We've already reviewed the top processor of AMD's Vishera family, FX-8350. That was just the beginning of the big refresh for the Socket AM3+ platform. AMD has also rolled out a number of more affordable CPUs. Today we're going to cover them in...

Now that Piledriver-based CPUs and APUs are widely available (and the FX-8350 is selling for less than $200), it's a great time to compare value-oriented chips in our favorite titles. We're also breaking out a test that conveys the latency between...

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 inside! 86...

AMD has the clock rate on its side. But Intel's Ivy Bridge architecture boasts superior IPC throughput. We pit the 4.2 GHz FX-4170 against Intel's new 3.3 GHz Core i3-3220 in an effort to determine which CPU is the better buy for £95. Intel's Ivy...

As you may know, a while back, we came to some difficult realizations about the validity of our methods for testing PC gaming performance. In my article Inside the second: A new look at game benchmarking, we explained why the widely used...

That is the question, Intel's Core2Duo was very popular back in the days and still is. Furthermore according to Steam's survey half of steam gamers are still using a machine powered by a dual core processor. Fair enough, let's see how the Core2Duo E8400...

Let's have a good old school AMD vs Intel test featuring the performance in games. What we do is we take an AMD FX-4170 and test it against a Core i7-3770K with the most recent games at FullHD and max details as well as max Anti Aliasing. So let's see if...

It's been quite while since AMD released it's bulldozer processors. When they were launched we reviewed the FX-8150 and the FX-8120 octacore CPUs. These two processors haven't been able to convince because of their poor performance per MHz. Now we're...

Het is inmiddels geen geheim meer: op 4 juni introduceert Intel haar volgende generatie Core-processors, codenaam Haswell. Het is voor ons een goede reden om alle courante processors en ook een aantal oudere exemplaren opnieuw te testen met een geheel...

I primi processori dual-core non erano sfruttati appieno , perché la maggior parte delle applicazioni più comuni non era ottimizzata per usare più di un core, e questa realtà riguardava anche i videogiochi. D'altra parte programmare per sistemi...

Véritable cerveau de l’ordinateur, le processeur se doit d’être choisi avec le plus grand soin. En effet, si le nombre de fabricants de processeurs x86 grand public s’est réduit comme une peau de chagrin au fil des ans, la quantité de modèles...

Abbiamo familiarità con le architettura Bulldozer e Ivy Bridge, quindi ciò che abbiamo visto non è particolarmente sorprendente . Le applicazioni single-thread eccellono sul chip di Intel, mentre quelle in grado di mettere sotto torchio i quattro core...

AMDs neue Prozessorkerne sind da – aber erst ein Teil davon. Denn der Vollausbau basierend auf den „Piledriver“-Kernen sieht anders als bei den aktuellen „Trinity“ auch einen bis zu 8 MByte großen L3-Cache vor. Darauf basierend werden dann die...
