Average Bench: 68.7% (137th of 1083)

Based on 7,981 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]

Amazing multi threaded performance, cheaper than most intel options and when paired with a solid graphics card its a perfect budget choice. For 80GBP this is an excellent CPU, it can handle 1080p ultra gaming, Modest video and photo editing and even stays cool. Overclocked performance is outstanding with very cool temperatures. Please keep in mind to get the best out of any Ryzen CPU you will have to have very high clocked RAM

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.
