Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 11:13A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel have wasted no time in making sure they are the stars of CES 2011. They decided to lift the wraps on their biggest CPU microarchitecture change since the Pentium Pro a few days before the event. Today we can share with you the performance results of a few of their desktop models – the Core i7 2600K and Core i5 2500K. There has been an incredible amount of hype behind this launch, so be sure to read on to see if it was warranted! Hint: IT WAS. We’ll be looking at GPU performance in detail later on, so for now check out our Sandy Bridge CPU Performance Review.

Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5-2500K & Core i7-2600K processors
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 11:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Intel still adhering to its tick / tock release strategy, it was only a matter of time until a new architecture was introduced and it's name is Sandy Bridge. Today marks the launch of no less than eight new desktop processors based on a highly refined 32nm manufacturing process and ranging in price from $120 all the way up to nearly $350. Their goal is to effectively replace a large portion of the Clarkdale and Lynnfield products while offering up stiff competition against AMD's current and upcoming CPUs.

Intel Core i5 2300 2400 & 2500K Sandy Bridge Review
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 11:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A little over a year ago now we saw the introduction of the Intel Core i7, i5 and i3 LGA 1156 processors which replaced the Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad predecessor. These chips paved the way for the mainstream market. Delivering excellent performance to enthusiasts who are perhaps on a budget. LGA1156 basically offers excellent performance at a lower price-point compared to the LGA 1366 Core i7. But, some 15 months on and we have a successor to the short-lived LGA1156 Core i7, i5, i3."

Intel taks the wraps off the most anticipated bits of silicon
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 9:54A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
She's finally here. At last, Intel is taking the wraps off of one of the most anticipated bits of silicon we've seen in years: Sandy Bridge. We've known the architectural details of the processor code-named Sandy Bridge for months--they are formidable, new, and different--but we haven't known exactly how the changes would translate into performance and power efficiency, which is the big question about any product overhauled this extensively.

Posted by: STAFF
“These new Sandy Bridge chips are monsters, make no mistake. And 1155 is not a step backwards from 1156; in fact, it's quite a leap ahead in terms of performance. We've got locked and unlocked chips, Core i5 and i7 on the bench today: 2400, 2500K, and 2600K. These chips run the gamut of the performance lineup, and they’re performance monsters.”

Posted by: STAFF
"One year later we find ourselves in a similar situation. CES is upon us and once again, Intel has launched another exciting line of processors for 2011. Codenamed Sandy Bridge, the 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor Family represents the “Tock” in Intel's “Tick-Dock” development model. Although Sandy Bridge is built on the 32nm process like Westmere, it features an all-new micro-architecture with improvements across the board."

Core i5-2500K and Core i7-2600K
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 9:52A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MBReview has released their review of Intel’s new “Sandy Bridge” processors, the Core i5-2500K and Core i7-2600K. Paired with two new chipsets, the H67 and P67, these processors offer a compelling argument for consumers in the market for an upgrade. If you feel this article would be of interest to your readers, a link would be appreciated. “If boards are offered at the right price, I can see users of older Core 2 processors having plenty of reasons to upgrade to Sandy Bridge. Intel has suggested MSRP's of $107 for the DH67BL and $184 for the DP67BG. At these competitive prices, we're likely to see some excellent boards in the sub $200 range, and likely a few solid solutions around the $150-$160 mark. If this is the case, we'll have more reason to consider suggesting upgrades to Sandy Bridge, but only for older products in need of it, i.e. Core 2 Duo / Core 2 Quad and prior generations.”

Intel Core i7-2820QM Mobile Sandy Bridge Processor
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 5:28A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About this time last year, Intel offered us a complete processor revamp and architecture update for both the desktop and mobile markets. Intel called it their evolutionary "tick" step in their manufacturing process migration from 45 to 32nm. The "tock," as it were, follows along in cadence offering refinement and feature enhancement that completes the product evolution. So here we are, about 12 months or so later, and the "tock" cometh. Intel's Core i7-2820QM processor is the vehicle that we'll be using as a means of evaluating Intel's new architecture. It's not the highest-end SKU in the line-up but it has all the bells and whistles enabled and about 90% of top-end clock speed that Intel will offer in their "Extreme" version mobile chip. In a 45 Watt power envelope, this is the Sandy Bridge chip you'll likely see in some of the more capable multimedia targeted notebooks coming to market in 2011. And we'd dare say, at this early juncture, it packs a healthy serving of beef-cake computing muscle for just about anything you could throw at it.

Intel Sandy Bridge Core i5-2500K & i7-2600K
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 5:27A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lets get the worst thing about these new CPUs out of the way before talking about some of their new features and performance enhancements- these new CPUs bring a new socket with them. This is a bit of a shame as this will be the fourth socket for Intel CPUs in the last few years. We saw the move from LGA 775 found in Core 2 Duo CPUs to LGA 1366 with the introduction of the Core i7 extreme in 2008 which was followed by the mainstream Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs with the LGA 1156 socket in 2009. What this means is that you will need a new motherboard if you plan on upgrading to the new Core CPU which has an LGA 1155 socket. With that out of the way, here is what these new Sandy Bridge CPU’s architecture look like

'Intel was kind enough to provide us with the newly released Core i7 2600K processor to give our readers an idea of its overall performance throughout different tests including: overall PC performance, video (HD) rendering performance, 3D and gaming performance, productivity performance, and power consumption and temperature improvements. We will try to address these points as accurately as possible, and compare the results to a Core i7 930 processor at stock and overclocked speeds.'

Intel Core i7 2600K - SandyBridge - Processor Review
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 5:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Times are changing; Intel has listened to its hard core users and has produced a totally unlocked processor. The 2nd Generation Intel Core Processor, codenamed “SandyBridge” (specifically the K- Series) offer a fully unlocked core multiplier, power and memory ratios (DDR 3), as well as an unlocked graphics multiplier. Graphics Multiplier? Yes you read correctly, the new “SandyBridge” processors come with Intel’s newest DirectX 10 HD Graphics (3000) on the same chip, which can reach dynamic frequencies up to 1350 MHz."

"By using my standard testbed cooling, the Noctua NH-U12P, they never came out of the 60s Celsius. Fine tuning the voltage would reduce the temperatures even further. With that being said, the overclocks achieved on these two examples of the Sandybridge lineup were literally the highest overclocks I have gotten on air cooling of any kind on any processor. 4.62GHz on the 2600K and 4.77GHz on the 2500K are just amazing for a new architecture and my first run through with them. So what do you say now about overclocking being dead on Sandybridge? Dead? I think not!"

new lineup of Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs based on the Sandy Bridge
     Mon, Jan 03 2011 | 12:54A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The next generation in Intel Core architecture is finally upon us in the form of the Sandy Bridge platform, leveraging the new LGA 1155 motherboard socket and Intel P67 and H67 chipsets. The new lineup of Intel Core i5 and i7 CPUs based on the Sandy Bridge architecture promise even better performance than Intel's current Nethalem CPUs, at no real extra cost. We join in on the launch madness with an in-depth review of two special Sandy Bridge CPUs, the Intel Core i5 2500K and Core i7 2600K, priced at $215 and $317, respectively. Both are "K" edition processors, meaning they sport an unlocked CPU multiplier for easy overclocking. We certainly didn't miss out on the chance to abuse that! See how well Intel's next generation Core architecture fares against the Nethalem, as well as AMD's hexa-cores, in our latest review!

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.
