AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor Review
     Sun, Sep 16 2018 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took a look at AMD’s new flagship mainstream processor the Ryzen 7 2700X, which is an 8-core, 16-thread part. Take a step down and about $100 off the price of the Ryzen 7 2700X and you have a 6-core, 12-thread Ryzen 5 2600X. This second generation Ryzen processor has a base clock of 4.2 GHz and boosts up to 4.2 GHz. All of that performance, and cores for only $225 at our favorite online retailer. On top of that since this is a second generation Ryzen part you have Precision Boost 2 and XFR2. Given its price and expected performance this could be the processor to get for new PC builders. Read on as we see what the Ryzen 5 2600X can do!"

ASRock B450M Pro4 Motherboard Review with AMD Ryzen 5 2400G and AMD Ryzen 7 2700
     Tue, Sep 11 2018 | 3:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ASRock B450M Pro4 we test an inexpensive Micro ATX motherboard for the new AMD Ryzen 2000 CPU series. We have tested and overclocked this AMD AM4 uATX motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 5 2400G processor with integrated GPU and with an AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU. Since the ASRock B450M Pro4 is backwards compatible to the first AMD Ryzen 1000 CPU series, we have also tested it with the AMD Ryzen 7 1800X CPU in comparison to the AMD X370 and B350. We have compared the AMD Ryzen 2000 test results to the previous AMD Ryzen 1000 series as well. Let us see, which features the ASRock B450M Pro4 motherboard has to offer and how high the AMD processors were overclocked. It is not only a motherboard test, but also a test of the AMD Ryzen 5 2400G, AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and AMD Ryzen 7 1800X AMD AM4 CPUs. Furthermore we dared an experiment with the new Arctic Alpine AM4 passive CPU cooler and wish you as always a good time on OCinside.de!

Intel Core i3-8350K Coffee Lake Desktop CPU Review
     Sun, Sep 09 2018 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Core i3-8350K is an oxymoron. This 8th generation Coffee Lake is an unlocked CPU priced low where one will bundle it with a B or an H series, two motherboard chipset with no overclocking option. This 8th generation CPU has four physical cores. It doesn’t have turbo clock speeds and Hyper-Threading. But it has an increased L3 cache to 8MB but with 95-watt TDP, unlike 65-watt on the 8100 and the six-core i5-8400.

Intel Xeon vs. AMD EPYC Performance Cost Of Spectre
     Sat, Sep 08 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the most frequent test requests recently has been to look at the overall performance cost of Meltdown/Spectre mitigations on the latest Linux kernel and now with L1TF/Foreshadow work tossed into the mix. With the Linux 4.19 kernel that just kicked off development this month has been continued churn in the Spectre/Meltdown space, just not for x86_64 but also for POWER/s390/ARM where applicable. For getting an overall look at the performance impact of these mitigation techniques I tested three Intel Xeon systems and two AMD EPYC systems as well as a virtual machine on each side for seeing how the default Linux 4.19 kernel performance -- with relevant mitigations applied -- to that of an unmitigated kernel."

$400 12-core Threadripper: But Is It Worth It?
     Tue, Sep 04 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With AMD's 2nd generation Threadripper out in the wild, the company has decided to slash prices of first gen parts. The Threadripper 1920X is now down to just $400 which on paper for a 12-core/24-thread high-end processor is insane.

Intel i7-8086K @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Sep 01 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been an exciting few years in the PC market, especially with big gains in the CPU market. But it gets a lot crazier when you look back farther. Intel recently did this when they were celebrating the 40th birthday of their 8086 microprocessor. While most of you may not know the 8086 specifically, you would recognize some of the processors that it paved the way for. Most notably the ones that came after it the 286 and the 386. I personally grew up playing with those and played my first real PC games like the original Warcraft on a 486 after we spent a LOT of money to upgrade to I think it was 12MB of ram. The 8086 brought the X86 platform so 40 years was a big milestone. To celebrate Intel brought out the 8086K, named after the original. It is also their first CPU to deliver 5.0 GHz single core turbo clock speeds. Well, today I’m going to take a look at the 8086K and see where it fits in the market.

a new direction from ARM
     Mon, Aug 27 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are seeing a new direction from ARM that has never been officially explored. We have been given a roadmap of the next two generations of products from the company that are intended to compete in not only the cellphone market, but also in the laptop market. ARM has thrown down the gauntlet and their sights are set on Intel and AMD. Not only is ARM showing us the codenames for these products, but also the relative performance.

Complementing the extensive Linux benchmarks done earlier today of the AMD Threadripper 2990WX in our review (as well as on the Threadripper 2950X), in this article are our first Windows 10 vs. Linux benchmarks of this 32-core / 64-thread $1799 USD processor. Tests were done from Microsoft Windows 10 against Clear Linux, Ubuntu 18.04, the Arch-based Antergos 18.7-Rolling, and openSUSE Tumbleweed."

AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 2950X And 2990WX Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, AMD is officially unveiling its 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper processors and it hopes to scale things up even further than it did last year. There’s only so much wiggle-room left in the enthusiast segment, so with this launch AMD has also set its sights on content creation and workstation professionals, with processors that feature 24 and 32 Zen+ cores. The Threadripper WX series is somewhat of a departure from the original Threadrippers, but their massive compute capabilities and aggressive price points (relatively speaking) may prove to be highly attractive to creators that can never have enough horsepower. The Threadripper X-series gets a significant boost from the Zen+ architecture as well, however. The goal with this round of Threadrippers is to offer a better experience than the originals all-around, while also offering more performance, and maintaining full platform compatibility...
