Alienware Area-51: Triangular, Tri-SLI GTX 980, Haswell-E
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's Alienware division has a knack for making a splash with PC system design, whether it's with their big, bad unapologetic notebooks, unique X51 small form-factor PCs, or their no-holds-barred Area-51 killer gaming rigs. In fact, for some folks, Alienware designs can be an either "you love it or hate it" affair. Full disclosure: personally, we tend to be cut from the former affectionate group of performance enthusiasts that generally favor Alienware's outside-the-box design efforts -- and oh boy, Alienware's recent redesign of the Area-51 is way outside the box.

Intel Core i7 5960X / 5930K / 5820K Haswell-E review: 8 cores at last
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 8:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve reviewed all three new Intel Haswell-E CPUs: the new flagship Core i7 5960X, but also the more affordable i7 5930K and 5820K. In our review we take a deep dive into the Haswell architecture and compare the performance on the new CPUs in over 20 benchmarks, comparing them with over 60 other CPUs of the last few generations. Additionally the review features DDR3 vs. DDR4 analysis, a comparison of Ivy Bridge-E and Haswell-E on the same clock frequency and overclocking guidelines.

Intel Core i7 4790K Devil’s Canyon Review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 12:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our review of the new Intel Core i7 4790K. It has been some time coming even though we have had an Intel sample for some time now. We wanted to take our time and not only review the processor but create a little overclocking guide for our readers buying one. We found a lot of interesting things - including some processor degradation when we pushed it too hard, for too long. All things considered Is this the processor you want to consider for your next system? What about Intel's new NGPTIM? How does it overclock? How is power consumption? How does it rate beside the 4770K?

HD 7970 GHz Edition
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 1:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On December 22, 2011, AMD launched the first 28nm GPU based on an architecture called GCN on the code name Tahiti silicon. That was the release of the Radeon HD 7970 and it was the beginning of an incredibly long adventure for PC enthusiasts and gamers. We eventually saw the HD 7970 GHz Edition and the R9 280/280X releases, all based on essentially identical silicon, keeping a spot in the market for nearly 3 years. Today AMD is launching the Tonga GPU and Radeon R9 285, a new piece of silicon that shares many traits of Tahiti but adds support for some additional features.

to see AMD move forward
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 12:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what exactly am I getting at? I think for many of us, we expected the AM3+ socket to be a dead end. The way AMD was heading, we really did not expect to see any kind of refresh or new product other than the current stack we are faced with. Well, I was wrong. AMD does have another refresh for the AM3+ socket. Along with the refresh come some much needed cuts up and down the board. AMD also has refocused on where exactly they hope to compete with Intel. It is good to see AMD move forward, but we have to honestly ask ourselves if this particular refresh was worth the time.

Intel Core i7-5960X processor
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 11:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel Core i7-5960X processor continues on the company's path of enthusiast branded parts that are built off of a subset of the workstation and server market. It is no secret that some Xeon branded processors will work in X79 motherboards and the same is true of the upcoming Haswell-EP series (with its X99 platform) launching today. As an enthusiast though, I think we can agree that it doesn't really matter how a processor like this comes about, as long as it continues to occur well into the future.

Intel Octacore i7-5960X Haswell-E Review Part I
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 4:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bye bye Ivy Bridge-E, welcome 22nm successor Haswell-E and it is more than a new processor architecture; DDR4 memory support is finally here. Now in contradiction to other launch articles and due to time constraints the exploring of Intel's latest marvel will be spread out over a few parts. Having just received the sample from Intel a few days back it was nearly impossible to properly explore the new architecture. First of all our official Intel sample was lost for over a week in the Benelux Bermuda Triangle; secondly the main motherboard manufacturer which promised us a board for this article had hardly any sample stock. This Haswell-E launch seemed a bit doomed from the start. So in Part 1 we will just provide you with a quick comparison versus the previous generations we have in the MadShrimps Lab. Enlighten you with some insights on how the brand new DDR4 memory behaves versus the high end Quad Channel DDR3 counterparts. More testing is in progress and results will be covered in upcoming updates

Intel Haswell-E Core i7-5960X CPU & X99 Chipset
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell-E has arrived. With eight cores, 20MB of cache, and quad channels of DDR4 memory, it looks to be the fastest desktop CPU in history--and not by a little bit. We've tested the heck out of it and have a huge suite of comparisons going to back to the Pentium III 800. Just, you know, for context.

FX processor
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 9:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has just shaken up its FX processor series with price cuts and a trio of new models. The additions are based on the same Vishera silicon as before, but the magic of binning has yielded a faster 125W top-of-the-line part as well as two eight-core offerings with 95W thermal envelopes. We compared one of those 95W offerings, the $200 FX-8370E, against Intel's finest.

Motherboard players and Intel to face challenges over CPU product line
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 3:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel will have a total of four CPU product lines for the desktop market in the second quarter of 2015: the new 14nm Broadwell series and Skylake-S series which are both set to launch in the quarter; the existing 22nm Haswell Refresh series and the overclockable Haswell-E series, according to sources from motherboard players. With all the product lines co-existing at the same time, the sources are concerned that the complexity could create shipment and inventory challenges.

Haswell-E processors
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel today launched three new high-end Haswell-E processors for the brand new Intel X99 chipset based platform that was also launched today along with the new LGA 2011-v3 socket. This means that you’ll have to get a new motherboard with an LGA 2011 v3 socket, but your old LGA 2011 CPU cooler will still work as the CPU cooler mounting holes remain the same. This new platform also ushers in support for DDR4 memory! So, in addition to the new processor, chipset and socket, there is a major advancement with regards to the DRAM! Read on to see how it performs!

Intel Broadwell Architecture Preview
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 1:17A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you payed close attention to the announcements coming out of Computex 2014 you’ll recall that Intel announced the Core M processor series. The Intel Core M processors are based on the 14nm Broadwell micro-architecture and will be the most power-efficient processors offered by Intel in this generation. Before the Computex announcement these processors were previously known under the code-named Broadwell-Y. The Intel Core M series have been designed to fill the gap between the Atom series and full fledged Core series that are a bit too powerful and power hungry to serve in portable 2-in-1s, ultra-thin tablets, ultrabooks and other handheld devices. Read on to find out more!

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.
