AMD Phenom 2 X4 980BE Cpu
     Sun, Jul 17 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time for another CPU review, today we have a sample of a Phenom 2 X4 980 cpu for testing that we are going to throw against an Intel CPU and a AMD CPU. Lets figure out how well these end up performing.

Intel Core i3-2120 & Core i5-2400 LGA1155 processors
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 4:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given how great the Core i5-2500K and i7-2600K perform, it is easy to forget that the current Sandy Bridge LGA1155 processors are part of Intel’s mainstream series, not their high-end one. Therefore, it is more than due time for us to test out some of the lower priced offerings. Although we would love to try them all, the two models that we are reviewing today are the Core i3-2120 and the Core i5-2400, which respectively have $138 and $184 MSRPs.

Prolimatech Genesis CPU Cooler Review
     Thu, Jul 14 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do we start with the Prolimatech Genesis? For a start, it’s not your everyday single or dual tower cooler. The Genesis is very unique in its design; it is composed of two radiators, one upright and the other designed as a down-draft heatsink to cool memory modules, MOSFETs and the motherboard Northbridge. This makes the Genesis a very versatile cooler and a promising one at that as it combines the sheer cooling potential of a regular heatsink and the motherboard cooling capability of down-draft coolers such as the Noctua NH-C14. There is a risk that Prolimatech have compromised on the design such that its efficiency is effectively reduced by implementing two concepts into one cooler. On initial looks the upright radiator appears very narrow and realistically we expect larger towers with higher surface areas to be the best performers. But as we all know, initial impressions don’t tell the whole story and with Prolimatech’s history of delivering high quality cooling solutions, we expect the Genesis design to revolutionise the future air cooling market.

Overclocking AMD’s A8-3850 Llano APU
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 2:40P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Previously we ran the full review of AMD’s Lynx desktop chip, the A8-3850, which is their Llano architecture for desktops. In that review, regrettably, I was not able to explore overclocking this platform. Thankfully, after a bit more time, that has been remedied."

AMD Fusion: A8-3500M A-Series Llano APU Review
     Thu, Jun 30 2011 | 5:47P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, AMD is lifting the veil on their next generation mainstream mobile processor, code named Llano. This latest volley by AMD is aimed at hitting Intel right in the mid-section, where the bulk of multimedia capable notebooks are sold. These are higher-end machines, where the likes of Intel's new Sandy Bridge-based Core i5 and Core i7 dual and quad-core processors live. The platform we'll give you a look at today is AMD's A Series; specifically we have an A8 APU-based machine that we'll break down for your edification and spin up on the test bench so you can see its performance profile.

Llano and the Fusion architecture
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 6:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has clearly articulated a software and hardware roadmap for unified CPU and GPU computing at their Fusion Developer’s Summit that has all the right pieces. Llano and Zacate are the first integration steps and focus on reducing overhead by sharing – rather than copying – data between the CPU and GPU. Llano made a number of compromises in favor of time to market, such as using a very mediocre CPU core and relying on memory rather than on-die caches for CPU/GPU communication. However, it still packs the best performance integrated graphics period, and good media decoding. Overall, Llano is a serious improvement for AMD’s notebooks, mostly due to power management, which should be well received by consumers. The trick for AMD going forward is to execute on their vision and consistently deliver compelling improvements in a timely fashion.

AMD Llano A-Series APU Sabine Notebook Platform Review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 6:23P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD Llano APUs will be available in notebooks ranging from $499 to $799 and after the performance numbers that we saw we believe they will do very well in the mainstream notebook market. For years Intel dominated the notebook market and for the first time in a decade the company needs to be worried. AMD has a mainstream notebook that excels at normal user tasks and destroys the games..."
