Are Quad-core CPUs Finally Dead in 2019?
     Tue, Mar 05 2019 | 12:49P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're discussing quad-core processors, namely how relevant they are in 2019. The last time we covered this specific topic was back in 2017, so this article means to explore if these budget quad-cores are worth buying for gamers, or are they dead on arrival.

Bottom line, quad-cores are perfectly fine as entry-level parts and thankfully today that’s all they’re being sold as. At the mid-range and beyond you could argue they are already 'dead' and ideally you’ll want a 6-core/12-thread CPU as a minimum, possibly for the next few years."

Intel Bean Canyon NUC Review: 8th Gen CPU With Iris Plus
     Tue, Mar 05 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has embraced small form factor systems for many years. Whether it be high-end mini-PCs like the Hades Canyon NUC, complete with discrete graphics for gamers, or ultra-tiny devices like the Compute Card, Intel has consistently pushed small form factor markets forward, for just about as long as ‘performance per watt’ has been a thing. The Hades Canyon NUC and Compute Card target some rather niche markets, however. For more mainstream, everyday computing applications, Intel’s standard 4"x4” NUC (Next Unit of Computing) systems are much more apropos, and the Intel NUC8i7BEH we’ll be showing you here may just be the best all-around unit yet...

Dell XPS 13 9380 + Intel Core i7 8565U Ubuntu Linux Performance
     Fri, Feb 22 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At the end of January, Dell announced the Dell XPS 13 9380 Developer Edition laptop as an upgraded version of the XPS 9370 with now having Intel Whiskey Lake CPUs and other minor improvements. Over the past two weeks I've been testing out the Dell XPS 9380 with Intel Core i7 8565U processor with 256GB of NVMe SSD storage and 16GB of RAM. Here are benchmarks of the Dell XPS 9380 compared to several other laptops running Ubuntu Linux as well as looking at the system thermal and power consumption among other metrics."

Testing Intel Whiskey Lake CPUs: Core i7-8565U Review
     Mon, Feb 11 2019 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel unveiled a new series of U-series laptop processors last year designed for ultraportables. These CPUs are codenamed Whiskey Lake, and they're still 8th-gen parts that are not radically different from Kaby Lake Refresh. The focus of this review will be the Core i7-8565U, which is essentially the new flagship 15W CPU in Intel's line-up.

Intel Xeon W-3175X Review
     Wed, Jan 30 2019 | 8:55P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In October of last year, when Intel officially unveiled its 9th Generation Core series processors, the company also took the opportunity to announce a semi-new breed of workstation processor, namely the Xeon W-3175X. Technically speaking, the architecture at the heart of the Xeon W-3175X isn’t new – the monstrous 28-core / 56-thread processor is based on Skylake-SP, just like the first wave of Xeon Scalable processors that were released in 2017. What Intel has done with the Xeon W-3175X, however, is selectivity bin the die and tweak and tune the power and turbo boost profiles to increase frequencies, and ultimately performance, versus earlier Skylake-SP parts. The Xeon W-3175X is also unlocked to allow for easier overclocking, like more mainstream "K" skus...

Intel Core i9-9980XE Extreme Edition Review – It Hertz!
     Wed, Jan 16 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the face of it the i9-9980XE looked very similar to the preceding i9-7980XE with only modest changes to the clock speed and the welcome addition of a soldered heat spreader. Headline features that have been carried over from i9-7980XE to i9-9980XE are 18 cores/36 threads, 18MB total L2 cache (1MB per core), 24.75MB total L3 cache, 14nm fabrication process and an Intel list price of US$1,999. It was immediately clear the i9-9980XE did not truly deserve to be called 9th Generation as any changes looked more like detail revisions than significant updates. Nonetheless we could hardly wait to strap this new monster CPU to our test bench and see how well it performed.

Today another reader review is published on OCinside.de. This time Berserkus tests a bundling of an MSI A320M Pro-VH Plus motherboard with an AMD Athlon 200GE CPU in our forum. In the review we will see if the low budget motherboard offers enough features, if with the inexpensive AMD Athlon 200GE CPU maybe even some gaming is possible and how to overclock the AMD Athlon 200GE.

Coreprio Can Help AMD Threadripper Windows Performance
     Fri, Jan 11 2019 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Rolled out recently was Bitsum's Coreprio third-party freeware utility designed to off better Threadripper 2970WX/2990WX performance by its own implementation of AMD Dynamic Local Mode compared to the default Windows scheduler behavior. Here are some benchmarks of Windows 10 against Linux while trying out CorePrio's NUMA Dissociater mode to see how much it helps the performance compared to Ubuntu Linux. Additionally, tests are included of Windows Server 2019 to see if that server edition of Windows is able to offer better performance on this AMD HEDT NUMA platform."

Posted by: STAFF
The first is AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper 2920X, a 12-core, 24-thread model that’s ostensibly similar to the 1st Gen. 1920X. Modifications to AMD’s Precision Boost technology means that its headline (non-XFR) Turbo mode now reaches 4.3GHz from 4.0GHz and will maintain a higher clock speed across all cores for longer.
