With a little bit of luck, AMD will launch its Ryzen processor lineup on February 28 during its Capsaicin event at the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC) and put to rest all the rumors and speculation. Barring that, we'll have to wait until sometime early next month, as AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su previously indicated. Either way, the leaks will continue to flow in the meantime. Using information that has already been leaked, a reddit forum member who goes by "Nestledrink" put together a handy chart showing how AMD could disrupt the market by undercutting Intel at nearly every turn. There is a lot of... Read more...
The leaks surrounding AMD's not-yet-released Ryzen processor family are coming in fast and furious, with only weeks to go before launch. In just the past week alone we've seen what is supposed to be AMD's full Ryzen lineup spanning 17 SKUs, along with core/thread counts and TDP ratings for each chip. In some cases we've even seen clock speeds and pricing info. Now we can add Ryzen benchmark scores from SiSoftware's official ranking database for its SANDRA suite.SANDRA (System ANalyzer, Diagnostic and Reporting Assistant) is a popular program that has been in active development for many years. It... Read more...
Razer is back at it again, updating another member of its popular gaming laptop family. Today, we present to you the new Razer Blade 14-inch gaming laptop which is powered by Intel’s new seventh generation Kaby Lake processors. More specifically, the laptop features Intel’s Core i7-7700HQ quad-core processor that has a base frequency of 2.8GHz and can crank it all the way up to 3.8GHz. 16GB of 2400MHz DDR4 memory is included, while the 14-inch display is available in 1920x1080 or 4K UHD (3840x2160) resolutions. No matter which display option you choose, it will be backed by NVIDIA’s Pascal graphics... Read more...
If you already own a fast 6th Generation Intel Core processor, otherwise known as Skylake, you might not be all that compelled to build a system around Intel's 7th Generation Kaby Lake line. Kaby Lake could be thought of as sort of a stop-gap solution, or midlife kicker product to fill the void created by Cannonlake's delay. This next generation Intel CPU architecture is expected to have a bigger impact on performance. How big, you ask? Intel claims Cannonlake will deliver more than a 15 percent performance boost over Kaby Lake.Update, 2/12/17 - We've updated this article with a slide from Intel's... Read more...
AMD is going to release its first batch of highly anticipated Ryzen processors to retail in just a few more weeks. Many questions will be answered at that time, including the big one that is one everyone's mind—how much will these new processors cost? Well, you might not have to wait to find out. An online shop seems to have jumped the gun by listing a few of AMD's Ryzen processors, complete with pricing information. The online vendor supposedly spilling the beans is ShopBLT. It listed three Ryzen SKUs, all of which are part of the Ryzen 7 series. They include the Ryzen 7 1800X, Ryzen 7 1700X,... Read more...
AMD has shared a spattering of technical details about its Ryzen architecture, though most of the information to this point has focused on technologies such as Precision Boost and Neural Net Prediction. More recently however, AMD released a paper with some finer grain details, one of which is that Ryzen processors will sport a 10 percent smaller die area than Intel's Kaby Lake processors.Both Ryzen and Kaby Lake are manufactured on a 14nm node process, but the die area for Ryzen is 44mm2, compared to 49mm2 for Kaby Lake. No big deal, right? Perhaps not, though the theoretical advantage of having... Read more...
In about a month from now, AMD will release its Ryzen processor lineup, which could be as many as 17 processors spanning quad-core, six-core, and eight-core SKUs. If things go to plan, Ryzen will return AMD to its glory days as a competitor in the enthusiast market. The question is, how will Intel respond? One strategy the Santa Clara chipmaker might employ is to try and steal some of AMD's thunder by striking first with new Kaby Lake processors.Our crystal ball is undergoing maintenance at the moment, but in its place are a bunch of rumors and supposedly leaked information. What some of them point... Read more...
If you’re a fan of ThinkPad P Series, and have been looking for follow-ups to the P70, P50 and P50s, Lenovo is ready to deliver with a comprehensive refresh. So today, we present to you the ThinkPad P71, P51 and P51s. The ThinkPad P71 is the biggest and baddest monster of the bunch, strutting its stuff with a 17-inch display. That dominant display can be had in FHD (1080p) or 4K UHD (3840x2160) resolutions. The 7.6-pound mobile workstation is powered by either Intel’s Xeon E3-v6 series or Intel seventh generation Kaby Lake Core i7 processors. As for graphics, you can equip the notebook with up...

Enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the arrival of AMD’s new Ryzen processors, which are scheduled to hit store shelves early next month. While we won’t find out all of the juicy details surrounding Ryzen until closer to launch, one bit of good news leaked out over the weekend that should be music to the ears of enthusiasts and businesses that still have a kung fu grip on Windows 7. AMD recently revealed at an information session that it is working on drivers that will add official Ryzen (and AM4 platform) support to Microsoft’s still-popular Windows 7 operating system. Microsoft is not taking it... Read more...

Intel has been gradually rolling out its 7th generation Kaby Lake-based Core series processors for an array of computing platforms, from desktops to notebooks and 2-in-1 hybrid devices. We've shown you what Kaby Lake can do for enthusiast and gamer desktop platforms. We've even recently explored optimizing its price/performance ratio through overclocking, and of course, Kaby Lake notebooks led Intel's charge starting in the summer of last year.What we haven't gotten a chance to look at yet is Intel's lowest powered Kaby Lake variant, known as Kaby Lake-Y. Kaby Lake-Y is the the 4.5 -... Read more...
It looks like Pioneer will be the first company to release a line of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray drives for PCs. Pioneer in Japan announced two models that are expected to go on sale later this month, both of which stick to the standard half-height 5.25-inch optical disc drive form factor. However, both also require Windows 10, at least 6GB of system memory, and a Kaby Lake processor. The two models are the BDR-S11J-BK and BDR-S11J-X. They've very similar to one other, with the higher end BDR-S11J-X sporting a paint job that's better at dissipating heat, low resistance flat cable, anti-vibration components,... Read more...
Intel did something interesting when it launched its Kaby Lake-based series of 7th generation Core i processors recently. Tucked away in the product line-up, alongside quad-core speedsters like the Core i7-7700K, was a new, relatively low-priced Core i3 processor, which also happened to be unlocked for more flexible overclocking. Most previous-gen Core i3 processors were multiplier locked, which limited overclocking to only BCLK adjustments. The Core i3-7350K is a dual-core processor, with support for Intel’s Hyper Threading technology, so it can process up to 4 threads simultaneously. As the “K”... Read more...
According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the limitations surrounding the MacBook Pro’s support for greater than 16GB of RAM will be lifted this year. Apple is expected to adopt Kaby Lake processors (months after the PC community quickly embraced them), and at the same time offer a 32GB RAM option. This will likely be a build-to-order option for the MacBook Pro, but it’d be a welcome addition for mobile professionals. Interestingly, Kuo says that the 32GB option will apparently be limited to the larger 15-inch model, and will not be available on the 13-inch model. Apple is expected to begin production...
