Intel Core i9-13900KS review

Today I will be reviewing this amazing piece of computing machinery that I have been very excited to get my hands on! The Intel Core i9-13900KS is an amazing CPU from the folks over at Intel. It cost me just about $649. I’ve been messing around with it lately and I’m here to inform you about everything that I love about it!My delivery was handled very well! I know this isn’t really considered a part of the review too much but handling of the package is very important to how the CPU as a whole is perceived. Installing the  CPU also went very well, I’m gonna guess that even a beginner could figure out how to install this CPU. I’d highly recommend this for any beginner PC builders out there. Now it’s time to discuss the performance.With a passmark rating of 61886, this is expected to be a great CPU! One of the most important things to a CPU’s performance is the CPU’s clock speed. This computer boasts an impressive E-core base frequency of 2.4 GHz and a P-core base frequency of 3.2 GHz. This CPU also contains 24 cores and 32 threads which really supports its power! It also contains a lot of cache to make its performance top-notch! It contains an L1 Instruction Cache: 8 x 32 KB, an L1 Data Cache: 8 x 48 KB, an L2 Cache: 8 x 2048 KB, and an L3 Cache: 36 MB! It also goes with the FCLGA 1700 socket that works with plenty of motherboards.

Overall this CPU is amazing! I recommend this to basically all PC owners out there! Cheaper PC builders might want to wait for a good deal though.

Intel Core i9-13900KS Review

This CPU worked amazing and I had no issues with it, I installed it into an ASUS Prime B760-PLUS Intel. I highly recommend this CPU. I didn’t have a single crash when using this CPU. During my 2 months of use of this CPU, I used it for gaming on high settings, watching movies, talking with friends, etc. It was a great CPU and I will probably be ordering another one to give to someone as a gift. 10/10

When using this CPU I was attempting to stress test the CPU by playing many graphically intensive video games such as Call Of Duty MWIII, Tekken 8, Cyberpunk 2077, and multiple more on high to max graphics, and this CPU performed amazingly. This is because the CPU scored a 61883 rating on PassMark. This is the best CPU in its category (at the time of this blog being posted). Once again, I cannot recommend this CPU more than I already have.

Fastest CPU Option AMD Ryzen 9 7950X Review


Once I bought my MSI MAG B650M MORTAR motherboard I wanted to get the fastest possible CPU which is the AM5 AMD Ryzen 9 7950X CPU. This CPU was the best decision and worked better than I was expecting.  I found this CPU on Amazon and it was $531.91. This price could change depending on the market and sales. At first, I was skeptical because of the price but after installing it I knew I made the right decision. I bought this CPU to be fast and be able to run any game and it is capable of that. When first researching this CPU the most impressive part of the product was the passmark rating.  This CPU’s passmark rating was in incredible 63101. Please note that this passmark rating can change if someone uploads a new rating. This rating as well as all my other information was found on the passmark CPU website where you can compare it to other CPU’s. I decided to run farming simulator 19 and it ran better than any other CPU I’ve ever had. It didn’t lag at all even with all of the mods I use that usually slows my game.

This CPU has an amazing clock speed of 4.5 GHz as well as having 16 cores and 32 threads. It also has and L1 instruction and data of 16 x 32 KB.  It has a L2 rate of 16 x 1024 as well as a L3 rate of 64 MB. This all together makes its amazing cache which runs my computer beautifully.

AMD Ryzen 5 7600x Review

AM4 was a success with it being continually used since 2016 with customers like myself being extremely happy with the performance of the AM4 lineup but now its time for a new area of CPUs. With AM5’s socket and its Zen 4 CPU microarchitecture, we can expect even better performance than the previous generation, and the Ryzen 5 7600x does not let down the expectations.

The Ryzen 5 7600x has 6 cores and 12 threads, and with a base clock of 4.7 GHz and a boost clock of 5.3 GHz, this CPU gives its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 5600x, a run for its money. The Ryzen 5 7600x has 384KB of L1 Cache, 6MB of L2 Cache, and 32MB of L3 Cache, which provides an ideal amount of core memory that allows you to do all the gaming and workstation tasks you need. This allows me to play Farming Simulator 22, Fortnite, Flight Simulator, and great FPS without having to buy the most expensive GPU on the market.

With a PassMark score of 28,650, and a rank of 273, this CPU nears the top 8 percent of CPUs on the market. My personal experience so far has been great with this CPU and I only have a couple of bad things to say about it. First of all, unfortunately, this CPU does not come with a cooler for the $228.95 that it costs on Amazon right now. It kinda stinks comparing it to Ryzens 3rd gen CPUs that normally came with a cooler when bought new. In conclusion, I would give this CPU a 4.5 out of 5 stars compared to the 4.6-star rating that it has on Amazon because of its ultimate performance, but if you use an AM4 chip right now, I would suggest waiting a little longer before investing in the AM5 socket so maybe you could snatch a CPU like this at a little better price.
