Intel Ivy Bridge 3770K to Intel Broadwell 5775C
     Wed, Jul 22 2015 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2012 we built a custom mini-ITX gaming PC that featured an Intel Ivy Bridge processor, Intel Z77 motherboard, NVIDIA Kepler GPU, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and water cooling. The original build cost on our system in 2012 was $2600, so it was a high-end build using some of the best components available at the time. We’ve racked up nearly 16,000 hours and have written 230 Terabytes of data to the original Kingston HyperX 5K 480GB SSD over the years. Despite the system still performing exceptionally well we have been wanting to update it now that faster more power efficient processors are available. The Intel Core i7-3770K ‘Ivy Bridge’ quad-core processor is still a very capable CPU today, but it does show signs of weakness in certain tasks...

Intel Core i7 5775C: Once Going, This Broadwell CPU Is Great On Linux
     Wed, Jul 22 2015 | 1:13P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the past few weeks I've been testing out the Core i7 5775C on Linux as mentioned in a few posts up to this point. While there were some initial headaches on getting this socketed Broadwell CPU playing nicely under Linux, once working around those problems, this processor is great on Linux. With its Iris Pro Graphics 6200 is able to serve as a compelling choice for those who want a powerful open-source system."

Core i7-5820K vs i7-4960X Gaming-Performance
     Tue, Jul 21 2015 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released their new Haswell-E CPUs, we decided to rework our CPU gaming performance articles. Meanwhile we're testing different resolutions and there are FullHD, 1440p as well as UHD on our list. This way you get a more detailed understanding of the differences. Today we compare the Core i7-5820K to the old generation Ivy Bridge-E Core i7-4960X at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5GHz and we're curious see how big the differences are.

AMD Fiji, HBM and product ‘rebadging’
     Tue, Jul 21 2015 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been some time since AMD were able to punch Intel on the chin at product launch — and this year Nvidia have been left to dominate the graphics industry. Their Nvidia’s GTX980, GTX980 Ti and Titan X simply have no competition whatever way you look at it. The bad news is that without serious competition both Intel and Nvidia have been able to charge whatever they feel like for many of their products. There is a silver lining in sight – AMD are set to release new graphics hardware in the coming weeks. We all hope they will have a answer to Maxwell, but what will happen?

AMD's Fiji GPU
     Sun, Jul 19 2015 | 8:04P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The air-cooled version of AMD's Fiji GPU is here in the form of the Radeon R9 Fury. We go inside the second with the Asus version of this card, the Strix R9 Fury. We also finally get a look at R9 390 and 390X cards from XFX and Asus, respectively, that round out AMD's refreshed lineup of high-end Radeons.

Intel Core i7-5775C @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 19 2015 | 8:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of you following what Intel has been up to, they officially announced their Broadwell based CPUs at Computex this year. Last year we did see a Broadwell based Core-M CPU come out for some ultrbooks but beyond that everyone has been waiting to see what they would have to offer for desktops and normal laptops. Well coverage has been trickling out and you can expect to see CPUs finding their way into stores soon as well. Today I’m going to take a look at the Core i7-5775C, Intel’s flagship desktop model. You will also notice their isn’t a new chipset launch to go with this one as these 14nm Broadwell CPUs run on the same 9 Series Intel chipset that the Haswell based CPUs ran on.

Intel Core i7-5775C Broadwell Processor Review
     Sat, Jul 18 2015 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We managed to get our hands on an Intel Core i7-5775C processor and have spent the past week using and benchmarking the newest desktop processor from Intel. This processor idles at 800 MHz when your system is not being used and then can run at up to 3700 MHz depending on the workload you are doing. The Intel Core i7-5775C is just a 65W TDP processor thanks to having mobile roots. This is a far cry from the 84W TDP seen on the Intel Core i7-4790K processor, but keep in mind it tops out at 3700MHz and not 4400MHz! Read on to see how it performs!

Intel Celeron N3050 & Pentium N3700 Review
     Fri, Jul 17 2015 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's new Braswell SoCs promise to be faster across the board while also consuming less power than Bay Trail. The new chips are manufactured using Intel's 14nm process and include the mobile Celeron N3000, N3050, N3150, and Pentium N3700. The last three are meant for desktop systems and today we have the N3050 and N3700 in hand for testing.

Intel Core i7-5775C CPU Review
     Wed, Jul 15 2015 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Broadwell is the 14nm die shrink of Haswell, bringing a smaller die and lower power consumption. As is often the case with Intel’s ‘Tick’ updates, a few minor tweaks have also been applied, while remaining on the existing LGA1150 platform. Today we have the flagship model on hand, the Core i7-5775C, and its BGA version, the Core i7-5775R. Both are nearly identical save for the price and a slightly higher Turbo frequency on the BGA model.

AMD A10-7870K Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux
     Wed, Jul 15 2015 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Two weeks ago AMD launched the A10-7870K "Godavari" APU. As there haven't been too many independent benchmarks of the A10-7870K yet, this week I picked up the new high-end APU and have been running a plethora of performance tests under Ubuntu Linux. Here's the first batch of the AMD A10-7870K Linux tests."

AMD A8 7650K APU Review – The Little APU That Could!
     Sat, Jul 04 2015 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Oftentimes we will get people asking us about building a gaming PC on a budget, with the ability to upgrade in the future. Well today we will be bringing you our AMD A8 7650K review, which is priced aggressively and certainly packs a punch. This APU can be used in a variety of ways, like a low budget gaming PC with room for upgrades, a HTPC, heck even cheap work stations aren’t out of the realm of possibility, but before we make any bold claims lets take a look at its performance.

Intel Core M 5Y70 Broadwell-Y Benchmarked At IDF 2014
     Mon, Jun 29 2015 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has officially revealed the Core M processors, the first fifth-generation Core processors that use the ‘Broadwell-Y’ microarchitecture. We’ve told you about Broadwell-Y before, but we’ve never been allowed to see detailed performance numbers, let alone run benchmarks ourselves on the reference platform. That all changed today when we were able to run benchmarks on the Llama Mountain reference tablet that was powered by the Intel Core M-5Y70 Broadwell-Y Processor!

AMD's Carpe Verde Pro GPU
     Sun, Jun 28 2015 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the Neoseeker review bench today is another sub-$100 graphics card built around AMD's Carpe Verde Pro GPU, the XFX R7 250E Core Edition. As you will have gathered from the pricing, it's intended to provide competitive performance for users on a budget with a compact form fact to boot. See how it fares against similarly priced cards.

Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme Edition
     Thu, Jun 18 2015 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some times ago Intel has announced the new generation CPUs for high performance and high sophisticated PCs. This is Haswell-E. Thanks to it a performance-hungry enthusiasts get the new processor microarchitecture, DDR4 support and eight cores in one chip. Also the platform and processor socket are changing. We take a look at all these essential transformations.

Intel Launches Xeon E7-8800 and E7-4800 v3 Processor Families
     Thu, Jun 11 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has refreshed its line-up of processors in a number of categories over the last few months. Late last year, Intel’s current flagship desktop processors based on Haswell-E arrived, followed shortly thereafter by the low-power Core M series for ultra-mobile devices, and then 5th Generation Core processors for notebooks and all-in-ones. Intel has made some noise in some other markets as well in the same time period—see here for an example of a killer SSD—but today the company officially takes the wraps off of its latest processors for mission-critical enterprise server and pro workstation applications, the Xeon E7-8800 / 4800 v3...
