Intel Core i7-7700K & Core i5-7600K Kaby Lake CPU Review
     Sun, Jan 08 2017 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kaby Lake is upon us. With Intel killing off its Tick-Tock product cycle in 2016, Kaby Lake ushers in the new ‘Optimisation’ phase of a Process-Architecture-Optimisation strategy. What does that mean? Kaby Lake is effectively a barely tweaked version of Skylake which uses Intel’s optimised 14nm+ process technology resulting in improved frequencies.

Kaby Lake-S from Intel
     Fri, Jan 06 2017 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It probably doesn't surprise any of our readers that there has been a tepid response to the leaks and reviews that have come out about the new Core i7-7700K CPU ahead of the scheduled launch of Kaby Lake-S from Intel. Replacing the Skylake-based 6700K part as the new "flagship" consumer enthusiast CPU, the 7700K has quite a bit stacked against it. We know that Kaby Lake is the first in the new sequence of tick-tock-optimize, and thus there are few architectural changes to any portion of the chip. However, that does not mean that the 7700K and Kaby Lake in general don't offer new capabilities (HEVC) or performance (clock speed).

Intel 7th Generation Core i7 7700K Processor
     Thu, Jan 05 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As an overclocking enabled Core series processor, the i7 7700K does indeed have some overclocking chops. A baseline 4.2GHz clock speed is pretty solid for the average person, but running at close to 5GHz is really stellar. The last processor I had that came anywhere close with reasonable voltages applied was a 2600K. Now, getting anywhere close over the past few generations of Intel processors was fraught with temperatures that could not be contained with anything less than a full-on water cooling system under load when you started cranking on the voltage. I was surprised, pleasantly at this point, that even running at 5GHz was possible with an AIO cooling solution. I was able to keep this processor at 4950MHz under a Prime95 load for hours without hitting temperatures that would throttle the processor speed. By using 1.36v applied in the BIOS, and tuning the rest of the voltage manually, the maximum temperature I hit was 94 °C with an AIO. Now, you can always tune for higher speeds by using the AVX offset in the BIOS, but I am happy with where this chip went. The performance and overclocking capabilities of Kaby Lake are a refreshing change of pace from the hot running chips of previous generations.”

AMD's new dynamic frame-rate control feature
     Tue, Dec 20 2016 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our initial test of Radeon Chill, AMD's new dynamic frame-rate control feature in its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition drivers, didn't quite work as expected. Once we got our hands on the release version of that software, however, the Radeons in our test rigs definitely felt the Chill. We retested the software using the popular Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to see what Chill can do for responsiveness, power usage, and noise levels.
