The Intel Core i5-4570 is a relatively fast quad core desktop processor based on the 4th generation Haswell architecture which was launched in Q2 2013. With a base frequency of 3.2 GHz which can boost to a maximum of 3.6 GHz turbo, it has a good effective speed of 93, with a particularly impressive single-core of 98. Unlike the ‘K’ model processors, the i5-4570 is not unlocked, so the max overclocked speed is limited. Whilst this is a great CPU looking at the 4690K versus 4570 shows that the unlocked 4690K offers 20% more performance but at a 20% price premium. The i5-4570 also features integrated Intel HD Graphics 4600 which is about 25% better than the previous HD 4000 Graphics but still not good enough to enjoy modern 3D games. [Nov '14 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 3 1200 is the second of AMD's new entry level CPUs which feature the latest Zen core architecture, as already seen in the Ryzen 5 and 7 series. Like its sister, the Ryzen 3 1300X, the 1200 is a four core CPU which offers fantastic value for money. Priced at just $109, this unlocked processor has stock base / boost clock speeds of 3.1 / 3.4 GHz respectively, compared to 3.5 / 3.7 GHz for the 1300X. Early benchmarks show that the Ryzen 3 1200 is worthy competition to Intel's six month old and currently 50% more expensive i3-7320. This may make the fact that the 1200 comes without integrated graphics more forgivable. The dual core, hyperthreaded i3-7320 beats the 1300 in single threaded tests by over 20% but the 1200 wins in multi-threaded tasks, scoring 10% higher for quad-core benchmarks, making the Ryzen 3 1200 a better choice for thread intensive workloads. [Jul '17 CPUPro]
