amd fusion apu trinity tested
CPU -- so so (still tweaking)
GPU -- over 50% improvement and more ...

ivy bridge board handles quad channel @ 2133++ easy.

link:--> ... husiast%29

8gb singledimm module @ 1600 mhz slashed by half (at least where i stay). Also gigabyte 990 boards disappear from market.

Also techpowerup states gtx 680 as worlds fastest...(???)

So much for new junk ware , i wonder who will bother to upgrade as most of it is " tock "technology.

Except for those trinity apu's which can be an overkill for the price (HD radeon 7660k, 4mb l3 cache). :vil2_pipe

checkout anandtech it clearly shows beating the 7970 and even 6990 in some
pretty decent load power usage..... ... -review/13

Haswell holds the GPU promise for Intel to enter the graphics market with rigour. ... ce-gt-650m.

AMD on the other hand has blasted through a mountain with its APU's(Accelerated Processing Unit).
AMD APU's are radical elements in the computing world which adheres to standards for maximum profits.
So much so its now going to be used in the next Playstation 4. ... -rumoured/ ... at-1-23tf/

Samsung Galaxy S-IV to have a pseudo octa-core Exynos chip. ... 18728.html

The rumoured APU is the A10 which will be based on trinity or steamroller cores with AMD's next gen GCN (Graphics Core Next) architecture with 8000 series Radeon. It is touted to be 50% more powerful than the xbox 720 in raw computational power. Again the xbox 720 will use Radeon 8770 for its graphics component. ... cture.aspx

As experience has shown it does not matter what hardware is being used but having sufficient resources coupled with a software dev team hacking away is what makes the difference. You could run any modern game on a pentium 4/ pentium D if people were paid for hacking away the software to literally exploit the hardware. Software always makes the difference. With modern computers many times powerful than these next gen consoles proves that brute-force hardware 'must' be required for the palsy state of modern commercial software and hardware pusher's doing their bit...........

Intel is not far behind and is catching up fast ...but not in the usual raw power cpu arena but other spectrum's. Intel's Atom class of CPU's will eventually reach a
performance stage where it could dominate, adding to that its the cheapest production chips intel can sell for the lowest price to the consumer means, the future is going to be highly purpose-bound. So even gamers would one day buy Atom chips because it makes absolute sense.

Today on junkware news:

Intel Haswell is on track with the Core i7 4770k. A 22nm tock chip. It does not bring any perks to any power user with modestly good hardware. Besides being the latest and greatest the sole purpose is benchmarks.

With chips like these, the distinction and spectrum of powerful computing widens even more..... You dont need to
drive an expensive ferrari or lambhorgini on a city road when a Honda or Hyundai do it just fine.

Completing in a little over 4mins ---32M superpi---clocked at 6.7 Ghz under LN2: ... _at_6.7ghz

Other news: Gskill releases 3Ghz DDR3(double data rate at 1.5Ghz) in a kit of 8GBx4. Something that is extremely impressive. ... reme_speed

DDR4 eludes any sensible computing. Besides increasing bandwidth, reducing power usage across a wide usage spectrum its performance perks is high class glamour. High clock speeds after 1600Mhz clearly proves the usual regressive state --that you dont need high freq ram to open word documents and play games.

The biggest benefits of such high clock speeds on RAM's is the absolute benefit to the AMD APU's . These chips just love and lust for high speed memory.

With AMD currently working on GDDR6 and set for a release date sometime next year (2014), its about time
display manufacturers and partners realize that FullHD is officially obsolete. :roll:
