AMD A8-7650k Kaveri APU Review
     Wed, Mar 25 2015 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In January 2014 AMD unveiled its latest generation of accelerated processing units dubbed “Kaveri”. The range was formed of the A10-7850K flagship, the A10-7700K mid-range part and the entry-level & low power A8-7600; of which a previous comparison can be found here. These new range of APU’s brought forward a new leap in internal graphic processing units (iGPU); making them more powerful and energy-efficient than ever before. Today we have the newest addition to the lineup, the A8-7650k. This chip is based on the A8-7600, but has been given the famous AMD ‘Black Edition’ treatment, allowing the user to overclock the core somewhat freely. Pricing in today’s market is paramount, and producing a fully unlocked processor for the same price as its predecessor is mind-boggling.

AMD FX8370E Review
     Sat, Mar 21 2015 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has updated its FX range of CPUs with three new models that use Socket AM3+. FX-8370 slots in above FX-8350, just as you would expect, but the real interest lies with FX-8370E and FX-8320E with a TDP that has been reduced from 125W to 95W. That ‘E’ suffix appears to stand for Eco.

AMD A8-7650K Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Mar 16 2015 | 11:45A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD recently made an addition to their Kaveri line up of APUs with the release of the unlocked A8-7650K. This was done in tandem with the new A68 chipset with the aim to tempt buyers with a well-rounded low cost system. Coming in at less than 80 for the APU and from just 33 for an A68 motherboard, it is interesting to see how AMD are now attacking that `price` part of `price-performance`."

Exclusive Interview with Richard Huddy
     Sat, Mar 14 2015 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Lisa Graff, Intel VP for the Desktop Client Platforms Group, recently told KitGuru about her plans for 2014/2015, the focus was clearly on reinventing the desktop. As KitGuru reported a while back, there will be a resurgence on desktop for Intel going forward, which we believe will peak around 2017. To get a different take on this information, we caught up with Intel’s Gaming Guru, Richard Huddy who was just eyeing up the hotel’s perfectly rendered breakfast fruit when we spoke.

Intel NUC Kit NUC5i5RYK Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 9:29A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we`ll be looking at an early production sample of the Intel NUC NUC5i5RYK. This model is currently the flagship model as it comes with the mainstream Intel Core i5 5250U Dual-Core processor with Hyper-Threading. The Intel Core i5-5250U is a 15W TDP processor based on the Broadwell microarchitecture, which means it is made using the 14nm process node. It comes with a base clock of 1.6GHz and thanks to Intel Turbo Boost Technology it can get up to 2.7GHz when needed. Read on to see how this tiny (115mm x 111mm x 48.7mm) system performs."

Intel Core i7 5960X CPU Review
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since the first dual-core desktop CPUs started rolling out in 2005, the race to bring more computing cores to desktop processors has been on. Now, nearly a decade later, Intel has pushed ahead further than ever before with the release of the Core i7 5960X, their first ever consumer socketed eight-core CPU. While, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a consumer grade eight-core CPU (AMD has been making them since 2012), this is first one with Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology which allows for 16 multiple threads per core that should increase overall performance in multi-threaded tasks greatly.

AMD Carrizo APU Details Revealed!
     Sun, Mar 08 2015 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD revealed at the prestigious International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) that the upcoming A-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), codenamed “Carrizo”, for notebooks and low-power desktops will deliver a wealth of new, advanced power management technologies while achieving substantial performance through new “Excavator” x86 CPU cores and a new generation of AMD Radeon™ GPU cores. Using a true System-on-Chip (SoC) design, AMD expects Carrizo to reduce the power consumed by the x86 cores alone by 40 percent, while also providing substantial gains in CPU, graphics, and multimedia performance over the prior generation APU.

AMD took the wraps off of a new SDK
     Sat, Mar 07 2015 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are lot more specific examples of what LiquidVR and AMD can help fix in the virtual reality pipeline and more than likely many of you are noting the similar information provided by NVIDIA as VR Direct with the launch of the GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards. At that point NVIDIA talked about asynchronous warping as well as VR SLI - matching the discussion we had with AMD today in key ways. I do know that NVIDIA has demos and meetings at GDC this week focused around VR Direct and I think we will learn more as the week progresses on how these two initiatives from AMD and NVIDIA compare."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
