Average Bench: 67.8% (181st of 1158)

Based on 25,056 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F11 Model: AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Quad-Core Processor

The Ryzen 3 1200 is the second of AMD's new entry level CPUs which feature the latest Zen core architecture, as already seen in the Ryzen 5 and 7 series. Like its sister, the Ryzen 3 1300X, the 1200 is a four core CPU which offers fantastic value for money. Priced at just $109, this unlocked processor has stock base / boost clock speeds of 3.1 / 3.4 GHz respectively, compared to 3.5 / 3.7 GHz for the 1300X. Early benchmarks show that the Ryzen 3 1200 is worthy competition to Intel's six month old and currently 50% more expensive i3-7320. This may make the fact that the 1200 comes without integrated graphics more forgivable. The dual core, hyperthreaded i3-7320 beats the 1300 in single threaded tests by over 20% but the 1200 wins in multi-threaded tasks, scoring 10% higher for quad-core benchmarks, making the Ryzen 3 1200 a better choice for thread intensive workloads. [Jul '17 CPUPro]

Great CPU even in 2019. Waiting for 3rd gen. Ryzen and bought this as tepmorary one. But it surprised me by low cost and high performance when overclocked to 3.8 without any issues.

I made the mistake to buy Athlon X4 950 first, i got rid of it and this CPU totally smashed it. Its exceptional because its the cheapest and weakest entry level Ryzen at all but still manages everything (huge L3 cache). In the past years have you seen a new model of Celeron or i3 beat higher class older CPUs in such a way? No, the only one now is i3-8100 and it came in response to all the Ryzens. It is also great, i convinced a friend to buy it (he's Intel fan) and he's very pleased.

The Ryzen R3 Pro has a 1024 KB bigger L2 cache than the Core i5-7400 3.0GHz, which means that it, at worst, wins out in this area, and at best, will provide superior gaming performance and will work much better with high-end graphics cards.—Jan '18

Not as good of a value as the 1300X, but if you somehow don't have the extra money, this is a good choice.
