We're wondering.. what's inside your PC? A brand-new Raptor Lake or AMD Zen 4? Happy with Zen 3 or Alder Lake, or are you still using some older tech?

Made the switch/upgrade to Alder Lake in 2022 february and so far I'm happy with it, might drop in a Raptor Lake 13400F late next year if I actually need it at the time/depending on the games I play. 'also depends on the pricing in my country as usual'

Hi,
With multiple builds x99-x299-z490 I'll definitely will not be building another system for some time especially not another intel.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
Zen 2 main rig (hopefully Zen 3 later in the form of a 5800X3D but out of stock at the present moment, or total switch to Zen 4 if i find good deals)

other rig, mixed but mostly Intel older than 8th gen for fun (and some AMD S939/940 also for fun ) second most used rig is under a i7-3770

actually, might go basic R7 5800X since it's priced cheaper than an Intel i5-13600K right now (heck it's even cheaper than 10600 and 11600 ) actually even the 5900X is getting cheaper than those :laugh:

It's a shame there is only one choice, I use three daily my main zen3 rig an 8th gen Intel laptop for personal gaming and a i5 10310U for work.

And that's not counting the steamdeck or spare zen3 jic system and a couple other non daily use systems.

I couldn't do with just A pc anymore

It is interesting that Zen 3 correlates with what AMD has been saying about the success of Ryzen. It is obvious that leaps are better than tick/tock. If the MBs were not so stupidly overpriced I believe there would have been greater adoption for Zen 4. I also bet that a large percentage of the Zen3 users will go X3D AM5 when it launches. I would go with 25-30%.

Currently using Zen 2 for 2 systems and 10th gen Intel for my laptop.
Considering upgrading my main system to Zen 3 since I really don't need anything more recent.

I think you're right on here. Zen 1 had the same issues actually except for the r7 1700 and r5 1600... Zen 3 had benefitted from people piling onto the zen platform.

The thing that saved zen 1 was the pricing and the fact that intel was on 4 cores. AMD were selling an 8 core that was cheaper and crushed everything in MT by a mile at that price.

Zen 5 with higher core counts and existing platform support has the potential to be a great product.

Raptor Lake (13600K).

My last CPU was Zen3 (5800x) sold that just before it tanked in value.

Where's ARM/ARM64, @W1zzard ? ;-) What about POWERPC?

---

Intel 9th Gen (Skylake) - SkyLake is not the 9th gen :-( It's the 6th gen. The 9th gen Core CPUs are Coffee Lake.

---
Sadly it's not possible to choose multiple options.

It's Zen 3 + SkyLake for me.
Coffee Lake is Skylake. It has more cores and an improved process node, plus better iGPU, and some minor tweaks.

Skylake is the architecture for 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th generation Intel desktop processors.

The reason performance still went up, was the continued refinements to process and minor microarchitecture improvements, things like vulnerabilities having hardware patches. Core count and frequency increased, but not IPC.

I picked Zen 3 as that's what powers my main PC, but I'm typing this from a Bulldozer based one. I also have a Deneb rig in regular use, and a good few retro platforms, mostly from AMD.

Benchmark Scores (My Windows daily driver is a Beelink Mini S12. I'm not interested in benchmarking.)
This poll should be multiple choice for those who have more than one computer. (I know I am not the only one.)

It should also include other common CPU architectures like Apple M-series and Arm.

It's debatable whether the poll should include mobile CPU architectures. I know I use my iPad more than most of my PCs.
