The Core i7-7700K is Intel’s flagship Kaby Lake based CPU which is reported to have the same IPC as its predecessor, Skylake. Comparing the 7700K and 6700K shows that both average effective speed and peak overclocked speed are up by 7%. Most of the increase in average effective speed is explained by the 5% boost in base clocks from 4.0 to 4.2 GHz. The improved peak lab speed is attributable to a combination of better overclocking capacity and improvements in Intel’s speedshift technology which make the 7700K slightly more responsive. Kaby Lake also has marginally better HD 630 integrated graphics. The i7-7700K is priced similarly to the i7-6700K so for top end gaming and workstation builds, the 7700K is the clear choice for 2017. AMD’s Ryzen will release later this year so things could change at that time. [Jan '17 CPUPro]

The AMD FX-8320 has the same architecture and specs as the FX-8350, the only difference being the base/turbo clocks of 3.5/4.0 GHz for the 8320 vs 4.0/4.2 GHz for the 8350. Comparing the two models shows that the 8320 lags the 8350 at stock speeds by around 10% but broadly matches it when both processors are overclocked. This combined with the 8320's considerably lower price tag makes the 8320 the better value proposition. In terms of outright performance, as with all AMD CPUs, the FX series have very strong multi-core performance but lag Intel considerably in terms of single and dual-core throughput. [Mar '14 CPUPro]

Processor Rankings (Price vs Performance) September 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]
