CPUZ 1.52 – With A New Look

Posted in Fun Stuff, Graphics, Site News, Utilities, Windows

The next release of CPU-Z, developed by CPUID, has raised some eyebrows. One of the most noticeable change is the revised dialog size to fit the new Intel logos.

In addition, a new validation button is added to the application, as well as a new tab named “Graphics”, which is intended to provide reports on some basic information about the graphic devices. Furthermore, CPU-Z will also be available in a native x64 version.

New Changes

  • * New design with “Graphics” tab.
  • * New 64-bit version.
  • * NVIDIA nForce 980a chipset support.
  • * Intel Core i5 and Core i3 processors.
  • * Intel Atom Z530, Pentium DC E6300 (2.8GHz) and Core 2 Solo processors.
  • * Intel P55 and US15W chipsets preliminary support.
  • * AMD Phenom TWKR support.
  • * AMD Phenom X2 “Callisto” and Athlon X2 “Regor” processors.
  • * AMD Opteron 6-core “Istanbul” processor.
  • * Improved support for Windows 7.
  • * New Intel logos.

TMonitor 1.01 Beta – from CPUID

Posted in Beta, Fun Stuff, Utilities, Windows

CPUID has just rolled out a new product – TMonitor 1.01 Beta. This application is aimed to display the active clock of each individual thread of a multi-core, multi-threaded processor.

The software has a very high refresh rate (~20Hz) that allows users to visualize the smallest clock variation in real time. TMonitor is able to detect mechanism such as Intel Turbo boost, and therefore allows to clearly visualize its effect as the processor is working.

Check out the image on the right to view the effect of Turbo Technology on an Intel Core i7 870 based on a Lynnfield core. Unfortunately, it only works on Intel Core 2 and Core i3/i5/i7 processors.

WordPress 2.8.4 Released

Posted in Business Software, Development Software, Linux, Mac OS, Site News, Web Apps, Windows

WordPress 2.8.4 has just been released to the public. This version is to patch a vulnerability that was discovered yesterday – a specially crafted URL could be requested that allows an attacker to bypass a security check to verify a user-requested password reset.

As a result, the first account without a key in the database (which is normally the admin), would have its password reset, with the new password emailed to the account owner. Although this does not allow any form of remote access, but it can be quite annoying.
