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.

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen

What to expect when you’re expecting AMD Zen While the leaks haven’t been confirmed as genuine, it was interesting to see the conversation around Zen and AMD’s expected performance level.Then, at an event on Wednesday, AMD showed some demos of Zen running clock-for-clock against Intel’s 5960X.

Intel Core i5 vs. Core i7: Which processor should you buy?

Intel Core i5 vs. Core i7: Which processor should you buy? ) Older Core i5 / Core i7 chips top out at 32GB of RAM, but Skylake raises this to 64GB for both types of processor.To compare performance between the Core i5 and Core i7 families, I turned to Anandtech’s excellent CPU Bench database.

Chips, ahoy: Intel joins Delphi-Mobileye self-driving collaboration

Chips, ahoy: Intel joins Delphi-Mobileye self-driving collaboration This week Intel joined Delphi and Mobileye in a partnership that would produce the sensor components and autonomous driving software, some of it embedded on Intel chips, that would let automakers create self-driving cars.The self-drive technology package would be turned over to automakers in 2019, with the expectation vehicles would go on sale a year or two later.

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7

New leaked benchmarks show AMD's Ryzen going toe-to-toe with Intel's Core i7 4GHz base clock that AMD has promised for top-end Ryzen cores, so if we assume a modest boost clock of 3.6GHz it means final test results should be somewhat higher than what we see below.

With Kaby Lake, Intel finally brings Hyper-Threading to its Pentium-branded processors

With Kaby Lake, Intel finally brings Hyper-Threading to its Pentium-branded processors Last week, we reviewed Intel’s Core i7-7700K and discussed the details on the Kaby Lake refresh cycle, including Intel’s new Core i3, i5, and i7 processors.The CPU giant announced multiple new Pentium-class CPUs based on Kaby Lake, including the first Pentium SKUs to feature Hyper-Threading since Intel retired the Pentium 4.

The PC market just fell for the fifth straight year as unit shipments continue to decline

The PC market just fell for the fifth straight year as unit shipments continue to decline Total PC sales in 2011, for comparison, were 365 million units, or 1.“The broad PC market has been static as technology improvements have not been sufficient to drive real market growth.
