AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 Series of processors have arrived, promising faster performance along with new features like support for DDR5 memory. Compared to the Intel Core 12th Gen processors, the previous generation Ryzen 5000 Series fell behind Intel in lightly threaded applications like Photoshop. But will AMD be able to take the lead with the new Ryzen 7000 Series?
Intel is expanding their “Core” series lineup with the new top-end Core i9 12900KS. Compared to the 12900K, this new CPU has a slightly higher base and boost frequency, but in exchange requires a bit more power and has a higher price tag. Is it worth investing in this new model, or is it better to stick with the Core i9 12900K or one of AMD’s Ryzen processors?
