Cinebench 2024 is with with new features and expanded compatibility. We look into what these features are and what this update means for benchmarking.
Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling is a behind-the-scenes change in Windows to move processing GPU requests from the CPU to the GPU. Does enabling the feature have any impact on content creation performance?
DDR5 memory has kits rated for up to 8400 Mbps, while desktop CPUs only officially support up to 5600 Mbps. How much does running at official specifications actually impact performance in common content creation applications?
AMD’s Ryzen X3D processors promise incredible performance for gamers and creators. But does the additional cache increase performance for content creation?
Intel has released its latest Xeon W-3400 processors, featuring up to 56 cores and eight channel DDR5 memory. Are these new processor enough for Intel to take the performance crown from AMD for content creation?
Intel has released its latest Xeon W-2400 processors, featuring up to 24 cores and quad channel DDR5 memory. Although the W-2400 is not as powerful as Intel’s W-3400 line, it is expected to compete well with AMD’s lower core count Threadripper Pro processors for several content creation workflows.
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.
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?
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?
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.
