Adobe Creative Cloud Performance: Intel 6th Gen to 13th Gen
Modern content creation workstations are incredibly powerful, but just how much faster is a system today versus one 2, 4, 6, or even 7 years ago?
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Content Creation Review
NVIDIA is continuing their new RTX 40 Series GPUs with the new RTX 4080 16GB. How does this new card perform in the real world, and is it worth considering in your next content creation workstation?
1-7x NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 GPU Scaling
Introduction About a month ago, NVIDIA began rolling out their new RTX 40 series GPUs, starting with the GeForce RTX 4090 24GB. The RTX 4090 is an incredibly powerful GPU, and in our content creation review, it easily blew past anything else on the market. In that same article, we included test results in both
Intel Core i9 13900K: Impact of MultiCore Enhancement (MCE) and Long Power Duration Limits on Thermals and Content Creation Performance
Intel’s 13th Gen processors bring terrific performance across the board, but many modern processors have been criticized for their high power draw and heat output. However, we have found that most CPUs only operate at these high temperatures when the motherboard BIOS is allowed to automatically overclock the processor above the official Intel specifications. Does running them at reference speeds impact performance, and how much of a difference does it make for thermals?
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.
V-Ray: 13th Gen Intel Core vs AMD Ryzen 7000
