Tom's Hardware: "Intel’s next-generation desktop platform, code-named Sandy Bridge, has finally arrived. Our article, Intel’s Second-Gen Core CPUs: The Sandy Bridge Review, digs into the architecture and performance benchmarks of the new processors and chipsets, while the article you’re reading today focuses on power consumption and power efficiency.
Lower power consumption levels are no longer just nice to have, but in fact we’re observing that power consumption and power management are turning into features that ultimately also help maximizing performance in many popular load scenarios. This is even more important, as Intel designed Sandy Bridge to be modular, so that it can scale from entry-level Core i3 to the high-end Xeons later this year. Effectively, the majority of Intel’s mainstream processor portfolio will be based on Sandy bridge by the end of 2011, which makes an additional efficiency analysis worthwhile."
It's time to give your setup the upgrade of its lifetime with this Cyber Monday AMD Ryzen 7 5700X Cyber Monday deal.
Amazon is currently offering the historic lowest-ever price on the AMD Ryzen 5 7600 CPU for a limited time.
A six-core, 12-thread processor with a $299 price tag, the AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is a great choice for midrange gaming CPUs. Out of the new Zen 3-based processors the business is offering, it has the best core count and price ratio. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600X stands out when compared to the typical Intel Core i5-10600K, offering Intel serious competition (even though it comes with a little higher price tag than we're used to from Ryzens).
