Hackintosh Performance Hardware Options @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 3:56A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently I described my latest Hackintosh build, a mini-ITX system based on an Intel Core i3-3220 CPU, an ASUS P8H77-i motherboard, and an ASUS GTX660 video card. I had to work with what our vendors sent us for the project, but that doesn`t mean that you do. In this follow-up article I`ll explore the performance and price of some different CPU and video hardware options."

AMD A4-5000 - Kabini the mainstream APU
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmarks aside, from our perspective the AMD A4-5000 was fast enough for general usage. With an SSD in tow it would open up Word 2013 or any of the other Office applications in seconds for example. For those wanting to surf the Internet, e-mail, conduct some word processing or even a little graphic design, the A4-5000 will provide enough power and the run time to avoid you looking for another power socket the moment you disconnect it from one.

A Futurelooks News Flash - Intels 4th Generation Haswell Core i7-4770K LGA1150 Processor Reviewed
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 9:25A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple weeks ago, Intel released their 4th Generation Haswell processor series. It continues to offer every feature but is architecturally different from Ivy Bridge. All the marketing data and other laboratory testing point to improved performance all around including new integrated Intel Iris HD graphics processing designed for supporting 4K displays. But does Haswell offer a new processor experience? Is Iris the boost needed to to move to 4K displays? And finally, is Haswell thermal friendly enough to overclock? These questions are what Ive been taking the time to answer. "

werPC Gamer Xtreme 5200 Haswell System Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:42P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that Intel's 4th-generation Core processors are flowing in the market, all your favorite boutique builders are churning out new systems based around those Haswell chips. The new Intel processors require a new socket (LGA 1150), and the associated motherboards have the new Z87 chipset. If you're as excited as we are to see how Haswell fares, stick around--there's a lot of good stuff coming down the pike. One of our first Haswell-based system is the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme 5200, which comes in a surprisingly subdued mid-tower chassis that belies the powerful components inside. It's hard to say what CyberPowerPC's going for aesthetically here, but it's easy to see that this machine is fully loaded.

Intel Core i7-4770K Review: Haswell Has Landed
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've been hanging around these parts and are like most self-respecting geeks, you've likely been feeling the build-up of Haswell for quite some time. Intel has disclosed lots of information on their latest processor technologies, from its 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors, to its beefed-up integrated graphics core. Sure, there's marketing hype and press releases but at some point you've got to have execution -- and today is all about execution for Intel. Intel is officially launching Haswell today, their 4th Generation Core processor technology for the desktop market, with a follow-on release of dual core and mobile Haswell offerings coming up quickly on June 3rd. Haswell marks a number of firsts for Intel, including leading-edge technologies like on-chip voltage regulators, eDRAM, and their first graphics engine that fully supports the DX11.1 specification and OpenGL 4.0. With these new features alone, Haswell is primed to offer significant performance and feature enhancements, the likes of which should appeal first and foremost to mainstream consumers; but there's also plenty brought to the table for the performance enthusiast here as well.

What Enabling C6/C7 Low-Power States Do On Haswell @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 4:53P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On our Windows 8 test platform we were able to quickly see the benefits of running with the C6 and C7 power states enabled. We found that with C6/C7 disabled that the system would idle between 23.7 and 24.1 Watts, but with them enabled we were seeing between 20.5 to 21.2 Watts. Both numbers are impressive as you have to keep in mind that the whole system is being measures here with a Kill-A-Watt power meter at the wall outlet..."

Intel Core i7 4770K / Core i5 4670K / Core i5 4430 review
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's clear that Haswell has been designed with mobile devices in mind. For products like (convertible) Ultrabooks, Haswell has useful new improvements, such as the lower (idle) energy consumption. Haswell is also the generation which finally allows Intel to compete with AMD when it comes to integrated graphics.

Intel's Haswell: Optimized For Mobility
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If Haswell's debut on the desktop has left you feeling a bit flat, the company's mobile efforts may be the pick-me-up you've been hoping for. If you step back and think about the entire CPU market, the last two years have been marked by tremendous shifts in consumer buying habits, as tablet sales skyrocketed and desktop/laptop sales have slumped. Intel recognized years ago that Atom, no matter how polished, would never be able to address the entire portable market -- the usage scenarios between a laptop and a smartphone are just too wide. The company therefore decided to take a two-pronged approach to this brave new frontier of computing, with a new Atom architecture anchoring the ultra-low power segments while more traditional x86 cores were prepped for form factors no one at Intel dreamed of ten years ago. Some of the reasons Haswell is less exciting on the desktop, in other words, is because Intel prioritized a mobile architecture that would draw as little power as possible, while still offering excellent performance..

AMD has taken its Trinity quad-core chips and tuned them so hard, a new code name sprouted forth: Richland. We`ve taken a pair of Richland-based processors on a tour of our exhaustive test suite. Oh, and we`ve tested the FX-4350 and FX-6350 chips from AMD, too. Come see what we found."

AMD A10-6800K and A4-4000 Richland APU Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Little over 6 months since launching Trinity on the desktop, AMD is updating their product lineup with a minor refresh. Codenamed Richland, these new APUs offer no substantial changes to either the CPU or GPU. Other than some clock speed improvements and better power management, everything is mostly the same. Leading the pack is the A10-6800K, which is stepping in to replace the A10-5800K. Both processors are identical with a few minor exceptions. The A10-6800K is clocked slightly higher and has an updated Radeon HD 8670D GPU. We're also taking a look at the bargain basement A4-4000 at the other end of the spectrum, which we suspect is going to be a slightly slower version of last year’s A4-5300.

News: Intel removes modest free overclocking from standard Haswell CPUs
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 11:49A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, standard Core i5 and i7 processors offer enough multiplier headroom for 400MHz overclocks. K-series chips are only required to push higher. Things are different for Haswell, which removes the multiplier allowance for standard CPUs, making multiplier-based overclocking exclusive to K-series processors."

Streacom FC8 Evo Fanless Chassis Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FC8 Evo case from Streacom has a very clean, professional look and is ideal for people which want absolute silence when working at their PC. The installation instructions are explained with both photos and text and if we are patient, there should be no issues. Also, there are plenty of additional accessories that can be bought from them like the slot-loading optical drive, USB 3.0 cable or IR sensor + remote.
