The processors tested for today's Linux gaming comparison included the:

- Intel Core i9 13900K
- AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D
- AMD Ryzen 9 5950X
- AMD Ryzen 7 7700X
- AMD Ryzen 9 7900X
- AMD Ryzen 9 7900X3D
- AMD Ryzen 9 7950X
- AMD Ryzen 9 7950X3D

All processors were tested at their stock speeds and with the "performance" CPU frequency scaling governor on Linux. With the non-gaming comparison up next week will be an even broader assortment of processors tested. All of these processors were tested with the ASUS PRIME Z790-P WIFI (Intel Raptor Lake) or ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR X670E HERO (AMD Zen 4), 2 x 16GB GSKILL DDR5-6000 memory, AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics, and 1TB WD_BLACK SN850X NVMe SSD.
