Latest PC Upgrades to Watch Out for in 2022
With the CES 2022 conducted right at the beginning of the year, you must be more than eager to know about all the latest technologies that you need to be getting your PC stream ready! Honestly, you won’t feel let down because desktop and mobile CPUs and GPUs dominated the entire show!
Here are the best 2022 upgrades for your PC
Without any further delay, let’s take a look at all the brand new PC upgrades that 2022 has to offer!
HP Omen 45L
HP’s brand new Omen 45L is one of the most powerful gaming desktops launched to date. It includes Intel’s latest Core i9-12900K processor and Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card. All this elite hardware comes packed inside an imposing case with a unique design that houses a 360mm liquid cooling radiator located outside its main compartment in a ‘Cryo Chamber’ (as HP calls it) that allows greater airflow and has higher cooling potential. If you are looking for the best all-in-one hardware, the Omen 45L is your best bet.
HP Z2 Mini G9
HP has launched its new Z2 Mini G9 claiming it to be the world’s most powerful mini workstation. The entire system has a total volume of fewer than 3 liters and comes equipped with the brand new Intel 12th Generation ‘Alder Lake’ Core vPro processors. The system can also support DDR5 RAM, a PCI Express Gen 4 SSD, and a compact Nvidia GeForce RTX graphics card within itself, which are very hard to find in a low-profile workstation. The system has everything to make it a pretty powerful little system for the future and a cool workstation for streamers.
Cyberpower Kinetic Series Case
Does your CPU often suffer from overheating? We all know that dust is a big enemy of computers, but side by side, proper ventilation is also very much required for the longevity of your PC. CyberPower PC has designed a unique casing for your CPU that lets out massive amounts of air through one of its cases instead of filling your case with lots of holes. The CyberPower Kinetic Series Case has a completely different front panel divided into an array of small motorized triangular panels controlled by a heat sensor. When your system is not generating much heat, the sensor will tighten up the front panel to keep the airflow light and reduce the inflow of dust. The front triangles will fold open when your system heats up and allow more air to flow through. The 18 mechanized vents over the front panel open and close individually in response to your CPU temperature. Forget overheating and just enjoy streaming!
AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D
Welcome the brand new Ryzen 7 5800X3D, the first AM4 CPU to employ AMD’s 3D V-Cache technology! The new design adds a second silicon die to the processor, giving your CPU a massive 64MB last-level cache (LLC). Enjoy the huge performance boost with the Ryzen 7 5800X3D, which AMD is preparing to launch in the spring and expects to outclass its predecessor Ryzen 9 5900X in many games and even edge out its competitor, Intel’s brand new 12th Gen ‘Alder Lake’ Core i9-12900K processor. Just the thing you need to ramp up your PC for smoother and faster streaming!
Intel 12th Generation ‘Alder Lake’ Mobile CPU
With the desktop version already launched last year, Intel is bringing out its first 12th Gen processors for the laptops too! Great news for all the laptop users. The chips will be using Intel’s new Performance Hybrid architecture that groups cores into two classes – Performance cores (P-cores) and Efficiency cores (E-cores). The P-cores are designed to deliver maximum performance with higher clock speeds and multi-thread processing. In contrast, the energy-efficient E-cores work on only a single thread that takes on the less-demanding tasks whenever the system has to prioritize one task over another, or when the processor demand is less. Intel claims its new processor family to be so powerful that it can even power up the lighter laptops besides hulking the gaming ones.
AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT
Running low on budget but need a new graphics card to boost the quality of your video streams? AMD has just answered your needs! At a time of such card-crunch when getting your hand on a decent graphics card is proving to be extremely costly, AMD has come out with their new Radeon RX 6500 XT. Believe it or not, the cost of the RX 6500 XT is just $199! Too good to be true, isn’t it? But it is indeed so. Though not the most powerful GPU, nor an evolutionary one, still quite powerful, the Radeon RX 6500 XT has been designed mainly to keep the modest earners in mind, to give them access to an affordable 1080p card.
With 2021 proving to be a harrowing year for PC lovers with the worldwide chip shortages and supply chain crunch, expectations were massively high for 2022, and it doesn’t look like it will disappoint.
