Carrizo vs. Kaveri: Which low-end AMD CPU is a better buy?

Carrizo vs. Kaveri: Which low-end AMD CPU is a better buy? When AMD launched its Carrizo CPU refresh last year, it made it clear that the chip would focus almost entirely on notebooks rather than desktops.The big-picture takeaway on Carrizo versus Kaveri at the CPU level is this: There’s a solid group of tests where Carrizo shows real efficiency improvements over Kaveri.

Happy 10th birthday to Intel’s Core 2 Duo

Happy 10th birthday to Intel’s Core 2 Duo Ten years ago today, Intel launched the Core 2 Duo.The roots of the Core 2 Duo go back much farther than 2006, though, to the P6 (Pentium Pro) architecture that Intel launched in 1995.

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver

AMD Zen benchmarks leak, point to potent performance against Intel, huge gains over Piledriver Now, thanks to some leaked benchmarks and sleuthing at WCCFTech, we’ve got our first glance at how AMD’s Zen engineering samples perform against other hardware in Ashes of the Singularity.This last point is extremely significant, because it’s common for prototype chips and engineering samples to offer less performance than the final version.

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core

A state of Zen: AMD unveils new architectural details on its latest CPU core One CPU complex (CCX) contains four cores, 2MB of L2 cache (512KB per core), and 8MB of L3 cache.That means AMD’s highest-end consumer Zen contains eight cores and 16MB of L3 cache in total, split into 2x8MB chunks.

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter

Nvidia absolutely crushes its quarterly earnings, has its first $2 billion quarter Other sources, like Quadro, grew a modest 9%, but nothing like the leap that gaming GPUs saw.Data center revenue grew by 59% as well, though this was much smaller in absolute terms ($230 million in data center sales, versus over $1 billion in gaming revenue).
