The purchase argument for the fastest gaming CPU was previously reserved for Intel processors. But with the new Ryzen processors of the 5000 series, this changes. The single-core performance could be increased drastically and the Intel Core i9-10900K remains around 20 percent behind the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X.
The somewhat slower Ryzen 7 5800X also has an easy time with the 10 core. Even the multi-core performance is much better with the 8-core. The success story of AMD continues with the new models of the Ryzen 5000 family and for the first time the current Ryzen CPUs are faster than Intel's Core i9-10900K when gaming. AMD does not pack even more CPU cores under the heatspreader, but fundamentally changes the structure of the CCX in order to increase the IPC. This is exactly where the new Ryzen 5000 can convince and outclass the old top dog in many single CPU benchmarks. Last but not least, the higher single-thread performance also has a significant impact on the multi-core performance.

Together with the addressable ENERMAX SquA RGB fans, AQUAFUSION can create a dynamic visual experience via the mainboard software or the included control box. The ENERMAX SquA RGB fans generate a strong, centered air pressure through the Vortex frame construction in order to quickly dissipate the heat from the cooler. Thanks to the dual-chamber design patented by ENERMAX, the Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) and the Shunt Channel Technology (SCT), the cooler achieves faster heat transfer and a longer service life. AQUAFUSION is a unique cooling solution for special gaming rigs or spectacular system builds for Intel and AMD CPUs.
AQUAFUSION is an all-in-one CPU water cooler with pre-filled coolant. This makes a water cooler as simple as a regular air cooler. Easy installation and no maintenance. The fully sealed design ensures minimal liquid evaporation and long service life.
With colorful lighting and quiet cooling, AQUAFUSION is best suited for case mods and gaming systems.
The patented two-chamber design isolates the pump from the heated coolant and extends the life of the radiator. The cold coolant enters the first chamber with the pump and is then pushed through the cold plate to absorb the heat. The heated coolant is collected in the second chamber and then transported to the radiator for cooling.
Central Coolant Inlet (CCI) injects the coolant in the center above the CPU and distributes it evenly across the cold plate using patented Shunt Channel Technology (SCT). The result is a shorter coolant flow path and faster heat transfer.
The premium RGB water block with 3D layered design and Aurabelt™ lighting is capable of creating colorful rainbow effects with 16.8 million colors. Synchronizable RGB lighting is possible via addressable RGB headers on Asus, Asrock, MSI and Gigabyte motherboards.
ENERMAX SquA RGB fans support addressable RGB technology for a unique RGB lighting experience. The fan is equipped with a vortex frame that can generate a centered, stronger air pressure that is optimized for radiators. The frame of SquA RGB is equipped with rubber damping pads to prevent vibration transmission to the case.

ASUS has now renamed the formerly independent TUF series (The Ultimate Force) to "TUF Gaming" and has been the entry point into the ASUS gaming world ever since. The ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi) is characterized by the colors black, gray and a little yellow. The I/O panel and the PCH fan are encased in a plastic cover. Fortunately, a passive cooler is pre-installed for the lower M.2 connection.
With the X570-FCH, AMD is taking a big step forward compared to the X370 and X470-FCH, because the X570-FCH is the first chipset to establish the PCI Express 4.0 feature in the desktop segment. At the same time, the number of lanes increases from 8 to 16, of which 12 can be flexibly distributed by the mainboard manufacturer. The CPU and chipset are connected via a downlink and uplink with PCIe 4.0 x4 (Ryzen 3000).
The adjustable RGB lighting on the lower right side provides visual accents. With the TUF Gaming X570-Plus Gaming, manufacturer ASUS relies on high-quality materials and clean manufacturing. The engineers paid special attention to the capacitors, which had to go through a strict quality test. In general, the layout of the board is well thought out.
ASUS installs four DIMM sockets (dual channel) on the mainboard. With current 32 GB memory kits, you could create a more than sufficient memory expansion to 128 GB (max. 3,200 MHz, 4,400 MHZ in the OC). In order to be able to avoid the problem of possible overheating, the manufacturer installs two passive heat sinks (voltage converters) and an active chipset cooler (fan) at the factory. ASUS has given the board a digital power supply that can access 6+2 phases (6 phases for the CPU; 2 phases for the memory). With the new X570 boards, ASUS advertises the so-called SafeSlot, which the manufacturer describes as a particularly hard-wearing version of a PCIe slot with metal reinforcement. This should offer potential advantages when using heavy high-end graphics cards.
Positive characteristics of the ASUS TUF Gaming X570-Plus (Wi-Fi):
very good performance with a sufficient CPU power supply
Sufficient equipment, including eight SATA 6GBit/s interfaces and three USB 3.1 Gen2 sockets
good overall performance, good stability and good energy efficiency when idle
two M.2 M-Key interfaces (PCIe 4.0 x4)
WLAN-ac up to 1.73 GBit/s and Bluetooth 5.0 for the Wi-Fi version

SEAGATE BarraCuda Compute 4TB, 3.5", 256MB, SATA 6Gb/s, form factor 3.5", 20mm, cache 256MB, power consumption 3.7W (operation), 2.5W (idle), noise level 24dB(A) (operation), 22dB(A) (idle), recording method Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR), Drive Managed SMR, sectors 4KB with emulation (512e).
After Hitachi and Western Digital, Seagate is now also offering a 4 terabyte model for desktop PCs. On the other hand, the manufacturer has the edge in terms of data density with 1000 GB per magnetic disk.
The rotational speed of the is only 5400 instead of 7200 revolutions per minute, as was previously the case with the Barracudas. This ensures lower power consumption, but at the expense of the transfer rates. However, Seagate compensates for this slowdown with the high data density and packs a whole terabyte onto a magnetic disk. According to the manufacturer, this corresponds to up to 340,000 data tracks on a width of around 25 millimeters. Converted, the track width is only 75 nanometers.
This requires extremely precise control of the read/write heads. To do this, Seagate uses AcuTrac technology, which constantly determines the flying height of the heads via two sensors and compensates for it with the finest temperature changes in the carrier material. In addition, Seagate uses Advanced Format technology to increase the sector size from 512 bytes to 4 kilobytes - this reduces the additional memory requirements for address and check bits, which are then available for user data.
The sequential transfer performance of the 4 TB drive from Seagate is impressive: the 3.5-inch hard drive achieves a maximum of almost 175 MB/s. In the particularly fast burst mode, in which the hard disk transfers data directly via the 64 MB buffer memory, the transfer rate even climbed to almost 250 MB/s.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
