The Intel Core i3-4340 is a budget dual-core four threaded 4th generation Haswell processor released in Q3 2013. At the time of release it was the top end Haswell Core i3 chip – offering great value for money, performance and power efficiency. It scores a strong effective speed of 89% with its base clock of 3.6 GHz which means that users will experience smooth and fast performance with the majority of desktop applications. Its two cores and four virtual cores are adequate for most games. The i3-4340 features Intel HD Graphics 4600 which are probably okay for playing some older games in 720p and are comparable AMD integrated graphics (for example, on the AMD A10-5800k) when it comes to 3D gaming. But serious gamers will need to have enough money left over after purchasing the i3-4340 to spend on a stand alone GPU. [Nov '14 CPUPro]

MORE DETAILS

Intel’s tenth gen, six-core i5-10600K is one of the fastest consumer CPUs currently available. Out of the box, its maximum all core frequency is 4.5 GHz, but a simple overclock allows all 12 threads to hit 5.0 GHz. Although a new Z490 (LGA1200) motherboard is required, Intel have indicated that LGA1200 will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. The eight-core Ryzen 3700X currently competes in the 10600K’s price bracket. CPU based encoding is akin to using hair clippers on a lawn but If dedicated hardware such as NVENC or QuickSync is not an option, the 3700X can outperform the 10600K in encoding workloads such as UserBenchmark 64-core, Cinebench, Blender-CPU and Handbrake-CPU. Meanwhile, the 10600K is better for almost everything else. Currently, the real problem with the 10600K, and much of the Comet Lake line up, is availability. Whilst there was a paper launch in Q2 2020, at the time of writing, the 10600K is still largely unavailable for purchase. In order to achieve better value for money, without compromising on gaming performance, it is necessary to consider the older generation 9600K which is 26% cheaper and offers similar gaming performance. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
