AMD's new Ryzens are the first desktop processors to support PCI-Express 4.0, which doubles transfer rates over PCIe 3.0. We test real-life performance gains using the 2 TB Gigabyte Aorus Gen4 M.2 NVMe SSD, which reaches over 5 GB/s in sequential speeds.

The new Leadex III unit with 850 W capacity has excellent performance and enough cables and connectors to power a potent gaming system. The cherry on top is the silent operation under even tough conditions. While Super Flower continues the good tradition of the Leadex name, it'll be hard to find their product in the US.

Cooler Master is taking the H-Series with its 200 mm front fan design and shrinks it down to the ITX form factor for the H100. On top of that, this small case includes a built-in carrying handle for easy transportation, all at an interesting price tag to boot.

We're testing AMD's 12-core, 24-thread Ryzen 9 3900X flagship on a cheap B350 motherboard. Performance results are good, even overclocking works as well as on X570. Special attention is paid to VRM temperatures, which we measure using a FLIR thermal camera.

MSI's GeForce RTX 2070 Super Gaming X Trio is the quietest graphics card we ever tested in this performance class. It is whisper quie even when fully loaded with the latest games and runs quieter than many competing cards in idle.

EVGA's RTX 2070 Super FTW3 Ultra uses a strong 10-phase VRM. Coupled with the highest power limit of all RTX 2070 Super cards reviewed today, the card ensures you won't hit the power limiter in gaming or overclocking. EVGA also added the important idle-fan-stop feature the Founders Edition lacks.

MSI's GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming X comes with a factory-overclock, as well as an improved cooler that offers the idle fan-stop feature the Founders Edition lacks. With only 200 W power consumption, the card is a great choice if you have an older PSU.

ASUS put the Super on a fully loaded ROG Strix OC board with DirectCU III cooling that's originally built for GPUs using the RTX 2080. Our testing shows impressive performance gains from the overclock out of the box, and the card runs very quietly, too.

EVGA's RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra comes in at $400, so EVGA isn't asking for a price premium over the Founders Edition. In return, you get a better cooler with fan stop and an overclock out of the box. Just the pricing alone makes this card a strong candidate in the fight against the RX 5700 XT.

The flagship of AMD's new Ryzen 3000 lineup is the Ryzen 9 3900X, which is a 12-core, 24-thread monster. Never before have we seen such power on a desktop platform. Priced at $500, this processor is very strong competition for Intel's Core i9-9900, which only has eight cores.

The AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT is based on AMD's all-new Navi 10 GPU featuring the RDNA architecture. We thoroughly test the card's gaming performance and look at power, heat, noise, overclocking, and clock frequency stability, too, sometimes with surprising results.

AMD's $330 Ryzen 7 3700X is an 8-core, 16-thread CPU that's clocked high enough to compete with Intel's offerings. Actually, its application performance matches even the more expensive Intel Core i9-9900K. Gaming performance has been increased significantly, too, thanks to the improved architecture and larger caches.

The Radeon RX 5700 is the second Navi card AMD launches today. Priced at $349, it is more affordable than anything NVIDIA has to offer in this segment, yet brings more performance to the table than the RX Vega 64. What really impressed us is the greatly improved power efficiency that's just as good as many NVIDIA Turing cards.
