AMD A10-7890K
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:12P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On our review bench today is the AMD A10-7890K, the fastest APU yet released by the chipmaker for the budget computing market segment. Priced at $149.99 USD or lower, the A10-7890K boasts a 4.1/4.3GHz base/Turbo core clock for a maximum theoretical 1.02 TFLOPS of compute performance, integrated Radeon R7 class graphics, and has the option of coming with AMD's near-silent 125W heatsink dubbed the "Wraith". AMD is gearing this APU as an ideal low-cost solution for the online gaming demographic that may not necessarily prioritize discrete high-end graphics cards for their systems.

Intel Pentium G4400 Processor Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel releases a new processor family, we immediately start seeing reviews and opinions on the enthusiast grade processors such as the i5-6600K and the i7-6700K, both of which are great processors, however there is a downside; they are some of the more expensive processors. Not everybody wants to spend a lot of money on a new processor nor does everybody need the added features and power of these processors. Because of this, Intel releases a range of processors that start at $64.99 with free shipping, such as the Intel Pentium G4400, and quickly moves up in price depending on your need.

AMD A10-7890K, A10-7860K, and Athlon X4 880K @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Apr 26 2016 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About two months ago AMD did a large product line refresh that focused around the newly introduced Wraith Cooler, at the time we took a look at the cooler. Then closer to our LAN event they sent out samples for some of the other CPUs and APUs introduced. In their FM2+ mainstream line they refreshed the Kaveri APUs as well as an Athlon X4 CPU. Well with our LAN event keeping my schedule tied up I’m just now finally getting a chance to see what the new A10-7860K sample and Athlon X4 880K that they sent out a that time. Then on top of that just last week the A10-7890K came in to round things out. So today I’m going to run through AMDs FM2+ refresh and see how they perform. I’m especially interested I the Athlon X4 880K to find out if it’s a worthwhile budget replacement for someone considering an AM3+ build.

AMD discrete GPU market share expected to rise
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:57A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SoC-based graphics cards were the most widely adopted GPU product in 2015 with a market share over 70%. CPU with integrated GPU was the second-largest GPU products, but its market share has been dropping every year because of the PC market's weakening demand. Shipments of discrete graphics cards have also been dropping along with the weakening PC shipments, but AMD's and Nvidia's new GPU architectures are expected to help heat up related shipments in 2016. AMD's new architecture, which has advantages in supporting DirectX 12, will give AMD a chance to narrow its gap with Nvidia.

AMD Athlon X4 880K
     Tue, Apr 19 2016 | 4:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at the AMD Athlon X4 880K, a quad-core FM2+ processor with 4.0/4.2GHz base/Turbo clocks and unlocked multiplier priced at under $100 USD. It's designed for enthusiasts on a budget looking for the fastest multi-core Athlon processor yet without any integrated GPU to add to the cost. It even shares the 95W TDP of AMD's higher-end APUs for optimized power consumption that further leads to more overclocking headroom.

Intel Compute Stick (2nd Generation)
     Sat, Apr 16 2016 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in early 2015 at CES Intel showed us a really cool device that they were really excited about. It was their Compute Stick, which was an entire PC in the form factor of an HDMI stick. It is pretty awesome that with this device you can turn any HDMI display into a computer! The tagline of “Connect. Compute. It’s that simple.” really fits the Compute Stick perfectly. Intel released the first version of the Compute Stick in 2015 and now it is on its second generation. The second generation makes improvements over the first generation product, inside you have an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 processor (Cherry Trail), 2GB of DDR3L memory, and 32GB of onboard storage. Intel has also added a second USB port (compared to the single port on the 1st generation) and has improved wireless connectivity with 802.11ac wireless and Bluetooth 4.2 with a 2×2 antenna. Let’s take the 2nd generation Intel Compute Stick for a spin and see what it can really do!"

Intel’s Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition 10-Core Broadwell-E Monster
     Wed, Apr 13 2016 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's a good thing Intel waited until the weekend to let slip a mention of its forthcoming Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition processor on its website, because had the Santa Clara chip maker jumped the gun, everyone might assume it was an April Fool's Day prank. That's not the case for what we surmise is a mighty 10-core CPU. To be clear, Intel hasn't launched the Core i7-6950X, not yet anyway. But what the company did do is update its support website for its latest Management Engine software, listing the much anticipated Broadwell-E part as a compatible chip. So in that way, you can say Intel confirmed its existence, whether that was intentional or someone on the company's web team jumped the gun.

Building a 32-Thread Xeon Monster PC for Less Than the Price of a Haswell-E Core
     Thu, Apr 07 2016 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Originally released in 2012 for a whopping $1,550 and beyond, thousands of Xeon E5-2670 CPUs hit the second hand market last year as massive data centers upgraded their servers. This 4-year old CPU delivers 8-cores clocked at 2.6GHz with a 3.3GHz turbo frequency and a large 20MB L3 cache, but with supply overwhelming demand prices have plummeted to just $70. Or seen from another perspective: it's now possible to build an insanely affordable 16-core/32-thread beast for less than a Haswell-E Core i7.

Intel Xeon Processor E5 v4 Family Debut: Dual E5-2697 v4 With 72 Threads
     Thu, Mar 31 2016 | 4:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is officially launching a brand new series of Xeon processors today, the Xeon Processor E5 v4. Unlike mainstream desktop products, which feature Intel’s latest core technologies like the Skylake-based Core i7-6700K, mission-critical, big-iron parts like the Xeon E5 v4 series are more complex and go through much more qualification, and as such tend to leverage core technologies that have long been proven in the consumer space. The the Xeon Processor E5 v4 family, for example, is based on Broadwell, or more specifically Broadwell-EP.
