The Intel i5-4200U is a dual core 4th generation Haswell processor. Specifically designed for tablets and ultrabooks it gives the appropriate balance between performance and battery life. The i5-4200U has integrated HD 4400 graphics which are fine for desktop use but not suited to 3D gaming. With an impressive TDP of just 15 Watts, the 4200U will typically give 6 hours of battery life. Despite the low effective speed of 56 which is 70% below the average of the leaders, when coupled with an SSD the 4200U can give a reasonable user experience. Comparing the 4200U and 4500U shows that the 4500U has 20% faster single-core performance but also costs 40% more. [Nov '14 CPUPro]

Intel’s Core i3-9100F is a quad-core 9th generation Coffee Lake desktop processor. It features base / boost clocks of 3.6 / 4.2 GHz, 6 MB of cache, a 65W TDP and it ships with a cooler. Gamers should pair the 9100F with a Z390 motherboard and unlock higher XMP RAM speeds. This will deliver up to a 15% fps boost which is well worth it considering that many Z390 boards are available for around $100 USD (here is one of the builds from our EFps test lab). The 9100F has great single core performance coupled with a strong memory sub system. This enables it to deliver excellent all round performance, easily holding its own against far pricier CPUs for the majority of use cases. The heavily hyped 12 threaded 6 core Ryzen 3600, paired with a 2060S, barely pulls ahead in any of the top five games. [Oct '19 CPUPro]
