AMD A10-7850K 'Kaveri' review: AMD's new APU
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 4:21P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We reviewed AMD’s new A10-7850K Kaveri APU. We ran many different benchmarks, including games for testing the integrated graphics, and compared the performance of the Steamroller CPU cores with that of the previous generation Bulldozer CPU cores. It turns out that faster RAM has a big impact on performance, so it’s clear that the - largely unchanged - memory controller has become a performance bottleneck.

AMD Kaveri APU Architecture Overview
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 11:13A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today marks the release of the latest in a long line of AMD Accelerated Processing Units. Benchmark Reviews has been there for each one of the previous APU releases, and we would be remiss if we didn`t provide you with the latest news regarding this release. It has been a long road since Llano, the very first generation of AMD APUs, was announced just three short years ago at CES 2011. That processor brought together AMD?s long held vision of putting a discrete level GPU on the same die as the CPU; a vision that started back with the Fusion project and AMD?s acquisition of ATI."

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri: The Linux Introduction
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This morning AMD is releasing the first APUs in their Kaveri family, their most advanced APU ever with up to 12 compute cores and is a big push forward with their overall HSA architecture. We managed to get our hands on a Kaveri system with A10-7850K APU and in the days/weeks ahead there will be many Linux benchmarks looking at the next-generation AMD APU. Here`s what Linux users need to know right now about AMD Kaveri APU Linux support."

AMD A8-7600 Kaveri APU Review - HSA Arrives
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:16A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GPU performance will also lead to advantages in other application areas that utilize those compute cores effectively. OpenCL is one such area and software developers continue to adapt and create software using it (including major vendors like Adobe and Microsoft). Our PCMark 8 v2.0 and Basemark CL results attempt to measure the capabilities of these processors and the results show that the GPU advantage AMD enjoys pays big dividends."

News: AMDs A8-7600 Kaveri processor reviewed
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s next-generation APU packs in a ton of innovation, including updated Steamroller CPU cores, GCN graphics, and advanced HSA features. But is it enough to restore AMD`s competitiveness in desktop processors?"

AMD A8 7600 Kaveri APU review
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 7:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the new Kaveri APU from AMD. Today`s released A8 and A10 APUs are now 100% heterogeneous, meaning that all segments in the APU like the processor, cache and GPU have truly merged. Next to that the IGP inside the APU has been upgraded towards GCN architecture. In this first article we`ll look at the A8-7600 APU from AMD. Kaveri will aim at several segments in the processor business like notebooks, desktops, embedded and even server solutions. Armed bit a good 2.41 Billion transistors and based on a 28nm fabrication process, let`s have a look at what Kaveri can do."

AMD Kaveri A10 7850K & A8 7600 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 7:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s Kaveri is finally here and we look at the A10-7850K & A8-7600. With IPC improvements, Steamroller x86 cores and a GCN-based graphics processor, this may be the one we`ve been waiting for. "

Intel reportedly places 28nm chip orders with TSMC
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 5:19P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has contracted Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) to manufacture its forthcoming Atom mobile processor series codenamed SoFIA, and also placed orders for entry-level baseband chips with Globalfoundries and United Microelectronics (UMC), according to industry sources.

AMD FX-9590 and FX-9370 review: AMD's return to the high-end market?
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's certainly a courageous step to release new CPUs with a TDP of 220 watts, but it's not enough to really compete with Intel's Core i7. Even the 5 GHz FX-9590 is somewhat slower than the Core i7 4770K, even in multi-threaded benchmarks such as Cinebench and x264. The 4770K costs about the same, is much faster with games and only uses a fraction of the power.

     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 2:30P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over time CPU manufacturers like Intel and AMD release numerous processors and it is very likely to lose track of all the models out there. Furthermore it is difficult to find complete comparison tables where you find all CPUs and their features listed. Following you find such a list regarding AMD`s APU processors."

Intel Core i7-4770K vs AMD A10-6800K IGP - Any good for Gaming? @ ocaholic
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 10:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few years, Intel and AMD have spent a lot of resources in improving the performance of their integrated graphics units. Intel has been working hard to make sure their HD graphics becomes competitive with AMDs Radeon units. Today we`re going to compare the HD 4600 graphics unit we find with Intels latest Core i7-4770K CPU to AMDs HD 8670D, that can be found in their A10-6800K APU. Next to the raw performance differences we also want to know if these chips can - under certain circumstances - be used for gaming."

News: AMD could counter Nvidias G-Sync with simpler free sync tech
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 1:20A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During an impromptu meeting in a hotel ballroom this morning, we got an eye-opening demo of a dynamic refresh rate capability that`s been a part of Radeon GPUs for several generations. AMD thinks this feature can be combined with triple buffering to deliver G-Sync-like animation smoothness without the cost associated with specialized display hardware."
