I have been having a problem for a few months with the video driver for my Dell laptop. The hardware/driver are from Intel. The driver from 2016-09-29 works just fine. It has a feature that I use regularly to rotate the display via hotkeys - very convenient for document reading. Unfortunately, all later drivers disable this feature. Also unfortunately, Windows Update keeps downloading and installing the latest driver. This means that I have to repeatedly re-install the old driver. Not a big problem but an unnecessary one in my opinion. After several iterations through Intel Support I was told (in …

I'm building a destkop and working somewhat on a budget. I have came down to 2 CPUS that I can choose from. I need to know which one of these CPU's would perform better and faster. The AMD APU A8 - 7600 or the Intel i3 - 4160? The AMD has more cores but on certain websites I see that they say that the Intel out performs the AMD. This to me is very strange as the AMD has more cores. Also, if I buy an AMD FX processor, do I need to buy a GPU for displaying my screen, …

Hello guys I have to make a test enviroment with two computers that both have VS2010 and Intel MPi installed. I finished installing the system today and I am trying to test it. Specifically I am trying to integrate the MPI library to VS. I have added the lib and include directories and during coding the IDE doesn't display any problems. When I try to compile though I get an "unresolved external symbol" error. The code I am running is a test case provided with MPi so it shouldn't have any errors. Thank you in advance

I've recently installed a new CPU (Core2Quad Intel) and my computer no longer stays on for more than a minute. All bios are updated and the computer runs fine on my old CPU (pentium d duo). The new CPU is cool to the touch after a shutdown, so heat is most likely not an issue. However, research suggests that a shutdown so quickly and abrubtly is heat releated, so is it possible that the new CPU somehow is 'tricking' the computer into thinking it's overheated? Heat sinks function fine, given the tempurature of the new CPU and the flawless performance …

The EE Times [URL="http://www.eetimes.com/news/latest/showArticle.jhtml;jsessionid=CK0UKKNE0NKJCQSNDLSCKHA?articleID=213402554"]reported[/URL] earlier this week that the Dell E4200 and E4300 laptops are running both Linux and Windows on the same machine. Why both you ask? The Linux OS provides a quick boot for checking email and other "light" computing duties while the Windows side allows "heavier duty" computing like running Microsoft Office applications. It runs with two chips, one from ARM and one from Intel. The ARM chip, provides instant on booting and is much more power efficient, while the Intel chip provides the juice to run apps that require more computing power. [B]It's Two, Two, Two …

With all this talk about cheaper laptops for the third world, it’s easy to miss how inexpensive memory has become for us members of the first. I once prophesized to a colleague that by the end of this decade, a terabyte hard drive would be available for less than US$100. I was referring, of course, to conventional magnetic hard drives. I wasn’t really going out on a limb.

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

Looking through my system information to see which hardware was good enough to keep and saw: Processor: 2x Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz How would you calculate your processing power: Is it 5.60GHz? Can it handle programs that require 3.00+GHz?

I have code that is very computationally intensive and very SSE-capable. The vs2010 compiler only supports up to SSE2 (from what I remember) So my obvious choice is to switch to a compiler that supports SSE4. I don't want to write any extra parallelizing code, (I just want to enable sse4 optimization) Does anyone know how to set up Visual Studio 2010 so that it uses an Intel compiler? (ICC 10 or higher i guess?)

Currently the proprietary drivers are installed and I have slow web browsing performance. What would be the appropriate fix?

ARM's ASM is a breed in it's own. AMD and Intel, although different, have more closely related assembler than most. Someone mentioned the other day that AMD is just an Intel repeat, basically copying engineering designs and repeating them with reduced cost (as they don't pay to have it designed, just built). Do you believe that there is any truth in that? Is Intel consistently ahead of the curve, or is it a more even balance? On a personal note, I've always used Intel.

I never liked Intel compared to AMD but lately I have used a few intel processors in laptops (older ones). The speed might be like 1.8GHz but it compares to like 2._GHz to amd cpu's... I want to build my own ultimate computer. I was going to use the AMD 1100T processor but was looking and found the Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.40GHz, obviosly it is .1GHz quicker but it is only $100 more instead of the usally $1000 processor by intel. It is socket 1155 so not vary common but seems worth it. I compared at this site [url]http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=Intel+Core+i7-2600K+%40+3.40GHz[/url], …

I am something of a Windows fanboy I guess, and will make no bones about the fact that I have always thought of the 13" Apple MacBook Pro in the same way that I have about Military Intelligence, European Community and Advanced BASIC: it's an oxymoron. Given that the smallest of the MacBook Pro range has often been outperformed by non-Pro labelled Macs, not to mention the non-Apple competition, I was almost expecting Apple to see the folly of its ways and scrap the damn thing altogether.

[ATTACH=RIGHT]16729[/ATTACH]Intel’s latest line of processors, code named “Sandy Bridge”, was designed with intense multimedia demands in mind. Although we won’t likely see a sandy bridge chip on the market until early 2011, we have learned a good deal of information in regards to the architecture of the processor. The greatest leap in design is the debut of silicon that is devoted to transcoding data. Think data conversion. An everyday example would be the transcoding of audio and video data when playing a media file that requires a special codec (QuickTime, DivX, i.e.) for playback or converting something between two formats, …
