Due to popular demand, we're looking into AMD's Threadripper 2990WX performance using Linux. We have the Threadripper 2990WX put against the Core i9-7980XE head to head using Windows 10 and Linux (Ubuntu) running the same benchmark tests.
Today we're going to have a bit of benchmark fun as we test out a processor we reviewed in 2010. The Core i7-980X was a hexacore beast, but how does it stack up 8 years later? To find out I'm going to compare it with a whole heap of modern processors, including the dinky little $100 Ryzen 3 2200G.
When Dell brought us the first Kaby Lake-G laptop to market we were very excited to see how the combo processor would perform. We've already gone through all the performance, now let's discuss whether it's actually worth buying the first Kaby Lake-G laptop: the Dell XPS 15 2-in-1.
Today we're taking a look at the impact addressing the Spectre 'Variant 4' CPU flaw has on Intel's 8th-gen Core CPUs. The initial Meltdown and Spectre patches didn't take care of everything and just recently Intel and Microsoft have rolled out updates to address Variant 4 a.k.a. 'Speculative Store Bypass'.
The SSD market can seem overwhelming at first glance, but we'll tell you, it is a great time to upgrade your storage considering ever-lower prices and two distinct segments that go from fast and relatively affordable to extremely fast and more costly solutions, which we're looking at today: NVMe solid storage.
Today we're finally bringing you the epic gaming battle between the Ryzen 7 2700X and Core i7-8700K that so many have been requesting. The flagship Ryzen packs 8 cores and 16 threads, while the i7-8700K offers two less cores for a 6 core/12 thread configuration, but at a higher frequency and with more room for overclocking.
Today, we're finally going to explore Kaby Lake G, one of the most unexpected and interesting pieces of hardware to come from Intel in a while. This is the first ever chip that combines an Intel CPU and AMD GPU onto the one piece of silicon, forming what is essentially the fastest APU-style processor on the market.
