[Tech ARP] Desktop CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 12.0
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 8:56A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. Currently covering 837 desktop CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 19 different specifications for each and every CPU. Here`s the latest update in Revision 12.0 : - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 651 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 641 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 638 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X2 221 dual-core processor. - Added the AMD Sempron X2 198 dual-core processor. - Added the Voltage specifications to the AMD FX series of processors. - Updated the Transistor Count and Die Size specifications of the AMD FX series of processors. - Updated the Release Date for the AMD FX-8100 8-core processor. - Updated the Release Date for the AMD FX-4170 quad-core processor. - Corrected the Multiplier specifications for the AMD Fusion (A) series of processors."

Intel's Ivy Bridge chips launch using '3D transistors'
     Sun, Apr 22 2012 | 10:57P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"Intel is launching its Ivy Bridge family of processors - the first to feature what it describes as a "3D transistor". The American firm says the innovation allows it to offer more computational power while using less energy. The initial release includes 13 quad-core processors, most of which will be targeted at desktop computers. This is the world's first 22 nanometre product and we'll be delivering about 20% more processor performance using 20% less average power." The firm has already built three factories to fabricate the new chips and a fourth will come online later this year. Mr Skaugen said that those who use the integrated GPU (graphics processing unit) on the chips, rather than a separate graphics card, would see some of the biggest gains. He said the processing speed had been significantly boosted since Sandy Bridge, meaning devices would be capable of handling high-definition video conferences and the 4K resolution offered by top-end video cameras. The GPU's transcoding rate also benefits from the upgrade, allowing users to recode video more quickly if they want to send clips via email or put them on a smartphone. The chips also offer new hardware-based security facilities as well as built-in USB 3.0 support. "

AMDs FX-8150 Bulldozer Benefits From New Compilers Tuning
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After looking at how Intel`s Sandy Bridge processor performance has evolved with the new GCC 4.7 compiler and Apple`s forthcoming LLVM 3.1 with Clang, here are benchmark results from the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer Eight-Core processor with GCC 4.7.0 and the latest LLVM/Clang 3.1 development code along with looking at the performance impact of various compiler tuning flags for this latest-generation AMD CPU. Making things even more interesting, AMD`s Open64 4.5.1 compiler was also tossed into the testing mix."

GCC 4.7 Compiler Performance On AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:33A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we have seen that Intel`s Sandy Bridge is doing well on the new GCC 4.7 compiler, has AMD`s Bulldozer CPU architecture advanced at all for this leading multi-platform compiler? Up today are benchmarks of GCC 4.7.0 -- with comparative benchmarks going back to GCC 4.4 -- from an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Bulldozer setup."

AMD FX-6200 CPU Review: A Small Bulldozer Refresh
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I do not hate this processor. Neither do I love it though. The Bulldozer concept looked great on paper. Implementing it is another story altogether. A popular theory behind why the processor acts as it does is that AMD simply does not have the manpower to hand tune large portions of the chip. There is extensive use of automatic place and route of transistors on the software side, but I have heard it said that this results in a design that is about 20% slower and about 20% larger than a largely hand tuned design. When we start thinking of these numbers, we can look at the size of Bulldozer cores vs. that of the Intel i7/i5 series of parts. The Intel parts are smaller and have a much higher IPC, yet are still clocked aggressively to be the fastest performers on the block."

Xeon E5 2600: Interview with Intel IT's Ajay Chandramouly
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month, Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture finally made its way to the company's dual- and quad-socket-capable server processors with the new Xeon E5 product family. The launch is very important for Intel's business. Not only because of the growing server market, fueled by cloud computing initiatives and Internet-based companies, but also for its push to expand to storage and networking equipment. We had the opportunity to chat with Ajay Chandramouly, Cloud Computing and Data Center Industry Engagement Manager at Intel IT, who gave us some insight on how they have leveraged the Xeon processor family across their global data centers to drive better performance and capabilities along with cost savings.

[Tech ARP] Intel Ivy Bridge June 2012 Details Leaked!
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:12A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at the next slew of processors, which Intel will release on June 3rd, 2012. This was supposed to mark the launch of the Intel Core i3 Ivy Bridge processors. However, it now appears Intel has delayed the Core i3 processor launch until Q4 2012. In fact, they also shifted 8 of the processors originally slated for the April launch to June. Apparently, they still have considerable stock of Sandy Bridge processors and would naturally prefer to trim that down before launching more Ivy Bridge processors. Let`s take a look at the details..."
