2023 PC Hardware Releases: Discover the Future of Gaming
By Court Smith
There are some exciting new PC hardware releases on the horizon, and some have already arrived–here’s what we’re looking forward to getting our hands on.
2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for gamers and PC enthusiasts alike. Mark your calendars for the latest PC hardware releases: NVIDIA and AMD are both set to release new models of GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), AMD is set to release more CPUs (Central Processing Units) in its 7000 series lineup this year, and Intel may even release their 14th generation of CPUs as well.
Many kicked off the year by showcasing their upcoming advancements at this year’s earlier CES conference. There are a lot of amazing new components coming out that will make it easier to take your gaming to the next level, and some are already here. Let’s dive into what these companies have planned and what these new releases have to offer.
More GPU Models Coming for NVIDIA’s 40 Series Lineup
NVIDIA has already released the 4070 Ti January of this year, and they have even more GPU releases in their 40-series planned for the rest of 2023’s desktop PC hardware. These upcoming graphics cards will also be powered by the RTX 40-series Ada Lovelace architecture, NVIDIA’s most advanced and efficient architecture yet, and feature DLSS 3 for improved frame rates.
NVIDIA is rumored to be preparing two more AD104 die GPUs (possibly future 4070 and 4060Ti GPU models) for production, and recently notified partners about plans to launch the 4070 in April. 4060 and 4050 GPU models may already be in development as well, based on an ECC listing filing, but this is also an early rumor. These graphics cards should offer a lower-priced entry to the 40-series line, bringing a balanced option of price and performance to their new generation of desktop PC hardware.
AMD Radeon 7000 Series GPUs, 7000 Series Non-X and X3D CPU Models
AMD has also made some big announcements at CES regarding the upcoming new CPUs of their 7000 series line.
Their Ryzen 7000 series non-X CPU models have just been released this January. These powerful processors offer high performance at a more affordable price and lower power draw (TDP) compared to their 7000X models in this line. The new Ryzen 7000 series non-X models from AMD are sure to be a hit with budget-conscious gamers looking for high-performance next-generation hardware without spending too much money. All three CPUs should deliver excellent performance for gaming. The 7700 and 7900 should perform well for streaming or multitasking with multiple applications at once.
At CES, AMD also announced three high-end 7000 X3D CPUs, which will utilize their groundbreaking 3D V-Cache and reach blazing fast clock speeds of 5.7 GHz. These processors just arrived late February 2023. V-cache tech does its magic by boosting the L3 cache capacity by 64GB with an additional SRAM chip sitting vertically on top of the CPU. This PC hardware benefit is mostly seen in gaming, not so much in productivity applications.
AMD released a powerful new GPU late last year to launch their 7000 series GPUs, and this year they are expected to add the more accessible 7600 and 7600 XT to the series lineup possibly in Q2 (April-June). There are also rumors of a flagship RDNA 3 GPU that will utilize several multi-cache dies to boost performance expected to launch in 2023. With all these exciting developments, it’s clear that AMD is pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of gaming PC hardware.
Cheaper Intel 13th-Gen CPU Options and Possible Launch of 14th-Gen
Intel just expanded their 13th-Gen Raptor Lake desktop CPU lineup with new models, ranging from budget to high-end. All these new processors utilize the LGA1700 socket, feature lower power draw, are unlocked, and support DDR5 and DDR4 RAM.
The i9-13900 is a more power efficient variant of the original 13900K, and the 13900F is similar but with no integrated graphics. The i9-13900 has base and boost clock frequencies that are a bit lower than its predecessor, but only use 65 watts base and 219 watts in turbo. Intel also added an i5-13500, i3-13400F, and i3-13100F to their PC hardware lineup, with a similar theme: slightly lower clock speeds than their K and KF versions in a much more power efficient package.
Intel took efficiency to an even further level with six T series processors that will all be unlocked and come with integrated graphics processing ability. The most powerful chip in this series, the 13900T, has a maximum clock speed of 5.3 GHz, with a base power consumption of 35 watts that maxes out at only 106 watts in turbo. Base frequencies for this line are kept very low. These CPUs are all a bit cheaper than their K series predecessors.
Intel may also release its 14th-Gen Meteor Lake CPUs, and with them a more advanced 7nm manufacturing process to drive more performance. However, 14th-Gen may not make it this year, and may arrive in 2024 instead. We’ll see how things progress for Intel as the year goes on.
