Intel has announced their latest Xeon processor families, including the W-2400 and W-3400 lines. While there is still several months to go before the sales embargo, we are able to give a preview of how these processors perform in various content creation applications.
Intel Core i9 13900KS Content Creation Review
Following the success of the initial launch of their 13th Gen processors, Intel is now launching the Core i9 13900KS which is the first CPU to be capable of hitting 6 GHz at stock settings. But will this make any real difference for content creation?
13th Gen Intel Core Processors Content Creation Review
Following AMDs recent release of their Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors, Intel is fighting back with their own launch of the Core 13th Gen processors (code named “Raptor Lake”). Unlike AMD’s launch which moved to a new socket and added support for DDR5, the 13th Gen CPUs are a drop-in upgrade for the 12th Gen processors since they share the same socket and existing support for DDR5 memory. Even though the base platform is largely unchanged, however, we still expect some big performance gains in a number of content creation workflows.
AMD Ryzen 7000 Series Processors Content Creation Review
AMD has launched their new Ryzen 7000 Series desktop processors (code-named “Raphael”) based on the latest Zen 4 architecture. These CPUs support DDR5 and PCIe 5.0, with up to 16 cores with a peak clock speed of 5.7 GHz. Along with the increased frequencies and DDR5 support, AMD has touted a 13% IPC (instructions per clock) improvement compared to the previous generation. But, the question is, how will this all translate to real world performance for content creators?
Windows 10 vs Windows 11 for Content Creation: 8 Month Update
Windows 11 has officially been out for 8 months, and most applications now have official support for the new operating system. When it initially launched, we saw measurable performance issues with Windows 11 in content creation applications, but have those gone away now that the OS has had time to mature?
AMD Threadripper PRO 5000 WX-Series Content Creation Review
AMD’s new Threadripper PRO 5000 WX series of CPUs are here, providing greater performance over the previous generation while maintaining the large memory capacity and high PCIe lane count that Threadripper Pro is known for. But just how much faster are these new processors in content creation applications, and how do they fare against their main competition: the Intel Xeon W-3300 series?
