The Intel 5930K is Intel's new middle tier Haswell-E prosumer CPU. This model has base/turbo clocks of 3.5/3.7 GHz and sports 6 physical cores with 12 hyperthreads. The 5930K offers enormous processing throughput but like its Haswell-E siblings it lacks in single and dual-core speed. Comparing the 5930K and 4790K shows that the 4790K offers nearly 20% more single and dual core throughput and is priced nearly 40% lower than the 5930K. The 5930K does win hands down on multi-core workloads but these are not generally relevant to consumers. Finally since the Haswell-E architecture is coupled with the X99 chipset it requires far more expensive DDR4 RAM with offers little upside over DDR3. [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]

Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) December 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]
