For what I paid, less than $50 (USD), this Zen-based 2-core/4-thread processor is hard to beat. On top of all that, it's able to be overclocked on most B350/450 and X370/470 motherboards with the AGESA update (or later). Plus, for that money, it has integrate Vega 3 graphics that are far superior to anything from the competition (Intel) at this price point. No, you won't be playing AAA games at 60FPS on ultra settings, but it will make do in less intensive or older titles, particularly the so-called "e-sports" games. Or, if you're simply wanting it for general desktop usage, you'll still get a very capable complete package. [Mar '19 Vycyous]
