Custom PC — Issue 200

Custom PC issue 200 cover

We’re 200 issues old! In this special 200th issue of Custom PC, we conduct an enormous CPU labs test, covering 6-core workhorses, 16-core monsters and everything in between.

We put 15 of Intel and AMD’s latest processors through our gruelling test suite, which includes both single-threaded and heavily multi-threaded application performance. We also use Metro Exodus and Far Cry New Dawn to gauge gaming performance.

Also in this issue:

  • Black Mesa
  • Retro tech: Slot 1 processors
  • GeForce NOW
  • Custom PC Issue 1 retrospective
  • How to 3D-print your own PC case
  • How PC memory works
