The upcoming flagship consumer processor based on Intel’s Haswell architecture will be the Core i7-4770K. It looks like Tom’s Hardware has one one hand and has already run it through quite a few different benchmarks and tests. They are comparing it directly to the Core i7-3770K “Ivy Bridge” processor and the Core i7-2700K “Sandy Bridge” processor. Read on to see some of the benchmarks.+Continue Reading
Intel’s next big launch is their 4th generation Haswell processors. We actually got a demo of the built-in graphics on the chip at CES, but that was it. No firm release date, we were just told, “later in the year”. It seems like DigiTimes has the scoop from an insider that the Haswell CPUs will launch on June 2 to be showcased during Computex (June 4-8).+Continue Reading
The word Sandy Bridge is what we have been hearing for the past 3 months. In forums, on different websites and even on the news. Sandy Bridge is the codename for Intel’s new 32nm processor architecture. This new architecture brings on-die graphics to a whole new level and still has all of the same features we saw on the Nehalem architecture. It adds even more with Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, Intel Quick Sync Video, Intel InTru 3D, and AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions) instructions. With this new architecture Intel is releasing 11 desktop processors, we will be taking the Core i5-2500K through the paces, read on to check it out!+Continue Reading

For 2010, Intel has introduced a new line of processors code named “Clarkdale”, and will be known as the Core i5 600 series. At this point there are four processors in this series, the 650, the 660, the 670, and the 661. Today I will be looking at the Intel Core i5 661, a dual core LGA 1156 processor built in the 32nm process, with on-die video processing. This should make it a natural for HTPC and non-gaming rigs. How will the i5 661 fare with this geek who has had the honor of reviewing some of the most powerful video cards in the world? Read on to see!+Continue Reading
