Intel Core i7-4960X 3-way SLI Gaming Performance Scaling @ ocaholic
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 10:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our 3-way SLI gaming performance scaling articles we`re going to investigate 3-way SLI scaling factors with different CPUs and different clock speeds. In eight recent games and two theoretical benchmarks we want to find out what difference 3-way SLI makes, when we run benchmarks with the CPU at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Let`s kick off with an Intel 4960X CPU and three ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards and find out what the differences are going to be like."

Are AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs Fast Enough?
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier today the latest installment of our extensive Linux testing of AMD's new Athlon AM1 APUs were shared in the form of RadeonSI vs. Gallium3D benchmarks of the Radeon R3 Graphics found with these new entry-level APUs. Not included with that open-source vs. closed-source driver testing was any Source Engine / Steam Linux game testing due to an XCB DRI3 issue, but this article is devoted to looking at the Catalyst performance for the Sempron 2650, Sempron 3850, Athlon 5150, and Athlon 5350 to see whether any of these APUs can make the cut for a budget Steam Machine."

AMD Athlon 5350 / 5150 & Sempron 3850 / 2650
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 2:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a busy past few days since AMD launched their AM1 Socketed Kabini APUs. After the initial Athlon 5350 Linux review on launch-day, I did some tests involving a faster kernel and newer Mesa code along with some reference DDR3 memory scaling benchmarks for these APUs with Jaguar processor cores. Since then the Athlon 5150 and Sempron 3850/2650 APUs arrived. After a busy weekend of benchmarking, here`s the initial Ubuntu Linux benchmarks of all four AMD AM1 APUs that are available at this time: the Sempron 2650, Sempron 3850, Athlon 5150, and Athlon 5350. With these four new AMD APUs are also a number of thermal and power consumption tests."

AMD Athlon 5350 (Kabini AM1 Platform) FS1b APU
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 3:49P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The gaming and enthusiast audiences love their big, quick, expensive powerhouse machines – there’s no denying that. But the reality is that many users – about 38% of the market, in fact – in a wide span of geographical regions simply cannot afford or justify the latest-and-greatest in both CPU and GPU hardware. That’s where AMD’s Kabini APUs come into the picture. Shipping in up to 2.05GHz quad-core flavours and leveraging the GPU power of AMD’s Radeon R3 graphics, can the Athlon and Sempron – Kabini – APUs prove that respectable performance is available for a sub-£40 fee?

AMD Athlon 5350 APU and AM1 Platform Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 2:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month AMD released the low cost AM1 platform that they believe will succeed in the low cost general everyday use and office markets. To do well in this very competitive market AMD will need an affordable platform that has enough performance to get the daily tasks done. The AMD Kabini APU`s range in price from $31 to $55 and the mini-ITX and micro-ATX AM1 motherboards with the FS1b socket range between $25 - $35. That means you could be looking at a fully integrated desktop platform for less than $60! Does AMD have your attention now? Read on to see how this platform performs."

Overclocking The AMD AM1 Athlon & Sempron APUs

Posted by: STAFF
With the initial Linux tests of the AMD Athlon 5150 / 5350 & Sempron 2650 / 3850 out of the way, I ran some basic overclocking tests on all four of these week-old AM1 APUs."

AMD “Kabini” AM1 Athlon 5350 APU (FS1b) Review
     Sun, Apr 13 2014 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at AMD’s new AM1 platform and given that I am writing with the realms of a traditional “tech enthusiast” website you’ll either think this is a great platform with potential, or just too slow to add anything new to the market. However, I am in the former, not the latter, camp – I can see the massive potential of AMD’s socketed Kabini APU. I have always been keen on budget and small form factor computing solutions; the Raspberry Pi is a great example of something that caught my eye. Of course at just $35 the Raspberry Pi is hardly comparable to AMD’s new Kabini socketed APUs that will cost a similar amount for just the APU. However, you can build a Kabini quad core system with a motherboard for just $64 – less than twice the cost of Raspberry Pi but no doubt with way more than twice the performance. The ethos with AMD’s AM1 platform is to bring the Athlon and Sempron product lines (that are orientated towards value for money and “upgradeability”) back with a bang.

AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini AM1 APU Review
     Fri, Apr 11 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new AM1 platform from AMD features the Kabini APU. The Kabini line isn't truly new, but rather a variant of the Kabini that is already released into the mobile market and is featured in AMD powered laptops and other x86 based mobile devices.

AMD Athlon 5350 APU On Linux
     Wed, Apr 09 2014 | 8:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that we`ve covered the general information about the new socketed Kabini APUs, here are our first benchmarks from the Athlon-branded Kabini APU we were seeded with by AMD: the Athlon 5350 with Radeon R3 Graphics. Let`s see how this 25-Watt APU with four processor cores can perform under Ubuntu 14.04 Linux."

AMD AM1 Athlon 5350 Reviewed: Low Power Low Price APU For the Masses
     Wed, Apr 09 2014 | 8:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AM1 is not the end-all, be-all of computing. It is a tightly focused product that is aimed at a certain market. It will not appeal to all consumers. It will appeal to some. It has shown itself to be a nicely performing part that is extremely energy efficient. AMD wont blow any hair back with this release, but they do deliver on a product that hits all the major checkboxes for modern home computing. Now we just have to see if the uptake in the consumer market was worth AMDs time. I think it might just be."

Intel Core i7-4930K vs Core i7-3930K SLI Gaming-Performance
     Fri, Apr 04 2014 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our CPU Gaming Perforamnce articles we're investigating what difference the processor makes regarding gaming performance. Other than that we we're sharing some thoughts whether an upgrade makes sense in our opinion or not. After having a close look at CPU gaming performance with a single GPU setup we now want to know what difference the CPU makes in a dual GPU setup, where we're using two high-end graphics cards. As usual, we're curious to see what performance gap there is going to be.

AMD A10-7850K "Kaveri" Unlocked Quad Core APU Review

Posted by: STAFF
AMD has launched their fourth generation of APU, codenamed “Kaveri”. Kaveri boasts increased processor power coupled with advanced Radeon graphics but there are other technologies, such as HSA, that balance memory loads via “compute” to both the CPU and GPU."

Intel Haswell Refresh CPU Details
     Wed, Apr 02 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As is well known by now, Intel has decided to delay their "Tick" - the 14 nm die shrink, and introduce a refresh of the Intel Haswell processors instead, starting with the desktop models. While these "Haswell Refresh" models have new model numbers, they are no different from the current Haswell processors - just faster at the same price. They will therefore replace (not supplement) the current Haswell processors, although they will co-exist until stocks of the older models have exhausted.

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.
