The third gen Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K can't really be described as a consumer orientated processor. With 8 threads and four cores its capabilities are better aligned to server use. For price insensitive consumers that want the best of the best, this is currently one of the fastest processors available. The PassMark Single Thread score of 2080 points put the 3770K right at the top of the pack in terms of raw processing power and real world performance. The GeekBench and PassMark scores of 17210 and 9653 are within 20% or so of the best we have ever seen. Despite the near record breaking processing throughputs the 3770K is only rated at 77 TDP, which is also very reasonable by historical standards. For typical consumer use there are better value propositions out there. [May '13 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1600X is the flagship processor from AMD's latest generation of Ryzen 5 processors which feature the Zen architecture. Following on from last month's release of the Ryzen 7 series, the Ryzen 5 series is positioned as a less expensive mid-performance alternative to Intel's i5 mainstream offerings. Once again, AMD excels in multi-core technology. Like the Ryzen 5 1600, the 1600X features 6 cores and 12 threads, but has roughly 11% higher clock speeds (out of the box) for a 14% premium. Like all Ryzen CPUs the 1600X is unlocked. The 1600X is the only Ryzen 5 CPU with a TDP of 95W, the 1600, 1500X and 1400 all have 50% lower power consumption of 65W. Due to its high thread count, UserBenchmarks show that at stock clocks the 1600X outperforms the i7-7700k on multi-threaded tasks by 23%, but it lags behind by 23% for single and 14% for quad-core performance. The 1600X is priced keenly at $249 so a more appropriate CPU comparison is the i5-7600k where the 1600X wins on stock multi-core by a whopping 81%. The 1600X does represent great value for workstation users that also game but its $30 cheaper sibling, the 1600 (non x version), which includes a cooler and has great overclocking potential out of the box is arguably the the value king in this segment. [Apr '17 CPUPro]

Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) June 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]
