Relevance: 100%      Posted on: April 25, 2008

While we're still hot with our CPU survey, I'd like to direct everyone to this nifty CPU Comparison Chart for 2007 over at Tom's Hardware. Tom's Hardware tested over 90 Intel and AMD desktop processors under 35 different benchmarks on a Windows Vista machine. All the data were compiled and presented in a dynamic chart as shown below: I selected 3 of the desktop CPUs I currently have at home -- a Sempron 3200+ 1.8GHz, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.3GHz and the new Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz and pit them against crowd favorite Intel Core 2 Duo…

Intel Philippines just sent in word that they are slashing down the prices of their SSD storage units this Christmas. They're still relatively expensive but nice to know the prices are going down.

The new Intel SSD prices are as follows: Intel X25-V 40GB SATA SSD: $99 (Php5,000 in PC Express) Intel X25-M 80GB SATA SSD: $189 (Php9,500 in PC Express) Intel X25-M 120GB SATA SSD: $239 Intel X25-M 160GB SATA SSD: $399 (Php17,950 in PC Express) These prices…

Intel will cut jobs to maintain lead over AMD

Relevance: 91%      Posted on: September 5, 2006

Just saw on CNN that Intel will cut more jobs from it's 100,000 worldwide workforce. This is on top of the previous job cuts of about 1,000 managers lately. Reports says the cuts could be between 10,000 to 20,000 employees. This seems to be Intel's logical step to maintain it's lead over growing competitor Advance Micro Devices (AMD). The Opteron is held to be a much better processor in the server line and companies such as Dell are ordering AMD chips in for their desktop PCs. The job cuts might seem a drastic move for Intel just so it could…

Poll: What’s inside your rig, Intel or AMD?

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: April 23, 2008

Last month, I upgraded my old desktop PC. I have been a longtime AMD fan and for the last 5 years or so, have used almost all of their CPUs -- Athlon, Sempron, AMD64+, and the X2. Even most of the dedicated servers I get runs AMD Opteron CPUs. They're cheaper and does the job just fine. However, during my latest upgrade, I switched to the other side -- an Intel Q6600 Core 2 Quad 2.4 GHz. I actually got the works -- 4GB DDR2 800 RAM, Inno3D 8600 GTS 256MB DDR3 and a Gigabyte 3D Aurora. The switch was…

Relevance: 87%      Posted on: June 18, 2008

Several weeks ago, Intel Philippines delivered this desktop PC at home for me to test. It was their top of the line Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16Ghz processor. Been using it regularly and have done some basic benchmarks on it already but was wondering if readers have any inputs on what else to do. We're all familiar with the PCMark, 3DMark, FarCry and Quake 4 benchmarks widely available on the net. What I'm looking into are real world benchmarks that will help our readers here choose their CPU on their next upgrade. I already own an Intel Core 2…
