    Integrated GPU a Waste??

    Without any good excuse to buy decent computer hardware and construct a new machine, it isn't very fun to buy. These new Intel chips aren't about squeezing as much performance out of the die area as possible, and I can hardly blame Intel. There is very little incentive for them to greatly outdo...

    Will more than 4 threads be useful for gaming within the next 3 years?

    I know that for things like video encoding more cores is good, but for the average user, is there/will there be any benefit within the next few years? I am not sure what the point of 8 threads is whether we are talking about nehalem i7 or sandy bridge. Also, what are the benefits of having 4...

    New Mobility Graphics: Why only 128 bit bus?

    Well I am well aware that gddr5 makes up for half the bus width, but I guess it just seems to me like it would be sweet if they kept the 256bit bus and used gddr5. Seems to me they're way too concerned about battery life and heat but I guess that's what they think people will pay for. Evidently...

    New Mobility Graphics: Why only 128 bit bus?

    I fail to understand why AMD and Nvidia are (according to wikipedia) crippling their best mobile graphics "solutions" with nothing greater than a 128 bit bus. Wasn't the entire reason that the desktop 4870 was so nice because it combined gddr5 and a 256 bit bus? I don't understand what the...

    The Q6600 is a beast

    E6600 3.6 since November 06 and the computer has been running basically 90% of that time. Need to replace the cruddy fans on the case cause they're starting to make noises but the chip has been worth every penny

    Intel Westmere 32nm & Clarkdale Core i5-661 Review @ [H]

    My conclusion is that basically there's zero reason to be excited about one of these new processors compared to an i7 920 for $200 from microcenter I could have had a year ago

    Do I NEED to overclock my i5?

    If you're looking for someone to tell you that you don't have to, you're probably in the wrong forum. You don't NEED to but there's not much of a reason NOT to except if you simply don't have time to learn how to do it properly and to set up a stable OC (and it isn't that difficult) If you have...

    Can you tell TN from S-IPS?

    It's tough to know which picture is which considering that I don't know what an original, perfect image would look like. For instance there are definite color differences in the first photo. Is the sky actually blue or is there more of a thunderstorm coming? If the sky was more clear when the...

    Intel 1H 2009 Roadmap

    I don't really see what you mean. You asked why everyone isn't happy that intel isn't releasing any exciting new products anytime soon, and I gave a common sense answer. It's unfortunate cause the transition from core 2 -> i7 was nothing like the p4 -> c2. If you really can use the i7 now...
