The Intel Core i5-3210M is a third generation (Ivy bridge) mobile CPU. Sporting two cores and four threads the 3210M has a maximum turbo clock speed of 3.1 GHz which produces an effective speed of 64.4 or 52% below the modern day group average . For heavily threaded tasks the 3210M is handicapped significantly by its dual core architecture and lags modern CPUs by around 165%. The i5-3210M comes equipped with onboard HD 4000 graphics, which is more than enough for typical desktop use but will struggle with anything but the simplest of 3D games. With a TDP of just 35 Watts the i5-3210M allows for reasonable, but not brilliant, battery life. [Oct '14 CPUPro]

The AMD Ryzen 7 1700 is the least powerful of three new Ryzen 7 CPUs. The 1700 model has base and turbo clocks of 3.0 and 3.7 GHz respectively. Both of its more expensive siblings, the 1700X and 1800X, have higher clocks but they also have TDPs of 95 watts whereas the 1700 is rated at just 65 watts. Comparing IPC between Ryzen and Kaby Lake shows that Kaby Lake leads by a maximum of 9% which is great news for workstation users as this allows the 1700 to beat Intel's 6850K in multi-core workloads at almost half the price. Although the 1700 has great IPC it's somewhat limited by its relatively low (by Kaby Lake standards) clock speed which holds it back a little in both gaming and desktop workloads. For multi-core workstation use, the Ryzen 7 1700 represents the best value for money we have ever seen. [Mar '17 CPUPro]
