Upgrade - New System with Intel Alder Lake CPU

I suspect we will start to see some activity in this area later this month and in January.
I would be interested to see the experience of members purchasing Alder Lake computers or updating their current one to the new CPU.

Windows Task Manager is a useful tool to understand the loads on CPU and GPU(s).  For those upgrading, I wonder what values they see with the new CPU compared to their current one, using typical Photo software. Was the upgrade worth?

I also understand that we are in crunch regarding new Graphics Cards or DDR5 memory. It would be interesting to see the upgrade path being followed, given these constraints.

And, of course, comments on why one would not upgrade are welcome.
