IBM pushing competitiveness in server CPU market
     Sun, Nov 01 2015 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
IBM has recently decided to open part of its software source code for the China government to examine, and with IBM's action to license its Power chip architecture to China's chip designers in 2014, sources from the server supply chain believe IBM is looking to compete against Intel in the server CPU market with help from China's IT industry.

AMD A10-7800 “Kaveri” APU Review
     Fri, Oct 16 2015 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In January 2014 AMD unveiled its latest generation of accelerated processing units dubbed “Kaveri”. The range was formed of the A10-7850K flagship, the A10-7700K mid-range part and the entry level & low power A8-7600. Back in February I conducted a comprehensive performance analysis of all the released Kaveri APUs. In short, I found them all to be very interesting but I was most impressed by the A8-7600. The reason for this is that it offered a solid amount of performance for its thermal envelope and price, overall the A8-7600 seems ideal for anyone building a multi-use entry level system. The configurable TDP option, of between 45 to 65W, also makes the A8-7600 a great choice for a wide variety of form factors: such as HTPCs, fanless systems and so on. AMD’s A8-7600 is only getting launched now, despite being paper-launched back in January. Alongside the launch of the A8-7600 AMD is also releasing a new APU, the A10-7800 – which is what we are testing in this review. The A10-7800 will be physically identical to the A10-7850K except it does not come with an unlocked option. The main reason for that is that the A10-7800 is optimised for low power and has the configurable TDP of 45-65W like the A8-7600 does.

Intel Core i5 6500: A Great Skylake CPU For $200, Works Well On Linux
     Thu, Oct 15 2015 | 5:10P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With Skylake's retail availability improving, we're starting to see more of the Skylake processors in stock besides just the i5-6600K and i7-6700K. One of the other processors now widely available is the Core i5 6500, which is a step down from the Core i5 6600K, but retails at just $199 USD -- making it an attractive offer for many building new PCs and trying to stick to a decent budget. I've been testing out an i5-6500 under Ubuntu Linux and so far this processor with HD Graphics 530 is running well and offers compelling CPU performance relative to older Intel hardware as well as AMD's APU/CPU competition."

32nm 8-core CPU released
     Sun, Oct 11 2015 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at an 32nm 8-core CPU released late last year, the AMD FX 8320E. This Vishera-based CPU was intended to be a low power (and lower cost) FX solution that won't require users to splurge on a new motherboard. That said, it still features an unlocked multiplier for overclocking. We put its stock clock performance to the test and compare it to similar FX offerings from AMD.

ASUS ZenPad 7.0's True CPU Speed.
     Wed, Oct 07 2015 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our review of the ASUS ZenPad 7.0, we pointed out that it was powered by a quad-core Intel Atom x3-C3230 SoC running at 1.2 GHz. However, we noticed that it was much slower than the ASUS ZenFone 2 in both work performance and 3D graphics. At first, we chalked that up to the ASUS ZenFone 2's faster quad-core Intel Atom Z3580 processor. The disparity was a lot more than what we expected, so we dug deeper. Then we discovered that it was slower for a much different reason.

Core i7-990X machine
     Wed, Sep 30 2015 | 1:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After starting to mess explore the Panasonic GH4 and 4K video a few months ago, the age of this machine became quite apparent. Real-time playback of high bit rate 4K content was choppy at best, and scrubbing through the timeline next to impossible. Transcoding to a lower resolution mezzanine file, or turning down the playback quality in Premiere Pro worked to some extent, but made the visual quality we gained more difficult to deal with. It was clear that we were going to need a new workstation sooner than later.

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.
