AMD prepares Zen for CES 2017 launch
     Tue, Oct 04 2016 | 11:12A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following the releases of its Bristol Ridge-based desktop processors in September 2016, AMD's Zen-based CPUs and its corresponding high-end X370 chipsets will make their arrivals at CES 2017 in January. To achieve a smooth transition, AMD has begun adjusting product prices in order to accelerate inventory digestion. However, since Zen-based products are unlikely to start mass shipments until after February, they are unlikely to start contributing profits until the second quarter 2017, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Intel has begun delivering its next-generation notebook-use Kaby Lake processors and will start shipping comparable desktop-use CPUs by year-end 2016, according to sources from Taiwan PC makers.

AMD's seventh-generation APUs
     Wed, Sep 07 2016 | 1:58P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's seventh-generation APUs, code-named Bristol Ridge, have been available for a couple months in mobile systems already. The company is now bringing Bristol to the desktop, along with the Socket AM4 platform that will eventually underpin Zen CPUs. We take an early look at Bristol on the desktop and what it might mean for the Zen CPUs to come.

Intel 7th Gen Kaby Lake Processor Architecture Details Released

Intel believes that we are on the cusp of a new era for the PC and that the PC continually evolves and adapts to the trends around us. The new PCs coming to market now are the most innovative ever with not only touch interfaces, but IR cameras, pens, bio-metric inputs and so on. The PC is still on the leading edge for the immersive industry and the new Intel 7th Generation Core processors will help keep it that way. Read on to find out why!

Intel Kaby Lake Revealed
     Tue, Aug 30 2016 | 3:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is readying a new family of processors based on its next-gen Kaby Lake microarchitecture. We’ve heard quite a bit about Kaby Lake over the last few months, and were even able to show you it in action last week while covering IDF, but today we’ve got many more details to share on the microarchitecture that will be foundation of Intel’s upcoming 7th Generation Core processors. If you’re unfamiliar with Kaby Lake, it is the follow-up product to last year’s Skylake. Kaby Lake borrows heavily from Skylake; its CPU cores, cache structure, and graphics engine are similar, and Kaby Lake is still manufactured using a 14nm process. There have been a number of enhancement made to Kaby Lake, however, that not only improve overall performance and efficiency, but enhance its multimedia capabilities and responsiveness as well...

7th Generation Core processor family
     Tue, Aug 30 2016 | 2:56P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While spending time learning about upcoming products and technologies at the Intel Developer Forum earlier this month, I sat down with the company to learn about the release of Kaby Lake, now known as the 7th Generation Core processor family. We have been seeing and reporting on the details of Kaby Lake for quite some time here on PC Perspective – it became a more important topic when we realized that this would be the product that officially killed off the ‘tick-tock’ design philosophy that Intel had implemented years ago and that was responsible for much of the innovation in the CPU space over the last decade. Today Intel released new information about the 7th Gen CPU family and Kaby Lake. Let’s dive into this topic with a simple and straight forward mindset in how it compares to Skylake.

Zen is a large departure for AMD
     Sat, Aug 27 2016 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sadly for AMD their investment in the “Bulldozer” architecture was misplaced for where the industry was heading. While we certainly see far more software support for multi-threaded CPUs, IPC is still extremely important for most workloads. The original Bulldozer was somewhat rushed to market and was not fully optimized, while the “Piledriver” based Vishera products fixed many of these issues we have not seen the non-APU products updated to the latest Steamroller and Excavator architectures. The non-APU desktop market has been served for the past four years with 32nm PD-SOI based parts that utilize a rebranded chipset base that has not changed since 2010.

Intel launched their Datacenter 'P' Series
     Fri, Aug 26 2016 | 12:21P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Despite Optane looming on the horizon, Intel has opted to push 3D NAND into their enterprise datacenter parts. While they have stuck with MLC for their new P3520 Series SSD, we can tell that first generation IMFT 3D NAND was designed more for capacity than for high performance. Sure the P3520 isn't the fastest SSD we've tested, but it is no slouch and offers great performance consistency. The winning result here is cost - an Intel Datacenter SSD for less than $0.50/GB is just awesome, and the performance hit becomes less relevant when you consider that Intel's Optane is coming in just a few months. The P3520 should make for a great low-cost NAND tier once Optane is around to handle more demanding workloads. Overall, the Intel DC P3520 is a great enterprise SSD at an outstanding price."

AMD Athlon X4 880K Review
     Mon, Aug 22 2016 | 1:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the realm of desktop processors it is no secret that the AMD gears have slowed down, cautiously preparing the up and coming 'Zen' microarchitecture. In the meantime, AMD remind us that those gears have not stopped with a small wave of refreshed processors with higher stock frequencies. Naturally this comes with a more mature and reliable fabrication process. Alongside the higher clocked A10-7890K APU they released the Athlon X4 880K, the highest clocked Athlon processor to date. Out the box speeds sit at a reasonable (for current AMD architecture) 4/4.2 GHz, and being a K series CPU, one would be correct in assuming that it comes with an unlocked multiplier.

AMD's A10-7870K APU
     Sun, Aug 21 2016 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In order to find out just how much better the 125W thermal solution will perform, I am going to test the A10-7870K APU mounted on a Gigabyte F2A88X-UP4 motherboard provided by AMD with a set of 16 GB (2 x 8) DDR3 RAM modules set at 2133 MHz speed. I will then run thermal and fan speed tests so a comparison of the results will provide a meaningful data set to compare the near-silent 125W cooler to an older model AMD cooling solution."

AMD Further Unveils Zen Processor
     Fri, Aug 19 2016 | 11:21A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been talking about the claimed 40% IPC (Instructions Per Clock) improvement of AMD's forthcoming Zen processor, versus the company's existing Excavator core, for ages it seems. We also know Zen's initial availability is slated for later this year, with a lager-scale roll-out planned for early 2017. Finally, AMD has also made it known previously that it will be standardizing on the new socket AM4 platform, which has support for DDR4 memory, PCIe Gen 3, USB 3.1 Gen2 10Gbps, NVMe, and SATA Express. There is already a lot of Zen-related information out there if you know where to look – like right here at HH, of course – but we’ve got much more meat on Zen to share with you today.

Intel Core i7-6950X Broadwell-E Review

Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Core i7-6950X Broadwell-E CPU arrived Technic3D. We will check the High-End Processor from Intel on a 2011-3-Mainboard with DDR4 Ram, against the Intel Core i7-4790K, 6700K, 5960X, 5820K, i5-6500, AMD A10-6800K and many more. More see you in the following Review."
