Whenever Intel releases a new processor architecture, it typically focuses first on consumers and then rolls out Xeon counterparts that are suitable for entry-level workstations. So it goes with Kaby Lake. Having launched its first batch of desktop Kaby Lake chips for consumers just two months ago, Intel today announced its new Xeon E3-1200 V6 family based on the same architecture. To kick things off, it's launching eight Xeon E3-1200 V6 processors ranging in base clockspeed from 3GHz to 3.9GHz, all of which are quad-core processors. Six of them support Hyper Threading. Perhaps more importantly, these are mostly affordable chips—pricing starts at $193, and while the top-end part runs $612, the... Read more...
Lenovo is pitching the emerging interest in virtual reality as a reason for developers to consider its new ThinkStation P320 workstations. The world's top PC maker (in terms of market share) used Develop3D Live as the launchpad for its new systems, which featured Intel Xeon and 7th generation Core i3/i5/i7 (Kaby Lake) processor options paired with NVIDIA Quadro graphics. Buyers can opt for a full-tower enclosure supporting up to a Quadro P4000 (Pascal) graphics card, or a small form factor (SFF) setup with up to two Quadro P1000 GPUs. Either setup can be configured with an Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6 processor or a Core i3/i5/i7 chip based on Kaby Lake, with speeds of up to 4.5GHz via Turbo Boost.... Read more...

The rumor mill doesn't seem to rest for a single day lately. We learned yesterday that AMD will be releasing both 4GB and 8GB versions of its RX Vega graphics cards, and that it will also be releasing Vega for notebooks. Today we learn a little bit about Intel's next big thing: Kaby Lake X. Kaby Lake-X is going to represent the first chips available for Intel's upcoming X299 chipset for motherboard platforms, with Skylake-X chips with beefier specs to come later and ultimately supersede the current Broadwell-E chips. Thanks to SANDRA, the popular benchmarking tool from the folks at SiSoftware, we're getting an early glimpse of at least one of these upcoming Kaby Lake-X chips, the Core i7-7740K.... Read more...
Lately, Dell has been able to deliver notebooks that bring a smile to our faces, especially when a new XPS laptop slides across our desk. It hasn't always been that way, but since revamping the XPS line, starting with the XPS 13 back in 2015, Dell’s premium laptops have been leaders in the ultrabook market, especially in the 15 and 13-inch formats. The XPS 13 and its new 2-in-1 variant make great and highly portable workstations to tote around, but their smaller frames and relative horsepower may not be for everybody. That’s where the crossover to a 15-inch machine might make for a worthy trade-off. For a little more heft, the XPS 15 of yesteryear boasted a discrete GTX 960M onboard with... Read more...
If you are looking for a gaming PC with a sleek and small footprint, Corsair has your back. The company today announced its first “fully built gaming PC” and by all accounts, it looks like Corsair has hit it out of the park on the first swing. The Corsair One is a small form factor (SFF) machine that tries to maximize the use of off-the-shelf components (instead of custom fittings) so that upgrades down the road can be made with ease. Given that this is a Corsair product, you’ll find plenty of Corsair-branded components inside including an SF400 80 Plus Gold SFX power supply (SF500 80 Plus Gold SFX on top-ranging models), Vengeance LPX 2,400MHz memory, and Force LE SSDs in 240GB, 480GB or 960GB...

When it comes to supporting legacy operating systems on new hardware, Microsoft has just unleashed the mother of all nuclear options. We already knew that Microsoft and its hardware partners — namely Intel and AMD — will not provide official support for the newest generation of PC processors on operating systems released prior to Windows 10. “To achieve the highest confidence in the performance of our AMD Ryzen desktop processors, AMD validated them across two different OS generations, Windows 7 and 10,” said AMD with respect to Ryzen support. “However, only support and drivers for Windows 10 will be provided in AMD Ryzen desktop processor production parts.” Intel’s stance on the matter pretty...

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 information about Ryzen that is out in the wild, including model names of 17 SKUs, core counts, clockspeeds,... 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 recent investors meeting, which details this claim for Cannonlake specifically.. This is a...

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, and Ryzen 7 1700. If the accompanying prices turn out to be correct, Intel may want to rethink its Kaby... 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 a smaller die size is being able to carve out more processors from a single wafer. That means a lower... Read more...
