AMD Kaveri Review: A10-7850K, A10-7700K and A8-7600
     Thu, Mar 06 2014 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you follow our website and the technology industry more broadly then you may have heard a lot about Kaveri since it was officially launched on January 14th 2014. Kaveri is the codename for AMD's fourth generation of desktop APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) after Llano, Trinity and Richland. In successive generations we have seen AMD's APUs grow a lot stronger mainly in terms of graphics performance but also bringing refinements in terms of power consumption and CPU performance as well as new features. So what does Kaveri bring to the table that is new? In terms of new architectures we see a transition from Piledriver (Trinity) to Steamroller on the CPU side and from VLIW4 (Trinity) to GCN 1.0 on the GPU side. Yet the most exciting and easily the most talked about new feature is the inclusion of AMD's new HSA technology. HSA is AMD's "Heterogeneous Computing" plan which includes two main components: hUMA (Heterogeneous Unified Memory Architecture) and hQ (Heterogeneous Queuing). hUMA allows for the sharing of system memory equally between GPU cores and CPU cores and hQ allows for both the CPU and GPU cores to independently schedule tasks.

Intel Next Unit of Computing
     Wed, Mar 05 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel brought out their Haswell Next Unit of Computing (NUC), inclusion of features like SATA made it clear that they had bigger things in store for the little system. They were honest that some of this promise will require 3rd party case OEMs to fully realize, but Intel quickly announced that they would be creating their own chassis with 2.5” drive support a bit later. Providing this feature is interesting to two groups of users: those who have, or want to leverage a 2.5” SSD instead of mSATA or anyone who wants local, rotating, storage in the NUC. As it happens, now is the time, and when I sat down with Intel at CES to talk NUC they had one of the new 116.6mm x 112mm x 51.5mm enclosures for me to take back and run through the paces.

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri APU review
     Wed, Mar 05 2014 | 7:08A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,It`s been long overdue, but we review the all new A10-7850K APU from AMD. This APU is based on AMD`s new Kaveri architecture bringing the CPU and the GPU even closer together. Kaveri will aim at several segments in the processor business like notebooks, desktops, embedded and even server solutions. Armed bit a good 2.41 Billion transistors and based on a 28nm fabrication process, let`s have a look at what Kaveri can do."

NVIDIA Coin Mining Performance Increases with Maxwell and GTX 750 Ti
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can see, by cramming more of the lower end but impressive GTX 750 Ti`s into a single machine you can create a similar performing machine for less money than the AMD alternative, which is contrary to all the advice given about coin mining up to this initial release of Maxwell. In addition, performance of the Maxwell-based machine should only improve as the Maxwell kernel for cudaMiner is developed further, whereas OpenCL performance for AMD mining has likely been as optimized as we will ever see it."

Intel Core i7-4960X SLI Gaming Scaling @ ocaholic
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 8:33A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our SLI gaming performance scaling articles we`re going to investigate SLI scaling factors with different CPUs and different clock speeds (since a lot of guys asked for this). In eight recent games and two theoretical benchmarks we want to find out what difference SLI makes, when we run benchmarks with the CPU at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Let`s kick off with an Intel 4960X CPU and two ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards and find out what the differences are going to be like."

ECS KBN-I + AMD E1-2100 Kabini APU

Posted by: STAFF
In a very good deal, the ECS KBN-I/2100 mini-ITX motherboard that features an AMD E1-2100 dual-core Kabini APU can be found for just over $30 USD. How though is the performance of this ultra low-cost motherboard + APU combination when it costs less than a Raspberry Pi? Here are some benchmarks and the Linux impressions."

AMD A10-7850K Dual Graphics Performance
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Kaveri APUs can be paired with two discrete GPUs: the Radeon R7 240 and R7 250. Both are sub-$100 cards that we wouldn't recommend for gaming, but when combined with the A10's on-die GPU we could see performance with bigger implications for value-oriented builders.

Intel to cut a deal with Apple for Fab 42?
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With shipments of desktop and notebooks in the doldrums since 2010, Intel's PC processor business has been in decline. Meanwhile, AMD and others are taking aim at the Intel-dominated server business with ARM-based MPUs. At the same time, Intel has struggled to gain access to the fast-growing market for application processors used in tablets and smartphones.

NVIDIA Tegra K1 - Kepler meets ARM Project Denver Surfaces
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a Kepler GPU in Tegra K1 you get all the benefits of Kepler automatically. A feature like hardware tessellation doesnt surprise PC gamers but for mobile users and developers the feature is new and it is unique to NVIDIA. Tessellation allows you to dynamically generate geometry based on a level of detail variable usually set by screen position. This can be a savings of nearly 50x on triangle generation when compared to OpenGL ES2.0 software tessellation and significant performance improvements will be seen in specific scenarios that take advantage of it. NVIDIA showcased a couple of demos running on the Tegra K1 reference platform including a terrain map and NVIDIAs classic Stone Giant demo both were impressive and running well."

13 Mini-ITX motherboards for Intel 4th generation Core processors
     Tue, Feb 18 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ultimate Haswell Mini-ITX motherboard for overclockers is the ASUS Maximus VI Impact, there is no doubt about that. ASUS managed to develop a Mini-ITX board that is on par with ATX and Micro-ATX boards, a very impressive accomplishment. You do have to dig deep in your wallet for it, but it's the best option for building a compact yet powerful gaming PC that can also be significantly overclocked.

News: Nvidias Tegra K1 SoC has Denver CPU cores Kepler graphics
     Mon, Feb 17 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In early 2011, during a CES press event, Nvidia revealed its Project Denver CPU initiative. On Sunday evening, at another CES press conference, the company provided a glimpse of the first Denver-based processor: the Tegra K1. This next-generation SoC features dual Denver CPU cores clocked at up to 2.5GHz. The cores were designed by Nvidia, and they`re compatible with the 64-bit ARMv8 instruction set. They have a seven-way superscalar pipeline and a hefty 192KB of L1 cache."

News: A quick look at Mantle on AMDs Kaveri APU
     Fri, Feb 14 2014 | 4:59P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three months ago, AMD foretold of the performance improvements that Mantle, its close-to-the-metal graphics programming interface, would bring to Kaveri in Battlefield 4. We`ve now put those predictions to the test by comparing Mantle and Direct3D performance on AMD`s A8-7600 APU."

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.
