Dying Atoms: The Failure Of Low-Power x86 Processors
     Fri, May 04 2012 | 4:19P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Consumers have spoken. Nettops are all but dead an all-in-ones have moved to laptop versions of Intel processors instead of Atom. Even netbooks seem to be nearing the end of their life. We`ve heard from ASUS that their next line of netbooks, which will be powered by the AMD E-Series, is the last they have planned."

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.

Intel Ivy Bridge i5-3570K and i7-3770K Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time seems to fly. Just over one year ago Intel introduced Sandy Bridge to the world. Packing a high performance CPU, with mega overclockability for the K skews, yet keeping power consumption and heat to a bare minimum. The best part was that Sandy Bridge was affordable and even a big threat to Intel`s flagship, the socket 1366. World records were smashed at HWBot, as this little socket 1155 CPU overclocked to 5.8Ghz and beyond. The instructions per clock were way faster then anything we were accustomed too. End of last year, it was time to replace the aging socket 1366 by Sandy Bridge-E. The socket 2011 has big potential with it`s quad channel RAM support and multi GPU excellence via 40 PCI-E lanes. But the overall clock speeds of the SB-E were disappointing. Most CPU`s don`t even go over 5500mhz on cold. Today we are gonna introduce the Die shrink of the little affordable Sandy Bridge CPU`s : Codename Ivy Bridge <"

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge Processor Review
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the great things about Intel’s “Tick, Tock” release cadence is that it gives us all an early glimpse into the company’s future plans and potential product offerings, especially since they’ve been able to execute so well over the last few years. Seeing Conroe eventually evolve into Penryn, and Nehalem into Westmere has given us all an idea as to what to expect with today’s official launch of Ivy Bridge, the “Tick” to Sandy Bridge’s “Tock”, otherwise known as Intel’s 3rd Generation Core Processor family. Of course, if you haven’t stayed on top of Intel’s plans since announcing their “Tick, Tock” model, you could have just read the myriad of leaks that have plagued this launch, but that’s a discussion for another day. Today is all about Ivy Bridge and its official launch in both desktop and mobile flavors. We have had Intel’s flagship Ivy Bridge-based Core i7-3770K desktop processor humming along in the lab for a while now and have the full scoop on microarchitecture and the new capabilities it brings to Intel’s processor line-up available here...

Intel Core i7-3720QM Ivy Bridge Mobile Processor Review
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might say Intel has been absolutely killing it as of late. Whether you consider their recent earnings announcement beating Wall Street's expectations, the Ultrabook craze, their re-entrance into the handset arena with their Medfield platform, or the proliferation of their 2nd generation Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor in the market; it's perfectly clear the company is in an execution groove that will fuel both their own growth as well as industry growth for some time to come. As if that weren't enough, the company is obviously champing at the bit for the launch of their 3rd generation Core series processor known by the code name Ivy Bridge. From full-on leaks of NDA classified information and performance results, to the official, blessed unveiling of Intel's companion 7 Series chipset platform, it's as if we've been hearing about Ivy Bridge for what seems like an eternity. In any event, today is the day that Intel's long rumored and hyped Ivy Bridge 3rd Generation Core processors get real and we've got the full lowdown for you here.

Testing Ivy Bridge: Intel Core i7-3770K Reviewed
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today the company is unveiling its full new line of Core i7 and Core i5 processors, accompanying chipsets and Centrino wireless options. Ivy Bridge is a 'tick' release, but Intel is calling it a tick+ due to the more significant overhaul the graphics side of things is getting. The new chips are set to provide 20–50% better GPU performance over Sandy Bridge, the kind of jump we'd normally expect from a tock release. Having already discussed the new Tri-Gate transistors in great detail, the new 7-series chipsets, and some of the motherboards that use them, we are going to focus primarily on the Core i7-3770K processor in this review.

AMD A8-3870K Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD APUs so far have made a positive impression with many people, offering mainstream quad core computing with integrated discrete class GPU. By releasing a Black Edition APU with an unlocked multiplier, AMD would have made a lot of enthusiasts happy because they are no longer limited to overclocking on the baseclock, which can be a very fiddly affair. Using the multiplier to overclock users can hit higher frequencies with little effort and for the extreme overclockers will discover the limits of the APU under sub-zero cooling. For the common folk, the unlocked multiplier will not really matter so AMD have given the A8-3870K a modest 100MHz bump in frequency over the previous A8-3850 APU."
