It's time we take a fresh look at DDR4 vs DDR5 memory performance using the Core i9-14900K. We're benchmarking with fast DDR5-7200 and DDR4-4000 memory, noting that these days DDR5 is cheaper than DDR4.
If you're in the market for a new system or platform upgrade, and you've decided to go with Intel's 14th-gen Core CPU platform, these are the new Z790 motherboards you want to be aware of.
Let's revisit the gaming performance of two budget CPUs from years past: the Ryzen 5 3600 and Core i5-9600K to see how they compare in today's games but also determine which platform has aged best.
A look at the CPU market and pricing to see what would truly constitute a Black Friday sale and give our advice on the kind of deals you can expect during the holiday shopping season.
For this month's GPU pricing update, we have Nvidia's upcoming GeForce 40 Super rumors, current-gen GPU pricing, and what sort of deals you should be looking out for during Black Friday.
Forward-looking: Chip making is a dirty, polluting business, with companies exploiting dangerous chemicals and producing huge amounts of CO2 to turn sand into technological wonders. Intel has published a new plan that aims to effectively tackle the environmental issue – at least when it comes to gas emissions.
Intel knew about the Downfall CPU vulnerability but did nothing for five years, a new class action claims
Following up with our CPU testing from last week: How do the 3700X and 9900K compare today, and how does the 9900K stack up against the 5800X3D? It's an interesting question and a great comparison to look back on.
Today we're taking a look back at CPUs released in the last 4 to 5 years, the Ryzen 7 3700X and Core i9-9900K. There's a good reason (but not an obvious one) why we chose these two CPUs.
