Last month we shone a spotlight on Intel with a history of the company's most notable processors. This month it's AMD's turn, as we summarize the last 25 years of AMD's CPUs.
Our German lab recently bought itself an AMD Athlon 64 2000+ processor, which only consumes 8 W of power. Clearly, this would make for a good face-off against Intel's energy-efficient Atom.
We've seen a lot of Intel CPUs, but a few are real stand-outs. We pick 15 of the most memorable in anticipation of Nehalem, expected to be Intel's next big landmark.
Originally developed for use in nettops, the Atom is now available for desktops. But how economical is the little platform, and is it powerful enough to handle daily work requirements?
A new processor, chipset, graphics core and wireless networking module help Intel justify a new generation of Centrino branding, but are the changes significant enough to warrant an upgrade?
Intel's Atom is designed for portable devices. We look at the technology behind the Atom, and at the CPU's power consumption and performance.
Our new component charts may not be perfect (we're working on that), but they're still full of useful information. Click here for our quick access guide.
After a long wait, we are able to add AMD processors to our Notebook CPU Charts and look a bit into future upcoming AMD and Intel launches.
As far as performance is concerned, AMD is lagging behind its competitor Intel. But, other than gamers, few users care only about performance.
What brings better results, purchasing a faster graphics card or investing your cash in a more powerful processor?
We compare three and four core AMD Phenom X CPUs, along with a large number of Athlon 64 X2 and Intel Core 2 two and four core models.
The past 19 months haven't been easy for the green team from Sunnyvale. Lately, there have been persistent rumors that AMD has become an acquisition target. What's really going on?
Memory resident software can provide a level of security, but it can always be altered. We show you how special hardware on the motherboard works to shield PCs from a variety of threats.
