News: Exploring the impact of memory speed on Sandy Bridge performance
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 11:13A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
K-Series Sandy Bridge CPUs have unlocked memory multipliers that make it easy to take advantage of faster memory modules. We explore performance with a range of memory configurations to see whether Intel`s latest CPU architecture makes good use of exotic DIMMs."

Intel Core i7 990 X Review

AMD A8-3850 Llano APU
     Mon, Aug 29 2011 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the APU was a bit more difficult as it is not a Black Edition processor so the multiplier is locked. The only way to get more juice out of it is by raising the voltage and pushing the reference clock up until it is no longer stable. I was able to squeeze just past 700MHz more by raising the reference clock to 125MHz. The kicker was the voltage had to be regulated just right because too little left me unstable and anything more than 1.48 volts made the processor too hot and forced it to throttle down to keep from overheating. It seemed anything more than 60 degrees Celsius, the APU would down-clock the multiplier to 26x or less making the overclock run worse than the stock speeds. As long as I kept the voltage under control, the overclock was stable and even ran Prime95 with no throttling."

AMD A8-3850 Llano APU Review
     Fri, Aug 26 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following in the footsteps of Brazos, AMD is now ready to unleash its bigger brother. Codenamed "Llano," the new arrival resides in AMD's "Lynx" platform and packs four Husky cores (very similar to what's inside Athlon II processors), along with a robust GPU based on the Evergreen family's Redwood architecture. As a refresher, the Evergreen GPUs powered AMD's last-generation Radeon HD 5000 graphics cards. Llano's graphics core feature anywhere from 160 to 400 stream processors, which should make them considerably more powerful than any other integrated graphics solution we have seen to date.

AMD A8-3870 APU with Unlocked BClk Multiplier - Ready for Overclocking?
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 5:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After a modest launch of two Fusion A8 series desktop accelerated processing units (APUs) with A6-3650 and A8-3850, AMD is planning to launch a new APU that's better equipped for overclocking. The new A8-3870 APU will feature an unlocked base clock (BClk) multiplier that makes overclocking easier. Currently, a BIOS bug that is spread across motherboard manufacturers, lets users "set" a higher multiplier value for A8-3850 than it's advertised or capable of responding to, resulting in a false illusionary overclock that doesn't yield any performance improvements over the default 29x multiplier value. The A8-3870 APU, however, will have a genuinely unlocked multiplier, increasing the multiplier value will genuinely increase clock speeds and performance. The A8-3870 is expected to have a default clock speed of 3.10 GHz, four x86-64 cores..."

AMD A8-3850 Llano (LostCircuits)
     Thu, Aug 25 2011 | 4:59P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Llano is an interesting inception. After reading all the initial reviews it sounded like Llano as a concept was great but primarily suited for the mobile market. There is certainly some truth to this argument but I still don’t buy it. The mobile market has been supposed to kill the desktop for the last almost 10 years and arguably, it is where the biggest growth is but let’s face it, when it comes to doing some real work, I still prefer my old-fashioned tower with plenty of horse power and where I don’t have to worry about getting blisters on my lap if the darn thing overheats. Seriously, the entry-level desktop market is a coveted market segment that is subject of the bloodiest fights between Intel and AMD. No less than 90% of all desktop systems are sold into this market segment and yes, there is the corporate user who is not supposed to use the PC for anything but Microsoft Office but there is also the non-corporate user who is simply not using any application that the PC does not support. Which includes some of the moderate load gaming applications as a prime example. In other words, if it looks ugly then what’s the point? If it runs slow, what’s the point – er … If it runs slow and looks ugly, what’s the pointest? Yep, we avoid temptation. Here is the segment where Llano fits right in. You can actually play Dirt2 or HawkX without being embarrassed by your computer in front of the casual visitor who only wanted to show you something cool...

AMD A6-3650, A8-3850 APUs
     Wed, Aug 24 2011 | 3:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD's Bulldozer architecture is still a few more months away, but now we at least have new APUs to tinker with in the mean time. And while Brazos APUs were aimed at 'surrogates' like nettops/netbooks, the new Sabine and Lynx platforms are more full-fledged and intended for real PCs: mobile and desktop, respectively."

i3 vs i5 vs i7 Sandy Bridge comparison
     Tue, Aug 23 2011 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel started 2011 off with the official introduction to their highly anticipated Sandy Bridge processors. We had the chance to take a look at their mid-range i5-2500k and we loved it. The i5-2500k isn’t perfect for everyone, that’s why Intel has introduced a range of processors. Today we will be taking a look at their i3-2100 and i7-2600 to see how they stand in the grand scheme of things. While we do, we will retest the i5-2500k and put the three head to head to find out what the extra money gets you.

Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz CPU Review
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One thing that we noticed is that the Intel Pentium G620 had the same gaming performance as the Intel Core i3-2120. The Intel Core i3-2120 has a clock frequency of 3.3GHz and Hyper-Threading. With a 700MHz higher clock speed you'd expect the Intel Core i3-2120 to perform better than a Pentium G620, but that was not the case. Both the Intel Pentium G620 and Intel Core i3-2120 were found to have identical performance and that makes sense as both share Intel HD Graphics 2000 GPU's..."

AMD’s Llano A8-3850 and A6-3650 APUs
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:13P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, AMD made it very clear that they wanted to challenge Intel in several market segments. The first fight was over low power, light weight laptops with the launch of the AMD E-350 which took on the Intel Atom. It was a grueling match that ended in a split decision for AMD. Now it is time for the mainstream desktop championship to be put on the line against AMD’s new A8-3850/A6-3650 APUs and their new corner man, the Hudson FCH. Does AMDs new contender have what it takes to take the title belt?

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.
