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.

AMD Phenom II X4 975BE and 840 CPU Reviews
     Fri, Feb 25 2011 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD has just released their latest quad-core speed-bump in order to give consumers the option for a little more bang and a little more buck. With the release of the AMD Phenom II X4 975 'Black Edition' processor, AMD has added a new king to their Phenom II X4 quad-core product line. The previous leader in this category was the Phenom II X4 970 at 3.5GHz and 125W TDP. The 975 adds 100MHz for a total of 3.6GHz. This clock speed not only marks the highest quad core, but the highest base factory clock chip in all of AMD's desktop processor lines. With a price-point of $195, AMD also maintains their sub-$200 barrier in their quad-core processors..."

AMD Phenom II X4 975 BE and Phenom II X4 840 (Socket AM3) CPUs
     Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There really is nothing "new" to talk about here. Well ok - there is the fact that both of these got a slight speed increase over what is currently available in their lines. The 975 BE gets pushed to 3.6GHz while the 840 gets a bump to 3.2. Overall, not a bad increase, but we do want to see if this is all marketing or if it really means better performance for the consumer. Overclocking the Phenom II X4 975 BE was not all that hard. We simply tweaked the multiplier and also adjusted the core frequency a little bit (along with a small voltage bump) and we were off. The problem comes from the relatively low overclocks we are still getting."

Intel Previews 32nm Itanium Poulson Processor:
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 6:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week, at ISSCC (International Solid-State Circuits Conference) Intel unveiled its next-generation Itanium processor, codenamed Poulson. This new octal-core processor is easily the most significant update to Itanium Intel has ever built and could upset the current balance of power at the highest-end of the server / mainframe market. It may also be the Itanium that fully redeems the brand name and sheds the last vestiges of negativity that have dogged the chip since it launched ten years ago...

AMD Phenom II X4 840 & X4 975 Black Edition Processors
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is no denying the fact that AMD has been hell-bent on providing the CPU market with some much-needed value options as of late. While this approach hasn't led to any direct competitors against Intel's high-end products, there are several Phenom and Athlon processors that feature an excellent price / performance ratio. Today, AMD is releasing two more quad core Phenom II CPUs: the enthusiast-friendly X4 975 BE and the sub-$120 X4 840.

Intel Core i5 2500K "SandyBridge" Processor Review
     Fri, Feb 18 2011 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel is making another push with the Intel Core i5 2500K. The Core i5 2500K is based off of the new Sandy Bridge architecture. The i5 2500K has a base frequency of 3.3GHz, a max turbo frequency of 3.7GHz, and is loaded with 6MB of L3 cache. There are 4 cores but no hyperthreading support, so 4 threads as well. The "K" version of the i5 2500 puts the Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor on die, instead of the 2000. The "K" version also means fully unlocked and flexible overclocking capabilities. LGA-1155 will be the new socket to hold the latest Intel Core processors. There is support for Intel's new AVX instruction set, Intel's Quick Sync Video, and Virtualization."

Intel Demos Sandy Bridge Virtualization
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:51P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel took the wraps off their Sandy Bridge desktop and mobile platform back in January and with new technologies like an improved integrated HD Graphics engine, Quick Sync video encoding and Turbo Boost 2.0 dynamic overclocking, it was obvious that Intel was shooting for more than just a performance kick. Also, though perhaps a bit more low-key than some of the consumer-targeted bells and whistles, Intel also baked in a few key enhancements in the area of enterprise management and security. Intel's vPro badge has adorned notebooks and desktops in previous generation Core processor platforms and with Intel's latest incarnation, Sandy Bridge takes vPro capabilities to the next level.

The AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer CPU and Scorpius (FX) Platform Reviewed ? Part Two
     Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 9:33P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks concludes it`s look at the Bulldozer and uncovers what it does well (and what it doesn`t) ... *The AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer CPU and Scorpius (FX) Platform Reviewed ? Part Two* It is time to poke even deeper into AMD?s latest flagship processor, the FX-8150. We covered a lot of ground in Part 1 with our first impressions of the FX-8150 and the pieces that make up the new Scorpius Platform. In Part 2, we are going to see if you can narrow down some of the issue(s) highlighted in our first look, including a closer look at the spotty performance observed in the first piece. We are also going to turn the FX-8150 dial all the way up to eleven to see what kind of potential this new chip has. This is going to be a roller coaster ride of ups and downs so you might want to strap in tight. * * *"

AMD Fusion - The Future in APUs
     Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD’s Fusion technology aims to solve both the need for ultra low power consumption and muscular computing mobile systems. The current IGP-based platforms are just simply not efficient enough to deliver the graphics performance and battery life that modern mobile computing requires. Please read HiTechLegion’s previous articles on Fusion for a more detailed look on this technology. The first two of AMD’s Fusion APUs are designed for the notebook and Netbook markets. “Zacate” is an 18W mainstream APU primarily designed for notebook and all-in-one desktop use. AMD will also have the 9W “Ontario” APU that can deliver HD graphics to netbooks and other small-form factor computing solutions. Ontario is projected to outperform all current netbook’s graphics performance by as much as 10 times."
