You've just bought a new CPU and it seems to run pretty cool, so you try a bit of overclocking. The GHz climbs higher and higher, it's surely not supposed to be like this? You rush to the internet to share your excitement of hitting the silicon jackpot, and within a few posts, somebody proclaims that you've got yourself a binned chip. But what is it?
Following up to our recent CPU comparison in competitive titles using low quality settings, we're pitting the Ryzen 7 3700X and 10th-gen Core i5-10600K against the 2700X to see how the previous-gen Ryzen stacks up.
We've have on hand nearly every Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card model in existence. We've tested them and now we want to share what are the best models, and more importantly, which one you should (and shouldn't) buy.
Today we're going to compare the Ryzen 7 3700X and Core i5-10600K in a number of games, but we'll be doing so with low or esports level of quality settings in games such as Fortnite, World of Tanks, Rocket League, and about half a dozen other competitive titles.
The world of CPUs has been notoriously busy in recent years and our buying guide is keeping up with the latest releases to complement our day-one reviews and benchmark comparisons. After all the extensive testing you're familiar with, TechSpot's CPU buying guide means to narrow things down in a few easy recommendations you can trust and follow.
