CPU Pricing and Value: Intel. No problems wit this. Though with the recent price cuts, It's probably a tie.

Realistically, these results suggest what we already know from the specs: The Core i5-13600K and the Core i5-14600K are more or less the same chip in practical terms, even if the specs vary a smidge. Performance versus the AMD Ryzen 7 7700X and AMD Ryzen 5 7600X remained competitive, with the two Core i5 processors far ahead of their rivals in all tests except for Adobe Photoshop, which let the Ryzen 7 7700X have a rare win. Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics only: to use the Intel® Iris® Xe brand, the system must be populated with 128-bit (dual channel) memory. Otherwise, use the Intel® UHD brand. OS: Windows 11* Windows 10* Windows Server 2022 family* Windows Server 2019 family* Windows 10 Family* Windows 8 family* Windows 7 family* Windows 11 Family* If you're planning to buy a CPU, the best thing to do is to look for more than one review (at least 3) and build up a geomean in your mind, observing the relativity. It’s also notable that the Core i5-13600K has 24MB of L3 cache, 4MB more than the Core i5-12600K. That’s in addition to 20MB of L2 cache, which is slightly more than double the 9.5MB of L2 cache found on the Core i5-12600K.Despite the reduced pricing, the Ryzen chips face other challenges that come in the form of high memory and motherboard pricing. We dove in deep on those issues here.

Intel Core i5 14600K vs i5 13600K - NanoReview Intel Core i5 14600K vs i5 13600K - NanoReview

Intel Authorized Distributors sell Intel processors in clearly marked boxes from Intel. We refer to these processors as boxed processors. They typically carry a three-year warranty. The Intel Core i5-13600K vs AMD Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X rivalry is a heated battle in the heart of gamer country — the mid-range price points — with Intel's 13th-Gen Raptor Lakex86 hybrid architecture squaring off against AMD's chiplet-based Zen 4 Ryzen 7000family. These two fundamentally different approaches have shaken up our list of the best CPUs for gaming as the Intel vs AMDbattle enters a new phase. All in all, the Core i5-14600K did exactly as we expected in testing, matching the Core i5-13600K in almost every way. However, the difference is so slim as to leave us questioning why we would recommend it over the previous generation. We can’t really see any advantage to owning the Core i5-14600K over the Core i5-13600K, and we actually can see some disadvantages to it.Given this information, it seemed likely that these processors would trade places, depending on the test, but instead the Core i5-13600K performs better in every test. It doesn't win by a wide margin in some tests, but it does win. The Core i5-12600K, for its part, was left in the dust, and the Core i5-13600K even manages to perform slightly better than the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X in a few tests. (That said, the Core i5 lost to the 16-core/32-thread Ryzen 9 7950X badly in most tests, as you'd expect.)

Intel Core i5-13600K Review - Best Gaming CPU | TechPowerUp

Nice comparison of the cheaper current-gen CPUs. And Intel sure offers more options at the moment, such as being able to use a Z690 MB, one may already have with DDR4, to upgrade the CPU with. Pricing continues to be an issue for AMD's Ryzen 7000. Intel's very aggressive pricing gives it the overall lead against AMD's competing Ryzen 7000 chips, even after AMD's recent unofficial price adjustments. That applies even more so if you're building a DDR4 system. AMD only supports DDR5 memory, so you won't have the option for lower-priced memory like you do with the Raptor Lake processors. DDR4-equipped motherboards also tend to be less expensive, too. The Core i5-13600K vs Ryzen 7 7700X and Ryzen 5 7600X battle ends in a five-to-three win in Intel's favor, though each of the Ryzen chips has its own distinct advantages and disadvantages in our different categories.So I went for DDR5, with "just" a Ryzen 5 7600X for the time being though - and I will eventually upgrade the CPU to possibly one with 3D V-Cache later. The big concern we have here: The climbing price of Core i5 processors will also likely mean budget-friendly options released further down the road will also cost more. This is a trend we have seen far too much of in recent years, and Intel certainly isn’t alone here, but that doesn’t counter our disappointment at this generational price increase. Price higher than equivalent last-gen chip, Power-hungrier than before, Runs hotter than Core i5-12600K Truthfully, I cherish the Core i5 13600K. This is what a gamer needs, appropriately fast and reasonably affordable. The new processor will undoubtedly deliver on many fronts and then has some extra reserve. It'll be fun to tweak with, and offers great gam...
