Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge CPU and DZ77GA-70K Motherboard Review @MissingRemote
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year Intel?s Sandy Bridge ?TOCK? married the graphics processing unit (GPU) and CPU on the same die, making it a first class citizen in the system and introduced a true integrated processor graphics (IPG) solution. With HD audio bit steaming introduced in the previous generation, full hardware acceleration of VC-1, AVC (H.264), MPEG2 as well as 3D Blu-ray (MVC) and reasonable refresh rate accuracy already offered; Ivy Bridge?s 22nm die-shrinking ?TICK? could have easily rested only on improved process technology for frequency gains or power efficiency, but instead promises a little bit of raw performance with significant reductions in consumption. Most importantly for the home theater PC (HTPC) enthusiast significant improvements to the GPU are also included - offering greater flexibility in playback software selection as well as improvements to the existing media consumption experience. *"

Intel i7-3770K Ivy Bridge @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seemed like the virtual ink hadn?t even dried on our Sandy Bridge review and people were already talking about waiting for Ivy Bridge to come out. The same goes for our Sandy Bridge E write-up, a lot of people on the forums and at our events spoke about waiting for Ivy before making a decision. Well I can finally say that today is that day. We are going to take a look at Intel?s new Ivy Bridge CPUs, specifically the i7-3770K. We will put it up against all that Sandy Bridge had to offer along with a few Sandy Bridge E CPUs, including the competitively priced i7-3820. At the end of the day you will know what it?s all about and we will hopefully help give you the facts in your buying decision."

Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge Launch Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today Intel launch their CPU range and we are combining the i7-3770K with Gigabytes rather impressive looking G1.Sniper 3 and G1.Sniper M3 to find out if these components can make the ultimate Ivy Bridge System. Testing will of course include synthetic and real world, with the likes of 3DMark 11 and Battlefield 3 making an appearance with the GeForce GTX 680."

Intel Third Generation Core i7 3770K Review
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 11:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is Ivy Bridge all it`s cracked up to be and well worth the wait? It seems so. With measurable performance improvement in just about every benchmark, it`s hard to make a case for sticking with a Second Generation Core series processor for a new build. With performance improvements anywhere between 3 and 10+%, it`s just simple math when you look at the price point between the $313 Third Generation Core i7 3770K and $339 Second Generation Core i7 2600K."

[Tech ARP] Desktop CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 12.0
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 8:56A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. Currently covering 837 desktop CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 19 different specifications for each and every CPU. Here`s the latest update in Revision 12.0 : - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 651 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 641 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X4 638 quad-core processor. - Added the AMD Athlon II X2 221 dual-core processor. - Added the AMD Sempron X2 198 dual-core processor. - Added the Voltage specifications to the AMD FX series of processors. - Updated the Transistor Count and Die Size specifications of the AMD FX series of processors. - Updated the Release Date for the AMD FX-8100 8-core processor. - Updated the Release Date for the AMD FX-4170 quad-core processor. - Corrected the Multiplier specifications for the AMD Fusion (A) series of processors."

Intel's Ivy Bridge chips launch using '3D transistors'
     Sun, Apr 22 2012 | 10:57P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"Intel is launching its Ivy Bridge family of processors - the first to feature what it describes as a "3D transistor". The American firm says the innovation allows it to offer more computational power while using less energy. The initial release includes 13 quad-core processors, most of which will be targeted at desktop computers. This is the world's first 22 nanometre product and we'll be delivering about 20% more processor performance using 20% less average power." The firm has already built three factories to fabricate the new chips and a fourth will come online later this year. Mr Skaugen said that those who use the integrated GPU (graphics processing unit) on the chips, rather than a separate graphics card, would see some of the biggest gains. He said the processing speed had been significantly boosted since Sandy Bridge, meaning devices would be capable of handling high-definition video conferences and the 4K resolution offered by top-end video cameras. The GPU's transcoding rate also benefits from the upgrade, allowing users to recode video more quickly if they want to send clips via email or put them on a smartphone. The chips also offer new hardware-based security facilities as well as built-in USB 3.0 support. "

AMDs FX-8150 Bulldozer Benefits From New Compilers Tuning
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After looking at how Intel`s Sandy Bridge processor performance has evolved with the new GCC 4.7 compiler and Apple`s forthcoming LLVM 3.1 with Clang, here are benchmark results from the AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer Eight-Core processor with GCC 4.7.0 and the latest LLVM/Clang 3.1 development code along with looking at the performance impact of various compiler tuning flags for this latest-generation AMD CPU. Making things even more interesting, AMD`s Open64 4.5.1 compiler was also tossed into the testing mix."

GCC 4.7 Compiler Performance On AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:33A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we have seen that Intel`s Sandy Bridge is doing well on the new GCC 4.7 compiler, has AMD`s Bulldozer CPU architecture advanced at all for this leading multi-platform compiler? Up today are benchmarks of GCC 4.7.0 -- with comparative benchmarks going back to GCC 4.4 -- from an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Bulldozer setup."

AMD FX-6200 CPU Review: A Small Bulldozer Refresh
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I do not hate this processor. Neither do I love it though. The Bulldozer concept looked great on paper. Implementing it is another story altogether. A popular theory behind why the processor acts as it does is that AMD simply does not have the manpower to hand tune large portions of the chip. There is extensive use of automatic place and route of transistors on the software side, but I have heard it said that this results in a design that is about 20% slower and about 20% larger than a largely hand tuned design. When we start thinking of these numbers, we can look at the size of Bulldozer cores vs. that of the Intel i7/i5 series of parts. The Intel parts are smaller and have a much higher IPC, yet are still clocked aggressively to be the fastest performers on the block."
