Questions of Compatibility: AMD, AM3, and Bulldozer
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:40P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been several weeks since Asus announced that certain socket AM3 motherboards would support AMD's upcoming Bulldozer processors. Since then, we've turned up additional rumors on the nature of such support. MSI has also announced its own plans to retrofit some existing AM3 boards with Bulldozer compatibility. What follows is the general shape of the situation as we currently understand it...

Intel Core i3 2100
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel designed the Sandy Bridge to replace the mainstream processors, so it is natural that the company has unleashed processors that range from the $100 all the way to $300. We have already reviewed the Core i7-2600K and the Core i5-2500K for the enthusiast and mainstream markets. Today, we are going to look at the other side of the spectrum--the $124 Core i3-2100, which is the cheapest Sandy Bridge processor available at the moment.

AMD's Sub-$100 Line-up: Radeon HD 6450, 6570 & 6670 Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 3:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rounding out its Radeon HD 6000 series, AMD this month launched three sub-$100 graphics cards; the $55 HD 6450; the $79 HD 6570 and the $99 HD 6670. Despite being low-end options, all three support Eyefinity and are of course, extremely power efficient. Let's see if they also have the gaming performance to boot.

PC Perspective witnessed IMFT production
     Sun, Apr 17 2011 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You may be asking yourself why shrink the die if you can't increase the capacity? It's all about yield. With the reduced width of this new die, IMFT can net a 50% gain in GB capacity per wafer. This translated to an even further reduction in flash memory costs, and will translate to even further reductions in the cost of SSD's, which is good news."

Intel Unveils 10-Core Xeons, Mission-Critical Servers
     Sun, Apr 17 2011 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel announced its new E-series of Xeon processors today, claiming that the new processors will deliver nearly unparalleled advances in CPU performance and power efficiency. It's been just over a year since Santa Clara released its Nehalem-based octal-core Beckton processors. Whereas Beckton was focused entirely on performance and architectural efficiency, these new Xeons are more balanced. The new chips boost the core count to ten (up to 20 threads with HT enabled) and will be offered at a wide range of TDPs...

AMD Brazos platform
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Also worth noting in my testing that even while running 3DMark Vantage, the Toshiba C655D has never gotten even remotely warm to the touch. Nor are there any loud fans running the whole time. The promises from AMD of a very cool computing environment with longer battery life that most Atom platforms seems to be met with this machine, even if the performance delta from Intel's options is less than I would have liked."

AMD Talks Fusion: Vision, Solutions, Software
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Fusion technology is finally here. At present AMD Fusion platforms only power low-end personal computers, in the coming months AMD will introduce Fusion chips for mainstream PCs. But what about the future of Fusion program? Will it power high-end desktops? Maybe next-generation game consoles? What advantages can Fusion bring to end users? Neal Robison, the head of software developer relations department will answer these questions here and now.

Intel Core i7 990X Extreme
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 1:49A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For those willing to spend $999 USD on a new processor, Intel has a new Core i7 part out that is stunningly fast. The Core i7 990X is the $999 successor to the previously reviewed Core i7 970 that ups the core frequency to 3.46GHz and provides a 3.73GHz Turbo Boost frequency. This six-core CPU with Hyper Threading works wonderful with Linux."

Core i7-990X Extreme Edition vs. Core i7-2600K
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 9:49P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel started integrating the new Sandy Bridge processor microarchitecture not in the upper price segment, but in the mainstream LGA1155. This resulted in internal competition between the new LGA1155 and the old LGA1366 processors. So, which one will win in this round, the progressive Sandy bridge or the previous-generation Gulftown?

AMD and their Future Really is Fusion.
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"These are certainly exciting times for AMD. The HD 6000 series of graphics chips are doing well in the market. They are now truly competitive at the high end again. Their CPUs have been holding their own, especially due to the help that Intel gave them with the Sandy Bridge issue. They are about to release what looks to be a very power CPU architecture in Bulldozer, and they will be rewriting the books when it comes to integrated graphics performance and capabilities. Certainly AMD will not overtake Intel, but we as consumers do need a strong and competitive AMD for the sake of our own wallets."

new AM3+ platform
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The biggest potential win for AMD would have been a successful AM3+ motherboard launch, but they still were not able to move up that particular product. If AMD had been able to come out swinging with this new socket, and new motherboards designed around it, we could very well have seen a much more significant boost to AMD. While there are no Bulldozer nor Llano based chips available, AM3+ boards do support current AM3 processors. Releasing the high end 990FX and budget 970 boards, neither of which utilize the integrated graphics of Llano, and populating them with current Phenom II and Athlon II CPUs could have provided a nice impetus to AMD and given the company a marketplace more prepared for the new CPUs to arrive later this Spring."

Build an Intel Sandy Bridge budget system - OcUK
     Wed, Apr 06 2011 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we will be doing something a little different from the typical review/article. With many moving over to the Sandy Bridge platform due to the excellent price : performance ratio, those wanting to upgrade at the current time will be surely considering Sandy Bridge. But not everyone has the cash to spend on a high-end system, and as our Sandy Bridge reviews have revealed - mainstream boards are now at a much more affordable cost when compared to any other platform to launch. Mainstream performance comes at budget pricing."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
