More than 15 Haswell-based laptop processors were introduced by Intel this week, which allowed the company to refresh all mobile families beginning from Celeron and up to Core i7. Alongside the mobile chips, the company also released Core i3-4110E, i3-4112E , i5-4410E and i5-4422E embedded CPUs, planned as a replacement for the Core i3-4100E, i3-4102E, i5-4400E and i5-4402E respectively. The new processors feature 200 MHz higher operating frequencies.   [Full story]
AMD is expected to launch "Beema" mobile APUs this year. "Beema" is is the third generation ULV core, that will succeed current "Kabini" core, however it will still make use of 28nm technology. "Beema" accelerated units will have up to 4 CPU cores, GCN graphics, and integrated Security Processor. According to AMD estimates, the APUs will have much better performance per Watt, up to 104%, than "Kabini" products. The actual TDP will depend on SKU, and it will range from 10 Watt to 25 Watt.   [Full story]
Earlier this week Intel added information on "Haswell Refresh" processors to their official pricelist. It is suffice to say that there were no unexpected surprises there, and the new SKUs had exact same prices as the first generation Haswell microprocessors. Although the list included the full line of "Haswell Refresh" desktop CPUs, they will be available only in May, due to their release date being tied to the launch of desktop 9-series chipset. The mobile refresh, on another hand, will work with currently available 8-series mobile chipsets, and for that reason we were not surprised to see new mobile processors in Intel's product database.   [Full story]
Czech website Tyden.cz have published rumored specs for the Maxwell based GTX 880 graphics card. While some of these specs look reasonable on paper, they don't all look like an upgrade compared to the GTX 780 and 780 Ti. There is another rumor that suggests this is not intended as a replacement for the GTX 780 or 780 Ti, suggesting it is more a replacement for the GTX 680.   [Full story]
Intel today added brief specifications and prices of all "Haswell Refresh" desktop and mobile microprocessors to the official pricelist. Built on "Haswell" architecture, upcoming products will not have any new microarchitecture and power optimizations compared to last year's products, and their only advantage will be slightly increased clock speeds. According to known specifications, many "Haswell Refresh" CPUs will be clocked 100 MHz higher than the Haswell 2013 lineup, which will result in up to 2% - 5% better performance, much smaller than we got used to in the past three years.   [Full story]
AMD this week launched low power desktop platform utilizing socket AM1, formerly known as a "socket FS1B". The socket AM1 processors are built on "Kabini" core, which combines "Jaguar" CPU architecture and "Graphics Core Next" GPU architecture, and integrates it all together with all necessary chipset logic on a single system-on-a-chip (SoC). The SoCs have 2 and 4 CPU cores, and the graphics unit comes with 128 shader cores. Feature-wise, new "Kabini" processors are similar to mobile Kabini products with the exception of somewhat higher clocks, and a new PGA type packaging, that simplifies processor upgrade or replacement.   [Full story]
