Intel Core i7-3820 Review: Sandy Bridge-E for the masses
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 3:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last year when we reviewed the new Sandy Bridge-E processors, we mentioned a more affordable version called the Core i7-3820 was coming. Although information about the chip had been revealed, the processor has yet to hit shelves and is now expected to arrive later in February. Fortunately, sample units are being passed around ahead of general availability, so we don't have to wait to see how it stacks up. The i7-3820 is particularly intriguing because of its sub-$300 retail price -- far less than other chips in the series. For instance, the Core i7-3960X has an MSRP of $999 and sells for more like $1,049, while the i7-3930K has an MSRP of $583 and is fetching $599 at e-tail. Both are six-core CPUs operating over 3GHz with massive 15MB and 12MB L3 caches. At roughly half the price of the 3930K, we expected Intel to butcher the i7-3820, and while that's partially true, the 3820 remains an impressive specimen with four cores operating at 3.6GHz, a 10MB L3 cache and HyperThreading support. Compared to the similarly priced i7-2600K, the 3820 offers additional L3 cache, support for PCI Express 3.0, quad-channel memory and a platform that will take as much as 32GB of system memory.

Intel`s high-end LGA2011 platform has been out since November 2011 and since the platforms introduction there have only been two SNB-E processor choices available, the six-core Intel Core i7-3960X and Core i7-3930K.

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano APU Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:39A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being the newest and highest-end addition to AMD?s A-series APU lineup, not only does the A8-3870K feature the much raved about integrated Radeon HD 6550D, but it comes with fully unlocked multipliers for both the CPU and GPU portions. This ensures that it will be easier than ever to extract every bit of additional performance from this budget-oriented Fusion-based processor. "

David vs Goliath: Can AMD Stand and Fight? @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 11:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop computing is beginning to see its territories being conquered piece by piece. Over the last few years a new realm has risen from the sand and it is called mobile computing. At first this realm struggled due to the lack of acceptance, which was mainly based on the price paid to acquire such technology. Over the last two years we have seen these mobile realms gain acceptance due to the fact that many of the well-established desktop realms are moving forward to conquer new lands. The desktop realms that have made the move are beginning to see rewards while those who have not are beginning to suffer as their land becomes devoured.///"

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0 GHz Quad Core APU Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Jan 30 2012 | 4:45P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The A8-3870K APU is the latest release from AMD. The A8-3870K offers quad core performance with 3.0GHz speed. This Llano APU comes with a 100MHz speed bump over the A8-3850, so the stock performance won`t differ tremendously. The key difference, however, is the unlocked multiplier. The unlocked multiplier offers easier overclocking as seen with AMD`s other Black Edition processors. All prior Llano APUs have locked multipliers, therefore overclocking requires more trouble. All of the same features seen on the A8-3850 are seen on the A8-3870K. The Radeon 6550D has been integrated, which offers 400 shader units and runs at 600MHz. This is the best Radeon that can be attained on a Llano APU. There is still support for dual graphics as well as memory up to 1866MHz.///"

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.
