Overview of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 memory modules (HX424C15FBK4 / 32 and HX421C14FBK4 / 32) / Processors and memory

Together with one of the main novelties of the past year – the LGA2011-v3 platform and Haswell-E processors – the new memory, DDR4 SDRAM, also began to come into use. But, unlike fresh processors and motherboards, at the time of its appearance on the market this memory could not hit the public either with sky-high […]

preliminary review and testing / Processors and memory

<! – preliminary review and testing / Processors and memory | ] Of course, until there is no reliable evidence that Skylake will be able to offer better performance. However, most likely, this is exactly so. After all, as we have seen, Broadwell's design is largely limited and focused on energy efficiency, and Skylake, embodying […]

to what the progress has reached / Processors and memory

Announces at the opening of the Computex exhibition their new Broadwell processors in the LGA1150 version for desktop systems, Intel promised that they will be available in open sale within 30-60 days. This has convinced many that the release has all the signs of a “paper” and real appearance of desktop Broadwell on the shelves […]

unloved child / processors and memory

In early June, Intel released a new, fifth-generation desktop processor called Core, known by the code name Broadwell. Despite the fact that the new products became the first CPU for desktop systems manufactured using 14-nm technology, the event did not attract much attention. Intel did without conventional for such cases lush ceremonies and even greatly […]

the price of the game / processors and memory

The beginning of summer in the market of computer hardware was very hot. Most manufacturers tried to tie announcements of promising products to the last exhibition Computex, which firmly won the title of the largest industry show. As a result, now we have to work tirelessly – new items arrive in the laboratory one after […]

Skylake is already here / Processors and memory

The release of desktop processors Broadwell-DT a couple of months ago passed almost unnoticed. Their assortment in LGA1150-performance includes only two rather expensive quad-core models, which practically do not exceed the performance of Haswell generation predecessors, they have typical heat dissipation reduced to 65 W, low clock frequencies, and also are characterized by mediocre overclocking. […]

details on the microarchitecture / processors and memory

The announcement of the generation of Skylake takes place in this somewhat unusual way. First of all, Intel introduced the Core i7-6700K and i5-6600K – older desktop models for enthusiasts – and even started selling them, but the output of mass processors for desktop computers, as well as for other market segments, was postponed for […]

Overview of Kingston HyperX Savage DDR3 memory modules (HX318C9SRK4 / 32 and HX324C11SRK4 / 32) / Processors and memory

The memory standard DDR4 SDRAM came to personal computers about a year ago. But despite this, it has not gained much popularity, as until recently there was only one platform with its support – LGA2011-3. It is clear that such a premium high-performance platform could not become a good conductor of the new technology on […]

scalping and overclocking / processors and memory

<! – scalping and overclocking / processors and memory | ] Of course, no one forbids exploiting the disassembled Skylake with the heat dissipator removed, but this entails several serious problems at once, and the danger of damaging the fragile semiconductor crystal by the cooler's bottom is only the smaller of them. In addition, you […]

Review Core i3-6320, i3-6100 and Pentium G4500 / processors and memory

Each month, the new LGA1151 platform and Skylake generation processors are gradually strengthening their market positions, replacing the familiar, but obsolete systems based on Haswell processors. However, such a replacement is clearly slower than the original Intel plan. This is due in part to the fact that the upgrade of the system with the transition […]
