The Intel Core i5-4670K is the latest middle tier desktop processor from the fourth generation of Intel's Core range codenamed "Haswell". In terms of raw performance this processor slightly bests its predecessor the 3570K achieving approximately 10% higher server benchmark scores. In terms of real world performance the single core improvements are more relevant as more than two cores are rarely used for most typical consumer tasks and these have also improved by around 10% over the 3570K. It's not all good news though as the price increase of 14% more than offsets the performance improvements. This processor currently represents approximately the same value for money as its predecessor, the i5-3570K. [Jun '13 CPUPro]

The AMD FX-4100 is an inexpensive entry level quad-core processor. It was released in Q4 of 2011 and at the time was AMD’s budget chip on its latest Bulldozer architecture. Its base clock speed of 3.6 GHz boosts to 3.8 GHz in turbo mode and with appropriate cooling can be over-clocked to speeds of 4.9 GHz. Even though these numbers appear impressive, the real world effective speed only averages 59. This should be fine for general computing and even gaming when coupled with an appropriate GPU. It’s the FX-4100’s single-core performance which lets it down when compared to similarly priced Intel processors such as the Core i3-3225. Since the majority of daily computing relies single core performance typical desktop users will find better value elsewhere. [Nov '14 CPUPro]
