Fourth generation Intel Core preview: all about Haswell
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell is a new architecture based on an existing manufacturing process. That means it will have the 22nm Tri-Gate ā€˜3Dā€™ transistors introduced with Ivy Bridge. The main enhancements of the CPU architecture come in the shape of new instructions (AVX 2) and support for transactional memory. The latter should make multi-threaded software run faster. The integrated GPU in the consumer models should also be a lot faster, and it will support DirectX 11.1. Intel is taking the integration of the chipset in the processor a step further, even releasing a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) version of the processor.

IDF Day 1: Intel's Rise of Natural, Intuitive Computing
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Dadi Perlmutter took to the stage in the opening keynote of Intel Developer's Forum 2012 to greet an enthusiastic crowd and evangelize the company's vision of what they call the rise of "natural, intuitive computing." On stage with Dadi were a number of Intel-powered devices including a myriad of Windows 8 tablets and new Ultrabooks from various manufacturers. To be honest, Intel didn't disclose a lot of juicy detail on next generation hardware for the first 20 minutes or so of Dadi's presentation but they focused on a few very innovative new usage models, user interfaces, capabilities and features that are now possible as a result of Intel's relentless, continuous advancements in technology and computing architectures

Test: Intel i7 920 @ 2.66 & 4 GHz - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 1:05P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Okay, time to take a break with AMD`s processors for now and let`s go back to Intel with the Core i7 920. Yes the i7 920, the one that a lot of us bought or wanted to buy, the one that has almost revolutionized the market, in bief: the one! Back to the article we are going to test his gaming performance coupled with an AMD HD 7970 under recent 3D games with maximum graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. And there is a bonus, lots of people asked us to test it at both stock and 4 GHz speed, so we did!"

Intel Core i5 3470
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 9:25A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past month I have been testing out the Intel Core i5 3470 under Linux. Like Intel`s other processors of recent years (well, ignoring the initial Sandy Bridge struggles), and just like the more expensive Ivy Bridge CPUs of this year, this mid-range quad-core processor is working very smoothly out of the box on modern Linux distributions."

Phenom II x4 970 & Phenom II x6 1090T BE - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Sep 05 2012 | 11:44A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week, as a lot of readers wanted us to do, we tested the gaming performance of the Phenom II x4 and Phenom II x6 coupled with an AMD Radeon HD 7970. Which brings our comparison tables to a new level having 2 Phenoms, 2 Bulldozers, 2 Core 2 and an Ivy Bridge CPU in there. We hope this starts to give you an overview of processors` gaming performance under recent 3D games with a high end graphics card and maximum graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Unfortunately no overclocking this time nor most popular Phenoms - we did with what we had - aka a Phenom II x4 970 and a Phenom II x6 1090T BE. Anyway let`s see what the results are!"

Can AMD Ever Compete Against Intel Again?
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 2:35P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
Recently, there were a lot of rumors that AMD reorganized its roadmap and that some late 2012 and regular 2013 parts were cancelled. Before going any forward, we can now say that some of those rumors are true.

"The history of AMD's Bulldozer architecture is a painful one. The old management lead by Hector Jesus Ruiz and Dirk Meyer deliberately delayed the arrival of K10 "Barcelona" and got usurped by Intel's Core architecture. The mad rush to the original Bulldozer caused a lot of sacrifices in design and ultimately, lead AMD engineering team to cancel the architecture in 2008. Instead of creating a master-core, AMD's engineers envisioned a multi-step approach to increase the performance of its architecture. Bulldozer was the first generation part, introducing a flexible Floating Point Unit, support for AVX, XOP, FMA4 and so on. Piledriver was envisioned as the performance improvement, followed with Steamroller which would bring "greater parallelism" - in fact, it would improve the shortcomings of the original Bulldozer, and then we have Excavator, 4th generation design which should increase performance and fight off Haswell-EP/EX in 2014."

Posted by: STAFF
Andy Tseng, General manager of AMD Taiwan, recently resigned from his post. So far, there is still no information about Tseng's successor, according to sources from the supply chain. As AMD is adopting new strategy to tighten its personnel management, rumors that high-level executives at AMD's China and Taiwan offices may soon leave their posts, had been circulating in the IT market. With vice president of AMD Greater China Le Jiaming's resignation at the end of July and Tseng's stepping-down, the rumors are gradually being confirmed.

AMD's Next Gen Steamroller CPU Could Deliver Bulldozer
     Wed, Aug 29 2012 | 4:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today at the Hot Chips Symposium, AMD's CTO Mark Papermaster is taking the wraps off the company's upcoming CPU core, codenamed Steamroller. Steamroller is the third iteration of AMD's Bulldozer architecture and an extremely important part for AMD. Steamroller is the first refresh of Bulldozer's underlying architecture and may finally deliver the sort of performance and efficiency AMD was aiming for when it built Bulldozer in the first place.
