Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, we examined whether a new GPU like the GeForce GTX 660 could breathe new life into an older quad-core gaming system built in mid 2008. The answer, we concluded, was definitely yes -- but many of you of you asked us to reconsider the question, this time using a dual-core Core 2 Duo. We've done so. And just for fun, we've added overclocked CPU results into the mix as well.

Intel set to announce Haswell processors at Computex 2013
     Mon, Jan 21 2013 | 12:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel is set to host a conference prior to Computex 2013 in June announcing its upcoming Haswell series processors jointly with downstream partners, according to sources from PC players.

The sources noted that the new CPUs will appear on June 2 and related PC products will be showcased at Computex, hosted from June 4-8.

Intel also internally forecasts the new CPU platform to account for 14-16% of its total CPU shipments in the third quarter, the sources noted.

Since consumer demand for Windows 8 is expected to start rising after the operating system has been launched for eight months, with the launch of the new CPU platform, the sources expect the PC market to start recovering in the third quarter."
