5 out of 5 eggs Outperforms Various Higher Priced Intel CPUs 05/05/2017

This review is from: AMD RYZEN 5 1400 4-Core 3.2 GHz (3.4 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1400BBAEBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: - Fast
- Inexpensive
- Runs cool with stock cooler
- 8 threads
- Superb 1080p gaming performance when paired with a 1050ti. Handles any game I throw at it with maxed settings at 1080p.

Cons: - I replaced an i5-3470 with this CPU and I did not have any noticeable performance gains in any applications that only take advantage of up to 4 threads. If an application takes advantage of more than 4 threads, performance gains are very small (less than 10%).

Other Thoughts: While costing much less than the following CPUs, it:

- Outperforms:

- Performs equally as:

Most i7 CPUs will outperform this processor. This CPU is meant as a solid competitor to the i5 series and will outperform most if not all of them. This CPU will outperform all i3 and lower Intel processors at stock speeds.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 65W ADO5000DSWOF Black Edition Processor

Pros: Purchased back in 2008. Overclocked it to 3.0Ghz the day I bought it and it's been rock steady ever since.

Cons: None. This chip is golden.

EVGA GeForce 8800 GT DirectX 10 512-P3-N801-AR 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: After five years of owning this card, it still plays new titles at lower-mid settings. This is one of Nvidia's jewels.

Cons: The stock cooler doesn't blow, and that's a problem. Literally the only downside with this card is you have to purchase an aftermarket cooler. I went fan-less and never looked back.
