Benchmarking 86 CPUs takes a while. After long last, though, we have 51 models from AMD and 35 from Intel tested in our current suite. If you want to know how your processor sizes up to its competition, you'll find plenty of comparison data...

Dealing with current news means that we rarely have the opportunity to review old products and of course a comparison between the most recent products and those that came out several years ago can get a little problematic. But we’ve decided to push...

Il y a environ 7 ans, l’optimisation des architectures (modification de l'IPC) ainsi que la montée en fréquence étaient les deux seules approches possibles pour faire progresser les performances. Sur le plan théorique, ces dernières ont depuis...

De afgelopen twee jaar is er veel gebeurd in processorland: nieuwe series, nieuwe sockets, de eerste chips met geïntegreerde videokaart en ga zo maar door. Begin volgend jaar komen Intel en AMD weer met nieuwe processorseries. Tijd dus om de balans...

Après avoir réuni sept des processeurs les plus attractifs à moins de 150 euros, nous avons donc voulu voir quel modèle offrait le meilleur rapport performances/prix, mais aussi l’écart de performances entre les premiers prix de notre sélection (80...

A pesar de que aún no podemos tomar una conclusión definitiva ya que tenemos pendiente el apartado de overclock, es posible decir que AMD renueva buena sangre sus líneas Athlon II, con cuatro procesadores orientados a diferentes mercados...
