When selecting a motherboard for your new Ryzen 7000 CPU, you will encounter three main options: X670, B650, and A620. But what are the differences, and what's the deal with X670E and B650E boards? Which should you choose for your system? This guide will provide all the answers and more.
Flagship laptops are like supercars: fun, fast and eye-catching, but with pricing that puts them out of reach of most people and features that many of us won't ever need. The Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo is a prime example of that.
The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is the Zen 4 3D V-Cache CPU that gamers should all be interested in, it's fast and extremely power efficient. Moreover, at $450 the 7800X3D is just $50 more than the 7700X.
In a nutshell: Team Red unveiled a new naming scheme for laptop processors last year to reduce ambiguity and imbed more information in its CPU numbering. New documentation indicates that AMD needs more signage to ensure customers can identify the processor architecture they're purchasing.
Pairing fast RAM with a top-end CPU is a logical choice, but what happens when that processor is a Ryzen 9 7950X3D with 128 MB of cache? Let's find out!
With extra L3 cache and lowered clocks for less heat, AMD is trying to make the Ryzen 9 7950X3D the best CPU for all scenarios. But how well does that work in reality?
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.
For months we've been gathering as many AMD X670 motherboards as we could to test their VRM performance and see if they can all handle the Ryzen 9 7950X without any kind of thermal throttling.
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.
At which point does the jump up from the affordable Ryzen 5600 to the relatively expensive Ryzen 7600 makes sense? That's what we'll be testing in this CPU and GPU scaling benchmark.
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.
