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]

The Core i3-3225 Ivy Bridge processor offers both superb real world performance and excellent value for money. For raw single threaded performance the i3-3225 scores 28% lower than the i7-3770K but costs less than half as much. At first glance one might assume that I am crazy for recommending a puny Core-i3 over the mighty Core-i7's but for real world consumer use there is simply no point in having 4 cores and 8 threads, they will hardly ever be used. All of the third gen Ivy Bridge Core-i3s are superb but the i3-3225 sports the slightly more 3D capable HD 4000 Graphics vs the HD 2500 offered on the other models. For real-world performance in an energy efficient package with modest on-board graphics, this is a superb choice. For most use cases including: email, surfing, watching movies, listening to music and office apps, this processor will deliver almost as good an experience as any other processor on the market. [Jun '13 CPUPro]
