Core i5-13600K confidently puts Ryzen 5 7600X on the blades, while consuming almost twice as much

Large-scale tests of the Core i9-13900K showed that the processor is really very productive, but in general it is not faster than the Ryzen 9 7950X, much hotter, but also cheaper. Now it’s time to check out the Core i5-13600K, which is much more affordable with its official price of $320.

Recall that the CPU has six large cores, eight small ones and operates at frequencies of 3.5-5.1 GHz.

In the aggregate of a large number of various tests, the Core i5-13600K performed excellently. It’s practically equal to the Core i9-12900K and only a couple percent faster than the $400 Ryzen 7 7700X. That is, relative to its direct competitor, the new Intel is faster, because the $ 300 Ryzen 5 7600X is about 15% slower, which is noticeable.

As already mentioned in the previous news, the choice of a modern productive processor is best done based on the specific tasks facing a particular user. However, if we keep talking about Core i5-13600K versus Ryzen 5 7600X, then even in rendering applications where AMD CPUs are traditionally strong, Intel CPUs are faster.

However, this is given to him, like the Core i9-13900K, at the cost of huge power consumption and heating for its class. In Blender, this CPU consumes almost 190W on par with the faster Ryzen 9 7900X. The same Ryzen 5 7600X requires only 100 watts, which is almost twice the difference with a 15 percent difference in performance.

The average consumption in 45 applications is 104 W versus 60 W for a competitor and 80 W for an equal performance Ryzen 7 7700X.

In the same Blender, the new Intel heats up to 91 degrees, which is already close to the competitor. In games, the heating is in the range of about 70 degrees.

As a result, we can say that the Core i5-13600K can clearly bear the title of people’s six-core, although adjusted for the fact that it actually has much more cores. It is faster than its direct competitor, performs at the level of the more expensive Ryzen 7 7700X, but consumes much more power, especially under heavy load.

The latest 12 core processor Ryzen 9 7900X has fallen in

The Ryzen 9 7900X has only been on sale for a couple of months, but the processor has already dropped significantly in the US. If at the start of sales they asked for $ 550 for it, then a few days ago the cost dropped to $ 473. And now the CPU has become even more accessible.

You can buy the Ryzen 9 7900X from Amazon in the US for $440. Thus, after just two months from the start of sales, the CPU became more affordable by 20%.

Recall that the Ryzen 9 7900X operates at a frequency of 4.7-5.6 GHz and has 76 MB of cache, and a TDP of 230 watts. The discount is very good, but when buying a Ryzen 7000, you need to keep in mind the need for a fresh motherboard with an AM5 processor socket, as well as DDR5 memory.

The heart of the novelty is the mobile Core i9-12900H. For such a PC in the form of a Barebone-kit, they ask for $680, but now you can buy it for $570. Since we are talking about not the most energy efficient CPU, the cooling system here includes a radiator with three heat pipes.

The new PC also stands out with a fairly extensive set of ports. There is USB 3.2 (x3), USB-C 3.2 (x3), USB 2.0 (x2), HDMI (x2) and RJ45. With dimensions of 208 x 180 x 66 mm, this is a very worthy set.

The mini PC allows you to install two 2.5-inch drives, one M.2 format, and a pair of DDR4 SO-DIMMs. The base version with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage will now cost $680.

Nvidia has released a fresh driver for older GeForce 600 and GeForce 700 video cards. Support for these adapters has long been discontinued, so the new driver is only intended to fix important vulnerabilities.

Nvidia has released a fresh driver for graphics cards that were released 10 years ago.  But in games performance will not improve

More specifically, we are talking about two vulnerabilities CVE-2022-3602 and CVE-2022-3786 that affected mail servers and open source VPN protocols such as OpenVPN.

Unfortunately, the latest driver will not improve the performance of older video cards, as support was discontinued over a year ago.

However, some adapters of those times are still quite good for modern games, given their age. For example, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is capable of about 70-80 fps in Full HD in GTA V at maximum graphics quality settings, and even provides about 60 fps in The Witcher 3 at high settings.
