Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Intel announced their Haswell refresh some of us questioned where the “K-Series” unlocked processors were. We soon found out that Intel was working on two special processors made for enthusiasts codenamed “Devil’s Canyon”. These “Devil’s Canyon” processors would make up the K-Series of the Haswell refresh, but also have features that the other processors do not. Intel has addressed many issues that we saw on Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors in the past. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship Core i7-4790K quad-core processor. This is Intel’s first consumer processor to be clocked at 4.0 GHz and it actually boosts all the way up to 4.4 GHz! Let’s take a look…"

Intel Pentium G3258 Dual Core Processor Gaming Performance @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 10:41A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week Nate & I were able to get our hands on the Intel Pentium G3258 20th Anniversary Edition Processor to take for a ride. While he was doing this, he focused most of his time on the X86 performance of the 3.2GHz Dual Core processor. He did touch a little bit on the graphics performance of the Intel HD graphics on the G3258 as well as pairing the processor with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 TI for a run through of Metro Last Light. I wanted to take the $72.99 dual core Intel Pentium G3258 processor for a spin and focus on gaming performance with a solid discrete graphics card and see how it would stack up against the same system with an Intel Core i7-4770K processor which retails for considerably more..."

Intel Core i7 4790K “Devil’s Canyon” Processor Review
     Fri, Jul 18 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel released its Devil’s Canyon CPUs at the start of this month in time for this year’s Computex event. Sadly we were delayed in getting our sample of the Core i7 4790K, which means our review has come out a little late, but nevertheless we have Intel’s new flagship on the test bench today for a good thorough review. For those of you who don’t know about Devil’s Canyon, it is Intel’s internal codename for its new Haswell Refresh K series CPUs. Devil’s Canyon includes the Core i7 4790K and Core i5 4690K, both quad core parts based on Haswell Microarchitecture but with speed bumps and a few modifications. There isn’t that much to say specifically about the Core i7 4790K that wasn’t already noted in our Core i7 4770K review, because the microarchitecture is still Haswell. However, there are a few new features that Intel is bringing to the table with Devil’s Canyon that have specifically been done to appease Intel enthusiasts and overclockers. The Core i7 4790K is unique in the regard that Intel have listened to the feedback and concerns of its user base and tried to make specific modifications to eliminate or reduce those concerns.

Intel Fourth Generation Core i7 4790K
     Thu, Jul 17 2014 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Before I started overclocking, I had high hopes that Devil's Canyon would do much better than Haswell in the clock speed department thanks to the improved thermals and power supply work. Sadly, I found that its Haswell roots run deep and ultimately limited my overall clock speed to 4.6GHz. I was able to run the ring ratio as high as 45 while keeping the clock speed at 4.6GHz. Running higher speeds was possible with some jaunts to 4.8GHz, but the voltage needed to reach the number was not worth the effective cost to get there over the long term. 4.7-4.8GHz is great for some quick and dirty benching, but not possible on this particular chip even running under water. At this time, I have to surmise that overclocking on the Core i7 4790K is going to be the same as we get when overclocking any Haswell chip. As the third Haswell-based chip I have tested, I have seen a 4.5GHz, 4.6GHz, and 4.7GHz chip, confirming my suspicions. I can't fully condemn overclocking on Devil's Canyon, but it will be the luck of the draw as much as it was with Haswell.”

AMD Athlon 5350 and Gigabyte GA-AM1M-S2H Review
     Mon, Jul 14 2014 | 9:12A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you haven?t heard, desktop computing is losing serious ground to other, increasingly affordable computing solutions, including notebooks, chromebooks, and tablets. Desktops are still around. You probably have one at home and you probably use one at work. With mobile gaming on the rise and so many productivity features being streamlined for mobile platforms, the need for a powerful desktop computer because your other devices can?t handle the load is declining. According to AMD, entry level computing options make up the majority of the market. In this review, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at the AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini desktop processor paired with the Gigabyte GA-AM1M-S2H mATX motherboard and 4GB of DDR3 1600MHz AMD Radeon Series RAM."

AMD FX-9590 & FX-9370
     Mon, Jul 14 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The FX-9370 acted in all respects like the FX 9590 when it came to overclocking and reached almost as high, albeit using a bit more voltage to get the job done. As a slower chip out of the gate, there was more overclocking headroom available to improve performance, where the FX-9590 only had 368MHz worth of overhead. Ultimately, I had to settle for a thermally limited 5016MHz, or 616MHz bump, over the base clock speed of 4.4GHz. All other settings in the BIOS were equal to that of the FX-9590, but the FX-9370 needed 1.54v to break the 5GHz barrier. As far as looking for a lot of room on these chips, AMD found most of it when it binned these samples out. Both chips could easily boot to 5.2GHz and do screenshots, but for full-on testing and stability, I stuck with the numbers you see here.”

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable
     Mon, Jul 14 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end the Logitech G502 is a sensational gaming mouse that is comfortable to use, well refined and pin point accurate. This looks like the mouse I have been waiting for and it might see me retire my trusty old workhorse, the Performance MX. That said, I do have my fingers crossed for a chunkier version in the future that is better suited to bigger hands, maybe the G702? :)

dual-core CPU based on the latest 22-nm Haswell silicon
     Fri, Jul 11 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This new Pentium is an unlocked dual-core CPU based on the latest 22-nm Haswell silicon. I ran out and picked one up as soon as they went on sale last week. The list price is only 72 bucks, but Micro Center had them on sale for $60. In other words, you can get a processor that will quite possibly run at clock speeds north of 4GHz—with all the per-clock throughput of Intel's very latest CPU core—for the price of a new Call of Shooty game.

AMD about access to their Mantle API
     Tue, Jul 08 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "If Intel straight-up adopts Mantle, especially if they have offer some compelling iGPUs alongside it, that puts a few more eyes on NVIDIA. Currently, it would be safe to assume that NVIDIA has little-to-no plans of supporting any API controlled and guided by a direct competitor. The company exerts as much control as they possibly can, in terms of how they deliver an experience to their users. Basically, they (habitually) want to be the ones to make their customers happy. On the other hand, if NVIDIA does adopt Mantle, that would leave us with a seemingly well-designed API, with significantly less driver tuning, with compatibility for DirectX-style materials, and with support for Windows, Linux, and other platforms... that is owned by AMD."
