The Intel Core i3-4350 is a refreshed version of the Haswell i3-4330. The newer i3-4350 has received a 100 MHz increase in clock speed which translates to a performance improvement of 2.8%. With an effective speed of 93.5 the i3-4350 is no slouch and offers performance that's slightly above the average of the ten group leaders. Similar to the G3258, the 4350 has a performance profile which favours single and dual core workloads. Comparing the G3258 and 4350 shows that not only does the G3258 offer far better overclocked performance but it also costs less than half as much as the i3-4350. Although the i3-4350 is not a bad processor, there are relatively few use cases that would justify its price when compared to the stellar G3258. [Jul '14 CPUPro]

Intel’s Core i5-9400F is a hex-core 9th generation Coffee Lake desktop processor. It features base / boost clocks of 2.9 / 4.1 GHz, 9 MB of cache, a 65W TDP and it ships with a cooler but it does not have integrated graphics like the “non-F” variants. Although the 9400F is compatible with the enthusiast grade Z390 chipset it is normally paired with a better value for money B360 motherboard. At its launch the i5-9400F retailed for $180 but prices have dropped to the point ($135) that it now represents an excellent value proposition to gamers. Comparing the i5-9400F to the Ryzen 3600 shows that the 3600 is 8% better for quad-core processing but it costs 40% ($50) more than the 9400F. Ordinarily higher quad-core performance would result in better gaming but the Ryzen 3000 memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency. Gamers can invest the $50 savings in a better GPU, for example by upgrading from an AMD RX 570 to an RX 580. Since the GPU makes the most difference to gaming, the end result is a system which offers far superior real world gaming performance for similar money. For those gamers who demand the best of the best, it is necessary to jump to one of the higher frequency SKUs such as the 9600K but for everyone else the i5-9400F offers unparalleled value. [Aug '19 CPUPro]
