AMD has launched their latest Ryzen 7000 Series processors, which use a new socket design and thus require new chipsets and motherboards. To fill this role, AMD is offering two chipset models with two variants each. How do X670 and B650 compare? And what differences are found in the “extreme” versions of each?
Intel’s 12th Gen Core processor family initially launched with the top-end Z690 chipset, but in the months since that time Intel has added additional chipset options with varying feature sets. Now that several of those have been released, we are taking a look at the four desktop chipsets: Z690, H670, B660, and H610.
Over the last few iterations of their mainstream Core processors, Intel has offered many different chipsets with varying features. However, within each generation one stands at the top of the product stack, usually with naming using the “Z#90” convention. Today we are taking a look at the last three such chipsets: Z490, Z590, and the latest Z690 to see what has changed over the years.
AMD has three current chipsets for their mainstream Ryzen processors, each targeting a different segment of the market with appropriate features and pricing. What is the difference between each of these chipsets, though? Knowing that can help make sure you get the right motherboard for your next workstation PC.
Pix4D is an advanced photogrammetry application, suited to a wide range of uses, with a focus on handling images captured by drone cameras. Processing of those images into point clouds and 3D meshes/textures is time-consuming, heavily using a computer’s CPU and GPU. We have recently updated our benchmark tools for Pix4D, and now are taking a look at how different NVIDIA video cards perform in this program.
PhotoScan makes use of the video cards in a computer to assist with the computation of certain steps. As such, the model of video card used can have an impact on the amount of time those steps take. In this article, we take a look at the GeForce RTX 2000-series – based on NVIDIA’s Turing GPU architecture – to see how they compare to each other.
PhotoScan makes heavy use of the central processor (CPU) in a computer to run many of the calculations involved in turning still images into a 3D model or map. Different steps in that process utilize the CPU in various ways, though, with both clock speed and core count coming into play. Let’s see how the new 9th Gen Intel Core processors perform compared to existing Intel and AMD chips.
We take a look at the differences between the Intel Z370 chipset, launched in 2017, and the updated Z390 that launched in 2018. What features does the newer version add?
PhotoScan makes use of the video cards in a computer to assist with the computation of certain steps. As such, the model of video card used can have an impact on the amount of time those steps take. In this article, we take a look at AMD’s Radeon line – including the Vega 64 and 56 – and see how they stack up to NVIDIA’s GeForce 1000-series.
PhotoScan makes heavy use of both the central processors (CPUs) in a computer and the video cards (GPUs) to run many of the calculations involved in turning still images into a 3D model or map. Agisoft, the makers of PhotoScan, have versions available for both Windows and macOS – so let’s take a look at how these two, competing computer platforms compare.
