AMD Ryzen 3 2200G Review

The 2200G falls behind in heavily multithreaded workloads, but its gaming and lightly threaded performance is astounding for the price.

RECOMMENDED Intel Core I3 7350K

Intel Core I3 7350K

Not as cheap as we'd hoped, but it’s still potentially faster than a similarly priced multiplier-locked Core i5.

RECOMMENDED Intel Core i9-7980XE Review

Intel Core i9-7980XE Review

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Review

The six-core design makes this an appealing choice in some circumstances, but this is not for gamers (yet).

You might want to hold off until our Ryzen review, but this is a solid buy with excellent overclocking abilities.


INTEL Core i7-7740X Review

Great overclocking, but X299 motherboards are just too expensive to pair with this quad-core CPU.
