AMD Vishera and Beyond: New Design Philosophy Dictates a Faster Pace
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 11:50A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is staying busy and nimble, but they are at the tender mercies of the foundries at this time. Vishera does look to be a good upgrade from the original Bulldozer, and it will improve its standing among manufacturers and consumers alike. While it will not match Intels Ivy Bridge in pure performance, it does look to close the gap and be a true successor to the popular Phenom II line from AMD. This may not drive enthusiasts back into AMDs corner, but it will certainly stop a lot of the negative press and the bleeding of die-hard AMD fans into the Intel camp. Vishera does look to be the last desktop based AM3+ part. Past Q3 of 2013, I believe that AMD will focus primarily on the APU for all desktop applications, and start pushing those products into the server market."

AMD FX-8120 CPU Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 8-core FX-8120 CPU from AMD gets near the 2500K performances in heavy multithreaded apps and thanks to its unlocked features, we can overclock it near 50% (depending on the quality of the batch). Thanks to the latest price reductions and promotions, it gets into the area of mainstream CPUs, making it attractive for people that do not want to spend excessively on their new upgrade."

Intel Ivy Bridge On Linux Two-Month Redux
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been 66 days since Intel formally introduced their Ivy Bridge processors as the 2012 successor to Sandy Bridge. My views on Intel Ivy Bridge (specifically the Core i7 3770K model) back on launch-day were very positive in terms of the Linux compatibility, CPU performance, and the HD 4000 graphics capabilities. Since then I`ve conducted dozens of additional tests looking at the Core i7 Ivy Bridge on Linux in different areas from comparative benchmarks to Microsoft Windows, trying to run BSD operating systems on the latest hardware, looking at the virtualization performance, compiler tuning, etc. Here is a recap of this additional Ivy Bridge testing that has happened over the past two months of near constant benchmarking."

Live Video Recap: AMD Llano Blindfolded PC Build
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In all, it took me 1 hour and 18 minutes to get to a Windows screen using a pre-installed OS on a Western Digital 1TB hard drive. That was MUCH longer than I had originally thought it would take, so I have been humbled by those DIY PC users that build their own on without sight a regular basis!"

AMD FX-4170 vs. Intel Core i7-3770K Gaming Performance HD 7970
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:05P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let's have a good old school AMD vs Intel test featuring the performance in games. What we do is we take an AMD FX-4170 and test it against a Core i7-3770K with the most recent games at FullHD and max details as well as max Anti Aliasing. So let's see if there are differences and if there are some let's see how big they are.

Review: AMD Bulldozer FX-4170 @ ocaholic
     Tue, Jun 26 2012 | 9:10A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been quite while since AMD released it`s bulldozer processors. When they were launched we reviewed the FX-8150 and the FX-8120 octacore CPUs. These two processors haven`t been able to convince because of their poor performance per MHz. Now we`re going to check wether the FX-4170 with 4.2 GHz is a fierce competitor for Intel or not."

AMD OpenCL APP SDK Beats Intel s Own SDK On Ivy Bridge
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here are some OpenCL benchmarks from the Intel Ivy Bridge CPU. Being compared though is AMD`s APP SDK, which does support running OpenCL on x86 CPUs, to Intel`s CPU-based OpenCL SDK for Linux. To some surprise, AMD`s Accelerated Parallel Processing SDK when using the Ivy Bridge CPU is actually faster than the Intel OpenCL SDK on the same hardware."

AMD Licenses ARM Technology: AMD Leans on ARM for Security
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year after that particular AFDS, there was much speculation that AMD and ARM would get a whole lot closer. Today we have confirmed that in two ways. The first is that AMD and ARM are founding members of the HSA Foundation. This endeavor is a rather ambitious project that looks to make it much easier for programmers to access the full computer power of a CPU/GPU combo, or as AMD likes to call them, the APU. The second confirmation is one that has been theorized for quite some time, but few people have actually hit upon the actual implementation. This second confirmation is that AMD is licensing ARM cores and actually integrating them into their x86 based APUs."

AMD Licenses ARM Technology - ARM TrustZone technology Coming To APUs @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year there has been much speculation that AMD and ARM would enter some sort of an IP licensing deal. Many expected to hear some big announcement like AMD licensing ARM?s CPU cores or ARM licensing AMD`s Radeon IP, but that didn`t exactly happen. That changed today when AMD announced it will integrate the ARM TrustZone technology into future Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) via a system-on-a-chip (SoC) design methodology."

Intel Core i7-3720QM: Mobile Ivy Bridge Review
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of breaking new ground in performance, Ivy Bridge improves efficiency, marking the arrival of Intel's 22nm design process which uses new 3D transistors. This allows the flagship quad-core 3.5GHz Core i7-3770K to consume less power than the more modest Sandy Bridge i5-2500K. Granted, the 19-watt power savings we recorded in our tests probably won't excite desktop users, but it does present a tangible benefit for battery-bound mobile machines. Ivy Bridge's improved fuel efficiency should grant laptops a little more mileage away from wall chargers.

Intel Core i5-3427U: Ivy Bridge For Ultrabooks Review
     Thu, Jun 21 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2011, Intel Capital, Intel's investment arm in support of their strategic objectives, ponied-up a cool $300 million to help give birth to a new class of notebooks they defined as "Ultrabooks." Though there aren't a complete set if design specifications, Intel requires certain characteristics of performance, mechanical design, battery life and processor component selection, in order to market a notebook as an Ultrabook. From resume from hibernation response times to chassis thickness, Intel wanted to build upon Apple's success with the MacBook Air, so that all of their OEM and ODM partners could get in on the thin, sleek and sexy trend that's becoming all the rage with consumers. Today Intel is lifting the embargo veil off of a number of Core i5 dual-core Ivy Bridge processors for both the desktop and mobile segments. In terms of mobile products, Ultrabooks remain the clear focus for Intel and as such we've been setup with a demonstration vehicle for the new Core i5-3427U Ultra mobile processor that Intel is launching today... What follows is a look at Intel's latest Ultrabook vision and the shape of things to come in no-compromise highly mobile computing according to Intel.

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.
