Clock for clock, Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge CPUs could be as much as 17 per cent faster than the last generation of Sandy Bridge processors.
Fudzilla has been perusing some data that seems to suggest internal tests comparing the equally clocked i7 2600 and the new i7 3770, the Ivy Bridge hardware – which sports four cores, eight threads and 8MB of cache – was between seven and 16 per cent faster.
According to the report, the lowest difference between the two was found when benchmarking ProShow 4.5 when operating a slide show. However, the 16 per cent results showed up when testing Excel 2010. Other software used includes: Sysmark 2012, HDXPRT 2011 and [...]
AMD has announced that their line up of 7 Bulldozer FX CPUs, two quad, four eight and one six cores, are set to be released around mic October, with Fudzilla speculating that it will be the 12th.
The big boy for the lineup is AMD FX 8150 which has a TDP of a 125W and a core clock of 3.6GHz core clock, turbo clocked to 4.2GHz. It’s smaller brother, the AMD FX 8120, comes with respective clocks of 3.1GHZ and 4.0GHZ, it’s TDP running at the same 125W. Apparently a similarly clocked version will launch further down the line with its wattage use dropped to 95w.
The next chip in line is the AMD FX 6100, is a 95W six-core part with a base clock of 3.3GHz though [...]
