The Intel Core i3-4150 is successor to the i3-4130 2013 Haswell processor. Looking at the 4150 and 4130 side-by-side shows that the only difference between the two processors is a 100 MHz base clock increase from 3.4 GHz on the older 4130 to 3.5 GHz on the newer 4150. The marginal 2.9% clock speed increase brings an equally marginal performance boost. Despite the academic performance gain over it's predecessor, thanks to its excellent single-core performance, the i3-4150 is still an extremely capable desktop CPU and will handle the vast majority of regular desktop computing without breaking a sweat. Coupling the i3-4150 with a discrete GPU will satisfy all but the toughest of gaming requirements. Only the lower powered but significantly cheaper Pentium G's offer better value for money[Jun '14 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 2600, from AMD’s second generation (Zen+) of high-end desktop Ryzen processors, supersedes the first generation Ryzen 5 1600. The newer generation sees a lithography reduction from 14nm to 12nm, but no increase in the number of cores and threads (6 and 12 respectively) over the ground-breaking first generation which continues to surpass similarly priced Intel CPUs in terms of multi-core performance. In other words, progress between generations is predominantly driven by power efficiency and therefore higher attainable clock speeds. The 2600 appears to have a stock base/boost clock of 3.4 / 3.9 GHz compared to the 1600’s 3.2 / 3.6 GHz which is expected to result in a modest increase in effective speed that said, early benchmarks are inconclusive. Included in the expected retail price of about $200 is a Wraith Stealth cooler, so the 2600, like the 1600 before it, represents great value for workstation users. The 2600 compliments the new 400 series motherboards and is also backwards compatible with the 300 series following a bios update. Even though the 2600 is plausible for pure multimedia production streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. [Apr '18 CPUPro]
