Intel Core i5-6600K vs Core i5-2500K - 2D Performance
     Thu, May 26 2016 | 6:35P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups in need of as much processing power as possible. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, performance improvements quickly translate into higher income by the end of the month. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
     Sat, May 21 2016 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Going from a cooler on a 70x90mm base with a 70mm fan to a 90x100mm base with a 90mm fan is an excellent step up for AMD. It helps to allow the multi-core processor to more easily take advantage of the new graphics API in DirectX 12 set to be leveraged in new games (and VR headsets) while reducing the chances of thermal throttling."

ARM Tapes Out Next-Gen 64-Bit Artemis Mobile Chip
     Wed, May 18 2016 | 12:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ARM has been working closely with TSMC – the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company – for a number of years now. Over the last six years or so especially, ARM and TSMC have collaborated to ensure that the latter’s cutting-edge process technologies work well the former’s processor IP. So, with every generation since 2010, the companies have built ARM’s most advanced processor cores on TSMC’s most advanced emerging process nodes. The collaboration successfully began with a test chip produced at 28nm, but today ARM is announcing the successful tape-out of a test chip featuring next-generation, premium 64-Bit ARM v8-A mobile processor cores, codenamed Artemis, and manufactured using TSMC’s upcoming 10nm FinFET process technology...

AMD has done some redesigning of the chip
     Mon, May 16 2016 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is in a strange position in that there is a lot of excitement about their upcoming Zen architecture, but we are still many months away from that introduction. AMD obviously needs to keep the dollars flowing in, and part of that means that we get refreshes now and then of current products. The “Kaveri” products that have been powering the latest APUs from AMD have received one of those refreshes. AMD has done some redesigning of the chip and tweaked the process technology used to manufacture them. The resulting product is the “Godavari” refresh that offers slightly higher clockspeeds as well as better overall power efficiency as compared to the previous “Kaveri” products.

Comparison List Update: All Skylake CPUs
     Sun, May 08 2016 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over time CPU manufacturers like Intel and AMD release numerous processors and it is very likely to lose track of all the models out there. Furthermore it is difficult to find complete comparison tables where you find all CPUs and their features listed. Following you find such a list regarding Intel's upcoming Skylake processors.

AMD A10-7860K 65W APU
     Fri, May 06 2016 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's APUs have been refreshed, some now featuring lower power consumption and a new thermal solution, so they draw less power and are quieter. AMD's A10-7860K supports HSA, DirectX 12, Vulkan, and Mantle. With a maximum turbo clock of 4.0 GHz, the AMD A10-7860K isn't just a CPU, it does graphics, too.

Dark Souls III Benchmarked: GPU & CPU Performance
     Tue, May 03 2016 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dark Souls III is arguably the biggest game to launch this month. Using the engine from developer FromSoftware's 'Bloodborne', Dark Souls III looks quite impressive but you can certainly tell this is a console port. The tweakable options are decent though the game gives no real explanation of what you are enabling. You do get enhanced graphics, better performance and higher resolutions.

AMD’s own proclamation
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 2:40P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone that pays attention to the graphics card market can see why AMD would make the positional shift with the Radeon Pro Duo. The Fiji architecture is on the way out, with Polaris due out in June by AMD’s own proclamation. At $1500, the Radeon Pro Duo will be a stark contrast to the prices of the Polaris GPUs this summer, and it is well above any NVIDIA-priced part in the GeForce line. And, though CrossFire has made drastic improvements over the last several years thanks to new testing techniques, the ecosystem for multi-GPU is going through a major shift with both DX12 and VR bearing down on it.

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.
