AMD Fusion Developers Summit Day 1 Keynote Coverage
     Wed, Jun 20 2012 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lisa Su, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Global Business Units, opened up this year’s AMD Fusion Developers Summit by reiterating AMD’s commitment to heterogeneous computing. She began her talk by saying that AMD is firmly committed to heterogeneous computing because the company has literally bet its future on the technology. Perhaps that's a bold move on AMD's part or just an alignment with what the future computing model is evolving towards inevitably.

Building A 96-Core Ubuntu ARM Solar-Powered Cluster
     Tue, Jun 19 2012 | 7:28A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I shared results from the Phoronix 12-core ARM Linux mini cluster that was constructed out of six PandaBoard ES development boards. Over the weekend, a 96-core ARM cluster succeeded this build. While packing nearly 100 cores and running Ubuntu Linux, the power consumption was just a bit more than 200 Watts. This array of nearly 100 processor cores was even powered up by a solar panel."

12-Core ARM Cluster Benchmarked Against Intel Atom Ivy Bridge AMD Fusion
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I shared my plans to build a low-cost, 12-core, 30-watt ARMv7 cluster running Ubuntu Linux. The ARM cluster that is built around the PandaBoard ES development boards is now online and producing results... Quite surprising results actually for a low-power Cortex-A9 compute cluster. Results include performance-per-Watt comparisons to Intel Atom and Ivy Bridge processors along with AMD`s Fusion APU."

Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5-3427U / Ultrabook Platform Review: Making Slower Faster
     Sun, Jun 17 2012 | 9:10A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its clear from the processor benchmarks that Intel has managed to bestow the low-voltage Ivy Bridge parts with a performance boost thats just as respectable as the one given to the companys Core i7-3720QM and other Ivy Bridge processors. The new Core i5-3427U is in a few cases able to beat the standard voltage Sandy Bridge Core i5-2540M. The 2540M is no slouch its one of the quicker Sandy Bridge Core i5 mobile parts. Even when behind, the new 3427U puts up a good fight."

Sandy Bridge for servers: Intel Xeon E5-2600 review
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a maximum of eight cores, 256-bit AVX instructions, quad-channel memory and integrated PCI-Express 3.0 I/O connections, Intel has significantly improved its dual-socket server platform. Whether workloads benefit more from pure processing power, fast memory communication or faster I/O, the new Sandy Bridge architecture has clear advantages in all areas compared to Intel's previous server platform. This is reflected by the test results. For example, with HPC applications we saw performance gains of a couple dozen percent. The database benchmark showed an improvement of 36 percent compared to the previous generation. The performance-per-watt has also increased according to the results, both in tests focusing on pure CPU power and the database benchmarks that take advantage more of memory bandwidth.

AMD E-Series APU “Brazo 2.0?
     Wed, Jun 13 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A glance over AMD’s plan shows that 2012 will see a greater push for APUs. From high performance systems all the way down to everyday performance and productivity systems, AMD has APUs designed to meet users’ computing needs. After introducing the second generation mobile A-Series APU (codenamed Trinity) in May, AMD today brings us the low power E-Series edition of the APU, codenamed Brazos 2.0, and designed for very basic computing needs.

AFDS 2012: HSA Foundation Joins AMD ARM Ti Imagination and MediaTek with Open Architecture
     Tue, Jun 12 2012 | 1:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a lot of implications in this simple statement and there are many questions that are left open ended to which we hope to get answered this week while at AFDS. The idea of a single architecture specification set a lot of things in motion and makes us question the direction of both AMD and the traditionally ARM-based companies of the HSA Foundation will be moving in."

Building a Low Cost APU System (Media, Productivity and Gaming) @ HardwareHeaven.com Recently AMD set us the challenge of building a low cost APU system to see if it would be possible to build a decent media/productivity/gaming PC on a minimal budget. It`s something different to a review which is always a nice change so we set about looking at what could be done when pretty much every component has to cost 60 or less."
