The Core2 Quad Q6600 is over 7 years old which is a lot of processor lifetimes! This particular model has been included in the group test simply as a reference because of its exceptional popularity back when it was at the forefront of technological advance. The Q6600's four physical cores demonstrate exceptional overclocking capacity and often achieve in excess of 40% performance increases. Modern Quad core processors offer nearly three times more performance on both single and multi-core workloads. There have also been lots of non-processing related improvements in the platform over the last 7 years which include SATA 600 MB/s, USB 3.0 PCIe and more. [Mar '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]
