REVIEW: AMD A8-3870K @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jan 23 2012 | 9:38A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have our hands on AMD`s improved A-Series APU named the A8-3870K, which comes with an improved on-die GPU and an unlocked multiplier that should overclock even better. Hopefully these improvements will provide improved performance for the enthusiast looking to save some money."

Posted by: STAFF
Now that the Nouveau, Radeon, and LLVMpipe graphics drivers have been tested under Mesa 8.0, what is left? The Intel DRI driver, of course! The open-source Sandy Bridge Linux graphics support is shining with Mesa 8.0 thanks to OpenGL 3.0 support and measurable performance improvements. Intel Ivy Bridge is also ready to run under Linux."

Intel Core i7-3820 Quad-Core Sandy Bridge-E CPU Review
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks back, we took a look at the Core i7-3960X, Intel’s first desktop processor to feature the company’s Sandy Bridge-E microarchitecture. If you're unfamiliar with the chip, Sandy Bridge-E is the ‘tock’ in Intel’s tick-tock release schedule cadence that bridges the gap between first-gen Sandy Bridge-based processors and next year’s Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. Sandy Bridge-E shares many of the same features of the original Sandy Bridge microarchitecture, but as the “E” denotes, SBE is a more extreme derivative, targeted at enthusiasts. We briefly discussed the Core i7-3820 we’ll be showing you today in our Core i7-3960X coverage, but didn’t have a chip on hand for testing. The Core i7-3820 is based on the very same die as the higher-end Core i7-3960X, but two of its cores (and some cache) have been disabled...

AMD A8 3870K APU review
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the Lynx APU architecture, the AMD A8-3870K BE APU has unlocked multipliers, that means we can not only boost the processor performance a bit, but also the internal GPU. Now the performance and overclocks will by far not be as grand as say the Phenom II / FX processors show, but every bit helps of course. And for just a few EUR more we could see an increase in performance of up-to a third.

The 3870K is certainly a nice addition to the Llano lineup
     Wed, Jan 18 2012 | 6:14P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 3870K is certainly a nice addition to the Llano lineup. Unlocking the GPU multiplier allows, at least in some graphics applications, a healthy boost in performance but the gains heavily depend on the specific application. In a way, the lack of performance increase is an interesting testimonial to the efficiency of platform integration AMD has achieved with Llano, in that the bottlenecks are so evenly distributed that boosting the performance of a single component doesn’t impact overall performance too much. Instead, at least both the memory and the GPU need to be ramped up in order to achieve any significant improvement. Tuning of other parameters like NClk becomes pretty much a moot point because it is dependent on the memClk already and any further boost in frequency will go largely unnoticed. What was concerning about the “K-factor” was the more or less complete ignorance of the Gigabyte BIOS with respect to what makes sense and what settings are essentially just eye-candy without any functional relevance. The only light in this muck is the fact that in the latest revision the NClk setting has been abandoned – which makes perfectly sense in view of the dependencies and the fact that NClk frequency trailing of the memClk is mandatory and cannot be overridden to a lower NClk. Along these lines, it would also be nice to have a default BIOS setting that allows Dual Graphics without wading through all pages of the award BIOS to find the relevant setting hidden at the bottom of the Advanced BIOS Settings. The take-home message is that any platform can only be as good as its implementation by the industry partners and it looks as if there is a lot of work left to be done.

AMD A8-3850 Llano APU and Lynx Platform Preview
     Thu, Jan 12 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks back, we took a look at AMD's Llano mobile platform and we came away impressed. In the mobile space, Llano offers a capable quad-core CPU, with excellent DX11-class integrated graphics, in a very low power-envelope. Those things translate into good performance and solid battery life in a notebook, two highly desirable traits of mobile system. AMD is now ready with Llano-based products for the desktop. On the desktop, Llano offers similar things. In fact, the underlying technology is identical. But the desktop landscape is very different. Desktops aren't constrained by the limited form-factors and thermal requirements of mobile systems, and as such, Llano has to compete with a much broader range of options. AMD thinks they have struck the right balance between CPU and GPU performance though, and at some very budget-friendly price points. Ultimately, consumers will decide if AMD is on target. In the meantime, we've got the first AMD Llano-based desktop APU, the A8-3850, in the lab, complete with a quartet of A75-chipset based motherboards...

ARM VP Responds to Partnerships with AMD at Fusion Developer Summit:
     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.
