Intel’s tenth generation octa-core hyperthreaded i7-10700K is one of the fastest high-end desktop CPUs ever made. A simple overclock yields all 16 threads running at a staggering 5.1 GHz. Gaming and desktop performance is second only to the flagship i9-10900K. Although a new (Z490) LGA1200 motherboard is required, it will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. The 10700K’s $400 USD price tag puts it in a similar price band to AMD’s 12-core hyperthreaded Ryzen 9 3900X, however, the 10700K’s faster cores combined with its lower memory latency, yield a 12% effective speed advantage over the 3900X. Intra-generationally comparing the 10700K and 10600K shows that the 10600K offers almost identical gaming performance for 34% less money. [Jun '20 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 7 5800X is one of four new processors from AMD’s latest range of Zen 3 CPUs. The new architecture is more power efficient than Zen 2 and also yields significant performance improvements. All four new CPUs have the ‘X’ nomenclature, indicating that they are tuned to their maximum clock speeds out-of-box. The 5800X has 8 cores and 16 threads with base/boost clock speeds of 3.8/4.7 GHz, 36 MB of cache and a 105W TDP. At $449 USD, the 5800X is relatively expensive, but it still offers better value than the 5900X. A 500 series motherboard is recommended but the new Zen 3 CPUs will work with most 400 series motherboard following a BIOS update (expected in Q1 2021). At AMD’s launch presentation, they said they finally had the best CPUs for gaming. Our benchmarks show that the 5800X is comparable to Intel’s $250 USD cheaper i5-9600K. Gamers that do not wish to pay “marketing fees” can invest those savings in a better GPU which will produce an unquestionably better gaming PC. [Nov '20 CPUPro]
