Intel Core i5-2405S Processor Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 6:45P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What do you call a processor that is ten months late, uses a lot of power, and overpromises in performance but underdelivers in practice? Now it would be kind of mean to point fingers and name names here, but I promise you it is not Sandy Bridge. Earlier this year, we have reviewed a couple of Intel`s second generation Core CPUs, including the Intel Core i5-2500K and Core i3-2120 -- with both living up to everything every enthusiast raves about over and over again pretty much everywhere you go. It is simply unquestionable that these processors are superior to its predecessors and the competition in almost every way -- whether it is performance, power consumption, bang for your buck, and at least for the enthusiast oriented K-series, overclocking. With that in mind, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is yet another Sandy Bridge core CPU for review. While the Intel Core i5-2405S is not designed for overclocking (It is unfortunate it comes with a locked multiplier and a base clock you can`t play around with), the little `s` at the end of its name means there is one thing that it focuses on: Reduced TDP from 95W to 65W. Actually, before we begin, let me just clarify on one thing first. The difference between the Core i5-2400s and 2405S is the 2405S comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000 rather than 2000. Are we all good? Let`s waste no time for the details."

Intel - It Was One Heck Of A Year For Sandy Bridge Graphics
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 6:36A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The year began with Intel launching their Sandy Bridge processors. While the CPU performance was very impressive for these latest-generation Intel processors, the graphics performance under Linux was a problem. The drivers were not ready in time. Well, they actually were technically available, but in Git source form and not easy for Linux desktop customers. There were also some initial hurdles in the Sandy Bridge Linux graphics support. However, over the past year, the Intel OSTC developers working on the open-source graphics support have dramatically improved the situation. As this article recaps the performance over the past year, Sandy Bridge is now rocking under Linux and Ivy Bridge is ready to go."

CPU Performance Comparison Guide Rev. 6.4
     Fri, Dec 09 2011 | 3:56P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This article compiles the best benchmark results we collected of various CPU models using x264 HD Benchmark 4.0, a free CPU benchmark developed by graysky, Dashken and Adrian Wong. This CPU performance comparison guide currently covers 120 different CPU models plus another 283 CPUs in the older comparison but this is just the beginning. We will keep updating the results as new results come in, so please contribute your results. If you would like to participate in this endeavor, head over to the x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 page and download a copy. After you obtain your benchmark results, simply post them in the official forum thread of x264 HD Benchmark 4.0. Please post your results even if your processor is already listed in the comparison. This is because we will use your results if they are better than the results currently listed in the comparison. Here is the list of updates : - Added the Intel Core i7-3960X desktop processor. - Added the AMD FX-8130P workstation processor (overclocked to 4.6 GHz). - Added the AMD FX-8130P workstation processor. - Added the AMD FX-8150 workstation processor. - Added the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T desktop processor (overclocked to 3.37 GHz). - Added the Intel Xeon X3350 workstation processor. - Added the Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 desktop processor. - Added the AMD Sempron 3000+ desktop processor."

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Review @ Neoseeker
     Tue, Nov 29 2011 | 7:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD today introduces the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition, its new quad-core flagship CPU that still uses the aging Deneb CPU architecture. Yet it`s AMD fastest stock quad-core yet at 3.7GHz, while retaining at 125W TDP, all for $195 USD. It`s similar in price to quite a few dual- and quad-core CPU offerings from rival Intel, so hit our review to see if the new Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition manages to stay competitive at this price range."

Everything You Need to Know About the HyperTransport Bus @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 9:19A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Current AMD processors have two external busses. One is used on the communication between the CPU and the memory, and it is simply called memory bus. The other is used on the communication between the CPU and all other PC components through the motherboard chipset and is called HyperTransport ? an I/O (Input/Output) bus. In this tutorial, we will be explaining how the HyperTransport bus works and clarifying common mistakes people assume about this bus."

Intel Core i7 3930K (LGA 2011) CPU Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Sandy Bridge-E platform from Intel really is a different kind of beast. When you throw it through those CPU intensive benchmarks, the performance of the new i7 3960X is amazing with performance at stock being better at times than when our 2600k is running at 5.2GHz. The issue with the 3960X isn`t the performance, though; it`s the price. At $1,049 US, there`s nothing cheap about the new 3960X and when you start to throw in a new X79 performance motherboard and a Quad Channel RAM kit, the price of a new Sandy Bridge-E system becomes really expensive. In steps the 3930K, 100MHz lower on both the Base and Turbo clocks and 3MB less Cache are only minor differences. Six cores and Twelve threads means that it lines up with the 3960X alongside the Quad Channel 1600MHz DDR3 RAM support and 130W TDP. There`s one big difference between the 3960X and the 3930K, though; the price. At $599 US the 3930K comes in at considerably less than the 3960X, and really, you can see we`ve otherwise got little difference between the two models."

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.
