Intel Core i3 vs. Core i5 vs. Core i7
     Sat, Apr 11 2015 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those building an Intel machine these days have loads of options, with desktop CPU prices ranging from as little as $60 to well over $600. The Core i3 is intended as an entry-level option, the Core i5 is geared for mainstream usage, and the mighty Core i7 is meant for high-end systems and enthusiasts. Many will wonder which one is right for them. Do they need a Core i7 or will the Core i5 be just as fast for their needs? Should they spend less on a Core i3 and allocate the savings elsewhere, or is the Core i5 worth a premium?

Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 “Ivy Bridge-EP” Processor Review
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to x86 processors of pure unadulterated power Intel’s high-end Xeon platforms are the only way to go. Intel’s “EP” (Efficient Performance) SKUs are often some of the most impressive processors that come to market sitting between the high-end consumer and small business segments. Over the years we’ve seen the EP series processors grow in core count as Intel’s CPU architectures have become more efficient in terms of power consumption, thermal specifications and their general design. For example, Westmere-EP had up to 6 cores, Sandy Bridge-EP had up to 8 cores and this current Ivy Bridge-EP series has up to 12 cores. Today we are reviewing the flagship processor of the Ivy Bridge-EP series, the Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor. Thanks to Intel’s generosity we have the opportunity to test a pair of these monstrous CPUs. On paper these are the most powerful CPUs available on the market within that top-end consumer bracket: these CPUs will work with all consumer hardware such as “normal” graphics cards, unbuffered non-ECC RAM, consumer operating systems like Windows 7 and so on. Yet with 12 cores, 24 threads and a 130W TDP its a heck of a lot of performance for any consumer so Intel’s main target is working professionals, small and medium size businesses and anyone who needs a serious amount of x86 computing power. However, the term reasonable cannot be used for the pricing as Intel expects consumers or businesses using these Xeon chips to pay a pretty penny – $2618 to be exact. That said you get what you pay for: with 12 cores and 24 threads in an efficient 130W package Intel’s Xeon E5-2697 v2 is unmatched by any other current generation hardware. Of course Intel’s Haswell-EP is just around the corner and with that we should expect the core limit to be increased again to a staggering 16 cores (if rumours are to be believed) within similar thermal envelopes, we will also see the jump to DDR4 memory made so Ivy Bridge-EP will be the last DDR3 EP platform from Intel.

AMD APU: How Much Progress Has Been Made?
     Thu, Apr 09 2015 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cast your mind back to mid-2011 when AMD released its first “APU”. Back then “APU” (Accelerated Processing Unit) was a term not many of us were familiar with, although the concept wasn’t alien as we’ve had it for quite some time: a CPU that also provides a GPU. Up until the first AMD APU most CPUs had pathetic onboard GPUs that were good for about one display, some video playback and that’s about it – that applies to both AMD and Intel CPUs. Now we have APUs that are capable of realistic 1080p gaming and that large shift has occurred in just three years – largely thanks to AMD’s APUs.

AMD A8-7650K APU and A68H chipset review
     Wed, Apr 01 2015 | 10:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the A8-7650K APU from AMD in combo with a new A68H motherboard from ASUS. The kit is intended for system-integrators who want to offer a nice balance in-between performance and energy consumption. The 7600 series APU is based on AMD's Kaveri architecture bringing the CPU and the GPU even closer together. Kaveri aims at several segments in the processor business like notebooks, desktops, embedded and even server solutions. Armed with a good 2.41 Billion transistors and based on a 28nm fabrication process, let's have a look at what it can do.

Core i7-5960X vs i7-4960X Gaming-Performance
     Tue, Mar 31 2015 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released their new Haswell-E CPUs, we decided to rework our CPU gaming performance articles. Meanwhile we're testing different resolutions and there are FullHD, 1440p as well as UHD on our list. This way you get a more detailed understanding of the differences. Today we compare the Core i7-5960X to the old generation Ivy Bridge-E Core i7-4960X at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5GHz and we're curious see how big the differences are.

A10-6800K vs. Core i3-4150 CPU Review

Posted by: STAFF
"After testing two of the most inexpensive processors for desktop computers (A6-6400K and the Pentium G3220), it is time for us to test two mainstream models for the same platforms: the A10-6800K and the Core i3-4150. Let's see which one is the best pick."

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`."

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.
