Better late than never, maybeIntel has released their fifth-generation Core processor for the desktop. Is it the new performance king, a killer overclocking chip, or a product in need of a market?
Surely it follows that with a new chipset should come new chips, right? And with Intel’s latest motherboard chipset, the Z97, having just launched promising support for both the Devil’s Canyon Haswell update and the next-gen Broadwell die-shrink, it’s hugely disappointing not to be sat here extolling the virtues of some fine new processors too.But what can the new Z97 chipset offer in this
Here I am testing out this here machine from Palicomp, with effectively a year-old spec, and it's right up there with the best gaming PCs around.
After having tried to make me care about all-in-one PCs at GDC (sorry guys, I just can’t), Intel have announced a bunch of new processor toys that are on their way either this year or next. From Haswell, to Broadwell, to Haswell-E, we’re looking at a raft of new chips for our machines. First up we’ll be seeing a bunch of new Haswell parts, code-named Devil’s Canyon. They’ll be slightly
At this year's Consumer Electronics Show AMD officially introduced their latest, groundbreaking APU, code-named Kaveri.
The chip is built using a whole new production process that shrinks Haswell's 22nm transistors down to 14nm. That is tiny.
Good lord, that’s a striking mobo. It’s also a pretty impressively performing board too, built for the new generation of processor from Intel, the 4th Generation Core architecture, previously code-named Haswell. It’s also one of the first boards I’ve looked at outside of the expensive Intel own brand mobo that was shipped me with the inaugural i7 Haswell review CPU. The most obvious thing
Intel are heralding their new Haswell processor architecture as a game-changer for gaming ultrabooks and small form factor gaming machines.
So yeah, Intel’s 4th Generation Core architecture, known to you and I as Haswell, has finally landed and with it the new processor for your next gaming PC has surely arrived. Hasn’t it? Well, if your next gaming PC is going to be a laptop then that’s probably a rather effusive yes. If you’re a desktop gamer looking for more processing grunt and some hefty overclocking prowess from this stellar
The new 4th Gen Core processors from Intel are set to touch down around Computex time next month and in preparation Asus have announced their full line-up of Z87 motherboards. Along with a new range of gold-colouring on their standard Z87 boards, the real interesting stories are coming from the TUF (The Ultimate Force...sigh) and RoG (Republic of Gamers) ranges. For the first time we’re going
Haswell is primarily designed as a mobile CPU, so Intel want new processors to deliver improved graphics performance at reduced power demand.
Processor giant Intel is living it up in San Francisco at GDC, speaking to games developers, announcing new graphics technologies.
Asus have dropped a few teaser images of their upcoming Gryphon and Z87-Deluxe motherboards on the Republic of Gamers minisite.
Rumours have surfaced from Taipei that Intel will be launching its new processors, with their funky new architecture, on June 2nd this year.
Chinese site VR-Zone has posted up a leaked datasheet purporting to display the full details of the upcoming Haswell i5 and i7 lineups.
There have been rumours floating around for the last couple days that Intel is going to end the traditional socketed CPU once Haswell is out of the door.
