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.
Our final report from IDF 2011 is solely devoted to Sandy Bridge-E processors and LGA2011 platform. We gathered together everything that we learned about the upcoming processors, cooling systems and mainboards, and also found out how the new platform will overclock and what we could expect from the six-core Sandy Bridge-E CPUs.
IDF 2011 continues and this time we are ready to share some exciting details about the upcoming Intel Ivy Bridge processors, which promise us faster graphics, higher energy-efficiency, higher performance and a lot of other great features.
The junior processor models on Sandy Bridge microarchitecture for LGA1155 systems have finally arrived. Let’s take a closer look at the sacrifices you’ll have to make in order to get a contemporary platform with minimal financial investments.
If you are planning to build a fast but quiet system with low power consumption, then Intel may offer you a variety of LGA1155 processors with 45 W or 35 W TDP. But does cutting their power consumption in half bring any additional limitations? Let’s find out!
Desktop Lynx platform that includes hybrid Llano processors has finally found its way to the consumers. Let’s take a closer look at it and find out how successful the combination of old Stars processor cores and a high-performance Radeon GPU actually is.
Intel is now offering dual-core Sandy Bridge processors under Pentium brand. They lower the price for the “LGA1155 Club” membership quite noticeably, because they are selling for less than $100 a piece. Does it mean that the new Pentium processors may become a new perfect combination of performance and price? Let’s find out!
Sandy Bridge processors set a number of tasks for computer enthusiasts, one of them being choosing the right memory. LGA1155 systems can work with DDR3-1067, DDR3-1333, DDR3-1600, DDR3-1866 and DDR3-2133, but does it really make sense to use super-fast memory in them?
Sandy Bridge is not only high-performance quad-core CPUs. There are also inexpensive dual-core LGA1155 processors in this family, and today we are going to talk about them in our new article.
The variety of components for small energy-efficient systems keeps growing day by day. In this review we are going to talk about energy-efficiency processors: AMD E-350 (Zacate) and Intel Core i3-2100T (Sandy Bridge). We will also discuss new Mini-ITX mainboards: Gigabyte E350N-USB3 (AMD Brazos platform) and Zotac H67-ITX WiFi (for LGA1155 processors).
Intel started integrating the new Sandy Bridge processor microarchitecture not in the upper price segment, but in the mainstream LGA1155. This resulted in internal competition between the new LGA1155 and the old LGA1366 processors. So, which one will win in this round, the progressive Sandy bridge or the previous-generation Gulftown?
AMD's Fusion technology is finally here. At present AMD Fusion platforms only power low-end personal computers, in the coming months AMD will introduce Fusion chips for mainstream PCs. But what about the future of Fusion program? Will it power high-end desktops? Maybe next-generation game consoles? What advantages can Fusion bring to end users? Neal Robison, the head of software developer relations department will answer these questions here and now.
The first new product from AMD that should get the company back to the route of success is the totally new processor family using Bobcat microarchitecture. They are targeted for netbooks and nettops, which is the market where AMD hasn’t been represented at all before. However, will AMD manage to revolutionize this market and push aside Intel Atom and Nvidia ION? Let’s find out!
The desktop Sandy Bridge lineup includes a few processors with low TDP. We took one of these products and tried to estimate how appealing it might be for those who build quiet compact computer systems.
Intel has jut started selling new LGA1155 processors with Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. We tested a few most interesting new offerings, which will be conquering the mainstream price segment.
In a few weeks we will start posting reviews of Intel processors based on the new Sandy Bridge microarchitecture. But while we are still bound by the NDA, we decided to sum up all the information we know about these promising new products, which doesn’t fall under the NDA.
