Intel Core I7 6700K Review, Skylake is Falling!
     Thu, Aug 06 2015 | 12:22A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's first Skylake offering, the I7 6700 with integrated High Definition Graphics HD530, landed squarely on our test bench about 72 hours ago. Based on a 14nm Fab and coming with a new Z170 chipset sliding into a 1151 LGA socket, the quad core has seen some architectural changes to the processor which we'll get into a little later.. The Haswell-E's little brother only sports 4 cores but the 6700K is threaded so you get the advantage of 8 threads and Intel did it at a base frequency of 4GHz and a turbo of 4.2GHz.

Intel Core i7-6700K & i5-6600K Skylake CPU Review
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 6:22P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Intel’s High-End Desktop (HEDT) CPUs are fast and fun, it’s on the mainstream platform where the chip manufacturing company really shifts volumes to gamers and DIY enthusiasts. Multiplier-unlocked Core i5 and i7 variants of the latest mainstream micro-architecture are the popularity champions on an annual basis; an affordable platform with good enough gaming and general performance from the CPUs translates into a recipe for success. Intel’s latest-and-greatest in desktop CPU technology – Skylake – aims to continue that trend, but this time with a platform that is designed to drive the market forward.

Intel i7-6700K Skylake
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 5:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well if it feels like I was just here talking about a newly launched Intel CPU it is because, well, I was. Intel ran into a few issues with their Broadwell launch and those issues pushed its launch back significantly. Well to their credit they didn’t let those issues slow down the Skylake launch, so today they are launching their new flagship consumer CPU at Gamescom. The reason they are launching there is because the first part of the Skylake launch is completely focused on gamers and overclockers. They are only launching two SKUs, their i7-6700K and the i5-6600K. Both are overclockable, high clock speed CPUs focused right at enthusiast and gamers who want to get the best possible performance without the heavy investment that an X99 build would cost them.

Intel Core i7-6700K and Z170 Chipset Review: Skylake For Enthusiasts
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 12:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel is holding many of the architectural details regarding its latest Skylake-based, 6th generation Core processors back until the Intel Developers Forum goes down in San Francisco in a couple of weeks, the company is announcing a pair of new processors and a companion chipset today. Skylake is a “tock” in Intel’s release cadence, which signifies a new microarchitecture, built using a mature process—in this case the same 14nm process that brought us Broadwell. The new Skylake-based Core i7-6700K and Core i5-6600K squarely target performance enthusiasts, and pack all of the goodness we’ve come to expect from Intel’s unlocked K-SKUs, in addition to some things that are sure to please the overclocking crowd. But, we’ll be hearing more about the rest of the Skylake line-up and other details in a few weeks...

Open-Source Linux Graphics: A10-7870K Godavari vs. i7-4790K
     Wed, Aug 05 2015 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I posted some interesting Linux graphics benchmarks comparing the open-source Mesa/Gallium3D drivers for the Iris Pro 6200 Graphics on the Intel Core i7-5775C "Broadwell" CPU compared to several discrete graphics cards. Those results were quite interesting with this new socketed Intel CPU able to blow discrete mid-range AMD Radeon graphics cards out of the water on the open-source Linux drivers. Here's the next part of the testing in showing how the Iris Pro 6200 graphics compare to Haswell HD Graphics 4600 and the current top-end APU, the AMD A10-7870K Godavari."

Intel Core i7-5775C Broadwell Processor Review
     Sat, Aug 01 2015 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel’s Broadwell launch has been quite interesting to say the least. If you can remember when we first heard of Broadwell its was rumored that it would not be a socketed processor, but rather it would come in the BGA package. On top of this rumor the actual launch of Broadwell was supposed to happen last year at the same time as the 9 Series chipset. Intel decided to delay the launch of its Broadwell processors till they were officially announced at Computex last month, luckily we did get socketed processors! Broadwell will be the “tick” in Intel’s “tick-tock” release schedule which we have seen for many years now where a “tick” is a node shrink of a previous microarchitecture and a “tock” is a new microarchitecture. The previous microarchitecture was Haswell at 22nm at now Broadwell will be 14nm. On top of just the node shrink Intel has really tried to focus on power efficiency, meaning that they are looking shooting for better performance using less power. Intel has also added their Iris Pro 6200 integrated graphics on the chip, which is a first for a socketed processor. On top of that the processor is fully unlocked and features 128 MB of eDRAM for the Iris Pro Graphics, which can also be overclocked. Broadwell comes at a very weird time for consumers as well. We have heard that Intel could be launching their Skylake processors and 100 Series chipset at Gamescom in August. Skylake will be the “tock” in Intel’s release schedule. So consumers could get Broadwell with a 9 Series motherboard or just wait a little bit for a Skylake processor with a 100 Series board. Having just a few months between launches does not give a lot of time for Intel to really push Broadwell or even get it out into the channel. As of writing this it is quite hard to find Broadwell Desktop processors at major online retailers. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship processor in the Broadwell desktop processor line, the i7-5775C. This quad-core processor has a base CPU frequency of 3.3 GHz with a turbo boost up to 3.7 GHz. While this might be slower than the 4770K it achieves this with far less power and has much more powerful integrated graphics."

Almost 10 Years of Intel CPUs Compared
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 2:39P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's hard to believe 15 years have passed since I first tested the Pentium 4 series. Although it was a pretty rubbish series, I do have many fond memories of testing the Core 2 Duo range, which arrived six long years later, and included the most popular enthusiast processor we've seen yet, the Q6600. Today we're going to take a look back at the Core 2 CPUs and compare them to the current generation Haswell Celeron, Pentium, Core i3, i5 and i7 parts.

Intel Core i7 5775C
     Fri, Jul 31 2015 | 2:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"That being said, Intel left some meat on the bone for the enthusiast when it came time to overclock the Core i7 5775C. A speed of 4.1GHz was not a problem for this core with nothing more than bumping the core clock multiplier to 41. Sweet and simple with nothing else needed. However, if you wanted a bit more, this chip loves to get fed a steady diet of voltage to make it happen, to a point. Up to 4.3GHz was rock solid using my 2400MHz Patriot memory kit by setting the core voltage up to 1.375v. Any higher and you could feed it voltage to get some benchmark stability, but that was it, so I stayed at 4.3GHz with a 40 cache ring ratio.”

"Last week I started posting AMD A10-7870K Linux benchmarks for this "Godavari" APU that's effectively a Kaveri Refresh and slightly faster for its four CPU cores and Radeon R7 Graphics over the former high-end Kaveri, the A10-7850K. In today's articles are some benchmarks of the Radeon R7 Graphics on the A10-7870K when running Ubuntu and testing the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver against Catalyst on Linux."

Intel Core i7-5775C With Iris Pro Graphics Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have covered Intel’s Broadwell microarchitecture extensively over the last few months. The relatively high-performance and low-power characteristics of Broadwell make it a good fit for a wide range of devices and systems. And as such, Broadwell has found its way into everything from notebooks and tablets, to an array of All-In-Ones and Intel’s own NUC ultra-small-form-factor systems. Broadwell, however, just recently—as in the last few weeks—made it to the DIY and full-sized desktop market. 14nm Broadwell processors weren’t originally destined for the channel, but Intel ultimately changed course and launched a handful of 5th Generation Core processors, the most powerful of which we’ll show you here today, the Core i7-5775C...

Intel preparing to release notebook Skylake in October
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 1:37A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following the upcoming release of desktop Skylake processors at Gamescom in Germany in August, Intel's Skylake processors for notebooks will start showing up in October. The CPU giant is planning to launch a total of 18 notebook Skylake processors in the fourth quarter, looking to help boost notebook demand. However, because many notebook brand vendors are still suffering from inventory issues, they are continuing to adjust their schedules for Skylake products to minimize the impact.

Posted by: STAFF
Back on May 28th, 2015 AMD introduced the new A10-7870K Accelerated Processing Units (APU) as part of the Kaveri refresh. Legit Reviews just got our hands on the AMD A10-7870K APU and it’s our first ‘new’ APU that we’ve been able to test since our Kaveri launch article in July 2014 that featured the A10-7800 and A8-7600 APU’s. When it comes to the architecture there really aren’t any changes as it’s using the same Kaveri CPU core with Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) and Radeon R7 graphics with the Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. AMD is releasing this new processor to help booster is aimed at the home office family PC market that just in time for system builders and the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) PC market to hopefully build a new PC for the upcoming Microsoft Windows 10 launch.
