The Intel i5-4440 is one of the cheaper four core Haswell processors. Unfortunately it is clocked at just 3.3 GHz Turbo, which is 15% lower than the leading Haswell i5 and because it has a locked multiplier there is little that can be done about it. Comparing the 4440 to the 4670K shows that the 15% reduction in Turbo clock speed basically results in a 23% performance loss to the 4670K. The Pentium G3420 actually has a higher base clock speed and costs about a third as much as the i5-4440 yet for the majority of, single and dual-core, desktop orientated tasks offers comparable performance. I don't think the i5-4440 makes much sense and would prefer either a much stronger 4770 or the weaker but much better value G3420[Mar '14 CPUPro]

AMD’s Ryzen 5 3600 is a 6-core, 12-threaded processor which succeeds the Ryzen 5 2600 improving upon it by 13% in terms of overclocked performance. The 3600 is in competition with Intel’s 6-core i5-9600K. AMD continues to push the multi-core performance envelope: benchmarks show that the 3600 has a 27% overclocked 64-core lead over the 9600K but that the i5-9600K leads by 14% on single to hex core workloads which translates to 10% higher EFps in most of the today’s top games (e.g. PUBG, GTAV and CSGO). Additionally, the 3600's memory controller, although significantly improved over previous Ryzen iterations, still has limited bandwidth and high latency which adversely impacts gaming. Weaknesses in memory architecture are not readily picked up by CPU benchmarks but they are apparent whilst gaming. Cheaper CPUs such as the 9400F deliver better gaming performance in nearly all of today’s popular games. At $190 USD, the 3600 offers good value for purely workstation tasks such as film production but streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. The masterfully hyped Ryzen 3600 may well be the best CPU for multimedia producers on a tight budget but in today's market there are faster and less expensive alternatives for gamers, streamers and general desktop users. [Jun '19 CPUPro]
