AMD A10-7800 APU Processor Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 2:51A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sporting a configurable TDP and all of the Kaveri features (GCN graphics cores, Steamroller CPU cores, HSA, etc.), the A10-7800 which Benchmark Reviews will be looking at today sits right in between the A10-7850K and A10-7700K. What type of performance was AMD able to extract from this 65W APU? Read on to find out."

Devil's Canyon Intel Core i7-4790K
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The only good news for the Core i7-4790K is that it costs the same amount as the 4770K at $339 and it’s clearly faster. This then is also good news for consumers looking at purchasing a Core i7 processor as they now get a bit more bang for their buck. Those already rocking a 4770K processor can simply change their clock multiplier to x40 and receive 4790K performance.

AMD A10-7800 and A6-7400K Review: AMD Rounds Out the Kaveri Line
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 2:51A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is still in the fight. Even though AMD and Intel hardly view each other as their primary target, they still exist in the same space together fighting for marketshare. AMD brings a lot of features to the table while Intel brings excellent power consumption and IPC. Users need to have a very good idea where they want to spend their hard earned dollars, as each competitor has advantages over the other. AMD does have an advantage in overall cost, typically because the motherboards for the FM2+ socket infrastructure are significantly cheaper than the competing Intel boards based on features."

AMD A10-7800 Kaveri APU Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD promised many new APUs when unveiling its Kaveri architecture in January but until now was only able to deliver two, the $160 A10-7700K and $170 A10-7850K. It's a little confusing to see the company pitching an updated version of a product range that was never properly launched but on the bright side, AMD's Kaveri update seems a little more substantial than Intel's recent Haswell refresh. Today we'll be looking at the $155 A10-7800, which comes in 45W or 65W TDP modes and has a full-blown R7 GPU featuring 8 CUs with 512 SPUs and 32 TAUs like the unlocked A10-7850K.

Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition Review & Overclocking Build Guide
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For more than a decade tech-savvy users on a budget would commonly buy a sub-$100 CPU and achieve performance comparable to $200-$300 chips by overclocking. These days Intel locks down its lower end parts, but to mark the 20th anniversary of its Pentium brand, they've released a fully unlocked dual-core Pentium G3258 for $72 -- just what the overclocking community has been waiting for. We'll put it through its paces in a couple of builds of our own.

AMD's Seattle server processor
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 4:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For some time now, the features of AMD's Seattle server processor have been painted in broad brush strokes. This morning, at the Hot Chips symposium, AMD is filling in most of the missing details. We were treated to an advance briefing last week, where AMD provided previously confidential information about Seattle's cache network, memory controller, I/O features, and coprocessors.

world-leading 14-nm fab process
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thanks to a world-leading 14-nm fab process, Intel has shrunk its best CPU technology into half the power envelope and half the physical footprint of last year's Haswell processors. We have a first look at Broadwell, the x86 chip that aims to revolutionize the tablet market.

Intel Core M Processor: Broadwell Architecture and 14nm Process Reveal
     Mon, Aug 11 2014 | 12:05P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The information provided by Intel about Broadwell-Y today shows me the company is clearly innovating and iterating on its plans set in place years ago with the focus on power efficiency. Broadwell and the 14nm process technology will likely be another substantial leap between Intel and AMD in the x86 tablet space and should make an impact on other tablet markets (like Android) as long as pricing can remain competitive. That 14nm process gives Intel an advantage that no one else in the industry can claim and unless Intel begins fabricating processors for the competition (not completely out of the question), that will remain a house advantage."

Intel Core i7-3960X vs Core i7-3930K 3-way SLI Gaming-Performance @ ocaholic
     Sun, Aug 10 2014 | 3:53P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamers are always curious to know what benefit they get from an expensive CPU in terms of frames per second. In this series of articles we will have a look at different CPUs, running at different clock speeds and with each article we will compare two CPUs. These CPUs will be place in a test system that`s been equipped with no less than three high-end graphics cards in order to open the GPU bottleneck."

Intel Pentium G3258 On Linux

Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today on Phoronix is the Pentium G3258, the new processor Intel put out in celebration of their Pentium brand turning 20 years old. This new Pentium G3258 processor costs under $100 USD and comes unlocked for offering quite a bit overclocking potential while this Pentium CPU can be used by current Intel 8 and 9 Series Chipsets. Here`s our first benchmarks of the Intel Pentium G3258 using Ubuntu Linux."

Intel Core i7 4790K Haswell gets a refresh @Bjorn3D
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 8:29A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The New Devils Canyon CPU is a very nice upgrade to the Intel stable. Bringing a default speed of 4.0GHz to the table and up to 4.4GHz means the need to overclock for a gamer is even further negated than we have seen before. The processor feels a lot more stable and gamer friendly with the much lower temps thanks to the addition of the new TIM in place which once again we feel was a major good move by Intel to correct a very big issue. This allows even air-cooled gamers to now have an even more silent system while still offering blazingly fast performance. The other side of the coin on this point is that on extreme cooled efforts these chips seem to be less responsive and a bit less capable but we will wait for some BIOS revisions and more OC related boards to fully pass judgement on this specific issue.

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.
