The Core i5-7500 is not due for release until January 2017 but one of our users has submitted benchmarks for it already. We only have one sample so these benchmark results are obviously preliminary. Comparing the 7500 and 6500 shows that average effective speed is up by an impressive 15%. Although price details are not yet available the i5-7500 is likely to cost around $210 which would be in line with the prices for previous generations of this i5. We will revisit this summary when we have more samples. [Oct '16 CPUPro]


The Intel G4560 is one of the first Pentium processors to feature Hyper-threading. This means that although the G4560 only has two physical processing cores, it is able to process four threads in parallel by sharing resources between the physical cores. This typically results in a 50% performance improvement over two physical cores alone. Comparing performance between the lowest spec Kaby Lake i3 7100 and the Pentium G4560 shows that in terms of both performance and specs, very little separates them (even virtualization technology VT-d is present on the Pentium). The Pentium does lack AVX 2.0 (Advanced Vector Instructions) and it trails the i3 7100 by 400 MHz (10%) but there is no longer a clear divide between Pentiums and Core i3s. Intel have achieved an almost continuous distribution of performance levels for each price point from the cheapest Pentium to the top end i7-7700K[Jan '17 CPUPro]


Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) March 2018 CPU Rankings.

We calculate effective speed which measures real world performance for typical consumers. Effective speed is adjusted by current prices to yield a value for money rating which is geared towards gamers. Our calculated values are checked against thousands of individual user ratings. The customizable table below combines these factors to bring you the definitive list of top CPUs. [CPUPro]
