AMD Unveils Beema and Mullins: A Greater than Expected Refresh of Kabini
     Thu, May 01 2014 | 9:05A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These Beema and Mullins parts are not yet available, but if they deliver on their promises, they will be a significant improvement for AMD over their previous generation parts. Dropping the TDP, while raising the clocks as significantly as they have will allow AMD to more adequately compete against Intels Bay Trail parts as well as the low power Haswell units. AMD continues to outperform Intel on the graphics front with these APUs, and that does not look to change until Intel releases their next generation Broadwell processors. "

AMD Beema and Mullins APU Performance 3rd Generation APUs @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 30 2014 | 9:05A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During CES 2014, AMD announced their development of their next generation low powered APUs being designed for tablets, notebooks and small form factor systems.  Detailed information is finally available for their new ?Beema? and ?Mullins? APUs.  Beema is being targeted at the notebook, ultrabook and small form factor type systems, while Mullins is geared towards tablet usage.  For this generation of APU, AMD has achieved integrating an ARM Cortex A5 for platform security processor, quad Puma+ GPU cores, lowering power usage for CPU, GPU and I/O, increasing the frequency, and increasing the memory bandwidth.  In April 2014, AMD invited Legit Reviews to their corporate office to have some hands-on time with their Mullins APU. Read on to see what we learned and how a discovery tablet performed!"

AMD Low-Power APUs: Beema and Mullins Preview
     Tue, Apr 29 2014 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Bay Trail platform and low-power Haswell offerings may be the go-to choice when it comes to mainstream Windows tablets and laptops, but AMD believes that their next generation chips will be the best. A refinement of their work on APUs in the past few years, the new chips, ‘Beema’ and ‘Mullins’, are set to be strong contenders in this segment. Both products make use of AMD’s new Puma+ CPU cores and a GCN GPU with 128 compute cores at varying frequencies.

Intel Xeon "Haswell Refresh" CPU Details Leaked
     Tue, Apr 29 2014 | 2:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here are the details of the upcoming "Haswell Refresh" of the Intel Xeon E3-1200 v3 series of processors. As is well known by now, Intel has decided to delay their "Tick" - the 14 nm die shrink, and introduce a refresh of the Intel Haswell processors instead, starting with the desktop models and followed by the workstation models. While these "Haswell Refresh" models have new model numbers, they are no different from the current Haswell processors. There are some changes in the position and number of capacitors at the bottom of the processor package, but the only real change is a slightly faster clock speed. They will therefore replace (not supplement) the current Haswell processors, although they will co-exist until stocks of the older models are exhausted.

AMD Beema and Mullins Low-Power 2014 APUs
     Tue, Apr 29 2014 | 2:10P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks back, we got the chance to get some hands on time with AMD’s upcoming mainstream and low-power APUs (Accelerated Processing Units), codenames Beema and Mullins. These APUs are the successors to last year’s Temash and Kabini APUs, which powered an array of small form factor and mobile platforms. With this release, however, AMD was laser focused on improving power consumption and efficiency, expanding the platform’s capabilities through both hardware and software tweaks, and of course improving performance over the previous generation. Beema and Mullins are based on the same piece of silicon, but will target different market segments. Beema is the mainstream part that will find its way into affordable notebook, small form factor systems, and mobile devices. Mullins, however, is a much lower-power derivative, designed for tablets and convertible systems...

Posted by: STAFF
Today, in a press conference at GDC, new Intel desktop CPU head Lisa Graff offered her assessment of the desktop PC market--which may not be what you'd expect--and offered a sneak peek at some upcoming products intended to revitalize Intel's desktop CPU business. Those include, blessedly, new Haswell parts with a better thermal interface material and packaging for improved overlclocking and a socketed Broadwell with Iris Pro graphics. The juicy details are here:

Intel-built NUC
     Tue, Apr 29 2014 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first, Intel-built NUC (short for Next Unit of Computing) debuted a little over a year ago, and our own Scott Wasson picked it apart at the time. Today, we're back with a mini-PC that's based on the same form factor but trades the power-sipping mobile CPU for a quad-core desktop specimen.

Budget CPU Roundup: AMD Kabini vs. Intel Bay Trail-D
     Mon, Apr 28 2014 | 3:46P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Low-end desktop SoCs typically come soldered to motherboards, including AMD's 2011 Brazos platform as well as Intel's Bay Trail-D. Since upgradability is limited in that scenario anyway, many people see tablets and related options as being more practical for their price and portability. AMD hopes to change that with its AM1 platform, which currently offers four APUs as well as a range of affordable motherboards. While checking out the new AM1 APUs, we included many potentially competing chips we had on hand or picked up, to give you a clearer picture of what is available and help determine which solution is right for you.

AMD Mantle Patch for THIEF on Intel 3570K CPU @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 11:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Battlefield 4 was the first game to support Mantle, and Legit Reviews found that with just a driver update and patch by EA-DICE, Mantle did provide a significant performance increase.  Now, Square Enix has stepped up and patched Thief to support Mantle and AMD?s TrueAudio.  Recently, we tested the patch on an AMD A10-5800 APU and found that it provided a performance increase, which was dependent on the quality settings. Let?s take a look at how Mantle affects the performance of Thief on an Intel CPU."

current APIs over what AMD is offering today?
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There is room for improvement in how the messaging goes out, and how results are curated, but the fundamental technological changes of the 337.50 driver are still impressive when seen in action. In our SLI results I was personally able to see up to 36% performance scaling in a couple of titles with the GTX 780 Ti and GTX 770 cards. Single GPU results in our choice of games showed gains up to 16% with the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and up to 26% with the GeForce GTX 780 Ti."

Kabini-based Athlon 5350
     Fri, Apr 25 2014 | 5:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"These new Kabini chips represent a move to create an affordable, low cost desktop platform that can be had by anyone. With a MSRP of $54 for the Athlon 5300 and $60 for the ASUS AM1I-A motherboard, you could assemble an entry level computer for $300 to $400 depending on what you spend for a case, PSU, HDD, keyboard, monitor and maybe even speakers."

AMDs New Athlon/Semprons Give Old Phenom CPUs A Big Run For The Money
     Fri, Apr 25 2014 | 2:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Curious how AMD`s new AM1 platform APUs compare to the original AMD Phenom processors? Wondering myself, I ran some tests showing how the Sempron 2650 and 3850 along with the Athlon 5150 and 5350 compare to the original Phenom 9500 and Phenom II X3 710 processors with RS780/RS880 motherboards. Besides the new APUs being competitive against the old hardware while costing much less than the original Phenom CPUs, their power consumption is also at a fraction of AMD`s former high-end processors. Here`s a brief but nice look at AMD`s processing evolution in going from Phenom CPUs to today`s AMD budget APUs."

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.
