And for a long while, Chromebooks represented the top selling laptops on Amazon.&nbsp; Now that Windows laptops can be bought for $250 or less, Chromebooks aren't as enticing, but what about 2-in-1 systems? We're about to find out as <strong>laptop makers ready 2-in-1 Chromebook models for a second quarter release</strong>.</p> <p>Citing sources from within the upstream supply chain, <a href="http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20150325PD213.html" target="_blank"><em>Digitimes</em> says</a> Intel is planning to partner with Google and notebook players like Asus, Acer, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Quanta Computer, and Pegatron Technology to launch convertible Chromebooks next quarter. Initially these will be 11-inch to 13-inch devices.</p> <p>Like traditional Chromebooks, these 2-in-1 devices will compete on price. They'll also target students in the U.S., as that seems to be the niche that's most responsive to Chrome OS. After that, laptop makers will push 2-in-1 Chromebooks into emerging markets such as Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Southeast Asia.</p> <p>There's no word on specific pricing at this point, though it's expected these devices will undercut Windows 2-in-1 systems by about 10 percent.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/notebooks_makes_ready_2--1_chromebook_models_release_q2_2015#comments 2-in-1 chromebook Hardware intel laptop notebook News Thu, 26 Mar 2015 18:58:26 +0000 Paul Lilly 29647 at http://www.maximumpc.com How To Set Up Software RAID 0 for Windows and Linux http://www.maximumpc.com/how_set_software_raid_0_windows_and_linux_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3>Up your speed by linking two or more drives in RAID 0</h3> <p>For serious PC builders, speed is the name of the game. Too often, storage becomes a bottleneck that holds back even the beefiest CPU. Even with the advent of SSDs, leveraging a redundant array of independent disks (RAID) can drastically reduce boot and loading times. RAID 0 is the easiest way to get more speed out of two or more drives, and lets you use a pretty cool acronym to boot.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_samsung-840evo.jpg" alt="Samsung 840EVOs in RAID 0" title="Samsung 840EVOs in RAID 0" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>In our test rig, we used a pair of Samsung 840EVOs with the latest firmware.</strong></p> <p>RAID has several “levels” that use drives in different ways. Level 0 (RAID 0) spreads or “stripes” data between two or more drives. The problem with striping data across drives is that when things go wrong, they go really wrong: If a single hard drive in a RAID 0 array fails and cannot be recovered, the entire RAID array is lost.&nbsp;</p> <p>On the plus side, RAID 0 combines the drives into a single larger logical drive with a capacity that is the sum of all the drives in the array. We found in our test rig that write cache stacked as well, which resulted in faster writing for large files. The data stored on the drives are read or written simultaneously, resulting in greatly reduced access times.</p> <p>There are three ways to implement RAID: hardware, software, and FakeRAID. Hardware RAID is faster, but it’s also more expensive due to the need for specialized hardware. Software and FakeRAID use the CPU in lieu of a dedicated RAID chip.</p> <p>&nbsp;Creating a software RAID array in operating system software is the easiest way to go. Windows 8 comes with everything you need to use software RAID, while the Linux package “<a href="http://www.linuxcommand.org/man_pages/mdadm8.html" target="_blank">mdadm</a>” is listed in most standard repositories.&nbsp;</p> <p>The problem with software RAID is that it only exists in the OS it was created in. Linux can’t see a RAID array created in Windows and vice versa. If you’re dual booting both Linux and Windows and need access to the array from both operating systems, use FakeRAID. Otherwise, stick to software.</p> <h3>Prepare your hardware</h3> <p>To ensure the best RAID performance, use identical drives with the same firmware. Mixing drive makes and models may work, but will result in faster drives being slowed down to match the slowest drive in the array. Don’t mix SSDs and mechanical drives in a RAID array; the SSD is faster on its own.</p> <p>RAID 0 doesn’t protect you from drive failure, so use new drives whenever possible. When connecting your drives, make sure they’re all using the same SATA version as well.</p> <p>Before a drive can be used in a RAID array, it must be clear of filesystems and partitions. If you’re using old drives, make sure you get everything of value off of them first. &nbsp;You can remove any partitions with Disk Management on Windows or “gparted” on Linux. If you’re using FakeRAID, the motherboard’s RAID utility should warn you before it wipes partition tables and the filesystems on them.</p> <p>In your operating system, you’ll need to have elevated permissions to create a RAID array. For Windows, you’ll need to be an Administrator. In Linux, you’ll need either the root password or sudo access.</p> <p>If you want to use FakeRAID, make sure your motherboard supports it. Be warned though: Installing an OS on top of a RAID 0 array can be really risky if your system data is critical.</p> <h3>Windows: storage spaces</h3> <p>Creating a software RAID 0 array on Windows is really easy, and relatively painless. The thing is, Microsoft doesn’t call it RAID in Windows 8, opting for “storage spaces” and “storage pools” instead.</p> <p>Hit Win+S and search for “storage spaces” and open the utility. Next, click <strong>Create a new pool and storage space</strong>. You’ll be prompted for administrator access. Click <strong>Yes</strong> to continue.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_storage-spaces.png" alt="Windows 8 Storage Spaces " title="Windows 8 Storage Spaces " width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Windows 8's built-in RAID software goes by the name "Storage Spaces."</strong></p> <p>You’ll be greeted by a windows showing all the unformatted disks that can be used. Select all the disks you want in the array and click&nbsp;<strong>Create pool</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_create-pool.png" alt="Windows 8 storage pool" title="Windows 8 storage pool" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>To create a storage pool in Windows 8, the disks need to be unformatted.</strong></p> <p>Next, give the pool a name and drive letter. The name will appear as the drive label. Select NTFS as the filesystem. For Resiliency type, select <strong>Simple (no resiliency)</strong>. This is the equivalent to RAID0. When you’re ready, click <strong>Create storage space</strong>&nbsp;to create the array.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_create-storage-space.png" alt="Creating a storage space" title="Creating a storage space" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>While a simple storage space technically only requires one hard disk, you need at least two for it to be a true RAID setup.</strong></p> <p>If you want to remove a RAID array for any reason, simply click <strong>Delete</strong>&nbsp;next to the storage space you want to remove. To remove the pool, remove all of the storage spaces in it first.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_manage-storage-spaces.png" alt="Manage Windows 8 storage spaces" title="Manage Windows 8 storage spaces" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>When you're all done, you'll be able to manage your storage spaces, check capacity, and monitor usage.</strong></p> <p style="text-align: left;">See? Told you it was easy. &nbsp;Next up, we're going to cover <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/how_set_software_raid_0_windows_and_linux_2015?page=0,1">creating RAID 0 arrays in Linux and in FakeRAID</a>.</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Linux: Excuse me, mdadm</h3> <p>Creating a software RAID in Linux is faster than Windows because it only requires a couple of console commands. In our example, we booted from a live Ubuntu 14.04 LTS USB stick.</p> <p>First, you need to <a href="http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/admin/mdadm" target="_blank">download and install mdadm</a>&nbsp;from your package manager. In Ubuntu, use aptitude to install the program:</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">sudo apt-get install mdadm</span></p> <p>Once mdadm is installed, you can create your array by typing the following command as root or using sudo:</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">mdadm --create /dev/mdX --level=0 --raid-devices=[number of drives] [drive name] [drive name] [etc]&nbsp;</span></p> <p>The above command will vary based on the size of your array, and how you’d like to name it. RAID devices are generally named <span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">/dev/mdX</span> where <span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">X</span> is the index of the array. Drive names must be valid Linux device paths, e.g., <span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">/dev/sda</span> or <span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">/dev/disk/by-uuid/[UUID]</span>. In our example, we used the following:</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">mdadm --create /dev/md0 --level=0 --raid-devices=2 /dev/sda /dev/sdb</span></p> <p>To take apart the RAID array, use the following commands:</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">umount -l /dev/mdX<br />mdadm --stop /dev/mdX<br />sudo mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdX<br />sudo mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sdY …</span></p> <h3>Using onboard FakeRAID</h3> <p>Onboard FakeRAID is harder to set up, but is your only real choice if you want your RAID array to be accessible to both Windows and Linux. It also offers the advantage of letting you install Windows 8 on top of it. Linux can the installed on a FakeRAID array as well, but requires use of the dmraid driver.</p> <p>Once your drives are physically installed, boot into your BIOS by tapping the key prompted on startup. The message will say “Press DEL to enter Setup…” or something similar.&nbsp;</p> <p>Once you’re in your BIOS, look for an option called “SATA mode.” This option is in different places for each motherboard manufacturer, so refer to your user manual if you can’t find it. Once you’ve found the setting, change the setting to <strong>RAID</strong>. This will let your onboard RAID software know that there are possible RAID devices to be started. When you’re done, save and reboot.</p> <p>On the next boot, you have to get into the RAID software to set up your arrays. If you have Intel RAID onboard, you should be prompted to hit <strong>CTRL+I</strong> to start the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (RST) RAID software. Software varies by vendor, so consult your motherboard manual on entering the RAID utility.</p> <p>In the RST menu, you should see some options and a list of hard drives on your system. Select <strong>Create RAID Volume</strong>.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_intel-rst.jpg" alt="Intel RST" title="Intel RST" width="620" height="465" /></strong></p> <p><strong>Any disks attached via SATA in RAID mode will show up in Intel RST. Disks that aren't included in an array will be shown as a "Non-Raid Disk."</strong></p> <p>On the next screen, give the RAID array a name and hit Enter. In the next field, use the up and down arrow keys to select the RAID level labeled <strong>RAID 0 (Stripe)</strong>&nbsp;and hit Enter again.</p> <p>In the next field, you can set the size of the striped data, but the default size should work just fine. Hit Enter to save the strip size and capacity to their default values and hit Enter again to create the volume. Confirm that you’re OK with wiping everything off the disks in your array by typing “<span style="font-family: 'courier new', courier;">Y</span>.”</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_create-fakeraid.jpg" alt="Creating a FakeRAID volume" title="Creating a FakeRAID volume" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Creating a RAID volume in Intel's RST software is pretty straightforward.</strong></p> <p>Back on the home screen, you will see a RAID volume, with the status of the disks used in the array changed from “Non-RAID disk” to “Member Disk.” Use the down arrow to select <strong>Exit</strong> to save and exit the software.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u200840/raid0_rst-member-delete.jpg" alt="Intel RST with RAID members" title="Interl RST with RAID members" width="620" height="465" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>When you return to RST's main screen, you'll see that the drives will have been added as members to the RAID array. You can also remove disks from the array or delete the array altogether.</strong></p> <p>On the next boot, your FakeRAID array will appear as a single volume to the operating system. Additionally, RST will display the status of your RAID disks during the boot process, before the operating system loads. From there, you can partition and format the RAID array as you would any other disk.</p> <p>Setting up RAID 0 is a little more work than just slapping in some hard drives and booting up, but the speed benefits are undeniable.</p> http://www.maximumpc.com/how_set_software_raid_0_windows_and_linux_2015#comments array build it how to set up RAID 0 intel linux ssd windows 8 Features How-Tos Wed, 25 Mar 2015 20:50:15 +0000 Alex Campbell 29637 at http://www.maximumpc.com PC Gaming Week: Maximum PC Editors' Rigs http://www.maximumpc.com/pc_gaming_week_maximum_pc_editors_rigs_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3>We invite you in to check out our personal systems</h3> <p>In celebration of <strong>PC Gaming Week</strong> by our sister publications, we at Maximum PC thought it would be good to contribute to the cause, with an article dedicated to exploring the rigs of our editors.

In early 2014, I was still in school finishing up my bachelor’s, which was focused on photojournalism.</p> <p>In case I turned photography into a business, I needed a new machine to handle some photo editing in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. I also wanted a machine that could handle some video editing. I knew my budget wouldn’t be able to handle a 4K load, so I didn’t even try to reach that level. Instead, I focused on making sure I had enough storage to keep all the hefty RAW files from my Nikon D90.</p> <p>I play games, too, so I needed a card that could render decent framerates with a some RTS and FPS games I could find on Steam. Primarily, though, my goal was to create a midrange digital workstation to produce media. </p> <p>I’ve been an AMD builder most of my life, so I looked for a decent mid-range FM2 chip to do the number crunching, and settled on an AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz. I dropped it into a GIGABYTE GA-F2A88X-D3H that I chose for its price, USB 3.0 ports, and decent reviews on Newegg. The fact that it sports 8 SATA 3 ports was a big plus, as I was planning on packing it full of spinning drives. I transplanted my ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler onto my new chip, and used the stock AMD fan for my old CPU, which is now the heart of a SAMBA file server.</p> <p>Video is powered by an EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti, which was a solid card, and can still play many games at a decent framerate. While it’s still a great card for what I paid, the 550 Ti doesn’t support many of the latest features of NVIDIA’s drivers and software.</p> <p>I grabbed a couple of 8GB DDR3 1866 GSKILL Ripjaw X Series RAM sticks to run my apps. Sure, 1866 wasn’t the fastest speed available, but again, my starving-student budget didn’t give me much wiggle room.</p> <p>Storage was the name of the game for this build, so I nabbed a 120GB Kingston HyperX 3K SH103S3 SSD for my system partitions. The SSD houses both Windows 8.1 and Arch Linux. A pair of 500GB Seagate Barracudas house my “active” video and photo files. One drive serves as the “main” working disk and the other is the backup. In case you’re wondering, they’re not linked in RAID 1, because RAID is not a backup scheme, it’s a drive redundancy scheme. Using the second drive as a backup ensures that if something happens to my work, I can get the next most recent version of my working files back.</p> <p>Media and personal live on a 1TB Barracuda, which is split between an NTFS partition for Windows and an Ext4 partition for my Linux /home directory.</p> <p>I threw all of this into a CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced case. The case is nice because the built-in front LEDs have their own toggle switch and the carrying handle on top is quite comfortable to use. When I moved up to the Bay Area, it was much easier to pack into my car than my server was. It also has decent space for cable management on the back panel and plenty of fan-mounting options.</p> <p>I powered the rig with a 850W Rosewill RX850-S-B Xtreme Series I transplanted from the server box. The power supply is 80 Plus Bronze, which helps with my power bill. The thing is also surprisingly silent, which is nice if I sleep with the computer on in my room.</p> <p>My storage solution also includes my server, running on a quad-core Athlon X2 Black Edition with two cores unlocked in BIOS. The server’s Arch Linux image lives on a 60GB SanDisk SSD. A pair of 2TB Barracudas serve as photo-archive drives. One drive serves as the primary and the other as backup, just like the working drives in my main box. Backups are automated with rsync and cron. The server also has a 3TB Barracuda for NAS use and is encrypted with dm-crypt/LUKS. I really should buy a couple more for a RAID array, though. The server is powered by a 650W Cooler Master GX.</p> <p>My peripherals and display are rather lackluster and in dire need of replacement, but I do like my illuminated Logitech K800. It’s not mechanical or great for gaming, but the backlighting is gentle and fades in and out as you move your hands over it, which is great for working at night, or just adjusting the system volume while watching Netflix from across the room.</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Tom McNamara, Technical Editor</h3> <p>CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K @ 4.2GHz<br />CPU cooler: NZXT Kraken X40<br />Motherboard: Gigabyte GX-Z77-UD5H<br />GPU: MSI Gaming 4G NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980<br />RAM: Corsair LP 16GB (4x 4GB) DDR3<br />SSD: Crucial M500 480GB<br />HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB <br />Audio: Onboard<br />PSU: Thermaltake TPG-675M Toughpower 675W<br />Case: Fractal Design Define XL R2<br />Keyboard: Logitech G710+<br />Mouse: Logitech M310<br />Display: Dell S2340M 23-inch<br />Accessories: None</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u99720/tom_mcnamara_pc_1.jpg" alt="Tom McNamara's home rig" title="Tom McNamara's home rig" width="620" height="836" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Tom McNamara's home rig.</strong></p> <p>My overall strategy with this system was to create something that would be fairly quiet, spacious, and understated. I don't go for case windows because they let more noise through, and I get over looking through them after a few days anyway. So, the Fractal Design Define XL R2 fit the bill. It has sound-absorbing panels and three 140mm fans pre-installed.</p> <p>For the CPU, I wanted something with eight threads, so I went with the Intel Core i7-3770K. It gets me better performance than AMD's FX-8350, and it draws much less power. I cool it with an NZXT Kraken X40, since I'm not going for particularly high clock speeds. I still use the original "Kraken Control" software instead of CAM, because I prefer the simpler interface. The radiator is mounted in the top of the case. The GA-Z77-UD5H motherboard has served me pretty well so far. I might try an Asus board in the future, because I like their fan control software, and I tend to get pretty high overclocks out of them, and with less fiddling in the BIOS. I use low-profile RAM because you never know when you might need the physical clearance, and I don't need fancy heatsinks. DDR3 just doesn't get hot enough to warrant them, in my experience.</p> <p>I went with the MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G because I wanted something beefy, but not noisy. This GPU is rated to pull around 165 watts under load, so the card's cooling fans don't have to make much noise. I can also add a second 980 without stressing out my 675-watt power supply, whereas two Radeon R9 290Xs would call for about 850 watts.</p> <p>For storage, I got a good deal on a 480GB Crucial M500, but I ended up running out of room for my Steam games, so I got a 1TB Samsung 840 EVO to give me some breathing room. I was using my 4TB Seagate HDD to copy games over when I needed room; copying them back later is much faster than re-downloading. It's also good to have for system and file backups.</p> <p>For input, I've been using the Corsair M65 for a while now. Its finish doesn't rub or flake off, which I've had happen with other mice. That flaking makes the texture feel weird and like the mouse is dirty even though it looks fine. I'll probably be trying out the Logitech G303 soon, though, for some variety.</p> <p>I got a good deal on the Dell S2340M monitor, and I liked it so much that I bought another. The back of it is a bit awkward, though; bulky DVI connectors simply can't fit. It also doesn't do HDMI. The image quality is great, and the bezels are thin, but 23 inches is just a bit too small for my tastes. I'll probably be getting a 2560x1440 monitor soon, now that we're going to be getting things like 144Hz IPS and FreeSync. Unfortunately, the S2340M doesn't rotate into portrait mode, and I don't currently have enough desk space for two of those and a 1440p display. First-world problems.</p> <p>I've had good luck with Logitech's keyboards, so I bought a G710+ a while back. It has white LED backlighting, Cherry MX brown mechanical switches, and some macro keys that I never use. But it's quiet and hasn't let me down yet. I tried the Corsair RGB keyboard, but I found its keys too springy for my taste. Before this, I was using a Tesoro Durandal G1NL, which is also Cherry MX Brown, but with a reddish-orange backlight similar to the Sidewinder X4 that I had before that. I stopped using the G1NL because it wouldn't initialize until Windows had booted, meaning I couldn't access the BIOS. No amount of tweaking would fix it. I keep hoping that Microsoft will enter the mechanical keyboard fray, but they don't seem to be interested in enthusiast keyboards or mice anymore.</p> <p>I play a variety of games on this rig. Lately, it's been Cities: Skylines, which some people have described to me as the de facto sequel to Sim City 4. I think it's pretty great, especially for $30. I've also been dabbling with Star Citizen; its very transparent and publisher-free development process has been fascinating to watch. Shadow of Mordor has also been great fun, and I'm looking forward to testing my system's limits with The Witcher 3.</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Jimmy Thang, Online Managing Editor</h3> <p>CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K<br />CPU cooler: Hyper 212<br />Motherboard: Something useful<br />GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan<br />RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3<br />SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB<br />HDD: Seagate Desktop HDD 4TB <br />Audio: Creative Sound Blaster Z<br />PSU: A car battery<br />Case: Fractal Design Define R4<br />Keyboard: Razer Black Widow<br />Mouse: Logitech Daedalus Prime<br />Display: ASUS VG248QE 24-inch 144Hz</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u99720/jimmy_thang_pc_1_s.jpg" alt="Jimmy Thang's home rig" title="Jimmy Thang's home rig" width="420" height="682" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Jimmy Thang's home rig.</strong></p> <p>At the heart of my current home rig, I’m using a 3770K CPU, GTX Titan GPU, and 16GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM.

All of this is wrapped in a white Define R4 chassis, which I like because of its clean aesthetics. </p> <p>Currently, my main display is a 24-inch 144Hz 3D panel from Asus. I don’t use the 3D features at all, but I do like having super high framerates (for when 60fps simply won’t do). I also have a separate 24-inch IPS display from Dell, which I use as a secondary monitor to help with productivity work. My GeForce GTX Titan may seem overkill for a 1080p display, but I’m also playing around with an Oculus Rift DK2, which has demos render 1080p scenes twice for each eye, and demands experiences be a consistent 75fps. VR games like space simulator Elite Dangerous really put my Titan to work here.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u99720/jimmy_thang_pc_2_s.jpg" alt="Jimmy Thang's displays" title="Jimmy Thang's displays" width="620" height="362" /></p> <p>When I’m not running around in VR, I find myself playing a lot of different indie games like Darkest Dungeon or Transistor. I was also really into League of Legends for a while. Yes, these games don’t tax my hardware at all, but I’ll occasionally play more demanding games, such as Evolve or Shadow of Mordor, and I like knowing that I have a relatively future-proof rig capable of maxing out any game I throw at it. This, of course, will change when I make the eventual move to a 4K monitor (I’m mostly waiting for the scaling issues to be resolved before I dive in). </p> <p>The accessories I’m using to play these games include Razer’s Black Widow mechanical keyboard (I like the really loud and clicky feel of it) and Logitech’s Daedalus Prime mouse, which was originally designed for MOBAs with its quick click-actuation time. For audio, I’m using Corsair’s Vengeance 2100 wireless headset. It can be a burden to charge every now and then, but the audio quality and sound isolation are great, and I really enjoy the freedom of being able to walk around my room untethered as I listen to music. I’m also using a wireless Xbox 360 controller, which I feel is the best controller for PC gaming at the moment, but that could change with Valve’s Steam Controller that’s coming out this November.</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3>Tuan Nguyen, Editor-in-Chief</h3> <p><strong>System 1, The Workhorse:</strong><br />CPU: Intel Core i7 3970X<br />CPU cooler: NZXT Kraken X41<br />Motherboard: ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition<br />GPU: EVGA 04G-P4-2986KR NVIDIA GTX 980<br />RAM: Samsung “Green” Low-profile (8 x 4GB) DDR3 <br />SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB x 2<br />HDD: Western Digital Black WD4003FZEX 4TB x 4<br />Audio: Onboard + Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 5.1, Astro Gaming A40 headset<br />PSU: Seasonic Platinum-1000 1000w<br />Case: NZXT H440 Black/Blue<br />Keyboard: Das Keyboard 4 Ultimate<br />Mouse: Logitech MX Master<br />Display: Dell UltraSharp U3011 30-inch, Dell UtraSharp 2311h 23-inch<br />Accessories: APC Smart-UPS 1500 UPS, Fujitsu U2300 Magneto-Optical drive, Logitech C920 webcam</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u99720/tuan_nguyen_pc_3.jpg" alt="Tuan's workhorse" title="Tuan's workhorse PC" width="620" height="827" /></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>Gigabyte X79A-UD5 mobo has since been replaced with an ASUS Rampge IV Black Edition.</strong></p> <p><strong>System 2, The Decapitator:</strong> <strong>Digital Storm Bolt 3</strong><br />CPU: Intel Core i7 4790K<br />CPU cooler: Digital Storm HydroLux Liquid<br />Motherboard: ASUS Maximus VII Impact<br />GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan X<br />RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum (2 x 8GB) DDR3 <br />SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 512GB<br />HDD: Western Digital Black WD4003FZEX 4TB<br />Audio: Onboard + [Below], Astro Gaming A50 headset<br />PSU: Seasonic Platinum-1000 1000w<br />Case: Digital Storm Bolt 3<br />Keyboard: Das Keyboard 3 Ultimate<br />Mouse: Logitech G502<br />Display: Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030UB Projector<br />Accessories: APC Smart-UPS 1000 UPS, Xbox 360 controller (wired)<br />Audio: Pioneer Elite VSX-82TXS receiver, Aperion Audio Verus Grand HD speakers</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u191083/tuan_nguyen_pc_4.jpg" alt="Digital Storm Bolt 3" title="Digital Storm Bolt 3" width="620" height="776" /><br /><strong>Tuan's Decapitator:</strong><span style="text-align: start;">&nbsp;</span><strong>Digital Storm Bolt 3</strong></p> <p>I’ve been a gamer for as long as I could remember. I gamed on Atari’s old systems, 286 PCs with yellow monochrome CRT monitors, and a huge array of everything available, up until today. I grew up on all the consoles. I actually don’t own any of the recent consoles, but I do own a first-generation Sony PlayStation running over SCART RGB video into my receiver—I know, it’s pretty nerdy, but I love it. The last console I bought was an Xbox 360. There just aren’t enough great games on the current consoles to warrant getting them. But there are many, many great games on the PC. My setup consists of two different PCs for two different purposes, although one could argue that the two systems could swap duties just fine.</p> <p>The first system is called The Workhorse. It’s used for… you guessed it, work. I’d wager though, that it could play games decently, too. I do play a limited number of games on it, but I save the real entertainment for another system. </p> <p>I went with an NZXT H440 chassis because I enjoy having a minimalistic and clean setup, at least on the outside. On the inside, however, I’ve crammed just about the best components that I could into the system. It’s using a Sandy Bridge Extreme Edition only because I haven’t the chance to move into the new CPUs, but the Core i7 3970X is still a beastly six-core CPU. The motherboard is a loaded ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition, and I chose it because I ended up preferring ASUS’s EFI over Gigabyte’s. Previous to the Rampage, I was using a Gigabyte X79A-UD5 board, which wasn’t quite as stable. And honestly, Gigabyte really needs to do a better job with their firmware. One of the photos shows my old Gigabyte motherboard, but the more recent photo of the entire computer shows the ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition.</p> <p>I’d like to point out that the RAM you see in the photo doesn’t look like much. In fact, it may even look like old DIMM sticks before heatsinks became all the rage. In the overclocking community, these Samsung DDR3 sticks are considered the “golden” standard. They run so cool and clock so fast, you don’t even need heatsinks. I’ve never been a fan of decorative heatsinks, instead I prefer simple ones with actual fins that are efficient at removing heat. A lot of the stuff that’s out there today is all about grabbing your attention. Give me stability over that any day.</p> <p>Other than that, the components I picked are what I feel are best in class. From the SSD to HDD, to GPU and PSU, the components I have in The Workhorse are essentially the best. The Dell UltraSharp U3011 was the company’s previous flagship 30-incher. Dell now has the U3014, which delivers a 30-inch display backed by LED instead of the CCFL backlighting in the U3011. Still, it’s a beauty, but it’s not a “gaming” display by any means. It doesn’t do any of the faster refresh rates, nor does it have the best response time for some types of games, and it doesn’t come with G-Sync either. I use an Acer XB280HK 4K 28-inch display at work that has G-Sync, and I can honestly say, I want G-Sync or FreeSync in all my future displays. </p> <p>To round out the system, I use a Das Keyboard 4 Ultimate for input nirvana. I actually have 3 of these keyboards. Once for this system, one for the entertainment system, and one for my PC at the office. I’m just a really big fan of Cherry MX blue switches. And yes, all the keys are blank on these keyboards.</p> <p>OK, enough work, let’s play.</p> <p>For my entertainment duties, I was really attracted to Digital Storm’s Bolt series of PCs. No only does Digital Storm build really good PCs, they do so with the best components that you and I can buy. Thus exists the Bolt 3. </p> <p>Digital Storm co-designed a chassis, with Lian Li, that I feel is an excellent fit for the living room—that is, not too big, and looks great laying horizontally. At this point, you might be asking why didn’t I just build another rig. Good question. My answer is, this publication is called Maximum PC, not Maximum DIY. I think as fans of PCs, and fans of technology in general, <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/its_ok_buy_pre-built_column_2015">we should appreciate and embrace all types of technology</a>. There are plenty of reasons why someone would choose to build or not to build. Since I’ve been building all my life, I figured: why not see what’s going on the other side? And you know what? It’s awesome! Funny how life works.</p> <p>The Bolt 3 is loaded to the gills with the best parts: an NVIDIA Titan X, Core i7 4790K, Samsung 850 Pro SSD, and more. The best part of the rig, though, is the design. It’s sleek, black, and has a huge plane of dark tempered glass covering one side of the system. It’s slightly larger than the outgoing Bolt 2, but the slight increase in volume allows better airflow, as well as maintenance. In fact, there’s space for two Titan X cards, but I have yet to figure out how to cram that second card in.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u191083/tuan_nguyen_pc_5.jpg" alt="Digital Storm Bolt 3" title="Digital Storm Bolt 3" width="620" height="574" /></p> <p>For its duties as a home-theater gaming rid, the Bolt 3 is connected via HDMI to my Pioneer receiver, which in turn is connected to a monster of a projector: an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5030UB. This is one of the best prosumer 1080p projectors you can buy. It’s extremely highly rated, and outputs a mind-blowingly good picture, even with ambient lighting. </p> <p>I play (or have played): Battlefield 4, Titanfall, League of Legends, Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, World of Warcraft, Supernova (alpha), and a bunch of other titles. Right now though, the game I enjoy playing the most is Ori and the Blind Forest. If you haven’t played it, get it. If you don’t know it, get it. My game library is a mixed bag of different genres, and we know that different games require different hardware to get maximum fidelity. So, going with a Bolt 3 configured as it is allows me to enjoy any title on the market in my living room without fuss. Of course, we’d be just as happy and supportive if you built your own, too.</p> <p>Other than games, I use the Bolt 3 for all other duties, such as movie playback, and the occasional web browsing.</p> <p><span style="font-size: 10px;"><strong>And that's a wrap</strong></span></p> <p>We hope you enjoyed having a deep look into what we use for our own personal systems at home. We try to keep things varied, and all of us have different things that we do with our PCs. No matter what each of us use though, one thing is clear: we love to build stuff. I'd like to point out though that Alex only showed a photo of his PC from the outside because his system is horrendously dusty on the inside. Awful!</p> <p>We're interested in what you guys have in your builds, or if you bought a pre-built, what did you configure it with and why? Why one CPU over another? Why 64GB of RAM instead of 32GB? Is there a brand favorite you have and why?

For those who don’t know what Devil’s Canyon is, it’s Intel’s newest line of Haswell-K CPUs, which are specifically designed to be overclocked. Intel reengineered the thermal interface material (aka paste) and packaging used in Devil’s Canyon to dissipate heat better than last year’s Haswell-K CPUs. We should mention Devil’s Canyon CPUs are technically only supported by a limited number of 8-series mobos, but will work in all new 9-series boards.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Intel’s Haswell CPUs were introduced almost a year ago now, leaving those always on the hunt for the next big thing with nothing to do but twiddle their thumbs. Let the thumb-twiddling cease, at least for the moment, as Intel’s new Core i7-4790K aka Devil’s Canyon has been hyped as the second coming of the Celeron 300A. With rumors saying the chip would easily hit 5GHz on air, enthusiasts everywhere are expecting this chip to finally get us to that sweet 5GHz overclock mark that hasn’t been seen since the days of the original Sandy Bridge CPUs. Was the wait worth it? We grabbed a freshly minted Core i7-4790K to answer the question. Could we get our Core i7-4790K to our desired overclock? Read on to find out!</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">Overclocking Goodness</h3> <p class="MsoNormal">We used Corsair's 250D case as the frame for our overclocking escapade. The cube-shaped 250D is one of the few SFF boxes compatible with dual-rad closed-loop coolers. We opted for Enermax’s Liqtech 240 to cover our cooling needs; it’s an impressive cooler and kept our Core i7-4790K at an acceptable 69C under multi-threaded workloads. We then grabbed an ASUS Z97I-PLUS Mini ITX mobo, which sports Intel’s newest Z97 chipset, and despite its diminutive size, supports a plethora of overclocking features. For RAM, we decided to go with a pair of 4GB ADATA DDR3/2400 modules. Although RAM clocks haven’t made huge differences before, using higher-clocked modules with Haswell does aid performance. The GPU duties were covered by an Nvidia GeForce GTX 780, which is fast, quiet, and runs on the cool side. On the storage front, we opted to use a single Seagate 600-Series 480GB MLC SSD. That’s enough space to live on, so the rig’s hard-drive population is zero. The box has plenty of room for multiple SSDs and HDDs, though. Finally, we supplied the juice through Corsair’s RM 650 PSU, which gives us 650 watts of power and modular cabling.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u187432/benchmark.png" width="450" height="360" /></p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">1. Toss out the odd bay.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.1.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">To get the 250d ready for our build, we needed to first remove its ODD bay. To do this, we removed the top panel to expose the case’s innards. Next, we unscrewed the ODD from its perch at the top-front—just four small screws, not a problem. From there, you just have to slide the bay toward the rear a tiny bit and lift it out. We’re not using an ODD in this build, as there’s little use for one in 2014—with a speedy Internet connection and an 8GB fl ash drive, you can do almost everything that an ODD does. Plus, we needed the space to install the full-size cooler.</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">2. Install the CPU and RAM.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.2.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">The installation of our CPU and memory here is pretty standard stuff. You’ll fi rst line up the pins of the processor with appropriate ones on the socket and then clamp it into place. There are two notches cut out of the CPU at the top of the die to help guide you. Line up the CPU’s notches with the ones on the socket and then fasten the CPU into place with the mobo-CPU latch. Remember to mind the pins: If you bend the pins on the mobo, you’ll kill it. To install the RAM, we unlatched the RAM slots, then lined up the DIMM’s notches to fit properly into the RAM slot and pushed down gently but firmly on the module until we heard it click into place.</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">3. Install the cooler's block.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.3.jpg" width="629" height="355" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Installing the cooler was similar to most other closed-loop liquid-cooler installations we’ve done. We first mounted our backplate onto the motherboard with screws and rubber washers. Next, we secured the water block to the CPU by fastening it with four mounting screws. Here’s a quick PSA on screw tightening: Always make sure you don’t overtighten the water block when installing it, as you could crack your motherboard if you’re overzealous about it. We generally recommend tightening the screws in an X-pattern, which should make it easier to mount the block evenly onto the CPU and motherboard. The X-pattern should be used whenever you’re installing a heatsink or a closed-loop liquid cooler.</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">4. Install the mobo and radiator.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.4.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Installing the Enermax Liqtech 240 was a bit tricky, to say the least. To get things started, remove the 120mm side case fan. The next step is to install the motherboard into the case, using four motherboard screws. Now comes the hard part, you’ll have to wedge in the Liqtech 240 cooler at a 45-degree angle. Once the radiator is safely inside the case, secure it with eight mounting screws. The cooler’s clearance above the motherboard wound up being less than 1cm, so it’s a very tight fit. We don’t recommend newbie system builders attempt an installation of the Liqtech 240 inside a SFF case, as it may be too frustrating. We actually threw around a few expletives ourselves during the cooler installation, so it was definitely a challenge.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <hr /> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">5. Toss in the GPU.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.5.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">The GeForce GTX 780 slid into the 250D with ease. To get started on the installation, unscrew the thumbscrews that hold the video card bracket into place. Once the bracket is free, slide the video card into the PCIe lane. Once in, you’ll need to secure the card in place with its bracket. We like the design of the 250D, as it positions the GPU to exhaust its heat directly out of the chassis. Most cases trap the GPU exhaust heat inside, which can cause thermal issues or disrupt airflow. We should mention that one downside to the 250D is that it only supports two-slot video cards, so if you have a massive three-slot card, it won’t fit in this box. Another thing to be aware of is that extra-long video cards won’t fit into the 250D, either. According to Corsair’s website, the maximum GPU length for a 250D is 11.4 inches.</p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">6. Wire up the system.</h3> <p class="MsoNormal"><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.6.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">To install the PSU, we removed the PSU backplate of the case by unscrewing two thumb screws. We then slid the unit into place and screwed it in securely. Next, we wired up the motherboard for power and plugged in the case’s front-panel connectors. Lastly, we wired up the rest of the motherboard connections for front-panel USB 3.0, audio, and finished up by plugging in our fans. The downside to our 250D is that there’s little room for us to hide any of our cabling. In a standard midtower, most of the cabling can easily be routed and concealed. That said, we are impressed with the size of the 250D; we love it’s short height of 11.4 inches. And we can’t really complain about the cable-routing, but hope that some future SFF cases will offer better routing options.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p><img src="/files/u187432/mpc102.rd_buildit.gutshot.jpg" width="620" height="350" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><em>1.) The Enermax Liqtech 240 cooler comes with two 120mm fans and a ton of cooling capacity. 2.) This Asus motherboard measures just 6.7x6.7 inches, and it’s packed with some high end features. 3.) Corsair’s 250d provides us with a front 140mm fan and (amazingly) will take a good sized liquid cooler. 4.) The GeForce GTX 780 still offers awesome performance while running cool and quiet, and even fits in our case, to boot.</em></p> <h3 class="MsoNormal">Devil’s Canyon Brings the OC Heat -- But Not Enough</h3> <p class="MsoNormal">Frankly, we weren't very blown away with the overclocking performance of the Core i7 4790K. After hearing tales of 5GHz on air using a busted heat sink from a Pentium III, we expected more.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">We were able to get the chip stable at 4.7GHz using 1.35 core voltage, but anything beyond that was BSOD heaven. In November 2013 we tested the Falcon Northwest Tiki, which sported an Intel Core i7-4770K overclocked to 4.7GHz, so our 4.7GHz overclock isn’t a spectacular accomplishment. Since that was the limit, we backed it down just a notch at 4.6GHz to try to tame the somewhat loud noise the cooling was making.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Our Devil’s Canyon box beat out our Zero-Point in a few benchmarks, producing wins in ProShow Producer 5.0 and Stitch.EFX, which it did by an average of 18.5 percent. In multi-threaded workloads such as Premiere Pro and X264 HD 5.01, even the ancient Sandy Bridge-E part with six cores could beat out the Devil’s Canyon part.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">We also compared our rig to Digital Storm’s micro-tower Bolt II, which sports a Core i7 4770K overclocked to 4.5GHz. It was pretty much a tie in the CPU tests, but the Titan Black in the Bolt II trounced our GeForce GTX 780 big time. In 3DMark 11 and Batman: Arkham City we took a beating by 25 percent and 54 percent, respectively. We won’t even mention the Falcon Tiki Z reviewed this month, with its dual-GPU Titan Z. Of course, our entire build cost about two-thirds what just the GPU in the Tiki Z sells for, so you might want our Devil’s Canyon rig, after all!</p> <p class="MsoNormal">&nbsp;</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/files/u187432/benchmarks_2.png" width="550" height="260" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal">Our goal for this build it was to get a Devil’s Canyon part up to 5GHz, but didn’t achieve this overclocking feat with our rig. Not that anyone with a Core i7-4770K would likely be considering an upgrade, but news fl ash: Don’t bother. If you’ve held onto an Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge part for the past few years, and you’re looking for good time, Devil’s Canyon is a good fit for you. The Core i7-4790K currently has the highest base and turbo boost clock speeds of any i7 desktop part, and it costs the same as a Core i7-4770K, so new builders should rejoice.</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><em>This article was taken from the December issue of the mag.&nbsp;</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> http://www.maximumpc.com/build_it_little_devils_canyon_rig_2014#comments 4790K Build computer corsair i7 intel pc Rig Features How-Tos Tue, 24 Mar 2015 18:05:27 +0000 Chris Zele 29377 at http://www.maximumpc.com Intel's Broadwell-Based Core i7 5775C and Core i5 5675C CPUs Rumored to Launch in Q2 http://www.maximumpc.com/intels_broadwell-based_core_i7_5775c_and_core_i5_5675c_cpus_rumored_launch_q2 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/intel_sign_8.jpg" alt="Intel Sign" title="Intel Sign" width="228" height="152" style="float: right;" />Broadwell for the desktop is in sight</h3> <p><strong>Intel is reportedly planning to launch a pair of processors based on its 14nm Broadwell architecture sometime in the second quarter of this year</strong>. One is the <strong>Core i7 5775C</strong> and the other is the <strong>Core i5 5675C</strong>, both of which are unlocked parts, though you'll notice the usual "K" designation for an unlocked Intel chip has been replaced with the letter "C" -- no reason for the change is known at this point.</p> <p>Citing a Chinese-language <a href="http://chinese.vr-zone.com/146637/intel-lga-1150-broadwell-for-desktop-only-have-i7-5775c-and-i5-5675c-03232015/" target="_blank">report</a> by <em>VR-Zone</em>, <a href="http://wccftech.com/intel-broadwell-core-i7-5775c-core-i5-5675c-processors-iris-pro-graphics-6200-detailed-launching-q2-2015/" target="_blank"><em>WCCFTech</em></a> says the Core i7 and Core i5 parts will feature a 65W TDP and the latest Iris Pro Graphics 6200 integrated GPU. That's the one with 64MB of embedded eDRAM cache for faster memory performance versus tapping into system RAM. It also has 48 Execution Units and a 128-bit memory bus.</p> <p>The Core i7 5775C will come clocked at 3.3GHz with a Turbo frequency of 3.7GHz. It's a quad-core chip with Hyper Threading, 6MB of L3 cache, and support for DDR3 memory rated at 1600MHz.</p> <p>Intel's Core i5 5675C is also a quad-core CPU but lacks Hyper Threading, according to the reports. It will be clocked at 3.1GHz with a 3.6GHz Turbo frequency and feature 4MB of L3 cache and DDR3 1600MHz memory support.</p> <p>It's expected that most existing socket LGA 1150 motherboards will support the new chips, though they'll probably need a BIOS update.</p> <p>Launch prices for the Core i7 5775C and Core i5 5675C are expected to be around $350 and $250, respectively.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/intels_broadwell-based_core_i7_5775c_and_core_i5_5675c_cpus_rumored_launch_q2#comments broadwell Build a PC Core i5 5675C Core i7 5775C cpu Hardware intel processor News Tue, 24 Mar 2015 16:07:47 +0000 Paul Lilly 29630 at http://www.maximumpc.com Supermicro Readies an Intel Broadwell-E Capable Gaming PC http://www.maximumpc.com/supermicro_readies_intel_broadwell_gaming_pc_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/supermicro_sys-5038ad-i.jpg" alt="Supermicro SYS-5038AD-I" title="Supermicro SYS-5038AD-I" width="228" height="171" style="float: right;" />An unexpected face in the consumer gaming space</h3> <p>You've probably at least heard of Supermicro, a well established player in the server and workstation markets. Supermicro also dabbles in small form factor (SFF) cases, but as far as full fledged gaming PCs go, options are few and far between. Nevertheless, <strong>Supermicro is getting ready to expand its limited gaming system</strong> lineup with a rig built around Intel's Haswell architecture that will be upgradeable to Broadwell-E.</p> <p>The folks at <em>Fudzilla</em> <a href="http://www.fudzilla.com/news/37318-supermicro-has-a-gaming-pc" target="_blank">caught a glimpse</a> of the new PC in person, and we're glad to see Supermicro is using a better looking chassis than the fugly one found in the <a href="http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/tower/5038/SYS-5038AD-T.cfm" target="_blank">SYS-5038AD-T</a>. That said, Supermicro still hasn't mastered the art of creatively naming a PC gaming line, as the <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">new model</span> barebones SKU is <span style="text-decoration: line-through;">simply called</span> labeled with part number SYS-5038AD-I. Supermicro tells <em>Maximum PC</em> that it's based on the company's own C7X99-OCE motherboard and the S5 chassis -- "the complete system configuration is going to be based on our channel customers' requirements," Supermicro says.</p> <p>In any event, the new PC boasts an Intel Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition processor cooled by an Asetek higher performance liquid cooler, a server grade C7X99-OCE motherboard that supports overclocking, 16GB of DDR4-2133 RAM, two Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 graphics cards in SLI (the demo system on display is rocking three GeForce GTX 980 cards), and a 1,200W Platinum PSU.</p> <p>There's no mention of storage, otherwise it seems like a nice collection of parts (we'd have went with a higher end graphics card or two), assuming the cost is in line with what's being offered.

Equipped with the new chip, Acer says it feels confident claiming that it's the fastest performing commercial Chromebook on the market. At the same time, the C910 offers all-day battery life of up to 8 hours before needing to be recharged.</p> <p>The Core i5 5200U is a fifth generation part based on Intel's 14nm Broadwell-U architecture. It has two cores and four threads clocked at 2.2GHz to 2.7GHz with 3MB of cache, Intel HD Graphics 5500 (300MHz to 900MHz), and a 15W TDP. The same chip is also found in some Ultrabook models.</p> <p>"The new faster performing Acer C910 Chromebook with an Intel Core i5 processor is raising the bar for Chromebook performance," said Carlos Siqueiros, mobility business manager, Acer America. "The advanced technology will boost productivity and help our education and commercial customers get the most out of their Chromebook experience for collaboration on important projects and research."</p> <p>Also unique to the C910 is its 15.6-inch display, the industry's first Chromebook to go that big. It's available with either a 1366x768 (HD) or 1920x1080 (Full HD 1080p) resolution. Both versions sport Acer's ComfyView with anti-glare properties to minimize reflection and eye strain.</p> <p>Othe features include 4GB of RAM, 32GB SSD, 802.11ac Wi-Fi with MIMO technology, full-sized upward facing speakers, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports (one each), HDMI output, and an SD memory card reader.</p> <p>The Acer C910-54M1 with Core i5 5200 will be available next month starting at $500.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/acer_upgrades_chromebook_core_i5_cpu_claims_its_fastest_block_2015#comments Acer C910 chromebook core i5 Hardware intel laptop notebook OEM News Thu, 19 Mar 2015 15:55:21 +0000 Paul Lilly 29612 at http://www.maximumpc.com Every Asus 9 Series Motherboard Now Supports Broadwell http://www.maximumpc.com/every_asus_9_series_motherboard_now_supports_broadwell_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3 style="text-align: left;"><img src="/files/u69/asus_z97_pro.jpg" alt="Asus Z97 Pro" title="Asus Z97 Pro" width="228" height="206" style="float: right;" />May require a BIOS update</h3> <p style="text-align: left;">Rumor has it Intel will finally release its 14nm Broadwell desktop processors in the middle of next quarter (think somewhere around mid-May), so you still have some time to prepare for an upgrade or overhaul, if going that route. Wondering if your motherboard will support Broadwell? At least one company is making it easy -- <strong>Asus on Tuesday announced that all of its 9 Series motherboards support Intel's 5th Generation Core lineup</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">That takes the guesswork out of the equation, though you may need to update the BIOS, which you can do a couple of different ways. One is to use Asus' USB BIOS Flashback tool, which downloads the latest BIOS to a USB flash drive.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">"The motherboard does not even need to have a CPU or DRAM modules in place; users can simply connect the power supply, plug in their USB drive, press the USB BIOS Flashback or Reset button, and then sit back and wait -- there's nothing else to do," Asus says.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">Another way is to use Asus' Windows-based BIOS updated application. It's available to download from Asus, though if you can go the other route, you'll remove a bit of risk from the equation. I've updated BIOSes from within Windows on several occassions, but generally don't advise it in case there's an OS hiccup that interrupts the process and corrupts the BIOS.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">In any event, here's the list of Asus 9 Series mobos and the minimum BIOS version you'll need to run Broadwell:</p> <p style="text-align: left;"> <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml>

alt="Intel Atom x3" title="Intel Atom x3" width="228" height="218" style="float: right;" />Making a move for mobile</h3> <p>Intel last week had already given the heads up that it was <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_rebrands_atom_cpus_hints_new_silicon_2015">rebranding its Atom processors</a> into three performance tiers -- Atom x3, Atom x5, and Atom x7. The Santa Clara chip maker didn't provide any details at the time, leading us to speculate that the first new Atom parts would be based on the company's upcoming 14nm Cherry Trail architecture. Turns out we were two-thirds correct, as <strong>Intel has now formally introduced its next generation Atom parts</strong>.</p> <p>As expected, Intel's Atom x5 and x7 are Cherry Trail parts, but the Atom x3 is a new processor series formerly codenamed SoFIA. It's Intel's first integrated communications System-on-Chip (SoC) and will take aim at the growing value and entry-level smartphone, tablet, and phablet markets.</p> <p>"Combining 64-bit multi-core Intel Atom processors together with 3G or 4G LTE connectivity, the integrated communications SoC combines the applications processor, image sensor processor, graphics, audio, connectivity and power management components in a single system chipset. This integration allows device manufacturers to deliver full-featured tablets, phablets and smartphones at affordable price points for the rapidly growing entry and value market segments," <a href="http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2015/03/02/intel-launches-new-mobile-socs-lte-solution" target="_blank">Intel said</a>.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the Atom x5 and X7 are more traditional Atom parts and represents Intel's first 14nm Atom SoC (Cherry Trail, as previously mentioned). They'll power next-generation tablets and small-screen 2-in-1 devices while bringing 64-bit support for both Windows and Android. Several hardware partners have already committed to using the new Atom parts, including Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, and Toshiba. Each of them are expected to release devices in the first half of the year.</p> <p>Atom x3 based devices will start at around $75; Atom x5 and x7 devices will enter the market place at $250 to $349 for mid-range options, and $350 on up for performance products.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_details_newly_branded_atom_x3_x5_and_x7_cpus_mobile_world_congress_2015#comments Atom x3 Atom x5 Atom x7 cpu Hardware intel processor soc News Mon, 02 Mar 2015 17:43:24 +0000 Paul Lilly 29513 at http://www.maximumpc.com Early Cherry Trail Benchmarks Disappoint http://www.maximumpc.com/early_cherry_trail_benchmarks_disappoint222 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="http://www.maximumpc.com/files/u46168/intel-tablet-soc.jpg" alt="Intel Cherry Trail Atom Chips will Power Windows and Android Tablets" title="Cherry Trail Atom" width="228" height="228" style="float: right;" />Cherry Trail shows only marginal improvement over predecessor in leaked benchmarks</h3> <p>Intel began shipping its new Cherry Trail Atom chips to its partners in the first week of January and now we have got our first benchmark scores. If you were expecting the <strong>5th generation Atom chips</strong> to be a huge improvement over current-generation tablet SoCs (systems on chip), you are in for a bit of a shock.</p> <p>The leaked Geekbench scores are of an Intel Atom x7-Z8700 Cherry Trail processor. The 1.60GHz quad-core chip managed <a href="http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/1898242" target="_blank">single-core and multi-core scores of 990 and 3451, respectively</a>. To put things into perspective, the multi-core score amounts to a <a href="http://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/compare/1394367?baseline=1898242" target="_blank">marginal improvement over the current-gen Atom Z3795’s score of 3193</a>. Believe it or not, the single-core performance is actually worse, with the Bay Trail part coming out on top with a score of 995.</p> <p>With Cherry Trail being the “tick” to Bay Trail’s “tock” — or, for those of you don't speak Intel, the 14nm die shrink of Bay Trail — a huge leap in CPU performance was never on the cards to begin with, but an improvement of around eight percent is unimpressive no matter how you look at it.</p> <p>Hopefully, the other chips will fare a lot better. And let’s hope there are substantial improvements when it comes to power consumption and graphics.</p> <p><em>Follow Pulkit on <a href="https://plus.google.com/107395408525066230351?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/early_cherry_trail_benchmarks_disappoint222#comments bay trail benchmarks cherry trail geekbench intel soc tablets News Mon, 02 Mar 2015 10:06:57 +0000 Pulkit Chandna 29510 at http://www.maximumpc.com Intel's Next NUC Could Feature Respectable Graphics Performance http://www.maximumpc.com/intels_next_nuc_could_feature_respectable_graphics_performance_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/nuc_0.jpg" alt="NUC" title="NUC" width="228" height="140" style="float: right;" />Get ready to game on a NUC?</h3> <p>Pint sized PCs are a thing now. Not that they weren't before, but with increasingly faster and energy efficient hardware coming out of Santa Clara, little boxes like the NUC (Next Unit of Computing) are fast becoming viable candidates for primary PC duties. That's especially true of <strong>Intel's fastest NUC yet, the forthcoming NUC5i7RYH</strong> equipped with a 5th Generation Intel Core i7 5557U processor.</p> <p>The chip is a Broadwell part that will power Intel's NUC 2.0 models, otherwise known as Rock Canyon, based on the literature <a href="http://www.fanlesstech.com/2015/02/exclusive-i7-broadwell-nuc-to-feature.html" target="_blank"><em>FanlessTech</em> got its hands on</a>. It's a dual-core part clocked at 3.1GHz to 3.4GHz with 4MB of cache and a 28W TDP. The real treat, however, is the integrated Intel Iris Graphics 6100, which Intel says will make its upcoming NUC "perfect for immersive gaming and applications that leverage the GPU."</p> <p>That's a bit of marketing fluff, though the Iris 6100 should prove capable of respectable gaming performance, depending on the title, resolution, and settings. The 6100 is the fastest GPU Broadwell currently has to offer, with 48 execution units and a 300MHz to 1,100MHz frequency. We've seen claims that it should be slightly faster than a GeForce GTX 820M.</p> <p>The NUC5i7RYH will also support up to 16GB of DDR3-1866 RAM and feature four USB 3.0 ports, internal support for an M.2 SSD card, internal SATA 6Gbps for a 2.5-inch drive, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, mini HDMI 1.4a and mini DisplayPort 1.2 outputs, and a few other bullet points.</p> <p>No word yet on when exactly the new NUC will come out or how much it will cost.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/intels_next_nuc_could_feature_respectable_graphics_performance_2015#comments broadwell core i7 Hardware intel Iris 6100 mini pc nuc NUC5i7RYH News Fri, 27 Feb 2015 17:22:25 +0000 Paul Lilly 29489 at http://www.maximumpc.com Intel Rebrands Atom CPUs, Hints at New Silicon http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_rebrands_atom_cpus_hints_new_silicon_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/intel_atom_rebranded.jpg" alt="Rebranded Atom" title="Rebranded Atom" width="228" height="172" style="float: right;" />Rebranded Atom chips follow Intel's Core naming convention</h3> <p>Intel is rebranding its Atom processor line so that customers will have an easier time determining the level of CPU performance at a glance. To do that, <strong>Intel is splitting Atom into three distinct levels -- Atom x3, Atom x5, and Atom x7</strong>. It's a similar approach to Intel's Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 naming conventions, which follows the good, better, best construct, and it will start with the next generation of Atom CPUs.</p> <p>"Intel Atom x3 processor provides basic, but genuine Intel-level tablet, phablet and smartphone performance. Intel Atom x5 processor has more capabilities and features for people who want an even better experience, and the flagship Intel Atom x7 processor provides the highest level of performance and capabilities for the Intel Atom family," <a href="http://newsroom.intel.com/community/intel_newsroom/blog/2015/02/25/introducing-brand-levels-for-the-intel-atom-processor" target="_blank">Intel explains</a>.</p> <p>The new branding is part of a larger breakdown that also includes three tiers -- Atom x3/x5/x7 for when mobility is a priority, Core M for a blend of performance and portability, and Core i3/i5/i7 for when performance matters most.</p> <p>While Intel didn't provide any details about the next generation of Atom that will kick off the new naming convention, we suspect it will be the company's 14nm Cherry Trail CPUs that are supposed to debut this year.

Fast forward to today and <strong>Shuttle is still making SFF systems, its latest creation the DS57U</strong>, the company's first mini barebones PC with a built-in Broadwell processor.</p> <p>More specifically, it's rocking an Intel Celeron 3205U dual-core CPU clocked at 1.5GHz. The chip is built on a 14nm manufacturing process and sips less than 15W, allowing for Shuttle to go with a passive cooling scheme. There's no fan to be found in the DS57U, which not only makes it quiet, but also less prone to sucking in dust, Shuttle says. Nevertheless, we still advise popping it open every so often to clear it of any debris that might have floated inside.</p> <p>That shouldn't be a problem -- there are two screws on both covers of the case. Just remove them and you have easy access to the DS57U's guts. Inside you'll find space for a 2.5-inch drive, two SO-DIMM sockets that support up to 16GB of DDR3L memory, and two mini-PCI Express slots, one of which is already occupied with a half-size WLAN module.</p> <p>Other features include a pair of USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, two RS-232 interfaces for connecting peripheral devices, DisplayPort, HDMI, audio ports, memory card reader, and included VESA mount.</p> <p>The <a href="http://global.shuttle.com/news/productsDetail?productId=1900" target="_blank">DS57U</a> is currently available in Europe for 192 euros (~$218 in U.S. currency).

The prediction has held up rather well since then. But with all due respect to its remarkable longevity and massive impact on technology, the many physical limitations to transistor scaling at smaller nodes have led many to conclude the <a href="http://www.computerworld.com/article/2503574/computer-processors/physicist-says-moore-s-law-is--collapsing-.html" target="_blank">famous axiom is on borrowed time</a>. <strong>Intel, however, looks determined to soldier on with Moore’s law beyond the 10nm node.</strong></p> <p>That’s according to comments made by Mark Bohr, senior fellow for logic technology development at Intel, during a <a href="http://www.pcworld.com/article/2887275/intel-moores-law-will-continue-through-7nm-chips.html#tk.rss_all?utm_medium=referral&amp;utm_source=pulsenews" target="_blank">call with reporters</a> to preview the company’s agenda for the 2015 IEEE international Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) in San Francisco. </p> <p>Although three of the five papers that the company is scheduled to present at ISSCC deal with existing 14nm process technology, Bohr will take part in a panel discussion on the the move beyond 10nm and the many challenges it poses.</p> <p>Per the existing roadmap, the company expects to move to 10nm in 2016 and to 7nm in 2018.</p> <p>"I still believe we can do 7nm without EUV [Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography] and deliver improved cost per transistor. I'm not going to say exactly how, because our competitors watch what we do closely,” Bohr said. </p> <p>He did drop a few hints, though: "We have published papers on <a href="http://www.kurzweilai.net/ibm-invests-3-billion-to-extend-moores-law-with-post-silicon-era-chips-and-new-architectures" target="_blank">III-V [three-five] device</a>s, so that's one example [of the new materials Intel could use to move to 7nm], but introducing any new technology will be about balancing performance against manufacturability [sic]." </p> <p>Bohr’s comments assume significance because EUV, for long considered the best bet to replace current 193-nm lithography and <a href="http://www.technologyreview.com/news/428481/the-moores-law-moon-shot/" target="_blank">extend Moore’s law beyond 10nm</a>, isn’t ready for prime time — in fact, <a href="http://www.extremetech.com/computing/178529-this-is-what-the-death-of-moores-law-looks-like-euv-paused-indefinitely-450mm-wafers-halted-and-no-path-beyond-14nm" target="_blank">hasn’t been for over a decade now</a>.</p> <p>"Scaling does continue to provide lower cost per transistor, and it is Intel's view that cost reduction is needed to justify new generations of process technology," he said, adding that it is <a href="http://www.v3.co.uk/v3-uk/news/2396311/intel-moores-law-to-continue-beyond-10nm-chips" target="_blank">crucial to recognize the importance of heterogeneous integration.<br /></a><br />"Going forward, heterogeneous integration will become increasingly important, but we may not be able to do it all on one chip, so you will see more use of SoC solutions such as 2.5D integration, where two are mounted side by side on a substrate, or full 3D integration, stacking chips on top of each other, each one tuned for a different [manufacturing] process to perform different functions.”</p> <p><em>Follow Pulkit on <a href="https://plus.google.com/107395408525066230351?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_sees_moore%E2%80%99s_law_continuing_beyond_100#comments Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography gordon moore intel Moore's Law News Mon, 23 Feb 2015 06:54:37 +0000 Pulkit Chandna 29455 at http://www.maximumpc.com Intel Rumored to Delay Skylake Until Late August http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_rumored_delay_skylake_until_late_august_2015 <!--paging_filter--><h3><img src="/files/u69/delays.jpg" alt="Delay" title="Delay" width="228" height="190" style="float: right;" />Waiting on Skylake</h3> <p><strong>Rumor has it that Intel is delaying the release of its 14nm Skylake desktop CPUs</strong> until around the end of August instead of late in the second quarter as originally scheduled. Keeping in mind that none of this is official -- Intel hasn't made any Skylake announcements that have to do with release dates -- a leaked slide earlier this month showed both Skylake-U (mobile) and Skylake-S (desktop) parts at the tail end of Q2.</p> <p>Both represent Intel's 6th Generation Core processor line and are considered "tocks" in Intel's alternating "tick-tock" release cycle (a tick is typically a die shrink of an existing architecture, while a tock is a brand new architecture). The desktop variant will require a new socket (1151) and will coincide with Intel's 100 Series chipset, which among other things will introduce a <a href="http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_skylake_chipsets_may_receive_significant_pcie_upgrade_2015">significant PCIe upgrade</a> with more lanes.</p> <p><a href="http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20150216PD207.html" target="_blank">According to <em>Digitimes</em></a> and whatever sources it has within the motherboard industry, Intel has supposedly put to the word out to mobo makers about the delay. If true, it's expected to have a sort of domino effect by screwing with the production and shipment plans for a Haswell refresh and Broadwell-U for the second quarter of 2015. It could also delay the development of Broadwell chips with a 65W TDP.</p> <p>This will also impact PC sales in general. Vendors were hoping to show off Skylake systems at Computex 2015 in June, and this obviously puts a wrinkle into those plans.</p> <p><em>Follow Paul on <a href="https://plus.google.com/+PaulLilly?rel=author" target="_blank">Google+</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/#!/paul_b_lilly" target="_blank">Twitter</a>, and <a href="http://www.facebook.com/Paul.B.Lilly" target="_blank">Facebook</a></em></p> http://www.maximumpc.com/intel_rumored_delay_skylake_until_late_august_2015#comments Build a PC cpu delay Hardware intel processor skylake News Mon, 16 Feb 2015 17:35:13 +0000 Paul Lilly 29430 at http://www.maximumpc.com
