Intel Launches 8th Generation Processors With 40 Percent Performance Gains
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 5:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is ready to launch their 8th generation processors and are starting by releases a handful of ultra-low voltage 15 Watt TDP U-series processors today. These processors are targeted to laptops, 2-in-1 convertibles or any small form factor that needs a powerful performance with a low thermal envelope. What makes these processors a little confusing is the fact that these are based on a refresh of the Kaby Lake architecture and are what Intel is calling ‘Kaby Lake Refresh’....

Intel Core i7 7820X Linux Benchmarks
     Sat, Aug 19 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While the June launch of Intel's X-Series processors took the attention with the top-end Core i9 7900X Skylake-X and Core i7 7740X Kabylake-X processors, coming in several hundred dollars less than the i9-7900X is the i7-7820X, which still packs a very hard punch. We have now received a Core i7 7820X for Linux testing at Phoronix and are beginning with a round of benchmarks on Ubuntu."

Athlon II X3 vs. Ryzen 3: How AMD's Performance Has Evolved
     Thu, Aug 17 2017 | 6:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Noticing I had an AMD Athlon II X3 425 system still racked up and hadn't been powered on in a long time, I decided to decomission it, but not before running some final benchmarks on that system. Having the recent AMD Ryzen 3 1200 / 1300X CPUs I decided it would make for an interesting comparison how the old Athlon II X3 compares to AMD's low-end CPU of today, the Ryzen 3 processors based on Zen. Here are those benchmarks that also include performance-per-Watt and overall AC system power consumption numbers."

AMD non-stop in 2017
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 9:05P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I feel like I have been writing about AMD non-stop in 2017. Starting with the release of Ryzen 7 and following through last week’s review of the HEDT Threadripper processor, AMD has gone from a nearly-dormant state in 2015-2016 to a wildly active and successful organization with more than a dozen new product launches under its belt. Today we will reveal the company's first consumer products based on the new Vega GPU architecture, thrusting the Radeon brand back into the fight at the $400+ price segments.

Intel Core i9-7900X Processor Review
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the Intel Core i9-7900X Skylake-X processor, which is Intel’s High-End Desktop Platform (HEDT) 10-core, 20-thread CPU (3.3 GHz base/4.5 GHz Boost/13.75MB Cache) that has 44 PCIe lanes. The Intel Core i9-7900X sounds like a powerhouse and it better be since it commands around $1,000 in the retail market. What is crazy though, is that price is over 40% less than the Intel Core i7-6950X processor cost. Let's take a look at how this processor performs on our CPU test bench!

Ryzen 7 1700 vs. Core i7-7820X: 8-Core Royal Rumble
     Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"uying an 8-core processor was a wallet ripping affair prior to the arrival of Ryzen. In absence of competition, the Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6900K was ridiculously overpriced at $1,050. Intel has had to make changes to its HEDT platform by releasing the Core i7-7820X in response to the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 7 1700. However, I'm not quite sure Intel understands how competition works. Whereas AMD's solution launched with an MSRP of $330 and can be readily purchased online for as little as $290 today, Intel is still asking $600 for the i7-7820X. Worse still, the cheaper Ryzen 7 1700 can be happily paired with a $100 motherboard, while the pricier Core i7-7820X requires one that costs $220+."
