It’s no secret, for the last few years, Intel’s not exactly been on its A-game when it comes to desktop CPUs.

This trend peaked last year when the firm released the Intel Core i9-11900K. Despite costing a fortune, being pitched as “the ultimate chip for gaming” and having impressive clock speeds on paper, once we got in our lab the reality was it was overpriced and only delivered marginal gains.
