Just when you thought Samsung was done spewing out half a dozen of Galaxy S4 variants, you have another one. Intel’s mobile keynote slide had a device we were least not-at-all expecting, the Galaxy S4. So what if Samsung is using an Intel SoC in their newest Galaxy Tab 3, does that warrant for another
Following with their new-found strategy of a yearly refresh, AMD announced the successor to their popular Trinity based APUs. Say hello to Richland folks.

With the quad-core Haswell already out in the wild, it’s time for the cheaper and more value oriented dual-core Haswell processors to show their face. Intel had lifted the embargo on quad-core Haswell back on Saturday, with the embargo on dual-c0re SKUs lifted off today. Here’s a quick round-up of the various dual-core lineups that Intel

Continuing with their yearly refresh, Intel announced their fresh new lineup of processors for mobile as well as desktops based on the company’s latest Haswell core microarchitecture. Intel follows a very efficient strategy called Tick-Tock. Every Tick is a die shrink, while every Tock is an architectural change or something like that. This strategy has
Is the new Haswell architecture any better than Ivy Bridge in gaming? We answer this question by putting them head to head in the latest AAA titles like Crysis 3, Bioshock Infinite and Metro: Last Light.
As you would have read everywhere else today, Haswell is an quite an improvement over Ivy Bridge in many ways, especially idle/typical power consumption, integrated graphics and performance in applications that can take advantage of the new instruction sets. So what happens when you turn all power management features off and then compare them overclocked
Taiwanese chip maker MediaTek has officially announced their budget tablet oriented quad core SoC, the MT8125. Powered by four ARM Cortex A9 CPUs, the MT8125 promises to deliver performance for inexpensive devices. MediaTek’s MT8125 can be thought of as the tablet equivalent to its (uber) popular MT6589 quad core chipset. The former is a far
