Intel recently unveiled its ultimate Core i9-13900KS processor, running at up to 6GHz out of the box, which is an industry record. Now great reviews of this CPU have already appeared on the Web.
The difference between the K and KS models has always been quite modest. Nothing has changed in this generation. In a number of applications, the novelty can bypass the Core i9-13900K by 5%, and sometimes the difference is only 1%. And more often the result is closer to the second value.
Fortunately, if you buy the Core i9-13900KS for some reason, then you won’t have to pay for this additional power consumption, since there is conditionally no difference with the Core i9-13900K. However, it should be said here that the generations of Raptor Lake already turned out to be incredibly voracious and super-hot at Intel. Ryzen 7000 also get very hot, but they get warm both with liquid CO and with a regular budget cooler – this is a consequence of certain work settings. The top Raptor Lake heats up even more, sometimes exceeding the temperature of 110 degrees and at the same time they also throttling. Considering that the Core i9-13900KS is 17% more expensive than its usual counterpart, it makes little sense to buy such a CPU in terms of price-performance ratio.
Of course, the Core i9-13900KS is the world’s first 6 GHz CPU, and it doesn’t matter that this frequency is achieved only on one or two cores. But this does not save the novelty from the position of evaluating it as a product. Actually, our colleagues from the TechSpot resource called the new product “dumpster fire of a processor”. The phrase “dumpster fire” literally means a burning garbage can, but it is also an informal phrase for describing a catastrophic situation.
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors have fallen in price in the US. 8-core Ryzen 7700X drops $104, top-end 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X drops $210
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper in the US, and from different retailers, and not somewhere in one place. So, prices have decreased on Amazon, and at Microcenter, and on the Newegg site.
The best deal on the Ryzen 7 7700X is $345. The processor dropped 104 dollars from the official price. For comparison, for its rival in the face of the Core i7-13700K in the US they ask for $418.
The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X has fallen in price more – by $ 132: the cost has decreased from the official $ 550 to $ 418. That is, there is just price parity with the Core i7-13700K.
The top 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X dropped $211 from $800 to $589. For the Core i9-13900K in the US, they ask for only a little more – $ 598.
These are prices on the Amazon site, but Microcenter has about the same discounts. At the same time, the Newegg and Microcenter sites have already fallen in price and the latest 65-watt Ryzen 7700 – by $ 10, but nonetheless. Recall that the Ryzen 7000 (without the X index) was presented only in early January.
Read speed up to 10 GB/s and cooling system with a fan. Corsair Announces Flagship MP700 SSD with PCIe 5.0 Support
Corsair has announced its flagship M.2 SSD, the MP700. The novelty, apparently, will go on sale in the coming months, but its cost has not yet been reported.
But the maximum data transfer rates for sequential reading and writing are known – 10 and 9.5 GB / s, respectively. In the picture below, Corsair even compared its current top-end MP600 Pro XT SSD to the MP700. The difference is noticeable.
However, the MP700 will be able to fully realize its high-speed potential only on the latest platforms from AMD (with processor socket AM5) and Intel (based on 600 and 700 series chipsets). The creators talk about the use of 3D TLC NAND memory chips in the SSD and support for NVMe 2.0 M.2.
AMD promised SSDs with PCIe 5.0 support back in November last year, but in fact there are only a few such models on sale.
Noctua has unveiled the NH-L9a low profile cooler for AMD AM5 processors. It is compatible with 65W Ryzen 7000 CPUs
Noctua’s range of CPU coolers has been expanded with the NH-L9a model for AMD’s latest Ryzen 7000 processors. With a height of only 37 mm, the NH-L9a can be used in very compact cases.
Obviously, due to its compact size, the cooler’s ability to dissipate heat is seriously limited – it is suitable for cooling Ryzen 7000 processors with a TDP of 65W. The design is a low radiator with two heat pipes and a fan with a diameter of 92 mm. The regular version of the NH-L9a is priced at $45, while the all-black version costs $10 more.
