A new AMD processor hits the streets
AMD is releasing a pair of new 45 watt processors today aimed at the lower power, low heat and low noise markets. That could be business, HTPC or anything else you might imagine up.
Introduction and Platform Design
Intel is now pushing a dual-socket platform with support for two quad-core processors as being the ultimate media creation computer. Does it hit the mark and can the software keep up with 8-cores of processing power?
IDF Moves Over Seas
Intel's largest technology showcase is being held in Beijing this week and the spring 2007 IDF is producing some good news and information. Come in and read about Skulltrail, Intel's answer to AMD's QuadFX platform, as well as Larrabee, the project that could turn Intel into a GPU powerhouse. Oh, and Penryn CPUs are benchmarked too!
Intel Details Penryn and Nehalem
Intel took time today to share some very interesting information on the upcoming Penryn core as well as the 2008 architecture known as Nehalem that is the first to bring on-die memory controllers and on-die graphics to Intel CPUs!
80 Cores at 4 GHz
Intel has released new information on their Terascale processing project that includes the ability to run the 80-core processor at speeds upto 4 GHz!
Intel Demos 45nm Up an Running
Intel discussed their upcoming move ot 45nm process technology and the future of the Penryn processor, the Core 2 Duo's successor.
Taking the Hype in Stride
AMD is launching their much-hyped "4x4 quad-father" platform today known as Quad FX. Can their sewn-together quad-corep processing initiative work or will with the power consumption and performance compared to Intel's QX6700 put it 6ft under?
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.
