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 7 1800X is AMD's flagship Ryzen CPU. Clocked at 3.6 GHz with a turbo frequency of 4.0 GHz (stock) this chip offers a staggering level of multi-core performance. Comparing the 1800X with the Intel i7-6850K shows that the 1800X delivers 25% more multi-core throughput than its more expensive counterpart. Historically AMD's CPU architecture has had a much lower IPC than Intel's and consequently Intel have dominated the CPU market since 2009. Comparing IPC between Intel's Kaby Lake and Ryzen shows a maximum gap of just 9%. A very welcome shake-up of the CPU market will unfold as the remaining Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models are rolled out. For now the 1800X offers workstation users similar processing power to a $1,000 i7-6900K at half the price. [Mar '17 CPUPro]
