The Intel Core i7-5820K is the cheapest of three (5820K,5930K,5960X) new Haswell-E prosumer/enthusiast processors. The 5820K sports six physical cores and twelve threads which allow for enormous processing throughput. Unfortunately Intel have somewhat handicapped the 5820K by setting its base clock at just 3.3 GHz, 0.7GHz lower than the class leading 4790K. Comparing the 4790K and 5820K shows that the cheaper i7-4790K is significantly faster at both single and dual threaded workloads. The additional two cores found in the 5820K are not relevant to general computing and as such the 5820K probably makes a better server rather than consumer proposition. The Haswell-E X99 architecture also requires DDR4 RAM which is currently far more expensive than DDR3. Overall the 5820K is a very expensive option and probably best avoided by the vast majority of consumers.  [Sep '14 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1600 is one of four new Ryzen 5 processors released this month. Based on the AMD Zen architecture, which is comparable to Intel in terms of IPC, the Ryzen 5 1600 has six cores which is more than the vast majority of games are able to use (most games cannot use more than four cores). Ryzen 5 CPUs offer gamers better value for money than the eight core Ryzen 7 models released last month. With six cores the 1600 is approximately 75% better at multi-threaded tasks than Intel's quad core i5 flagship – the similarly priced i5-7600K, the 1600 however, has 25% lower single and 33% lower quad core scores. The 1600 has stock base/boost clock speeds of 3.2/3.6 GHz and its price tag of $219 includes a cooler. Assuming a modest overclock of 10% brings the 1600 within striking range of the 1600X which is the Ryzen 5 flagship. The 1600X sports stock base/boost clocks of 3.6/4.0 GHz but costs $30 more than the 1600 and ships without a cooler included in the box. The Ryzen 5 1600 is the best value for money six core CPU we have seen to date. [Apr '17 CPUPro]
