The Ryzen 5 7500F is AMD's most affordable Zen 4-based CPU, though it's still a bit of an elusive offering, in this review we'll be comparing it against its chief rival, the Intel Core i5-13400F.
When it's time for a CPU upgrade, it's crucial to assess your system and consider your specific needs first. In this article we ask five questions as a guide to assist you in choosing a new processor.
It's time for a classic AMD vs. Intel head-to-head gaming battle, comparing the Ryzen 7 7800X3D against the Core i7-13700K, both high performance CPUs and a close match in terms of pricing.
Following our series of CPU & GPU scaling benchmarks, it's time for a comparison between Intel's new Core i5-13400 and the tried and true AMD Ryzen 7 5700X.
In this explainer we support with data why testing CPU performance with a GPU bottleneck is a bad idea, so you can have a full understanding of our testing methods when reviewing CPUs.
The Core i5-13500 is Intel's new $250 offering, packing 14 cores, 20 threads and 35.5 MB cache. This is an interesting CPU that packs the larger L3 cache capacity of the Raptor Lake i5's for less.
The previous generation version of the Core i3-13100 was one of our favorite budget CPUs, so we're keen to see what this updated 13th-gen version has to offer.
Time for a massive benchmark comparison between the Ryzen 5 7600X and Core i5-13600K, covering 54 games across three resolutions using the GeForce RTX 4090.
In context: A couple of weeks ago we posted an update looking into how AMD's Zen 4 CPU launch fared and today we're back with a similar preliminar analysis, but this time looking at Intel's Raptor Lake launch. These are the two big CPU launches of 2022 and after examining some of the numbers, it's pretty clear that one release has gone a lot better than the other.
Every few years new processors with ever-higher demands for energy are launched. Is 250W for a CPU too high? Should any GPU need 450W? Let's peel off the heatsinks to look at the truth behind power numbers.
