How to Overclock an Intel 4770K Guide
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 12:52P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel C-State allows for the CPU to lower its current frequency along with voltage. C-States vary from C0 (Operating state) down to Haswell`s new C6/C7 in which the CPU is in sleep/hibernation. By default all motherboards will have this enabled typically under the title Intel-C-State. When C-State is set to C0, the CPU will not drop voltage or frequency. This can be helpful to establish an overclock if running into stability problems. While I noticed zero negative impact on the Haswell, please be aware that using CPU Voltage Override along with enabling C-State may cause the voltage to stay constant when the CPU frequency drops. Once again this did not happen for me but with some motherboards this can be an issue. The solution is to use CPU Voltage Offset instead or disable C-State completely."

Betting On Bay Trail: Intel's Atom Overhaul Tested:
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has done some impressive things with Atom, including its first serious forays into mobile phones and tablets, but the Bonnell microarchitecture that debuted in 2008 was explicitly designed to emphasize low power consumption, not performance. ARM has released multiple processor updates since 2008 -- the Cortex-A8 debuted that year, followed by the Cortex-A9 and the Cortex-A15, while Intel's in-order Atom contented itself with die shrinks and feature integration. Such efforts gave us Medfield and Clover Trail devices, but they also risked Intel being permanently painted as an also-ran

Intel Atom Z3770 ‘Bay Trail’ review
     Sat, Sep 21 2013 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are one of the first to extensively test a prototype tablet running on the latest generation Intel Atom processors, and we have the results of 20+ different benchmarks. The Atom Z3000 ‘Bay Trail’ CPUs are supposed to give ARM processors a run for their money, in terms of performance and energy-efficiency. We tested prototype Windows 8.1 and Android 4.2 tablets with the new Atom Z3770 and compared the performance to the current Atom platform and recent ARM chips such as the Nvidia Tegra 4. Will 2014 be the year Intel makes real headway in the tablet market?

Posted by: STAFF
Intel debuts a new generation processors for dual-socket servers at the Intel Developer Forum 2013 today.

The new generation has more cores, better performance, faster memory access, and new virtualisation features. We compare the 12-core top-of-the-line Xeon E5-2697 v2 and the energy-efficient Xeon E5-2650L v2 to the previous generation, Sandy Bridge-EP.

AMD Shows Off New APU Powered Devices
     Thu, Sep 19 2013 | 3:27P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although IDF13 is a decidedly Intel-centric event each year (obviously), it doesn't stop numerous companies from camping out at nearby venues to steal away travelling tech journalists for a few moments of face time. Traditionally, AMD is one of those companies, and as you have probably guessed by now, we stopped in to see what AMD had on display. ...Perhaps the most interesting demo in AMD's suite was a Kaveri-powered system connected to an Oculus Rift VR helmet. Rumors had been swirling recently, which claimed Kaveri-AMD's next-gen, Steamroller-based APU--had been delayed until 2014. Today, however, reps from AMD said Kaveri would still ship this year, though no other details were given.
