The i5-7600K targets high end gamers, it sits just behind the flagship i7-7700K in Intel’s Kaby Lake lineup. The 7600K will likely be the most popular gaming CPU of 2017 (some competition from AMD’s upcoming Zen/Ryzen CPUs, would be very welcome). Comparing the 7600K and 6600K shows that the two processors are very closely matched and comparing the 7600K vs the hyper-threaded 7700K highlights the relative strength of the 7700K for workstation performance. There are no significant architectural differences between Kaby Lake and Skylake so, when fully overclocked, the two generations should perform similarly but Kaby Lake offers faster base clocks, improved speed shift technology which helps CPU responsiveness, and better integrated graphics[Jan '17 CPUPro]

AMD’s 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is finally here to seize the throne for high end desktop processors. The 1950X is the flagship of the Zen based Threadripper series which also includes the 12 core 1920X and the 8 core 1900X. The 1950X has a stock clock of 3.4 GHz increasing to a maximum single core boost of 4.0 GHz and features quad channel DDR4 and 64 PCI Express lanes. This processor is effectively two Ryzen 7 1800Xs glued together with Infinity Fabric (AMD’s scalable interconnecting technology), making the 1950X one of the physically largest CPUs on the consumer market. If you are considering this CPU, you will need a new X399 motherboard with a TR4 socket. Early benchmarks show the 1950X competing with Intel’s similarly priced i9-7900X. Whilst the 7900X has slightly higher single and quad core scores (10%-15%), the 1950X is around 35% faster for multi-core workloads. Content creators, and other core intensive task masters will not be disappointed. [Aug '17 CPUPro]

Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) November 2017 CPU Rankings.

Welcome to our desktop CPU comparison. We calculate effective speed which measures real world performance for typical consumers. Effective speed is adjusted by price to yield a value for money rating which is geared towards gamers. Calculated values don't always paint the whole picture so we check them against hundreds of individual user ratings. The customizable table below combines these factors and more to bring you the definitive list of top CPUs. [CPUPro]
