Trying Out & Benchmarking The DigitalOcean Cloud
     Fri, Apr 25 2014 | 4:00P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of the more popular test requests recently at Phoronix.com has been to deliver some reference benchmarks of DigitalOcean's public cloud. DigitalOcean is an increasingly-popular, low-cost public cloud that got started back in 2011. Due to being always inundated with new Linux review and benchmark requests at Phoronix, it has taken a while to get around to it, but at Phoronix today we're posting our first reference benchmarks of the Linux-powered DigitalOcean cloud platform."

Sony Xperia Z1 Review
     Wed, Nov 20 2013 | 4:01P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the Xperia Z1. New Snapdragon 800 SoC. New 20.7-megapixel Exmor RS camera. New aluminium body. In many respects, this is what Sony was aiming for with the original Xperia Z: a solid set of features to lure any smartphone buyer. It may be out a little later than your Galaxy S4 or HTC One, but there's no doubting that the Z1 is a high-end handset to take Sony into 2014.

Nvidia Tegra 4: the first benchmarks
     Fri, Aug 30 2013 | 4:02P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We can be brief about the performance of the Tegra 4. It's a very powerful chip, and it stands head and shoulders above all of the other SoCs used in Android tablets. The Tegra 4 has a GPU that's actually as powerful as the one in the iPad, which is definitely an accomplishment.

PCMark 8 Review
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 9:17A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As mentioned on the previous page, I ran into an issue when running PCMark 8. One of the Web Browsing tests repeatedly gets stuck whenever it is run for the second time during a benchmark. This prevents me from completing the standard benchmarks that use it, as they all run three passes to get consistent results. Futuremark is aware of the issue as it has been reported by multiple people running Windows 7. I am confident the developers will be able to find and fix it."

AMD A10-6800K and A10-6700 Review: Richland Finally Lands
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 9:01A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD still has a nice lead in terms of graphics performance over Intel when it comes to desktop APUs. While Intel rules the CPU roost, the GPU is still the primary selling point for these products (that and the price). Intels latest Haswell parts for the desktop feature the GT2 graphics architecture, and do not include the GT3 and GT3e units. GT3 would give AMD a run for their money if it were included in desktop parts, and GT3E would eat AMDs lunch. This is the unfortunate truth for AMD when it comes to the mobile market. But for desktop, the GT2 graphics slice is just not good enough to even get close to the 6700 and 6800K in performance."

AMD A10-6800K and A10-6700 Richland APU Reviews @ Legit Reviews

AMD Richland APUs are said to bring 20-40 percent performance increases over the previous generation of AMD A-Series Trinity APUs, so AMD fans have been waiting months for this day to come. Read on to see how the AMD A10-6800K and A10-6700 perform!"

Frame Capture and Analysis Tools Review
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 8:01A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A tremendous amount of data is created during the capture and analysis process including charts that plot out the 95th and 99th percentile frame rates as well as charts that show the observed FPS versus the FRAPS FPS. Below are some representations of the data presented showing that yes, even with the latest drivers AMD is struggling with some frame time issues that drive the FPS delivered down to a level below that reported by FRAPS. Looking at the Frame Time chart you can see that when run in a CrossfireX configuration the frame time data is all over the board whereas NVIDIA`s multi GPU solution delivers a consistent line across the chart. Slightly wider than the single GPU line but still much improved over the AMD configurations. Another look using the percentile chart illustrates this a little differently, showing that as the outliers are removed the FPS takes a downward swing. The results from one game do not tell the whole tale so looking at BF3 as well as Far Cry 3 provides a pair of results to illustrate the point with a little larger base of video cards."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
