     Thu, Jan 12 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Fusion Developer Conference is continuing to offer up tidbits of interesting insight from a few top industry professionals. Execs from Microsoft and ARM have given talks on a number of broad industry initiatives, including support for new programming language technologies like C++ AMP and Open CL. In a small round-table discussion with Industry Analyst John Peddie, the seemingly hard-ball question was asked "what is ARM doing here at this AMD conference?" Jem Davies, VP of the Media Processing Division of ARM stepped up to the plate casually to take a swing. It appears as if ARM has their hooks in all over the place.

Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review - Quad-Core Sandy Bridge-E under $300
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:36A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those debating between the Core i7-3820 and the Core i7-2700K then have to decide if the added memory support and additional PCIe bandwidth are worth the added cost. If you are a heavy multi-GPU user then that might be the case, otherwise we are kind of at a standstill. Motherboards based on the Z68 platform available now should be able to support Ivy Bridge in the coming months but in truth we don`t expect the processor portion of that upgrade to be particularly noteworthy - only the GPU side of the processor will see significant jumps. On the other hand, Ivy Bridge-E may or may not even actually use the LGA2011 socket, as Intel hasn`t confirmed, though all indicators show that it will."

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.
