BIOS Option Of The Week - Hyper-Threading Technology
06:15 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition.

Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.



This week, we will be taking a look at the Hyper-Threading Technology BIOS setting. Here’s an excerpt :
"The Intel Hyper-Threading Technology is an extension to the IA-32 architecture which allows a single processor to execute two or more separate threads concurrently. When hyper-threading is enabled, multi-threaded software applications can execute their threads in parallel, thereby improving the processor’s performance.

The current implementation involves two logical processors sharing the processor’s execution engine and its bus interface. Each logical processor, though, will come with its own APIC. The other features of the processor are either..."

AMD Carrizo APU Details Revealed!
10:45 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong

AMD revealed at the prestigious International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) that the upcoming A-Series Accelerated Processing Unit (APU), codenamed “Carrizo”, for notebooks and low-power desktops will deliver a wealth of new, advanced power management technologies while achieving substantial performance through new “Excavator” x86 CPU cores and a new generation of AMD Radeon™ GPU cores.

Using a true System-on-Chip (SoC) design, AMD expects Carrizo to reduce the power consumed by the x86 cores alone by 40 percent, while also providing substantial gains in CPU, graphics, and multimedia performance over the prior generation APU.



New high density design libraries allowed AMD to fit 29 percent more transistors on Carrizo – 3.1 billion – in nearly the same chip size as the previous generation, Kaveri APU. This density increase has allowed a larger area for graphics, multimedia offload, and integration of the “Southbridge” system controller on a single-chip.

When there are only two active threads, the Intel Core i7 will automatically ramp up two of its processing cores by..."Link : AMD Carrizo APU Details Revealed!/a>
