CPUs serve as the heart and soul of your desktop, notebook, and tablet. But with so many devices, power budgets, and performance requirements, it’s not always easy to pick the right hardware. From AMD to Intel and x86 to ARM, Tom’s Hardware has you covered.
We've seen how far Core i7 can overclock. Supposedly, Phenom II is supposed to do...phenomenally, as well. So which one is the better buy when the clocks get cranked? We're gunning to find out.
We like the MSI Wind Netbox, but it still is just a basic Intel Atom machine. For those desiring (a lot) more power, MSI has the elegantly named MS-9A08.
While this makes perfect sense for the consumer, where does AMD's graphics card business stand in this situation?
We go hands on with the ingenious MSI Wind Netbox. We like it.
Consumers looking for elite-level computing branded with a low-end price tag should look no further, as AMD today launched its "dragon" platform technology featuring the new AMD Phenom II X4 processor.
Like a smear of grape jelly on a peanut butter sandwich, Dell grabbed AMD's spotlight and announced that its upcoming XPS 625 desktop spread supports AMD's "Dragon" platform.
Some things have to be seen to be believed. At first, we weren’t particularly blown away by the idea of Nvidia’s Ion platform. But the near finalized platform now looks vastly more promising.
Can AMD finally recapture its former market lead with the Phenom II? We tested their new 45-nm CPU, which is compatible with AM2 motherboards. How do things look from performance, energy consumption and...
As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. However, Freescale Semiconductor's upcoming i.MX515 processor, based on the ARM chip architecture, should defy that belief, offering 1GHz speeds for under $200.
Acer definitely wins the prize for being first out the gate with a machine running Intel’s latest addition to its processor line up, the ultra cheap quad core Q9000. However, now that it’s all official and...
The netbook market what it is today, it’s no real surprise to hear companies are working on a chip in the hopes of grabbing some of the market share currently dominated by Intel’s Atom processor.
HP is reportedly in talks with Intel regarding the restrictions in place on the Atom processor.
During a recession people resign themselves to the fact that they’re going to have to cut down on some luxuries -- and more often than not, gadgets and hardware often find themselves a place on the list of...
Details of the recent layoffs and financial restructuring of Advanced Micro Devices’ are laid bare in a recent SEC filing. The filing shows the company laid off 600 people, 100 more than the initial figure of...
Visionman Computers has launched the very first server featuring Intel's Core i7 processor.
Just a couple of weeks before the introduction of its 45 nm Phenom II, AMD introduces a new dual-core chip. The Athlon X2 7000-series is basically a 65 nm Phenom with two active cores, but with the full L2 and...
Modern processors are capable of switching into power-efficient modes to save power when they’re idle, and an increasing number of motherboards offer dynamic features for the same purpose. Yet, the benefits...
Competitors at our Overdrive finals tweaked Intel's Core i7 through the weekend and achieved great results. But there was a dark horse in the race as well -- AMD's Phenom II.
Switching on the Turbo mode is required to sail around Intel's TDC and TDP safety limiters, but it also introduced some issues for the overclockers.
The Overdrive Overclocking Championship is all about overclocking Core i7 Extreme 965. Some teams collected results after only two hours, others are still optimizing. Check out our impressions of Day 1.
Intel has developed a high-speed silicon-based avalanche photodetector that can be manufactured cheaply, which could one day lead to optically-connected Intel processors
According to information revealed in a UBS report entitled 'Intel Atom : Netbook, Opportunity or Threat?', "Medfield" will be the successor of "Lincroft", part of the "Moorestown" platform, with a release...
AMD’s success in the mid-range GPU market isn’t going to be enough to compensate for the pummeling it’s gotten in the CPU market. AMD is warning Wall Street that its fourth-quarter 2008 prospects are even...
Following suit with our Intel road map back in September of this year, Intel has has launched the last Quad-Core that consumers may see for the next while, if more are to come at all – The Q8300.
According to Via's processor roadmap, dual-core Nano processors are planned to go into mass production starting June 2010
German teams edge past U.S. overclockers by just a few clock cycles more.
