Core i7-2600K CPU Review
     Fri, Jan 21 2011 | 6:52P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel launched this month their new CPUs based on the "Sandy Bridge" architecture. Let's check the performance of the new Core i7-2600K (3.4 GHz) and compare it to the CPU it came to replace, the Core i7-875K (2.93 GHz), and to the most expensive CPU from AMD, the Phenom II X6 1100T (3.3 GHz)."

The Fusion technology is the topic that AMD has discussed the most in the last five years. As we approach the launch of the first Fusion APU, the company starts to reveal more details about the architecture of Fusion and its technical aspects. Find out how AMD plans to tweak performance of Llano, why it decided to use TSMC fabs for Ontario, why did it take more than four years to fuse CPU with GPU and more insights about the AMD Fusion program.

"Both companies were expecting a performance and feature boost when 28 nm comes online, but it is certainly later than most everyone had planned for. Instead, we are seeing new designs on the current 40 nm process, and will continue to see derivative parts being introduced over the next six to seven months. Then it will be the buildup to the 28 nm generation. So, we really do not expect to see a big jump in features and performance throughout this next year. Cayman and GTX 580 will essentially rule the roost as the top performing single chip solutions."

Call of Duty: Black Ops GPU & CPU Performance In-depth
     Wed, Jan 19 2011 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two years ago we published an in-depth performance review of the fifth major installment in the Call of Duty series, World at War. Since then Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was released almost exactly a year ago. Now on to a successive and very successful yearly release, Call of Duty: Black Ops arrives, paving the way for even more games in the series. Developed by Treyarch, Call of Duty: Black Ops debuts a new theme around the Cold War conflict. We test 19 graphics card configurations, using AMD and Nvidia GPUs that ranged from the uber expensive models to budget-minded offerings.

Intel Next Generation Core i5-2500K and i7-2600K Sandy Bridge
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 8:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sandy Bridge is Intel’s next generation 32nm architecture processor adding to their already illustrious CPU genealogy. While Sandy Bridge is architecturally similar to the Core i3, i5, and i7 processors featuring an integrated memory controller and on-die integrated graphics, it is indeed a new beast. The new on-die graphics core promises to change our perception of what integrated graphics can offer and new internal optimizations make the processor far more media aggressive than anything have seen to date. Let’s go over the features that make this new platform special and see what the benchmarks say.

Fun Facts: Intel's Sandy Bridge Processors
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:50P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Around this time last year we ran a story with some fun facts about Intel's then debutant 32nm manufacturing technology. For example, we learned that a 32nm transistor can switch on and off over 300 billion times in one second, conversely it would take a human 4000 years to flick a light switch on and off that many times. For the launch of their 2nd-gen Intel Core CPUs (a.k.a. Sandy Bridge), they have compiled another interesting list of fun facts. We have selected the ones we find more amusing and are republishing them with Intel's permission.

Intel Core i7-800 Processor Series
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The two Core i7 series - for the sockets LGA1156 and LGA1366 - offer similar pricing and specifications, with the exception of Gulftown-based hexacore products which only exist in one series and stand out in both aspects. So it's very interesting to find out whether such "twofold existence" is actually justified."

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.
