For 100$ that it is being sold for in Ali this processor is very good. Just imagine: used b450 for 80$, 100$ zen3 12 thread 5500 from aliexpress, cheap 40$ 16gb 3200mhz ram, and you got yourself a platform that will work flawlessly for 5+ years and chug games like nothing! Price may vary, but if in your region this processor and am4 platform are both cheap, they definitely worth the buy. Am4 is still a viable option [Mar '23 hladych]


Intel’s Alder Lake i5-12400F offers six hyper-threaded performance cores at an MSRP of just $180 USD. This represents excellent value for consumers and, in particular, gamers. It has a boost frequency of 4.4 GHz, 18 MB of L3 cache and a TDP of 65W. The F-version of the CPU does not have integrated graphics, however this will be of little concern to gamers with discrete GPUs. Whilst Intel’s overclockable i5-12600K has four additional efficiency cores and offers around 12% more performance than the 12400F, it also costs around 50% more. The 12400F offers great value, but to achieve optimal performance the requisite B660 motherboard (which supports 3200+ RAM) is, at least for now, difficult to find at reasonable ($150 USD) prices. AMD’s top value hex-core Ryzen 5 5600X offers similar performance for 50% more money. Despite Intel’s price / performance lead, AMD’s prolific marketers (forums, youtube, reddit etc.) have historically outsold Intel whilst carrying a similar handicap. [Jan '22 CPUPro]
