AMD 8-Core CPUs to Boost Laptop Speed | an Overview

Bulldozer processors to rival Intel’s powerful Core i7-990X Extreme Edition.

AMD is promising faster performance for laptop and desktop PCs with eight-core processors that feature its Bulldozer architecture.
The FX-8150 and FX-8120 are the first Bulldozer processors to hit the market, and offer a speed boost of more than 50 percent compared to previous AMD chips.
Both belong to the re-launched FX chip family, which is aimed at gaming and high-end systems.
The FX-8150 has a base speed of 3.6GHz, which rockets to 4.2GHz in turbo mode. The FX-8120, meanwhile, runs at 3.1GHz as standard and 4GHz under load. Built using the 32-nanometer manufacturing process, AMD said the chips are unlocked and customizable.

“AMD has historically been about total performance and not thought to be competitive in terms of power efficiency.” said Rob Enderle, as analyst with the Enderie Group. “Bulldozer is a redesign from the ground up. It aims to put AMD back in the race for power efficiency, specifically with laptop computers.”
AMDs chips will rival Intel’s high-end Core i7-990X Extreme Edition processor, which is based on the firm’s Westmere architecture. However, Intel will soon launch an even faster Extreme Edition chip that’s based on its Sandy Bridge architecture.
Dan Olds, an analyst with The Gabriel Consulting Group, said the power boost and extra cores have a lot to offer  high-end computer users. With a retail price of 199 pounds, these eight-core chips can also offer consumers more cores per pound than anything on the market today.
But while AMD’s new processors stand to put the company back in the game, Olds said they aren’t “Sandy Bridge killers”, AMD still has a lot of catching up to do, he noted.

Windows 10 Text Looks Blurry and Fuzzy

While I am still searching for this problem, I want to share it here so if someone can support and can give me a detailed answer. First-thing-first, I am on a low-end desktop PC, and I am not sure if the reason behind this problem is my low-end PC or Microsoft Windows 10. Yesterday I switched to Microsoft newly launched Windows 10 on my desktop PC which I am using since last few years regularly only for Office Work, particularly for Microsoft Office documents. I do know that it has only 256MB of graphics memory but I thought to give Windows 10 a chance to operate my PC. The upgrading process from Windows 7 (32bit Home Edition) to Windows 10, was itself so smooth and interesting that I feel its something special from Microsoft this time, and yes it is. Why I am talking only about graphics memory of my PC because Microsoft didn't mention any thing about required graphics card of amount of memory (as far as I read about it), and my RAM and Processor is enough sufficient to operate W…
