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.

     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 2:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. Currently covering *850 desktop CPUs*, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare *up to 19 different specifications* for each and every CPU. Here`s the latest update in Revision 12.4 : *- Added the AMD A10-5800K dual-core processor. - Added the AMD A10-5700 dual-core processor. - Added the AMD A8-5600K dual-core processor. - Added the AMD A8-5500 dual-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 651K quad-core processor. - Updated the Transistor Count and Die Size specifications for all AMD FX processors.*"

GCN offerings of AMD
     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's Kepler, although much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the GCN offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX GK104 die of the GTX 670 and curtail its memory bandwidth? Well, we get a still surprisingly strong GTX 660Ti that can take on the big boys when overclocked.

The new ARMv8 architecture is classically British; a clean and elegant 64-bit instruction set, with compatibility for 32-bit software. The 64-bit mode eliminates many complicated and awkward features and will foster a larger and more diverse ARM ecosystem with new licensees and applications. Our new article examines the changes in ARMv8 in detail:

Test: Is your Intel Core 2 Duo still up to date? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 2:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is the question, Intel`s Core2Duo was very popular back in the days and still is. Furthermore according to Steam`s survey half of steam gamers are still using a machine powered by a dual core processor. Fair enough, let`s see how the Core2Duo E8400 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

AMD A4-3400 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 4:30A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many people who buy low end desktops and when they do, they hope that they get a rich and hassle free user experience. As CPUs now have arguably reached a competent level in the past few years, the final hurdle was to make the dreaded motherboard IGP obsolete. This is where the A4 Series APUs come in. Low priced dual core CPU clocked at 2.7Ghz paired with a DX11, 160 core Radeon HD 6140D graphics adaptor that promises to deliver performance for the essential and day to day tasks expected of a contemporary desktop PC."

[Tech ARP] [ Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPU to PCI Post Write
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:37A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *CPU to PCI Post Write* setting."

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.
