from completed build My First Custom PC

It's a $200 CPU that can break 1100 in cinebench with ease. I know that isn't the ultimate CPU bench, but it still gives you a pretty good idea of how it compares to other CPUs. It is also way easier to cool than current Intel CPUs. Overall, I am quite pleased.

Pros:

  • 6 cores / 12 threads
  • Comes with heatsink + fan
  • Excellent non-gaming performance vs. i7-8700k
  • MUCH lower cost than the i7-8700k

Cons:

  • Overall, much lower clock frequency vs the i7-8700k (and noticeably behind in gaming performance vs coffee lake)
  • Not much savings from the Ryzen 5 2600x and the 2600x has a much better heatsink/fan.

I'm giving this processor 4 out of 5 stars mainly due to the 2600x being the better value here.
