Custom PC — Issue 220
Issue 220 is all about Alder Lake, Intel’s revolutionary new CPU design that contains two types of cores – performance-focused P-cores and the more power-efficient E-cores. We review Intel’s latest K-series CPUs, from the Core i5-12600K to the Core i9-12900K, and try our hand at overclocking them.
In addition, there’s a deep dive into what makes the Alder Lake microarchitecture tick, and we see what DDR5 memory has to offer, with a feature on how it works and tests of two new RAM kits.
