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."

Ivy Bridge-E: Intel Core i7-4960X Processor Review
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 4:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Moving the microarchitecture from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge results in a modest performance gain in terms of IPC and the clock speed increase of about 100 MHz (or 0 MHz if you count the later released Core i7-3970X part) left us with performance gains of 3-13%. Considering that SNB-E was already considered the highest performance system you could buy (for multi-threaded content), if you can gain another 10% on that in select workloads then you have an easy win."

Posted by: STAFF
With Ivy Bridge-E, Intel is sending a new high-end desktop CPU into the race for the fastet CPU, a desktop users money can buy. Based on the Ivy Bridge architecture and with a turbo clock of 4.0 GHz this CPU is trying to convince potential customers, that it is upgrade time. Is Intel really going to succeed?"

Intel Core i7 4820K and 4960X processor reviews
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 3:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this review we test the new four-core Core i7 4820K Ivy Bridge-E (IBE) processor. This is the only quad-core IBE processor that Intel will release. But it is unlocked and as such direct competition for the Core i7 4770K. That alone is interesting as X79 as a platform offers more PCIe lanes. But how well will this processor fare against Intel`s own pride and joy the 4770K ? let`s go check it out."

Intel i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 3:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s i7-4960X Ivy Bridge Extreme is billed as the fastest processor available. With a dozen threads and a clock speed of 4GHz, it has the capability to outshine its predecessors but at $1000, it has a lot to live up to. "

Intel Core i7 4960X Review
     Tue, Sep 03 2013 | 2:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking on the Core i7 4960X was bit of a disappointment after pushing to over 4.7GHz on the Core i7 3960X Sandy Bridge Extreme with a core clock of only 4.44GHz possible on this chip fully Prime 95 stable. At 4.44GHz I had to push 1.42v through it to gain stability. A push to 4500MHz needed another boost in vcore that really was too high for daily use on Intel`s 22nm architecture long term. It could be just my sample and is hopefully not the norm or average for the 4960X."

Upgrading from Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to Core i7-4770K @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 9:50A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all love doing computer upgrades, but sometimes we have to ask ourselves if a full system upgrade is worth it or necessary. There are times that you may only gain a small percentage of a performance boost, where there are other times that you gain significant increases. Today I am going to compare my original Intel Kentsfield CPU and X38 motherboard to a shiny new Haswell CPU and Z87 motherboard."

AMD Richland A10-6800K Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Aug 29 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD have taken the gaming world more seriously of late, evident with the `Gaming Evolved` campaign being ever present in many recent PC titles as well as now having their APU technology being utilised in the coming next generation gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. Though these are earmarks for the success of the APU, the continually increasing demand in desktop performance gives rise to the latest 6000 series refresh for the FM2 platform. Though the names (or numbers) have changed as well as the new `Elite` branding for their top tier products, the A10-6800K is essentially a higher clocked, cherry picked, `Trinity` chip. The core speed is up to 4.1GHz/ 4.4GHz compared to the 3.8GHz - 4.1GHz of the A10-5800K and the GPU core clock has been increased to 844MHz from 800MHz. Another noticeable change is that 2133MHz memory is now `officially` supported."

AMD updates product roadmap for 2014
     Tue, Aug 27 2013 | 1:30P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kabini-based APUs for desktop applications were originally scheduled to release in the second half of 2013, but have now been rescheduled for March 2014. Kabini's successor, Beema, will also be rescheduled for launch in the second half of 2014 or the first half of 2015, adopting the FS1B socket and Heterogeneous Systems Architecture (HSA).

AMD's FM1 and AM3 sockets will start phasing out in mid-2013 and the end of 2013, respectively. By the end of 2013, Socket AM3+ processors will account for 30% of AMD's total processor shipments, while Socket FM2-based processors will account for the remaining 70%."
