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.

ASROCK's interpretation of the Radeon RX 6900 XT is visually thick: the 33 centimeters long and 1.8 kilograms heavy hum occupies three PCIe slots with its thick triple fan cooler. Due to design elements such as the rounded corners, the card still looks rather compact and massive. In contrast to Asus' custom design, which is kept in very dark black and gray tones, ASROCK starts with the cladding of the cooling solution and dresses the graphics card based on the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT in a colorful mix of black, gray and silver with red accents and a prominent ARGB fan in the center flanked by two unlit fans. The two ARGB zones are synchronized via ASRock Polychrome and offer an additional ARGB header. The cooling concept is rounded off by a solid metal backplate, which is kept entirely in black and gray and is also accentuated with red details, which is a bit more subtle and only stands out with the Phantom logo. A metal frame between PCB and backplate provides more stability.
0dB SILENT COOLING
0dB Silent Cooling technology stops the fan under low load so it can work silently.
Polychrome SYNC with ARGB LEDs
With the integrated ARGB LEDs you can create your own unique lighting effects that can be switched on and off. You can also sync the LEDs with your ASRock motherboard if it supports Polychrome SYNC.
Reinforced metal frame
An improved structure protects the PCB from bending.
Stylish metal backplate
With Phantom Gaming appearance, this stylish metal backplate makes Phantom Gaming series graphics cards more eye-catching and solid. In addition, the heat pad on the back improves thermal efficiency.
ASRock Tweak 2.0
Provides intelligent fan speed control and instant performance adjustment.
Supports 8K resolution
Not only can it handle 4K content, but it also supports the future-focused 8K output, bringing the ultimate visual experience.
A unique multi-monitor technology that allows a graphics card to output high-quality images to three, four, and even six monitors from a single computer. This reduces system complexity and allows multiple graphics cards to be combined and synchronized into a massive monitor wall.
DirectX RAYTRACING Experience Photorealistic Games
DirectX Raytracing (DXR) gives games a new level of graphical realism through effects like reflections, shadows and global illumination at real-time frame rates on AMD Radeon RX 6000-series graphics cards, thanks to AMD RDNA 2 architecture support for hardware-accelerated ray tracing.

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.
