AMD launches five new AM3 CPUs today complete with DDR3-1333 support, as well as backward compatability with DDR2.
Team Finland - with a little help from AMD - has snatched the 3DMark 05 crown with a liquid helium cooling system helping a Phenom II to hit 6.5GHz.
AMD has annouced that it is to cut CPU production to below demand, to create shortages and avoid a backlog of parts building up in the channel.
Microsoft disappointed investors yesterday with a below-expectations earnings report - and has embarked on a cost-cutting programme that will see 5,000 jobs eliminated.
AMD has sold its hand-held graphics division, which designed the Imageon range of graphics processors, to Qualcomm for $65 million.
Within hours of Intel cutting its processor prices, AMD has responded by trimming the prices for its new 45nm Phenom II CPUs.
AMD's 45nm consumer CPUs are finally here: the Phenom II X4 940 and 920 are the latest quad cores with bigger cache, more MHz, more overclocking potential and yet, still AM2+ with inexpensive DDR2! Does Intel finally have some worthy competition?
We've seen the raw numbers but what about the overclocking potential? How much value does this add to an expensive platform? Equipped with the latest performance motherboards we strapped in an i7 920 under a huge Thermalright heatsink to find out.
From top to bottom we review and compare the latest processors in Intel's performance line-up and stack all three up against the previous generation from both Intel and AMD to find out where exactly the improvements lie and if they are worth your money.
If you're a prolific multi-tasker but you want something that runs cool, there's very little on offer. That was until AMD recently launched its latest quad-core processor - the Phenom X4 9350e, which sports a maximum TDP of just 65W.
We test the latest 45nm Intel Core 2 Duo "Wolfdale" E8500, E8400 and E8200 processors to see how they compare to other popular, sub £200 CPUs from Intel's 65nm Core 2 line and AMD's Athlon X2 and Phenom lines.
When your name is Intel and you're already winning the performance race, why stop there? The QX9770 has faster... everything. It uses an updated 1,600MHz front side bus, four 3.2GHz cores, a total of 12MB of L2 cache and it's a 45nm monster!
