圖為傅聰在昆明演出(2001年)五月天亚洲图片婷婷 聰︰這都是一整個有機體,它們絕對不能分開。我覺得音樂教育的最基本問題是要弄清為什麼要學音樂。他有再大的才能,再高的天分,再好的先生和再優越不過的條件,假如出發點沒有弄清楚,那一切都是白費的。說實在的,我從來沒有夢想過成為音樂家、鋼琴家。我小時開始學鋼琴最主要的原因是感到在這方面還可能有一定的園地,我小時候的音樂感受力特別強,爸爸覺得可能有點東西在那里,也許在這方面有所發展,所以讓我學了兩三年。後來生活上有些變動,少年時代又有相當一段浪子生涯,在昆明老有給學校開除、逃學等等莫名其妙的事發生。以後我決定回上海,重新專心學音樂。我真的從來沒想到過將來做個國際上的鋼琴家,我主要的出發點,主要的原因是我愛音樂。我覺得沒有音樂的話,我的生命就缺少意義。這並不是理論上的東西,完全是感情上的。常常有人問我︰你為什麼不寫東西?我不寫,因為我覺得必須心里頭有東西,一定想寫才能寫,而不能因為我是搞音樂的,一定要寫點什麼。我自己覺得我不是這塊料子。我感受能力相當強,我的才能是在再創作方面,我需要去理解別人,有時也可以發揮,發揮出更多的東西來。主要就是說出發點是我在內心有股力量,使我走上了這條道路。國內音樂界現在有一股風,不少人都在拉協奏曲,彈協奏曲,不少是炫耀技巧的、唬人的東西。室內音樂不搞,奏鳴曲也很少搞。這反映了一種功利主義傾向,一些人主要是想成名,成明星,他們不是為音樂服務,而是音樂為他們服務,音樂為成名服務。因為假如是獻身音樂的話,就不能不搞室內音樂,室內音樂是音樂里最美麗、最豐富的音樂。也不能不搞奏鳴曲,我是說提琴和鋼琴的奏鳴曲。我假如開音樂會,不開獨奏會,而開兩個人的奏鳴曲的音樂會,我是最高興的,我覺得這里有無窮的樂趣。就是彈伴奏吧,這里也有無窮的樂趣,舒伯特的樂曲,伴奏也是最美的音樂。這里就是有個出發點的問題。www亚洲人 純真得像孩子,虔誠得像教徒,比象牙還缺少雜質。 678五月丁香亚洲综合网

Santa Clara, California (August 1, 2019) – Marvell (NASDAQ:MRVL) today released the industry’s lowest power PCIe® Gen4 NVMe™ solid-state drive (SSD) controller portfolio.  Marvell’s newest SSD controllers are designed to meet the need for lower power and higher performance in next-generation data centers and edge devices as artificial intelligence (AI) and 5G gain momentum.  This breakthrough technology delivers unparalleled performance in an ultra-compact footprint, leveraging the company’s complex system-on-chip (SoC) design expertise and groundbreaking storage IP to help data center, notebook, tablet, gaming and edge computing platform architects advance their solutions for the highly distributed data era. 

“Marvell’s latest family of storage controllers has been architected to optimally address edge computing and data center pain points of power-performance and capacity-performance,” said Nigel Alvares, vice president of marketing for the Flash Business Unit at Marvell Semiconductor, Inc.  “With today’s launch, we’re once again demonstrating Marvell’s leadership in storage, delivering the industry’s first 4-Channel PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSD controllers with the industry’s lowest power consumption that will help revolutionize SSD solutions for the data economy.”

Ecosystem Support

“AMD recently introduced the world’s first PCIe® 4.0 ready desktop PC platform, the 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen™ processor and AMD X570 chipset for socket AM4,” said Chris Kilburn, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Channel, AMD. “We are delighted with the Marvell DRAM-less PCIe Gen4 SSD controller helping bring the increased bandwidth and performance required to elevate the user experience with next generation computing devices.”

“As a strategic storage partner of Lenovo, we are dedicated to transforming our customers’ experience with technology innovation,” said JP Yang, general manager of SSD BU, Union Memory (a Lenovo company).  “The PCIe Gen4 host interface, high-speed 1200MT/s NAND flash interface and low power 12nm technology of the Marvell SSD controllers support our vision of bringing significant value with superior power-performance in small form factors, low latency for fast wake-up and prolonged battery life operation.”  

“We have worked closely with Marvell to validate Micron’s high-performance, 96-layer NAND components supporting 1.2 GT/s interface with its PCIe Gen4 SSD controller family,” said Arie Tal, senior director of business development for the Consumer and Components Group at Micron Technology. “Marvell’s optimized controllers will allow our mutual customers to deliver innovative, low-power, small form factor SSD solutions for emerging data center, edge computing and PC OEM use cases.”

“Marvell and Toshiba Memory Corporation have a strong established relationship delivering best-in-class SSD offerings for markets that span client to cloud data center,” said Hiroo Ohta, technology executive, Toshiba Memory Corporation.  “We believe Marvell’s PCIe Gen4 controller product family combined with our TLC, QLC and XL-FLASH BiCS FLASH™ Gen. 4 devices will enable new edge and data center storage architecture solutions utilizing flash technology.”

Advancing Next-Generation Technology

The Marvell SSD controller portfolio of devices, including the 88SS1321, 88SS1322 and 88SS1323, represent the industry’s first PCIe Gen4 DRAM and DRAM-less SSD controllers to be fabricated on a 12nm process.  With support covering all existing and emerging m.2 (22110 to 2230), BGA, EDSFF and U.2 SSD form factors, the controller family is ideal for cloud data center server compute storage, enterprise boot drives, PC client storage and gaming storage as well as emerging industrial and edge device applications. 

Importantly, the new Marvell solutions will enable next-generation 3D and QLC NAND devices that maximize cost efficiency and reduce total cost of ownership.  The ultra-compact DRAM-less controller architecture allows for a stand-alone SSD controller and NAND unit to be mounted side-by-side on a single-sided ultra-compact m.2230 form factor SSD.  This significant space savings enables platform OEMs more room to house battery packs versus m.2280 SSDs, while also providing better performance compared to PCIe Gen 3x4 SSDs and lower power consumption compared to eight NAND channel controller-based SSDs.

Marvell’s revolutionary SSD controllers are available for sampling today.  For more information, please visit:

Marvell will showcase its SSD controller product line at the Flash Memory Summit, August 6-8, at the Santa Clara Convention Center (Expo Booth #511, Exhibit Hall A).  Nigel Alvares’ conference keynote, “Innovative Chipset Solutions for Accelerating the Data Economy” takes place on August 7 at 2:10 p.m.
