ALIEN UNBOXING: Intel Core i7 8-Core Extreme Edition
     Wed, Oct 22 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can imagine, we tend to get a lot of boxes here at Hot Hardware. Some packages are small, some larger, some fancy, some pretty ho-hum. Intel shipped us a package this week. It came in a typical, brown cardboard box. However, inside that box was something more than a little flashy (it flashed us quite a bit actually), it was downright freaky...

Intel Core M Broadwell Speeds, Feeds And Performance
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's next-generation Broadwell Y (now known as the Core M processor) is set to ship on schedule for the end of the year. The company, occasionally flagged with criticism of its repeated delays and with its IDF show ramping up next week, is sharing more detail on the upcoming hardware, features and performance characteristics of its new 14nm mobile platform. We've previously offered up a 14nm deep-dive on how Broadwell Y came to be from a design, process and manufacturing standpoint. Today, we'll look more closely at how the new Core M processor's feature list, how it will be productized and some high level performance expectations as well...

XFX R7 250E Core Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These days even a lot of the low power cards still require dual PCI slots. So if you have a setup that requires a single slot video card solution it can be a little hard to find something that performs well and will also fit in your case. I don’t think people realize it, but XFX does a great job of creating a wide selection of cards to cover special uses like this. In the past we have seen models from them for people who need half height cards and even silent models. So it wasn’t a big shock when they sent over their R7 250 Core Edition single slot card. Really, the only question is how does it compare to the dual slot cards. If it’s anything like their past cards it should perform well, but the only way to find out for sure it to run it through our benchmark suite and see how it performs.

Intel Core i7-5960X SLI Gaming Performance Scaling
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our SLI gaming performance scaling articles we're going to investigate SLI scaling factors. Today we're combining an Intel Core i7-5960X processor with two GTX 980 graphics cards from ASUS. Apparently we want to find out how big the performance benefit is when we add a second GTX 980 to our test system. Apart from that we're investigating the results at 1080p, 1440p as well as 2160p (UHD).

Android On Intel x86 Tablet Performance Explored
     Fri, Oct 17 2014 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past few years, Intel has promised that its various low-power Atom-based processors would usher in a wave of low-cost Android and Windows mobile products that could compete with ARM-based solutions from its major competitors. And for years, we've seen no more than a trickle of hardware, often with limited availability and/or questionable pricing. Now, that's finally beginning to change. Intel's Bay Trail and Merrifield SoCs are starting to show up in attractive, full-featured, sub-$200 devices, and we've got one of them on the test bench today, the Acer Iconia Tab 8, along with a competing tablet from Dell, that we've shown you previously, the new for 2014 Dell Venue 8...

AMD FX-8370 & FX-8370E Processors Review
     Thu, Oct 16 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the release of the AMD FX-8370 and 8370E processors, there have been no grand design changes that will suddenly put AMD on top of the performance heap. Instead, these are products to cover those that have yet to make the switch from an older AM3 or AM3+ CPU or even a lesser CPU in the current AM3+ product stack. There is also a shift in how the FX series chips line up to the competition. Let’s have a closer look at the new FX-8370 and FX-8370E 8 core CPUs.”

Digital Storm Bolt II: Devil’s Canyon Inside
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 4:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Digital Storm Bolt II is a midsize system that fits some powerful components into a very sleek, sophisticated case – one that looks as good standing upright as it does on its side, which is an important feature for a computer that might end up on your home theater setup. At $3,481 (as tested), the Bolt II’s price tag might raise some eyebrows, but the price strikes us as unsurprising for this rig, which is a luxury PC, after all. Given the prices we’ve seen in luxury gaming PCs of late, the Bolt II certainly commands a premium, but it's not out of line with expecations, especially considering the Devil's Canyon CPU, Liquid Cooling, and GeForce GTX 780 Ti inside...

Intel Pentium K Anniversary G3258 Review
     Sun, Oct 12 2014 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the summer months Intel released a special chip to celebrate 20 years of the Pentium brand. Although this processor lived in the shadow of Devil’s Canyon it still has an exciting story to tell. G3258 aka Pentium K is an unlocked dual-core processor based around 22nm Haswell architecture. G3258 is regarded as Intel’s best “bang for buck” offering because it sits at the low-cost price of just £55 GBP / $70 USD and promises to be highly overclockable. Will these claims hold true?

Core 3300 was straightforward
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 4:46P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is a Swedish company specializing in computer enclosures, though much like Corsair (which started life as a memory company) they have diversified their product offerings with a line power supplies and all-in-one liquid CPU coolers, as well as case fans and accessories. The company cites Scandinavian design as the influence behind their aesthetic, with the minimalist approach of 'less is more'. With the “Core” series Fractal Design has just what that nomenclature indicates. An entry-level offering that still provides the essentials for a solid build.

First Actual Intel Broadwell Core M Benchmarks From IDF 2014
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 4:46P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We just got the scoop on some actual benchmarks run on Intel’s just-released Broadwell platform. We’ve gone into detail on Broadwell’s architecture and features and discussed expected power and performance characteristics in a couple of previous articles. But now we can finally show you some cold, hard numbers—not percentage comparisons versus previous platforms. We saw a 12.1” Broadwell-based, Core M 5Y70-powered Windows tablet live at IDF 2014, and have pictures of the actual benchmark runs posted for you here...

Core i7-5960X 5930K 5820K Overclocking & Performance
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 4:44P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We headed out to Microcenter and purchased two new Haswell-E processors, the Intel Core i7-5930K and Core i7-5820K CPUs. We have spent some time overclocking those and figuring out where the headroom is. Today we discuss overclocking these and what to expect with rock solid stability in mind.

AMD FX-8370 and FX-8370e Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Oct 09 2014 | 6:14A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD FX series 8370 and 8370e processors fill a nice gap in the FX lineup and it is nice to see that they are backwards compatible with the AM3+ socket. So for those of you still running a Phenom II processor these may be something you want to consider upgrading to."

iconBIT Toucan 4K Android Mini-PC Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 6:19A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

News: AMDs FX-8370E processor reviewed
     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 4:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has just shaken up its FX processor series with price cuts and a trio of new models. The additions are based on the same Vishera silicon as before, but the magic of binning has yielded a faster 125W top-of-the-line part as well as two eight-core offerings with 95W thermal envelopes. We compared one of those 95W offerings, the $200 FX-8370E, against Intel`s finest."

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.
