Custom PC — Issue 232

It’s a double hardware special this month, as we test the latest cutting-edge silicon from both Intel and Nvidia. Inside you’ll find reviews of Intel’s new 13th-gen CPUs and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090 GPU, as well as a deep dive into what makes the Intel Raptor Lake architecture tick.

In addition, we also test Intel’s 13th-gen CPUs with both DDR4 and DDR5 memory, to see if you need to fork out for new RAM. Not only that, but some Raptor Lake CPUs have a load of overclocking headroom available, and we show you how to tap into that extra power for free.
