AMD Unveils 64-Bit ARM-Based Opteron A1100 SoC
     Thu, Jan 14 2016 | 4:09P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is adding a new family of Opteron processors to its enterprise line-up today, the Opteron A1100. Unlike AMD’s previous enterprise offerings, however, these new additions are packing ARM-based processor cores, not the X86 cores AMD has been producing for years. The Opteron A1100 series is designed for a variety of use cases and applications, including networking, storage, dense and power-efficient web serving, and 64-bit ARM software development. The Opteron A1100 System-on-Chip (SoC), was formerly codenamed “Seattle” and it represents the first 64-bit ARM Cortex-A57-based platform from AMD...

With Skylake Out, It's Becoming Easier To Build A Cheap Haswell
     Wed, Jan 13 2016 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that Skylake Xeon processors are appearing at major Internet retailers in sufficient quantities (such as the recently reviewed Intel Xeon E3 1245 v5), prices on older-generation Xeon CPUs are falling further. With prices on DDR3, SSDs, and Haswell-compatible motherboards also continuing to fall, it's possible to build a sufficiently powerful yet cheap Haswell Xeon system."

New AMD GPU Performance To Be Boosted By Linux 4.5
     Sun, Jan 03 2016 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last week I posted some AMD proprietary vs. open-source AMD Linux driver benchmarks using the very latest code. Left out of that earlier comparison was the R9 Fury series with Fiji GPU as well as newer graphics cards using the Tonga GPU. These graphics cards are supported by the AMDGPU DRM driver rather than the long-standing Radeon DRM driver. As I've been mentioning a lot this week, Linux 4.5 will bring the PowerPlay power management / re-clocking support to AMDGPU. In this article are showing benchmarks of the Fiji and Tonga GPUs under Linux 4.4 and Linux 4.5 DRM-Next along with the Catalyst 15.9 driver as shipped by Ubuntu 15.10."

AMD Announces GPUOpen Initiative, New Compiler And Drivers
     Tue, Dec 29 2015 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week, we posted a story about the AMD Radeon Technology Group’s plans to support FreeSync over HDMI and other upcoming display technologies like HDR and DisplayPort 1.3. In that story, we mentioned that AMD and the new RTG (Radeon Technologies Group) organization would have more news as the year drew to a close. Today, we can talk about their next major initiative in dirving GPU resources across a wider swath of new applications, known as "GPUOpen." In a nutshell, AMD is releasing a slew of open-source software and tools to give developers of games, heterogeneous applications, and HPC applications deeper access to the GPU and GPU resources...

How Intel Laptop Performance & Efficiency Evolved From Nehalem To Broadwell
     Thu, Dec 24 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last week I published a 7-way Linux laptop comparison with processors ranging from Sandy Bridge to Broadwell. Out of interest from readers in an even larger comparison, I've re-tested a Nehlaem-based "Clarksfield" laptop as well as a "Westmere" laptop to show how the raw performance and performance-per-Watt compare to the Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, and Broadwell devices."

Core i7-5960X vs. Core i7-5930K - Content Creation performance analysis
     Mon, Dec 21 2015 | 3:39P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups, which demand as much power as possible from their computers in order to accelerate processes in order to become more efficient and in the end increase revenue or add additional value to their projects. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, will benefit largely from fast processors as well as a powerful underlying system architecture. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors with every single article. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show in depth which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.

AMD gears up for opportunities arising from virtual reality and gaming
     Mon, Dec 21 2015 | 3:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Virtual reality (VR) has been a hot topic in recent years. The immersive experiences mainly rely on sufficient real-time image computation. Images are clearly and realistically presented, while image data are put in the correct positions within milliseconds, producing a complete VR visual experience. AMD is accelerating the development of VR applications to actively penetrate into the fields of VR and gaming. AMD's VR technology will enable brand new presentation experiences to a host of applications including simulation, gaming, entertainment, education, social media, travel, healthcare, real estate, and e-commerce.

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.
