Once again this week, numerous exciting articles went online at Hardwareluxx.de. We not only extensively accompanied the presentation of the new Comet Lake S processors or tested the mobile Intel Core i7-10875H, but also in time for the NDA case also the new Ryzen 3 models from AMD, namely the Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 put to the test. Our critical eyes also checked the integrated graphics unit of the Ryzen 9 4900HS for gaming suitability and the Ryzen 5 3500X, the Corsair iCUE H115i RGB PRO XT and the Honor MagicBook 14.
At this point we have summarized all articles from the past week and provided them with a small sample. In this sense: Have fun reading!
Thursday, April 30, 2020: Intel Comet Lake-S: The most important Z490 motherboards at a glance
With the tenth core generation based on Comet Lake-S, Intel again increases the maximum number of cores and sends the new platform into the race against AMD’s AM4 platform. For this, Intel is initially relying exclusively on the “new” Z490 chipset, which will form the basis for many new mainboards from MSI, Gigabyte, ASUS, ASRock etc. We have created this news as an overview for all new mainboard models … [weiterlesen]
Friday, May 1st, 2020: Intel Core i7-10875H in comparison test: The performance crown is partially gone
Since the beginning of April, Intel has been struggling again with a strong opponent in the notebook segment and was therefore forced to react to AMD’s new Renoir processors almost simultaneously. This has been done with the Comet-Lake-H processors of the tenth core generation, which offer up to eight cores with a clock of up to 5.3 GHz and try with all their might to secure the throne. After taking a closer look at the competitors in the form of the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS, it is now the turn of the Intel Core i7-10875H for a separate test … [weiterlesen]
Sunday, May 3rd, 2020: The integrated Vega graphics of the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS in the game test
With its new Ryzen 9 4900HS, AMD has already demonstrated impressively that, especially when it comes to multicore and render performance, it can also make life difficult for the competition in the mobile sector. But the actual domain of recent years is said to have been significantly improved in the generation comparison. In the area of integrated graphics solutions, the chip smithy promises a leap in performance of up to 30%. We want to check in this hardware luxx article whether you can actually play well with the Vega 8 in the Ryzen 9 4900HS … [weiterlesen]
Monday, May 4th, 2020: AMD Ryzen 5 3500X in the test: special case for Asia
Before the first Ryzen-3 offshoots of the third generation come on the market at the end of May and the AMD product portfolio is rounded down further, we want to take a closer look at a real exotic that is currently not available in Germany and that probably won’t exist in this country either. We are talking about the AMD Ryzen 5 3500X, which is currently only available in Asia. How the six-core does in practice without SMT support and full L3 cache can be found in this hardware luxx article on the following pages … [weiterlesen]
Tuesday, May 5th, 2020: Corsair iCUE H115i RGB PRO XT in the test: powerful and quiet?
Particularly powerful and still quiet – that’s what Corsairs iCUE H115i RGB PRO XT should be. We clarify whether the 280 mm AiO cooling really can keep this promise and put the competition in its place … [weiterlesen]
Thursday, May 07, 2020: PCIe 4.0 only via the Ryzen processor: All details about the B550 chipset
Together with the small quad-core Ryzen processors, AMD also introduces the mid-range chipset B550. We have been waiting for this for some time now, because rumors and reports have been around since the introduction of the current Ryzen processors. AMD makes no statement as to why it took so long to have a cheaper alternative to the X570. It will also take some time until the corresponding mainboards are available. Today AMD introduces the chipset, but the boards will only be available from June 16 … [weiterlesen]
Thursday, May 07, 2020: AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and Ryzen 3 3100 in the test: Small Ryzen big for gamers
With the AMD Ryzen 3 3300X and the Ryzen 3 3100, AMD is scaling its current Ryzen 3000 processors further down and is lowering the entry costs of its CPUs to just under 130 to 110 euros. With four cores and SMT as well as high clock rates and all the advantages of the Zen-2 architecture, the two could develop into new price-performance crunchers. In today’s comparison test, you can find out whether they can do it right on time for the NDA case … [weiterlesen]
Friday, May 8th, 2020: Honor MagicBook 14 in the test: Good middle class at an affordable price
The MagicBook 14 is Honor’s first notebook and, like the manufacturer’s smartphones, is aimed at the middle class with a comparatively low price. For around 600 euros there is a matt 14-inch display with Full HD resolution, an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U with integrated Vega 8 graphics unit, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD as well as many other, small details such as an LED backlight, a fingerprint sensor or a top-up webcam that can be sunk directly into the keyboard. In this hardware luxx article we clarify how the device performs in practice … [weiterlesen]
