  • Requires a new Socket 1155 motherboard
  • Overclockability and features entirely dependent on motherboard
  • Cougar Point systems still limited to 24 PCIe lanes
  • Intel's introduction of 28 new CPUs and 10 new chipsets potentially confusing to the consumer

  • Yes, it's still good – just the extent of its usefulness will depend on your use cases, as always. First of all, for anyone with an i7-2600K and trying to stretch it a bit longer, we can strongly recommend considering an overclock attempt. It's not too di...

  • This funny little review derived out of the fact that many of you guys in the forums often debate CPU bottlenecks, and refer to the fact that you are still playing games on a dated PC, like the one shown today. Back in the days, the Core i7 2600K was a ho...

  • The performance gains seen here are reminiscent of those seen when Intel launched its core2 architecture with the core2 duo series of processors. The 2nd generation of core processors does things faster, while guzzling less energy. They run cooler and ove...

  • Since then, despite the perseverance of (or soon to be mildly delayed) Moore's Law, performance is measured differently. Efficiency, core count, integrated SIMD graphics, heterogeneous system architecture and specific instruction sets are now used due to...

  • You may wonder why it took us so long to review the FX-8150? We received the processor last month and had to cover the Haswell Core i7-4770K first along with Computex 2013 which had put alot of load on me. But here we finally have the Bulldozer review and...
