Issue Cover

Custom PC UK  |  August 2017  

After many years stuck in the CPU doldrums, AMD has finally made a triumphant breakout with Ryzen 7, but can its new Ryzen 5 chips really take on the might of Intel’s ubiquitous Kaby Lake CPUs? We thought it was about
time we found out, resulting in our first mid-range CPU Labs test for a long
time. In this issue, we’ve pitched Intel’s K-series Kaby Lake processors against AMD’s new Ryzen 5 CPUs, covering dual-core, quad-core and 6-core CPUs at a variety of clock speeds. Can the dual-core Core i3 still compete at its price? Is the Core i7-7700K still the go-to gaming chip? Has AMD effectively just risen up and burned all the competition for a laugh? The truth, as ever, is a little complicated, but you’ll find the full story inside this issue, where our Labs test pushes all the chips with a variety of tasks, including games, image editing, video encoding and 3D rendering, to find which ones offer the best bang per buck.
