AMD FX-8320E Performance On Linux
     Mon, Jan 26 2015 | 12:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in September AMD announced new FX CPUs that included the FX-8370, FX-8370E, and FX-8320E. Back then we reviewed the FX-8370/FX-8370E CPUs under Linux but at the time didn`t have our hands on the more affordable FX-8320E processor. In December AMD sent over the FX-8320E and so for the past few weeks I`ve been happily using this new Vishera CPU."

Intel i7-5960X Haswell-E @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it feels like we were just right here not to long ago talking about Intel’s latest CPU it is because we were. They launched their Devils Canyon CPUs about two and a half months ago and here we are again. The thing is, today’s launch is designed to be sold alongside of the I7-4790K. This is because officially the 4790K and everything else on the 1150 socket are considered mainstream products. The i7-5960X Haswell-E CPU I will be looking at is an enthusiast product. That means there aren’t limitations like the limited number of PCIe Lanes that the mainstream line runs into all of the time. On top of that we have twice as many cores, twice the ram, DDR4, and a big price tag like all of the other flagship CPUs. The 5960X will certainly not be for the light hearted or budget builds, but I’m excited to see how it performs compared to the model before it and the extremely fast mainstream chips that sell beside it. While I’m at it I’m going to see what king of room you might have left when it comes time to overclock as well.

Intel’s Pentium G3258 - Budget Overclocker’s Dream or Big Bust?
     Thu, Jan 22 2015 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition CPU represents the first time Intel has allowed for overclocking on a Pentium series part since the introduction of it’s Core family of processors in 2009. What makes this worth writing about is the fact that this is Intel’s first enthusiast grade chip to be released at under $100. Thus, making it very appealing to users looking to get the best bang-for-buck, or those looking to get their hands on an inexpensive overclocking chip. As a first time overclocking chip, similar to the Core 2 Duo E2160 which retailed at around the same price and overclocked insanely well, it’s easy to see where Intel is going with this new Pentium.

Intel's strategically timed CES 2015 launch
     Wed, Jan 21 2015 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's strategically timed CES 2015 launch of their new 5th Generation Core Series processors for notebooks, was met with a reasonably warm reception, though it's always difficult to rise above the noise, with the sea of announcements from competitors and the like. Performance claims for Intel's new chip promise major gains in graphics and more modest increases in standard compute applications. However, the biggest bet Intel placed on the new Broadwell-U architecture is performance-per-watt throughput and battery life in premium notebook products that are now in production with major OEM partners...

Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E LGA2011-V3 Processor
     Mon, Jan 19 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Haswell-E is here. Well, technically, it’s been “here” for a while but has undergone refinements throughout the last year to ready itself for launch. One of those refinements was more performance and cooler operating temperatures. Without creating a whole new architecture, the only feasible direction, given the current TDP and heat challenges facing Haswell, was to refine the silicon, add more cores, lower the core voltage, and assign a frequency that can be maintained across those cores. The result is the new Core i7-5960X Haswell-E processor that uses 8 physical cores and 16 threads to flex its muscle."

Running AMD's FX-8370 / FX-8370E On Linux
     Fri, Jan 16 2015 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD today is rolling out three new FX-Series processors (the FX-8320E, FX-8370E, and FX-8370) while cutting prices on their existing Vishera AM3+ FX processors. AMD sent over the new FX-8370 and FX-8370E CPUs last week to Phoronix (the FX-8320E is still forthcoming) so we are here with the rundown on the Linux performance of these new FX CPUs compared to a wide variety of other Intel and AMD Linux systems with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS."

AMD FX-8370 and FX-8370E Processors Review
     Thu, Jan 15 2015 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summary: Although you cannot call the new FX-series processors a re-invention, their new sensibly competitive place in the market segment is hard to ignore. AMD did always tout the virtues of upgradeability and these new additions to the FX lines are proof of that commitment to their fan base.

Intel Core i7-5960X “Haswell-E” Processor
     Thu, Jan 15 2015 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have been hearing about Intel’s next-generation Haswell-E processors for some time now and they have finally arrived. For people running older HEDT (high-end desktop) systems it has been quite a while waiting around for an upgrade. The Haswell-E HEDT (high-end desktop) lineup is at hand and it is made up three high end enthusiast processors, the Core i7-5960X, Core i7-5930K, and Core i7-5820K. Today we are going to be taking a look at the flagship processor of this group or as I call it the big daddy of the bunch, the Core i7-5960X. This extreme edition processor features 8 cores, 16 threads, 20 MB of L3 cache, a 40-lane PCI-Express root complex and DDR4 support. This will be Intel’s first 8-core desktop processor as well as the first consumer platform to support DDR4 memory, so it is a very exciting time for people looking to upgrade to the newest offering. The Core i7-5960X will have a base frequency of 3.0 GHz and a turbo frequency of 3.5 GHz. This processor is not for the faint of heart though; it has an MSRP of $999! ThinkComputers is excited to get this tough guy on the test bench and see what he can do!"

Pentium J2900 CPU Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Jan 13 2015 | 1:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, we analyzed the ASRock Q2900M motherboard, which brings an on-board Bay Trail-D Pentium J2900 CPU. In this article, we will compare the performance of this processor to other three low-cost, low-TDP CPUs that we reviewed recently: the Sempron 2650, the Celeron J1800, and the A4-5000 to see whether the Pentium J2900 is faster than its competitors or not."

Intel Announces 5th Gen Core Mobile Processors
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 6:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Consumer Electronics Show is about to get underway, and Intel is leading the pack with a set of CPU announcements. It has been six months since the company took the lid off its first 14nm processor, the Core M, but that CPU is designed for the ultramobile, low-power market. Consumers who wanted to tap Intel's 14nm products in more mainstream notebook hardware had to wait a bit longer until the Q1 2015 time frame. This new SoC is a "tick" in Intel's tick-tock plan, which means it's mostly a die shrink of the existing Haswell architecture -- at least, on the CPU side. On the GPU side, there's a bevy of improvements and advances, and the video decoder block has been beefed up with dual bit stream decoders in the high-end (GT3) hardware...

Core i7-5930K vs. Core i7-5820K
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 1:58P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups, which demand as much power as possible from their computers in order to accelerate processes in order to become more efficient and in the end increase revenue or add additional value to their projects. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, will benefit largely from fast processors as well as a powerful underlying system architecture. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors with every single article. 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 in depth which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.

Athlon 5150 CPU Review
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 1:55P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Recently, we reviewed the Sempron 2650, which is a low-TDP CPU (or APU), comparing it to the "Bay Trail-D" Celeron J1800 CPU, since both are the most inexpensive dual-core desktop processors from AMD and Intel, respectively. We also tested the A4-5000, and the Pentium J2900, which are quad-core CPUs for the same market segment. Today, we bring you the review of the Athlon 5150, a quad-core processor that also competes in the same market share. Let's check if is it faster than the other low-cost processors we tested so far."

Intel i7 4790K Devil’s Canyon Processor Review
     Sun, Jan 11 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel talked a lot about the Haswell Refresh processors codenamed Devil’s Canyon, and they were very excited about it . The newer Haswell (codename: Devil’s Canyon) came with certain improvements in comparison to earlier processors. Difference was mostly on the physical side of the processor. Intel used a ‘next generation thermal interface material’ in the hopes that it would please enthusiasts and overclockers who found that older model Haswell processors used a thermal paste under the integrated heatsink, though many would have preferred to see Intel using solder.The second difference was to provide more capacitors for the processor to enable smooth power delivery for the processor’s die. When the Haswell processors came out and overclockers started experimenting, It was reported that because of this implementation, it created a hot spot on the chip, which was one of the reason that affected overclocking. Intel assures that extra capacitors and the new thermal interface will provide a better overclocking potential to its users.

: AMD FX-8320E AM3+ Processor Performance Review
     Fri, Jan 09 2015 | 5:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD released a slew of new FX-series CPUs in September, 2014, including the FX-8370, FX-8370E, and the subject of our review, the FX-8320E. This is the low end of AMD’s eight-core FX series of enthusiast CPUs, and the “E” suffix marks it as a low-power variant; nonetheless, AMD touts it as a viable CPU for a gaming system. Benchmark Reviews will run this CPU through our gauntlet of tests to see how true this is.
