Intel Atom Bay Trail NUC Kit On Linux
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 12:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the early Atom Bay Trail hardware being disastrous for Linux, when Intel recently announced their Bay Trail based NUC Kit we were anxious and decided to give this unit a go. The Intel NUC Kit DN2820FYK packs an Intel Celeron N2820 Bay Trail CPU and motherboard supporting up to 8GB of DDR3L system memory and 2.5-inch HDD/SSD in a 116 x 112 x 51 mm form-factor. In this article is a rundown of the Phoronix experience so far for this Atom NUC Kit and how well it`s running with Ubuntu Linux."

Cyberpower PC ‘Ultra Fusion’ AMD Gaming System Review
     Fri, Feb 07 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I get a full system in for review, typically I will find an Intel CPU lying at the heart of the system and whilst this is partly due to their high level of popularity,; along with their multitasking abilities – for some the overall cost factor can be a bit of an issue. Naturally this means that there is only one other route to go down and this is with AMD and their line of CPUs. From our own testing of AMD processors we know that they offer a slightly cheaper alternative to some of Intel’s top line chips – such as the i7-4770k, although we do find that in some tasks, they may struggle to keep up the blue teams performance. For gamers though, all-round performance is not the main priority – it’s having a system that can offer up a great level of gaming performance and for an affordable price. Coming forward to the last few months, AMD recently announced the release of their latest CPU into the Piledriver group of FX chips – namely the FX-9590. Now like all new processor releases, it has come into the market with a mixed response from the enthusiast community, however it looks like it has proved its way and has settled itself down in the market as the new contender to Intel’s Ivy Bridge-E i7-4960X, offering a huge difference in price as we are used to seeing with AMD chips. We know as well that anyone looking for a high-end gaming system but on a tight budget is going to benefit from an AMD chip, although the trade-off is with performance in other workload areas as mentioned above.

AMD A10-7850K vs. Intel/AMD CPU/APU Comparison
     Tue, Feb 04 2014 | 4:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two days ago AMD launched their Kaveri APUs to mixed reactions. On launch-day we provided a Linux overview of the AMD A10-7850K APU and followed that with an Ubuntu Linux vs. Windows 8.1 performance comparison for this top-end Kaveri APU. Yesterday was then the AMD Kaveri APU compared to discrete AMD/NVIDIA GPUs and now today we`ve finally had the time to finish the tests most people have been looking forward to: the A10-7850K comparison against various other AMD and Intel CPU/APUs. These Linux tests cover a range of both processor and graphics testing from Ubuntu 14.04 across a wide selection of Intel and AMD hardware."

Intel Releases A Boatload Of Haswell Documentation
     Sun, Feb 02 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As an extra holiday present for Linux and open-source fans, Intel has quietly released a large batch of new programming documentation that covers their latest-generation Haswell graphics cores. The new programmer`s reference manuals cover the 2013 Haswell HD Graphics, Iris Graphics, and Iris Pro Graphics. This massive batch of documentation is spread across twelve volumes and does document their hardware registers."

News: A subjective look at the A8-7600s gaming performance
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 12:28P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As long as you`re willing to dial back the in-game details, AMD`s Kaveri-based A8-7600 APU is fast enough to play the latest DirectX 11 titles. But do older and more casual games require fewer compromises? We`ve taken a subjective look at the chip`s performance in a wide variety of less demanding titles to get a sense of how it fares."

AMD Richland A10-6790K Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Feb 01 2014 | 11:10A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So to be a little more objective, we place the A10-6790K APU against the Intel Haswell i5-4430 CPU that comes with the HD 4600 iGPU. Costing up to 46 more than the APU we can expect a lot of CPU horses, but how well does it do when considering the complete system?"

Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the biggest change though and the main selling point of the Ivy-Bridge E 4960X is the reduction in fabrication process from 32nm to 22nm which should equate to the new CPU being much more power efficient. For the overclockers this means less heat which hopefully will equate to higher overclocking. Our bomb proof Intel i7-3960X was capable of hitting 4.8GHz with regularity so we hope to reach this level with the i7-4960X as a minimum. Less voltage requirements and less heat production would obviously be welcome too."

AMD A8-7600 Kaveri APU and R7 250 Dual Graphics Testing - Pacing is Fixed!
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 11:10A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ability to frame pace multi-GPU graphics has finally arrived to Dual Graphics with the Catalyst 13.35 beta and the results are pretty good. Of the five games we tested, four of them saw significant improvements in playability and experience with the new driver that did not exist before. The only game that didn`t see improvement was Skyrim, a game that is still using a DX9 rendering engine. AMD has clearly told us that only DX10/11 games are enabled for Frame Pacing right now, and in all honestly I don`t think we`ll see DX9 implemented at all. The game development world has moved on, and unfortunately I don`t think AMD sees the value of spending time on that right now."

AMD Kaveris Open Radeon Performance Now Multiple Times Faster
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 10:07A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month I shared some basic OpenGL benchmarks between AMD`s Kaveri APU on the Catalyst driver and the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver. Now that more time has passed I`m back with another round of Linux graphics driver testing on the AMD A10-7850K, this time looking at the impact when forcing Dynamic Power Management and toggling color tiling for maximum performance."

DDR3-2400MHz On AMDs A10 Kaveri With Kingstons HyperX Beast
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 6:26A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier in the week I published benchmarks showing AMD Kaveri`s DDR3-800MHz through DDR3-2133MHz system memory performance. Those results showed this latest-generation AMD APU craving -- and being able to take advantage of -- high memory frequencies. Many were curious how DDR3-2400MHz would fair with Kaveri so here`s some benchmarks as we test out Kingston`s HyperX Beast 8GB DDR3-2400MHz memory kit."

AMD may reach 30% share in professional GPU market in 2014
     Sun, Jan 26 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD may reach a 30% share in the professional graphics card market at the end of 2014, up from around 20% currently, because Apple has turned to adopt AMD's FirePro graphics cards for it new Mac Pro products, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

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.
