The i3-9350KF is a 9th generation quad core Coffee Lake CPU which is designed to be used with a discrete graphics card. It has base/boost turbo frequencies of 4.0/4.6 GHz. The 9350KF generates less heat than its higher core "K" counterparts so getting a decent overclock without expensive cooling is relatively straightforward. Overclocking the 9350KF to 5 GHz with a $20 USD Gammaxx 400 cooler puts the 9350KF at similar single, dual and quad core performance levels as the 9600K, 9700K and 9900K SKUs. Consequently there is not much difference in fps between the 9350KF and any other CPU regardless of core count. At $180 USD the 9350KF sits amongst the top value gaming and desktop CPUs currently available. Comparing the 4 thread 9350KF to AMD’s twice as expensive 16 thread Ryzen 3700X shows that the 9350KF wins hands down in all five of today’s most popular games. The only other CPUs worth considering for unbeatable gaming performance are the 9600K or 9600KF which have 50% more, equally fast cores, for less than 10% more money.  [Nov '19 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1600 is one of four new Ryzen 5 processors released this month. Based on the AMD Zen architecture, which is comparable to Intel in terms of IPC, the Ryzen 5 1600 has six cores which is more than the vast majority of games are able to use (most games cannot use more than four cores). Ryzen 5 CPUs offer gamers better value for money than the eight core Ryzen 7 models released last month. With six cores the 1600 is approximately 75% better at multi-threaded tasks than Intel's quad core i5 flagship – the similarly priced i5-7600K, the 1600 however, has 25% lower single and 33% lower quad core scores. The 1600 has stock base/boost clock speeds of 3.2/3.6 GHz and its price tag of $219 includes a cooler. Assuming a modest overclock of 10% brings the 1600 within striking range of the 1600X which is the Ryzen 5 flagship. The 1600X sports stock base/boost clocks of 3.6/4.0 GHz but costs $30 more than the 1600 and ships without a cooler included in the box. The Ryzen 5 1600 is the best value for money six core CPU we have seen to date. [Apr '17 CPUPro]
