Only Fools and Horsepower.
Mechanical, RGB, and low-profile? Tesoro thinks you really can have it all.
May make Spectre exploitation easier.
Nokia has slimmed down its flagship phone and clad it in metal.
Antec's latest CPU cooler is an all-in-one water-cooling kit; we find out if it can beat the heat.
We see if AMD's fastest, most overclockable CPU can topple Intel's Core i5 and Core i7 ranges.
The i7-950 has crashed in price over the last month. Is this enough to make the i7-930 obsolete?
The original Core i7-920 is the best selling high-end CPU, but as it's now nearing its 18-month birthday Intel has decided it's due for retirement. We check out its replacement, the i7-930. Clocked at 2.8GHz, it's only 133MHz faster than the i7-920 - but thanks to overclocking, it's still the chip to buy.
Asus challenged us to test the fact that its P6TD Deluxe can overclock a Core i7-920 D0 to 4GHz - and run it overclocked, all day, everyday. We put its claims to the test, and show you BIOS settings so you can get the same results at home.
AMD has launched its fastest desktop CPU ever, the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition. With an improved manufacturing process making it more tolerant of high voltages, is this the most overclockable Phenom ever?
Intel launches the fastest processor ever in the shape of the Core i7-975 Extreme Edition. With the new D0 stepping, it's a great overclocker, but there's a price to match that makes the CPU of limited appeal. Still, expect this CPU to be breaking all the benchmark records for the next six months.
COMPUTEX 09: Despite Intel giving us the smiles yesterday, bit-tech has seen confirmed roadmaps of the future of Core i7.
COMPUTEX 09: Intel makes the claim that the popular Core i7 920 won't be discontinued and what Lynnfield WON'T be called.
COMPUTEX 09: Intel is planning to discontinue a number of Core i7 CPUs almost as soon as it releases Lynnfield on September 1st.
As the months roll on, Core i7 motherboards are coming closer to what most people would consider affordable. We take a look at MSI's X58 Pro to find out if taking the cheaper option will leave you short-changed in the way of performance and features.
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?
Way ahead of schedule, More Computers here in the UK has already listed AMD's next generation Phenom II processors.
With everything else tested, we put our math cap on and cracked out the calculators to work out which platform is the best punt for your pound. Does the supreme Core i7 performance warrant the extra cost it demands? Read on to find out!
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.
