Each year, Intel makes its latest chips sound amazing—by comparing them against aging computer systems that should possibly be replaced! Does it impress you that a Skylake chip can give you 2.5x the raw overall performance, 30x the graphic and 3x the battery life of a 5-year old laptop? Yeah, that’s what I thought.
At Intel’s IFA press conference, a handful of dozen Skylake chips had been unveiled across a wide array of power levels. Among these are a handful of chips that you’re likely to see far more of than others. Dilengkapi dengan chipset 855 dengan fitur baru 2Mb L2 Cache 400MHz technique bus dan kecocokan dengan soket processor dengan seri-seri Pentium M sebelumnya.
I like you Matt, it is this attitude that more individuals ought to adopt IMO. It would force the makers to be more innovative but as it is to many men and women upgrade each cycle or two. Keeps costs higher and innovation low. As someone who worked in an Intel Validation group for SOCs until mid-2014 or so I can tell you, yes, you will see much more CPU bugs from Intel than you have in the past from the post-FDIV-bug era till recently. From AMD we have a Q4 Kaveri release coming up as effectively as FX-9000 series processors release coming up later this year.
Some laptops are shipping with support for cellular wireless plans, which let you connect to the Internet practically anywhere you get cellular reception. Of course, these solutions will charge a month-to-month information charge. Intel is also upping the ante with wireless charging. Back at IDF 2014, Intel touted that it wanted to reduce all kinds of cords and some models running the new Skylake CPUs will come with keyboards that double as wireless charging docks.
Alternatively, you might opt for a far more entry-level processor if you have a tendency to use your laptop exclusively for Internet browsing, simple multitasking, document viewing and editing, and if you only occasionally watch videos, do light photo editing, and play games. I never know what to say. Not too many years ago (2005 methinks) I nonetheless making use of 130nm processors, and here we are now, about twelve years later we’re gonna have 10nm processors. Go for the quad, and if you can spare a few added bucks, the i7 920 is the most bang for the buck out there today!
