AMD's adaptive clocking technique
     Wed, Jun 11 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, AMD described advanced power management techniques that reduce power consumption by 10-20% in Steamroller, a high performance microprocessor. This technique uses an adaptive clocking system that cleverly compensates for power supply noise to reduce voltage, thereby saving power. This technique is likely to be adopted across AMD's entire product line including upcoming GPUs, x86 CPUs, ARM-based CPUs, and other critical blocks in highly integrated SoCs.

Intel i7-4790K Devils Canyon @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 3:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to CPUs there are only a few options available when you are looking for the fastest performance. Up until now you could go with a Haswell CPU or if you wanted more cores The Ivy Bridge-E CPUs. AMDs has done well on the integrated GPU side of things but for pure CPU power Intel has been the only way to go. Recently Intel announced their latest refresh with their Devils Canyon CPUs. Today I finally have the chance to put the i7-4790k to the test and see what kind of improvement it is over the i7-4770k."

The Intel Core i7-4790K - Devils Canyon Review and Overclocking
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 1:41P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Performance of the Core i7-4790K is impressive, even if you choose to not overclock at all. The 500 MHz clock speed increase (at both base and Turbo speeds) when compared to the Core i7-4790K makes the choice between the two parts pretty much a no-brainer. Benchmarks clearly showed the advantage of the Devil`s Canyon CPU and it ranges from 7-15% depending on the application and the threaded efficiency of the application. That is a hefty boost in today`s world of x86 processors and the fact that we are creeping closer and closer into the Ivy Bridge-E territory is great news. And hopefully that means the Haswell-E parts are right around the corner."

Intel Devils Canyon Core i7-4790K Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 11:52A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devil`s Canyon CPUs - sold under the Core i7 4790K and Core i5 4690K - are designed with higher base clocks and higher overclocks in mind. At one stage many were working under the impression that the i7 4790K would be a simple multiplier bump of the i7 4770K, bringing very little added value to the market over its predecessor. As we will see in the review the 4790K is a substantial engineering improvement, creating a major lead in both stock speeds and additional overclocking headroom without a price increase."

Red Faction: Armageddon 3 Years-Later Review
     Tue, Jun 10 2014 | 10:56A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is it worth returning to Mars with Red Faction: Armageddon? In my opinion it definitely is. The game looks good, runs great, and is just a fun experience. It empowers you to cause as much destruction as you want, but also allows you to rebuild afterward. It takes many of the mechanics of the franchise and raises them to a new and enjoyable level. I mentioned in the introduction how it has an interesting place in the franchise, and now I will explain what I meant by that. I can remember when Red Faction: Armageddon first came out how a lot of people panned it and dismissed it for one reason in particular. It is not a sequel to Red Faction: Guerrilla. After that game, many were expecting another open-world, sandbox experience, and instead we received a very linear shooter. While I can understand the disappointment many felt, this game is still a fun and enjoyable member of the Red Faction franchise, and one worth playing."
