AMD Phenom II X4 975 & 840
     Mon, Mar 21 2011 | 6:12P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When it came to overclocking, the X4 840 has a locked multiplier and did not offer much in the way of overclocking, with only a 400MHz burst. That being said, for the price, they are hard to beat. The X4 975, on the other hand, is an overclocking beast, making it to 4.32GHz with ease thanks to the unlocked multiplier and a bit of tweaking. At 4.3GHz and a price tag under $200, this chip is also hard to be beat - the scores were excellent and the chip never faltered."

Intel Core i7 990X
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 3:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About one year after the Core i7 980X was the first hexa-core Intel processor for the desktop market, the Core i7 990X now replaces it as the top end model. Still based on the “Westmere” platform with X58 chupset and socket 1366, it is challenged by Intel’s own “Sandy Bridge” platform.

AMD Phenom II X4 840 CPU Review
     Fri, Mar 18 2011 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With an MSRP of just $102, the new AMD Phenom II X4 840 CPU is one of the cheapest quad-core CPUs on the market. Value for money is usually a given with AMD CPUs, but can this processor push the envelope when it comes to budget performance?"

13 Line Patch That Boosts Intel Sandy Bridge Performance
     Sat, Mar 12 2011 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After some initial Linux troubles, last month we finally got Intel Sandy Bridge graphics working under Linux. The latest Intel CPUs (such as the Core i5 2500K) with integrated graphics are blazingly fast, and the classic Intel Mesa driver was fast compared to other open-source Mesa / Gallium3D drivers, but it still was a ways behind the low-end discrete graphics cards with the proprietary AMD / NVIDIA drivers for Linux. It was also shown that the Intel Linux Mesa driver is much slower than the Intel Windows driver for Sandy Bridge, as we had also found was the case for previous generations of Intel graphics. Committed to the Mesa mainline Git repository this week though was a very important Sandy Bridge change. While the commit only touched 13 lines of code (11 lines of new code, 2 lines of changed code), it has dramatically improved the Sandy Bridge Linux performance as our results show in this article."

AMD E-350 Accelerated Processor
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Those who thought the Brazos platform would be revolutionary might be disappointed because it's not. The new solution is, without a doubt, slightly faster than Pine Trail, but it belongs to the same class in terms of processor performance. Neither solution can compete with three-year-old low-end desktop processors."

Intel's Core i7 990X Extreme Edition Tested, Burned-in
     Mon, Mar 07 2011 | 1:45P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel recently launched a speed bump of their flagship Extreme Edition Core i7 processor, known as the Core i7 990X. It's unlocked and clocked at 3.45GHz stock speed with a Turbo Boost top-end speed of 3.73GHz. Intel claims its the fastest desktop chip on the planet; like geek tiger blood for your PC. The new Core i7-990X is also based on the 32nm Gulftown core and the performance metrics show it's easily the fastest 6-core chip for the desktop currently but of course it'll cost you as well. What do you do when you're the fastest thing around? You just keep on WINNING. It's as if there was tiger blood coursing through your veins. You're so good, you're bi-winning. Heck, with a six core processor at your disposal, you'd be hexa-winning. Ol' Charlie needs one of these things to go with his rock-star life style...

Intel Sandy Bridge VA-API Video Acceleration Performance
     Mon, Mar 07 2011 | 1:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There have been a number of Intel Sandy Bridge articles on Phoronix since the January launch of this next-generation Intel CPU micro-architecture. It's ranged from the Linux support being challenging to dealing with motherboard problems and then the graphics performance being fast relative to previous generations of Intel graphics and for being based upon the classic Mesa driver architecture, but much slower than Windows. Last week then the Sandy Bridge Linux performance became much more interesting after a simple patch led to a huge performance win to the point that the open-source Linux driver performance is much closer to their full-featured Microsoft Windows driver. What is the next chapter in the Intel Sandy Bridge Linux story? A look at the VA-API video acceleration playback performance."

Intel Core i5-2500K Processor Review
     Fri, Mar 04 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have a little song we sing here at APH Networks. It goes along with the tune of Taio Cruz's Dynamite radio hit that plays every five minutes on every North American popular music station. "I put my foot down to the floor sometimes / Saying VTEC / Just kicked in yo. / I want to mount my laser jammers on / Saying VTEC / Just kicked in yo." (Which replaces the chorus, "I throw my hands up in the air sometimes...") I put my foot down to the floor sometimes. If you look at the products Intel has been spewing out to the mainstream and enthusiast markets in the past five years or so, "foot to the floor" is a pretty good description with regards to the incredible performance you are getting for the money, as compared to computer equipment in general, say, just ten years ago. When we reviewed the Intel Core i5-750 quad core desktop processor last year, its performance easily eclipsed the king of the hill $1000 Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 released just a couple of years before. For $200. More than a year after the release of Lynnfield Core i5 and i7 processors, Intel is back again with their latest release of code named "Sandy Bridge" processors. The bad news is that the traditional overclocking method by raising the processor's base clock does not work with second generation Core CPUs, because the new CPUs use a single clock generator controlling the speed of all electrical buses. The good news is, if you are willing to pay an extra $10 and give up business oriented features such as Intel TXT and Intel VT-d, the company will happily sell you a K edition processor with an unlocked multiplier up to 57x. With your mom, your uncle, your next door neighbor and just about everyone else hitting at least 4.5GHz for some Core i7-980X smoking performance (Well, and two less cores, but how many do you really need anyway?) at a fraction of the price, my advice to you is to get your credit card out and ready right about... now. Possibly your car keys, if you are going retail. Still not convinced? That's okay. We have eleven pages of geek talk coming up for you next. Actually, just a slight update since I wrote everything before this sentence prior January 31st, you might just need to wait a bit on Intel's now infamous P67 bug, since you can't buy any LGA 1155 boards right now.

further details on the Bulldozer architecture
     Thu, Mar 03 2011 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"All indications so far point to Bulldozer being at the very least a competitive design. I believe that Intel will have an advantage in instructions per clock when handling single threaded and lightly threaded workloads. But AMD certainly looks to counter that by providing processors which will clock higher than the Intel counterparts, yet still remain in the same thermal envelope as the competition."

Intel Celeron Dual Core E3300 CPU
     Wed, Mar 02 2011 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost by accident, I was recently shopping online and found the Intel E3300 45nm Dual-Core Celeron processor. Looking at the E3300 SLGU4 specifications, I noticed that it offers 1Mb of Level 2 cache and an impressive 2.5Ghz clock speed. Since this Intel Socket 775 CPU uses Core 2 Duo technology that means it can overclock and will outperform many other Celeron models on the market today. Keep reading to find out more..."

AMD Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition
     Wed, Mar 02 2011 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been three months since we reviewed the latest Phenom II quad-core processor from AMD, the 970 Black Edition. With the start of a new year comes the latest quad-core from AMD, the Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition. The 975 is essentially a higher clocked Deneb CPU. The 975 BE clocks in at 3.6GHz, just 100MHz above the previous 970 BE. The designation 'Black Edition' means that the CPU comes with an unlocked multiplier for overclocking goodness. A sub-$200 price puts this within the reach of most buyers. Continue reading to see how the slight bump in speed compares to the previous iteration in the quad-core Phenom II lineup.
