Today is the day of the start of sales of Intel Raptor Lake processors, and at the same time the day of publication of reviews. Finally, we can find out what new products led by the Core i9-13900K are capable of.
Recall that the Core i9-13900K has eight large cores and 16 small ones and operates at frequencies of 3.0-5.8 GHz for the former and 2.2-4.3 GHz for the latter.
Let’s start with the general results. As you can see, they are remarkably in line with the Ryzen 9 7950X. The difference of 0.4% in favor of the latter, of course, can be omitted. At the same time, the new Intel flagship is about 15% faster than its predecessor. However, modern high-end CPUs with a large number of cores are very dependent on software and its optimization. When choosing such a processor, users should first of all focus on those programs that are of interest to them for their tasks.
Therefore, if you still look more closely at the test results, you can highlight several aspects.
For example, in rendering tasks (Blender, Corona, Keyshot, V-Ray), the Core i9-13900K cannot compete with the Ryzen 9 7950X. AMD’s flagship is faster, and sometimes quite noticeable. But, for example, console emulators feel much better on the new Intel CPU. In scientific simulation software, the results are different, and it all depends on the specific program, a similar situation with video encoding and applications for working with AI.
That is, talking about parity between the Ryzen 9 7950X and the Core i9-13900K can only be very conditional. Test programs can be chosen in such a way that at least the first or second CPU seems to be significantly more productive.
But what can be said unambiguously is energy consumption. Already the last generation of Intel, with its impressive performance, was given to the company at the cost of a huge jump in consumption. This generation has gotten even worse.
For example, in the Blender Core i9-13900K, it consumes almost 300W out of the box and almost 400W when the power limits are removed. For comparison, the Core i9-12900K consumes 30W less, while the Ryzen 9 7950X is already 50W.
If we talk about the average for 45 applications, everything is much better, but still not in favor of the new Intel: it consumes 170 W against 133 W for the Core i9-12900K and 125 W for the Ryzen 9 7950X. That is, while AMD with Ryzen 7000 on average caught up with Alder Lake in terms of power consumption, Raptor Lake jumped even further.
And this applies not only to consumption, but also to heating. If the Ryzen 7000s seemed too hot, then the Raptor Lakes easily beat them. The flagship of the new generation under load in the form of the same Blender when using the Noctua NH-U14S cooler heats up to 101 degrees out of the box and up to some impossible 117 degrees when the power limits are removed. In games, the average temperature is 89 degrees.
The bottom line is that the Core i9-13900K averages the Ryzen 9 7950X in apps, it’s slightly faster in games, it’s much hotter and uses a lot more power, but it’s also cheaper.
24 inches, 165Hz, 120% sRGB, 1ms, very inexpensive. Redmi G24 gaming monitor drops to almost $80 in China
Inexpensive gaming monitor Redmi G24, which was released only in September this year, has already fallen in price. In China, on the official website of Xiaomi, the price of the device is almost $80.
It was released for a suggested retail price of $110, but early adopters were able to pre-order it for $85.
Redmi G24 features a 23.8-inch VA panel with Full HD resolution and 165Hz refresh rate. Declared support for technology DC Dimming, Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync. The monitor provides coverage of 120% of the sRGB color space.
The matrix response time is 1 ms, and the contrast ratio is 3500:1. Redmi G24 is equipped with built-in speakers. It received DisplayPort and HDMI connectors.
OLED monitors are becoming more and more affordable. LG asks $1,700 for 45-inch 240Hz UltraGear 45GR95QE
LG has revealed the cost of the UltraGear 45GR95QE monitor, presented in August: the new product is estimated at $1,700. Pre-orders will begin to be accepted on December 12, real sales will start on December 28.
The UltraGear 45GR95QE features a curved (0.8m curvature diameter) 45-inch OLED panel with 3440 x 1440 resolution, 240Hz frame rate, 0.3ms pixel response time and 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
The monitor supports Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes, is endowed with a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 connector, and a USB 3.0 port hub. The device is compatible with AMD FreeSync Premium and NVIDIA G-SYNC technologies.
The 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X dropped to $200 during the US holiday sale. Ryzen 7 5800X has become almost 50% more affordable
Black Friday in the US brought significant discounts on AMD Ryzen 5000 processors. Thus, the 8-core Ryzen 7 5700X model with a TDP of 65 W became available for $100 – on the Newegg site this CPU can be bought for only $200.
Ryzen 7 5800X is also 8-core, but with a TDP of 105W. It is offered for $238, which is $210 (or 46%) less than the official retail price at the time of debut ($449).
Significant discounts on processors of the ninth family. So, the 12-core Ryzen 9 5900X is offered for $349 (minus $202 from the official retail price at the start of sales), and for the 16-core ex-flagship Ryzen 9 5950X they ask for $479.
