- The CPU is still one of the most important components of our PC and now also smartphones and tablets. With more and more components integrated directly into the CPU itself its a product category with many interesting angles to take a closer look at. The CPU is evolving and we continue to follow the developments from the first row in the test labs.

Barely 18 months ago chip manufacturer Intel released the latest "Tock" in its "Tick Tock"-strategy. The changes it brought includes the today well-known Nehalem and Bloomfield architectures. With four cores and two threads per core most enthusiasts with the money to spend were satisfied with the performance offered. The CPU's were packaged for the 1366 socket, which means a fairly expensive solution with Intel's X58 chipset as the only alternative and three DDR3 channels. At launch the flagship was Core i7 965, today everything changes.
Published on Wednesday, 23 September 2009 00:10 Written by Anton Karmehed, Jonas Klar, Robert KihlbergIntel has launched its second version of Nehalem architecture. With Lynnfield it targets the mid-range and performance segment. We see how Lynnfield stands up to big brother Bloomfield and AMD's Phenom II architecture.
Published on Tuesday, 11 November 2008 21:04 Written by Robert KihlbergWhile waiting for the Nehalem platform to launch, Intel has updated its 45nm Wolfdale core from C0 to E0 stepping. We have taken a closer look at what the new stepping has to offer in terms of overclocking and power consumption.
Published on Saturday, 15 March 2008 00:39 Written by Robert KihlbergWe take a closer look at Intel's new processor flagship with everything from detailed power consumption tests to extensive overclocking. The most expensive processor on the market certainly has a lot to offer.
Published on Monday, 28 January 2008 00:30 Written by Robert KihlbergWe've put Intel's first 45nm processor in the test bench to see what the new Yorkfield core brings in terms of performance and overclocking potential. Extreme is the word...

In this article we will dig deeper with a long series of benchmarks that will give us clearcut evidence of when and how much the L2 cache of the Core architecture plays a significant role.

We test and investigate where this model fits with and how much bang for the buck it offers. The focus is on what seems to be its greatest advantage, namely overclocking.
Published on Thursday, 02 November 2006 10:22 Written by Robert KihlbergIntel has now launched its first processor with four cores and the new flagship Core 2 Extreme QX6700 has been in our test lab to endure our procedures. We take a closer look at Intel's quad-core architecture and how the new processor performs.
Published on Saturday, 26 August 2006 17:08 Written by Robert KihlbergWe've already reviewed Intel's new Core architecture so this time it about overlocking and just overclocking and who would be better suited than our very own OC guru Robert "crotale" Kihlberg.
Published on Sunday, 06 August 2006 14:31 Written by Robert KihlbergIntel Core has in a very short time been able to steal all focus in Intel's processor assortment and the reason for this is quite simple. Core is an extremely promising architecture and we've taken a closer look at the Core 2 Duo family to see what it has to offer.
Published on Sunday, 21 May 2006 19:14 Written by Robert KihlbergAMD is upon one of its greatest platform launches in a very long time and just the fact that Socket AM2 uses a, to AMD, completely new memory technology makes it extra interesting. We have taken a closer look at what to expect from Socket AM2 and its DDR2 support.
Published on Tuesday, 10 January 2006 18:45 Written by Robert KihlbergWe have taken a closer look at the first Athlon 64 FX processor with dual cores. FX-60 has to stand up to AMD's earlier flagship but also Intel's new nya dual core monster, Pentium Extreme Edition 955.
