Today we've got a classic head to head CPU battle in our hands, with a comparison between the Ryzen 7 5800X and Core i7-11700K, both of which are 8-core, 16-thread CPUs that cost around $400.
Here's our monthly update looking into the current state of the CPU and graphics card markets. The good news is that one of the two is looking quite healthy, while the other is looking perhaps even worse than it was a month ago.
The Ryzen 5 5600H is AMD's new mainstream H-series processor aimed at power-oriented budget laptops. Set to replace last year's hit in the R5 4600H, the 5600H brings Zen 3 upgrades to the segment.
Recently I found testing Intel B560 boards so frustrating that I had to stop to warn readers of the possible pitfalls when buying one such board. Our findings are alarming and something all potential buyers should know.
With ongoing component shortages and insane graphics card prices, a pre-built gaming PC that gets you a new fast GPU suddenly looks like a very reasonable option that we must consider.
Fast storage has become a true commodity and hopefully it will only get bigger and faster. Today's best choices are differentiated by how extreme you want to go and how willing you are to pay for the very best.

The Core i7-11370H is part of the Tiger Lake H35 line-up that bridges the gap between the UP3 series for ultraportables, and the 45W H-series chips used for work and gaming machines. Unfortunately, it fails at it.
Today we're taking a look at the VRM thermal performance of 8 entry-level Intel Z590 motherboards, which does not mean these are affordable for everyone, but they are considered budget-conscious Z590 motherboards with prices starting at $170.
As stock shortages of CPUs and graphics cards continues, it's time for an update on the market to see what the current situation is looking like, and whether there will be any relief for buyers in the coming weeks.
The Ryzen 7 5800U is AMD's answer to Intel's Tiger Lake and is their fastest available chip for ultraportable and ultrathin laptops. This is the first Ryzen Mobile 5000 U-series processor to land in our office.
