AMD A8 7650K APU Review – The Little APU That Could!
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Oftentimes we will get people asking us about building a gaming PC on a budget, with the ability to upgrade in the future. Well today we will be bringing you our AMD A8 7650K review, which is priced aggressively and certainly packs a punch. This APU can be used in a variety of ways, like a low budget gaming PC with room for upgrades, a HTPC, heck even cheap work stations aren’t out of the realm of possibility, but before we make any bold claims lets take a look at its performance.

Intel Core M 5Y70 Broadwell-Y Benchmarked At IDF 2014
     Mon, Jun 29 2015 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has officially revealed the Core M processors, the first fifth-generation Core processors that use the ‘Broadwell-Y’ microarchitecture. We’ve told you about Broadwell-Y before, but we’ve never been allowed to see detailed performance numbers, let alone run benchmarks ourselves on the reference platform. That all changed today when we were able to run benchmarks on the Llama Mountain reference tablet that was powered by the Intel Core M-5Y70 Broadwell-Y Processor!

Intel Launches Xeon E7-8800 and E7-4800 v3 Processor Families
     Thu, Jun 11 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has refreshed its line-up of processors in a number of categories over the last few months. Late last year, Intel’s current flagship desktop processors based on Haswell-E arrived, followed shortly thereafter by the low-power Core M series for ultra-mobile devices, and then 5th Generation Core processors for notebooks and all-in-ones. Intel has made some noise in some other markets as well in the same time period—see here for an example of a killer SSD—but today the company officially takes the wraps off of its latest processors for mission-critical enterprise server and pro workstation applications, the Xeon E7-8800 / 4800 v3...

AMD FX-8370E 95W “Piledriver” Octa-Core Processor Review
     Wed, Jun 10 2015 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 32nm “Vishera” processors from AMD have been around for a long-while; since October 2012 to be exact. Vishera was AMD’s Zambezi successor with Vishera being based on the Piledriver architecture and Zambezi on Bulldozer. Since the first release of Vishera, AMD has continued to refresh its FX product stack with new CPUs based on the same architectural design and AMD’s most recent releases maintains that trend. On September 2nd 2014 AMD officially revealed three new CPUs for the FX line; the FX 8320E, the FX 8370 and the FX 8370E. We are looking at the FX 8370E processor which is AMD’s attempt to tame the high TDP of their 8 core FX line down to 95W; previously the standard TDP stood at 125W.

Carrizo processor is AMD's follow-on to Kaveri
     Fri, Jun 05 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Carrizo processor is AMD's follow-on to Kaveri and a direct competitor to Intel's Broadwell CPUs. After a lengthy prelude, AMD is officially taking the wraps off of Carrizo today at the Computex trade show in Taipei. The firm expects laptops based on Carrizo to be available near the end of this month, and now that the chip is official, we know a number of juicy details about it that had previously been murky.

Asus VivoPC VM62B Review
     Thu, Jun 04 2015 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus VivoPC comes in a number of versions. This model is the VM62B with a Core i3 processor and integrated Intel HD 4600 graphics which puts it in the middle of the pecking order. You can also buy it with a Celeron 2957U (we prefer to avoid Celerons) or Core i5-4210U (gotta love that Turbo) but instead we have Core i3-4030U. You will note the CPU model code shows it is 4th Gen hardware at a time when Intel has rolled out low power 5th Gen and we fully expect to see 6th Gen later this year.

AMD 6th Generation Carizzo APU Unveiled: Taking On Intel At 15 Watts
     Wed, Jun 03 2015 | 1:59P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD previously only teased bits of detail regarding their forthcoming 6th Generation A-Series APU, code named "Carrizo." We heard from AMD about this next generation, highly integrated mobile architecture as far back as CES 2015 in January and then again in February and more recently with AMD's HSA (Heterogenous System Architecture) 1.0 spec roll-out in March. It's safe to say AMD has been beating the drum on Carrizo with a regular cadence for the better part of 6 months now and today the company is finally going to full kimono on all details of their upcoming processor silicon and its platform...

AMD Claims Zen Processor Cores Will Compete With Intel
     Sun, May 31 2015 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD this afternoon kicked off its first Financial Analyst Day in three years. During the hiatus, AMD has had a change of leadership and the company has seen its market share erode in the processor and GPU markets. However, on the x86 side, AMD is pushing forward with the 2016 launch of processors based on its new Zen core. For starters, Zen-based processors will bring with them a significant boost in overall performance and a roughly 40% IPC improvement. Although AMD didn't offer specifics, it touts Zen as having a “high-bandwidth, low-latency cache system” and that it will be built on an “energy-efficient” 14nm FinFET process.

Last night's live stream with David Kanter was a deliciously nerdy discussion of AMD's upcoming CPUs and graphics chips in light of the roadmap info and other revelations from this week's Analyst Day event. The video below is a replay of the whole enchilada. It's lengthy, but there was some good discussion in there once we got rolling.
