It’s always a nuisance figuring out what you need to be upgrading to when the time comes.  Given the number of types available it takes a fair bit of research even to understand which ones are the candidates.  The article linked below simplifies it to this:

  • CPU (configuration), usually linked to a corresponding detailed review;
  • Number of cores/threads;
  • Normal core clock rate in GHz (this isn’t crucial anymore, but since many of you have requested it, here you go);
  • Motherboard used in tests;
  • RAM used in tests;
  • Link to some real-time prices.

Just when you thought your Quad core processor was man enough, it appears we are 2 months away from chips with 6…

Three processors from AMD, the Phenom II X6 1075T, 1055T and 1035T, will each adopt a 45nm process. AMD will also launch the quad-core Phenom II X4 960T alongside the six-core models, the sources noted.

If you are in the market for an upgrde to your PCs, this is a good place to start…

Today we find ourselves with very different and diversified offerings from both companies, that are not only cheaper but also significantly faster. Just take for example AMD’s Phenom II X4 945 that can be purchased for as little as $170, not to mention Intel’s most recent release, the Core i5 750, which is meant to crush its competitors offering top notch performance at the $199 price point.
