By combining their energy-efficient Celeron 847 processor with an NM70 chipset Intel created a new desktop platform for SFF PC, which may easily push Atom and Brazos of the pedestal. Our today’s test session will show if the new product with Core microarchitecture is capable of competing against specialty energy-efficient and inexpensive processors.
Inexpensive hybrid processors become better and faster. Which one should be your today’s choice? Should you go for an AMD A10, A8, A6 or A4, or prefer an Intel Core i3, Pentium or Celeron? We carried out an extensive test session of Socket FM2 and LGA 1155 platforms with integrated graphics and are ready to answer this question for you once and for all.
Intel Core i7-3960X has been the fastest processors for high-performance desktop systems for an entire year. But time has come for it to step down: today Intel offers Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition. Although the newcomer is hardly any different from its predecessor, we decided to subject it to detailed features and performance testing in our lab.
The launch of Socket AM3+ processors with Piledriver microarchitecture inspired many AMD fans. However, until recently we only based our opinion on the results obtained from the top model in the new AMD FX family. Today we are going to make up for this omission and carry out a detailed performance analysis of all Vishera processors with eight, six and four cores.
Piledriver microarchitecture, a refreshed Bulldozer, has finally reached the flagship AMD FX processors. Will it make the Socket AM3+ platform more appealing than LGA 1155? Quite possible, because the new AMD microarchitecture wasn’t the only trick they had up their sleeve.
Trinity demonstrated some very inspiring performance in graphics tests last week. However, AMD’s traditional weakness is its x86 cores. Let’s see if the company engineers managed to resolve this problem in the new Piledriver microarchitecture that found its way into promising hybrid processors.
New hybrid AMD Trinity processors for desktop systems haven’t been officially launched yet. However, we prepared a detailed review of their graphics omponent.
We continue talking about different desktop CPUs on third generation Core microarchitecture. Today we will discuss dual-core products: Core i3-3420, Core i3-3225 and Core i3-3220.
We have tested the entire third generation Core i5 processor line-up based on Ivy bridge microarchitecture including Core i5-3570K, Core i5-3570, Core i5-3550 and Core i5-3450 models. How much better are these newcomers than the good old Sandy Bridge CPUs?
In 2013, 4th generation Intel Core processor family based on "Haswell" microarchitecture will bring faster, thinner, lighter, cooler, more secure systems with built-in graphics to mainstream.
Processor microarchitectures continue developing, and the DDR3 SDRAM frequencies continue growing. However, does it really make sense to use high-speed memory with contemporary Ivy Bridge processors? To answer this question we analyzed the influence of memory frequency and latencies on the performance of a contemporary LGA 1155 platform.
Intel Atom processors are now produced using 32 nm manufacturing process. They have also been enhanced with a new graphics core that supports Full HD video playback. Will all these improvements make the new Cedar Trail platform a worthy alternative to AMD Brazos?
A year and a half after the launch of the LGA 1155 platform Intel is updating its key component – the CPU. The new manufacturing process, improved microarchitecture and refreshed lineup – is it the coming of a new star?
Today we are going to compare the performance of Socket FM1 and LGA 1155 systems. Will a hybrid Llano processor be able to beat the entry-level Intel CPU paired with an entry-level graphics accelerator? How efficient AMD Dual Graphics technology is? Does overclocking make Socket FM1 systems more attractive?
In the nearest future Intel is going to start selling their new quad-core LGA 2011 processor – Core i7-3820, which will boast low price tag of only $285. Let’s see how attractive the new product is going to be.
Sandy Bridge-E processors brought a lot of new tasks to computer enthusiasts, one of which is to choose the optimal memory for the new system. What is more important for LGA 2011 performance: the number of memory channels, memory frequency or memory timings?
We will talk about the mainstream and entry-level AMD FX CPU modifications based on Bulldozer microarchitecture and featuring eight-, six- and four-core design.
Six-core processors for enthusiasts are finally migrating to Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. And in the process they acquire quad-channel memory controller, integrated PCI Express 3.0 controller and extensive overclocking-friendly functionality. Are these innovations enough to help them set new performance records?
Over the past few months AMD and Intel have been actively promoting desktop processors with computational and graphics cores insides. During our comparative test session we studied hybrid products like that and compared the performance of AMD A8, A6 and A4 against that of Intel Core i3 and Pentium processors.
The great revolution that AMD has been talking about for so long has finally happened! Today we managed to meet an eight-core desktop processor based on the long-anticipated Bulldozer microarchitecture. Find out from our review if AMD managed to regain the long lost leadership this time.
