der8auer Delids the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Processor

Famous overclocker der8auer has delidded the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor in his latest YouTube video. He's done this to evaluate if the benefits justify the risk. The IHS on the new Pinnacle Ridge processors is soldered directly to the die with Indium, so the delidding process is a little more difficult than before.

AMD Ryzen 7 2700X GeekBench Results Surface

As we get closer and closer to the launch of AMD's 2000-series desktop processors more and more benchmark results keep leaking out. Today we have GeekBench results for the Ryzen 7 2700X, which gives us an idea of its performance as well as performance improvement over the previous generation.

Intel Prepping Core i9-9700K With 8 Cores and 16 Threads

The new flagship could be the Intel Core i9-9700K. This processor could pack in 8 cores and 16 threads on the very small 10nm Cannon Lake CPU architecture. Now we should expect the Core i9-9700K to have moderate clock speeds, but where it really is going to shine is multi-tasking with its 8-cores and 16-threads compared to the i7-8700K's 6-core, 12-thread configuration.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor Review

Back when AMD launched their Ryzen 5 processors earlier this year it was the first time we saw a 6-core desktop processor in the mid-range mainstream line. At this time Intel was still on quad-core parts on their Core i7 and Core i5 SKUs. Of course just recently Intel launched their 8th Generation Core desktop processors, which do included both Core i5 and Core i7 6-core SKUs. So it seems the playing field has leveled a bit, with Intel basically being forced to add more cores to their desktop processors to catch up with AMD. So now as buying season is upon us we can give you a clear picture oh how all of the current processors stack up against each other as we just got a Ryzen 5 1600 in to review. This 6-core, 12-thread processor has a base clock of 3.2 GHz and boosts up to 3.6 GHz, it is fully unlocked as well. Let's get this chip on our test bench and see what it can do!

Intel Core i5-8400 Processor Review

Yesterday we took a look at Intel's flagship 8th Generation Core Desktop processor, the Core i7-8700K. While that processor sits at the top of the product stack, today we are checking out one of the new Core i5 chips. It is the Core i5-8400 which is the only other 8th Generation Core i5 chip besides the Core i5-8600K. For the first time we are also seeing a 6-core Core i5 chips, much like the new i7's. This means we are going to see a nice performance increase over the previous generation. The Core i5-8400 has six cores, six threads (since no HyperThreading), a base clock of 2.8 GHz and boosts up to 4.0 GHz. Unlike the K-series chips you have a lower TDP of only 65W. This chip also comes in at a very attractive price point of only $182. Let's take it for a spin and see how it does!

Intel Core i7-8700K Processor Review

When AMD launched their Ryzen processors back in March things were a little shaky at first with stability and memory issues, which we talked about in our review of the Ryzen 7 1700X. Over time many of those problems were solved with micro-code and BIOS updates and Ryzen proved to be a real contender in the CPU market, even <a href="https://www.thinkcomputers.org/amd-cpu-sales-overtake-intel-for-the-first-time-in-over-a-decade/" rel="noopener" target="_blank">out-selling Intel parts</a> at some major retailers. Needless to say AMD really shook up the Desktop CPU market with their Ryzen processor, offering an alternative to Intel's Core i7, Core i5, and Core i3 CPUs. This is the first time in a while we've seen real competition in the CPU market, and we definitely like it! Today Intel is officially launching their 8th Generation Core desktop processors with the Core i7-8700K leading the pack. These processors are Intel's first real response to Ryzen, and we finally have a core-count increase on a mainstream desktop processor! That is right, the Core i7-8700K is a 6-core, 12-thread part! It has a base-clock of 3.7 GHz, boosts up to 4.7 GHz, and being a "K" series processor it is fully unlocked. Let's dive into the new 8th Generation Core Series and see how stacks up against AMD's Ryzen Processors.
