Last week, the community showed not only clear voting results for the RAM OC benchmarks for the Ryzen 7 5800X3D with DDR4-3800CL16, but also for the Favorite Gaming Monitor and Stay on Windows 10.
In last week’s tests and reports, the RAM OC comparison between the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D and the Intel Core i7-12700K and i9-12900K came first. The three processors were allowed to duel again in benchmarks, but this time with overclocked RAM, with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D using DDR4-3800CL16, on the other hand, the Core i7-12700K based on DDR4-4000CL16 and the i9- 12900K on DDR5-6800CL32. At the benchmarks end, the more efficient AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D faces Intel’s Alder Lake platform, which is much more modern in terms of its motherboard and chipset. However, with the i7-12700K, the gain from OC is not as prominent. The Intel Core i-9 12900K processor with DDR5 memory can distinguish itself from other processors – at the cost of power consumption. In the poll in the test, the community definitely has a clear favourite. With about 83 percent currently, readers prefer the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D with DDR4-3800CL16.
Which gaming monitor?
In second place is the community’s question about which monitor is used for gaming on a PC or console. According to the current state of the survey, the majority uses an IPS panel for the primary monitor, with image quality and color space being rated most important before refresh rate. However, UHD resolution is only second to our readers, as most of them use a screen with a WQHD resolution, i.e. 2560 x 1440 pixels. In keeping with the importance of refresh rate, the majority are already opting for a model from 144 to 165 Hz. In terms of size, 27-inch is the favourite, which means that the classic gaming monitor with WQHD, 27-inch and 165Hz is very popular in the community.
Intel ARC A380 can also surprise favorably
The first test was followed by more tests on Gunnir’s Intel ARC A380, including AMD Ryzen, overclocking, and third-place graphics card fan control. This time, the test had positive surprises in store.
75% persevere on Windows 10
In contrast, the 22H2 update for Windows 10 comes out on top in last week’s news. However, Windows 10 22H2 doesn’t have any new functionality, so Windows 10 21H2 would have been Microsoft’s latest feature update for Windows 10 – Microsoft’s focus is on Windows 11. In the community, however, it’s not a long time lag , because the survey in the report reveals that more than 75 percent of readers have not yet switched from Windows 10 to Windows 11. So far, the main reason to stay with Windows 10 is that there is no reason to switch and that people are satisfied with Windows 10. Additionally, no Many readers love the new Start menu in Windows 11.
For those who have already switched to Windows 11 and don’t like the new Start Menu, we recommend again using the open source tool ExplorerPatcher, which brings back the old Start Menu.
For example, with Logitech’s gender-neutral input devices, GaNPrime power supplies, and Anker’s 140-watt power bank, the week was ready for some other very interesting news.
With the Flash Memory Summit, next week heralds news in this field. However, manufacturers are keeping several new products for Gamescom and IFA coming at the end of August, even if Samsung is already organizing an unpacked event on August 10, where the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4 as well as the Galaxy Watch 5 and Galaxy Buds will be presented 2 per expected. The Galaxy S23 isn’t expected to launch until spring 2023 – but then with Snapdragon also in Europe, and no longer with Exynos.
