AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition
     Wed, May 04 2011 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD released Deneb-core based AMD Phenoms in january 2009. Alot has happened since then in processor markets; frequencies have increased and more cores available in some processors. Even though AMD has Thuban-core based hexacore processors available, the quadcore Denebs are still sold quite a bit. Today we will take a closer look at their newest quadcore processor called AMD Phenom II X4 975. Let's have a look how it performs in our tests.

Intel Core i3-2100 Processor
     Wed, May 04 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Processors like Core i3-2100 are in their right places in terms of both price and performance. In due time, we liked the Core i3-500 lineup very much. Now we like the Core i3-2000 one even more. We wish was bigger, however. But the noticeable price gap between Core i3-2120 and Core i3-2300 gives us hope that it may be expanded. Let's hope those new solutions will be as good."

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Quad-Core CPU Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:26P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While the AMD Phenom II X4 980 wasn't the fastest processor that we had on our bench today, it did everything we asked to without hesitation and did it well. AMD has taken the 'Deneb' core architecture and stretched it out as far as they could. We wouldn't be shocked if the AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition isn't the very last speed bump for this generation of processors. This core was well designed as we showed you that the 980 BE was able to hit 4.5GHz in our overclocking section, which was a clock frequency that we could reach on the very first Deneb revisions back in 2009."

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new AMD Phenom II X4 980 processor is pushing the “Deneb” architecture even closer to its limits, with a standard operating frequency of 3.7GHz. Of course while it is nice to see AMD pushing their processors even further, essentially what we have here is nothing new, rather this is just a product refresh.

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition processor
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in January, we were absolutely convinced that we had seen the last hurrah for the venerable quad-core 45nm 'Deneb' die when we reviewed the Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition processor. However, apparently we were wrong as AMD is now releasing the X4 980 Black Edition; a processor sporting an impressive 3.7Ghz core speed. But can it compete against Intel's Sandy Bridge platform?

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition CPU Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 5:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although much of the scuttlebutt lately has revolved around AMD’s upcoming Llano and Bulldozer-based APUs, the company isn’t done pushing the envelope with their existing processor designs. In case you haven’t noticed, over the last few months AMD has continued to ramp up frequencies on their current bread-and-butter Phenom II processor line-up to the point where they’re now flirting with the 4GHz mark. We should also point out that AMD has done so with little disruption to their relatively low pricing structure; as a newer, faster processor is released in a given product family, it occupies the historic top spot while the existing products have simply been pushed down the stack to lower price points. Maybe we’re being a bit optimistic, but today’s launch of the Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition marks the release of AMD’s highest clocked processor yet, technically speaking. While the six-core Phenom II X6 1100T can Turbo up to 3.7GHz on half of its cores under certain conditions, the new quad-core Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition’s default clock on all four of its cores is 3.7GHz...

Intel I7-2600K Sandybridge Processor Review
     Tue, May 03 2011 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After several weeks testing and trying out Intel's Core i7-2600k Sandybridge processor, there isn't a whole lot to say other than it's relatively cheap, it's fast and it's extremely overclockable. When a processor comes in just over US$300 and is this fast, NO ONE can complain

AMD Brazos Platform
     Mon, May 02 2011 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three years ago Intel created a trend by launching a feature reduced product named Atom and was very successful in this segment. AMD now targets the gap between the Atom systems and classic PC systems with the launch of the Brazos platform. As the first fusion processor, it is especially interesting to look at performance, energy consumption and usability.

Posted by: STAFF
It's been several weeks since Asus announced that certain socket AM3 motherboards would support AMD's upcoming Bulldozer processors. Since then, we've turned up additional rumors on the nature of such support. MSI has also announced its own plans to retrofit some existing AM3 boards with Bulldozer compatibility. What follows is the general shape of the situation as we currently understand it...

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.
