NFL 20.

Hosted by Xbox Sessions’ own Rukari Austin, we put DeAndre’s slingshot skills to the test plus a not-your-everyday game of catch involving a frisbee, an Xbox wireless controller, and more. In addition, DeAndre talked about what it means to him to join the coveted Madden 99 club in Madden NFL 20, what team he wanted to play for as a kid, what makes him cancel dinner plans and his post-football career aspirations. Hot tip alert: DeAndre even revealed his secret strategy for putting points on the board quickly both on the field and in Madden NFL 20.

In Madden NFL 20, you are at the center of everything. Experience the thrill of the gridiron and the journey to becoming an NFL superstar. In the new Face of the Franchise: QB1 career campaign, you control the narrative. Start in college as you prepare for the pros, compete in the combine, and get drafted to the league. Every choice you make has an impact on the type of player you’ll become and how you become the face of the franchise.

Check out the full episode with DeAndre Hopkins now on the Mixer Xbox Channel and YouTube Xbox Channel. Madden NFL 20 is out now for Xbox One and available in Ultimate Superstar Edition, Superstar Edition and Standard Edition on the Microsoft Store.

Stay tuned to Xbox Wire for more upcoming episodes of Xbox Session

    I’m selling my netgear r8000 because I have moved to a mesh WiFi system. It was used for 2years. I don’t have the box anymore.
    I bought it because of the WiFi speed and because the WAN connection is gigabit.

    It does have 2 holes at the bottom for wall mounting. All the cables connect on the side. I’m guessing it’s possible to mount it to the ceiling but you’ll have to find a way to make it more secure. 2 holds are not enough for ceiling mounting in my opinion.

    In great condition, parts purchased in 2016.

    Selling due to an upgrade, they’re all together in one bundle so all you’d need to do is install into your PC case – if needs be though I might take out the cooler and package it separately to minimise the risk of damage.

    Hmm depends.

    To be honest it’s because they’re already installed so it’d be easier to sell in one nice bundle; what did you have in mind?

    Hi, do you have any images of the CPU, motherboard and cooler?

    Assuming you don’t have RAM to go with this as well?

    Hi, I do! Would you be interested?

    I’d need to get home to take pics, ok to take some pics for you this evening (6-7ish)?

    No RAM is included, although the RAM I had (which is in my current build now) was 2x8GB DDR4 RAM (Patriot Viper elite) that you can get for £65, I overclocked it to 3000Mhz easily on the MOBO. Just an FYI I suppose if that would be useful info to you.

    I’d need to see how much postage would cost; I’m a bit worried about shipping a motherboard, so would definitely need to remove the cooler and send that separately in the package (no chance I could leave it in there safely without it potentially damaging everything during transit, the CPU would still be installed inside though which would be fine I assume, again i’ll check to make sure haha)

    I’ll look into it and let you know, more than happy to do it though

    Happy with the current price?

    I’d accept £150 but just depends on how much postage is; once I figure that out, i’ll either take at current price or bump slightly; that ok?

    I’ll calculate it when i’m home, thanks

    thanks for your counter offer and i understand you want to minimize your loses but for me its a forty mile plus round trip.you already have a posted bid higher than mine so i will withdraw offer as you should be able to clear near your asking with postage.
    as a side note all offers need to be kept in thread not in conversation otherwise we upset the mods.
    best of luck with the sale mate

    I have re-considered and will accept your offer, just because of shipping concerns.

    If you’re not interested anymore, happy to deal to RobLarby however and I hope you understand mate.

    Hi
    Yes I’m still looking- and would be interested. The 34 is probably a better size for me but depends on price. What did you have in mind?

    I don’t really know what they go for used and not really looked at selling it until just now. Do you have a price in mind?

    I think sellers are required to state price rather than invite offers but to help I can see the last 8 that sold on eBay completed between £420 and £845 delivered

    Hi I had a look on eBay, some of the low ones are from outside the UK. I’ll do some research tonight on used ones and let you know if that’s OK?

    Is this the battery one or the USB wired one (I would assume it’s the battery one due to the included lightning cable)?

IBM Storage syncs new DS8900F array to z15 mainframe launch

IBM Storage launched new faster all-flash, standard-rack-sized DS8900F arrays to coincide with the release of its new z15 mainframe.

The DS8900F models use IBM’s latest Power Systems Power 9 processors and an optimized software stack to boost performance over their Power 8-based DS8880 predecessors. IBM claimed users will see lower latency (from 20 microseconds to 18 μs), improved IOPS and twice the bandwidth when using the DS8900F arrays connected to z15 mainframes equipped with zHyperLink I/O adapter cards compared to using the DS8800.

IBM storage customers will note similar performance improvements when they use the DS8900F arrays with z14 mainframes that have zHyperLink cards. Those that use older z13 mainframes without the zHyperLink cards will see response time drop from 120 μs to 90 μs, IBM claims.

IDC research vice president Eric Burgener said IBM mainframe customers who use a FICON host connection and zHyperLink cards could see latency that’s lower than what any other storage array in the industry can deliver, outside of host-side storage using persistent memory, such as NetApp’s MAX Data.

New IBM storage array is flash only

The prior DS8880 family included all-flash, all-disk and hybrid options mixing disk and solid-state drives (SSDs). But the new DS8900F array that IBM plans to ship next month will use only flash-based SSDs. The maximum capacities are 5.9 PB for the DS8950F model and 2.9 PB for the DS8910F when configured with 15.36 TB flash drives.

Another difference between the DS8900F and its DS8880 predecessor is availability. The DS8900F offers seven 9s (99.99999% availability) compared to DS8880’s six 9s (99.9999% availability). Eric Herzog, CMO and vice president of storage channels at IBM, said seven 9s would translate to 3.1 seconds of statistical downtime with round-the-clock operation over the course of a year.

“From five-plus minutes to less than four seconds doesn’t sound like much on an annual basis, but it really is,” said David Hill, founder and principal analyst at Mesabi Group. “It greatly decreases the chances that a system will ever go down in a year, and that is not a bad thing.”

Although the availability boost may be important for some customers, IBM partner Truenorth has found that six 9s is more than enough for its clients’ needs, according to Truenorth software principal Tomas Perez.  

Perez said a more important new feature is the industry-standard rack size that will make the DS8910F homogeneous with other equipment. That should be helpful as Puerto Rico-based Truenorth puts together disaster recovery (DR) systems for its customers. Truenorth’s clients, including Puerto Rico’s treasury department, have focused on DR in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

The new DS8900F arrays conform to industry-standard rack dimensions of 19 inches wide, 36 inches deep and 42 inches tall. Most IBM DS8880 models have a standard width of 19 inches but non-standard depth, at 54 inches, and height, at 40 inches, with expansion options to 46. In 2018, IBM added a standard-sized DS8882F model to fit into new standard-sized z14 Model ZR1 and LinuxOne Rockhopper II mainframe models released in 2018.

IBM storage security enhancements

With the latest systems, IBM is adding the ability to encrypt data in flight between the new z15 mainframe and the DS8900F array. IBM supported only data-at-rest encryption in prior models.

Herzog said the hardware-based data encryption would not affect performance because the system uses an encryption coprocessor. Prior models use the main CPU for hardware-based encryption, so there could be a performance impact depending on the configuration or workload, Herzog said.

Endpoint security is another new capability that IBM is adding with its Z, LinuxOne and DS8900F systems. Herzog described the new functionality as a “custom handshake” to ensure that the array and the Z system know they’re talking to each other, rather than any spoofed system. 

The DS8900F will also support previously available IBM capabilities. Safeguarded Copy enables up to 500 immutable, point-in-time snapshots of data for protection against malware and ransomware attacks. IBM Storage Insights’ predictive analytics assists with capacity and performance management. And IBM’s Transparent Cloud Tiering supports protecting and archiving encrypted block-based data to S3-based object storage, from providers such as AWS and IBM Cloud, without a separate gateway.

Besides supporting IBM Z mainframes, the DS8900F also works with non-mainframes such as Unix-, Linux-, Windows- and VMware-based systems. The new z15 mainframe is due to become generally available next week, and the DS8200F storage array will follow in October. The starting price is $134,000 for the DS8910F and $196,000 for the DS8950F, according to IBM.

IDC’s Burgener said IBM’s DS competitors, Dell EMC and Hitachi Vantara, generally support distributed systems before adding support for mainframes six to 12 months later. He said IBM’s DS arrays, by contrast, always support mainframes on day one. IBM owns 40% to 50% of the mainframe-attached storage market, Burgener said.

“We should see a noticeable bump in IBM’s overall storage revenues over the next 12 months as their customers go through refresh cycles, and that bump may be a bit higher, if for no other reason than the fact that they are including these new arrays on every new mainframe quote,” Burgener said.
