Ultrathin vs Ultrabooks

A couple of years all started with the launch of smartphones already did all that a computer had but undoubtedly the missing screen made them far to the notebooks, then came the Apple tablet and there appeared on the scene again the great question whether the iPad can replace a notebook computer. Then came with screens smaller than 13 or 11 inch netbooks and so-called contra-power missing ultrabooks arrived.

AMD now offers an alternative to ultrabooks which can cost up to 20% less. The ongoing 2012 CES innovations allowing for all the technology sector and in this case in the field of laptops. Thus the Las Vegas event reinforced the tendency for the market ultrabooks computers and Intel and the term responsible for placing on the field and stimulate the production of these models emerged greatly strengthened in 2011.

AMD’s response meanwhile has arrived, the company’s proposal is basically the same with the curious exception of the name, so instead of AMD ultrabooks suggests the production of ultrathin product, or Ultrafine notebook. Who broke the story was a specialized site, outside of the rumors in this sense because there were some data that were aired during the end of 2011. AMD’s intention is that their products are on the market since July .

To achieve this come into play at lower costs that AMD is able to generate in their lines. In this way the AMD ultrathin should cost up to 20% less in some cases. The big question about the news is on the ability of a product’s performance therefore cheaper in a generation of processors that appears to be under the control of Intel. It is believed that with Trinity APUs AMD manages to be more competitive in the laptop market as it currently is in the lines of conventional desktops.

In any case regardless of the effect of ultrafine compared to ultrabooks is true that the arrival of AMD in this market prices tend to jump down. Sources estimate that the company will be able to launch twenty models ultraportable different this year compared to 75 expected to run under Intel processors.

Review: Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition

Overview

Memory maestro Patriot has launched the Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition DDR3 4GB RAM kit specifically aimed at the AMD crowd. With the launch of AMD’s new Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), Llano, RAM is a vital performance component again.

Since the launch of Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture, there has been a whole raft of memory modules launched claiming to be the ideal support for the new chipset. Indeed, Kingston’s HyperX Plug n Play claimed the same thing, but with, it has to said, a lot more justification than most.

Well now it’s the turn of the thorn in Intel’s side, AMD, to get some memory attention. It’s been a long time coming.

OK, compared to some of the blazingly fast modules that have been launched to support the Sandy Bridge platform, Patriot’s Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) PC3-12800 kit may seem, well, a bit conservative to say the least. At just 1600MHz, it’s a little slow.

But even so, it does make a nice change to see a company giving some component love to AMD. Even if – marketing spiel aside – the memory will work in any modern motherboard, be it made by AMD or Intel.

Benchmarks

Patriot gamer 2 amd black edition

We tested all the Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition memory in an Asus F1A75-V Pro motherboard using an AMD A6-3650 APU.

Once we finished testing at stock speeds, we gave it a tweak but just using its stock 1.65V voltage setting. A quick adjustment to the bus speed got us to the next step up – 1866MHz. While the system booted up Windows perfectly and ran SiSoft Sandra’s memory bandwidth benchmark without a problem, when we tried to run World in Conflict there were all sorts of issues with the game freezing.

Eventually we got it to boot and run both benchmarks without any problems at 1840MHz, which is still a pretty impressive boost over the stock speeds, especially without having to tinker with any voltages.

Verdict

Patriot gamer 2 amd black edition

It’s been a long time coming but the Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition and others suggest we should now see AMD platforms getting some dedicated love from memory manufacturers.

That’s mainly thanks to the new Llano platform, with its strong memory performance, and AMD’s 990FX chipset and Bulldozer combo. It’s been a very long time since AMD had a strong enough offering to entice manufacturers into putting its badge on their products.

Hopefully these new platforms will see the end of one of AMD’s annoying platform traits when it comes to overclocking – they used to be quite fussy when it came to memory running at high speeds. So the prospect of getting ultra-fast memory kits designed for AMD platforms is an interesting one.

We liked


You wouldn’t class Patriot’s Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition RAM as a world-beater, especially at its stock 1600MHz speed. That said, it has bags of potential – as we found out during testing.

Thanks to its fairly relaxed 9-9-9-24 latency settings it does overclock very nicely, even at the 1.65V stock voltage. Even though it will reach the next step up from 1600MHz – 1866MHz – we couldn’t get it to run stably while playing the game World in Conflict.

We also liked the fact that the modules are low profile. You may be wondering why that’s of any importance. Well, wait until you get a large third-party CPU cooler, which usually make the first memory slot redundant. Normally it’s impossible to get a stick of memory into the slot because of these coolers, but with the Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition module you stand a fighting chance of actually using the slot.

We disliked


There’s not much to dislike about the Patriot’s Gamer 2 AMD Black Edition. It does what it says on the tin and shows some good overclocking potential. Its stock speed out of the box is a little conservative, however.

Final verdict

It may not be the fastest memory out of the box but it does show plenty of potential for the current Llano platform and the upcoming Bulldozer technology.

AMD Demonstrates Fusion APUs

Share Button

amdfad01

At Computex 2010, AMD has demonstrated the Fusion Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) that combine CPU, GPU, video processing and other capabilities in a single die.

The APUs support DirectX 11 gaming and HD video content.

In a Fusion whitepaper, AMD has disclosed that its first APUs, code-named “Llano” and “Ontario,” are designed for mainstream desktop and notebook platforms, “thin and light” laptops, netbooks, and tablets. Both of these APUs will combine multiple superscalar x86 processor cores with an array of programmable SIMD engines leveraged from AMD’s discrete graphics portfolio.

“The key aspect to note is that all the major system elements – x86 cores, vector (SIMD) engines, and a Unified Video Decoder (UVD) for HD decoding tasks – atach directly to the same high speed bus, and thus to the main system memory. This design concept eliminates one of the fundamental constraints that limits the performance of traditional integrated graphics controlers (IGPs),” AMD says.

The launch of the AMD Fusion Family of APUs is planned for the first half of 2011.
