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."

Intel Core i5-2500K LGA 1155 “Sandy Bridge” Processor
     Thu, Mar 31 2011 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The word Sandy Bridge is what we have been hearing for the past 3 months. In forums, on different websites and even on the news. Sandy Bridge is the codename for Intel’s new 32nm processor architecture. This new architecture brings on-die graphics to a whole new level and still has all of the same features we saw on the Nehalem architecture. It adds even more with Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Quick Sync Video, Intel InTru 3D, and AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) instructions. With this new architecture Intel is releasing 11 desktop processors, we will be taking the Core i5-2500K throug h the paces, read on to check it out!"

News: Asus K53E dual-core Sandy Bridge notebook
     Thu, Mar 31 2011 | 3:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve already put a quad-core Sandy Bridge notebook through the paces but how does a system with a dual-core CPU based on the same architecture perform? Does it give previous-gen Core 2010 chips a run for their money and perhaps more importantly does it offer better battery life?"

     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

They are targeted for netbooks and nettops, which is the market where AMD hasn’t been represented at all before. However, will AMD manage to revolutionize this market and push aside Intel Atom and Nvidia ION? Let’s find out!

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

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."

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.
