TechPowerUp: Intel Core i5-13400F Review - Force of Efficiency

The Intel Core i5-13400F is only $200, but comes with six Performance Cores and four E-Cores, bringing the total thread count to 16. Performance is good, as expected, but what's even more impressive is the energy efficiency as confirmed by the detailed testing in our review.

IgorsLAB: KFA2 GeForce RTX 4090 SG 24GB (1-Click-OC) Review - Heavy, colorful, efficient and even a bit cheaper

The GeForce RTX 4090 is already very expensive as such, but there are also considerable price differences between the respective models and manufacturers

Hardware Busters: Super Flower Leadex VII Gold 1300W (SF-1300F14XG) PSU Review

After the Leadex VII Gold 1000W review, the time has come to look at the 1300W model, which has the same cable configuration, dimensions, and cooling fan. The notable difference is the increased max power by 300W, which provides more headroom for highly overclocked CPUs and GPUs. Given that some RTX 4090 graphics cards can exceed 500W under load, and CPUs like the Intel 13900K can get close to 200W, someone may wonder if there is a point in having such strong PSUs available on the market. At stock clocks, power requirements are as mentioned above, but at overclocked speeds, these numbers can notably increase. From the moment a high-capacity PSU has the same efficiency under typical loads, if not higher, compared to a lower-capacity PSU, there is no harm in getting a stronger than 1000W unit for a high-end system. Moreover, you should not get a PSU with maximum power close to your system’s peak power needs because, in most PSUs, peak efficiency is at typical loads, 40-50% of their max-rated capacity. If your system averages 500W power consumption, it is ideal for getting a 1000W unit.

TechPowerUp: XGIMI Horizon 1080p LED Projector Review

The Horizon series represents XGIMI's latest foray into the projector space, building on the success of the XGIMI Halo. Retaining the same exterior dimensions, the Horizon offers 1080p resolution and a slew of features also present in the more expensive 4K Horizon Pro, but at a much lower cost of entry.
