The Intel Core i3-4360 is a good value dual-core four threaded Haswell processor. Released in Q2 2014 the i3-4360 is a slightly improved (+100 MHz base clock) version of the Haswell i3-4340. The 4360 is fast - scoring an effective speed of 93. It has 4 MB of cache and a high base frequency of 3.7 GHz which is fast enough to run all but the most demanding multi-threaded applications and games without even breaking a sweat. However, the integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 will limit the 3D gaming experience. For more intensive multi-core applications, it is worth considering the i5-4690 or i7-4790 (or their respective unlocked "K" versions) which are also refreshed Haswell processors. [Nov '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. [Apr '18 CPUPro]
