The Ryzen 7 7800X3D can hit framerates that can even surpass the 7950X and 13900K, all while costing less and consuming less power.
Intel's newest Core i9 has more cores and performance than ever before, taking back the short-lived crown from AMD.
Not that long ago, we were proudly declaring the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X as the biggest, baddest CPU on the planet. It wasn't without its flaws, but the results spoke for themselves. However, AMD is no longer in a league of one because Intel has answered right back with the Core i9-13900K. In some regards, this 13th-generation upgrade is a minor one over the 12th, but in others, it's a substantial leap.
Has Intel done it again and built the best CPU for gaming PCs? You better believe it did.
There was a time when many gamers, system builders, and enthusiasts would pass by the Intel Core i5. It's not that it was bad, but it was a little uninteresting for many years. That changed with the Core i5-12600K, so we've been waiting (im)patiently for its successor. And that successor is now here, unsurprisingly called the Intel Core i5-13600K.
It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but AMD's new Ryzen 7000 processors are the best CPUs that you can get right now. After all, these things tend to go in cycles, so it should be no surprise that the new chips comfortably outperform Intel's last-gen CPUs.
