Posted in Landing Pages on 05/20/2020 by Eric Brown

Intel launched an update to its Core X series, bringing minor performance improvements along with massive price cuts. Read on for more specs and links to articles about how Core X-10000 CPUs handle many popular applications.


Photoshop CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen

Posted in Articles on 05/20/2020 by Matt Bach

When AMD released their Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs in 2019, they very slightly out-performed Intel's 9th Gen processors. Intel's new 10th Gen lineup should allow them to take back the Photoshop performance crown, but will it be by a noticeable amount, or just a few percent?


Lightroom Classic CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen

Posted in Articles on 05/20/2020 by Matt Bach

Lightroom Classic has a number of interesting performance quirks - chief among them the fact that AMD processors are overwhelming faster than Intel processors for a number of tasks like exporting and generating smart previews. Will this hold true for the new Intel 10th Gen processors, or will we see Intel take over as our go-to recommendation for Lightroom Classic?


After Effects CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen

Posted in Articles on 05/20/2020 by Matt Bach

Intel processors have long been our recommendation for After Effects workstations, although AMD's Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs closed the gap to the point that there was little benefit to using one brand over the other. With the launch of the new Intel 10th Gen desktop processors, however, Intel has the chance to regain the lead for After Effects.


Premiere Pro CPU performance: Intel Core 10th Gen vs AMD Ryzen 3rd Gen

Posted in Articles on 05/20/2020 by Matt Bach

When AMD released their Ryzen 3rd Gen CPUs in 2019, they were able to match (or beat) Intel at most price points. Will Intel's new 10th Gen lineup allow them to take back the Premiere Pro performance crown?
