Depends on what you use it for. Performance is similar to an 8700k in gaming at 1080p. It exceeds the 8700k when it comes to productivity....

Probably look at MSI B450 based motherboards like the Tomahawk. They also support BIOS Flashback.

I would take Userbench scores with a grain of salt, considering their recent controversy. Don't trust a site that changes their score...

I don't understand why people make comments like this without any proof. For it's price, it performs pretty well. Did you have a look at...

The 2300 is a quad core cpu with 4 threads. The 2200 is a dual core cpu. I would please it on a tier above an i3 8th Gen. Plus it has a...

You also have to take into consideration that reviewers are testing at an absolute best case scenario with a clean install of Windows, with...

I don't think it is worth the upgrade whether it be a CPU or RAM. At the moment the i5 8400 is plenty for the 1080ti at 1440p. If you are...

Sorry but this never gets explained properly to the average Joe. If you are competitive gaming at 1080p ,240hz and are using a 2080ti then...

It would be more cost effective for you to look at the cheaper, AMD Ryzen 2600 (6C/12T), deal that was recently posted. Considering that...

It is heaver to use than a dedicated tablet due to the built in keyboard. Just the upload and download speed was slower than using a Intel...

Not the version on Amazon US sorry. It has 4GB soldered to the motherboard and another slot with a 4Gb DIMM. You can only upgrade if you...

I get about 7hrs of usage out of it, when set to better battery in Windows. Mainly Office and Web Browsing.

Yes it's Realtek 2x2 AC card. I just changed it to a higher spec Intel WIFI card to get an even more reliable connection. I already had...

Looks like the US version on Amazon maybe slightly different from other regions. The below comment is a review from Amazon US. "This laptop...

I have one of these laptops. It's known as the Yoga 530 in other regions outside the US. The RAM, SSD and Wifi Card are easily replaceable....

Despite the effort of the person compiling the data. There is significant error due to all the reviewers using different hardware and...

Unfortunately you forgot to take into consideration that your not limited to X570 with the AM4 platform. There are plenty of cost effective...

Very subjective comment. If it's based on a handful of game reviewes that's pretty biased. What about all the other titles out there. If...

You would have to check the motherboard manufacturer's CPU support list for each specific B350 to be safe. Youtube poster "Hardware...

Not sure where you are getting your figures from, but as someone who has been to Kazakhstan, their internet is definitely not faster than...

Intel releases CPUs with many security holes. The patches slow them down anyway,and don't fix all the issues. You have to disable features...

The comment in the last paragraph of the review matters significantly. "It is interesting that the performance of the 3500U is steady,...

Are your comparing a mainstream product like the 9900k to a HEDT Threadripper CPU? Where is the evidence to support your claim. With...
12/06/2019 - 00:21
Well maybe not. If you look at the 2700x on Newegg.com, it's $294 USD. Converting it to Australia dollars, ex GST, it's $422.58. A quick...
12/06/2019 - 00:11
With all the security holes in Intel CPUs, you would also need to take into consideration if their tests are before or after applying the...

What you are saying is incorrect. Laptopmag.com did a review of the HP Envy X360, where both machines were identical other than one was an...

Prior to 2017 maybe. However, with the launch of AMD Ryzen there are plenty of good laptops around. Also AMD doesn't seem have the issue...

Nothing to do with economic power. It has been proven that Huawei is far more aligned with the Chinese government than any of those...

Because Huawei has Chinese Government backing. Have you seen the discreet investments by the Chinese government in those countries.I think...
