  • Battling CPUs at $60 is going to be a tough call. Do you throw the best hardware around the chip that money can buy to compare the absolute limits of the hardware under ideal conditions, or do you keep it more reasonable for the price bracket it is intend...

  • The Intel i7-9700K received ample criticism at unveil for being the first “gaming,” S-class i7 in recent history to drop hyperthreading. The move was accompanied by an increase in physical core count to 8C, but followed the previous move from 4C/8T to 6C/...

  • Price. Limited value for money, Conclusion
  • Regardless of what your budget is, there's a CPU that can meet your needs without emptying your bank account. Faster and more efficient CPUs are released every year, so there's no reason to pay for more than what you really need. But if you're an avid gam...

  • By name and by marketing, the i5 CPU is most comparable to the R5 CPUs. The R5 2600's current $160 price-point makes it a less direct comparison, and the 2600X, which would perform about where an overclocked 2600 performs, is about $220. This is also che...

  • Battlefield V is playable on quad-cores but you can expect frequent frame dips, resulting in less consistent frame rates. For the most part, we've found that the older Core i5-7600K has been hanging in there pretty well with AAA titles released in 2018, b...

  • Abstract:  It's the age-old question that has spurred endless debate: AMD or Intel? Today, that rivalry has reached new heights with AMD's Ryzen 2000 Series, often referred to by users (but not AMD) as "Ryzen 2," competing against Intel's 8th Gen "Coffee Lake" for d...

  • If you look at the Core i5 8600 from a heavy workload point of view, it's sufficient. For your normal work PC, it's great, for gaming (dedicated graphics card) the Core i5 8600 is downright excellent. The high turbo's make it just as fast as the K model...

  • Abstract:  The most recent Intel CPUs have massively increased the number of cores and threads available to them. It wasn't that long ago that the majority of i5 and i7 processors were quad cores, whilst the i3 made do with two. The i7s had hyperthreading to help di...

  • The R3 2200G offers highly competitive performance at its price and, ultimately, really has no immediate competition. At $100, the CPU offers 78-85% of the performance of the R5 2400G at 58% of the price. Not bad at all. We can strongly recommend the R3 2...
