Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition Ivy Bridge-E CPU Review
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This most recent metamorphosis of the PC hasn't been kind to the high-end desktop processor segment. While the industry as a whole continues to focus on the steadily growing ultra-mobile market, and releases new products in rapid succession, there have only been two major flagship desktop processors released since the Intel Core i7-3960X hit the scene in late 2011-the slightly faster Intel Core i7-3970X and AMD's limited edition FX-9590. And even then, AMD's chip is most likely going to compete with Intel's more mainstream quad-core parts. We'll know exactly how it performs soon enough, when we complete our full evaluation of the FX-9590. Low-power parts that fit into small form factors may be all the rage right now, but today Intel advances the high-end desktop processor segment forward with the official unveiling of its Ivy Bridge-E microarchitecture and its associated products. The Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition processor is the flagship product in Intel's initial line-up of Ivy Bridge-E based parts and just so happens to be the processor we'll be showing you here today...

Intel Core i7 4960X Ivy Bridge E Review @ RWLabs
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ivy Bridge E is in many ways the same old same old we have seen from Intel over the last few launches. Ultimately we can chalk this up to a lack of competition from AMD, so what we get is a good processor that is only slightly better than the previous generation in terms of performance. Being an owner of an Intel 3960X myself I see no reason to upgrade from the previous generation, useless you are really concerned about the 20W difference in power consumption. From our experience most people that can afford a $1000 processor are not concerned about the power bill and with only marginal improvements on the performance front there is no reason to upgrade from Sandy Bridge E at this point.

Intel Core i7 4960X / 4930K / 4820K Ivy Bridge-E review: high-end naar 22nm
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you probably already know today Intel launched their new high-end processor series codenamed Ivy Bridge-E. We’ve tested all three new CPUs, the six-core Core i7 4960X, the six-core Core i7 4930K and the quad-core Core i7 4820K. We’ve compared the CPUs to 47 other Intel and AMD chips. The comparison between the 3970X and 4960X (old and new flagship) and the 4820K and 4770K (equally prices quad-cores in the Ivy Bridge-E and Haswell series) get special attention.

Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7-4960X IPC and OCing Review
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We debut Intel's next $1000 Extreme Desktop processor, the Core i7-4960X, this time with Ivy Bridge architecture and a couple of extra cores thrown in for good measure. It is a beast of a CPU for those that can actually harness its power and bandwidth, but how much better is it than Sandy Bridge-E and Haswell at the same clocks?

Not everyone needs a board built to push the limits of what is possible with up-to-date silicon, but I and many other enthusiasts most definitely do. Achieving records requires a special board, and ASUS`s MAXIMUS VI EXTREME is that board. Is it EXTREME?"

Intel Core i5-4430 CPU LGA1150 Haswell Processor Review
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel sends out press samples of their new CPUs, they generally provide the top-end desktop products like the Core i7-4470K. And it?s fun to have the latest new super-fast processor to play with. But most people don?t need this level of power, and indeed in many cases even enthusiasts won?t make full use of the capabilities of a high-end part. Given that, might a less expensive, mid-range CPU be a better choice? Benchmark Reviews tests the mid-range Intel Core i5-4430 CPU, desktop processor model BX80646I54430, to find out."

Ivy Bridge-E Review: New flagship, old flagship
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell has been out in the wild for 3 months now, while Sandy Bridge-E has remained Intel’s "ultimate" desktop platform for almost 2 years. However Intel is now ready for a refresh of its Extreme platform, but they won’t be skipping the Ivy Bridge architecture and moving straight to Haswell. Enter the Core i7-4960X which still features 6 cores, 12 threads, 15MB L3 cache, quad-channel DDR3 memory and is supported by the same aging X79 chipset. This doesn’t sound very exciting, so what’s new?

Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
e over, 22 months ago when we tested the first LGA2011 processor, the Core i7-3960X, we felt the platform was going to be somewhat of a tough sale given the featureless X79 chipset. Almost 2 years later Intel’s flagship desktop platform is powered by the same horribly outdated chipset, while the more cost effective Haswell platform is backed by a range of impressive 8 series chipsets, which includes the Z87.

AMDs Processor Shift: The Future Really is Fusion
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 10:29A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This transition will not be seamless, nor will it be smooth. AMD has to continue to convince users that their higher end offerings for AM3+ and C32/G34 are good enough to compete with Intel, all the while working on getting the APU above the $150 price point. Eventually at 20/22 nm AMD will have a four module (or more) APU available that will satisfy enthusiasts and power users alike, but that is some time off. Until then, AMD will stave off the competition by pushing Kaveri, keeping Kabini competitive, and keeping the royalties from the semi-custom group rolling in."

Intel Haswell Linux Performance Remains Mixed
     Wed, Sep 04 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summary: "Last month I published benchmarks showing Windows 8 beating Ubuntu Linux when it came to the Intel OpenGL performance for the latest generation Intel "Haswell" desktop processors. Since then there's been lots of commits to Mesa and continued improvements to the Linux kernel and for some tests the open-source Linux driver is in better standing. For the testing today is a comparison of Windows 8 Pro against the latest Ubuntu 13.10 development packages when using a System76 Gazelle Professional laptop with Core i7 4900MQ CPU."

Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition Processor
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 7:24A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Ivy Bridge-E CPU is based on the 22nm design which is quite funny since the mainstream part has already been to Ivy and now to Haswell while the high end part is just now getting to the 22nm Ivy Bridge. We find this kind of funny as normally you would think that the high end enthusiasts parts would be the first on a new die or new technology similar to the way ASUS always has the newest innovations on the ROG products and eventually those trickle down in select parts to the mainstream lineup. Here it is completely backward as Haswell has actually been out a few months now and just now we are seeing the extreme enthusiasts Ivy Bridge based model."

Intel i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 6:39A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember when everyone wanted Intels enthusiast CPUs? Pepperidge Farm remembers. With Ivy Bridge and then Haswell pushing the mainstream CPU lineup ahead quickly it seems like it has been ages sense the launch of X79 and with it Sandy Bridge-E. Thats not to say they still arent powerful, but with multiple competing launches from Intel alone the platform hasnt exactly gotten a lot of attention. Well today we get to play a little catch up with the introduction of the Ivy Bridge-E CPUs. Specifically Im going to take a look at the i7-4960X, their new flagship CPU. Lets take a peek at what is new."
