Intel Core i5 2500K Linux Performance
     Sat, Jan 29 2011 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this month Intel released their first "Sandy Bridge" processors to much excitement. However, for Linux users seeking to utilize the next-generation Intel HD graphics found on these new CPUs, it meant problems. Up to this point we have largely been looking at the graphics side of Sandy Bridge, and while we have yet to publish any results there due to some isolated issues, on the CPU side its Linux experience and performance has been nothing short of incredible. Here are the first Linux benchmarks of the Intel Core i5 2500K processor."

AMD Athlon II X3 455: Unlocked hidden Phenom
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Athlon II X3 455 happens to be one of those processors. On the surface, the X3 455 is only a triple core. However, hiding in the shadows is a sleeping core and cache that has the possibility to be accessed. The X3 455 comes with a stock speed of 3.3GHz. There is a max TDP of 95 watts. In continued AMD fashion, the X3 455 is a 100MHz step up from the X3 450. The Athlon II still remains AM2+/AM3 compatible. Stock settings give 1.5MB of L2 cache."

Posted by: STAFF
“Today we're seeing the release of a couple new AMD processors. They are the Phenom II X4 840 and the Phenom II X4 975. AMD has been on a roll lately, shooting out two new sets of processors within a month. There's one thing we should get out of the way – they're still not Bulldozer though. With Intel’s Sandy Bridge now in the mix, let’s see how things shake out.”

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BE Hex-Core Processor
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We saw back in September AMD released six new CPUs to add to their product mix. Today AMD is showcasing three new processors, including a new flagship model, the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition. The other two processors are a Phenom II X2 565 Black Edition, and an Athlon II X3 455. All three of these processors are simply 100 MHz speed-bumps over previous top-end models.

CPU Performance Comparison Guide Rev. 4.2
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This article compiles the best benchmark results we collected of various CPU models using x264 HD Benchmark 3.0, a free CPU benchmark developed by graysky, Dashken and Adrian Wong. This CPU performance comparison guide currently covers 275 different CPU models but this is just the beginning. We will keep updating the results as new results come in, so please contribute your results. If you would like to participate in this endeavor, head over to the x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 page and download a copy. After you obtain your benchmark results, simply post them in the official forum thread of x264 HD Benchmark 3.0. Please post your results even if your processor is already listed in the comparison. This is because we will use your results if they are better than the results currently listed in the comparison.

AMD Phenom II X6 100T Black Edition (LostCircuits)
     Mon, Jan 24 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition (I wish they would just call it “Boom” or something else short) is the fastest CPU ever released by AMD. At a non-turbo frequency of 3.3 GHz and scaling up to 3.7 GHz in single threaded loads, this is a screaming fast CPU but it also draws a bit more power than its predecessor. On a system level, adding an extra 5-10 W does not really make that much of a difference, especially since that number is hit (in direct comparison) only under full load, at which the 1100 does get the job done a bit faster than the previous versions. So, the net power delta over an average usage pattern may be almost a wash. By the end of the day, it is still a laudable move by AMD to release this new speed grade, especially since it makes its predecessors even more affordable. On the other hand, there is a real need for AMD for a refresh. Bulldozer cannot be delayed much longer without AMD losing terrain again against Intel, the switches are already set with Sandy Bridge hitting the market within a few weeks from now. It is a tough world to be in as a CPU manufacturer. On the high end, Intel is dominating. At the low end, ARM is nibbling on everybody’s heels with the latest OMAP processors coming dangerously close to performance levels where they make sense in net-books and entry-level laptops. It is the red queen paradigm in its purest form all over: you have to run as fast as you can just to stay where you are – with respect to the market place and by extension, to keeping the company going and the X6 1100T BE is only a band aid in this scenario, as much as we like it.

AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE & 840 Quad-Core Processors
     Sun, Jan 23 2011 | 11:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD is releasing two new processors for the main-stream market. First up is a new top-end quad-core, the 3.6 GHz Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition. The X4 975 BE is simply a 100 MHz speed bump over the already familiar X4 970 BE with no other design changes. The second new processor is a budget quad-core, the 3.2 GHz Phenom II X4 840. Previously the 8xx series chips have had 4MB of L3 cache instead of the traditional 6MB, but this new X4 840 is a little different.

AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition and X4 840 CPU Review
     Sun, Jan 23 2011 | 10:34P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AMD Phenom II 975 Black Edition is a speed bump in the line and has all of the attributes you have come to expect in a Phenom II. The Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition is built on tried and true C3 silicon 45 nanometer process for the AM3 socket and has a stock core frequency of 3.6Ghz. Featuring 2Mb of L2 and 6Mb of L3 cache and an unlocked multiplier, the Phenom II X4 975BE is aimed squarely at the enthusiast. The 3.2Ghz Phenom II 840 is a little different. Though it bears the Phenom name, it is built on the Propus core more commonly associated with the Athlon II line. And like the Athlon II, the Phenom II X4 840 has a 2Mb L2 cache, but lacks any L3 cache. The Phenom II X4 840 is also more energy efficient with a 95 watt TDP, compared to the 125 watts of the 975BE and other Phenom II quad cores CPUs. Priced at $99.00, it is an entry level in the Phenom lineup, but at 3.2Ghz it is an entry level that promises plenty of raw power."

Core i7-2600K CPU Review

Posted by: STAFF
"Intel launched this month their new CPUs based on the "Sandy Bridge" architecture. Let's check the performance of the new Core i7-2600K (3.4 GHz) and compare it to the CPU it came to replace, the Core i7-875K (2.93 GHz), and to the most expensive CPU from AMD, the Phenom II X6 1100T (3.3 GHz)."

"Both companies were expecting a performance and feature boost when 28 nm comes online, but it is certainly later than most everyone had planned for. Instead, we are seeing new designs on the current 40 nm process, and will continue to see derivative parts being introduced over the next six to seven months. Then it will be the buildup to the 28 nm generation. So, we really do not expect to see a big jump in features and performance throughout this next year. Cayman and GTX 580 will essentially rule the roost as the top performing single chip solutions."

Call of Duty: Black Ops GPU & CPU Performance In-depth
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two years ago we published an in-depth performance review of the fifth major installment in the Call of Duty series, World at War. Since then Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released almost exactly a year ago. Now on to a successive and very successful yearly release, Call of Duty: Black Ops arrives, paving the way for even more games in the series. Developed by Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops debuts a new theme around the Cold War conflict. We test 19 graphics card configurations, using AMD and Nvidia GPUs that ranged from the uber expensive models to budget-minded offerings.
