AMD A8-3870K Black Edition APU Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black Edition A8-3870K APU from AMD is aimed at the mainstream market and offers enough performance for occasional gaming at lower resolutions, other multimedia activities or office work, this without the need to buy a dedicated video card. Thanks to the unlocked multiplier, overclocking becomes much easier than before and the performance gains after this operation are quite surprising."

AMD Trinity APU Preview: Evolution or Devolution?
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 11:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On 15th May 2012, AMD will launch the successor of their consumer oriented Fusion A-series Llano APUs, codenamed Trinity, which will be powered by their new Piledriver cores (still 32nm follow-up of the much derided Bulldozer). We take an exclusive look at the architecture behind it... and run full suite of benchmarks in an upcoming piece."

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."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge LGA1155 Processor Review
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,It?s for another processor launch from Intel. The new Ivy Bridge is a 22nm architecture based on the same LGA1155 socket as Sandy Bridge. It?s basically a shrunken die from Sandy Bridge (32nm) supporting many of the same features, but on the supporting Z77 chipset side (code named ?Panther Point?), adds native USB 3.0, PCI Express 3.0, Lucid MVP and faster DDR3 memory support. This chipset is found on motherboards like the MSI Z77A-GD65 that we reviewed with the original Sandy Bridge CPU onboard. *"

Intel Ivy Bridge Live
     Sat, Apr 28 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of performance, Ivy Bridge adds anywhere between 10 and 20% performance over Sandy Bridge and Sandy Bridge was already a speed demon. As it stands now, discounting Gulftown and Sandy Bridge Extreme processors, nobody is faster than Ivy Bridge in almost any application we tested. Of course, one might argue about the value of the HD4000 graphics in a CPU that still retails at $ 330 but for the performance power user who is not an extreme gamer, this constellation may still be appealing since casual game play is definitely possible without any discrete graphics card. In addition, there is the media processing performance and especially in Mediaespresso – which is the only application we tested here that benefited from hardware accelerated recode capability – Ivy Bridge sets new performance mile stones.

[Affiliates News] Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridg e: Performance Preview and
     Fri, Apr 27 2012 | 7:20A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we get our fair share of evaluation products on NDA here at APH Networks, we don`t usually do performance previews on the stuff we get -- either we get the review done on time, or, well, we release it at our own schedule, haha. But here`s the deal: With Intel`s latest Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor sitting in our labs for the last little while, I am as excited to share our experience with you as much as you are interested in finding out how it performs in the benchmarks. Being the `tick` part of Intel`s `tick-tock` release cycle, what does the 22nm die shrink bring to the table today? To find out, here is a set of quick and dirty benchmarks along with a preliminary overclocking result to go. We will have a full review ready in a few weeks from now (Having a series of Electrical Engineering exams in a row last week certainly did not help). But for now, let`s not waste any more time, and move straight into the meat!"

launch of Ivy Bridge
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ivy Bridge GPU takes advantage of Intel's 22nm FinFET process to nearly double performance and enhance programmability with DX11 and OpenCL 1.1 support. The new scalable architecture features more powerful shader cores, distributed sampling pipelines, a high bandwidth L3 cache, tesselation and 4K resolution displays. Overall, Ivy Bridge should be the highest performance integrated GPU at launch and Intel's first competitive graphics offering.

Intel Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge)
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When compared to the Core i7-2600K the new i7-3770K wasn’t a great deal faster for the most part. Many of our real-world application tests saw very little difference in performance, such as Excel 2010, WinRAR and Photoshop CS5. That said, there were instances where the Core i7-3770K was around 10% faster, such as Fritz Chess 13. Where we saw the biggest gains was in our encoding benchmarks, here the Core i7 3770K was between 10–17% faster than the i7-2600K.

Ivy Bridge is the "tick" that brings a completely new process
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because of this long-tail release of a CPU, we already know quite a bit about Ivy Bridge, the new 22nm processor architecture from Intel to be rebranded as the 3rd Generation Intel Core Processor Family. Ivy Bridge is the "tick" that brings a completely new process technology node as we have seen over the last several years but this CPU does more than take the CPU from 32nm to 22nm. Both the x86 and the processor graphics portions of the die have some changes though the majority fall with the GPU.

Intel announces Ivy Bridge processors
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 4:10P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.comReports Digitimes; "Intel has introduced the quad-core third-generation Intel Core processor family, delivering visual and performance computing gains for gamers, media enthusiasts and mainstream users alike. Available now in high-end desktop, notebook and all-in-one (AIO) designs, the new processors are the first chips made using Intel's 22nm 3D tri-Gate transistor technology.

The combination of Intel's 3D tri-gate transistor technology and architectural enhancements help make possible up to double the 3D graphics and HD media processing performance compared with its previous generation of chips, said Intel. With as much as 20% microprocessor performance improvements and new technologies to speed the flow of data to and from the chips, the new processors further extend Intel's overall performance leadership.

The performance gains found in the new processors are due in part to the groundbreaking, three-dimensional structure of the new Intel transistors. Until today, computers, servers and other devices have used only two-dimensional planar transistors. Adding a third dimension to transistors allows Intel to increase transistor density and put more capabilities into every square millimeter of these new processors.

The third-generation Intel Core processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 delivers up to two times better 3D graphics performance compared to the previous-generation processor. Intel HD Graphics 4000 supports Microsoft DirectX 11, OpenGL 3.1 and OpenCL 1.1. With Intel Quick Sync Video 2.0 technology built into the new processors, people can convert their videos up to two times faster than even last year's processors and up to 23 times faster than PCs just three years old. Platforms based on third-generation Intel Core processors also deliver faster data transfer capabilities made possible by USB 3.0 integrated into the Series 7 Platform Controller Hub (PCH) and PCI Express 3.0 integrated into the processor."

Ivy Bridge CPUs, 28nm graphics cards facing shortages
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 7:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel is ready to launch and sell its upcoming Ivy Bridge-based processors soon, shipments of the processor are estimated to be lower than expected with the possible driver being either low capacity or yield rates, and the situation is forcing Intel to adjust its processor shipment proportions for notebook and desktop platforms, according to sources from PC players, which added that Nvidia and AMD are also facing shortage issues for their 28nm graphics cards.
