#1 – BOGS TOKS GRAMMAR CHECKER By now you should know that proofreading is essential for writing professionally because it gives you one last chance to fix errors before your content goes live. Below is a list of words to watch out for when editing your blog post! COMMON MISTAKES 1. THERE vs THEIR vs THEY’RE • There means here or in this place. • Their means belonging to them. • They’re means the contraction of they are.
- YOUR vs YOU’RE • Your shows possession, such as if you had bought something in the store and said, This is my sandwich (meaning the sandwich belongs to you). • You’re shows that there has been an action performed by the person saying it (such as if they were eating their sandwich).
- AMD A12-9800E with 4 cores, 4 threads and a max clock speed of 3.1GHz
- AMD Athlon 200GE with 2 cores, 4 threads and a max clock speed of 3.2GHz
Core i9-9900K vs. Ryzen 2700X
The performance difference between the Intel Core i9-9900K and the Ryzen 2700X is relatively minimal, but these two processors offer drastically different price points. For around $100 more, the Core i9-9900K offers an 8 core CPU that runs at a higher clock speed of 3.6 GHz and has 16 threads.
But if you want to save money on your processor and don’t mind saving it elsewhere, then the Ryzen 2700X may be right for you with its price point of $329. Plus, the Ryzen 2700X has only 6 cores, but they are running at a higher clock speed of 3.7 GHz and have 12 threads.
The tradeoff being that the Core i9-9900K will get slightly better single threaded performance and you’ll get better multi threaded performance from the Ryzen 2700X. I would recommend either one depending on your priorities. If you want value and low power consumption then go with the Ryzen 2700X. If you’re looking for top end performance and raw power then go with the Core i9-9900K.
Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX vs. i9-9980XE
Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX and i9-9980XE are a couple of options if you’re looking to get an AMD CPU. They’re both fast, but it’s unclear which one is better because their prices are so different. If your budget permits it, go with the i9-9980XE because the Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX has consistently failed benchmarks tests. For most people, though, I’d recommend going with the cheaper option—the i9-9980XE is a lot more affordable.
Ryzen 7 2700X vs. Intel Core i7-9700K
Ryzen 7 2700X Intel Core i7-9700K Processor Number: 2700X (1st) 9700K (2nd) Core Count: 8 6 Clock Speed: 3.7GHz 3.6GHz Passmark Score: 2,512 4,488 Maximum TDP Rating: 105W 65W Socket Type and Cost LGA 1151+ (1st) LGA1151 $329.99 (£289.99 AU$539) (2nd) LGA1151 $359.99 (£320 AU$589) Available Memory Types DDR4 2933MHz DDR4 2666MHz Available Memory Capacity Up to 64GB Up to 16GB Max Turbo Frequency Up to 4.3GHz Up to 4.9GHz Cache 18MB 12MB Manufacturing Tech 14nm 14nm Power Management Features Precision Boost 2 Precision Boost Overdrive XFR TDP Control No Yes PCIe Support Yes Yes Availability Mid Q3/2018 Early 2018 Dated Release Late 2020
Misc. Additions FreeSync Technology No Yes
AMD’s new Ryzen processors are some of the best AMD CPUs on the market in 2022. One of their best offerings is the Ryzen 7 2700X CPU, which features eight cores running at a base clock speed of 3.7GHz with a maximum turbo frequency of 4.3GHz. It also includes a cache size of 18MB, supports up to 64GBs of memory with its LGA 1150 socket and runs at a maximum power rating of 105 watts using its Precision Boost 2 technology.
Budget options – AMD FX 9590 vs. Intel Pentium G5400
The best budget processor is the Intel Pentium G5400. It costs $64, features a 3.7GHz clock speed and delivers excellent multitasking performance. Plus, it supports 8-threads which is great for smoother gameplay at high resolutions. As an alternative, you could get the AMD FX 9590 with a higher cost of $200 but still delivers good performance thanks to its 4.7GHz turbo clock speed and 8-threads too.
However, these aren’t exactly budget CPU’s so keep that in mind if you’re looking to build a machine on a tight budget this year. Still, there are better options than either of these processors such as the Intel Core i3 8350K or the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X.
