Intel Core i5-10600K review: Core i7 performance on the cheap

When AMD launched their incredible Ryzen 3 3300X the other week, I called it the $120 Core i5 killer. At the time, I only had Intel's existing Core i5-9600K to compare it to, but finally we have its 10th Gen Comet Lake successor in the ring, the Core i5-10600K. Like the 9600K, this 10th Gen chip still has six cores to its name, but Intel…

Intel Core i9-10900K review: the best gaming CPU just got even better

When Intel declared their 9th Gen Core i9-9900K was the world's fastest gaming CPU at the end of 2018, it came at an astronomical cost. £600 / $580 was the asking price for the best gaming CPU money could buy at the time, which today could get you an entire RTX 2080 Super GPU. Thankfully, Intel have reined in the pricing for their brand-new crop…

Here’s where you can actually buy AMD’s Ryzen 3 3300X right now

The AMD Ryzen 3 3300X is a gaming CPU that blew us away when Katharine tested it the other week. Despite only having four cores to its name, it's a surprisingly powerful processor and its price is a very reasonable RRP of £115 / $120. That’s the good news. The bad news is that everybody noticed, and now it's in short supply as people clearly…

Feature: How to build a great 1080p gaming PC without breaking the bank

The RPS Rig: Everything you need to play games for less than £1000

It's been a while since we first introduced the RPS Rig, our £1000 PC build that includes everything you need to start playing PC games, during which time prices for our prized components have gone up, down, or disappeared altogether. So I'd thought I'd give it a bit of a spring clean, especially after last week's launch of the excellent AMD Ryzen 3 3300X CPU.…

Get an Intel Core i5-9600K for $190 at Newegg

If you're looking to bag yourself a CPU bargain before the arrival of Intel's 10th Gen Comet Lake chips, then the Intel Core i5-9600K is currently on sale for the next three days over at Newegg. Indeed, it’s still our favourite mid-range Intel CPU in our best gaming CPU rankings, and unless Intel's Comet Lake successor arrives on Katharine's doorstep with some kind of mystery…

The excellent Ryzen 5 3600 is now under £150, but should you get a Ryzen 3300x instead?

If you’re looking to give your PC a shot in the arm, the Ryzen 5 3600 is one of the most cost-effective processors around. Even at its original £200 asking price it was great value, and now it comes in even cheaper, available at £155 at Amazon, or even cheaper via Currys Ebay, when you apply the code PRICE8 and PRODUCT5 at checkout.This is undoubtedly…

Feature: An incredible gaming CPU for the money

AMD Ryzen 3 3300X review: the $120 Core i5 killer

AMD really outdid themselves when they launched their Ryzen 3000 CPUs last year, and the Ryzen 5 3600 was a particular highlight. It was excellent value in the face of Intel's more expensive (and cooler-less) Core i5-9600K, and it's been my processor of choice in both my best gaming CPU rankings and my RPS Rig build ever since it came out. Somehow, though, they've managed…

Feature: A great budget gaming CPU that's undermined by its $120 sibling

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 review: get the 3300X instead

AMD's Ryzen 3000 CPUs made a huge impression when they launched last year, with many of them speeding straight in my best gaming CPU rankings, while the Ryzen 5 3600 continues to be my CPU of choice in the RPS Rig. The only things missing from their initial line-up last year were their entry-level Ryzen 3 CPUs. At long last, AMD are finally filling out…

Get up to £50 off today’s best CPUs and gaming monitors at Currys’ Ebay store

Ebay vouchers are never simple, are they? One is doing the rounds at the moment promising 8% off all sorts of PC components and monitors, but it’s not clear which ones and why. Presumably Ebay believe that shoppers enjoy the thrill of the chase as much as parting with their hard earned cash, which feels... a stretch. Luckily, I've done the hard work for you…
