The Sandy Bridge-E is the first-ever consumer processor (as well as its platform) to support a quad-channel DDR3 memory architecture. We attempt to find out how much performance impact you would notice if toggling between different memory channel modes (dual, triple and quad) and memory frequency.
The 3960X Extreme Edition CPU is the top model of the 2nd generation Intel Core i7 series and is clocked at 3.3GHz with turbo speeds up to 3.9GHz. Features quad-channel memory support, 40-lane PCIe controller and comes unlocked for overclockers. Find out if it delivers!
Bulldozing down the competition are the AMD FX processors which are targeted at enthusiasts and rig builders who want to customize and push their rigs for maximum performance without breaking the bank. We detail the basics of the new CPUs.
Blizzard's Diablo III beta is finally live! But can your system handle it in all its dark, fantasy glory? We find out with three variously configured machines.
The soon to be released Sandy Bridge-E processor (also known as the Extreme Edition) with new X79 motherboards were spotted at IDF 2011's tech showcase.
Intel's upcoming Ivy Bridge processor based on the world's first tri-gate transistor is going to be more than just a die shrink from 32nm to 22nm.
Intel outlines its efforts to reduce idle platform power consumption by more than 20 times in its next generation Haswell processor products for Ultrabooks at the Intel Developers Forum 2011 (IDF 2011).
Promising the best integrated graphics performance ever, AMD's Llano is now officially on the desktop. Do these new A-Series APU live up to the billing? Will AMD's promise of Fusion computing finally kick off in the mainstream? To answer that, we check out the AMD A8-3850 APU.
The new AMD A-Series APU (Llano) is upon us and we have a first hand preview of their new Sabine notebook platform. Would AMD's latest Fusion processor be a Sandy Bridge killer?
Intel shared their vision of companion computing and their plans with the Atom platform. We also took a tour of Intel's booth.
