Intel Sandy Bridge Shapes Up On GCC 4.7 Compiler
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in January I wrote about how open-source compilers are quickly maturing for Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs and offering early support for Intel Ivy Bridge and Intel Haswell processors. Both GCC and LLVM have been quick to take advantage of the new instruction set extensions and other capabilities of these latest -- and very impressive -- Intel processors. With the release of GCC 4.7 quickly approaching, here is an updated set of GNU Compiler Collection Fortran/C/C++ benchmarks from the Intel Core i7 3960X Sandy Bridge Extreme Edition test-bed."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to compare the performance of Socket FM1 and LGA 1155 systems. Will a hybrid Llano processor be able to beat the entry-level Intel CPU paired with an entry-level graphics accelerator? How efficient AMD Dual Graphics technology is? Does overclocking make Socket FM1 systems more attractive?

Intel Second Generation Core i7 3820 Review
     Sat, Mar 17 2012 | 8:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my first run, I intended to see what kind of bclock tolerance the chip had. Eventually, I was able to push the bclock from 100 MHz to 107 MHz; a pretty decent bclock increase that allowed the chip to scale to 4.6 GHz. Again, this was not enough of a clock, as my 2600K does that easily. Next up was the 125 MHz Gear Ratio and multiplier adjustment; this moved the needle quite a bit higher to 5.0 GHz. Further bclock tuning up to 125.625 MHz gained a prime stable 5025 MHz clock speed from the chip. Further tuning of the bclock could have raised the bar even higher, though without the benefit of long term stability. Nonetheless, it was capable of running the entire benchmark suite at 5.1 GHz. Voltage tuning and enhanced cooling was needed to get these clock speeds, but nothing more extreme than what most would endeavour to use."

Posted by: STAFF
AMD released the Bulldozer architecture processors late last year. In this review we will take a look at the AMD FX-8120 processor, which is the slowest octacores AMD has, but the differences between it and faster models are only in the operating frequency. Let?s see how well it performs and if it can hold the line against Intel Core I5 processors."

Intel Xeon E5-2600 Sany Bridge-EP Server Processors @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since each of the Intel Xeon E5-2660 processors has eight cores plus hyper-threading, the Intel Grizzly Pass server has a total of 32 threads of processing power. When the Windows task manager was opened up for the first time, we couldn`t help being impressed by the look of 32 threads. It`s hard to imagine that just a few short years ago we were oohing and aahing over dual core processors..."

Intel Ivy Bridge: everything you need to know
     Mon, Mar 12 2012 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is set to roll out its latest generation of processors sometime this spring despite a minor setback affecting ultra low-voltage models -- the ones destined for super slim notebooks. By normal standards, the launch should mark a new "tick" in the company's product roadmap, but Intel is going beyond just shrinking the current 32nm Sandy Bridge processor by introducing some fundamental advancements along with its new 22nm process. For those unfamiliar, Intel follows a "tick tock" model for its processor upgrade cycle. With every "tick" the company moves to a smaller manufacturing process, from 32nm to 22nm in this case, dramatically increasing transistor density while enhancing performance and energy efficiency of the current microarchitecture. Then, with an alternating "tock" cycle Intel introduces a new processor microarchitecture. Ivy Bridge includes manufacturing and subsystem improvements. It is a shrink of Sandy Bridge and is also the first to us Intel's Tri-Gate transistors, which use a nonplanar architecture to cram more transistors into less space, therefore consuming less power or delivering more performance within the same power envelope. There's been quite a bit of information on Ivy Bridge going around ever since Intel detailed the architecture late last year. We'll recap some of the major changes and practical implications, while also bringing you up to speed on the latest developments, including expected launch lineup and specs.

Intel Core i7-3820 Quad-Core Core Processor Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Mar 10 2012 | 11:44A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released their new Sandy Bridge-E Processors late last year there was the flagship processor the i7-3930K which has a price tag of $599 and the I7-3930X which has an even more staggering price tag of $999. When these processors were announced there was word of a more budget-friendly processor that would be out in Q1 of this year. It is here in the form of the Core i7-3820. This processor features 4 cores, features Intel?s Hyperthreading technology for up to 8 threads, a default clock speed of 3.6GHz with a turbo speed of 3.9GHz, 10MB of Intel Smart Cache, and this processor is built on the 32nm process. This processor puts Intel?s X79 platform in the reach of many people with a price tag that is half of the i7-3930K at $300. Read on to see what this processor is all about."

Core i7 3820 processor review
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 4:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Core i7 3820 processor. The chip features four computing cores with Hyper-Threading support working at 3.6GHz (3.9GHz max Turbo), 10MB of Level 3 cache memory, a quad-channel memory controller, and a built-in 40-lane PCI Express 3.0 controller. Still, the Core i7-3820 might not have its MP`s unlocked, but that doesn`t mean it cant overclock on the baseclock + it has a multiplier still capable of 43. Today we`ll test the Core i7-3820 and will see how it performs in its baseline configuration and obviously also try to overclock it a little. Read the article here"

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.
