At a list price of just $129, the quad core, Ryzen 3 1300X is a great budget CPU. The Ryzen 3 series is based on AMD's powerful and energy efficient Zen core architecture as already featured in the mainstream Ryzen 5 series and performance Ryzen 7 series, both launched earlier this year. The 1300X is fully unlocked with a stock base clock speed of 3.5 GHz running up to 3.7 GHz for boost and has a TDP of 65W. The 1300X comes with AMD's Wraith Stealth cooler, but significantly, it is devoid of integrated graphics. Although this can be inexpensively rectified, it may be a stumbling block to those at the entry-level of the market. By comparison, Intel's dual core, four thread i3-7350K comes with 630 HD integrated graphics. In terms of effective speed, early benchmarks for the 1300X just pip the 7350K to the post but results in specific games will depend on the extent to which the game is able to use more than two processing cores simultaneously. The 1300X scores around 20% higher on quad-core tests whereas the 7350K scores 16% higher on single-core tests. The Ryzen 1300X has been released alongside the similar Ryzen 3 1200 which is also an unlocked quad-core with slightly lower base / boost clock speeds of 3.1 / 3.4 GHz and a slightly lower price of just $109. [Jul '17 CPUPro]

The Intel Core i5-6600K is based on the new "Skylake" 14nm manufacturing process. Sporting 4 physical cores with base/turbo clocks of 3.5/3.9 GHz the 6600K and its predecessor, the 4690K share the same basic configuration and disappointingly, offer similar performance. Comparing the 6600K and 6700K shows that the 6700K has faster multi and single core performance. The improved multi core performance is due to Hyperthreading which is the key differentiator for the i7-6700K. The gap in single core performance can largely be eliminated by overclocking the i5-6600K so although the stock effective speed is significantly higher on the 6700K, this gap diminishes significantly when both processors are overclocked. At a 30% discount, the 6600K is the better value gaming CPU. [Aug '15 CPUPro]
