Posted by: STAFF
We`ve released our latest article about the new mobile APUs from AMD, Trinity: `While Intel is currently dominating the high-end processors AMD has been successful on another front with their low power APUs; processors which merges the CPU and GPU. The APUs have been especially popular on notebooks as they offer a lot of performance per watt and even come with decent graphics capabilities built in. Today AMD is presenting the next generation APUs: Trinity, also called 2012 A-series APUs. The goal with this generation of APU`s is to offer more performance, better media capabilities, better game performance and all that while still offer long battery life."

[vrz] AMD Trinity A10-4600M APU Review: Jumping the Shark?
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has gained considerable market share in the budget computing segment since last year`s launch of the Llano APU, with good enough CPU performance balanced with entry discreet level graphics to boot. After the uncompetitive showing of Bulldozer with their FX enthusiast chips and Opterons, followed by harrowing departures of historically key personnel, the remaining team went back to the drawing board and made a few tweaks to their 32nm BD core architecture. Their efforts resulted in Piledriver, which will debut with the 2012 Trinity Mobile APUs today and then feature in server and desktop product refreshes later this year. Is this the light at the end of the tunnel or just another epic facepalm for AMD?"

AMD A10-4600M Trinity For Mobile Review: Trying To Cut The Ivy
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Llano was released around the same time as Bulldozer, but it did not use Bulldozer cores. Instead it used yet another update of Stars, which is a mobile incarnation of Phenom II, which was of course an improvement upon the original Phenom. The ?new? Llano APU in fact was equipped with some rather old processor cores. This showed in the performance of the mobile Llano products. They simply could not keep up with Sandy Bridge?s more modern cores. Bulldozer isn?t coming to mobile with Trinity, either. Instead we?re receiving Piledriver. AMD has effectively skipped the first iteration of its new Bulldozer architecture and moved straight on to the second. Piledriver includes the third generation of AMD?s Turbo Core and promises ?up to 29%? better processor performance than last year?s Llano-based A-Series."

CPU shoot-out: Intel Atom D2700 vs. AMD E-450
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel released a new generation of Atom processors based on 32nm transistors. The Atom D2500 and D2700 are intended for cheap mini- or all-in-one PCs. Atom processors with model numbers starting with N are used in netbooks, a product category that has been losing market share since the arrival of tablets. A logical use for Atom processors will of course be the upcoming Windows 8 x86 tablets. Thus far the Atom processors have not impressed very much. The energy efficiency sacrificed too much performance, and compared to the ARM competitors they weren't even that efficient. AMD's Fusion counterpart with its powerful integrated GPU was more interesting for light-weight computers. Does the new generation Atoms change our perception? Hardware.Info examined the new top model Atom, the D2700.

Intel Ivy Bridge Processor Overclocking Proves Challenging For Some Motherboard Makers @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you plan on buying an Intel Ivy Bridge processor we have an article that you have to read today! We have discovered an issue on Gigabyte motherboards that use the Intel 6-series of chipsets that is going to cause overclockers to cringe. Basically, the Gigabyte Z68 and P67 motherboards can`t overclock Ivy Bridge processors as the CPU multiplier is locked due to BIOS limitations. This means that Intel `k` sku processors like the Intel Core i7-3770K processor are stuck at a multiplier of 39 on these boards!"

Dying Atoms: The Failure Of Low-Power x86 Processors

Intel Core i7 3770K / i5 3570K / i5 3550 Ivy Bridge review
     Fri, May 04 2012 | 1:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve seen that the new desktop processors are about 10 per cent faster than their predecessors. It's a nice improvement, but it doesn't give you the feeling that Ivy Bridge is significantly faster than Sandy Bridge. The GPU part of the processors, that's where it gets interesting. Not only does Intel support DirectX 11, but the performance of the integrated GPU has been seriously improved. Intel has not quite reached the level of AMD’s A8 chips, but is getting closer. AMD will have to work hard to stay ahead in terms of graphics. Our measurements of their power consumption proved that Ivy Bridge typically is more efficient than Sandy Bridge. It's not a huge difference, but the 10 per cent performance improvement and better energy efficiency means that the performance-per-watt receives a nice boost. In this regard Intel keeps putting more distance between itself and AMD. For the mobile segment the improved performance-per-watt means that laptops and Ultrabooks can become faster and even thinner with Ivy Bridge. For overclockers we were disappointed in the potential for air and water cooled systems, at least with the samples we tested. Sandy Bridge processors are still better for overclocking and remain cooler. But for overclockers with access to extreme cooling methods, then Ivy Bridge reportedly can provide some spectacular results surpassing the 6GHz mark.
