Intel is already moving from competitive dual-core processors to quad-core! Kentsfield CPUs are now ready for their launch, with four cores in all their glory.
A Quick Litmus Test
Intel gave us a chance to play around with a system using one of the upcoming quad-core Kentsfield core processors, now known as the Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6700.
Introduction and The Core Architecture
Intel has done it! They've lowered power consumption and improved battery life in our third and possibly final look at the Intel Core 2 Duo mobile CPU. So is the latest CPU all it's hyped up to be?
Introduction and Test Configuration
There's a new Core 2 Duo BIOS for the Asus Z96JS. Does this fix the power and performance issues we revealed on July 27th? We redo all the tests and find out what has improved. Not much changes except for one critical feature.
The Core 2 Duo Architecture
Intel's next generation mobile CPU is finally here and we run it through its paces to see if the wait was worth it. Can we expect a massive performance jump as we saw on the desktop part? Read on!
Core 2 Duo Architecture
Intel's Core 2 Duo desktop processor is finally. See what the processor formally known as Conroe can do!!
The New Conroe Processor
PC Perspective brought home a Conroe processor from Taiwan a week ago, and we have been putting it through the paces to see how it performs compared to both AMD's and Intel's current flagship CPUs.
Introduction and Specifications
Asus has released a 478-pin socket motherboard that supports Intel Core Duo processors and DDR2 memory in a micro-ATX form factor. This could be a perfect solution for users looking for a nearly silent PC for their home, office or HTPC.
Introduction and Processor Specifications
AMD is releasing the AM2 platform today that includes a new processor socket, new DDR2 memory controller and a new speed bump that helps them to keep the performance crown from Intel for at least a little bit longer.
First Hand with the PhysX Processor
We happened to play around with a PC equiped with an AGEIA PhysX processor and the new Ghost Recon demo and a demo copy of Cell Factor. Come see our videos!
One Final Voice
ATI puts in the final word at GDC with their take on the physics processing on GPUs. They offer a great upgrade path in their outlook on physics as well as possible performance benefits over the competition.
Introduction and Definitions
AGEIA is officially launching the PhysX PPU this evening at the Game Developers Conference that starts tomorrow. We have new details on the architecture as well as upcoming games that support it. Oh, and Alienware has some systems you can buy today.
A Sneak Peak and Test Configuration
Intel let us play around with an early Conroe desktop CPU sample and we put it through some gaming and media encoding benchmarks. The results are more than impressive.
Intel pretty divulged all today to the media at IDF about the new Core architecture that is going to be the fuel in Conroe's fire. Come read all about the new technology and how Intel's says they'll finally regain the performance crown.
Introduction and Processor Specs
AMD finally puts dual cores in their FX line of processors but sacrifice 200 MHz to the previous FX flagship CPU. Does the FX-60 have it what takes to be the new top CPU in the land?
The Pentium XE 955 CPU
Intel is announcing a new processor today that packs 4 MB of L2 cache and a 1066 MHz FSB into a 65nm core.
AMD's X2 line of processors is probably the best you can buy. But wouldn't like to get the top level performance without having to pay the top dollar? Don't we all! But the X2 3800+ looks like it has what it takes to bring that to you.
The Pentium D Processor
Intel released the Pentium D line up along with the Extreme Edition processor last month, but we are finally starting to see them for sale in the channel. Should you be looking at the low cost 820 for your next upgrade?
After the first day of Computex, three of AMD's executives sat down with a handful of press for a small Q&A session that covered some candid topics on Intel's products as well as their own.
The Athlon 64 X2 Processor
AMD is getting set to push their first dual core Athlon 64 X2 processors out to the world next month. How do they stand up to the Intel CPUs released last month? Are they going to be worth the extra cash they are asking for?
