The most important topics of the Schnapszahl issue 11/22 of the 22-year PCGH issue
Ryzen 7000: The cores of the future
The popular Ryzen 5000 series finds its successor in Zen 4, codenamed Raphael, and brings PCI Express 5.0, DDR5, a new TDP class and many questions that we clarify in the issue. In the first detailed test, Ryzen 9 7950X and Ryzen 7 7700X are in the comparison overview with standard settings, in Eco mode and with overclocking.
Extensive information smorgasbord: Nvidia’s RTX attack, Raptor Lake revealed and news about Intel Arc
New hardware news keeps popping up, which is why we summarize the current status in individual articles. What can we expect from Nvidia’s fresh RTX 4000 cards? What is the data situation on Intel’s Raptor Lake? And what about Intel Arc?
12,000 watts in check: 12× 1,000 power supplies examined in detail
With graphics cards that are already supposed to draw 450 to 600 watts, power supplies in the kilowatt segment are becoming the focus of gamers. We put a dozen power supplies through their paces with our finger on the pulse of the times. Including following up with the manufacturers in terms of retrofitting a 12VHPWR cable per model. You will find the following products in the test:
Asus ROG Strix 1000GAsus ROG Thor II 1000P2Be Quiet Dark Power 12 1000WBe Quiet Pure Power 11 FM 1000WChieftec Powerplay 1050WCorsair HX1000i 2022Corsair RM1000x 2021Deepcool PQ1000MEVGA Supernova GT 1000MSI MPG A1000GPhanteks AMP P1000G WhiteSeasonic Prime TX-1000
From the cable theory, internal and external peripherals, software, customization to energy requirements and performance in games. RGB lighting is an unstoppable trend that, depending on the luminosity, is reminiscent of colorful tuning cars from Tokyo: some could choke, others could fall in love. We take a closer look at the RGB environment around the PC and check the current status in practice.
Continuation of the series: No more upgrading – games with older GPUs in the test
Graphics card prices have been falling for some time, but current GPUs are still not really cheap – the world situation is still tricky and the successor generations are already in the foreseeable future. How well can an upgrade currently be avoided? This time with Elden Ring, Forza Horizon 5, Total War: Warhammer 3, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered and V Rising with the following GPUs:
MSI RTX 2070S Gaming X Trio, 8GAsus TUF RX 5600 XT Gaming X3, 6GGigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming, 3,5+0,5GPowercolor RX 560 Red Dragon V2, 4G
CPU socket history in the second part
Back to the 90s and early 00s: From gigahertz races, slots vs. sockets and the first duels between AMD and Intel on an equal footing. Why do CPUs from different manufacturers need different motherboards? What is an FSB? And who will be the first to cross the gigahertz threshold? We look back on the lively development of the late 90s.
High performance with RAM tuning?
We test how and with which DDR4 memory timings Ryzen CPUs can get going. You don’t have to be a superhero to exploit your PC’s performance reserves with clever RAM tuning. We show what is possible with a Ryzen 5000 system including DDR4 memory.
In addition to the usual indices for graphics cards and processors, you will find lists of hardware buyers’ guides, project PCs, shorter individual tests for things like Razer Basilisk V3 Pro Plus (mouse), Corsair TBT100 (Thunderbolt Dock), PNY Elite-X Pro ( SSD) and NZXT Canvas 27Q (monitor) also comments and annotations from the editorial team on the team page and the respective article sections.
