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]

Intel’s Comet Lake flagship, the i9-10900K, is the fastest gaming and desktop CPU currently available. This ten-core hyperthreaded processor can easily be overclocked so that all twenty threads run at an eye-watering 5.2 GHz. Whilst its stellar performance is second to none, it comes with a premium price tag of $488 USD. The 10900K also requires a new (Z490) LGA1200 motherboard, which Intel has indicated will remain compatible with Rocket Lake CPUs which are due later this year. Whilst AMD’s competing $420 USD Ryzen 3900X and $675 USD Ryzen 3950X do have a greater number of cores, their lower clock speeds and higher memory latency handicap them in non-rendering use cases. Overall, the 10900K has a 16% effective speed advantage over both the 3900X and 3950X. Users that do a lot of rendering should investigate dedicated hardware encoders such as NVENC and Quick Sync as these are far more efficient than CPU based rendering. Comparing the 10900K and 10700K shows that, when paired with a 2060S, the 10700K offers comparable gaming performance for 20% less money. [Jun '20 CPUPro]
