SimHQ thought it would be of interest to our readers if we were to take an in-depth look at how Falcon 4 performs on AMD and Intel's new dual-core parts with some direct comparison benchmarking. In addition, we included high-end single-core processors from both companies to see how they would fare against the dual cores in both Falcon 4 and several non-threaded games.
IBM Corp. planned to reveal key details of its highly anticipated "Cell" microprocessors Wednesday as part of the company's effort to support open-source computing designs.
This year has seen the arrival of many new interesting technologies such as PCI Express and DDR2. Yet to this day SLI still remains by far the most hyped about technology. SLI was designed by NVIDIA and allows two select graphics cards to work together. The results have been good, leaving us to wonder who really does offer the best SLI performance, AMD or Intel.
While Apple Computer Inc.'s new embrace of Intel Corp. microprocessors leaves IBM in the cold, the news really isn't bad for Big Blue, which may have found the Apple account more trouble than it was worth.
Lenovo Monday unveiled a version of the ThinkPad X41 laptop device that incorporates a Tablet PC functionality.
AMD, it is trapped in a vicious circle of supply and demand. AMD wants to supply its chips, but OEMs need enough quantity to cover the millions of PCs they retail annually.
When Intel Corp. site location managers gather later this year to decide where they want to build their next $2 billion chip manufacturing plant, they'll have no shortage of prospects looking for their business.
NVIDIA, however, has released its new drivers that include some interesting features. In addition to Xinerama and OpenGL 2.0 support, CoolBits also accompanies this latest package. For those who haven't heard of or never used CoolBits, this is a NVIDIA overclocking utility for Microsoft Windows (until now) which could be enabled by a simple registry tweak and allows the user to substantially increase their VPU and memory speeds
The use of booth babes in trade shows is nothing new. However, Computex uses booth babes for more than just decoration. Unlike other trade shows where the girls just stand around and look good, the babes are Computex can be divided into four working groups.
From the same people that brought you Build an $800 Gaming PC, now present The Kitchen PC. "A sprinkle of this and a spinkle of that..."
Graphics manufacturer to present its new chip and give live demonstrations at San Francisco launch event in three weeks.
We know how you feel. Your computer is getting a little long in the tooth, and you just can't play the latest games anymore. Can we turn eight C-notes into a gaming system worth its salt and build a forward-looking platform for future expansion at the same time?
Industry's first double-gate transistor model enables smaller, more powerful silicon products that use less energy opening the door for the design of new generations of novel microchips.
Day one of Computex has already been quite eventful; we've seen yet another working R520 demo performing some impressive H.264 GPU acceleration, as well as motherboards based on NVIDIA's new C51G. All that and much more in this Computex article...
NVIDIA announced that their entire line of NVIDIA nForce media and communications processors for AMD64 platforms fully support the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor.
Statistical information on injuries related to notebook computer use is scarce, but doctors report a steady stream of new patients who've overdone it on the machines.
Even if ATI Crossfire defeats SLI, Nvidia has some secret horses for a new race. It is working on something that we know as SLI 2.
First look: Two processors in one Athlon chip give performance extra oomph. You now have a choice of dual-core processors; and based on PC World tests, the winner is clearly AMD's new Athlon 64 X2.
ATI's MultiVPU solution dubbed the Crossfire will see its official debut tomorrow, but has it been worth the wait and how does it compare to NVIDIA's?
Tomorrow, AMD will launch its first processors operating with “two brains” for desktop PCs, five days after its bigger rival Intel unveiled its own dual-core line-up.
