Average Bench: 68.6% (146th of 1110)

Based on 11,808 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F11 Model: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Quad-Core Processor

The Ryzen 3 1200 is the second of AMD's new entry level CPUs which feature the latest Zen core architecture, as already seen in the Ryzen 5 and 7 series. Like its sister, the Ryzen 3 1300X, the 1200 is a four core CPU which offers fantastic value for money. Priced at just $109, this unlocked processor has stock base / boost clock speeds of 3.1 / 3.4 GHz respectively, compared to 3.5 / 3.7 GHz for the 1300X. Early benchmarks show that the Ryzen 3 1200 is worthy competition to Intel's six month old and currently 50% more expensive i3-7320. This may make the fact that the 1200 comes without integrated graphics more forgivable. The dual core, hyperthreaded i3-7320 beats the 1300 in single threaded tests by over 20% but the 1200 wins in multi-threaded tasks, scoring 10% higher for quad-core benchmarks, making the Ryzen 3 1200 a better choice for thread intensive workloads. [Jul '17 CPUPro]

The Ryzen R3 Pro has a 1024 KB bigger L2 cache than the Core i5-7400 3.0GHz, which means that it, at worst, wins out in this area, and at best, will provide superior gaming performance and will work much better with high-end graphics cards.—Jan '18

Not as good of a value as the 1300X, but if you somehow don't have the extra money, this is a good choice.

Would be a 5/5 if ddr4 prices were reasonable.
